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:


tested with game version: 1.63.134

My sims opened a gallery and the visitors keep stealing EVERYTHING. Can't even paint a wall mural without a Sim coming along and stealing it. This mod didn't work in stopping the kleptomania from happening for me :-(
