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These mods are outdated and I won't be remaking them because of the issue which arises if one of the mods is used for awhile and then removed, the skill levels on sims adjust back to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

These don't need updating, they work fine with the current patch level. You are unzipping the file and using the .package file, yes?

Loved this while I had it, but it made my game crash. Took me awhile to figure out if it was this because I desperately wanted to keep this mod, but for some reason it was definitely this one. I seem to be the only one who's had this problem so please don't feel the need to avoid this download just because of this happening to me! But if it could be fixed I would just love to use it again.

This mod is fine with the December 16th patch. There has been alteration in vanilla game to the speed on Child skills, making the higher levels go a bit faster; these are the exact same numbers which I have already modded, so the effect with my mods is that the child skills go only 1.5 or 3 times faster instead of the 2x or 4x.

Otherwise the skilling in my mods for teens, adults and others is exactly the same as before this patch. I don't see that issue with the out of synch UI showing level 1 as opposed to level 4 (for example) when playing now myself, so I think that must be caused by something else.
