It's a good habit to always delete the 'scriptCache.package' file when you install or replace a scripted mod.

Updates

  • JunJayMdM.StudySkillsOnline V37

    • November 19th, 2014
      • Fixed potential bug where the interaction was getting canceled on Laptops if started from the inventory

Sometimes, when updating from an older version, this mod settings might get corrupted and reset when starting the game. Therefore, I recommend always writing down the settings you're interested in, so if a reset happens you can set them again.


Game Version : 1.63 - 1.67

It might work on previous Patch Levels too, but it's only been tested and proved working on 1.63 up to 1.67, so use it at your own risk.

Conflicts

This mod overrides the following EA Interactions on Tablets :
  • PickUpTabletForAudio
  • ListenToAudioProgram
If you have the NRaas OnceRead Tablet module installed, those interactions will be overriden by it instead, so it will not conflict with mine and it's completely safe to use.
Any other mod that overrides those interactions might not work or cause problems. Aside from that, this mod will hardly ever conflict with another one. The worst it can happen is that it won't work, if you have a Core mod installed that changes the resources used by my mod. As far as I know, no such mod exists.

Known Issues and Quirks

None

Description

This mod simply adds a "Study Skills Online" menu to all computers, smartphones and tablets, where you can choose skills for your sims to learn. Once a skill has been chosen, your sim will start studying it.

  • If you have the Online Center mod installed, you will find the 'Study Skills Online...' menu button under the 'Online Center...' path.
  • If you purchased the MultiTab 6000 from EA Store, you can choose whether to have Sims study skills by using it classically or with the Tabcast.
    • The 'Listen to Tabcast' interaction has been moved inside the 'Study Skills Online' menu. If you have the NRaas OnceRead Tablet module installed, my 'Listen to Tabcast' interaction will be disabled, so you will still have it outside the menu, plus the classic Study Skills interaction inside. It's also important to note that the NRaas interaction is not affected by Autonomy Settings, while mine is, so I strongly suggest ro remove that module to avoid confusion, unless you really need it, in which case just keep an eye open
  • If you purchased Lady Ravendancer Goth's Book o' Spells from EA Store, the Spell Casting skill will be available under 'Choose Hidden Skill...' (this requires 'Hidden Skills' enabled in 'Study Skills Online Settings').
  • If you purchased Fit as a Fiddle Violin from EA Store, the Violin skill will be available under 'Choose Skill...'.
  • If you purchased Surf’s Up Sun & Fun Wave Station from EA Store, the Surfing skill will be available under 'Choose Hidden Skill...' (this requires 'Hidden Skills' enabled in 'Study Skills Online Settings').

Here's a list with all the skills available :



Settings

IMPORTANT NOTES : Settings are saved separately for each save game and each world. This means that when your sims travel, settings will be different. You can still change them but remember that they will always be different from the ones you set in the Home World.
    • You can find "Settings" under the "Study Skills Online..." menu, or when clicking on the Terrain (if enabled) under the "JunJayMdM" menu.
    • Every change you make to these values will be permanent when you save the game.
    • You will find more details about these values, when selecting the option ingame.
Click the button below to see the specifics for each option.





Translation

- The skill names are directly taken from the game, so they're completely localized for all languages (except some Hidden Skills, they can't be translated).

- Settings are not available for translation. Why? Because they can be compared to the explanations here on the thread and it's easier for me to provide help for them.

If you feel like translating the strings, check in the table below if a specific language "Needs Update", then read the instructions.





Notes

  • You don't need to have EPs installed, it will work fine with the Base Game only, as long as your game is patched up to date.
  • Some skills require purchasing from The Sims 3 Store in order to appear. Check the 'Description' section to see which ones.
  • No matter how much it cries, no matter how much it begs. Never, never feed it after midnight!
  • If you find bugs in this mod, call the exterminator or simply report them to me
