They wanted to use things like steak too. Too bad they couldn't actually do it. :D

Yeah, really. In the Bottomless Nectar Cellar article I wrote I could have had Zeus and Hera make rump roast nectar. Mmmm...mmmm...good! Of course, then they would have been the butt of Olympus. Oh, oh, my sides hurt!
Make nectar with a roast? I wonder if it would taste like the Turkey Soda that Jones Soda Co. used to sell around Thanksgiving. That stuff had a very "interesting" flavor. :P

You know Metro, it's never a good thing when the comedian laughs at his own jokes, and it's even worse when they're the only one laughing ;)  ;D

Hey, how do you know that I was the only one laughing? There could be players right now — in some remote undisclosed location — that are still laughing at that. They might have even been laughing at it before I made the post.

Dang it Pam, why'd you have to confirm what Metro said! >:( Lol, I have to admit, I guess I thought your joke was pretty funny Metro ;D

I'm experimenting with nectar recipes that give both moodlets, preferably with the minimum of life and flame fruits used.  So far I've found one great recipe:

1 Life Fruit
3 Flame Fruits
5 Pomegranates
1 Watermelon

Thanks for the guide - it's been very helpful!

Found another Great recipe:

9 Cherimola Blan Grapes
1 Apple

Modifying to avoid a triple post.  There is a source in France for Cranerlet Nuala grapes without getting the axe or meditating - I got them on my first trip there.  The Secret Garden adventure has a Cranerlet Nuala vine in its dungeon.

Found my first Amazing 1LF3FF recipe, so I thought I'd post the list of all the Greats & Amazings found with this combo so far (still a long way to go...)

1LF 3FF 5 Pomegranate 1 Watermelon - Great
1LF 3FF 4 Pomegranate 2 Renoit - Great
1LF 3FF 4 Pomelo 2 Plum - Great
1LF 3FF 4 Watermelon 2 Plum - Great
1LF 3FF 5 Meloire Grape 1 Pomegranate - Great
1LF 3FF 2 Meloire Grape 4 Lime - Great
1LF 3FF 4 Lime 2 Watermelon - Amazing

Is there any way to sell the Nectar that's as or more profitable than taking it to the Nectary to sell?

You can drag the nectar bottle to your "sell" box in your Sim's inventory.

Do you get the same price?

To my knowledge, the only factor affecting nectar price once the nectar has been made is whether it has been aged in a basement rack. So, whether you drag a bottle to your Inventory to sell, or travel to France to sell it, I can't imagine there being a difference.

If you are selling stuff, such as fruits, vegetables and fish, to the supermarket instead of just through your inventory, I remember reading somewhere that you get 10% more for it than just selling it in the inventory (haven't confirmed it myself, but if anyone wants to, be my guest). Thus, I think this is actually a valid question. There would obviously be a reason why the developers included the possibility of travelling to France and sell it, so it would be illogical to dismiss that possibility before someone has actually tested it.

There is no absolute truth, but the Forum Rules still come pretty close. Pay them a visit.

Your logic is quite sound. However, what a pain in the butt when you think about it.

Yeah, I agree Metro. Think of it in this way: The time you would in that case spend on going to France in order to sell it, you could spend at home working to make up the difference yourself. The usefulness of this in that case would then be if you just happen to be in the neighbourhood in France you could stop by to sell something.

You absolutely get a better price on the fruits vegetables and fish by selling them at the store - I've confirmed that.  I also got a 10% premium at the Nectary for selling wine I made myself there, but no bonus for selling wine I found in the game at the Nectary over selling it in my inventory.  At about 1.5K simoleons base price per bottle when I'm ready to sell it and a cellar full of racks of aging nectar, that 10% premium really adds up.

I agree, I wouldn't make a trip just to sell wine because it's a pain in the butt, but now that I've got a comfortable vacation house there and a certificate of partnership, the premium on selling the wine at the Nectary pretty much pays for the trip for my whole family (and then there's the payoff for opportunities while there, all the titanium to pick up, all the books I can write off the aging clock...) my last trip I bought land, built a house, bought a car, and made about 20K simoleons on the trip.

Speaking of vacation homes - if you have a nectar cellar in your French chateau, will the nectar age while your sim is back at the daily grind in Sunset Valley or Riverview?  Or does time stop there (in France) when you're not traveling, the same way time stops in RV or SV when you travel?

I haven't done nectar cellars, but I've had a garden in China.  Time stops while you're gone, unless they've changed it.

I think this has come up before and it seems that time also stands still when you leave your vacation. The big giveaway for me that that was the case is leaving the China base camp right after my Sim finished a meal. The plate of food was left on the table. He goes back to China 3 weeks later and the plate is in the same spot and had not spoiled.

That's hilarious, Metro!  Reminds me of the honey they found in Egyptian tombs that was supposedly still edible after millennia...

I've tried this before. Time stops in WA areas when you're back SV. My nectar didn't super-age when I came back after a long vacation gap.

Funny how the nectar does not age, but the sims do. 
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Then you can say the same thing about Sims that do not age in vacation.

Thanks - that's very good to know.  I stocked a wine rack in my vacation home, next time I'll be sure to clear it out into inventory before my vacation is over.
