==========================================================

This mod basically makes the garden soil tile available in the Buy catalog under miscellaneous/miscellaneous as a Sims1 style garden plot in addition to the tool in the buid catalog. this essentially fixes the problem that plots placed on higher floors are shifted vertically to a position (1/3 x floor) higher than the floor tile when they are placed with the default tool in the build catalog.

Requires Seasons
Compatible with AL, FT, BV & Seasons







Garden plots can now be placed on floor tiles without using cheats.
I also set the "keep buying" flag to 1 so a duplicate is automatically created after placing a plot, you know, like chairs and windows.
***Two versions available - one of the them also gives an even bigger quality bonus to plants planted on plots fertilized with compost.

Hello!

First of all thanks for this great mod! However, I have a problem, I hope you can help me... in my game I only see the fix on the catalog in residential lots, but when I go to a community lot it won't appear under Misc/Misc nor anywhere else. Could you tell me how to make it available for Community Lots??
Many thanks!!

I don't think i made this available in the community catalog but if you really want that, you can use the change lot zoning cheat to change your community lot to a residential lot temporarily and then change it back. I don't get it though, exactly why do you want this on a community lot?

Hi!

Thank you very much! I want this on a Community lot because my sims own a business where they sell their harvested fruits & veggies =P

The greenhouse is on the 2nd floor so it was a little weird having plants floating all over the place hehe. This mod has made my day =D!
Thanks again!

Does the compost boost apply to all garden plots or just the new buy mode ones?

It applies to all garden plots, new ones and existing ones, regardless of how they were placed.
