Default Pharmacy Career
i love this career the only issue i've had is the pharmacy branch. If you go higher up you end up not having any days off is there anyway it can be changed? i've been using cheats to create more vacation days. i also think the pay is a little too much, i wish it was like that in real life, i'm a pharmacy tech it would be nice to get a couple hundred dollars/ hour Thanks

I am also having an issue with the Pharmacy Career. My Sim is at level 6 and one of his Promotional Tasks is to achieve level 3 in the Handiness Skill. He is already at level 10, but the task requirement has not been met. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the career or if my Sim is glitched.

eta:
I had him quit his job and than had him take the job again. He is currently at level 5. I will report back and let you know if the issue is resolved. Thanks.

Hi, receiving errors with this mod after May 25th Patch. Hope it can be fixed as its a great mod!! I use all of your career mods but havent checked if military, education or freelance are impacted yet.
Whenever Sim leaves for work - they dont actually leave. Just stand on sidewalk. Career performance doesn't do anything either. Error appears at the start of work day and again at the end.
This is what is in the error log (this error is from end of day):

I was just going to post that I'm having the same issue. All of your custom career mods - Biology, Military, Education, and Self-Employed (all 3) - seem similarly affected. I'll also add that when they leave for work they don't actually leave and just stand on the sidewalk as korinalea said, AND their profile picture stays greyed out as if they are gone at work. You can still order them to do things around the house and take care of needs, but not much else. Going to Manage Worlds and then returning to the lot "fixes" it as the affected sim will no longer show have the greyed out profile, but then it also "removes" them from the job - when you look at the career panel it says they have no job.

I hope you're able to fix things as I really enjoy using your custom career mods. Thanks!

I am also getting this error currently for the Biology career. I have yet to see if the Military career is affected as he hasn't started his job yet.

Hi,
I loved using this career, but unfortunately since the last update, it no longer works, I loaded a lot where one sim had this career and suddenly she has no job. In the previous version she just stayed on the sidewalk although showing as gone to work. I know this must be hard work to produce and so I will not go on about it, I just thought I'd let you know and say thanks for sharing your great work.
cheers,

One of my mod update has reinitialized progression some time ago, it was a one time thing for improved compatibility. You can use careers.promote Biologie to cheat.

Hi Neia,
Thank you so much for your quick response, But I don't understand what you have instructed me to do? which mod update do I have to have installed for the biology career to work properly, and is this a cheat that you have to type in the cheat console
'in-game'. I am sorry for not understanding. I only had the education and biology careers installed and the problem happened with both those files loaded.
Thanks for your help anyway.

You should use the latest version of the careers, the ones that are from July, 19th. I made a change to all my careers in May or June that caused the game to consider them as new different careers than previously, so progression was reset and Sims lost the jobs. The cheat is indeed in-game in the cheat console, in case you don't want to do it again, if your Sims was at a high level, but you can join the career again and level normally if you want too.
