Evolve All Plants v7c

317 Comments / replies (Who?) - 14 Feedback Posts, 8 Thanks Posts
Updated 06-21-2018 --- Fixed notification announcements and updated the animation to be more suitable.

Updated Dec 13, 2017 - Version 7b now restores the feature of Sims being able to autonomously evolve all plants.

Updated Dec 9, 2017 - The updated mod doesn't do everything the old mod used to do, but it should suffice for now at least! I wasn't even seriously considering touching this mod at all with all the plant objects that would need changes until I noticed in the comments that someone posted that the game was supposed to allow all plants to be evolved by default now but it wasn't working properly.
  • Fixes the evolve plant action so that all available plants on a lot are evolved. The game was updated at one point to supposedly allow all plants to be evolved in this manner, but they were missing some crucial bits of XML code required to make it work past a single plant.
  • Fixes the bug which prevented plants being evolved past the first one as counting towards level 2 of the nature aspiration.
  • Since they added the "continuation" XML to the plant objects, only three XML files needed to be adjusted to make these fixes, making the mod a LOT easier to update in the future (before every single plant object needed to be edited with every game patch, a time-consuming and error prone task).
  • This doesn't include the old mod features of autonomous plant evolution, or the inclusion of evolution occuring during the "tend garden" cycle.
  • Still fully compatible with Faster Gardening (which has also been updated).
  • All outdated versions of the mod have been removed and are no longer supported.

Description

This mod for The Sims 4 will cause the Evolve Plant action to work like weeding and watering, the sim will automatically move from plant to plant evolving each plant which is eligible. In addition, the Evolve Plant action has been added to the Tend Garden cycle.

This mod is fully compatible with the most recent version of the Faster Gardening mod.

Installation Instructions

For version 7 there is only one flavor of the mod, no separate packages are required anymore for different game packs. Simply pop the package in your mods folder and EAxis's mistakes go bye-bye.

The mod was written for TS4 version 1.44.77.1020 (June 19, 2018) and is incompatible with earlier versions.

This mod may cause conflicts with other mods which change gardening actions or plant objects. 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.

Sorry for the confusion. The aspiration file is just a patch to the original version of the mod which caused a game error.

If you are downloading now just get one of the version 1.1 files - you do not need the patch.

Thank you very much,man.
I'm too lazy to repeat same actions even if they are brand new features.

I hope you get this working soon for Outdoor Retreat! Until then, I will just be using faster gardening. It's better than my Sim taking 3 hours to water/weed all the plants he needs for herbology.

I love this mod, thank you! however, it's not working right for me I think. I cant "evolve all" there's no option, it does evolve some of the plants when I use "tend garden" or "evolve" sometimes, but not all of them.

Thank You! I do have Outdoor retreat & wondered if it was messing up a bunch, havent played enough to figure out its quirks.

Do you think you will be doing a mod for fertilizing all? Its miserable keeping up on that too!.

The evolve action will evolve all ELIGIBLE plants - they still have to have been tended enough to allow for evolving. So it's a convenience, not a cheat. There is no "evolve all" just use "evolve" and it will tend to all the plants it can.

The new plants in Outdoor Retreat will not be fixable to work with Evolve All at this time. There appears to be an issue with the game right now that doesn't allow XML overrides to work on the game pack items.

Fertilize All probably isn't possible as it requires a selection of an item to do the fertilizing and uses up that item. If I get really really po'ed by it someday I may look at the fishing action which repeats usage of the same type of bait and see if something along the same lines can be done with fertilizing. Don't hold your breath, but I've been known to do things that at first glance I thought... NO NEVER, THAT'S TOO MUCH WORK.

Version 2 has been updated to work properly with the January 13th patch. It also works for Outdoor Retreat, but the four new plants will not be in the "Evolve All" cycle. Once that is possible to fix, I will create an add-on for OR. An additional small package is now available to add support for the four new plants in Outdoor Retreat.

Thanks to a quick reply from SimGuruEugi, we've learned how to make changes to the Outdoor Retreat items. There is now an addition to the version 2 of the mod that adds support for the four new plants in Outdoor Retreat. Again, this is an addition so you will still need one of the base Evolve All version 2 mod packages in order for that to work.

That was quick! Thanks go out to both of you!

I apologize in advance for being such a noob but I downloaded EvolveAll_OutdoorRetreat_v2.rar & EvolveAll_FasterGardening_v2.rar as I have Outdoor Retreat with the Jan, 13 update. Is this all I need or do I also need EvolveAll_v2.rar? I ran the game with the two files I mentioned and it worked great other than being a little boggy. I can not be sure that it was this mod or another as I have just a few mods but quite a bit of CC.

You got the right files, The EvolveAll_FasterGardening_v2.rar version includes Faster Gardening in addition to the basic Evolve All mod as the two mods would conflict otherwise.
