I’m sure it’s obvious how much I love Zerbu’s Ultimate Careers mod! This mod means you can send sims to work in open lots instead of having them disappear into a rabbithole, actually seeing them at work and controlling what they do! Sims will be pushed to use objects that are suitable for their specific career. I love this mod so much, I even built my world, Crumpleton, specifically with it in mind. So you will find lots of pre-built workplaces there.
Usually, sims will gain career performance while using appropriate objects during work hours. They also lose career performance when not using the objects. Which makes sense because sims should lose performance when not doing their job, right? Only, I like to make up my own little jobs for my sims to do while working. So, my politician might need to throw a fund-raising event at the park, or my reporter might need to deliver newspapers to the kiosks around town.
Zerbu provided tuning files that let us mod the mod! So (with his help) I tuned the mod so that sims no longer lose work performance when not using the listed objects, or when leaving the work lot. This allows me to send my sims off on whatever little mission I dream up, without fear of them getting fired! It also means that we can use any additional objects we might come across that are not listed with the current mod.
After I mentioned my tuning file, people started asking about it. I asked Zerbu if I could share it and he very kindly agreed! ^_^
You DO need the original Ultimate Careers mod installed. Then drop my package file into the mods/packages folder too.
