I might have to try that with my Random legacy environmentalist sims Joria. :) The junk they recover from the junk yard never seems to be usable, just replaceable.


I love The Sims, Candy and my cats.

It's so sad.  Back in the day before they "fixed" a good thing, you could acquire the junkyard stuff, hire a repairman to come in and then sell brand new things for a bundle of money with very little effort or cost.  Now it's just junk.  I'm trying out Roaring Heights next.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

So it went away with a patch? I don't remember ever being able to repair anything from the junk yard. It must have been patched between release and when I got the game or expansion pack.  Wonder if anyone has made a mod to fix the fix. Does anyone know of one?

So I took a shot at rummaging. It went pretty well! I would like to know who keeps throwing out butterflies though LOL. I went to the 3 dumpsters in the criminal's hangout and found:

First trip: Sonaflux guitar, Zepher Metalmark butterfly, Ladybug, Japanese beetle, Ubervision tv (sold that for $1200) 2 peices of iron, the exquisite bistro chair, cortinas festivals, the Prim and proper love seat and paper towels.

Second trip same lot, next sim day. Quick tick wall clock,  Lulu's artisan end table, Monarch butterfly, Bloomington lamp, 2 red admiral butterflies, Steak and prank microwave and a Saxory rug.

Just an FYI, Union Cove is HORRIBLE for dumpster diving!  When we built this gorgeous town I think we just forgot places needed dumpsters.  The only 3 I found were one each at the two apartment sites and one behind Little Samoht's Diner.  Haven't tried rummaging yet though.  It's heaven for klepto's with all those gorgeous cars!
