No More Weeds and Less Dead Plants TS3

No More Weeds and Less Dead Plants TS3
by Carrigon

This hack will greatly reduce the chance of seeing weeds on your plants. If you have sims with high gardening skill, you might never see a weed again. I've also hacked up how much many of these plants will produce a harvest. You should notice less dead plants after harvesting.

The Death Flower plant will still die on you. I can't fix it without hacking the core and I don't want to hack the core just for that one thing.

This was tested with sims who had high gardening skill, but they weren't Green Thumbs. It could behave differently with lower level gardening skill, but for the most part, you should see alot less weeds or no weeds at all happening. If you already have weeds, tend the garden and after that, you should start to notice a difference by the next day.

If you get a sprinkler and use this hack, your garden should pretty much take care of itself, unless you want to fertilize it.

Installation: If you have already downloaded my Homework hack, just unrar this file and place it in Packages. If you have not downloaded my Homework hack, you will need to do so as it contains the file folders and full installation instructions. TS3 hacks are installed differently than TS2.

I just finished my testing and for me it reduces the amount of weed that spawns every now and then.
Prior this mod i could have +20 weed and now i gets 5-10 weeds a time.

You're still getting weeds, though? I don't have any on my test lot. Give it a few sim days for the code to take effect and make sure you clear out any weeds.

Are you watering the plants at all? I'm using a sprinkler and my sims are fertilizing the plants. That could be the difference, I don't know. This code just doesn't behave right. But at least it is reduced for you.

Re: No More Weeds And Less Dead Plants TS3

Its mainly my sprinklers that does the work, except when theres 1-3 dead plants that needs to be removed and re-seed'ed.
I have yet to tried the fertilizer option.

Re: No More Weeds And Less Dead Plants TS3

I just reread your first post. My sim is a green thumb one and got the super green thumb as well from lifetime happiness as well as 10 in gardening. And as of now also the 2/3 challenges from the skill journal. I only need the reduced weed challenge now.

I read the link and i only got xml mods. I have read a bit about the core thing and i dont feel like going "awesome".
So what ever reason that our games behave differently its not because of the core mod.

However even though i still get some weeds i still appreciate your work :)

Re: No More Weeds and Less Dead Plants TS3

It could be the reduced weed challenge that will make a difference. All I can say is, the code behaves differently on different people's systems. And it does drive me crazy because I'm used to making hacks that work. This is turning into hacks that half work. :cry:

Re: No More Weeds And Less Dead Plants TS3

I say -50% weed is better than 100% :mrgreen:
Oh and only a few of my uncommen, rare and special plants die. I have only seen 1 dead plant after installing your mod, i think it was a bell pepper plant. And then of course the death plant that dies every 2 harvest, but thats unchangeable.
So overall it works nicely on my pc.

I love your mods and the time you spend making them :)

Re: No More Weeds and Less Dead Plants TS3

I wish I could fix the death plant. I did mod the core for my own game for it, but so far, all I've gotten it to do is not die, but it won't reproduce anymore death flowers. I don't have the right tools to really work it yet.

Now this is a GREAT Mod! Not a si ngle weed since installing the mod. Also a side benefit I've revived a dead death plant EVERY time it has died.

I forgot I hacked the Revive. It's at a hundred percent success. So I did kind of fix the Death Bush after all :mrgreen:

Re: No More Weeds And Less Dead Plants TS3

I just thought i would let you know that i got close to no weeds now, maybe 0-2 after every watering.
I actually asked another one in this topic for a mod list of his and after that i removed 4 mods.
One of them was yours, faster homework, then cyberops instant skills and then 2 of wintermute's mods.

Which one of them that apparently didnt like my game, i dont know. However i do know that this mod now fully comes to its glory.
I thought this info my shed a bit of light into this matter.
