Haha, sorry Pam. To be honest I've actually forgot this was about nectar because I saw eventually only stuff about vegetables. :$

I don't know if this question is asked before, but does it really matter on which basement store the nectar ages? To be sure I've put them all on the lowest level, but I'm curious about if it really does matter.

I tested this way back in January before the Nectar Challenge started and I could not find any differences in basement levels.

Hi! I'm new and maybe this was already posted but I was experimenting randomly and found this "Absolutely Amazing" recipe, and it requires pretty low level ingredients!  ;D I made it twice to make sure it was correct.

7 Cherries
2 Meloire grapes
1 Plum

@Kelli: welcome to the forum too!

Those recipes are looking very nice, even though I haven't tried them out myself. They indeed fulfill every mood a nectar bottle can give a sim, but do they also fulfill all the wishes a sim can get from drinking nectar? I mean: wishing to drink a glass of nectar worth more than 100 simoleons, wishing to drink one worth more than 500 simoleons etc. I'm not sure how far those wishes go, but I do know they give some really good LTP points!

Of course you can age a bottle to get the most money out of it, but I assume your list is based on bottles taken right out of the nectar making machine.

Yes, right after making it, those were the values listed in my skills tab.  I had my Sim drink each one, and they all gave him Full of Life: 50 x 8 hrs, Commanding Complexity: 25 x 8 hrs, Warm Fuzzies: 15 x 5 hrs and Sugar Rush: 15 x 4 hrs.  I mistakenly believed that was the max.  When I was on another Sim and drank the same Plum nectar while visiting, it gave Commanding Complexity: 30 x 8 hrs. The other buffs stayed the same.  I didn't have the 2nd Sim try the other nectars.  Maybe my game is glitchy, I'm not sure.  Can one Sim appreciate nectar more than another?  I know I can have 2 Sims on the same bed, and one gets +30 while the other gets +60 from the comfortable furniture.

What are the traits of your two Sims?

I have heard that the more nectar a Sim drinks the more they appreciate it and get more interested like wine testers.

Hey Kelli,

Can one Sim appreciate nectar more than another?

Well the simple answer is "yes," the detailed answer is "I'm not quite sure how it works."

I've had two Sims drink the same bottle of nectar, and one will think "All Nectar tastes the same." where the other will wax on about how great it'd be with food or whatever. They always seem to get the same "moodlette" buffs, but (and I think it depends on the Sim's personality / traits), they report feeling differently about the nectar. Whether there's any meaning "game-wise" to what they report, I don't think there is. It just seems the Sims I've had who drink more nectar seem to enjoy it a lot more, and blab on about it to a higher degree.

I'm not sure if this helps, and I've surely not studied it enough to know exactly what's going on in the Sim heads / behind the scenes with the game.

A little off topic, but have you ever noticed the more they drink, the more sophisticated about drinking they get.  First they twirl and sniff, then they gargle and the last one is the pinky going in the air as they drink.  I thought that was pretty neat.  I would have never noticed it if my sis had not told me about it.

@Kelli:
That with the bed is because probably one of your sims has the couch potato trait, which will increase the appreciateness of comfortable objects. I'm almost sure that is why wildredchild is asking for your sims traits.

One sim can not appreciate nectar more than another. They (bottles) all give a sim the same moodlets. Personally, I wish they had different tastes, like Chinese sims loving flame fruit nectar, while a France sim will cry out 'chaud, chaud, eau, immédiatement!' while running to the nearest water crane after drinking flame fruit nectar.

Sounds like they can get drunk. :P Something I've tried to see myself ingame, but it seems like my sims where very 'alcohol proof.'

Yep, Salty, that's what I meant: I don't want to call it a "hidden trait," but the more a Sim drinks nectar (which Leto, just has complex sugars innit ... no alcohol! hehe), the more highfalutin animations become unlocked. They seem to "appreciate" the nectar more, and I've noticed those who drink nectar frequently have more wishes / wants show up associated with nectar.

I don't know how often the list of "amazing" recipes is updated, but I think once I get done with my current challenge, I'll go through this thread and check and then post all the "amazing" recipies, just so it's written down and in one place.

I figured it out!  I was too careless when reading.  There are way more buffs!  The little buff picture of the green grapes...it means many different buffs.  8 sims drank the plum nectar.  Here's what they got:
     Commanding Complexity  25 x 8 hrs (2 sims)
     Commanding Complexity  30 x 8 hrs
     Fabulous Finish  25 x 8 hrs (2 sims)
     Breathtaking Balance  25 x 8 hrs
     Astonishing Aroma  25 x 8 hrs
     Astonishing Aroma  30 x 8 hrs
Each got only 1 green grape picture buff, but it was always a new surprise.  I don't think it has to do with traits, because 2 teens with identical traits got 2 different values for Astonishing Aroma.  Oh, and also, one sim had a wish to Drink a Perfect Bottle of Nectar for +1000 pts. and it did fulfill that wish.

Haha!  I didn't know that!  I haven't had my Sims drink much nectar and had no idea what I was missing.  I have to see this now.  :)

LOL, I guess I could see where that might make a person swear off nectar and anything related for a while.  I remember reading quite a few posts on members that said if they saw another nectar machine, it would be too soon.  Maybe that will pass and somewhere down the road you might pick it up again.  :D

I hope your sims will stay out of trouble after doing this. ;)
Please don't feed your teenage sims to much of it. And don't let a cop catch them. It will screw up their future. :P
