  • Mint Harvestable

This fast growing plant will stay green from Summer to Fall. 

This plant can repel bugs from nearby plants so it’s good to put near plants that are prone to bugs. Because it’s fragrant, it also has a chance to make Sims with the Gardening skill focused, and Sims with the Gourmet Cooking skill Inspired.

To find this harvestable in Seed Packets and add it to your Gardening Notebook – see ‘Optional’ tab.

The ‘Garden Plant Effects Tuning’ file is needed for any special attributes/effects to function. You can find more information about these effects on my Harvestable Handbook Page.

You only need one copy of this file for all my custom harvestables. Make sure you are using the most recent version of these files.

NOTE:  This harvestable can be used without the Tunings’ file listed above. If you choose not to use this file be warned that you may have LE errors due to missing references. I will not be creating/supporting a version that does not use this file.

The script mod below is required for this harvestable to show up in Seed Packets, the Scarecrow’s Pockets, and allows it to show up in your sim’s gardening notebook.

Please use the most updated version from THIS post in the comments section.

NOTE:  If you choose not to download this mod Your Sim will only have access to this harvestable from debug (with showhiddenobjects cheat) or from the grocery stall (if applicable). Also, when your Sim researches this plant it will not be stored in your notebook.

I’ve made it so the Notebook Entry info also shows up under the plant description so you can see it when you hover over a plant as well as when you view your notebook in your Sim’s phone. You can see an example below: 
 

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.

Please follow me on Patreon, Twitter, or Tumblr for updates to this content. You can also view all updates to my content HERE.

  • 19/10/15 – fixed notebook tuning, updated seed packet tunings
  • 19/10/11 – updated to work with spells & conservationist career
  • 19/05/26 – cleaned up and adjusted tuning, added notebook info
If you have a previous version of this harvestable it’s attributes and effects may not work properly after an update. There currently isn’t a fix so you may need to replant it.
 
Once you replant it, you can use cheats to bring the plant to the state the original plant was in. If you shift-click the newly planted dirt mound, you can choose to ‘Set Gardening State…’ and from there edit the ‘Growth Stage’ and ‘Plant Evolution’ to set it to the same level as the original plant. Choose ‘Blossoming’ if the plant was fruiting, and choose ‘Ready to Evolve’ to increase the quality, repeat to get to desired level.
