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 - 23, Jan, 2018

1. More chance of getting Wax and Honey
2. German Translations by Jevi

Compatible with Patch PC / Mac

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


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

Great mod for my urban gardener Sim!
No idea if it's possible or within the scope of this mod, but it would be awesome if the beekeeper box made nearby plants grow or evolve more quickly.

Hi! My game is in Brazilian Portuguese and the pie menu is showing only the images, without any strings, except for the "see" option. It also happens with your toddler food (only the choco one), no name, just the picture. Is it with the strings? I'll send translated strings in PT_BR in a moment if that's the case.

I think I missed an update to this. Last time I used it when I told my sim to smoke the box it was the sim who started to emit smoke and it followed him around when he walked away. Hugely funny, but now I think I shall download the latest version as he may just decide to make some candles.

You are a genius! I absolute love your mods, all harvestables and receipes are making my sims into farmers, yay! Thanks so much for combining beeswax into the candlemaking mod! (And also thanks for the canning station.)

My beehives are emitting green stink clouds? I've tried collecting from them, but the cloud won't go away... they also appear to be covered in dirt. Not sure how to fix it
