Eco Lifestyle - lost all Bits & Pieces

★★★ Novice

Eco Lifestyle - lost all my Bits & Pieces after the last update.  Cannot dumpster dive for treasures (only nap in the dumpster) or accumulate B&P after sorting through any trash. The recycler shows 0/0 and does not register any B&P finds.

@carlveluz1992 You haven’t said what the bits and pieces count is supposed to be? Did you just use them all up and not realise it?

Actually, I used cheats to add Bits & Pieces after Used all up.

@gac4sims I have to say, I had some situation (maybe a move, I don't remember) where I lost all of my bits and pieces, and I had a LOT. I was really bummed. So what I did - I figure this is fair play since I was getting back what I already had - is I cheated in money to the household that I used to I purchase items in Build and Buy. I put these items in inventory and queued up for my Sim to recycle them to regain the bits and pieces.

So it's the cheat that's not adding them ? Does it work if you get them the proper way ?

There's a known bug that they revert to 0 when you move: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-ECO-Bits-and-pieces-disappearing-after-moving/m-p/...

 

Questions to everyone

 

  • Can you get new ones ?
  • Do they disappear again after loading/travelling ?

My bits and pieces reverted to zero with the patch. Was coming here to find out if anyone else had complained yet. I had over 1,000 of each, and I don't use them very often. They were fine prior. It's not a huge deal, but it could be to someone who fabricates a lot!

@WildIrishBanshee Do they keep disappearing if you get new ones like on reload or travelling ?

I am having the same problem. After this recent patch. My bits and pieces are not showing even after recycling.

@simvasionThat is possible - but I had over 1000 So now when I accumulate more, the count still shows 0/0 on the Recycler but I can use the new ones I accumulate in the Fabricator.
