Mod Description:

Adds custom Cocoa Bean to the game




Details:

------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)



Troubleshooting:
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)
OR
Use No Tiny Harvestables by LITTLEMSSAM if you want the harvestables to be the same size always

forgive me, but a) id like to say you're amazing at this and thank you, but also, b) what is the means by which you have a 'grow plant - growth+50' and 'spawn fruit (debug)' ? I don't play as often as I used to, so could you tell me if this is a mod or something in-game that I haven't discovered? I don't seem to have access to it through testingcheats. Thank you again ahead of time!

PS- I don't know if I'm simply looking for the wrong thing, but I've been searching the net for almost a half hour now, including this site, if it is a linkable piece of info, would you be willing to do so? thanks again

Fantastic job on this one. I was also hoping for a version that will give a Sim an energy boost, but I am not sure if it is the same bean or not.

I would appreciate that very much! Thank you! <3 No matter what kind of sim I make, I ALWAYS end up with a serious gardener, and usually a Bakery to go along!

cocoa beans do give you an energy boost.

they are actually really healthy for you.

search up cocoa nibs. they are cracked cocoa beans which you can bite on.

cocoa beans are pure energy in the form of a bean. they provide good fats for you like an avocado does.

Love your harvestables One question, by making the bean a required ingredient in some of the recipes, does this conflict with greycurses mod? that one also revamps recipes to require specific ingredients. I believe any cakes or sweets require milk and flour at least in order to bake. I'll doublecheck the resources but thought I'd ask anyway

Thats the trouble with overrides...they always conflict! If I have time in future I may ask Graycurse permission to add the flour + eggs + Cocoa as ingredients .(No sure I will do this ultimately or not!)

hello, could you make it available harvest for indoor? cause lemon, pear, pomegrante, blueberry, cucumber, cherry, I can plant indoor in my indoor apartment using bb.moveobjects. But I can't plant orange, parsnip, cocoa, and plantain banana indoor. I hope you make cocoa available for indoor apartment too. Thanks. I loved all of your creations anyway ^^
