The Sims 4 Cow Plant

Cowplants are back in The Sims 4!

There are more ways to acquire a Cowplant in The Sims 4: Fish, Dig, Explore Space, Graft or use Cheats. In this guide I’m going to tell you all about getting and growing your very own Cowplant.

Where to find the Cowplant Berry in The Sims 4

  • Fishing
    The fishing spots to find the Cowplant berry are in Oasis Springs Desert Bloom Park’s watering hole and the waters of the Forgotten Grotto (this can take a while). If you have The Sims 4 Get to Work you can easily find them in the waters of Magnolia Promenade.
  • Exploring Space
    You can explore the space with a rocket and you have a chance to bring back a Cowplant Berry.
  • Digging for treasures
    This berry can be found in every digging spot when you are digging for treasures.
  • Cheating
    Read ‘Quickest way to get the Cowplant’ below on how to obtain the Cowplant/Cowplant berry while using cheats.
  • Grafting
    Your Sims needs to be level 7 of the Gardening skill so they can graft plants.

    • 1. Plant a Snapdragon and a Strawberry.
    • 2. Take the cuttings of each plant when they are large enough.
    • 3. Use the cutting on the Strawberry plant to create the Dragonfruit plant.
    • 4. Take cuttings of the Snapdragon and Dragonfruit plants and use them on the plant with the cutting of another. This will get you the Cowplant berry.

Quickest way to get the Cowpant

There is a really fast way of getting the Cowplant in The Sims 4 by using cheats. You can just ‘buy’ the Cowplant in the debug mode. The debug mode can be triggered by using the cheat code:

  • bb.showhiddenobjects (Input the cheat code ‘testingcheats true’ first and hit enter)

Use the Cheat Console by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+C. Input the cheat code testingcheats true first. Input the cheat codes into the text input field that appears at the top of the screen. (Remove the cheat console by pressing ESC)

After using the cheat code type in ‘Cowplant’ and hit the search button where you normally search your objects on the left of your screen. You will find your Cowplant there. If you are going to place the Cowplant it will be in his first stage. It’s possible to own more then one Cowplant on one lot.

What is debug mode?
In the debug mode you have access to all of the in-game items like collectibles, special building originally designed for venues, prepared food and of course the Cowplant!

How to grow your Cowplant

The Cowplant berry can be planted at any gardening level. It only takes a couple of days for the Cowplant to fully mature and when it does you can feed, play, pet, eat cake, milk and collect a sample from the Cowplant. The Cowplant needs to be fed once every 12 hours, when it is hungry it will lure Sims by teasing them with cake. When you see the cake it means that your Sims need to feed it, when your Sim is trying to eat the cake they will be eaten alive. Half of the time your Sim will be spit back out and get a moodlet in return but there is a chance that your Sim will die and return as a ghost.

If you don’t feed your Cowplant within 24 hours of the last feeding it will die of hunger and cannot be revived. The only thing left behind is it’s skeleton. You can delete the skeleton in the build mode.

Stages of the Cow Plant

How do you milk the Cowplant?

Everytime your Cowplant eats a Sim (It doesn’t matter if they die or not) they will produce milk. If the Sim makes it out alive the Cowplant produces a milk based on the emotional state of your Sim. If you drink the milk your Sim will get a new emotional state instantly based on what milk your Sim was drinking.

If your Sim is killed by the Cowplant it will produce ‘The Essence of Life’ drink. Let a Sim drink this to add extra days of the life of a Sim. Drinking this will make your Sim instantly happy.

Make your Cowplant Dance!

When you put on music near the Cowplant she will start to dance!
