Does it raise one skill point when you click on the book, or max it? (or something like that! )

I think it means, your sims can study any skill from the book.

This may be a stupid question... But does this work with University installed as well?

Either way, this is a great tool for the game, and thanks very much!!

Sounds great Thank You, where do you put this file in downloads and create a folder named Global or is there a specified already global file?

#15 Old 27th May 2005 at 11:09 PM
I think it means that it effects all books.

Oooops, wait, you both right, blame it to me for I didnt place and instruction there. Place it in your my documents\...\downloads folder if you dont have it create it About compatibility, I think it should work for both original and EP version, for I have an EP installed.

I've searched all my buyable items and I can't find this book anywhere. Can you tell me where it is located?

WHY DO SIMS NEVER EXPERIENCE A MID-LIFE CRISIS?

Hi, Ancient Sim, this is not a buyable item, to be able to use this you must instruct your sim to grab a book from a bookcase or bookshelf, then cancel that action then your sim will drop that book on the floor, then click on that book and you will see these options.

But my style is I'll ask my sim to read a book from a bookcase then while my sim is reading a book I will click on the book that s/he is reading or holding then choose Study ... then cancel the first action, so that my sim will perform studying without dropping of book.

Thanks very much . . . some Sims can't afford all the equipment to learn skills or maybe don't have the space in their home, so hopefully this will help a lot. Thanks again.
