My sim has been searching for nanites in the wasteland and I am having a difficulty finding them. Several days have passed, so I believe the game should have generated them by now.
So far, my sim has only found one nanite in the wasteland. Yet, I read in the forum that there some areas of the wasteland where 7-8 nanites spawn at a time.
Where are these places exactly? Is it near one of the "lots" or is it far off the beaten path?
Also, I don't have enough LTR points to get a collection helper, but are there seeds in Oasis Landing? I'm having a difficult time finding any seeds either. So far, I have only seen the tomato plant near the downtown monorail station.
Finally, if anyone has the collection helper, does it work for finding nanites?
You can find some around the half buried house boats. Others just kind of dot the wasteland. I have found several seeds in the wasteland but I haven't really looked for any. I just stumbled onto to them while looking for nanites. I know I have come across watermelon and grape plants I just can't remember where. There are also seeds in the area around the monorail towers. I know I got a couple from around the towers below the graveyard when my sim was jogging.
Yes the collection helper has a setting specifically for nanites. I know I have come across watermelon and grape plants.

I went to the "wasteland" lot and I found around 5 nanites plus some crystal flowers and a few seeds. I did go off the beaten path a bit, too, but only found a few nanites here and there. If I read correctly, you can put on the power suit & it shows you collectibles. Perhaps this would help without you saving LTR to get the collection helper.

I've not tried it, yet, but maybe you could give it a whirl.
There's a lot in the spot between the crash site and the first beach, where the three crystal flowers are in a group with some sandy looking rocks. I've seen 5 or 6 different types spawn in that spot, regularly.
Be aware that they disappear between 11pm and around 5am so don't look for them late at night. I also noticed that sometimes you can't even see them until you get very close to where they are.
