Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Bushes shrink after harvesting

★★★★★ Guide

I can confirm that I'm seeing the same thing after today's game update (PC: 1.63.133.1020, no mods or cc), though what initially looked like the harvestable now looks like this (in my case it was a spliced plant).  Though it doesn't appear to affect all of my garden, as you can see in the picture.

 

Best regards, 
Jennifer

@simsoodle I had two Sage plants do this as well. Both were spliced with other herbs. My non-spliced Parsley plant did not disappear. I'll do more testing to look for any patterns.

Btw- This is in a no-mod/no-cc (never modded) test save

Just to update an earlier post, my Sage plants returned to their normal appearance at 5 am the next morning but they disappeared again when harvested. It seems like it might just a glitch in their appearance. I am still able to take cuttings when they are "disappeared", something you can't do with seedlings or dormant plants.

EDIT: In addition to being able to take a cutting from the affected plants (ie after they have "disappeared"), I am also able to graft onto them.

@benlow11 I had the same problem all of my season plants (my flowers) reverted back to the just planted stage only my sage and basil remained in the mature blossom stage. I exited the game before it saved went back in and my plans were there and I haven't had that problem since now my sage and basil are doing that miniature "looks like a harvestable" issue that everybody else is reporting.

@dbussell I did the same thing the first time it happened.  The second time I just shift clicked each one that was supposed to be growing and put them back in the state they were before.  A bunch of them reverted again though and my money tree that was in the planted state had bugs flying where the leaves were supposed to be and a bunch of the plants are still getting weeds. Oh and winter and summer plants started growing even though it is fall. I haven't seen any that look like miniature harvestables though and I can't harvest them. I will have to keep my eye out for them.

Where did my plants go?

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.133.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? ALL packs installed.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Water a plant.
What happens when the bug occurs? The plant disappears as if just planted our out of season. I couldn't even activate the bump in the ground at first, just see the plant type and quality. After a while, it showed that and gave me (greyed-out) interactions, but it was a garlic plant waiting to be harvested, and now there's no plant visible. My garden appears the same without watering (but those plants may be out of season). My daughter was able to replicate this on her PC.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see full-grown plants with harvestables ready to be harvested.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Today's patch (6/3/2020)

Looks like this patch is causing a lot of issues.

I also have this issue (though have seasons disabled). It is only one plant though (the basil). Does your plant look like this (see pic)?whatthebasil.png
