Originally, Sims read skill books or do research as long as they're in a good enough mood and they aren't interrupted (by the player or a special event). Mods from this pack add further conditions:
  • skilling – makes a Sim stop learning a skill from a book after they have reached 10 points of that skill. Additionally, it fixes a bug that makes Sims give up studying special books (body, charisma, etc.) from the Bookshelf of Education (an education career reward) too early because they think it's supposed to be a fun activity;
  • collegeResearch – makes a Sim stop doing college research after they have filled their class performance meter.
Note that these mods do not ever hide the college research interaction or book/bookcase skilling interactions.

If you have the pre-release package (simNopke-stopLearningFullSkill), delete it before you install these mods.
Do not use the skilling mod with Education Bookcase Fix – my mod addresses the same bug. Note that after removing Cyjon's mod you may experience jump bugs just like after installing it.
