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.
Update - 9, Nov, 2017 : Pets Patch

--- Updated to Pets Patch (PC - / Mac

Mod Description:

Adds custom Cocoa Bean to the game


------Cocoa Bean can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Cocoa' in the search bar for easy access]
------ Can be planted and harvested

------ Cocoa Bean is tagged as Fruit (Func_Fruit) , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require fruits as a cooking ingredient.
------ Cocoa Bean can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)

If the Plants do not become harvestable : -
1. Make sure , you are on the latest patch
2. Plant the veggie 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)
Use No Tiny Harvestables by LITTLEMSSAM if you want the harvestables to be the same size always


Optional Recipe override Files

1. Adds Cocoa Bean as an optional required ingredient for Base Game Recipes - Chocolate cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies

2. Adds Cocoa Bean as an optional required ingredient for Get To Work (EP01) Recipes - Chocolate Doughnut, Chocolate Souffle, Chocolate Biscotti, Pre-mixed Brownie, Eclairs

All the recipe overrides are in individual files so you can pick and choose

Any mod that modifies the same resources listed above will conflict!

Requirement : Base game compatible (Optional icemunmun_GTW_Recipe_override file will require EP01 - Get To Work EP)

Made with Game Version PC Version

Conflicts: 1) Harvestable Cocoa Bean should not conflict with any other mod
