Re: Unidentified plants do not spawn in GF

★★ Novice

 I guess I should also mention that I have gone during all of the seasons. Also, I had seasons previously and had no issue what so ever.

Thanks for the clarification! I have had (minor) issues with some of the wild plants in GF if my Sim already had a higher herbalism skill, and had grown the plants on their home lot. However that was quite a while ago, and I have not tried since the recent packs to see if it still happens... I hope you are able to find a solution! Cheers.

HI @KelsoGamer36 

 

merged your post with a similar post.

 

Both seem similar as they don't seem to grow properly.

If you don't have Seasons your Sim needs to stay in each area of GF long enough for the plants to sprout, mature and bear fruit. That can take a while since there are three areas: Campground, National Park and Hermit's House.

 

If you have seasons your Sim needs to do that plus visit in the appropriate season. If your playing average Lifespan and shorter seasons that's a challenge.

 

I don't remember were I got this but it's helpful. It seems to me that the Fall and Spring plants are not available in Summer, but I'm not positive. Will have to check next time I'm in GF. This might be from pre-release info about Seasons.

Hope this helps.

 

I do think that GF and the Science Lab from GTW were a little messed up by the gardening overhaul plus Seasons.

 

P.S. I believe there's a "cheat" for changing the growth state of plants. But where's the fun in that.

Added this for now although I think it's just as others have said. You need to stay long enough and seasons makes that harder

 

 

Actually found another thread on the issue. Merged.

I started playing Outdoor Retreat pack for the first time today. My sim have outdoor enthusiast aspiration and I can't move to another level because I can't find any harvestable unidentified plants anywhere. I saw one once but I could only look at it and soon it was all gone. In some lots there are mud spots that says "Wild Plant" but they never grow. I read that you have to be at the same lot as the plants at 5am because they spawn then but that didn't work either.

@crinrict  No. There are another plants like strawberries and carrots growing that can be harvested. But if plant says "wild plant" (I'm not sure if that's the word in English version, I just translated it straight from Finnish) the plant can't be harvested. And sometimes even disappears.

OK

 

Merging your post with the 5 am thread then although you say that doesn't work for you either.

 

See if @DizzyDee-K table above helps you.

Thank you @DizzyDee-K for this chart! I think it helps explain why my Sims that just got back from Granite Falls after a two day stay didn't have any luck harvesting the wild plants specific to the world.


This was my first time playing there since Seasons released, so it's very different and quite confusing now. My Sims were there for two days at the beginning of Spring and the only plants that were in bloom were strawberries and carrots. I think I'll have them try again in Summer and stay longer and see if I have better luck then.
