Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A shiny new (okay, a dusty old) book that can teach your sim many skills to the max. The sim will not actually open and read the book though, I made it as a 'static' object. You just need to click on it and appropriate pie menus will show up.





It sits in hobbies/knowledge section and it costs 5 simoleons. I was considering to make it free but hey, knowledge DOES cost something (an arm and a leg sometimes, but I guess a couple of simoleons work just as fine )



Features :

-Skill >> Cooking, Mechanical, Charisma, Body, Logic, Creativity, Cleaning.

-Hidden Skill >> Dance, Painting, Pool, Meditate, Writing, Study.

-Badges >> Cosmetology, Sales, Flower Arranging, Toy Making, Robotery, Cash Register, Stocking, Gardening, Fishing, Pottery, Sewing.

-BV >> Gestures >> Mountain, Island, Far East.
-BV >> Massage >> Acupressure, Hot Stone, Deep Tissue.
-BV >> Dance >> Fire Dance, Hula Dance, Slap Dance.
-BV >> Misc >> Taichi, Teleport, Sea Chantey, Dragon Legend.

-Toddler >> Talk, Walk, Potty, Nursery Rhyme.

-Pets >> Come Here, Play Dead, Roll Over, Shake, Speak, Sit Up, Stay, Use Toilet.

-Hobbies >> Cuisine, Arts, Film & Literature, Sport, Games, Nature, Tinkering, Fitness, Science, Music.

-Misc Skill >> Parenting, Fire Safety, Anger Management, Lifelong Happiness, Physiology, Couples Counseling.

-AL >> Magic skill, breakdance.


For the pets function to work, you need "boolprop controlpets on".


All related wants should be satisfied.
Should be compatible with any game combination, but let me know if you have a problem.


Big thanks to toke for flipping the mesh for me It's been bugging me for a while now.
