I haven't tested it with other toilets yet (this is the 'too cool for number two' toilet), but... I don't think this is right...

(insert 'should see a doctor about that' joke here)

I have the same issue. My female sim sits on the toilet and the Flames are underneath the toilet. The Flames are onyl visible with toilets hanging on the wall. With toilets Standing on the Ground the Flames are not visible.

@MapleSimmer I can confirm this with my female sim... and I could see it from the floor beneath:
I'm on Mac, all packs, no Mods or CC ever.

This seems to be a potentially unwanted behavior from the Eco Living pack, specifically when not owned/installed, which is almost everybody at this moment.

Toilets have a 50% chance of burning when you complete the eco-living composting container upgrade and when you don't own an insect farm.

It looks like the composting container upgrade test assumes it as completed by default and you cannot own an insect farm yet. This results in burning toilets.

Perhaps that's a bug.

It also happens to both my male and female sims while living off the grid. NGL when I first saw it it was with the toilet that came with the Vampires pack. So I thought it was some sort of cool effect LOL
