Omni Plant
« on: November 13, 2010, 03:47:30 PM »
Hi this is my first post (so please excuse me if it's not in the correct thread). Before I start I would like to say a huge thank you to Carl,Pam and all the other wonderful people who have made this brilliant guide possible.
My problem is, my Sim is a level 10 gardener who has done the omni seed opportunities,but since installing Late Night when I plant my seeds and then "click" on feed I don't get the list to feed it anything.
I would be grateful for any advice.
Thank you ;D

Welcome to the forum.  It would depend on if there is anything in your inventory you can actually feed your omni plant.  I know that is what happened to me and I guess I didn't have anything to feed it.  Books, fish and fruit are :) some of things you can feed the omni plant.  If you have those items and you still can't feed it then, not sure what the issue might be then.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

The only problem I have had with that is if I have too many items in the inventory. Because then the game takes so long to process them and pop up the list that it can seem like it will never happen...

Can you buy a chest or something and put some stuff there?

Also, you must wait for the omni plant to grow to maturity to be able to feed it.  I don't know if you meant to put that in there, but you said you plant it and then try to feed it.  Sorry if I misunderstood what you meant.

I'm glad it worked out, but this doesn't belong on the Technical Help board.  I'm moving it to Miscellaneous Help.  :)

My omni plants have grown, but I can not feed it with anything. I was going to feed it perfect deathfish to grow more fishes. Is it a problem that I use already perfect deathfish?
I seem to have the same problem as Teacup does.

I found that my gardener who grew the omni plant can't feed it.  I have to get another sim to do it.  He also isn't able to order any more seeds, grr.  I get the option at the mailbox but the task just disappears from his queue.

What exactly happens when both of you try to feed the Omni plant?  What are you clicking and exactly what happens?

The thing about not being able to order Omni seeds is a bug that came with Late Night.  Electronic Arts will have to fix it.

When I click on Feed nothing happens. When I order omni plants through the mailbox nothing happens also. I can click on the command and that's it.

You get no options at all?  Is the plant fully mature?

That's exactly what happens for me, too.

Absolutely mature. And it's been there for simweeks now while I am focusing on other stuff in the meantime. All it does is exist, feeding on my precious perfect life fruit while I am considering if I will remove the plant or not.

Try using the Check on Diet interaction.  Sometimes that will trigger the Feed interaction to become available.

Yes, done that. But with no success however. :( I guess we should wait for an EA update?

That's very strange, Leto.  Try planting more Omni plants and see if the new ones act the same way.  If you can order more seeds, that is.  There's a new bug that won't allow you to order Omni seeds from the mailbox now.

But, how can I plant more plants if I can not order any plants though? I have no save file with seeds which I could clone. And I believe there is no other way to get the seeds though. Yes, it is strange. And now I've moved my sim to another town, he still can not order seeds.
Also did he lost a few Charisma related challenges. I am noting this because I find it strange and maybe you could connect this with the first problem.
I don't know how, but you may know more about this than I do.

I was hoping that you would be able to order more seeds, but if they can't be ordered at the mailbox, then you've got the same Omni seed but that everyone else seems to have.  I really don't know why you can't feed your Omni plants.  Let's walk through this one more time.  You have fully mature Omni plants.  When you click on them and select "Feed" nothing happens.  But you do get the option to Feed, right?  Maybe it's because you have a lot of things in your inventory.  For example, if you have 100 apples, the game is going to pull up each apple individually for you to choose one for the Omni plant.  It can take a very long time to pull up the inventory list if you've got a lot of stuff.  Maybe try cleaning your inventory out except for the things you want to feed the Omni plant.  Or have a lot of patience and wait a long time to see if the box eventually appears after you click Feed.

I have around 10 or 15 omni plants and I notice after I harvest them, the feed option takes a while to come back.  I am not quite sure why, so when I am able to feed them, I will feed a few at a time and then harvest those and feed a few more, so I will always have some of them to harvest.  I am not quite sure why it is different in some games and some plants I have no problem with them, go figure.

I checked with my gardener in SV last night and was able to order omni seeds through the mailbox. The ones he got from his opportunity chain he has planted and fed. If anything changes where he can't order/feed, I'll try and make a note of it and maybe a workaround can be figured out.

I don't have a lot of stuff in my inventory. And I indeed see the option Feed when I click in the plant. Those many apples and stuff are in the 5 Star Chef refrigirator. But indeed I could try to empty it anyway just to see if this will fix it. But now you say it: for some reason it is mostly that stuff in your inventory can bug up your game. Wonder how.
I will get back on this. Notify this topic.

On a related topic, how do you plant a perfect Omni Plant?  Do you just have to keep ordering the seeds until you receive one?

Yes.  The quality of the plant doesn't change once it's planted.  Whatever the seed quality is, that's what the plant quality will be.  The only time it's an issue, though, is when you're trying to maintain quality of fruits and vegetables.  Everything else duplicates at the original quality no matter the quality of the Omni plant.
