Title: Harvestable produce restocking fix
Post by: nobody7382 on June 06, 2009, 10:16:53 pm
1wtf  Harvestable produce restocking fix

* Requires     : Open For Business, Seasons
* Compatibility: The Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open For Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Store Edition, FreeTime, Apartment Life, Mansion & Garden Stuff, all Stuff Packs
* Modifications: Semi-Global (affects all harvestable produce)
* Hack Version#: 1.0

Quick Info
Produce comes in 3 different qualities: Bland, Tasty, Mouthwatering.  Each quality type has a unique monetary value.  So Mouthwatering Produce will sell for a higher price than Bland Produce.  Fish come in all sorts of different species and sizes, each being worth a different amount of money.

There is a problem in the game code though.  When you restock a produce item, it may be replaced with one of a different quality.  So if you had a Bland Cucumber on sale for $11 and it got restocked with a Mouthwatering Cucumber, the sale price would still be $11 for that new Mouthwatering variety.  The game should be setting the price to the value of that new Mouthwatering Cucumber, which is $34.  Had you placed a brand new Mouthwatering Cucumber up for sale, the price would have been set for $34.  So it is only restocking that is buggy.

Fish already restock correctly.  But this hack will correct the problem for produce, by only allowing a piece of produce to be restocked with another one of the exact same type at the exact same quality.  This way, you won't be "giving away" your valuable Mouthwatering produce at super-low Bland prices.

Open For Business is necessary or else you can't have stores and can't restock.  Seasons is necessary because it is the only expansion pack that gives you Produce (fruits, veggies, fish) which can be sold on OFB owned lots.  This hack only affects Seasons Produce.  If you don't have those 2 Expansion Packs, the hack will not crash your game (it just won't do anything useful for you).

Will someone please confirm if this fix works for them, if they use it, and if the fix is actually necessary? No offense :D, just most mods on this forum have a reply or two.

Only if you plan to run a business selling produce. There is actually a bug in the game code that deals with only produce and the quality of them that screwed up how they're priced for sale. If you think that is the problem and that you run a business selling produce, then you can use this mod.

The mod should work or it wouldn't be hosted.

So true.  If something is broken, everybody and their mother are willing to tell you about it, but if it works right, there's very little response.  With no comments for this mod, I'd say it works just fine.
