I send my Sim to upgrade the tub or shower, and he waves his arms as though there's a routing error. I've tried replacing the tub with a different one, one of the same, a tub/shower combo, moving it to a different location, and none of those things work. All other upgrades appear to work just fine.

Upgrade and Repair Bug

★★ Novice

I have been trying to upgrade a bathtub with a new sim and I was able to add all of the upgrades until I hit the water recycle and siphon filter. Now she just has the thought bubble above her head saying that there is not a clear path to it, but she has not move since i put in the other upgrades. I thought that it was just the bathtub that i had gotten but it happen with others as well and now I cannot repair them when they break and neither can the repair man. It still shows the bubble for men and the repair man does not move. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [ECO] Can't upgrade Hot Tub/ Water Recycler using eco upgrade

★★ Novice

Hi, I'm also having this problem, but I'm not even trying to use Eco parts. The issue just started for me with this last update to the game. Did anyone ever find a solution to this? I'd really like to be able to upgrade my bathtubs with the water recycler. Thank you.

@ChantieDoesit Moved your post over to the new thread.

The other was about eco upgrade parts only. It seems it either escalated to all eco upgrades with either parts or they are separate issues.

Keeping them as separate for now.

@crinrict They're separate issues, as I never use the Eco upgrade parts, just standard upgrade parts (common and plumbing).

@HeidiGrrrl yes, which is why I moved the post above over from the eco upgrade parts thread to this one.

 

@ChantieDoesit was saying they don't use eco parts which makes it this issue.

All of my Sims can upgrade my plumbing stuff to have Water Recycling, it's just not showers, tubs, or shower-tub combos. I tried regular upgrade parts as well as Eco Upgrade parts, they're still waving at me complaining that it's blocked / something's in the way.
