Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
30.09.12 Update

Supernatural lot! A separate 2x2 lot with all 11 new plants, 1.38 patch required.

________________


________________

A dedicated sim worked its butt off to bring you a complete garden with perfect fruits, veggies and specials.
All ingredient harvestables from basegame and World Adventures are in perfect condition and can be harvested here by sims that are too busy pursuing other interests.

So, what's the deal with this lot?

I like for my sims to have the opportunity to harvest perfect quality items without having to start from scratch with nice items from the grocery store, not to mention the trouble of getting perfect flame/lifefruit, eggs, cheese, patty and steak.
Just place this lot in the neighbourhood and send your sims out to harvest the desired items.
________________

This is NOT a mod or hack, nor will it add any mods or hacks to your game. If you have problems related to plants and harvestables in your game, first thing to do is check for any outdated mods you've installed in your game.

Additional testing in a vanilla World Adventures game showed no problems with this lot.

Tested in a vanilla Basegame only, works just like in any other game, WA-plants just won't appear - so, yeah, it will look a bit empty

This project started after I downloaded BlackCat,007's Ingredient Overhaul mod and wanted her harvestables in perfect condition as well.
The same lot with these ingredients* added is available for other users of this mod, grab the Perfect Harvest MOD VERSION.rar

*Cantaloupe Vine
*Dragon Fruit Plant
*Eggplant Plant
*Orange Tree
*Zucchini Plant

Goes without saying that you don't upload this to the exchange or paysites, thanks.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

It's an ordinary community lot that fits on all 20x30 lots (smallest lots in Maxis-made neighbourhoods), if that's what you mean?

And thanks

EDIT; Gah, now I understand.
No, I don't know of any way to merge new lots with existing lots in a neighbourhood / overwrite empty space on existing lots with other lots.

But that would have been awesome

Very useful. One of my sims worked hard to get a perfect garden, and now every other familiy I play comes to earn the fruits of her hard labour, haha, but she hadn't had time yet to get foreign fruits, so thank you so much, this is really great, also for some challenges!

I don't think you can. But you can make your sim go there and harvest all the plants, then plant the perfect harvestables in a similar lay out. That would give the same effect.

Any clue why a lot of the plants aren't showing up in my game?
I don't see any of the WA plants at all.
I remember reading somewhere that the No Mosaic mod can affect certain new insects appearing in the game, so could that be the case?

Other than that, awesome lot!
Test Subject
#21 Old 28th May 2010 at 1:56 AM
Ok, the mosaic thing was indeed why some bugs didn't show up, but ALL WA plants still are not showing, either in this lot, or in-game.
I can buy the produce from food vendors, but can do nothing with it.
Really frustrating, but I dunno what to do.

Still an awesome mod, BTW.

Far shot, but I have to ask; do you have the "more harvestables" mod by Black_Spirit? This caused my WA-plants to disappear, so If you have, Calipher updated this for WA.

I just figured that out shortly before going to bed last night, actually.
Count me in as stupid, lol!

Once I got the WA update for that mod, and re-placed the lot, everything works!

Great contribution! Thanks!

... any chance of letting us know how we can edit the garden? (I want to customise it for nectar making, I won't let my copy the plants to set more lifefruit for example)
Test Subject
#25 Old 7th Jun 2010 at 12:56 AM
I'm not sure how community lots work - will these plants eventually perish, or do they live forever without being cared for, so generations can harvest or will you need to replace the lot after a while?
