Wow. Just wow. Please create a Patreon.

bubbajoe62 6th Aug 2017 9:42 PM

Unfrickin' believable. This is just.... Wow. Gonna go finish my farm now. All favs from me and throwing a little shade at EA with all their excuses why we can't have cool things. Leaving with a 90 degree bow in your direction.

happycowlover 6th Aug 2017 9:55 PM

Been waiting for this! This is marvelous. Thank you for doing the work EA refuses to do. Modders have been saving the game since TS1.

Cinderellimouse 6th Aug 2017 9:57 PM

Thank you <3

MiniMimi 6th Aug 2017 9:58 PM

It's finally there!! YAY I've been waiting for it since I saw your WIP months ago Thank youuuuuu <3
I loved the canning station overhaul Butterbot did for sims 3 so much so I am glad to see it now for Sims 4! Being able to sell the preserves using GTW shelves or with the city stands is so awesome! Finally all those harvests will be really useful - either feeding or making moolah ^^ I oversee grannies being slaved haha. And so glad all those CC harvest will be usable with the station! Vampires having a recipe is so cool, also thank you for the grunge recolor, sims 4 highly need to be grungified.

skm36 6th Aug 2017 10:06 PM

This is so cool, sims can never have enough things to do! Thank you so much!

luna916 6th Aug 2017 10:09 PM

This is so amazing! Thanks so much!

ShigemiNotoge 6th Aug 2017 10:14 PM

It's here!!!1 I've waited for this so patiently since you announced it!

EDIT: Can we take a moment to appreciate "Cantastic fruits and where to find them" skill book? As well as the "This is my jam!" moodlet?

Leniad 6th Aug 2017 10:18 PM

Can't wait to try it

simshout 6th Aug 2017 10:22 PM

YuuNyuu 6th Aug 2017 10:24 PM

Thanks so much ! Is french translation available ? I can help with that ^^

Thank you everybody! I am overwhelmed by all the love for this

I have found a few non-English strings missing (these went missing while merging the individual files) and I am fixing them. Will also upload the strings for translation!


The package file with the string tables attached to this comment.

Fantastic job! Thanks for your hard work!

cdshrout1171 6th Aug 2017 11:01 PM

OMGGGGGODDDDD! Thank you! I hope it works good! The canning station is one of my very favorite things about TS3.

Question, which custom harvestables can be used with the station? I have some of Leniad's harvestables that aren't yet on MTS.
