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These mods are outdated and I won't be remaking them because of the issue which arises if one of the mods is used for awhile and then removed, the skill levels on sims adjust back to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.

I would hope that you are the only one, lol. How much slower should they be compared to vanilla game? 50% slower or twice as slow or?

You need to choose one or the other of the two files, they are variations of the same mod.

For me, it does not seem to work with both the x2 and x4 versions, I know where to place the mod (Have the TS4 Mod Manager and also ticked the check box in the main game to enable script mods), and also updated the game to the Swimming Pools Update. Am I missing something?

The check mark for Script Mods is irrelevant, this is an XML mod which goes unzipped, as a .package file, in the Mods folder. By this I mean the "real" mods folder which is there in The Sims 4 folder. I don't use the Mod Manager program so I don't know how it is handling files, but this is the first thing you should look at, IMO.
