[NEEDS SAVES] [ECO] Can't Evolve Plants In Vertical Garden

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a plant ready to evolve in the vertical garden.

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

Had a plant reach the first point of evolution, but when I tried to have my sim evolve it, nothing happened. The action would pop up in their que and disappear, but no evolution happens. Thought maybe the evolve system was broken, so decided to move the plant into a regular garden pot and test there. No problems, plant evolved.

Same problem. Plants on the vertical garden cannot be evolved. Must move them to a planter and evolve them there. Makes the vertical garden basically useless.

Are either of you also having an issue where plants in the Vertical Planter don't count toward any of the Botanist aspiration tasks? My botanist Sim received no credit for planting or watering using the vertical planters.

Also having the problem with regular tress in wooden boxes, pots, and just out in the open.

@RenegadeKittyOG The vertical planters are badly broken. Routing doesn't work for them, ladders makes it worse. If you have several box planters and vertical, click on the box and say "harvest all", none of the vertical planters will be harvested. Those must be done separately.

I'd recommend not even using them. They need a complete overhaul.

Same. I'm also having problems weeding them.

@Psychotps Yes, it definitely seems that way. I'm not seeing the benefit to the vertical planters right now.

@RenegadeKittyOG Well, the only benefit I can see is they only take up one floor spot and you can have two on the same spot.

But the fact that you can't properly route to them or use the "all" functions, or evolve, makes them worse than useless.

It is working more or less fine for me, but I did notice that the interaction to evolve tends to drop from the queue. I had to order my sim to do it several times before he went and did it. And then he only evolved the plant on the upper level. Routing and caring for the plants themselves works for me.

I noticed that this tends to happen more frequently when the plant being evolved is also ready to be harvested.

 

Harvesting the plant and then attempting to evolve it has given me better results.
