How it Works
Click on any mailbox and select “Basemental Eco Hacks”
From there you will get a menu popping up where you can alter the various footprint settings.
> First select the region, then select the district you want to change to Green, Neutral or Industrial. It is that simple
> Set the current district your active Sim is on to Industrialized, Green or Neutral
> Stop the footprint decay, ie. lock it in place
Slower Footprint Decay
> Slow down the footprint decay
If you slow it down or lock it, that particular item on the menu will be changed to “Normal Footprint Decay”. Click on that to set it back to Normal speed.
