Currently Working with patch 1.63

Autonomous Garden Tasks enabled so Sims will carry out tasks on their own. Another action disabled by EA.
Sims Can and do
  • fertilize
  • water
  • weed
  • harvest
  • dispose
their own gardens as well as on other lots and/or community lots.

As with my other mods, there is a fun instance to prod them along, but it is not a guarantee they will do the task. If your Sims are busy working, fulfilling personal needs, or other tasks they may not carry these out in a timely fashion. Obviously the more Sims you have the better chance you have of one or more taking care of the garden.

Skill levels for gardening must be obtained before the actions (user directed or autonomous) can be carried out: level 0 for watering, level 2 for weeding and fertilizing.

This mod will conflict with other mods that change autonomous or fun for gardening, but should be compatible with any that only change skill for gardening or change/edit the plants.xml.
List of XML files Altered:
  • DoFertilize_Plant
  • DoFertilizeAll_Plant
  • FertilizePlant_Plant
  • FertilizePlantAll_Plant
  • Harvest_HarvestPlant
  • Weed_Weeds
  • WeedPlant_Plant
  • WaterPlant_Plant
  • DisposeDeadPlant_Plant

One of the EA updates allowed for a "Fertilize All with Best Fertilizer", so your sim will fertilize with the best in their inventory. If they don't have anything in their inventory, they won't fertilize.

Includes less Hygiene so users don't have to choose between this mod and "Less Hygiene" by Chaavik. The Hygiene in this mod is the same as in Chaavik's mod.

If you wish only one sim to do the gardening, there is a no harvest version, alternatively you can put a fence around your garden and lock the gate for only the sim you wish to do the gardening. Then the "allowed" sim will perform tasks autonomously.

Versions: There are 4 versions depending on what you want, each of which is labeled in the description under the download. You can also pick from the Ala Carte, if you only wish to use a couple of the actions but not all of them.
  • You can only use one Non Ala Carte version at a time
  • You must choose either Ala Carte version or Non, do not mix the two
