This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hi! I just for the first time had a Plantsim in my game the other day, and I thought it was so awsome that I could just "magic up" babies! ... Until I saw how UGLY they grew up to be!! i found out the root of this evil was an ugly sim called "Ideal Plantsim"

Then I thought, surely if you can replace Pollination Technician, you can replace Ideal Plantsim?
So I did some snooping and found out it was possible!!

So, here's my Ideal Plantsim!
I made it rather Elvish, as I imagine a plantsim would be.
Tested it in game, kids are way cuter now! and if you turn your plant babies human, they look pretty good as elves.

Have fun making better looking Plantbabies! ^^

So *that's* what the Ideal Plantsim is for! I've seen it around in SimPE, but I've never understood why it was there - or for that matter, why all plantsim babies turned out looking so ugly even though their mothers looked perfectly normal. So thank you for this - and for clearing up my confusion.

Fantastic! And your ideal plant sim female looks spookily like my youngest sister. Her ears would only be that pointy if I pull them tho...

I don't have sims 2 seasons(I DID, but it doesn't work on my computer since I had a windows version for a mac) and when I saw this I thought it would have a picture of the ugly plantsim child(when I had the game the plantsim toddler was cute, but she didn't grow up). Do you think someone could perhaps upload a picture for me? I'd very much appreciate it! BTW, love the plantsim replacement! I'm saving up to buy a mac ep, and seasons was the best one I've played so far! So, maybe I'll download it if I do get seasons!

this is great! thankyou. i agree they look ugly, i think this particular part of the game would be so much better if the *magic up* plant babies just looked like their mum/dad

that's what i thought would happen when i first tried it, like when you cheat your person to have a baby with themselelves, it's like a little clone of them. which is why i was so angry with the results of the blant babies!

Could someone point me in the direction of the tutorial for how to replace the Ideal Plant Sim so I can create my own replacement? Thanks

I waited to comment until after I had a plantsim baby so I could see exactly how well it worked. Now I have several, and wow, does it work! I'd never had a plantsim before so I can't compare them to childen of the default Ideal Plantsim, but after creating one (after a long time! So much pesiticide, eesh) with this default replacement installed I absolutely love the little things. They're adorable! I took some screenshots, if anyone's interested in seeing my results.

(If anyone wants to know, I'm also using these Plantsim default replacement skins)

So, I'm very happy! Thank you very much for this replacement. <3
