This hack extends the display when selecting the compost bin info: It adds up all compost bins on the lot and displays also the total values of composted amount, amount to be composted, and the overall empty space. This shall help to get a quick overview in case the compost bins stand far apart from each other (see screenshots for example). I left in the function that the sim has to go to the selected bin, but only to the first one. It is no longer necessary to walk up to each bin and check it individually.

All game languages found in the original compost bin file are included! I simply copied the text and modified some variables. If you find any error in your language, please send me a PM with the correct text, and I'll update this object. Thank you in advance

This hack requires EP5 - SEASONS.
