Faster Gardening Mod v7b

by scumbumbo Posted 28th Sep 2014 at 9:03 PM - Updated 8th Jul 2018 at 10:43 PM by scumbumbo : Bugfix for Version 7 - Weeding Planters
350 Comments / replies (Who?) - 17 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've been using this mod for ages without any problem.

However, with the latest patch (May 2016, V1.18) the plants change their appearance before my Sim begins watering them. Not sure if its your mod or not, but it never was a problem before. I have no other mods that affect gardening, just a "no plant sparkles" mod, but I've had that forever.

After June patch(1.19.28.1010), this seems to have issue.
Please check it out when you have time.
Thanks in advance.

After June patch(1.19.28.1010) can you update this mode please.

The new patch definitely messed with this mod in strange and unusual ways. Best pop it out until someone gets around to building a new version. Which hopefully is soon because farming alien fruit is big money.

I think EA has changed something for gardening time. Each operation takes 1-2 simminute, same with what made faster gardening. I don't think the game still needs this mod after patch 1.19

Wish I could say the same, but Spraying For Bugs on a single plant still takes exactly 20 Sim minutes for me after the update (had to turn the mod off because it was causing glitches for me as well). Desperately hoping this mod gets updated soon!

I don't know if this is because of the new gender update, but my sim resets when I try to water the garden. I took the mod out, and it fixed them problem. I know that Dine Out is coming out soon, so I don't expect a fix for this yet, but it's still a bug, and I'd like to report it! But, personally, I wouldn't update until Dine Out, only because I'm lazy af. But here's my video of the bug! https://youtu.be/S4Rty6nB6jI

Can confirm that the June patch is incompatible with this mod! Sims asked to Water Plants reset and boot the action from their queue :'(

After the last patch in my game the time for wet is 1-2 min and weeds is 2-3 min for each plants. The duration of fertilization is 2 min. The duration for spray is 2-3 min.

I think EA maded some changes. Now I don't need the mod.

I agree with catalina_45 and confirm - after last patch gardening is faster.

Gardening itself seems faster but it still takes ages to spray for bugs. I'll hold out hope for an update to the mod.

Can confirm this no longer works with the latest patch; trying to water and tend plants causes sims to reset.

Can also confirm that this mod is no longer working. My sims cannot tend their garden and when trying to do so, they reset as _Thundergirl_ said. Gardening is back to normal after mod is disabled.

I noticed that but it still seems to take ages to spray for bugs. Now it could be my imagination but I could have sworn that part was much faster with the mod.

I'm fairly new to Sims 4 and, as I've loved gardening in all the Sims versions, I downloaded this mod. I found almost immediately that my gardening Sims couldn't water the plants. When I removed the mod, it was fine. Many thanks, anyway, to anyone who has to ingenuity to make mods - I haven't!
