Hey folks,

As part of an overall effort to consolidate my mess of communication channels and platforms for connecting with my mods and reporting things to me about them, I'm going to be hosting future updates on my website, here:


I have no intention of deleting what is already here on MTS, but I want to redirect you to where you can find the latest information on my mods and download the latest versions of them.

The reason for this is one of time and headspace. As you might imagine, it's difficult to keep track of, and update, everything, when it's spread across Twitter, Youtube, MTS, the official Sims forums, etc. I want to be able to get updates to you more quickly and communicate with you more efficiently to reduce the probability of the experience of feeling ignored, or of an important mod feature going months without a fix.

In the past, I could get away with messy because I was more or less modding full-time, but I can't invest that kind of time anymore. Thanks for your understanding.

Please visit the website and bookmark it if you want to keep track of things.

And thanks for your interest in, and support for, what I do. It is in large part because of your continued interest that I feel it is important to reorganize, so that I can better manage my mods in the future.

November 7, 2017, Maxis Patch: Fixed!

This mod should now be working as before, with the November 7, 2017, Maxis patch.

New version is V2.

German Translation 8/30/17

Thanks to simsfreak 388 for a German translation of the mod. It's in download V1-3. If you don't need German translation, then you don't need to switch to this version of the mod (as per usual with a translation-only update).

Russian Translation 6/18/17

Thanks to SosoMikaelyan for a Russian translation of the mod. It's in download V1-2.

Italian Translation and Icon Change 6/8/17

Thanks to Niker293 for Italian translation and for an updated/changed icon for the interactions, to make it more in the style of a "game pack interaction" (in Niker293's words).

Polish Translation Update 4/29/17

Polish translation is now included. The version that includes this is the one with 4-29-17 in the name. Credit for this update goes to Piesek64; they sent me the translation. I just added it to the mod.

Upon reading this thread on the sims forums, I was inspired to do something with plant sims. Give them a couple of the suggested abilities, for instance. And that I did.

I haven't had time to test this extensively, as I wanted to get it out as soon as possible for people while Plant Sims are on the brain, but it should all be working. Let me know, of course, if you run into issues.

What this mod adds

If you are a Plant Sim, you can:

Absorb Water (from puddles): Click on a puddle and click Absorb Water. Your Plant Sim should walk over, kneel down, and gain some Water until the puddle is gone. So now you can clean and fill your Plant Sim's Water Need at the same time!

Poison Kiss: Found under the Mischief category. Can only be used on/by Teen and older. Does a Blow Kiss animation and then the receiver falls asleep, tranquilized for a bit.


Discuss Plants with other Plant Sims. Found under Friendly.
Discuss Eco-Friendly Alternatives with other Plant Sims. Found under Friendly.

Finally, plant or non-plant sims can Compliment Leaves of sims who are Plant Sims (found under Friendly).


No overrides are used, so shouldn't be any issues here. Scripts are used to inject new interactions.

Pointers for Installing Scripts

Upon downloading the mod and unzipping it, you'll see a file of the PACKAGE file type and a file of the TS4SCRIPT file type. Both go in your Mods folder, as is, without being further unzipped/extracted in any way. If you have a lot of mods and want to be organized, you can place them within an unzipped folder inside your Mods folder and they should be recognized and function as normal. (Example: You could create a folder called PlantSimInteractions within your Mods folder and place the PACKAGE and TS4SCRIPT files from this mod inside of it.)

TS4SCRIPT file type is essentially a zip file containing python scripts that has been renamed, so that it's more clear what its purpose is. You should never unzip a TS4SCRIPT file, unless you're a modder and you want to see how the scripts work as a reference point for your own work. Unzipping it won't open up a black hole in the universe or create a tear in the space-time-continuum; it'll just confuse you if you aren't a modder and/or know what you're doing with scripts.
