This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Update -3rd August

Texture fixes

Update - July 18 : Updated growing season

- Growing season : Summer and Fall
- Cannot be planted in freezing temps


Update - 21st June 2018 : Season Patch

--- Updated to Seasons Patch ( PC 1.44.77.1020 / Mac 1.44.77.1220)
--- The corn now can be planted. no need to plant the cornstalk
--- I have changed the slots for corn slightly so it will appear a little different


Update - 27th March 2018

- Updated so that harvesting the plant gives different quality veggies instead of only 'Normal' Quality.
(The veggie quality and the plant quality may not always match)


Update - 9, Nov, 2017 : Pets Patch

--- Updated to Pets Patch (PC - 1.36.99.1020 / Mac 1.36.99.1220)



Mod Description:

Adds a custom Corn Stalk to the game




Details:

------Corn stalk can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Corn' in the search bar for easy access]
------ Can be planted and harvested
------ Has 4 stages with custom meshes -
1) Planted
2) Seedling
3) Mature
4) Blossoming (harvestable stages)

------ Has custom harvesting action



------ Harvested Corn is tagged as Veggie (Func_Veggie) , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require vegetables as a cooking ingredient.
------ Corn cannot be planted (only the corn stalk can be planted)
------ Corn can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)




Information about harvestable size -

If the harvestable is small then, use the mod Debug Gardening Interaction made visible by me to 'Grow plant (+50)' a couple of times to take the plant to fully mature/blossoming stage (Harvestable is small if the plant is not fully mature)
OR
Use No Tiny Harvestables by LITTLEMSSAM if you want the harvestables to be the same size always


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Optional SP05 Popcorn Recipe override File

Adds Corn as a requirement for making different varieties(Buttered, Kettlecorn, Cheddar, Caramel) of popcorn using the Popcorn Popper appliance from Movie Hangout Stuff Pack (SP05)







Any mod that modifies the same resources listed above will likely conflict!


Requirement : Base game compatible (Optional override file will require SP05)


Made with Game Version PC Version 1.27.80.1020


Conflicts: 1) Harvestable Corn Stalk should not conflict with any other mod
2) Override popcorn Recipes - Will conflict with any mod that modifies the same resources listed above

Hey Icemunmun. Love this MOD and your other food/plants!
I have a weird thing just started to happen since the update and patch. I can no longer find (or see) the corn stalks. Also, I can not plant tomatoes, potatoes, carrots or onions?? Before the patch I had no issues. Do you have any ideas?
Thanks

Hey ? Can you find the corn ? You no longer need to plant the corn stalk..you can plant the corn and it will grow into the stalk. if you cannot find corn, try turning on debug and searching for 'corn' in the search bar!

Thanks for getting back, I appreciate it. The corn is very visible. I even tried to plant the ear. I get the option to eat it and the plant option is grayed out. My sim is Level 10 in gardening. Your other plantables work just fine. I do have the same issue with tomato, onion, carrot and potatoes from being planted as well, but those are EA ones?? Again, I sure do appreciate any guidance. BTW: I do not have your popcorn override (didn't before) would it make a difference?

Hey all the above EA harvestables and the Corn can be planted during specific seasons. Maybe that is the issue ? But you may also be having a bug since you cannot those EA harvestables. unfortunately the seasons patch has introduced quite a few bugs :/

Not having the popcorn override will not make any difference ?

Thanks Icemunmun. I hadn't considered the Season Aspect? I don't doubt the patch is buggy cause one would think you could plant potatoes and such indoors in a planter. I had done that before Seasons and the patch "fix". I will keep an eye out in the other seasons. Thanks for the idea.

Looks like you were on to something with the Season. Once I got out of Winter and into Spring, I was able to plant some of the veggies, not all, so I assume that they are not in season? Thanks for that point of view. Now all I need to do is find a greenhouse like in Sims 3.

You can easily build a greenhouse now that we have the glass roofs

If you hover over the plant, then the tooltip will give the seasons in which the plant grows

Can you attach the last exception errors ( corn and strawberry) to this thread so that i can take a look at it ? Are you getting this with any of my other harvestables ?

Can't understand why EA didn't include the world's food (CORN) in the BG. Well thank you for doing EA's job for them.

Default Season for Corn
I have the latest file for the corn harvestable. I saw that the notes said it was updated for summer and fall, but in my game it is still saying that it's only in season for winter. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue.
