Update - 23, Jan 2018 : Non- English strings fix

--- I sort of messed up some of the non-English strings again! So they are fixed now
--- Fixed the Club interaction

Update - 20, Jan 2018 : New Preserves

1. Excluded the traits - Evil and materialistic from the Embarrased 'Sold to Corporation ' Buff
2. Fixed the 'Sold to Evil corporation ' Interaction and Parsnip Pickles
3. Recipe changes

- Added Onion requirement to Chili pickles
- Added Herb requirement to Green Chili Spread

4. Added 15 new preserves and 8 new buffs

1. Honey spread
2. Chamomile Spread
3. Salmon Spread
4. Heart Jam
5. Mango Jam
6. Mango Pickles
7. Mango Chutney
8. Guava Jam
9. Guava Pickles
10. Plum Jam
11. Sweet Chili Plum Pickles
12. Pumpkin Jam
13. Pumpkin Butter

*See SkillLevel-Ingredient and Buff Tables below for details

5. Added Ingredient Optional Packages for the preserves - Ingredient requirement for preserve making is optional

Choose Ingredient Optional version if you want the sims to be able to make the preserves without the specific ingredient in their inventory. ( If you want the preserves to always require inventory simply choose icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_Custom ).Do not put both icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA_IngredientOptional in your game. Choose only one. Same for the custom ingredient preserve.

Hi folks! I love this. One issue I discovered, when you place the canning station next to the stove. My sims was making a roast chicken and when she placed the items in the oven of the "stove" the canning station rotated forward as if it were the oven door. it proceeded to behave in that manor for all seasoning adjustments etc. roast never appeared during the cooking phase but was removed properly from the oven. Hope this helped.

Hi! I play the Sims 4 in spanish (because i'm argentinian), and I don't like to have my CC items in another language because it feels to me fake, like that item is obviusly not original from the game. I propose you to make the same item but for spanish speakers players, if you like the idea please md me and i can translate the texts so you can create it!

Hey, Antou.

Look at this post http://modthesims.info/download.php...067#post5253067
icemunmun has attached the strings there, you can download and translate them. Then attach your zipped translated stbls to a post and icemunmun will add it in one of her next updates.

I'm having some path finding type issues. Every time I ask my sim to make jam I get the "arm waving can't get there" animation. I've tried moving the things around the station, moving the whole station, resetting both the station and Sims as well as buying a new station. Still no luck.

Edit: Issue solved I was using "Don't Prep Food Where You Angry Poop" Which caused the problem. I checked back in on that mod and its been updated and the problem is fixed.

I am currently adding some of the cooking interactions back into the canning station so that sims can continue cooking whatever food they decide to carry over from the real stove without flipping the stove over. The choice to do different stages of cooking in different stoves around the house is an EA thing and it is completely random. Thanks to scumbumbo, I know that this can be partly solved by making a new crafting object type ( but doing that will take time and I am a little short of time right now). Will do that later.

Sorry! I have trouble keeping up with my own harvestables ( I am 6 uploaded harvestables behind and have at least 30-50 more harvestables planned)! I don't think i will have be able to make preserves with other people's stuff. Though I think I may use Necrodog's harvestables in future as they are unique especially the date and fig

First of all: thank you for this mod and also your harvestables! You have enriched the life of my stay-at-home dad, hahaha.

I was wondering though if there is a way to keep the cleaning service from moving all the jars from the display rack to the fridge. I'm going to try to keep my display in a room that I lock for anyone but the family, but I'd love to be able to just have it in my kitchen. Thanks in advance!
