317 Comments / replies (Who?) - 4 Feedback Posts, 20 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  • All outdated versions of the mod have been removed and are no longer supported.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.

Oh thank you! I was annoyed at having to click on each plant to evolve it. Only if you could add fertilizing into the mix...

This is great, thank you! It's been SO annoying to have to zoom in to find the sparkly ones and click on every plant individually.

Thanks for this! But in one Aspiration, you have to "Evolve 5 plants" My Sim always evolve all his (7) plants, and it just counts as one. Would be really great if you fix that :)

Thanks for noticing this, I have fixed this in version 1.1 of the mod. I've also made a small "patch" available to fix the issue without having to download a whole new copy.

Oh, and your English was fine, better than that of many who claim English as their native language! :D

I want to thank you too for this great mod (I installed the version including "faster gardening"). But after installing it, my sims couldn't cook anymore. They could bake something with the baking machine, but they couldn't prepare any meal by using fridge or stove. After removing the mod and installing "faster gardening" only, everything worked smooth.

first off thanks for the mod, the cooking issue can be fixed by removing the following ((deleting)) from my documents/ea/sims 4 localthumbcache.package and the contents of the cache folder.

wkndplaya suggests clearing your game cache data to solve this issue. The mod doesn't change anything to deal with cooking, so this sounds like a good possibility for a fix for your issue. I'm having no problems and use the faster gardening version, with many other mods, as well. Let me know if this helps.

Thank you. So, the third mod variant (with aspiration) it's separate from the second (with faster gadening) ? Or I need both? (sorry for English)

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.
