What happens when the bug occurs? When I return to home lot after visiting another lot, electricity always turned off at random.
What do you expect to see? For the electricity to work/permanently disable the Landgrabb event that bugs up the game. The game does not even realise it's mucking up the elecricity, just randomly does the events and the sims have no idea - no Suirrels/Landgrabb moodlet

Please describe the patch or change you made. Ever since Eco Living. Hate that pack! It ruined my game and caused all these Landgrab electricity problems.

When I return to home lot after visiting another lot, electricity always turned off at random. I would like to see the electricity to work/permanently disable the Landgrabb event that bugs up the game. The game does not even realise it's mucking up the elecricity, just randomly does the events and the sims have no idea - no Suirrels/Landgrabb moodlet

I would also like to know whether you bother to fix bugs? This has been going on for 9 months since Eco Livings release! Frustrated!

The electricity is on, my Sim will leave the lot, when my Sim comes back, the power is out, says the Landgrabs shut it off. The power will come back about two in-game hours later and will go back out again. The power keeps going in and out. No NAPs regarding energy efficiency are in effect.

@crinrict I have the same Power off Problem in my Game. 21 Chic Street appartment. Power goes off and never comes back. The game is unplayable in this status. I stopped playing in December because of that stuff and now I come back and its still not fixed.

@jewelblanco17 Yes I have had this issue on two different lots. One of families I moved to a different lot, not further power issues. Now it just happened on another lot. I moved her out then back in, issue seemed to be fixed. Now it's back again. Very frustrating...

Just happened to me too, in a custom lot I built on the Torendi Towers site. This is REALLY irritating. Kill this bug immediately.
