This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Fixed the issue of harvesting at certain states for the Broccoli. Please redownload


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a random trio of veggies ( one of which I hate in real life )

Mod Description

Adds 3 custom Harvestables to the game -
1. Broccoli
2. Yam (Oh so different but yet so similar to Sweet potatoes)
3. Spring Onion

Broccoli

Details-

------ They can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Broccoli' the search bar for easy access]
------ Cost - Broccoli = 15 simoleons
------ Can be planted and harvested
------ Broccoli is tagged as a veggie , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require Veggies as a cooking ingredient. (Custom recipes to come )
------ Can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)
------ Pets Compatible
------ Growing season : Fall and Winter
------ Cannot be planted in freezing temps


Buff-

------ Eating Broccoli will give a +1 Bored moodlet - 'Super Bro' for 60 sim minutes
------ Gameplay effects -
1. Sims may occasionally react to you as if you have farted ( oops!)
2. Decreased Need decay - Energy (0.9x) and Hunger (0.6x)
3. Increased Skill Multiplier - Logic (1.05x), Fitness (1.1x), Child Motor (1.05x), Child Mental (1.05x)

(Since Broccoli is a 'superfood')

Troubleshooting

If the Plants do not become harvestable : -
1. Make sure , you are on the latest patch
2. Plant the fruit/veggie/herb 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


Requirement : Base game compatible


Made with Game Version PC Version 1.37.35.1010


Conflicts: Should not conflict with any other mod

I too was having the same problem with not being able to find them. So I did what you recommended and I still cant find them. I reinstalled after clearing localthumbcache and still nothing. Any ideas?

Hello! In the last update, Broccoli appears as shown in the screenshots -

1. Either by searching with the name 'Broccoli'
2. Under Appliances

What do you get on searching by the name ? Are you getting the plant ? And just to be sure what program are you using to unzip the .rar ?

I have all of your harvestables so I just type in the name broccoli, yam and nothing comes up. I've debugged, I've repaired the games I"ve moved the files cleared localthumbcache and then downloaded them again and still nothing. But I was having the same issues with some mods from littledica and I was told that sometimes the mods just don't work or they are conflicting with another mod. So I'm guessing that's what it is.

Hi! I sometimes do not get the time to answer all the comments until later. Sorry for missing your question! I used custom meshes and custom harvesting actions for the pumpkin and broccoli so sometimes the veggies come out with mismatched qualities. i am looking to find ways to add more variation to the quality and fix the issue

Thanks so much for addressing the broccoli and pumpkin issue. It's not a big deal if it is something you cannot work out. I appreciate all the time and effort you put into creating all these wonderful new harvestables and I am so grateful that you are sharing them. Having a few that are not "perfect" won't prevent me from using all these wonderful harvestables.

I love all the harvestables you create. I'm a wanna-be gardener with no talent....i.e. 'brown thumb' per my mom. My mother used to hide her house plants when I came over so they could stay alive during my visits! These mods help me absorb the wonders of gardening without planticide on my conscience! Thank you!
