I'd almost given up hope that this would ever be anything but a WIP! I'm so glad I didn't! Now I'll actually have something to do with the insane amount of harvestables in my game, and something besides a "bakery" to open as a retail store! LOL! I'm gonna have to go start my game up ASAP!

I have found a few non-English strings missing (these went missing while merging the individual files) and I am fixing them. Will also upload the strings for translation!


The package file with the string tables attached to this comment.


Thank you, i began translating to Portuguese. Can you do the same for the beebox? The other day i was translating but the amount of scattered files become too confusing for me.

I voted for this too, thanks so much for making it and sharing with us. Ps. When I untick use fresh ingredients I still need the ingredients to make the ea stuff... the custom ones I can make without ingredients. Am I doing something wrong?!
