03-31-2013 This Mod has been fully tested to work with the patch version 1.50 of The Sims 3 University.

Hello there Mod the Sims 3 Community! Thril2 here with a simple XML tuning mod for The Sims 3 University that will increase or decrease the value of your Sim’s classroom academic performance gain during any class they attend while enrolled at University. The consideration for developing this tunable game mod manifested solely from the desire to construct a mod that provides a means to assist the user in customizing their University experience according to their personal preference.

I have taken the liberty to setup some presets for you to download. All that you are required to do is select 1 file to download and install from the list and wa-lah, you are on your way to an even more unique college experience while your Sim attends University. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated and welcomed. Thank you for your time and consideration in choosing to take a look at or try out this mod.

Happy Gaming!!
