Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
* Compatibility: Seasons, Bon Voyage, FreeTime, Apartment Life
* Modifications: Semi-Global (affects all flowers)
* Hack Version#: 1.0

Quick Info
~~~~~~~~~~
There are 2 hacks included here.

The first one allows Sims to water one-half tile flower beds, even if a diagonal fence or foundation runs through the tile.

The second one, named df_water_inaccessible_flowers_fix.rar, does the same but also allows you to water all flowers regardless of their location on the lot, including completely inaccessible or blocked ones. It works for the "full tile" flower beds if the tile is completely surrounded by fences, walls, or foundations. And it allows for the disposal of all dead flowers, even if 100% surrounded by fencing or if completely inaccessible (such as using cheats to put flower beds on your roof!).

Effects
~~~~~~~
Originally, the game did not allow any Sim or Hydrobot to water these flowers. It would also prevent you from disposing of such flowers if they died. Having such a flower bed fully surrounded by fence tiles also prevented watering.

Sims will still display a 'door' icon above their heads while watering, which means that they are blocked by a wall/fence/foundation. However, the watering will still be successful and the flowers will get the water they need to live. All animations work perfectly.
