Custom interactions + script that enable harvesting for children. They will use the generic Swipe animation for it, which is pretty similar to the harvesting one, except that it has a different sound and no prop.

Update 2016-01-28: Added the ability for children to talk to plants. They need at least 2 Creative and 4 Social skill for that; the interaction builds Social skill. Affects the same plants as below (i.e. not the lettuce -- for that you also need to have the current test version from the comments).

Does not override anything so it should be pretty collision-safe. The script adds the interactions to the base game harvestable plants, plus the orange tree from this thread (not the lettuce, because that has its own harvesting interactions -- they are now available for children too, but you don't need this mod for that).

Installation: Unzip the folder and put it in /Mods. It contains two files -- one .package and one .ts4script --; you need both.

XML Extractor, Notepad++, Python 3.3, s4pe.

The injector script is by scripthoge.

Great mod! Too bad it's not working anymore. Could you update it, please?

An Old Mod Gone...or is It?
Damn. I'm sad this mod is broken and sad to see that plasticox has indefinitely retired from modding. I always loved plasticbox's mods for years! Very helpful fixes and overrides for very basic but annoying, frequent things. Well! Here's to hoping someone will create an updated mod of this. I know I'm crossing fingers!

EDIT: And literally a second after I posted this and go searching Google, I find this here on MTS: Hurray! Someone did update it!
