Fast Skills or Slower Skills (outdated and discontinued)

Staff update: Update here for 1.13.106.1010

These mods are outdated and I won't be remaking them because of the issue which arises if one of the mods is used for awhile and then removed, the skill levels on sims adjust back to where they 'should' have been. This issue is described in the comments. On the current patch 1.16.61 and a large number of previous patch levels, these mods are completely unsafe and should not be used! For a fast skills mod I recommend using my Savant Trait mod: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=574360

A new Very Fast mod is added which goes much faster than the 4x. The aspect where skilling takes much longer from level 8 to 9 (for example) than level 2 to 3 is almost removed in this version; the skilling up at the higher levels is only an itsy-bit slower. Remove any other of these mods from the Mods folder when using a new one.

A Slower Skills mod is added which makes the skilling take twice as long as the vanilla game. Skill level one isn't altered. Obviously, don't use this mod at the same time as the other, but instead of.

These mods increase the speed of skilling on all child skills and Teen, YA, Adult and Elder skills. There are two flavors, a 2x speed and a 4x speed. (The 4x speed is faster, if this isn't obvious.) Use one or the other.

The skill level 1 isn't adjusted as it goes so fast in vanilla game that there isn't any need to go faster.

Mod uses these 3 files:
statistics.skill_03B33DDF_00000000_B03139C2717F3EB0.xml
545AC67A_006CA304_B03139C2717F3EB0.data
545AC67A_006CA304_4928BDE93C9E3CA0.data

Unzip and place the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.

Verified yes this is broken Skills all show 0 with a check and any learned skills despite the popups in game are not registered with the skills window once you log all skills are reset to 0 and start all over again.....

I'm sure as long as you credit Shimrod for his original mod I'm sure it will be fine! They'll honestly probably be happy that someone else did it for them anyway. I will happily test run the updated mod for you. I just desperately need this fix

Another that does not work. I tried them all and all it does is delete ALL of my skills to where my sims have NO skills at all.

I just installed all sims 4 expansions, game and stuff packs, which I bought yesterday. Prior to yesterday the mod seemed to work well, except for the no jealousy. Now with just this mod installed I can't increase the any of the skills of any of my sims past level 4, though the game says I maxed out the skills. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a way to fix this problem?

Since my last post, after I installed all these games my skill levels won't go above four with this set of mods installed, but the no jealousy is now working fine.

Awesome mod. But, you should put a warning in the description. All skills will be reset to "1" when the mod is removed. It affected every sim in all worlds in my game.
