This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
These are default replacements for the harvested Orchard fruits. They do not affect the orchard trees themselves. I have tweaked the meshes, textures and placement, but the main change is an added "Eat Fruit" interaction for each one, similar to my custom peaches and pears. The interaction is available for Child upwards, advertises to the hunger motive and is autonomous.
As well as filling the hunger bar (a little - it is a snack) eating fruit is enjoyable for some Sims, depending on personality. Neat Sims like apples - they are crispy and you don't get covered in sticky juice. Active Sims like oranges - for the vitamin C. Grouchy Sims, of course, like sucking on a lemon.
I have also added a "DEBUG - Change material" interaction to the oranges and lemons (apples already had it) so, if you play in debug mode you can change the quality of the fruit after placing it.
Talking of placement, I thought my original fruit plate might be too fancy for a lot of Sims, so I have made a plain, wooden version as well. It is available under Decorative/Sculptures for $80. The fruits of course, aren't in the catalogue at all, they have to be harvested from the trees.
If you already have harvested fruit in your game when you add the defaults, it won't have the placement options or interactions available to it. You will have to wait until you harvest a new crop before your Sims can eat it.
The fruit requires Seasons, and the plate is base game compatible. They have been tested in my game, which has all EPs and SPs. I can confirm that you can still make juice from them, and that they can be packed and unpacked using the SimWardrobe Produce Packing Station, if you have that.
Edited to add: If you use BoilingOil's More Realistic Yields mod, my fruit will need to load after it.
