Sweet manatee of galilee... It's that high?! That works out to a mean lifetime of about 3.3 hours of activity, versus 544 hours with your mod. Downloading...

I am looking forward to not having to repair the stupid cleanbot all the time, not to mention picking up all the trash it spews all over the place. Thanks!

 ::)Thanks for this i stopped using the robots exactly because of the constant breaking down and if you didnt spot them in time it took longer to moveobjects on and clean the crap up that any benefits you got from having them on the lot  Angry

Ah I lIke the odds of your mod.  Others simply make it so they would not break at all and it does not suit the way I play.

Probably someone at Maxis find it funny to see it break often, I don't.

I thought it was pretty funny. After all, robots do kinda exist to DESTROY ALL HUMANS...

If only they would "DESTROY ALL HUMANS" when they break.  Instead they throw trash or water everywhere.  Yeah! Roll Eyes

Funny a few times after that I prefer to see it less often.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think this one should be upgraded to annoyance? Those robots are a pain in the keister!

Considering it that a robot's purpose for existence is to destroy all humans, it seems only natural that robots go berserk and start destroying things as often as possible.

True, but the annoyance comes from the fact that the robots don't do an effective enough job of destroying all humans.  Grin

Maybe this means we need a "Robots Destroy Humans Better" hack, as opposed to robots breaking less.

The breakdowns are annoying, but I think your odds have gone a little too far the other way.  1% in 5 hours, means its probably never going to break down on you.  10% in 5 hours maybe?  or possibly 1% in 30 mins

As Maxis programmed it, you only really get a lot of breakdowns if you leave the hydrobot and cleanbot running all the time.  Do you leave your vacuum cleaner running all the time?  ... No, it would break down!  QED.  OK turning them on and off is a nuisance, but it's realistic.  I guess the breakdown rate ought to be age related as well.  Appliance reliability is much better than it used to be, but things do break down irretrievably in the end.

Unless, of course, you have to pay a small fee for the warranty and you decide not to get it, in which case it will break before you even get it home.

Most places have an implied warranty of 30 or 90 days, so it would break the day after that (check the tiny print on the back of your receipt with a magnifying glass).  Or at least the day after it cannot be returned. 

I think credit cards also have "warranty protection" built it, which might be up to one year.  Again, tiny print...

I've been finding that hydrobot and cleanbot still break far too often.  My earlier comment that the odds looked too low was utter rubbish.  Do you think you might re-visit this and lower the odds some more?  Odds closer to the munchie and security bot breakdowns would be good.

Here's how it's working in my game:
Susan Jackman's house in Meadow Lawns has a large lot with garden and some/all of the fleet of robots break down and run riot every day.  The munchie bot and sentry bot on the other hand almost never break.  I've already had one death by flies on this lot because of the breakdowns.  Susan Jackman has about 8 hydrobots to water, 4 cleanbots to clean up after the broken hydrobots and a servo to fix the robots (10mech points of course), cut the hedge and pull up weeds + crafting and other chores.  There are some unreachable shrubs, so daily gardener is not the answer.  I'd like the fleet of robots to work rather more reliably.
Meadow Lawns is 100MB RAR on www.moreawesomethanyou.com/cwykes  if you want to try the house and see how it works for you.

It is the rightful and proper behavior of robots to attempt to destroy their human masters. What else do robots live for?
