Update

The mod should be compatible with the cats&dogs patch, I have checked the files and tested in game.
If you still run into any problems (e.g. missing texts, because I could not test all assigments), please let me know in the comments.

Hello Simmers!

This is the latest mod of my collection of "Work from Home" mods (previous careers are: Business, Athlete, Painter, Writer)

This mod enables the "work from home" option for the culinary career. Working from home has the same mechanism that came with City Living careers. You will get a notification 1 hour before work where you can choose from sending your sim to work, working from home or taking PTO. Then you get two assignments if you choose the "work from home" option. A few examples of these assignments are below.

Culinary (before choosing a branch)
  • improve bartending and cooking skills
  • talk about cooking/drink making
  • wash dishes
  • make drinks
  • have drinks at bar/lounge
  • eat food at the spice festival/compete spicy contest
  • talk to chefs
  • earn silver on a dinner party

Chef
  • cook meals (vegetarian, group, gourmet)
  • eat food in different districts
  • improve baking skill and bake something (if you have the Get To Work EP)
  • eat, learn, cook and take photo of experimental meal (if you have the Dine Out GP)
  • write cookbook

Bartender
  • make drinks
  • get to know sims in different districts
  • write a bar guide
  • be funny with sims
  • drink at a lounge/bar

Your sim will get the same amount of money they would get by working a whole workday in the traditional way. One assignment grants half the daily wage since you get two assignments every day.

The levels, skill requirements, work days and wages per hour (if you choose to send your sim to work) remain the same as they were without any mods.

I hope you will like it!

This mod is great! However, after the latest update, there is missing text again.

I haven't tested all of these work from home careers since the pets patch but I can say that this one seems to be broken. When it was an hour before time to go to work nothing happened and then at time to go to work still nothing happened and then I looked at my sim's career panel and it now said work in 1 day rather than him getting any phone call OR going to work as if the mod was not there.

I really love these work from home mods and have no idea how to go about fixing it myself so an update would be much appreciated.

Are you using other mods? I am playing with this mod in my game now and it worked fine- the call popped up an hour before work, I choose to stay home and my Sim stayed home from work as expected and can complete the tasks. My other Sim got the call for Entertainer career and went to work after choosing to go. I don't believe these mods are broken...

I've been playing with this mod and all my other mods just fine before the patch and the only "new" mods I have since the patch are just updates to mods I already had. I would think that means it is the patch that is making the mod not function, but I'll do some more testing.

EDIT
Nevermind I figured out what happened the mod is not broken I'm just unobservant about notifications and didn't notice he got promoted instead of a call coming in. Sorry for the confusion. Gosh I feel dumb.
