Title: Fluorescent to Sunlamp Converter & Seasons Bugfix


To enable standard and custom fluorescent fixtures to function as Seasons sunlamps. Also fixes a minor semi-global Seasons bug.


I have always found it unrealistic that the Seasons sunlamp costs over 14 times as much as the similar base game fixture. This modification generalizes the harvestable plant and PlantSim routines so that the standard fluorescent has the same "sunlight" function as the sunlamp. To take advantage of this feature in your own custom lighting objects code the Object Data (OBJD) "Original GUID" field with the value 0x6CC90706.

In addition, this code patches the GardenGlobals so that the light of a sunlamp will not have an effect on plants that are outside of the room that the lamp is in.

Terms of Use

You may include this modification in any uploaded lots, whether for free or pay - although it would be nice if you included a credit in the description and sent me a PM. Apart from using it in lots, I would prefer that you not upload this hack elsewhere.


SimPE and PJSE
Microsoft Photo Editor and GIMP 2, for processing the screen shots
Numenor's AnyGameStarter, for development and testing
Phaenoh's Miss Marigold and her lot were used for testing and the screen images
