317 Comments / replies (Who?) - 9 Feedback Posts, 14 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  • All outdated versions of the mod have been removed and are no longer supported.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.

Thanks so much for the quick reply. Gardening was so tedious without this mod, love it!

Many thanks for your modes !!! Not only this, but all the others!
One request (if you have not asked) - Could you make sure that the option "talk to the plant" (and also "Fertilizer Plant") (do not know how these functions are called in English) also act on all the plants in the garden (fertilizer could make: choose a plant, then choose a plant or fish that want to use as a fertilizer (the number of which is greater than or equal to the plants in the garden) and the sim itself fertilizes all the plants selected fertilizer).
If at all possible, of course.
For the "talk" I think it is possible, since there are no more options, and windows as a fertilizer.
But if possible, it would be nice to and fertilization took place "automatically".
With respect and gratitude for your work, Ann.

Does it include faster gardening? Or do I have to download faster gardening separately? Sorry, maybe it's just me but it's not that clear to me.

Yes, if you install them separately. Download the Evolve Plants version that includes Faster Gardening (EvolveAll_FasterGardening_v2.rar) and remove the old Faster Gardening from your mods folder.

Also get the Outdoor Retreat add-on in addition to the base mod if you have that game pack.

I installed the EvolveAll_FasterGardening_v2.rar and EvolveAll_OutdoorRetreat_v2.rar but I have to click on the outdoor retreat plants individually to evolve them still. When I click on one of the outdoor plants it will evolve that one and then the base game plants, but no other of the new plants.

The mod is amazing, it has definitely sped up gardening phenomenally but I, like PsychoSim99, downloaded both the base and the Outdoor Retreat mods and I still have to evolve them all individually. Still an amazing mod, thank you so much!

Checked on this tonight and I missed a lot of the plants in Outdoor Retreat somehow. The Outdoor Retreat Add-On has been updated to version 3 and now includes all of the plants from the Outdoor Retreat game pack.
