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 If you have problems related to plants and harvestables in your game, first thing to do is check for any outdated mods you've installed in your game.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.

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?

penguinsane; 'wild plants' don't need any care and will keep producing forever.

Lokilow; sadly, it seems plants can't be cloned with testingcheats, so the easiest way I can think of would be to take a sim with at least 7 gardening skill, stack up on the fruits you want and plant the desired amount on its home lot.
To avoid having to care for these new plants, move your sim to another house.
Your new garden will be ready for looting within a few days :D

I love love love this idea, but for some reason it's not working for me. When I first placed the garden in my neighborhood, I was not able to harvest anything - the only option available was "view". So I figured I would give it a sim day or two to fully grow. The next "day" I walked to the lot and all the plants were GONE with the exception of the decorative bushes! What could be the problem? Could one of my klepto neighbors have stolen all the plants?!?! (haha, j/k about that )

Loretta_Young_Silks: I got around to test it in a vanilla basegame, no problems detected. (WA-plants simply don't appear, so it will look a little empty in comparison to the preview shots here.)

beansly87: Have you checked thoroughly for possibly utdated or conflicting mods somewhere in your game? I've had my fair share of omgwtfbbq due to those

It is good idea, thank you. But it is pity that in your lot is no Money Tree and Omni Plant with perfect harvestable.

Since money bags are not ingredients and the Omni Plant does not increase the quality of ingredients already obtained, I didn't see the need to include them in this lot. (And I was running out of space.)

This is awesome! I tried installing the buy all fruit and buy all fish hacks and they wrecked my game. All my fruits and fish just vanished from my sims lots and inventories, it was a nightmare! Now I can get it all back! THANK YOU!

It's in sims3pack format, you either double click and it will install through the launcher automagically, or plop it into the downloads folder -> select it in the launcher -> install.

Thanks a lot, that's just brilliant. I've had a perfect garden like this only once but it never occured to me that I can export it and share, or at least save it for later, now I deleted the savegame and it's gone forever so I'll use yours

I'm having a problem placing the lot!

When I go into World Editor to place a new lot in which to put the garden lot, it won't let me place the garden. All the empty lot 'bubbles' disappear and I can't place it anywhere at all, no matter the size lot I use.

I'm not sure if this is a 'user error' issue or if it's actually a glitch. I know the garden uses plants from WA, which I don't have. I presumed those plants would just be replaced with basics, but was I mistaken?

Any help would be very appreciated
