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)

Look at the pictures...bees do swarm around the box : )

I was of the idea that the environmental vfx came with the patch and not the game and I did get someone to check without the Outdoor GP, but I will add a disclaimer!. Thank you !

Do you plan to share them with us? *give a hangdog look*


Oh whoa...how did you make all those out from the background picture! You have awesome detail detecting skills . Yes, there is indeed a plum, papaya and a green coconut tree in the background! I will upload them of course

And I will most probably be making honey recipes in future and I have grand plans for the Wax

Thank you so much everybody

I don't have OR but the bees are shown. SimGuruModSquad said that new effects are patched to the base game.

Hi! Awesome mod, I was waiting for it, I loved the bees in The Sims 3 Supernatural. But I want to ask you for something (If you can't just tell me), well, I loved a mod called "Packing Crates" from Scumbumbo, but for 1.14 version of this mod, it isn't working. Please, please tell me if you can fix it!
