  • Sweet Mint Herb Harvestable

An overall great plant for the garden. It grows fast and has insect repellent properties. Leaves stay green Summer-Fall.

Special Effects – This plant will repel insects from surrounding plants. There’s a small chance that your Sim will recieve a buff while in this plant’s vicinity if they have the Gardening or Gourmet Cooking skill.

  1. Seed Packet Additions & Custom Notebook Entry – see ‘Option 1’ tab
  2. Special Attributes & Effects – see ‘Option 2’ tab

I’ve included some additional code in this Harvestable so that it shows up in Seed Packets, the Scarecrow’s Pockets, and has it’s own custom Notebook entry. You’ll need the file below, which links to Scumbumbo’s Xml Injector, for that code to work.

If you’re not interested in these additions you can use the harvestable as-is. Just know that the only way your Sim will have access to this harvestable is by purchasing it from the catalog (with showhiddenobjects cheat) or from the grocery stall (if available).

If you add the tuning file below to your game this plant will have the Special Attributes & Effects listed above. These may include special effects on nearby plants, attracting creatures to your garden, or enable special interactions with the plant. You can find more details on my Harvestable Handbook Page.

This file is used by all plants that have special effects but you only need to have one installed in your game. Be sure to download the most recent version as I’ll be updating it with more attributes as I release new plants.

If you’ve downloaded this previously, please delete the old file and install this one instead. If you have this plant saved to a lot it may not work properly after you update it. Try shift-clicking the plant and resetting it or changing it’s growth back to Planted. If none of that works then you may have to replant it.
Some custom plants turn VERY dark indoors. I’ve already brought the issue up at Sims4Studio and as soon as a solution is found I’ll update my files. Until then, if you leave a wall open in the area you have your plants they will show properly.
