Fixed another LE which was occurring with the 'Make Jam' Interaction for 'icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA'

--- Fixed the Club interaction

Update - 20, Jan 2018 : New Preserves

5. Added Ingredient Optional Packages for the preserves - Ingredient requirement for preserve making is optional

Choose Ingredient Optional version if you want the sims to be able to make the preserves without the specific ingredient in their inventory. ( If you want the preserves to always require inventory simply choose icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_Custom ).Do not put both icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA_IngredientOptional in your game. Choose only one. Same for the custom ingredient preserve.

It's something going on with my computer. After reinstalling it I got the first three to work but then my screen flashed black and after that my sim couldn't do them again.

Hi icemunmun! I love this mod, playing as a fairy is a lot of fun and my current Sim is so cute! My girl's voice, however, is kind of wonky. At normal speed, her voice has been raised to sound as if it's sped up, but when playing at fast speed, she sounds normal. It's not a bother, just something I wanted to mention. Thanks for all your great work for The Sims!!!

Hello.
I just want to ask if it was possible to use the basis of this mod to make a mod for the production of wine from grapes?
I mean here the production, get the wine in bottles and sell the bottles in a store.

That is strange! This is an object mod and so should not affect sim's voices in any way... Will check with the fairy mod once I get some time

You can get wine and liquor at Leniad's Cupboard on Sims 4 Studio. There isn't a nectar make like in Sims 3 for the wine, but there is a distillery for the liquor.

I know you need crinrict's resource.cfg file in order for some mods to function. Could this be a possible reason it doesn't work for you?

Download the base file, the retail shelves file, the plate file and then for the Preserves_EA and the Preserves_Custom choose whether or not your want the ingredients to be required or optional.

Hi, I've found that after the Jungle Adventure patch that the canning station is giving me LEs. Hopefully the attached LE file works, or the text from it pasted below:

You need the Base + Black Plate + preserves. These LEs pop up if the black plate is missing Hope that helps!

I'm having this issue as well. The maid will spend hours putting all of my sims preserves in the fridge. Naturally the fridge is overly full of every type of produce known to Simkind and it becomes a pain to try to find anything. I definitely would prefer to keep the preserves on the lovely shelves that were intended for them. Anything I can do other than placing the preserves shelf in a vault?

I made a grocery/liquor store/bakery that sells prepared meals by Icemunmun, Leniad and others. It is on the gallery as Emma's Shops under the username Wingity. All meals were prepared by my sim, Emma and are of excellent or better quality. The lot is styled for Windenburg and contains a huge selection of cc and ea recipes.
