[NOT BUG] [ECO] Cannot Perform Eco Upgrades

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Eco lifestyle, University, City Living, Get Together, Cats and Dogs, Get to Work, Seasons, Dine Out, Holiday Celebration Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Obtain 2 eco upgrade parts, click a sink and select upgrade
What happens when the bug occurs? Upgrades that require eco upgrade parts still appear grayed out even though my sim has the correct number of eco upgrade parts in their inventory
What do you expect to see? The upgrade that I have the correct amount of parts for should be white and clickable so that my sim can perform the upgrade
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My sim has 2 eco upgrade parts, but the upgrades that require 1 and 2 eco upgrade parts are still not available.  I have tried this with and without my cc installed, and it still doesn't work.  I don't not have any script mods installed to my game.

★★ Guide

As others have said, it's not a bug. The tooltip is just confusing, but it works the same way as the other upgrades in the game. The tooltip is telling you how many parts you're missing. So if it says 2 parts, you're still missing 2 parts.

@Silfeh Sounds a bit like the issue the bots had in Uni. Can you try if it works if you have 4 ?

@crinrict I have the same problem with mine. My sim currently has 6 eco upgrade parts and cannot even carry out the upgrades requiring just one part.

I have 3 of the more expensive dew collectors. The first took like 5 upgrade parts. The last one required 9.

Hi, I'm not too sure but i think the issue is that the game doesn't accept parts found through dumpster diving, because when I made more in the fabricator I was able to do the repairs.

@Silfeh haven't had a chance to play the pack much but is there any chance to distinguish where you got them from ? Cause if not, .. still sounds like a bug

I fabricated mine and am still having the issue. I think it’s a bug within the game. Hope they fix it soon.

I fab'd mine and the quantity still kept increasing with each thing I upgraded.

@Silfeh Quick question: where did you get the eco upgrade parts?
