Faster Gardening Mod v7b

350 Comments / replies (Who?) - 10 Feedback Posts, 14 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.

Doesn't need WinRAR to open the zip file, you can just use Windows to open it. Then just take the .package file that's in the zip file and put that packge file into your Mods folder. There's a page on Sims Wiki that explains the process in detail:

It should not conflict. Fast Skills does not modify any of the same game resources.

I have checked this mod for compatibility with the January 13 game update and there do not appear to be any changes required.

Corrrection - there were some minor updates that needed to be made. They shouldn't affect game play much, just fixes some EA bugs. Version 3 MAY be compatible with games prior to January 13, but I'm not sure and not about to uninstall and reinstall to try and find out.
