Faster Reading++

I feel as though they are treating the characters as idiots. I know that if my life depended on discovering how to make a double dutch dove tail join by reading a carpentry book it would take me less than a week to do it. This mod was made with Multiplayer in mind where you are always in real time.

Effectively transforms skill books into skill magazines.
Each book only takes around one fifth the time to read.
Multipliers from fast and slow reading traits still apply.

Works with Multiplayer

Mod title on Steam says "Mod Template," instead of "Faster Reading++" (or +++ ? Anyway, incorrect title)

Now updated. This particular mod updates \media\lua\client\TimedActions\ISReadABook.lua. I would rather make many little mods than one great big mod. The way it does the "Math" is to change the 1 minute it takes to read a page and turn it to 0.2. Any othe rmod that uses this file will break this mod as mods in this game are basically overides not merges.

My mods are rather old at this point which I apologize for. I need to update both this and Starting Points++ which the Devs shut down probably for becoming non compatible

@Always Neutral

Yes I found that anything that modifies anything that a mod intends to change completely messes up the mod, In short, only have 1 mod that affects things running at at time, due to unforseen compatibilities with other mods of the same nature.

it still feels really slow. do book renaming mods affect the mod? like, a conflict of overrides or something? maybe it's supposed to be that slow but it's still vexatiously long.

You realize unless you are playing on realtime the default timescale is set to 24 times (1 hour in game=1 day) faster? Those 3 seconds IRL are 72 seconds in game. Unless you are playing at a different time scale (at least 6 hours/day which is 4 times faster) then that would make sense.

This change works in conjunction with that perk.

@DrunkenTee 3 seconds = 220 pages read at 3 sec per page = 660 seconds = 11 real minutes. However unless you have a trait or something for reading, it's more like 7 seconds per page which equate to 1540 seconds = 25 real mins of idle time. With a variety of players reading and AFK = servers where people can't sleep. Faster reading is nice.
