This mod requires CCLoader.

This mod contains a harvestable Banana Plant that produces Banana Ingredient.

If you have Showtime Expansion Pack (Optional ), this mod will replace the "Banana Tree" from the EP, but planted trees will still be available until you manually remove them. Also, you will still be able to plant the "old" Banana Ingredient to get your "Banana Tree" back.

Doesn't require Showtime Expansion Pack

Version 1.1, to avoid some reported problems this mod won't replace the "banana tree", from Showtime Expansion Pack, anymore. This way you will be able to buy both ingredients from the grocery store (The Banana ingredient from this mod contains a "*" in the name).

Additional Information:
- You can buy Bananas from the Grocery Store too.

Known Issues:
- To make the Banana's "Plant" interaction available, you need to add the fruit inside the sims's inventory.


Polygon Counts:
Banana: 600 vertices 800 polygons
Banana Plant Low: 700 vertices 1200 polygons
Banana Plant High: 1700 vertices 2200 polygons

The banana tree was gone. So were the harvested bananas. couldn't find them in the fridge or in anyone's inventory. Today one of the girls found a coconut seed and planted it. It has already sprouted. Guess they will have to do to the grocery to buy bananas to plant. I have never used autosoils before but I thought they were supposed to act just like a plant grown from seed and not disappear.

I have the exact same problem!
At first I thought it was because I had the old version, but it doesn't work with the updated banana tree either. The wierd thing though is that I have no problems with the coconut tree. Does anyone know whats wrong?

I love your mods. Hope you make another one. Especially your Service Mods are cool. I hope you make one for the sculpturing Station, would be fine to have your own little manufractur. Have a nice day.

Do you also have the CCLoader mod installed? The link to it is right at the top of the mod's description, where the little flashing things are. Once you've clicked that link, scroll to the bottom of the first post and download the file. Unzip it and place the package file in your Mods/Packages folder together with the BananaPlant_v1.1 file.

If that isn't the problem, maybe you can give us some more details of what you've already tried and what exactly is happening in-game? :-)

I'm at 1.69. The V1.1 banana tree doesn't work in my game, either.
I swapped it out with the V1.0 version, and that one works just fine.
The Coconut Tree works too.
