These plants look like CC…but they’re not!

The new Desert Luxe Kit is free until October 17 for anyone who already owns Base game! Its neutral rustic furniture calls for some lively green plants in every corner.

Alas, the kit didn’t come with new plants BUT we’ll make our own using the indoor plants we already have in-game!

Just make sure that ‘bb.moveobjects on is activated before starting.

We’ll use this item from the kit which you can find in the coffee tables or end tables category in Buy mode.

Next, add your plant of choice over the table. You should be able to hide the item’s planter box within the Desert Luxe table. You can hide it by sizing it up or down by clicking ‘[’ or ‘]’ or even use Ctrl+9 to elevate the plant if needed.

Note: If you’re using a plant that snaps on tope the table, just let it snap to the table slot first and then add another plant over the table. If you’re satisfied with how it looks, delete the first plant on the table.

Now we have to search through debug to find this dirt mound from Base game:

To unlock it, open the cheat bar with Ctrl+Shift+C then type in ‘bb.showhiddenobjects’ and ‘bb.showliveeditobjects’ consecutively. Hit Ctrl+Shift+C again to close the cheat bar.

In the search bar, look for ‘dirt’ then select and place the item over the planter you made.

Elevate it 5 times with Ctrl+9 and size it down one time with the ‘[’ key.

You can also use these other two dirt mounds from Strangerville. Just search **DEBUG** and look for it in the whole debug menu until you find it.

Now you have a plant that can blend in any desert outdoor space!

Easier alternative

Or maybe don’t look through debug for just one plant. These items from different packs blend in perfectly with the end table. Plus, you can see their soil texture already!

You can also use outdoor plants in Build mode too! Just elevate them 5 times, add the dirt mound if you want, and they should look like this:

*These are all just Base game plants, by the way!

Almost any plant in-game can use this simple end table as a planter box:
