UPDATE: The No More Newspaper Mod can now be found here

Well, first off this is one of my first Mods ever.
Into the Description. :D

I was sick of Sims getting free newspapers, when we have to pay for them, and the time that it was delivered was too late, considering the time the newspaper gets delivered in Australia. So I decided to change it all.You can consider this a service and that you are paying for both the newspaper, and the actual delivery.

This mod basically changes both, the time the Newspaper is delivered, and also, charges sims a small fee, because, In reality, you will -never- get free newspapers. Unless your homeless, and get them from the trash. :P

This file overrides the defaults set by Maxis
They are now as Follows:
  • The Newspaper now is delivered at 6AM rather than 9AM (INCLUDED ALL FILES)
  • It now Costs either $3, $5, $8 or the more expensive $10 (depending on what one you download.

Please Only Download 1 File otherwise bad, bad things will happen in your game. Or I shall hunt you down a smack you over the head with a ruler/rolled-up newspaper. It's your choice
