I also wanted to add a bit more with gardening and vanishing plants, but this is involving the Cowplant Berry.  My sim planted it, and as soon as they were finished the newly planted Cowplant Berry vanished.  But then my sim kept trying to plant the same item over and over again.  But there was nothing there for me to delete even with the move objects cheat turned on.

I had this exact same issue yesterday. I ended up buying seed packets until I got another berry and planted it elsewhere; that one worked.

 

Then the next morning my gardener showed up to tend to my plants and I noticed that she bent over and started planting something exactly where I put the Cowplant berry the night before, and when she was done the planted berry appeared. Strange.

There's a problem in the tuning files for both sage and basil. I've made a small mod to fix the error. Thought I'd post it here to help fixing the bug. The parts of the tuning files I corrected are marked with "MODDED" in order to be easily identified. I have not experienced the issue in my game since.

Please describe the patch or change you made. new patch, new EP

I had it before with one Avocado tree, which un-growed in a previous state while the others stayed as they were. (i also had the feeling that the first avocado tree stopped growing for some time, after i moved it in build mode it grow further)

now a grown up cowplant, fell back to a just planted state just before my eyes, while the interactions (feeding, hugging, talking) are still available. so no traveling lots involved there

btw:  the weird  dvelopement bug (all plants evlveing super fast without me doing anything) stopped and all plants dropped back to the first 'normal' stages of evolvement. idk if this is connected.

anyway, a lot of things are broken with the last patch and the EP.

@rottenmeier This will probably be moved into the larger gardening issues thread, but this is happening to a lot of us. Watering seems to be a culprit for many of us.

Since one of my ongoing goals is a garden with one of every harvestable (all 70) at Perfect level, I was able to gather/verify several data points relating to this issue. These notes are from 8 hours of devoted garden observation. All plants were Sheltered. No splicing. No plant-affecting mods used. Removed Bees to ensure they were not triggering any unexpected behaviors.


Due to this bug (and my impatience), I would use shift-click bring reverted plants back to 'Blossoming' stage as-needed. Bizarre Plant would show fruit immediately after this was done; other plants did not show harvestables until next morning at 5am.


Basil Bush & Sage Bush become harvestable on ground mesh with full gown interactions when harvested/sold; occurs every time.


Cowplant reverts to just planted mesh with full gown interactions every time Harvest All, sell All, or Super Sell is used nearby. Reset Object needed to restore without waiting.


Bizarre Plant reverts to just planted state each time lot is loaded (load game/travel), exiting CAS, and when Object Reset used.

The rest of the issues were more random:

Noticed several plants were reverting to just planted state as the fertilizer cooldown expired. To verify the cause: I paused to ensure Fertilize was not available, let time pass until each reverted, then after I reset growth to Blossoming verified that Fertilize was available. However, this did not happen every time the fertilize cooldown expired; only occurred once when it affected about a dozen plants.


Witnessed plants randomly revert to just planted state. Sometimes with no Sim interaction. Sometimes seemingly triggered by Harvest, Sell, or Fertilize activity. Reloaded a Save just before one of these events to see if the same plant would be affected the same time: it did not.


There was even one time where every plant reverted to just planted state at exactly the same time with no identifiable trigger. I reloaded the save and fast forwarded until it happened again Tues at 7am. I captured screenshots just before and after (attached). Could not reproduce it a third time, even reloading the same save.


Evolve system seems to work as expected for me. Did not notice any evolve stages lost and no plants reverted when Evolve used.
