Gardening for All Seasons!

This mod will make ALL your gardening plants grow, spawn harvestables, and evolve in ALL seasons!

** If you have the Seasons expansion pack, GFAS will now allow planting even when the ground is frozen! - Thanks to PeachFuzz for locating the tuning file!

Version 1.10 is compatible with The Sims 4 version 1.107.151

NOTE: Version 1.10 Merged packages now contain support for the Crystal Creations Stuff Pack! Make SURE you have Crystal Creations before you use the Merged Package! If you do not have Crystal Creations, make sure to use the Separate packages version!

** I have split the mod into TWO different versions! The original "5am Edition" will cause plants to spawn harvestables at 5am like in the default game.

** The NEW "11am Edition" will now spawn harvestables at 11am instead of 5am! This will allow you to garden at the Science Lab without need of my Graveyard Shift mod!

** Note: The Cottage Living plant "Nightly Mushroom" was set to spawn at 10PM, I left it the way it was set, rather than change it to 11am.

Note: If you use the 11am edition with my Scientist Career Graveyard Shift mod OR the 5am edition WITHOUT Scientist Career Graveyard Shift, plants will not spawn at the Science Lab.
You should either use GFAS 5am WITH Scientist Career Graveyard Shift or GFAS 11am WITHOUT it.


History

I've always loved the gardening feature of The Sims 4. It always had so many uses! Food ingredients for cooking, flowers for romantic gifts, dates, and laundry, Dragon Fruit for money, Death Flowers to save your loved ones from Grim, Honey from the Bee Hive for food, money and protection from the elements... So many uses!

I was making so much money from Dragon Fruit, Normal quality was getting $250 a fruit, 8 per harvest, $2000 a plant every day!

Then Seasons came out.

They nerfed it down to only 4 per harvest, only 1 SEASON A YEAR! I hated it so much I removed Seasons. Until I created this mod that is. I created this mod at least a year ago but only used it myself, and have used it ever since.

It ONLY changes the seasons the plants grow in so they all grow all-year 'round. Nothing else. Weeds and insects have NOT been changed and will not infect the plants all-year. Plant evolution rates and growth rates are unchanged as well.

These are the plants that have been converted to grow in ALL seasons:

Plantain, Tulip, Potato, Mushroom, Onion, Carrot, Basil, Parsley, Spinach, Tomato, Death Flower, Grape, Strawberry, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, Bluebell, Rose, Daisy, Lily, Orchid, Snapdragon, Chrysanthemum, Bird of Paradise, Pear, Apple, Pomegranate, Cherry

Cottage Living
Mushroom (Nightly,Verdant,Charming,Spicy,Lovely,Mysterious), Blueberry, Raspberry, Chocoberry

Eco Lifestyle
Soy Beans

Island Living
Kava, Taro, Pineapple, Coconut

Outdoor Retreat
Chamomile, Fireleaf, Elderberry, Huckleberry, Morel Mushroom

Realm of Magic

Seasons
Christmas Rose, Begonia, Crocus, Holly, Dahlia, Snowdrop, Bell Pepper, Green Peas, Green Beans

* All other plants already grow in all seasons and a mod isn't necessary.

This mod is incompatible with any mod that changes any of the following tuning files:

There are two options:
1) If you have ALL the packs listed below, you can download just the "Merged" package.

Only pick ONE of the two downloads!

Simply place the package file(s) somewhere in your game's Mods folder.

* Note: There are no package files for Vampires / Cats & Dogs in the 5am separate packages because all plants in those packs already grow in all seasons! They are included in the 11am pack so they can spawn at 11am.

* Delete the old package(s)
* Copy in the new package(s)

None that I know of.
