Public Release Available on 5.03.2021


  1. Hey icemunmun, ive been having problems. When I open the menu for the canning station and go to click on jams or whatever it is I want to make the options never pop up. Is there a way that I can fix this?


  2. Hey, how can I level up? I've been making apple for the longest but can't make anything else.I've read the books, but nothing had change as far as leveling up to make pickles or sauces.


  3. Love your canning mod, but I can't get it to work. When I click on the station to make anything, it does nothing. Any suggestions? I've got the newest version.


  4. hi there ive tryed using this mod on the sims 4 but everytime i click the canning station my sim doesnt do the job the job doesnt even pop up its all up to date aswell


  5. I know Cottage Living isn't out yet, but during the gameplay footage; I noticed that they're introducing their own version of canning. I'm curious on if you plan on keeping this it's own separate thing, or will you combine your jams and sauces with the one in Cottage Living? Im sure someone else would ask this, but I wanted to know ahead of time.


  6. Hi Icemunmun, I've recently downloaded your wonderful mod. I got all the required files such as the harvestables, recipes, etc. For some odd reason when I go to make Raspberry Jam it shows 0/6. I checked my personal inventory and fridge, I have 26 raspberries.. is this an issue on my end or?


  7. Hi icemunmun, love all of your mods I’ve tried but I just updated sims today, along with updating mods which includes your canning station 3, when I go into sims to make sure things are working, I get a better exceptions error and mccc error that it detects something with the package file “otg”. I’m not sure what I should do as the site says to have all files in zip in mods folder, it says it’s a tuning issue with that package file and only that one so far.


  8. for some reason the soya sauce doesn't appear as an option in the sauce section. it's not on the stove, sims stove or your custom made station. but i checked build and buy and the soy sauce is there


  9. Hello, I have a question about the preservatives. Are they not able to be eaten with other foods in the game? For example, can we not use the mustard sauce with a hot dog food or tomato ketchup with hamburger? If so, how do we do this? I know this option is avaliable with the deep Fryer mod foods.


  10. Hi 🙂 thanks for making this mod. I haven't tried it, but I will after getting outdoor retreat. The thing is, does it clash with the one in cottage? I DO think that this mod is far more fun (and simpler since yours doesn't need sugar) than the one in cottage even at first glance. I know that the jars is prettier, but yours is more functional in general…


  11. I love these mods, but please, I'm so sick of my sims drinking the bbq sauce, soy sauce, etc! Is there a way to stop them doing this autonomously?? I want them to use it in cooking, not as a snack 😦


  12. Hello! I am having issues with canning station. It won't let my sim do anything with it and I've read the books already. When I click on it, there's the pie menu then when I click on making something, the mc command center mod tells me that it has detected something wrong with my mod, it's either broken or not updated but I have the latest version. Hope someone can help me with this!


  13. Is Icemunmun here? The canning mod keeps crashing recently and it drives me nuts. I even used only the canning mod for that save and it still crashes. Weirdly, I can't recreate the crash in other saves. Maybe this is something you can fix…

  16. Is the canning station supposed to only produce one jar? If so, can you please make it produce at least 4? It makes no sense that I use 6 harvestables to make one jar worth $180. But if I make nectar, using only 3 harvestables, I can then sell for over $1000.
