how to grow weed on sims 4

Filip was the first modder to add drugs to The Sims that can be used and consumed by Sim people. Previous appearances had been merely decorative, such as taking a ‘vase’ object and reprogramming it to look like a cannabis plant. He “started by trying to reprogram the game to allow players to actually snort a line of coke,” and went further from there– much, much, further.

Basemental includes cannabis, MDMA, cocaine, and amphetamines, as well as new abilities, such as drug dealing. Each drug affects its Sim user like the real one would, by increasing mood, energy, and productivity, keeping them awake, or making them very sleepy. Sims can grow cannabis, and make money dealing drugs. Sims can have hangovers and overdoses, both fatal and non-fatal. The extent of the realism is pretty shocking although, apparently, Filip has so far declined requests to add heroin to the game. What he does show, he says, he shows for the sake of realism and awareness, both good and bad.

Over the past eighteen years, The Sims has become one of the most successful computer games of all time. It has millions of users building virtual houses, filling them up with virtual furniture, plants, animals, and other stuff, and controlling the lives of the billions of simulated, or ‘Sim,’ people who live there. And just like real life consumer culture, these Sims can get more and more new stuff with downloadable mods created by other users. Now, finally, your Sims can have cannabis, thanks to the Basemental mod, created by a modder called Filip. Herb.co interviewed him, to find out exactly how he did it.

“I don’t really want to make this mod into a glorification of drug use,” Filip told Kotaku, “that’s why it’s important to have an addiction system, fatal and non-fatal drug use.”

How to grow weed on sims 4

Harvesting Weed
When the weed has fully grown you can harvest it into your inventory and then add it to the cure jars. Once cured you can sell to your clients, smoke it yourself, or store it. Uncured buds can be replanted to expand your weed growing empire.

Helpful Tips
My Sim is starting out with zero gardening skills and zero weed dealing skills. To make the process more successful and profitable you’ll want much higher skill levels for both. Remember, weed dealing skills up once you become a drug dealer and keep selling to your clients.

Purchase Weed Jars
The higher your weed dealing skill the better weed curing jars you can purchase. The basic “empty weed jar” is $12 on the computer using the Basemental Headshop. This jar requires 15 uncured buds of the same strain to start the curing process. It will take 48 hours for the buds to cure.

Basemental Drugs mod adds the ability to take and use illegal drugs in The Sims 4. You can also become a drug dealer and make a lot of money fairly quickly with very little risk. In this guide I’m going to take you through the steps of growing your own weed for the purpose of reselling or just smoking.

The first thing you’ll need to do is get the seeds. You can do this by purchasing the traditional base game planter, clicking on it and buying Cannabis seeds ($350). They’ll instantly appear in your inventory. You can also purchase these seeds through the computer via the Basemental Drugs Headshop. Same price but they’ll be delivered to you by mail. The last option is to purchase them from Build/Buy mode.

Planting Seeds
Locate the Cannabis seeds in your Sim’s inventory. Click on the seed pack to open them for the uncured buds. Now you can drag them directly on the ground for planting or use the planter. Click on the buds to plant the same way you would plant anything else.

Hybrid Strains
There are 2 hybrid strains, Sour OG and Purple AK-47. You can’t grow these from seeds you’ll have to graft and slice plants together.
