The amount of time Sims take to finish writing books and songs is annoying. Not only that, but the payout for all of that time spent making something was so poor! A lot of Sims have busy lives and can't spend so much of their limited lifespans trying to write books and songs!

This mod ensures that that is no longer an issue. A freelancer writer Sim will thrive in that they can write multiple books in a day, and any Sim that decides to take on writing or songwriting as a hobby can make more in royalties by having more to sell. Not only these, but your Sim will have more time to do other things that need to be done -- like sleeping!

The time Sims take to complete things like songs and books operates on a skill curve and is influenced by other things like the Fast Internet lot trait, so there's no guarantee on exactly how long your particular Sim will take to finish their creations. However, no matter the skill curve, QuickWrite makes the process speedier.

I have separated the downloads into different .rar files, so you'll be able to choose whichever you want to implement in your game. For the QuickSongs portion, I highly recommend installation your MIKYA_quicksongs base file, as this will help the expansion pack files work if you want to implement those. The DJ Booth requires the Get Together expansion and the Pipe Organ requires the Vampires pack. All of the base game instruments are rolled into one package, and the books are another separate download.

Fast, Faster, Fastest

FAST: The original versions of this mod, MIKYA_quickbooks and MIKYA_quicksongs variants, cut the writing speed from the original game by more than 1/2 for books and more than 3/4 for songs, yielding similar results time-wise for both.
FASTER: The Supersim versions of each download cut the crafting speed from the original mod in half.
FASTEST: The Sonic Sim versions of each download cut the crafting speed from the original mod by 75%.

This is a multi-part download:


MIKYA_quickbooks.package (writing books), MIKYA_quickbooks supersim.package and MIKYA_quickbooks sonicsim.package are for the base game.

MIKYA_quicksongs base.package (writing songs), MIKYA_quicksongs base supersim.package, and MIKYA_quicksongs base sonicsim.package are for the base game. This variant of QuickSongs is required if you wish to download any of the other QuickSongs files (DJ, PipeOrgan).

MIKYA_quicksongs DJ.package (writing songs), MIKYA_quicksongs DJ supersim.package, and MIKYA_quicksongs sonicsim.package are for the DJ booth in the Get Together expansion.

MIKYA_quicksongs PipeOrgan.package (writing songs), MIKYA_quicksongs PipeOrgan supersim.package and MIKYA_quicksongs PipeOrgan sonicsim.package are for the Pipe Organ in the Vampires pack.

Make sure to only have ONE speed for all QuickSongs files, and ONE speed for your QuickBooks file.
Example: someone who wants the sonic sim speed for songs would download MIKYA_quicksongs base sonicsim.rar, MIKYA_quicksongs DJ sonicsim.rar, and MIKYA_quicksongs PipeOrgan sonicsim.rar (as applicable with expansions).
The person who wants the regular speed of QuickBooks would only download MIKYA_quickbooks.rar.

The three downloads have all of the files at the selected speed.

Once you’ve downloaded the appropriate files for your chosen speed, unzip each .rar file, place the .package files into your Sims 4 Mods folder, and enjoy!
