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.

Faster Garden Tasks - Sims 3

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.


Faster Garden Tasks - Only Skills Unlocked With No Increased Weed Chance

Features:

Weed is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
Fertilize is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
No increased chance for weeds to appear.


Faster Garden Tasks - No Unlocked Skills And Rares With No Increased Weed Chance

Only the harvesting, weeding and watering times are reduced.
No increased chance for weeds to appear.


Faster Garden Tasks - All Skills And Rares Unlocked With Increased Weed Chance

Features:

Faster Garden Tasks - All Skills And Rares Unlocked With No Increased Weed Chance

Features:

All rare seeds are unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
No increased chance for weeds to appear.


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!

I'm now with the last patch (1.48) and still have the same problems : dead plants cleaning and money trees harvesting will provoke a resetsim and the money tree that was being harvested will after that be unusable. He'll continue to produce weeds/money bags but the sims won't be able to use it at all.

I tried just removing the faster gardening mod, kept the less hygiene decay deleted the caches and tried again : no more problems with money trees (don't have any dead plant at the moment to try).

Edit:
Had some dead plants now and it's also ok without the Mod.

Thanks for this mod! And by the way the buggy money trees are related to the gatherer trait

It may be so, I just read something similar in another forum.
Still I don't have a problem in my game with the gatherer trait and money trees as long as this mod stays out.
Same game (using gatherer trait) with the mod and every money tree breaks.

So obviously the gatherer trait changed something and broke this MOD.

The trait itself seems to be working fine in my game, though I have some MODS that may solve the issue (Awesome MOD and some of twallan's also).

is it updated for 1.55?

The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. - L. Lavner

I really wish this mod could get updated. I have found your mods very useful, but using the timeslower mod from NRaas, then gardening takes forever. There isn't much quite like this mod anywhere else, so I'm hoping you could find time to look into this again and update this wonderful mod ^^

Thank you for making it I've used this a lot, but it's getting behind.

Thank you, I actually created a farmer (Benjamin Farmer) and he has such a hugh garden; takes a long time to get it all done. I hope it works really fast, I don't want the plants I just tended to - to regrow before the job is done.

The file does not seem to work for 1.67. My Sim will always reset if she wants to take care of the garden
