Influence, Neighborhood Action Plan (NAP) List and Effects

You can vote here in The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle
Vote boards allow you to cast your ballot for Neighborhood Action Plans (NAPs) in The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle

Neighborhood Action Plans are a central feature of The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle. They are a new way of shaping the world around you on a per-neighborhood level. Well, they would be, but you are unfortunately unable to vote on NAPs outside your own neighborhood. However, the one you live in can have up to four active, so it's worth considering which ones you want, and understanding how the process works.

How to Use Neighborhood Action Plans

Voting for Neighborhood Action Plans in The Sims 4 is a matter of spending Influence
Voting on NAPs - and convincing others to vote - is a matter of spending Influence, the currency used in The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle

NAPs are voted on via the community voting boards in each neighborhood in Evergreen Harbor. You may also be able to use the mailbox. You may desire to place one if you are playing in another world. This is easy - go to the local park (and possibly any other public lot) and you can place a Community Voting Board. From there, voting will be open from Friday 8AM to Monday 6PM and the highest voted NAP will pass. During the rest of the week, you can work to gain influence.

Gaining Influence

Influence is the currency used to vote or convince others to vote. Voting directly costs 10 influence, while convincing another costs 5. There is no guarantee the other Sim will agree to your proposal, however, so it's better to build up a solid relationship with them before you try. This is not a trivially easy one where 10 friendship will do in my experience. Friendship (40+) may be needed to get good results.

Influence is gained in a number of ways:

  • Introducing Yourself to Sims This gets you +4.
  • Following Community Rules This gets you +2 (like fighting with Roughhousing Encouraged
  • Participating in Island Events in Sulani +2
  • Uploading Photos to Simstagram/Social Media Activities +2
  • Donate $10 +2 (may have Cooldown)
  • Becoming Friends, BFFs This gets you +8 each stage
  • Being a Civil Designer Some tasks give them 4-8 at a time.
  • Ranking Up in University Clubs +8
  • Being Activist and Joining Protests +8
  • Mentoring Other Sims in Skills +8
  • Participating in Holidays +8
  • Increasing Fame, Getting a Degree 15+
  • Donate $1,000 Simoleons 15+
  • Giving a Speech at Podium 15+
  • and many little misc activities I may have missed... I tried to find the good ones.

Repealing NAPs

It's possible to repeal NAPs, and may even be necessary when you hit the 4 week mark or so, because no more slots will be available. In order to repeal, you need only visit the voting boards and begin the process by selecting the one you want to repeal. Repealing a policy requires 5 signatures. After the period is up signatures are reset, so you have to get 5 before the voting period restarts.

I find it easier to manage gardens if I create a club and make that part of the activities it does. If you have Get together you can form clubs to do a lot of your household things like clean, repair, and garden. If you don't have Get Together, get a scarecrow I don't think he will count as a gardener :D I haven't tried it yet but that might work.

You need to add fuel to the generator and check that it doesn't need more fuel periodically.

Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...

I think this may be part of the bug with Eco Upgrade Parts. You can't use the ones Sims find in dumpsters, only the parts your Sims crafts in the fabricator, but after loading the lot, because both types go into the same stack- the parts are useless. If you could test that the energy efficient upgrades aren't working in a game with no mods and no cc then you could make a Bug Report about this issue.

RainbowChalicesays...

I'll report it then. I used fabricated parts and have no mods or other things. Thanks!

Petter B.says...

I hope EA patches the for this. There are no dumpsters outside of Green harbor, nor do all sims have the time or inclination to go dumpster-diving. The requirement to start producing these kinds of upgrade parts can play havoc on existing games where people in San Mychino or Brindleton Bay need to upgrade to eco-friendly appliances. Upgrade parts should be available to buy.

hey, anyone figured out how to use the generators when the power is off?

Gravatar

Baylisssays...

You have to build a surplus of energy before your power will allow you to use things as if you are on-the-grid. until you have that surplus, they treat your lot as if you are off-grid.

Gravatar
New
Chaslyn.says...

How do I do this? I am not off the grid, but my lights went out because it was turned off by NAP... I wanted to use my generator to power my home. How do I build a surplus of power? How many generators would I need?

Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...

Make sure you are Storing power on your Bills (click your mail box), then either use Bis and Pieces or Insect BioFuel and add that to your generator. Your Sim will auto turn it on after adding fuel.

Depends how many items that you have on your lot etc as to how many generators you'll need to build an excess of power. just keep checking the stats on your Bills, if there is a minus sign -  in front of the power number then you know you're still using more than you're producing.

Gravatar
New
Chaslyn.says...

My rate of change is +20. However, the energy bar is in the negatives. Does this mean that I won't be able to use the generator when my lights are off? Do both of those numbers need to be positive?

Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...

If you do not have any extra power stored then you will not be able to use appliances etc when you are Off The Grid. You can use the generator anytime you like as long as there is fuel of some sort in it. Placing down solar panels is good too. So yes the power and water storage meters need to be positive and with at least a tiny bit of green in the progression bar in your Bills Information window (click on your mailbox).

I would repeal something else instead. You can have both Modern Development and Green Initiative at the same time, they aren't mutually exclusive. The neighborhood will look amazing with both.

If you're trying to edit it in BB, be aware that Community lots have 4 phases. There's the default unimproved phase, community garden, maker's space, and market place. So you could make the most amazing community garden, but then you also need to get the community garden voted in so you can actually see it. There's also a trick to getting these lots edited right, so refer to this forum thread: https://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=31489.0

Yeah... I had a sim go to university, then move to Grim's Quarry. It had been more than 4 weeks, so all NAP's are in place. The NPC's chose Free Love, Juiced Community, Roughhousing Encouraged, and Sharing is Caring. It's good that the house from the gallery had a fence around it, so I could keep the gate locked till I got that repealed. It was like someone had purposely chosen everything to make it as chaotic as possible.

Sort of. If you go to Game Options>Eco Lifestyle>uncheck 'Enable NPC Voting, then the player is the only person who can vote and so therefore make a NAP happen. Your Sim still needs to be living in the neighborhood to vote, even with cheats.

Right, the game is designed that way. Your Sim can only vote in the neighborhood they live in. If you want to vote in some other area you have to load in a family that live there and vote as them - then mark them as unplayed (if you want to) and go back and play your normal sim in their own neighborhood.

Probably a bit late to the party, but I discovered that a really good passive influence gain is to just stream whatever you're doing with your drone, it's +4 like every 30 sim mins or so, totally passive, available to every Sim.

But if you wanna take the influence gain to a whole new level then the Social Media (Internet Personality) career is imo the way to go. Not only there are more +fame social network interactions which means more influence for every one of them, but then there is streaming Let's plays. The tuning on that must be broken, I am getting +4 influence every sim minute, which translates to 240 influence per just 1 sim hour.

I then switched careers back to Tech guru (Esport gamer) to try the Lifestream interaction and it's exactly the same, +4 influence every sim minute.

Adding a pic, I let the game run on speed 3 for couple real-life seconds and it looks like this. Will have to make a conscious effort not to stream with my Sims, because I don't think I should be able to outvote the whole neighborhood this easily
