Can't Write Books

★★★★ Novice

My Sim has a level 10 for Writing but is not able to write anything other than a love email, an excuse note and practicing writing.  I do not get an option to write a book or anything else.

Found it!  Thank you so much, Phantomlover1717, for suggesting/sharing the 50/50 method.  While certainly tedious, it was a methodical way to isolate the problem.

Unfortunately, yes.  Pooh...any work around?

Re: Can't Write Books

Try taking out your mod folder, place it on your desktop. Test the game, if it works, try the 50/50 method to find the conflicting CC/Mod.

Sure!  I had a mod called "Tanja1986_No autonomous Computer 1.1" which appeared to be preventing all of the Sims in my household with a high enough writing level to actually write books.  After removing that mod, the option came back.  Not sure what other functionality might be missing by removing the mod, though.  Hope that helps.
