Compatible with Showtime / Current Patch 1.3x

Use any of the PETS mod flavors.


----------


Sims 3 Pets

Updated for Pets with the same descriptions and flavors as below to choose from. There were minor code changes from Pets. Choose one flavor to install if you have Pets as your latest expansion pack.


---------------------------------------


Sims 3 Generations

Updated for Generations with the same descriptions below and flavors to choose from. Use the Generations mods instead because of a change to one of the files.


---------------------------------------



Sims 3 Late Night

I checked these mods for compatibility with Late Night. They can be used. Also works with the latest patch if you don't have Late Night.


Sims 3 Ambitions

I checked these flavors (mods) for compatibility, and they should work fine with Sims 3 Ambitions.

Sims 3 Ambitions Game Version: 4.0.87.006001

Make sure you patch to the latest version or Ambitions.

World Adventures

These mods appeared to be working with World Adventures and Patches 1.7.9+. Haven't found anything wrong with them yet, but if you do, please let me know.


Faster Garden Tasks Series' mod flavors enables Sims without the Green Thumb trait and Super-Green Thumb reward to harvest, weed and water the plants much faster than they originally did, but they perform the tasks slightly slower than those Sims with the Green Thumb trait and Super-Green Thumb reward.

All of the flavors from the series have the harvesting, weeding and watering times reduced.

Features:

Weed is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
Fertilize is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
Chance for weeds to appear is increased to compensate for the faster weeding task.

Features:

Weed is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.

Special Notes:

Sims without the Green Thumb trait and Super-GreenThumb reward will take roughly 30 minutes to water at least 3 plants and 30 minutes to weed at least 3 plants. Sims without the Green Thumb trait and Super-GreenThumb reward will fertilize the plants at the same rate as those with the trait and reward do fertilizing the plants.


Sims 3 only!

Note:

This mod may or may not conflict with other similar mods. Use Indie Stone Compatibility Checker to ensure there is no conflict between this mod and other identical mods. It's one or the other, not both!

So the answer to the first question "Is it compatible to 1.26" is "No" ?

Grab S3PE and take a look! There's two files in the mods affecting plants primarily.

Is this mod compatible with the 1.29 patch?

So, explain this to me... You said that "This mod enables Sims without the Green Thumb trait and Super-Green Thumb reward to harvest, weed and water the plants much faster than they originally did, but they perform the tasks slightly slower than those Sims with the Green Thumb trait and Super-Green Thumb reward."
This means that with the mod sims with the trait and the reward still harvest in the same speed as the original, or their speed is also increased?

Any word on this? I really miss this mod

I get the impression that the gardening mods are a bear to update with the Supernatural patch. I know the Faster Gardening mods on the Naughty Sims Asylum site aren't updated either, and they always update darn near immediately. So I wait patiently and check every day (I prefer Chaavik's).

I know they have added aliens in Sims 3 Seasons, but this is perhaps a little extreme of them!! I'm not sure if I'll laugh or cry if I saw Chaavik in Sims being thrown out of a alien ship... especially because I have no idea how she looks like irl...

Does anyone have any idea if there's a problem with the current version?

Yeah, I experience that one too :/ Thankfully you can delete the dead plants/trees manual without cheating or anything! I hope she comes back sometime. Some have gone tired of Sims 3 - lets hope Chaavik is not one of them

Nope, I haven't tired of Sims 3 yet. Just that I don't have a lot of spare time lately.

And no, I wasn't abducted by the aliens. Buuut my Sim seemed to be very well liked by the aliens 'cuz he's always abducted every single night.. O_o

I will look and see if there is anything wrong with the mods when I get a garden going.

There seems to be an error with your mod when it comes to removing dead plants. My sim would go to the dead plant then reset motives. I've been able to duplicate the error in a couple of games. Other than that one small problem it works great with 1.42. Thank you.

#49 Old 22nd Jan 2013 at 2:01 PM
I had that same problem already with showtime, I just deleted the dead plants instead of asking the sims to remove them and it worked great.
Had also some problems with the money trees but then stopped playing so I didn't give it more thought.

Will try with seasons now that I got it

Money trees aren't supposed to be affected by these mods.

These gardening mods only adjust the Fun and Hygiene values, nothing else. The child-enabled mods seemed to be working okay, but I haven't gotten them to pull weeds yet. So I'll look.
