Omni Plant "Gifts" in Sims' Inventory
« on: November 10, 2012, 03:40:23 PM »
Several of my Sims have these in their inventory, but they are not interactive.  I have no idea where they came from or what to do with them.  Thoughts?

I'd love to get an omni plant as a gift! just the seed would go nicely.  You get the seeds as a reward for completeing a gardening challenge which does not seem to be coming up for my current sim.

You can feed the omni plant with a wide variety of items from your inventory.  It will then reproduce that item several times.  So, if you feed it perfect deathfish, it will produce several more perfect deathfish.  Or, use it to make money by feeding it a very expensive book.
Or, with one plant you can rotate the feed items to maintain your stock of fish and harvestables without having to grow a lot of individual plants.
“In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. That the weak overcomes the strong, that the hard gives way to the gentle -- this everyone knows. Yet no one asks accordingly.”

I don't have the option to plant it, though.  It is just a gift box that doesn't respond to clicking and says "omni plant" on it.

This is a glitch. TWALLEN has a mod called Debugenabler that will let you delete the package from your inventory. I've been lucky so far and not had any this time around.

I just got one of those gift boxes too.  My couple went to China and when they came back, my girl sim had one in her inventory.  No interactions, so not exactly sure where it came from. :)

I've been getting them in the mailbox as gifts from friends. I get gifts everyday in the mail and they go into my family inventory except when the omni plant gift shows up and it goes in my regular inventory. I've been having to use Master Controller to get rid of them.

Omni Plant delivered as package
« Reply #6 on: November 15, 2012, 09:36:28 AM »
For the non-believers I have pictures: :P




For the others: I really hope you guys know a solution for this. After my sims has ordered Omni Plants they came, as you can see, in a package. A package he couldn't open and seems to be stuck forever now in his inventory. To make it worse, there are two packages and they both do not responce.

Omni plants being received as gifts and getting stuck in Sim's inventory is actually a known bug from patch 1.42. 

There is already a topic about it so I'm going to be merging the two.

How does that mod exactly works? Not the installing, but the working with it.

Talking about the mod would be a little off topic.  Perhaps you could start a thread on the mods board asking about it.


Also - Twallan does very thorough walkthroughs on all of his mods on his website Nraas Industries.

I am not offtopic.
The subject is about the omni plant packages and how to get rid of them.
The original topic might be not, but after you've merged my topic with it, it now is.

There is a way to get rid of them using mastercontroller mod from nrass.  Like Ricalynn said, you can read about it on the site.

When you have the mod installed, you can just transfer the omni plant packages from the sims inventory back into the mailbox.  It works great, plus I have been getting pieces of mail in the sims inventory too.  I was never a big mod person, but if they keep piling up in the inventory, it is eventually going to glitch out.

Thanks! I did it slightly differently though. I stead of transferring to the mailbox I just choose what to sell from my inventory. Every omni plant was exactly $0,- worth.

I'm also getting this glitch with Bills now (but I have the No Bills Ever LTR).

I'm hoping it'll delete itself when the sim in question dies.

It won't.  I've got it with bills too.  Prepare to inherit them.

You're not fond of using mods? It seems to be the only way to get these things out.
Unless you can give them as a present yourself to another sims but I doubt that is even possible.

I intensely dislike mods because I'm paranoid about my computer.

Plus, it's not a gamebreaking deal, and it's in a Dynasty Challenge file.

It's just extremely annoying.

I've just come across the 4 bills and an omni plant in my founder's spouse's inventory. All of which I can't interact with. Hopefully it won't happen with any of the other members of the family!

4 Bills? What bills are you talking about? And if you can't buy your bills this way, will the repo man appear more often?

They are not actually bills, just like the omni package is not actually omni seeds.  If you do put them back into the mailbox, they will convert back to gifts that people have sent. :)

Edit:  Well, I can't say they convert back 100% of the time.  After putting the stuff back into the mailbox, my sim got like 10 gifts and I put back 15 omni and 12 bills.  The next time she got mail, she got a few more omni and some more bills.  Funny thing, it only has happened to this one family.  Go figure.
