Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.



COMPATIBLE: BASEGAME PATCH v1.63 ~ v1.67;

This mod allows you to request a Gardener from any Telephone (not Mobile) to take care of your Garden. Just click on the Interaction "Call Gardener > Request Service" from the any telephone.

It's a "Recurrent Service" like the Maid so, once requested, the Gardener comes everyday at 8AM and leaves at 6PM.
If there are more than 50 gardening tasks, will come 2 Gardeners.

What he Does???
  • Water (also control the Sprinklers to reduce the tasks)
  • Weed
  • Harvest (automatically transfers to the "Home Fridge" (if it's edible) or the "Shared Family Inventory" (not edible))
  • Dispose Dead Plants
  • Rake Leaves (this functionality only works if you have Seasons EP)
  • [new]You can request the Service on additional Lots you own.
  • It's possible to configure the Tasks: Enable/Disable (Water, Weed, Revive, Harvest, Fertilize, Dispose, Rake Leaves);
  • Fertilize (25% of the plants with random Quality)
  • Revive Dead Plants (not Barren Plants)


The Harvested Products will be automatically transferred to the "Home Fridge" (if it's edible) or the "Shared Family Inventory" (if isn't edible).


UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS

- Cancel Reset the Service using the Telephone (not Mobile) interaction "Call Gardener > Cancel Reset Service", wait until the gardeners leave.
-Save your game and Quit.
-Replace the package File with the new downloaded File, so restart your game and request the Service again.


Uninstall Instruction:
-To avoid corruption of the Saved Game:
- Cancel Reset the Service using the Telephone (not Mobile) interaction "Call Gardener > Cancel Reset Service", wait until the gardeners leave.
- Save your game and Quit.
- Remove the package file.


Known Issues:
- The gardener can't garden if you have a locked gate in your Garden.
- Don't try to cheat/modify the npc using mods. (example: change his age or behavior, or add him to your family, etc).

Default Excellent Mod...
The only thing is I believe it is having a serious confliction with Twallans Register Mod HERE .

No biggie. Going to change a few things in your tuning and get it to work with it. Thanks for the excellent mod.

The 404 error was fixed by our lovely leefish. I too had the problem, and asked her why the download was acting up.

This works like a charm, thank you!!

I didn't get a chance to work on it a whole lot today..And I was waiting to hear back from Twallan if maybe he figured out what was causing Register to freak out with it. Aside from that I did get a chance to test it without Register to see if it would work without it and I didn't run into any issue at all after Register was taken out.

Still an excellent Mod regardless...I would like to see this implemented in my game when I get Register to except it.
