Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
30.09.12 Update

Supernatural lot! A separate 2x2 lot with all 11 new plants, 1.38 patch required.

________________


________________

A dedicated sim worked its butt off to bring you a complete garden with perfect fruits, veggies and specials.
All ingredient harvestables from basegame and World Adventures are in perfect condition and can be harvested here by sims that are too busy pursuing other interests.

So, what's the deal with this lot?

I like for my sims to have the opportunity to harvest perfect quality items without having to start from scratch with nice items from the grocery store, not to mention the trouble of getting perfect flame/lifefruit, eggs, cheese, patty and steak.
Just place this lot in the neighbourhood and send your sims out to harvest the desired items.
________________

This is NOT a mod or hack, nor will it add any mods or hacks to your game. If you have problems related to plants and harvestables in your game, first thing to do is check for any outdated mods you've installed in your game.

Additional testing in a vanilla World Adventures game showed no problems with this lot.

Tested in a vanilla Basegame only, works just like in any other game, WA-plants just won't appear - so, yeah, it will look a bit empty

________________

This project started after I downloaded BlackCat,007's Ingredient Overhaul mod and wanted her harvestables in perfect condition as well.
The same lot with these ingredients* added is available for other users of this mod, grab the Perfect Harvest MOD VERSION.rar

*Cantaloupe Vine
*Dragon Fruit Plant
*Eggplant Plant
*Orange Tree
*Zucchini Plant

Goes without saying that you don't upload this to the exchange or paysites, thanks.


Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 19.248

Delphy's CUSTARD for reducing the file size loltastically.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love this lot, and now with new plants, it's even better. Will this need to updated for the banana tree from Showtime and carrot plants from Pets, or do we add these ourselves? If so, how do you make them perfect?

I would also be interested in knowing how you did this... I updated the garden in my savegame with perfect vampire fruit / carrots / bananas, but if I copied it to another 'hood those perfect harvestables wouldn't stick. I tried exporting, installing with the launcher, and placing in a new hood and it didn't work either... could you share your knowledge please?

Finally got around to update this thing - it's been a year of crazy studying, so again, apologies for not fixing this sooner.

I hope the people with issues have resolved them by now, if not, please feel free to PM me - I'll do what I can to help.

Well I can't look under the hood but nothing will erase the joy of gunning townies down in front of City Hall - suzetter

Hey you're back! Hope you've been okay! Thank you so much for this Garden, it is brilliant! The Ingredients Overhaul mod has been updated by Anak Ponti anak ponti Ingredients Overhaul so together with your Perfect Garden, our cooking sims can get back to doing what they do best! Will the MOD version still work with it?

Thanks for pointing out that it has been updated, I've missed that mod :D
After some quick testing, it appears the old lot with mod plants works just fine in my game - whoop!

I'll sacrifice the park benches and upload an updated version with mod plants soon.

(EDIT: no, wait, the benches are safe \o/)

Aaw I love the benches! So many sims just go there and hang out and sit on the benches and read and chat!

Thank you so much for this! Like several others who have commented I also lost a (nearly) perfect garden when I deleted a save game, I'm so glad I don't have to start over from scratch again!

Heya, I had to make a separate lot with the new plants.
It's a fairly small 2x2 sized lot, and carries all mushrooms and shrubs in perfect quality.

So, I placed both lots in my game. The original one works perfectly. Nice full perfect plants. But there are no plants on the supernatural lot. It might be my game, since I can't grow any of the supernatural plants anywhere else. Apparantly it's a known bug. But I thought I'd let you know nonetheless.

Thank you for this. I love it, even thought the SN one doesn't work for me now :P.

It seems this lot no longer works with the latest patch! Any suggestions?

EDIT: Easily fixed! I just had to delete the lot and re-place a copy. Works like a charm. Hope that helps anybody else who ran into the same problem

Thanks so much! My previous lot had the "corrupt bed" glitch where my sim couldn't sleep, which forced me to move to a new lot. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to raid my fridge of my hundreds of perfect fruits and vegetables; your community lot saved me the hastle of having to grow new perfect plants.
