Non-Critical Update - Version 2 of the mod has been updated for better compatibility with the March 26 game patch. There are two new book states called "copiedBook_Original" and "copiedBook_Copy". Updating the mod if you have an old version isn't critical as there doesn't appear to be any way (yet) to actually make a copy of a book. Perhaps that's in an upcoming patch or the EP....

Be sure to remove the old version of the mod if you update!

Description

This mod for The Sims 4 will make a sim keep a copy of a book after the book is published. Self-written books in the sim's inventory which have already been submitted to a publisher or the literary digest cannot be republished and will be grayed out.

Installation Instructions

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod may cause conflicts with other mods which change the book publishing actions. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly.

This mod requires The Sims 4 to be patched to at least version 1.0.732.20 (October 1, 2014).
Version 2 of the mod is for games patched to version 1.5.139.1210 (March 26, 2015) or later.

Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.
