The V2 version of this mod updates the Maid files for the 1.15, 1.16 and 1.17 patches. The maid functionality is the same as described below. The mailman portion of the mod is discontinued since the mailman functions fine in the vanilla game now. The V2 mod uses these files:
AwayAction_TidyUp_AFADAC48_00000000_00000000000124E0.xml
ServiceNpc_Maid_9CC21262_00000000_0000000000003E33.xml

This mod eliminates the 'fake actions' from the Maid and Mailman where they don't actually show up but the message is received that the mail was delivered, house was cleaned, or whatever. The maid and mailman will show up always when using this mod; if your sims are not home, they wait until someone is home.

Mailman: The mailman's working hours are set from 8am to 10am, so they are required to show up early in the morning. The bills are almost always delivered shortly after 8 on Tuesday in my current game, but the mailcarrier sometimes skips this day and appears with the bills on Wednesday. The mailcarrier is not required to show up or walk past your house every day, but they should show up every day if they have stuff to deliver.

The mailman is enabled 7 days a week, if all your sims are at work early in the morning from Monday through Saturday so no one is ever home, the mailcarrier will deliver the bills on Sunday (last day of the week).

Maid: The maid's working hours are lenghtened until late at night, so the one-shot maid will function similar to the Pizza Delivery; when you call on the phone at 12 noon or 4pm or 9 in the evening or 2am (or whenever) the maid will arrive around 10 minutes afterwards; there is no message that the maid will arrive tomorrow morning. At approximately 4am in the middle of the night is too late to call; they will then wait for the morning and appear shortly after 7am.

The permanent maid will arrive shortly after 7am every day, 7 days a week are also enabled on the maids. I have set this so early so that the maid can arrive at the home before everyone goes to work or school, in most cases. If no one is home at 7am, the maid will appear shortly after someone arrives back home and the lot is active, regardless of whether this is at 12 noon or 4pm or 9 in the evening.

Unzip the file and use the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.

Mod uses these XML files:
AwayAction_TidyUp_AFADAC48_00000000_00000000000124E0.xml
mailman_situation_FBC3AEEB_00000000_0000000000003F3D.xml
ServiceNpc_Maid_9CC21262_00000000_0000000000003E33.xml
ServiceNpc_Mailman_9CC21262_00000000_0000000000003E34.xml
