Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here Ye, Here Ye... I made this default replacement for the maxis newspaper. You may only have one newspaper replacement installed at a time. Just drop in your downloads folder! It looks much better in game than it appears in the pictures. It has an aged state as well. I hope you like it.

All my current neighborhoods are modern, but I can see this coming in very handy if I decide to do a historical/magical one. Cool idea. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! It looks very nice in game... just a question though I lost the compost option on this newspaper, just wondering if download could have affected this (I wouldn't have thought so but just wondering)

Thanks!

I also noticed for my extremely poor sims that can't afford a computer, they can't job hunt with this paper either. The option is still there, but my sim just looks through it and then sets it on a table.

I had tested it out in game and didn't have this problem. I will look into though.

the same thing happened to me with the find a job option: there's the option but then it won't search waiting for the fix

Same remark here. My medieval sims don't have computers, and can't find a job in the newspaper.
The paper does look very good.
