Set Community Lot Book Type

Are you tired of placing "The Book Corral" just to get skill books in your library? You want to devote a section of your library to the little ones, but the "Classicly Tasteful Literature Shelving" won't match?

Fear no more! This mod will add a new interaction ("Set Community Lot Book Type") to all community lot bookshelves. With this, you will be able to change the type of books in the bookshelf.

You can set the book type to any of these:
  • General
  • Children
  • Skill
  • Comics
  • Career… - fill the bookshelf with career specific books
  • Genre… - fill the bookshelf with books of a specific genre
  • Time & Travel… - fill the bookshelf with books from the future, past, China, Egypt, or France

Changelog:
2011.9.27: Release.
2011.2.10: Added 3 new options, written books are now added to the bookshelves. Added Swedish and German translations.
2012.11.4: Added Fortune Teller career books.
2013.2.19: Added support for patch 1.50 and comic bookstores.

Notes:
You won't see this interaction in Live Mode. It is restricted to Build/Buy Mode, so you'll need to Ctrl+Shift click on the bookshelf. The interaction is translated to English, Spanish, Mexican Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Portuguese, Swedish, and German. If you want to help me translate, feel free to PM me.

Unfortunately, bookshelves won't retain their settings if shared or added to the Lot Bin.

This is a scripting mod. It doesn't replace anything and won't conflict with other mods. It was compiled against patch version 1.50, but works with the 1.55 and 1.57 patch version.

Additional Credits:
EA, S3PE and S3OC creators and developers, and Twallan.

AnnaIME and Blue Horse for their Swedish and German translations, respectively.

If I make, say, a children's library, will it still only have kids books in someone else's game if I put it on the exchange?

Thanks!

As far as I'm aware, this mod works fine with patch 1.67. I've been using it with that patch for the last couple of years and haven't noticed any ill effects.

Works well with patch 1.69. Thanks for this mod! It drove me crazy how libraries didn't always come equipped with skill bookshelves.

This will be super helpful in combination with the "MOAR Interactions" mod, to get inactives to skill up autonomously! Thanks for creating it and sharing your talent with us.
