Faster Gardening Mod v7b

by scumbumbo Posted 28th Sep 2014 at 8:03 PM - Updated 8th Jul 2018 at 9:43 PM by scumbumbo : Bugfix for Version 7 - Weeding Planters
350 Comments / replies (Who?) - 16 Feedback Posts, 8 Thanks Posts
BUGFIX July 8, 2018 - Version 7 had several bugs which caused issues for weeding and tending gardens that used planters. These bugs should now be fixed in version 7b.

Updated June 21, 2018 - Version 7 should be compatible with the latest game patches as of the June 19, 2018 patch.

Older versions have been removed and are no longer supported.

Description

This is a mod for The Sims 4 to speed up the simple gardening tasks, such as weeding and watering. The more complex tasks, such as planting and harvesting are not affected. Tasks will take about one-third as long with this mod in place.

The mod also triples the distance a sim will consider walking between plants to perform these tasks.

XML Mod Installation Instructions

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod may cause conflicts with any other mod which change gardening tasks. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly, your game may crash, frogs may rain down from the sky...

Version 7 of the mod should be compatible with games patched to version 1.44.77.1020 (June 19, 2018) or later.

I'll look into this with some further testing, it wouldn't be the first time I missed something somewhere - sure would be easier if it was happening in my own game! I know what the animation for the vacusuck weeding is, so I'll do a complete crossref of the entire game to see if I can find something else that is referencing it somewhere.

@Kayleena - Thanks for getting me that copy of your save game which exhibited the weeding bugs. Drumroll, please.....

It was the PLANTERS (*facepalm*)

I've released version 7b which adds several interactions which affected weeding plants that were in planters. I setup a garden with a mix of regular ground plants and those in planters, dried a bunch out, gave some weeds and others bugs and tend garden is now running without a hitch.

Oh, and when using the regular weeding (not tend) there is no more vacu-suck for the plants in planters as well.

Sorry that took so long to figure out, folks! Do let me know if there are any new or continuing issues you're seeing.

You don't need Seasons itself - no expansions are required, but you would need to have your game patched to the latest version.

Thank you for responding so quickly. It is patched to the latest version so I will try this out, I hate how long it takes to weed and water so I can't have a large garden for a single sim.

Yes, it should be okay, none of the XML it modifies changed with this patch.

I missed this so much, thank you for keeping it up to date and for answering so many questions, some of which I had myself.

Edit: Is there anyone who knows of a mod that makes plants evolve faster?

This one should be working and not require any update, the only change to the XML was to sections of the code which should not be changed within the mod.

I haven't noticed any issues with either this or Evolve All. I'll do a full comprehensive check on it soon - as busy as I am I tend to leave those checks for a rainy day unless I notice or hear of a specific problem.

Thank you for this mod!!!
I hope you've had a chance to check its compatibility with patch 1.50.67, but I could not find any notes in the description.

Tested with Seasons/Island Living, it's working fine.
I've also installed the "Evolve All" mod, which is working as well, but be aware that it changes the new system (in which you can evolve a plant remotely) back to the old system (the Sim goes to each plant and talks it into evolving). That's how I like it anyway. =)

Thank you, Scumbumbo. Your mods are simply the best!

Updated this Mod. Did not use Scumbumbo's Version before and had to redo it from scratch to make sure it is up to date. I also added a Legacy Edition Version for Players who have the Legacy Edition installed. Make sure you install only the package you have the right Game installed for!
