How to Set a Decorative Object's Environmental Rating I have noticed that the Environmental score of decorative objects is often listed as high as 10 but the price does not correspond to this. As far as I have been able to determine the actual environmental effect of an object is [i]only[/i] determined by its price, whereas the catalogue Environment score number has no effect. In other words the score as shown in the Buy Mode catalogue is only a guide for the player but it does not actually affect a Sim's environment (room) motive.
To set the Environmental score that is displayed in the catalogue, use SimPE to adjust the ratingRoom value as shown under the "RAW Data - Catalog Ratings" heading on the http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=OBJD]OBJD resource page in this Wiki.
To actually cause an object to significantly improve a room's environment, adjust its price to an appropriately high value, as shown under the "RAW Data - Catalog Price" heading on the http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=OBJD]OBJD resource page. The ratingRoom value can then be adjusted to correspond to this price.
The following list of Basegame decorative objects can be used as a guide for setting the ratingRoom value to a number that is approriate to its catalogue price.
