Compatible with 1.67

Another remake of my old mod for TS2, this time it's the skill book. Just like the old one, sims will NOT actually read it. You just need to put it on the ground/surface or in sim's inventory and then you can click on it to bring up the interactions. You can alter both main skills and hidden skills.


Interactions:

-Master
---[skill name] : master a skill

-Add skill or Level Up
---[skill name] : add a new skill or level up by one

-Set skill level
---[skill name] : set specific level of a skill

-Skill Info : Show skill info


Available in Entertainment/Hobbies & Skills for §500. And yes I simply added a "3" to the old texture because I was lazy super busy and didn't have time to make a new one



CHANGELOG

2012/11/26 :
-Added Chinese and Taiwanese translations (Credit: jarod95)

2011/10/21 :
-Updated for 1.26.
-Revamped code to accommodate pets.
-Fixed Skill Info issue (now max 25 per page).

2010/10/29 :
-Updated for 1.17/2.12/3.8/4.5/5.2/6.0.

2010/06/26 :
-Added a new function to show skill info.
-Refined interaction definitions so pie menus for already maxed-out skills wouldn't show up.
-Added Italian translation for catalog description (Credit: Cristina)



IT DOESN'T WORK! HELP! NO INTERACTION!
This mod is only compatible with 1.26/10.0 and newer patches. (You can pm me for older versions) If your game version is indeed 1.26/10.0 or newer yet you still get no interaction, please verify whether you're using the new CC setup under Documents. If you still have problems, I solicit you to read this for instructions. Don't ask me for help if you're getting no interaction, post in the help section instead.

Finally, if by any chance you have another skill-related mod, try removing it. I don't think they can conflict since this is a self-contained modded object, but just in case...

I loved the book of talent in TS2 it was really helpful!
Thank you so much!

Question... is compatible for WA?

EDIT: I have WA and I installed it. No crashing, and it showed up in buy mode. I bought is and placed it but... I can't interact with it. No options. And I can't put in inventory?

Sounds more like a conflict of mods to me, as I'm running it with WA without issue.

I have WA (2.2.8) Maybe you haven't installed the framework dll properly. Do you have any other object mods? Do they work? There's more info about it in the install instruction, I think.

THANK YOU! Going to try it out now I'm sure it'll work perfectly ^_^



Ok it didn't work perfectly I'm having the same problem too. When I brought it into my game there were no interactions and I can't put it into my sims backpack. I don't have any other mods installed at all and I'm also running version 2.3.33. Could my version be the problem?

Guys, if this is the first mod you've installed ever for TS3 there's a chance you haven't placed the framework correctly. Read this thread for more info: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=382769 I've made sure I've done everything DigitalChaos wrote

Well, I've installed mods before, so I know how to install them and have the framework. I just received and installed World Adventures. So i cleared all mods from my downloads except this one. I'm having the same problems those people are having, like i can purchase it, but can't interact with it or put it in the backpack. So it isn't compatible at the moment apparently.
I'd really like to see it worked on, since it sounds like a cool mod =]

So, does this include the WA skills? Or just the base skills?

Since I got the sims 3 I have had nothing but problems when it came to mods.....even fixing this and that has done nothing. But I too have had the same issues. I can buy it, place it but no interaction. Still love it though and am currently figuring out why I am having this problem

But it's built with WA So it must be compatible or it wouldn't work in my game either... would it? I have resource.cfg and mods/packages folder in WA dir though. But I have the framework in both base game and WA dir. Other than that, I don't know what's happening...

You need to have all the mod stuff in the world adventures folder as well I had the same problem then I put everything in there and it works fine just copy and paste everything over to it as well ^^

This looks like a really great mod and I'd like to use it, I'm just curious before I install it - will this work with the base game's latest patch? I don't have WA installed yet, so will it work?
