What makes Evergreen Harbor sims 4 so unique?
Evergreen Harbor is as closest to industrial city life as a Sims world can get. The first big novelty in the world is eco-footprints. In other words, besides your usual gameplay, you will have a new task – to promote eco-living. Sims who live here deal with real issues, such as smog, dirty streets, and lack of greenery. There are three Evergreen Harbour Sims 4 map neighborhoods, and all have different levels of pollution. The eco print varies from green, to neutral, and lastly, industrial.
The second greatest novelty that is a part of this world is community spaces. There are three of them in the Evergreen Harbor, one for each of the three neighborhoods. These are not just simple community lots, but spaces with a special purpose and assignments. These are:
- Community space – The default setting of community spaces.
- Community garden – The green space where neighborhoods can cultivate and grow plants and practice gardening skills.
- Marker space – A place for arts and crafts, where you can recycle things, or try some eco DIY activities. For instance, you’ll be able to pick up new hobbies, such as painting, juice fizzing, or candle making.
- Marketplace – Here, you can sell your handmade products, or buy them from other Sims!
Sims from the neighborhood can vote to turn their community space into a community space with an assignment. To change the purpose or assignment of the building, simply use the community voting board. Remember, only Sims who live in the neighborhood can vote. Voting is possible only during weekends, from Friday 8:00 AM and closes on Monday at 6:00 PM.

Can I change the eco-footprint?
The good news is, yes, you can. To see what is the current eco state of your neighborhood, go to the Live Mode Panel. At the bottom right corner, you will see an icon that shows the eco-footprint. In addition, you’ll have the power to make it not only better but also worse. The choice is yours.
There are two main ways to change the eco state of the place you live in for the better. These are neighborhood action plans and your buying habits, or the objects you buy. You can choose a Neighbourhood Action Plan by voting. There are a few initiatives to choose from. Your best bet would be to vote for Green Initiatives to bring back more greenery into the neighborhood.
The Eco Lifestyle brings awareness to individual impact on the environment too. This means you’ll want your Sims to be as self-sufficient as possible. For a start, this means growing plants at home and recycling. The objects you buy can either boost or make the ecological state worse. For instance, while solar panels and turbines have a positive impact, concrete objects or generators can make things worse. Some objects spend more power and water than others. Even bathroom objects such s showers or bath tubes will make an impact.
Alternatively, if you’d just like to build and play, as usual, you can manually disable the eco-footprint. After that, go to the Game Options and click on Eco Lifestyle. The Enable Eco Footprint Gameplay is checked and activated by default in Evergreen Harbor Sims 4. To disable it, simply click on the box to uncheck it, and smog will no longer bother you!
