Updated January 17, 2016 - Version 5 is now available for download and includes updates made with the Dec 4, 2015 game patch. This update is a required update if you wish to use club features in your garden. Please remember to delete the old mod if you update.
Versions prior to version 4 have been removed and are no longer supported.
This is a mod for The Sims 4 to speed up the simple gardening tasks, such as weeding and watering. The more complex tasks, such as planting and harvesting are not affected. Tasks will take about one-third as long with this mod in place.
The mod also triples the distance a sim will consider walking between plants to perform these tasks.
You may want to consider my newer Evolve All Plants mod which has a compatible version of Faster Gardening included.
XML Mod Installation Instructions
Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.
This mod may cause conflicts with any other mod which change gardening tasks. 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. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly, your game may crash, frogs may rain down from the sky...
Version 4 of the mod is for games patched to version 18.104.22.1680 (March 26, 2015) or later.
Version 5 of the mod is for games patched to version 22.214.171.1240 (December 4, 2016) or later.
This may be of interest if you are experiencing a conflict and know how to debug such issues, or if you are creating another phone mod and wish to incorporate these changes to eliminate conflicts. If you do create another mod using these changes, I would appreciate receiving credit.
