“Feed Your Pets”: Water Your Plants

Jump to Patch Notes

This functions very similarly to most of my Feed Your Pets mods so I’ve grouped it with them even though it’s for plants and not pets. Basically it’s what it sounds like. You can water your indoor plants. Children and up can water a plant and get a happy buff. Then it goes on cooldown for that sim for 20 hours (don’t want to overwater your plants)

This overrides the plant tuning so it will conflict with anything else that does the same.

I obviously didn’t screenshot every plant in the game, but you get the idea.

Details

Requires the XML Injector The great thing about using the XML Injector is that I didn't have to override the plant tuning to make this work so there's less opportunity for conflicts! While this might technically work with Seb's Friendlier Flora, I don't really recommend it since they do such similar things. That is a much more in-depth version that you should use instead if you want to form relationships with your plants. Mine is much simpler.
The new strings are in:
  • English
  • French
  • Polish
  • Russian
  • Spanish
I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate this myself so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.
  • Vanessa Sims - French translation
  • Aarathiel - Polish translation
  • SER_KISYAN - Russian translation
  • Morzat - Spanish translation
  • The animation isn't going to be perfect with all objects, especially when they're on surfaces (see the picture as an example)
  • The addon should take care of putting the tuning on the right objects, but it's always possible I missed something. Just let me know here or on Discord if you find an object that should be waterable but isn't or vice versa.
  • An addon for a few objects that should be multi-purpose and include plant watering. It's pretty much done but I want to clean it up a bit.
  • I'd love to get an Eco Lifestyle addon to water the more vertical plants with a spray bottle, but I can't get the animation to cooperate. I'll keep working at it but no promises.

Addons

This changes the tuning on a few objects to either make them plants or make them non-plants if they seem like things that shouldn't get watered (like flowers in vases). You don't need it to use the main mod, but you may notice a few objects that don't behave as you'd expect without this.

Patch Notes

  • Added Spanish translations from Morzat. I can't believe I forgot to post this sooner! I've had it saved forever and it just never made it to the post!
  • Updated to use the XML Injector instead of overriding object tuning. This will reduce the potential for conflicts. but means that that mod is now required.
