  1. Just a suggestion-I know while your mods are one of my favorites, I have a difficult time keeping track of the updates you make, especially to the crops. The update list link isn’t current, so I’m wondering if you could maybe leave a public Patreon post on what mods that need to be updated and redownloaded when you do? Thank you!

    • I feel so dumb! I scrolled down the update doc and saw the updates. Cearly, I needed more coffee. Feel free to delete this!

  2. Thank you for sharing this mod. It says public access available June 8, 2022 but I don’t see the link except the Patreon paywall. Is this one available yet? I’m looking forward to trying this out. Thanks again.

  3. I love all of your mods! I just tried this one out and am amazed at the depth and detail . I did discover that I’m not able to set the soap for sale using the live in store mod by LMS. I’ve always been able to sell your crafts ,this is the only thing I can’t . Maybe a tagging issue ?

    • LMS live in store acts in a different way whereby she has to manually add everything to her mod for selling and there is no automatic way for me to add stuff as far as I know.
      This can be sold like regular retail stores (gtw)

      • Oh I see. I don’t use Ravasheens saleabration because it automatically restocks items I prefer to craft. I will make a retail store instead. Thank you for the quick reply.

  4. My sim can’t make soap. I have bought supplies and everything… is there something I’m missing? Definitely ready to use this mod

  5. Love this mod. It works perfectly for me! The only thing is that the club activities of “make hot process soap” doesn’t work. I made a club of all level 10 soapmaking moms and had them in a house with all the soapmaking tables. and no one autonomously made any soap at all 😦

    • It is directed activity instead of autonomous for clubs..I dont want to add autonomous interactions at the moment as it will interrupt normal activities. I need to find a way first to tone down the interaction

      • Oh ok i completely understand. It’s a bit of a bummer to hear as I was hoping to make a soap factory and have all these “workers” make my sim soaps to sell as well in my storyline rn. But i understand you needing to figure out the quirks x)

        Like

      • The sims were droping actions to go make soap…so I removed it for the time being as autonomous actions like this tend to annoy people 😅 But i will add it back after tweaking ( the game itself handles autonomy badly)
