Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

As suggested here, another garden helper. This global hack reduces the time needed for harvesting trees and plants to about 60%. It is possible to further reduce the time by removing some animations, but that doesn't really look good in the game. If this is requested though, I'll gladly offer a second hack.

To check the actual times with and without the hack, have a look at the six screenshots. #1 to #3 show the hack, #4 to #6 the usual time needed.

This hack requires EP5 - SEASONS
