Then you should follow these steps to install the mods:
1. Make sure you have a folder named unpackedmod in the Mods folder.
2. Make sure your resource.cfg file contains a DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate line.
3. Then unzip this file and drop the package mod into Mods folder as usual.


it doesn't work for me..i don't know why.

Hmm, that's weird. I've checked the code, it's perfectly matched with the latest version (1.4.83.1010) and the mod works fine in my gameplay. So I don't think it needs updating. Your issue could be caused by other bugs. Maybe start another new game and try again?

I just wanted to mention that I had the 2.5X work gain and it prevented me from doing the 'freeze ray' option so i had to uninstall it to accomplish the "freeze a co-worker" task at work.

Took me about half an hour of removing mods one by one and restarting my game to figure out which mod was doing it -_- (I put each mod back in if it didn't fix the freeze ray issue).

That issue is definitely not caused by my mod. They're even not sharing the same code.
And I'm pretty sure mine is based on the lastest game code. Thanks for choosing my mod!

Thanks, really helpful. I personally could never tell the difference between when my sims were working hard and when it was just 'normal.

@mummy_001 @egwarhammer @linkster123 @RoseRedCupcakes @blacksythe
It turns out the former extract tool was out of date and couldn't handle the lastest files, making me unable to get the right code.
Now I've updated the mod with correct code from game version 1.5.139, sorry if it brought you any trouble.

When I click on work or study hard, it doesn't stick. Should I just leave it on normal?

Exceptional Mod.

Any idea if the mod will conflict with No Relationships Needed For Work v2, or ?
