The following is included in the download file:
MOD - BG - Forage
New Plant Files
Various Override Plant Files
This mod adds a foraging interaction to some of the plants in-game. When you forage you will find different fruits, veggies, herbs, and bugs depending on the type of plant you forage from. You will also have an option on trees and bushes to forage for wood, which can be used as ingredients for some of my other mods. Here is a quick list of the different plant types of plants you can forage from:
There are 2 types of plant files included, and a link to some rocks that needed to use this mod. You can use them separately or all together.
Foraging Plants – New Files – adds some plants to the game that cost 0 simoleons that you can forage from. Their names start with ‘Forage-able…’ These are good for people wanting play survival or history challenges and includes base game objects only.
Foraging Plants – Overrides Files – this overrides a bunch of plants in-game so that you can forage from them; you’ll find options for other expansion/game packs as well as base game. I’ll be adding more in the future.
Rock Files – you’ll need to download my objects HERE for foraging rocks. I’ll be adding more in the future.
Sims can only forage during the day.
There is now an option to ‘Forage for Wood’; this will give you wood logs or wood twigs that you can use with some of my other mods
In general, sims will find berries, roots, mushrooms, herbs, and insects. My custom harvestables are included.
Sims will have a chance to get multiple items from several groups of item types (like berries, insects, and mushrooms)
Each type of plant will have a unique group of items to forage for, an example of this is if a sim forages in grass they will have a chance to find roots, stink bugs, locusts, and certain herbs.
Sims can fail at foraging and will find scraps or parts instead.
Sims that have the Collectors, Love the Outdoors, Survivalists, and One with Nature traits have a higher chance of succeeding at foraging.
Sims who have the Survivalist, One with Nature traits and have the witch perk Incredible Forager will get twice as many items when they succeed at foraging.
Sims may not find anything while foraging. In this case they will get some scraps or an upgrade part.
Sometimes sims will be unfortunate and be hurt/scared by something while foraging.
Another less common result (which may require EP01) is that your sim may suffer from an affliction and get sick
Some negative buffs will prevent your sim from foraging
If your sim gets the ‘Feeling Lucky’ buff, they will have a better chance at being successful while foraging
