  • Lavender Flower Harvestable

This plant will leaf out in the Spring, flower in the Summer & Fall, then go dormant in the Winter.

Special Effects: Monarch Butterflies will show up sporadically while this plant is in bloom giving you a chance to catch one if you have Outdoor Retreat installed. This plant will also help your bees be in a better mood if planted near the Beebox, plant them in groups for a stronger effect.

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

You’ll need to install the file below for this harvestable to work. Several other harvestables require the same file, please note you’ll only need one copy in your mods folder for all of them. 

If you have a previous version of this file be sure to replace it with the most current version above. 

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.
