It does what it says.
I never understood why the moment sims connect their house to a powerline all their buckets suddenly vanish and their ability to collect water magically disappears so I edited the "gather water" & "gather snow" interactions to not require the "off the grid" lot trait anymore. Let me know if you run into any problems.

alsdkf I'm just gonna fangirl over here, I love your mods :D

Yeah I am playing the history/decades/...challenges a lot, but "off the grid" locks too many interactions for my taste (like sims only being able to cook single servings, what's up with that? but idk how to fix that yet, meddled with the off the grid cooking code to no avail) so I figured I'd go the other way and unlock "off the grid" interaction for regular gameplay instead, so my sims can still gather water, etc like the peasants that they are but still cook proper meals like normal people :D

Is this compatible with the latest patch?

yes, the patch didn't change anything about the "gather water" interactions, probably never will
