DESCRIPTION:

The mods, Upgrade Times, alter the amount of time spent upgrading an object based on the level of difficulty. The level of difficulty is based on the type of upgrade being done to an object. Sims will still spend almost an equal amount of time upgrading the object whether the Sims has the Handiness trait or not.

*The Tinker option on these objects is also affected by the amount of time used to tinker/upgrade an object.*

You need to have your Sim tinker an object first before you can get any upgrade options available on that particular object you want to upgrade. This is by EA design.

The upgrades affect the following objects:

Stoves (all)
Sinks (all)
Tubs (all)
Showers (all)
Toilets (all)
Food Replicator
Trash Compactor
Nectar making machine *Available with World Adventures*
Fortune Cookie machine *Available with World Adventures*
TVs (all)
Doorbell
Stereos (all including the wiring throughout the house option)
Teleporter
Water Sprinkler
Microwave (maybe - Haven't tested this)


Upgrade Times (3 Flavors):

Easy - At least 1 to 4-6 hours total time
Medium - At least 2 to 6-8 hours total time
Hard - At least 4 to 8-10 hours total time

CAUTION:

Use only ONE flavor, not all of them.

NOTE:

Medium is twice as short as the default Maxis/EA times for upgrading the objects. Hard is twice as long as the default Maxis/EA times for upgrading the objects.

SPECIAL NOTE:

If I made a 4th flavor to make it harder than the Hard flavor, I will simply drain my own Sim's life away while their children grow up and have their own families before my Sim will finally finish upgrading an object. So do not ask for a "Pescado-style" version.

INSTALL:

For XP users, install in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures\Mods\Packages

You must have the framework set up to force Sims 3 to recognize and use the mods. Or use Delphy's TS3 Monkey Install Helper to install the mod the easy way.

For Vista and Windows 7 players, install the mod accordingly in the location you keep your mods in.

I don't use either Vista or Windows 7 and can't help you with the install issues. Please look on other Sims 3 forums for instructions installing the mods.

VERSION:

Available for World Adventures only at this time. You must have your game patched up to 2.3.x for World Adventures.

** These pictures are just a few of what objects you can upgrade.**

So did I! I didn't realize how much needed this is for my Sims until someone made a request via PM at MTS.
