A question for all - do you have the Composting Container upgrade applied to the toilet or have you used instant upgrade to apply all upgrades? According the the description, Composting Container may cause toilets to combust and start fires if compost is unused. I believe this visual effect may be by design since the composter deals with flammable materials.


This started happening immediately after I installed the composting toilet upgrade. If this is working as intended, it sure would be nice if “Unused” was defined better. It’s not even clear what you use compost for.

@PansekshuElle  Apparently the compost is to feed to your bugs in your insect farm, but yes it would be nice for some form explanation in the tool tip.

So I completely uninstalled everything relating to my game, set up a new administrator account and downloaded a fresh version of the game, MINUS Eco Lifestyle. All my sims were either obsessed with their clay, future cubes, baking cakes, doing push ups, making health potions on the grill and other things that I can't even recall at the moment.  I was DONE with that nonsense. When they decide the deal with these problems, I will reinstall it.

 

So after doing this, I went in and modified their homes and clothing to replace the Eco stuff with other stuff.  Shortly after I went in to play a sim, he went to the bathroom, and, guess what, there was fire in the toilet when he went to pee!!!!  

 

I don't have any mods or cc in this new install. I even disabled them in game settings. I can't even imagine what is causing this but rest assured it is NOT the composting toilet.

I had upgraded my toilet to be Eco friendly and when my Sim went to use it, she caught on fire!  Fortunately the family acted quickly and ran in to put both her and the toilet out.  If the toilet isn't upgraded then there's no fire, but it's kind of annoying since I want everything upgraded.  And when I upgraded I DIDN'T use the compost option, but toilet still caught on fire.

This happens with all my sims on all lots, and I don't even have the eco expansion, so that can't be cause. Loving how utterly broken this game is!
