I am having a similar issue. The Canning Station was working 100% fine and all of a sudden (while still active in the same household), it stopped. The sim will begin any recipe and stop without being able to resume. I removed all the build/buy items I'd added to the house and deleted the lot traits I'd added, reloaded the lot, but no change.

DISREGARD: I'm just an idiot. I didn't realize my sim didn't pay her bills so her power was turned off. Turns out the game will let you start a recipe, but won't let you finish, so I didn't even notice. Just make sure you pay your bills, guys! LOL

The Canning Stove (as well as all the other mods I have from you, which is basically all of them, minus a few functional objects) are working superb now. I started a new game and sorted through my mods, I guess something conflicted, but it's all good now so THANK YOU!

Gibt es ein update für die Canning Station? Ich mag sie sehr gerne aber der Aufsprudler in Nachhaltig Leben funktioniert nur, wenn ich die Canning Station lösche. Das will ich aber nicht. Bitte updaten.

The pickle pots are generating endless food, no matter how many times my sim eats or for how long, it is always full. This happens with jellies too, the only food that doesn't seem to go through this is bread with jam. I'm using the wip version, but as I'm not a subscriber I couldn't post there.

Hi Icemunmun, I download the canning station yesterday and now MCCC is recording an error. Is it conflicting with another mod?

I'm having the same issues. I downloaded all seven files and put them in my mods folder but I can't find them anywhere in game. Having the same issue finding the harvestables I downloaded too. I downloaded the chicken coop and some recipes and those ones are working fine in game, but I can't this canning thing to work.

I downloaded yesterday and I can't find the canning station or any of the related folders in game. Nothing is showing up. The game was just updated yesterday, maybe that's why? I downloaded some of your other content yesterday without any issue, but the canning and the harvestables are not showing up anywhere in game

Hey there! I love the mod, I just wanted to let you know that when I try to maked pickled eggs using eggs from my inventory I cant. It doesnt recognize that I have eggs in my inventory. I get my eggs from the functional chicken coop mod so Im not sure if the issue is that those eggs havent been made compatible or not but I would love if this could be fixed in future! Otherwise I absolutely love this mod.
