[OPEN] [CoL] Can only make Pumpkin Conserve from orange pumpkins

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? 1.77.146.1230
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All (BTDK currently disabled via command line options)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Grow a green or white pumpkin, harvest it, then try to make Pumpkin Conserve
What happens when the bug occurs? Option for Pumpkin Conserve is unavailable
What do you expect to see? I should be able to make conserve out of my pumpkins, no matter what color they are
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

75% of my pumpkins have turned out white, with the occasional orange or green. Still haven't figured out a way to influence the color, if that's even possible. The only time I'm able to make Pumpkin Conserve, though, is when they come out orange.

 

  • No mods/CC installed through the lifetime of this save file
  • I've had the issue with multiple households on multiple lots, though admittedly I haven't tried a fresh save yet since they take a while to grow
  • I'm able to cook with the white and green pumpkins, and I can make them into animal treats. I just can't make Pumpkin Conserve from the Canning menu.

The pumpkin in question when I captured these screenshots happened to be green, but it absolutely happens with the white ones too. Seems a waste to cook a single pie or make a single treat out of my oversized pumpkin, when a batch of conserve would last me so much longer, especially considering just buying a small one from the grocery shop is more cost-effective without the canning option.

 

EDIT: Merged thread with another with 11 me toos

@bem052698 Could you please make two separate thread for this. One for the canning and one for the color.

I can confirm the color happens on PC as well. Mine is also all white, haven't tested canning.


Best to edit this post to make it about one of the issues only and then create a new thread for the other

Thank you

 

Guess there's several colors but you can only make pumpkin conserve from orange

I just ran into this very problem. Made a perfect oversized green pumpkin, but can't can it.

Merged two threads that seem to be the same issue.

Bumping this up since this is still a problem. Just grew a perfect green oversized pumpkin and I can't can it.
