Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
SEPTEMBER 2017: I have not opened TS3 for a number of years. I have no idea if this mod still works. If it does - great! If not, I'm sorry, but it won't be updated.

What is it, what does it do?
I've always had an issue with the time it takes Sims to do their homework - the EA default is 3 Sims hours (roughly), and from my experience that is extremely unrealistic. There have been faster homework mods previously, but none are compatible with pets or the latest patch (the homework XML was modified in the Pets patch), so I have made my own.
I only edited the base completion rate, so all bonuses or deductions for mood, age, traits, etc. are still the same.

What are the options?
There are 8 flavours;
Time-----------------% per minute (Completion Rate)
EA Default - 3 Hours-----0.556
4 Hours-----------------0.417
2.5 Hours---------------0.667
2 Hours-----------------0.833
1.5 Hours---------------1.111
1 Hour------------------1.667
45 Minutes--------------2.222
30 Minutes--------------3.333
15 Minutes--------------6.667
IMPORTANT: Only install ONE at a time, they will conflict with each other.

Conflicts & Compatibility:
This is a simple XML tuning mod that only edits the Homework_0x279b8bc53dcefa96 XML.
It should therefore only conflict with other mods that edit this file.
I'm not sure if it's compatible with Awesome or any other core mods, as I do not use one, however I doubt there would be any issues unless they modify something to do with the homework. If you encounter any issues with Awesome, comment and I'll add a warning.

Compatible with base game patch 1.39 through to 1.67
I made this with all EPs and SPs installed, however it should work with any combination. If you encounter any issues, again, please report them and I'll either try and fix it or add a warning.
