View Full Version : Removing Maxis Job Wants, LTW and regular
4th May 2008, 12:46 AM
I'm about to start a medieval hood and I won't be letting any of my sims get maxis jobs. However, one of my favorite parts of the game is sending a sim down a path in life toward achieving their Life Time Want. Usually this means getting them a job in a particular career. See the problem? I've taken a quick look around and didn't find a mod that removes all the career LTWs from being able to be chosen. I did find one that did the opposite by enabling them for all aspirations. I downloaded it and opened it up to see if I could make any sense of it, but I'm a real noob with BHAVs so it might as well have been written in gibberish for all the sense it made to me. If someone could explain to me how to disable them, that'd be sweet. Or if someone else has done this and I missed it, a link would be cool too. (though I prefer making my own and learning, but less work is always a plus too)

The fastest (and simplest) way is to set all check conditions of every LTW test BHAV to "FALSE", so that not a single LTW will come out TRUE. You will find them all in Group 0x7F739728, if my notes are correct.

That totally worked! I've had it running for a while now and it works beautifully, I have a TON of sims aspiring to have gobs of businesses and friends, but that ok I guess. The next problem that I would like to fix is make all the 'Want a Job in the __ Career" regular wants quit showing up. Since I never plan to let the get jobs, I'd like those Want spaces back. Anyone know how to prevent those Wants from popping up?

Filter the resources of the "objects.package" you are working with by group "0x7F739728". Here you will find all the individual wants. Locate instances
- 0x0000111C "CT - Test - Enter Career Exclusive"
- 0x00001061 "CT - Test - Enter Career Track"
Change both as needed. That should do it. You might want to check this want group for modifications of further individual wants that don't match your setup.
