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.

Hi,

I love this mod, but I have a problem wich annoy me quite much. When I've this mod in game, no one can wash the dishes, they gather all the dirty dishes, but instead of washing them, they just put them at the table. I tried with 4 different sinks all my sims and the maid. As soon as I removed this mod from the mods folder, they washed the dishes again.

I hope its a bug you can fix, because gardening wasnt a pain in the ass with this mod.

I wish to heck I could, but that's not actually a bug in the mod but one in the game itself. I know that sometimes removing a mod can help, but the mods don't actually cause the problem and removing them it isn't actually what solves the problem, often just restarting the game is what does it. Sometimes I've had to reboot. Sometimes it's a buggy object and you just have to sell and buy a new sink.

Installing bobdbg's Sitting Clean Up Action Fix mod solves several of the dish cleaning bugs I've found.

The files in the lotcacheddata folder would often get buggy but should no longer be a problem after the latest patch, EA got rid of them completely they were so frequently corrupted. Make sure that folder is empty, I know I still had some files left in there after the patch, not sure if the game was still trying to use them but it should no longer create them at least.

The worst (similar) situation I had required me to run the "repair game" feature in Orion to get it running again, but I don't think that should be required for the dirty dishes bug. I'm hoping that the elimination of the lotcacheddata feature will make the game more stable for these kinds of things.

There was a mod for NPC Gardeners, but the site it was hosted at was closed quite a while ago. Jae (Princemajik here on MTS) has a YouTube mod review of it and was making the mod available to those who asked for a copy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qToyNis9nfQ

That comment/offer is a month old, so the mod may no longer work with the latest patch, I don't know.

When this mod is installed with the new patch, sims are unable to weed their gardens. (I would have checked watering and harvesting, but unfortunately I only have UFO plants). Just a heads up!
