Annoyed that it takes all day to write a song when it only takes two hours to write an entire book; with this mod it now only takes about two sim hours to write a song on any instrument or the DJ booth.

It will now take about 4 hours or less depending on your sims skill to write a song. Now includes writing lyrics.

Update Nov 26
Missed changing some values in the BASE GAME mod, please redownload and replace the old mod.

Updated all mods for 1.36, please redownload and replace the old mods.

Mod is broken up into separate files based on expansion. To use download all the packages for the game/expansions you have installed:
  • BASE GAME will speed up piano, guitar, and violin songwriting.
  • DJ BOOTH will speed up the DJ Booth from the Get Together expansion
  • KEYBOARD will speed up the portable keyboard from the City Living expansion
  • LYRICS will speed up writing lyrics using the microphone, guitar, piano and portable keyboard, requires City Living
  • PIPE ORGAN will speed up the Pipe Organ from the Vampires expansion

I'm pretty sure this mod is not working anymore. My sim's guitar skill is lvl 9 and she's taking way more than 4 sims hours to write a song.

It drives me crazy the time it takes. Some hit songs were written in about 20 minutes!

I tested these. Seems to be working fine with the pre seasons patch. Songs in less than 4 hours and no LEs from MCCC.

My game is fully patched. It still takes my sims a couple days to write a song, even with this installed.

mine isn't working either. game is fully patched. when i downloaded this mod it had the opposite effect. now instead of being slow, no progress is made at all. my sim stayed up for a full day and the progress didnt change at all.
