Faster Gardening Mod v7b

350 Comments / replies (Who?) - 9 Feedback Posts, 16 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.

Is there any way that this (or any other) mod could be effecting the price or quality of the goods you harvest? I have two level 10 sims with Super Green Thumb that have Dragonfruit plants and Blackberry plants that could fetch upwards of $130+ per harvestable. Recently though they've only been around $55 and $85 even though the plants are in Perfect and Pristine condition. Not sure if it's this or some other factor like fertilizer choice or length of time before harvesting. The prices are so unpredictable from one harvest to the next that it's hard to pinpoint.

I wouldn't think this mod does, at least not from what I see in the XML. This doesn't really modify the plant objects or their harvest items, just the actual interactions of watering and so forth, increasing the speed that the plants "needs" are fulfilled. The only real side-effects I know of are that, due to the shortening of the interaction, the sim's gardening skill will go up slower and hygenie doesn't drop as quickly.

Nope, none of the resources touched by the mod were changed in the Oct 21 update.

Awesome! Thanks. I was trying to figure out which mod's needed updating because I was getting some glitches, but I think it's my two script mods from TwistedMexi. Hopefully they'll be updated soon.

Great mod! Unfortunately, I think it conflicts with the latest patch, because my sim planted the UFO seed and had to water it, but it doesn't matter how much he kept watering it, the interaction was always there when I canceled the action (and I know that the UFO seed never needs watering). When I took this mod out, the problem was solved.

Thanks for the bug report, downloading the update now and will be checking all my mods tonight.

Edit: There were no changes to the XML for gardening in this patch, so this was either a glitch caused by something unrelated to the mod, or the mod has been bad for UFO seeds since the last update. Will look into it further!

I checked this on several households but have not been able to reproduce this bug, so I don't think it is an issue with the mod. This was probably just a glitched plant, I know sometimes exiting out and restarting the game will fixed bugged items.
