Description:

This is a small xml override mod for Eco Lifestyle to fix the problem of sims turning into crazy kleptomaniacs when the "Sharing is Caring" neighborhood action plan is active.


Previously, sims could steal any of these objects: lights, easel, couch, computer, tv, stereo, instrument, living chair, video game, vase, stool, art, pet bowl, pet toy, book, sink, counter, table


I made it so that they can only steal pet toys. This way they still have something to "share"...

UPDATE: I added a version where not even pet toys can be shared. Choose which one you prefer, don't use both!


Now your lots are safe!


XML change:

S4_E882D22F_0000001E_000000000003A643_autonomousObjectTaggedPickerInteraction_Klepto_Swipe_CivicPolicy_CommunalOwnership


tested with game version: 1.63.134

Just wanted to add my thanks it'd be fine if they took "essential items" like some fruit from a tree or only from more wealthy households and if it was sharing. This however is . . . "Oh my that's a nice laptop but it'd look better in our $200,000 house than your dinky little $30,000 one" and then they just walk off with something they don't even use. So with no laptop you go to the park to play on the . . . oh someone's knicked everything from the community lot to put in their private house. Bleh.

I wish there was a pop up asking me if they could take whatever it is. IDC what neighborhood policies are in place, if you come to my house and things are suddenly missing you're never being allowed back in.

The only good thing about thieves breaking into my house to thieve from my poor sims is it gave my Vampire someone to bleed dry without regret.
Thank you for making this mod!! Hopefully I have this installed in time to save my community lots, yikes

Outstanding work.
Thank you so very much for your mod.

My Sims were stealing from my businesses and I couldn't remember what exactly was in that spot they stole from.

Hey there - will this mod be updated? They are still stealing from communities and businesses even with the mod installed. They aren't stealing from my house anymore though.

Are they? I've modded the same file, and after several tests, I think it is working in preventing stealing from non-residential and dorm (this one not tested). I've pm'ed OP to let know if he/she could integrate a few lines into his/her mod once he/she decided to update it .


Edit 2020.08.21: Seeing that it's been so long, I decided to upload the file (with only pet toys are allowed to be stolen), assuming the recent patch hasn't addressed the issue. It uses the same file as this mod's, so remove it first.

Thank you soooo much! Holy crap, this is the worst feature the game has ever introduced. Threw a party and the guests stole all my counters, my couch and my TV, it's so irritating.

I found Sharing Is Caring mildly annoying until I sent a sim to College and couldnt replace stolen things and cant go into buy mode unless I exit the household and edit from the neighborhood.

Default Update mod after most recent update?
Hey there, do we have an update for this mod? It was a lifesaver but it doesn't work after the latest update.

I really appreciate it!
