Sometimes, the necessary time for a certain action is way too long. For instance, a garden full of flowers and shrubs cannot be tended by the gardener because there are simply too many plants. Or, with Seasons, the time needed to talk an Orchard Tree from yellow to dark green: more than two hours! With this parameters, it is quite impossible to make a living out of seeding and harvesting. The same applies to raking: my sims scratch about twenty times on one spot until finally all leafs are piled up. More than three or four trees mean, the sim is busy from the morning to the evening. This hack reduces the raking to about 4 - 5 times, until all leafs are neatly pulled together. I think this is an acceptable value, especially when there are other plants to be taken care of.

To see what time is actually needed, call up the two screenshots and check Start Time and End Time.

This global hack requires EP5 - SEASONS!
