--- Changes made to the recipes include addition of Vanilla Bean as an optional requirement , and other recipe adjustments ( like adding lemon to lemon bar etc)
--- Added ingredient requirement to Icecream machine and also tweaking of various recipes

The resources modified are as follows. Any mod which modifies the following resources will conflict












Mod Description:

Adds custom Vanilla Bean to the game

Details:

------ Vanilla Bean can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Vanilla' in the search bar for easy access]
------ Can be planted and harvested
------ Vanilla Bean is tagged as Fruit , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require Fruits as a cooking ingredient.[Custom Recipes to come later]




------ Vanilla Bean can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)

Let me know in the comments about any food in the game which may have Vanilla as an ingredient. I will add Vanilla ingredient requirement to that recipe!

Troubleshooting:
If the Plants do not become harvestable : -
1. Make sure , you are on the latest patch
2. Plant the fruit and not the plant
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


Requirement : Base game compatible


Made with Game Version PC Version 1.28.25.1020


Conflicts: Should not conflict with any other mod


Translations: -- Added POR_BR translations by Akin

I used Google to find recipes and see if some of these dishes usually have vanilla extract:

Recipes:
White Cake
Blue Confetti Cake (looks like vanilla cake with blue frosting to me)
Carrot Cake
Custard Pie
Spooky Cookies and Zombie cake?
Sugar Cookies
Bread Pudding
Banana Cream Pie (recipes online call for vanilla extract)

Vanilla Coffee (Just in case you can specify ingredients for custom drinks)

The ice cream machine probably has at least a few flavors that could use vanilla too.

Also, great mod!

I love all the plants that you have created. I really loved pbox's lettuce (harvestable) plant, it doesn't work anymore. It grows beautiful but I can't harvest it. It there any chance someone has fixed it - or would you possibly consider making a new lettuce that is harvestable?

I think sagerainwillow reported good ideas, and I'd like to help you with the recipe requirements, too, icemunmun!

So, right now I'm looking at a base game (w/digital deluxe) recipe list; here are the recipes that might call for vanilla. You can mull this over later...

Base Game Homestyle Cooking
---
Hamburger Cake
White Cake
Chocolate Chip Cookies (vanilla is an ingredient, but might do well to add your cocoa as an ingredient, too!)
Flirty Heart Cookies
Black and White Cookies (same idea as chocolate chip cookies)
Blue Confetti Cake
Classic Vanilla Cupcakes (from the cupcake factory)

Base Game Gourmet Cooking
---
Fruit and Yogurt Parfait (maybe the yogurt was vanilla-flavored?)
Black and White Cake/White and Black Cake (both with the same idea as Chocolate Chip Cookies)
Tiered Cake
Baked Alaska

Get to Work Expansion Baking
---
Sugar Cookies
Cereal Marshmallow Squares
Bread Pudding
Cream Tarts
Cream Filled Doughnuts
Profiteroles
Creme Brulee
Eclairs

As far as custom recipes, the creator I follow and use most is Leniad, so I have all of his recipes. If he would like to have vanilla as a requirement, you might could ask him about Chess Pie, Treacle Tart, and Custard Pie, as well as some of his new cheesecakes and banana recipes posted on http://sims4studio.com/thread/6924/...cupboard?page=4. On that page is a set of 8 milkshakes with a vanilla one that could definitely use your harvestable, icemunmun.

Those ideas are all I have now. If you need to look at cocoa more, I'd be happy to help there, too. I love your mods; great job!

Hi Icemunmun, I love your work, but unfortunately I do not work because I have until version 1.25.136.1020. It would be possible to convert this and the other Harvestables to this version please. I could only install Custom Garlic, Parsnip and Cucumber. As I install the translations. Thank you very much, sorry my English

Hi, thank u for all These wonderful Mods you do! Only one Thing: In my last gameplay, the Mod Detector said that I had to clear either the Vanilla Bean, or the Cacoa Bean. They did not run together. I will try one more time, and I have looootsa Mods - so, I canny tell why or what. But this was all, everything else works out brilliantly. :D

hii idk if its a issue with your end or mine, but I do know a lot of mods have been going down in the past couple days. the peach, raspberry, coconut, bell pepper, and vanilla bean pant are disappearing when I go to plant or the ones already panted and grown are dying and I cant water them, when I click on them I get a 'last exception' error notification. do you have any idea why?

All custom harvestables broke with the seasons patch. icemunmun is working on them as far as I know, just give her some time to fix them.
For game safety take all custom harvestables you might have out of your mods folder until they're updated.
