THIS MOD OVERRIDES THE ORIGINAL FILES FOR THE COWPLANT. NO OTHER FILES WILL BE CHANGED.

Too many Cowplants? Tired of your Sims living forever?
Spread the gift of immortality with your neighbors today!

This mod allows you to sell Cowplants in your home owned business. Cowplants freeze their actions in their "for sale" state, so they can't eat your customers. I have not made them restockable, as they do not fit on any "for sale" pedestals. I have priced them at 5,000 Simoleans wholesale, which I feel is reasonable for such an unusual & amazing object.

Cowplants For Sale! was created to be used alongside Wintermuteai1's Growable Cowplant mod, which allows you to grow and harvest usable cowplants from special squares of soil. I highly recommend it if you find this mod interesting. However, it is not required for this mod to work. The link is included below.

When using both mods together, it creates a pretty profitable business for your Sims!
A tip: When harvesting for a business, be sure to select Harvest to put the Cowplants into a Sim's inventory for future stocking. Otherwise they get sold to who knows where for way cheaper than you can sell them.

Unfortunately, this mod DOES NOT work with SophieDavid's Buyable Aspiration & Career Rewards mod. (Sorry, I tried.) To use this mod, you'll have to remove SophieDavid's from your game for the duration of use. Instructions to remove it are at the link to their mod below. I don't know of any other conflicts, but ones that change the working properties of the Cowplant will probably conflict. I have Cowplant recolours, and they work fine.

Also, after much testing, I can say the mod DOES NOT affect receiving the Cowplant as a Career Reward.

TECHNICALLY SPEAKING: All I did was play with the OBJDs to get them to work with the BHAVs I added and made the whole thing override the default game files. No harm will come by removing this. Place it in your Downloads folder with all your other CC.

As far as compatibility goes, I've flagged it for Uni and OFB. That's all it should require to work. However, I have all the EPs and SPs, so let me know if I'm wrong and I'll flag it appropriately.

If anyone would like the lot I took the pictures on, I might upload it, let me know :D
I have some very basic programming skills, (and no prior experience with SimPE) but I'm glad I was able to pull this off for everyone to enjoy If there are any issues, let me know! Happy Simming! :D

Additional Credits:
Wintermuteai1's Growable Cowplant mod, which inspired me to create this mod in the first place,
mike_1102's Aspiration Rewards Sellable for Simoleans mod, which assisted me with OBJDs and BHAV questions,
SophieDavid, who encouraged me to work it through and offered tons of advice. Their wonderful Buyable Aspiration & Career Rewards for Lot Builders mod is amazing and I highly suggest it. (Sorry I couldn't get our mods to work together. )
Echo's Programmer's Guide to BHAVs, because otherwise I'd still be trying to figure out how BHAVS work,
iCad, who encouraged me and introduced me to SimPE with her fabulous Adjusting Maxis Autonomy/Motive Advertising Guide,
My fantastic friend Chris, who spent a few hours playing the trial-and-error game with me in SimPE and providing encouragement and advice with his actual real-life programming skills,
And of course, SimPE, without which this mod would have been impossible.

DO NOT REUPLOAD THIS MOD HERE OR ELSEWHERE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. DO NOT REPRODUCE MY CODE OR USE MY MOD IN YOUR OWN CREATION. ALWAYS LINK BACK HERE AND GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. :D
