Version 4 Update: Updating to version 4 is REQUIRED for the November 9, 2017 patch for The Sims 4 (it may work with some older versions as well, hard to be sure in hindsight). Be sure to remove the old version if you upgrade!

Description

Name Your New Song!? OK, hmmm, something country-ish... how about "Thank God I'm a Coun"... nope, too long. I'll try "These Boots Were Mad"... no. I'll have to go with something shorter... Or I could just fix it. You can enter long book names, why not song titles?

OK, so it's not some great major milestone of a mod, but it does fix something that really annoyed me (and maybe it is just me). This will increase the maximum length of a new song title from the default, which was only 20 characters, to a new maximum of 60 characters. I could have made it longer, but sixty seemed like it was plenty. Good enough for pretty much any song title except "When The Apple Blossoms Bloom In The Windmills Of Your Mind I'll Be Your Valentine" or "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict" and who would use those for song titles?

Thought I'd share it with the community though. I like it.

Installation Instructions

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod may cause conflicts with other mods which change sim song-writing actions. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly, your game may crash, frogs may rain down from the sky...

This mod requires The Sims 4 to be patched to at least version 1.0.732.20 (October 1, 2014).
Version 2 of the mod is required for version 1.3.18.1010 (December 16, 2014) or newer.
