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

Features:

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:

Weed is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
Fertilize is unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.
All rare seeds are unlocked for Sims with no skill level in Gardening.

Faster Garden Tasks - All Skills And Rares 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.
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!

Nothing is enabled to allow children to perform gardening tasks.

You can only choose and install ONE flavor from the series!

Hi! Thanks :-)
Your mods usually work for me, but this one: Chaavik-FasterGardenTasks-OnlySkillsUnlockedWithNoIncreasedWeedChance-Sims3 fail to do what it says. My sim could only dispose of a plant that was covered in weeds .
Indie's hack checker doesn't find any conflicts with the other hacks. I have put the file through the compressionizerRedux. I'll try a different flavor now and see.

Ok. I'm back with news: I've tried "Chaavik-FasterGardenTasks-AllSkillsAndRaresUnlockedWithNoIncreasedWeedChance-Sims3" Now my sim who hasn't garden in her life yet gets the options to tend and weed the garden, but they are greyed out for some weird reason . The kind of grey out you get when a sim's bladder is way too low, and you get the options but they are unavailable. I hope that describes it well enough. Well, back to playing!

Do you have any mod that affects gardening itself but not the gardening skills?

Yes, I do. Several actually:
JJ_GardeningIsFun
MoreHarvestables
CookingAndIngredientsOverhaul (Life&FlameFruit)
LifeFruitGives7Days and EffectiveFlameFruit if those count.

And I have Awesome mod, but at the time I tested I believe I didn't, I am not sure though.

Sorry for getting back to you only now. Thanks for the reply.

I would guess that it's JJ's gardening mod that might be an issue if he or she modified the same file I modified for different purposes. I do have another gardening mod to boost the Fun motive, and they work together without issue.

It's a matter of choosing one over the other for what you want for yourself. The rest of the mods modify different files as far as I know from doing a couple myself for my own use.

I'll try exchanging the two mods. Thank you!

The skill is still not added to a young adult sim's options. They are gaining fun though. It doesn't seem like anybody else has this problem, which means that I have a specific combination of mods that cause it. In which case I shouldn't have bothered you in the first place.

Thanks for the support you give us with cool hacks.

Is this mod compatible with patch 1.6/1.7 and WA? Thank you.

#9 Old 24th Nov 2009 at 8:35 AM
I don't think so.

December 2008: Sorry guys UC Berkeley and all my other sports have made me to busy to sim. So simming is on hold.

Zack - I have extensive knowledge and skills that not many other people have. Okay I decided then! I'm going to be a Jack of all trades.

I ran the game for a week to test the mods from this thread and determined that these mods do not need any updating for World Adventures and Patches above 1.7.9.

But if you find something wrong, please let me know.

I didn't play the sims for several monthes and I had this mod. Now I reinstalled the game and tried to play again with the EPs and without your mod, and...Well, let's say I rushed here to get it again and I am really glad it works with Ambitions EP.
Thank you very much.
Just to know : Is it compatible with your other gardening pack (the less hygiene decay, I never used it but I wondered why the 2 mods are separated)

I do not have Outdoor Living Stuff yet. So, it probably won't work.

Until I get a specific file from a friend to check for compatibility, you will have to wait.

This mod doesn't seem to work with Outdoor Living Stuff. I was wondering what would need to be done to fix this and make it work?
Test Subject
#19 Old 21st May 2011 at 10:42 AM
I regret to have installed Outdoor living because I was really used to this mod and now I don't even make the sims garden again because it takes the whole day to water 3 tomatoes. Sad for the sims with the lifetime want to have a perfect garden, but one can't just have everything in life, isn't it ?

I saw you made the less hygiene decay compatible with OL. Do you plan to update this one as well, by any chance ?

In response to the last two vague posts, which mods did not work for OLS? I had no issue using this mod with OLS installed.

But Generations is coming up soon, so I will be looking into that and seeing what changed between OLS and Generations.

I had OLS installed and never had any problems... With Generations either, works pretty fine with me!
