The mod enables Sims to write novels faster on their computers.
A Sim without the BookWorm/Artistic or similar traits will spend around 8 to 12 hours writing a novel (depending on the genre) from start to finish.
A Sim with the BookWorm/Artistic or similar traits will spend slightly less time writing a novel (depending on the genre) from start to finish, meaning that if a Sim (without the BookWorm/Artistic or similar traits) spent 8 hours, then the other Sim (with the BookWorm/Artistic or similar traits) will spend around 4 to 6 hours depending on what type of genre is used for the novel.
Each genre is unlocked for the traits the Sim have regardless of what skill level the Sim has for writing novels. Only Painting level 6 is required I believe to write a children's book.NEW
The new alternate version does not allow Sims with no skills to write a novel ranging from Children's to Vaudeville, meaning that they have to gain the appropriate skills and levels to unlock the genres later on.
This version retains the original features for faster writing and no bigger royalty payouts.
Install the mod into the following location if you have XP:
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages
Do NOT put the mod anywhere else but that location. Vista shouldn't be any different.
You must have Pescado's framework mod to be installed in order for the mod to work with Sims 3. You can find the framework mod at two locations:
For Advance Users installing manually:http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,15184.0.html
For Beginner Users installing the easy way:http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=344611
Copy and paste the website addresses into your favorite browser and visit either site to get the framework mod for Sims 3. Must have it or you won't be able to use the mods!
This mod has a different take from other similar mods as it will not increase royalties, number of royalties payouts (by week or month) or grant instant skill points.Updated - July 11, 2009 - Updated
Re-download the new version to replace the old mod. Same features.
