Grandpa's Grove is coming out Thursday, November 7th!

If you're like me (and let's face it, who isn't?  Wink  ), the best part about Store releases are the blogs that Designer Copeland writes! There isn't a better way to get excited about new stuff. So, without further ado, is his latest musings on Grandpa's Grove!
The first venue with a tractor, made for hayrides.

(Pst: follow us on Twitter @SimGuruTatertot and @SimGuruCopeland for more tidbits!)
I’ve always loved fall.  The leaves change, the harvest is ready and the orchard is perfect for hay rides. Today I’m excited to show you one of my personal favorite new lots, Grandpa’s Grove.
Quote :
Grandpa’s Grove has a series of dirt roads that you can arrange and place however you’d like.   But when you complete a loop and place the brand new tractor on the starting piece that’s when the fun begins. 
Sims from toddler on up can enjoy an exciting hay ride around the farm.  Build relationships while having oodles of fun!
Quote :
But the tractor is also an amazingly useful farming tool.  You can take gardening to an amazing level.  You can swap out the hay ride wagon to a pull that can water or fertilize all of your plants.  And even more exciting, when your plants are ready you can put on the harvester to harvest nearly a hundred crops at a time! 
Quote :
Grandpa's Grove is an old barn that's been converted into a lovely home and has some really wonderful vintage style objects that comes with it.  There are some also some great fall fashions, including some for toddlers! Watch for Grandpa's Grove November 7th

Looks like it's the dirt roads that's the big thing with this. That's a good way to solve routing for the tractor. Looking forward to this.

I am all over this one when it becomes available!

Random wishful thinking..... Wouldn't it be cool if for TS4 one of the EPs was a "Farm Life" type deal? I mean it could be the "Pets" equivalent but with expanded stuff. Maybe that is what the idea behind all of these farm-esque sets is? A trial to see how people like the idea? Okay... wishful thinking, I know...

I was trying to figure out what the other harvestable plant is, and low and behold they have one in buydebug with no name! eeek So you'll have to plant it to see what it is. THAT"S JUST WRONG! !Mad

OK, this track laying is getting on my nerves  Mad   Apparently the track lights up green when it completed right (I think) well mind is green and still keep getting the same message.  The ground is level and there are no hay stack!!!!



Anyone have a a grip on this track laying?

Have not tried. Maybe it has to connect all around like a race track.

Finally !! cheers    I just went for the simplest way, as not really wanting a whole lot of trees.


Now for the planting and testing, hope it's a lot easy than these tracks were!

I know I said the same thing. And the surprise plant is suppose to be corn, but it's not working right.

LadyGee: You probably already figured this out.

Some additional notes on Grandpa's Grove: The T dirt road pieces are awesome.  You can change the direction of the pieces so that you can customize the path your tractor takes.  I'm super excited to see the farms you all come up with! The Grove is primarily apple trees, but you can switch them out for the new orange trees which can be found in buy debug. If you do your own dirt road, make sure it has a start piece.  Then put a tractor on top of that piece.  You can only have one start piece per dirt road. Let me know if you have additional questions.  :-)
More ...... wrote:
  • Look for the tractor and dirt roads in the vehicle section.
  • Toddlers can ask for or be given rides, but can't give rides (they can't drive.)
  • All harvestables, including orange trees are in buydebug.
And in the same thread there are several comments about the Corn being 'broken'. Think I will wait til they fix it.

Could not resist snapping up these gifs:

Okay ... so I am blaming my son ... I was telling him about the farm set and he insisted Whistle  that I should get it.  Who am I to argue ... (ahem). Spinning
Edit: It is a residential lot but Hetty (in AP) cannot afford the nearly 180K to buy it. But she could use the tractor anyway. And she gained a Gardening skill point in the process.

Fun! I placed in Moonlight Falls to test, which had a perfect empty 64x64. Tested with the Goodfellows. Awful house IMO but nice farm. Smile

Does the tractor only tend the trees or can we use it for the plants too?
