Toddlers Can Read BOOK OF TALENT FOR TS3

PROBLEM FOUND!

Turns out that this mod is NOT compatible with most books. Toddlers weren't applied with the reading animations so it doesn't work (unless somebody loves me enough to supply me with the animation and a 41,239 page explanation on how to apply it). Name will be changed to Toddlers Can Read Book Of Talent for TS3


I was pretty excited when my Sim SERIOUSLY gave birth to triplets... Just my luck, you know?
So, I told myself "I'll just skip the pre-crap and use Treeag's Book of Talent." And to my dismay, TODDLERS AREN'T ALLOWED TO READ IN-GAME!
So, after searching FOREVER, I realized that if I really wanted to skip this, and I truly hate having to have to make them age early, I'd have to either:
1.) Trigger an Age Transition (yeesh)
2.) Do it my dang self.

I picked number two.


Please note that this mod will conflict with any other mod that edits these files:
ReadBook_Book.ITUN
ReadBook_BookGeneral.ITUN
ReadBook_BookSkill.ITUN
ReadBookChooser_Book.ITUN

I couldn't think of any mod that edits them, but I guess it's possible...
It was made with Pets (v 1.26), and while I don't think that it would conflict with other versions, I wouldn't try it. AT ALL.

This was tested IN GAME and works. Again, just to make things clear, 1.26 ONLY! I guess you can try others, but I'm pretty new at this, so I'll just give you my advice... Please listen

Okay, problem found!
Turns out children can't take things from bookshelves! But if you have an adult that takes them out for them, they can read it! I'll try my best to fix...

Didn't know that existed! Thanks a lot!

I understand that they are similar mods, but due to the fact that Chaavik's mod edits the Bookstore XMLs and ITUNs, and mine edits the Reading and Bookshelf mods, they are not exactly the same.
It's still good to know, though, thank you so much!

My toddler couldn't read the book =S he had them in his inventory, i clicked on a book and chose "read" the action comes up in the que but disappears when he's about to do it. My CC is all up to date so i don't know what i did wrong.

It might be something with my game as well =S i don't want you to have to go through trouble when it might be a problem from my court. I'll double check everything again. I don't know if it worked for the others that downloaded it? The comments says thanks (and so do i cause it's a great idea, i've always wanted something like this! and that they're gonna try it but not if it worked or not.

No i have no idea =S i've gone through all CC i have and it's all up to date and nothing should be conflictiong with this as far as i know but i'm no real computer geek. I'm guessing it did work when you tried it kpooler? Maybe it's made for a later patch or?

I actually designed this to be with Book of Talent, maybe I should update it further to explain it only works with that... I'll ask a really good modder for advice so I can get it further working Sorry everyone!

I think I found the problem! It's because the game didn't come with animations for Toddlers to read... And since I have NO CLUE how to do that, I guess it's only compatible with Book of Talent. I'm REALLY sorry, again, should have seen this coming!

Lol no problem atleast you made a mod. I'm not so confident i could do that. And you had a very good idea for this mod too. So if we get book of talent, this mod will work or?
