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.
Adds a functional Beekeeper Box to the game

I always loved the Beekeeper box from Sims 3 supernatural , so I decided to make something similar for sims 4 complete with swarming bees.This will be a nice addition for all the homegrown gardeners and farmers out there!

Catalog Details-

---- Found under - Misc Appliances. Search by 'Beebox' (yeah...real original name I have got there...)
---- Price - 300 Simoleons
---- 10 Presets

Interactions Available -

1. View - The sim admires the object as its a piece of beautiful art. They get a custom Buff for their effort

2. Smoke - Smoking helps to calm the bees and allows the sim to collect.
- Custom buff last for 6 hours
- Small chance of failure where the sim gets a custom uncomfortable buff and ends up with smoke coming out of their body






3. Collect - Interaction only becomes available if the Beebox has been successfully smoked (Successful smoking will last for 6 hours)
- Will randomly get Honey , Beeswax or the sim maybe bee stung for the effort (A notification will inform you of the outcome)
- Each of the above outcome is associated with a custom buff
- After an outcome, you must wait 2 hours for the Collect interaction to be available again

Collectibles




1. Honey -
--- When in Inventory, a ' Craft Jar of honey' Interaction appears. This will consume the honey, give a jar of honey and custom buff



--- Honey is Edible
--- Jar of Honey is drinkable (You also get a nice custom buff)
--- Both honey and Honey Jar can be sold from the inventory and using City Living craft tables.

2. Beeswax -

--- Can be sold from inventory and City Living Craft Tables
---( Will be utilized later for a Custom candle Making Table I am working on)


Custom Buffs

1. Beehive - from viewing the Beebox (Duration - 3 hours , Mood - Focused )

2. Smoked Beehive - from smoking the Beebox (Duration - 6 hours , Mood - Focused )

3. Smoked Sim - failure action from smoking the Beebox (Duration - 1 hour , Mood - Uncomfortable )

4. Collected Honey - Collecting Honey (Duration - 2 hours , Mood - Focused )

5. Collected Wax - Collecting Wax (Duration - 2 hours , Mood - Focused )

6. Bee stung - Failure action of Collect interaction (Duration - 2 hour , Mood - Uncomfortable)

7. Sweet Honey - From crafting Jar of Honey (Duration - 3 hours , Mood - Happy)

8. Homemade Honey - Drinking Jar of Honey (Duration - 3 hours , Mood - Happy)

Thanks. I am not really interested at the moment in the mod right now. Maybe somebody else can update it ?

Thank you wonderful people for liking this

Are you concerned about these special boxes or just about their function? Coolspear has many objects of the game equipped with this function which look like they have a storage function. They can also be packed into the inventory and the best is, you can sort the stuff as well. In the one box I have only my collected Gems, in another the metals, in a metal cabinet from GtW I have for example the tuning parts stored ans so on. You only need an account at: simsasylum.com

I knew about that mod, I got it installed. But what I want, is pack furniture, and then, put the boxes in my inventory and move a part of my family with that furniture. Do you understand? I mean, that mod of coolspear is very good, but it isn't what I want. Thanks for helping

Oh, I can't wait to try this out! =D
I've missed this ability in TS4 a lot. Thank you for bringing it over.

I also love how the honey jar looks. It's a perfect upgrade into the TS4 style while still being absed on the TS3 style. Well done.

It would be cool if the honey would work as medicine when a sim is sick. :D

Here's the french translation. I hope I didn't mess the upload file type or something! I rared the binary file b/c sims4studio would whine if I put the string alone in a package.

When I craft jar of honey there is no jar. I am using Leniad's menu and crafting mods...could that be conflicting with it?

This is great! Thanks for this amazing mod. I tested in my own game and everything works fine. The different moodlets and their effects are really fun, as well, especially the smoked sim one with the smoke following the sims wherever they go. Got a good laugh out of that. Would be really cool if the honey could be used in some of the cooking recipes, or like some other comments I've seen on here have suggested where it could have some medicinal perk.

Thanks for this awesome mod! I love it, but recently I noticed something that made me wonder if it is supposed to happen or if it is a bug. I tried making a beekeeping farm, with 6 boxes, and whenever my sim smoked one of the boxes, the rest of the boxes got smoked simultaneously and the option to collect honey came up for all 6 of them. Same with the collecting honey, when my sim collected honey from the first box, the option to collect honey from the rest became unavailable, like they were all treated as a single box. I hope I explained this well enough.
