Mod Description:

Adds custom Cocoa Bean to the game




Details:

------Cocoa Bean can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Cocoa' in the search bar for easy access]
------ Can be planted and harvested




------ Cocoa Bean is tagged as Fruit (Func_Fruit) , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require fruits as a cooking ingredient.
------ Cocoa Bean can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)



Troubleshooting:
If the Plants do not become harvestable : -
1. Make sure , you are on the latest patch
2. Plant the veggie and not the plant/bush from debug
3. Re-plant if plant takes to long to go into harvestable mode
4. Use Debug Gardening Interaction made visible by me to check for harvestables
5. If the harvestable is small then, use the mod Debug Gardening Interaction made visible by me to 'Grow plant (+50)' a couple of times to take the plant to fully mature/blossoming stage (Harvestable is small if the plant is not fully mature)
OR
Use No Tiny Harvestables by LITTLEMSSAM if you want the harvestables to be the same size always

This and some of other custom harvestables (green chili, peach, and a lot of others I don't recall off the top of my head) aren't showing up in my buy menu for some reason (some, like the orange tree and a few others, are showing up fine, though). The harvested product shows up in the buy ingredients menu from GrayCurse's mod, though, so I can still get the ingredients, but I'm just wondering why I can't seem to grow them myself, I was hoping to have a nice big farm for at least one of my families.

If you cannot find it in the buy catalogue then try turning on debug and searching with the name of the harvestable.

I believe I have debug on (never entered the cheat myself, but I think I have a mod that does it automatically, but I don't recall, all I know is that I've seen items labeled 'debug' appearing in my buy mode menu, so I assume either there's a bug in at least one of the mods I have that is causing them to appear or I have debug turned on automatically), and still no luck. I'll try again in a bit with the cheat manually enabled and report back once I have done so with a yea or nay.

I completely forgot about this until just now, because I was focused on preparing for a convention I just came back from. I'll check it today or tomorrow and report back.

Confirming now, even with bb.showhiddenobjects (aka buydebug) on, I can only find the ingredient itself and a few of the harvestable plants. Most of them aren't showing up in plantable form, can only buy the end-product ingredient either from the fridge wth the GrayCurse 'buy ingredients' menu or in build/buy mode.

You need to plant the ingredient and not the plant hence only the ingredients are available. When you place the harvestable/ingredient on the ground, you will get the 'Plant' option. From there, the plant will grow.

Weird thing is, the first time I used it, the actual orange tree and one or two other trees, and bushes for some of the harvestables, showed up in my buy menu, but every time after that (even before I updated the mod), it was just the ingredients themselves showing up. But at least I know that now, thanks.
