Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Compatible with 1.67


Since some people requested it, here it is. This script mod adds an option to all bookshelves to put away all books in sim's inventory.



This is NOT a core mod so it shouldn't conflict with other mods.


CHANGELOG
01/19/2010: Fixed a bug where the new interaction wouldn't show up for newly bought bookshelves. BIG thanks to Twallan
09/07/2012: Added a check to prevent medical journals from being put away.

I've been using this mod for several weeks now and I think it's a huge time saver. I noticed last night, however, that it has a problem with sheet music purchased from the book store. It disappears from my Sim's inventory but it never makes it into the bookcase. First time, I thought it was a fluke, but I was able to repeat the error several times. Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me?

It's a bug but not related to this mod.

For some reason none of your mods are working ever since I updated to Generations. 8(
(Yes, I updated them as well.) The interactions just don't appear.

Are you using the new framework setup under Documents? If not, that's why

Yes. If you still can't get it to work then ask in the help section. They will be able to help you better than me.

Ok, I'll look there. Thanks anyway.

Edit: LOL, nevermind, for some reason it's working now. This game is so retarded.

Looks good. It's quite annoying to put several books just one by one back in the case, while it should be possible to do this with one click.
One question: is this multilingual? Because i use a Dutch version of TS3 and all the expansions. It would be a bit weird to see an other language in the common interactions. Not that i have problems with English, because most other games i play are just in English (like tes III:morrowind for example) But since my copy of TS3 is in Dutch it would look a bit strange.

Hello! I love this mod, thanks!
But I think I have a bug to report. I`ve noticed that, when your sim is a doctor, he/she has the medical journal in his/her inventory. When using ``put away all books``, the medical journal will be put away in the bookshelf, but it will also remain in his/her inventory (meaning, there`s now two journals, but the game`s system allows only one to exist). You can`t get the journal from the bookshelf without ``taking all`` books from it, and you can`t read the journal in your inventory if it was put away in the shelf.
Also, it updates itself on a day-to-day basis (volume 41 today, volume 42 or higher tomorrow, etc...). But when there`s one in the bookshelf and one in your inventory, you wont be able to:
1- read the journal if it`s in the shelf;
2- OR, to read it from your inventory, you`ll either have to ``take all`` books from the shelf, or you`ll have to update its volume first (by going to work the next day and returning home), which means the one in the shelf will not follow the update of the one in your inventory.
If you use ``take all`` (books) from the shelf, the journal will reset to just being one book, and it will be at its current volume... but it`s a hassle sometimes, specially if you have tons of books to put away (you have to put them away one by one to prevent this bug with the medical journal).
As far as I know, only the medical journal is an issue. Maybe there are other career/profession tracks with their specific journals, which could also have this bug.
I think a perfect fix for this mod would be to disallow it to handle the medical journal and any other books/journals it shouldn`t ``put away``.

I hope this helps your future updates and/or fixes for this mod.
Thanks, treeag.

PS: I actually never tested putting the medical journal away without this mod... but anyways, there`s the info. If the bug is related to the mod, I hope I helped. Cheers!

No it hasn't, I kind of forgot about it, sorry. Haven't got time to play so I haven't tested this with 1.34 but it should work fine. Apart from the medical journal thing.

Is this even broken on 1.42? I think it doesn't need any update.

I'm currently having some major issues in the game as result of one or more of NRaas mods. Once those have been sorted out I'll check and see if Put Away All Books/Scraps/Harvestables are working at their current version.
