Gardening for All Seasons!

This mod will make ALL your gardening plants grow, spawn harvestables, and evolve in ALL seasons!

Version 1.5 is compatible with The Sims 4 version 1.82.99

** I have split the mod into TWO different versions! The original "5am Edition" will cause plants to spawn fruit at 5am like in the default game.

** The NEW "11am Edition" will now spawn fruit at 11am instead of 5am! This will allow you to garden at the Science Lab without need of my Graveyard Shift mod!

** Note: The Cottage Living plant "Nightly Mushroom" was set to spawn at 11PM, I left it the way it was set, rather than change it to 11am.

Note: If you use the 11am edition with my Scientist Career Graveyard Shift mod OR the 5am edition WITHOUT Scientist Career Graveyard Shift, plants will not spawn at the Science Lab.
You should either use GFAS 5am WITH Scientist Career Graveyard Shift or GFAS 11am WITHOUT it.


History

I've always loved the gardening feature of The Sims 4. It always had so many uses! Food ingredients for cooking, flowers for romantic gifts, dates, and laundry, Dragon Fruit for money, Death Flowers to save your loved ones from Grim, Honey from the Bee Hive for food, money and protection from the elements... So many uses!

I was making so much money from Dragon Fruit, Normal quality was getting $250 a fruit, 8 per harvest, $2000 a plant every day!

Then Seasons came out.

They nerfed it down to only 4 per harvest, only 1 SEASON A YEAR! I hated it so much I removed Seasons. Until I created this mod that is. I created this mod at least a year ago but only used it myself, and have used it ever since.

It ONLY changes the seasons the plants grow in so they all grow all-year 'round. Nothing else. Weeds and insects have NOT been changed and will not infect the plants all-year. Plant evolution rates and growth rates are unchanged as well.

These are the plants that have been converted to grow in ALL seasons:

Base Game
Plantain, Tulip, Potato, Mushroom, Onion, Carrot, Basil, Parsley, Spinach, Tomato, Death Flower, Grape, Strawberry, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, Bluebell, Rose, Daisy, Lily, Orchid, Snapdragon, Chrysanthemum, Bird of Paradise, Pear, Apple, Pomegranate, Cherry

Cottage Living
Mushroom (Nightly,Verdant,Charming,Spicy,Lovely,Mysterious), Blueberry, Raspberry, Chocoberry

Eco Lifestyle
Soy Beans

Get To Work
Quill Fruit, Fang Flower, Glow Orb

Island Living
Kava, Taro, Pineapple, Coconut

Jungle Adventure
BlackBeans

Outdoor Retreat
Chamomile, Fireleaf, Elderberry, Huckleberry, Morel Mushroom

Realm of Magic
Mandrake, Valerian

Seasons
Christmas Rose, Begonia, Crocus, Holly, Dahlia, Snowdrop, Bell Pepper, Green Peas, Green Beans

* All other plants already grow in all seasons and a mod isn't necessary.

This mod is incompatible with any mod that changes any of the following tuning files:

I like the idea of this mod but why not just make a greenhouse so you could harvest all year round? I'm just curious not trying to be rude.

Because (most) "Sheltered" plants have smaller harvests than non-sheltered. If you want the same size harvests, you'll have to have about two indoor plants for each 1 outdoor. Plus greenhouses take up more room.

Different plants have different spawns. For example: Dragon Fruit plants spawn 2 fruits indoors and 3 outdoors. So, for every 2 plants outdoors, you'd need 3 indoors for the same size harvests.

The only exception I think is the Money tree. It has larger harvests when sheltered. Money Trees have 5 outdoors and 7 indoors.

Does this mode conflict with faster gardening and evolve all plants?

If you mean the mods originally by Scumbumbo and updated by LittleMsSam and Basemental, no, they shouldn't conflict.

Then don't use this mod? Lmao

Not without my releasing portions of his mod... which I don't want to do.

He should be able to do it easily enough.

Thank you so much! Recently I started playing with multiple households, rotating. Some of my sims have gardens and it's all fine for a while. But then I rotate, play with others, and by the time I come back the plants are out of season, I have to plant new ones and by the time they fully grow, I'd like to rotate again. It's so annoying. And I don't want to put greenhouses everywhere. They are suitable for some sims, but not all. This mod really helps with that, it saves me so much trouble. So again, thank you very much for making it!

There are currently a LOT of bugs in the gardening system. It's only going to get worse now that they're releasing ANOTHER gardening pack that will likely be severely broken like every other lately.

You can try putting down a beehive and keep the bees calm.
