I want to make a harvestable plant at ground height that doesn't have to be planted like the cucumbers, more like the trees, and I've looked at Echo's animation choices for their lettuce specifically. I've gotten that to work (albeit rather clunkily), but I'd much rather use the beach combing animations from BV--specifically a2o-combforseashells-beachcollectableportal-start, a2o-combforseashells-beachcollectableportal-dig-loop, and a2o-combforseashells-beachcollectableportal-find-stop as I feel like this would represent the process better. Unfortunately, I can't get the BHAVs to respond correctly, resulting in my sims crouching and then the tree is completely harvested. I've changed the names of what's called for in the text list, I've made sure the BHAV points to the correct names, but since this is my first time messing around with animations at all, I've hit a dead end.
(Ignore berry placement or the fact it's Aysarth's cherries as I haven't worked on that part yet)
So your animation will be attempting to run 0x1007 all over again, and again and again etc. I would try removing the event tree by zeroing out operand boxes 4 and 5 (remember, the first box is box 0) and seeing what happens. Or if you actually need an event, put in the correct BHAV for it.
