Updated February 21, 2019 - Updated to add a location-based Sim filter which will be required by the next game pack. Not sure what that will be since the pack isn't released yet - likely just something to keep "Strange" Sims from becoming doctors.

This update REQUIRES your game to be updated with the latest game patch 1.50.67 (February 21, 2019).

As always, if you do update the mod be sure to remove the old version!

Description

I got tired of my young doctor-in-training sim getting bad work performance because the only scored work actions available involved the need for a "real" doctor present, but they'd already left for the day to go play golf. And I have this vicious habit that when something annoys me enough, I either do something about it or ignore it completely and seethe. This time I did something.

EA was nice and had the forethought to ensure that, if there were no career doctor sims available at the hospital for you to play the doctor-in-training job levels, a "diagnoser" doctor would be made available. However, if that diagnoser left the lot for some reason, they weren't replaced.

This is a simple mod to add a "replace" action which occurs if the original diagnostician leaves (or dies slipping in one of those puddles the analysis machine leaves behind) so you can get on with your job if you absolutely must transfer a patient case or otherwise talk to the lazy bum.

Installation Instructions

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod requires the Get To Work EP updated with the latest game patch (December 20, 2018 - version 1.48.94)

The bug will likely get fixed by EA one day at which point the mod can be removed. (Hey, we can dream, right?)

Resource Overrides

In the event of a conflicting mod, this package modifies only the situationJob_CareerDoctor_NPC_Doctor_diagnoser (S4_9C07855F_00000003_000000000001C61C) XML resource.

Thank you! In real life there is always a doctor on call. If only Maxis planned with common sense instead of trying to make a "game" of it. Again thank you.

Cool!!!

Now all I need to find would be one that keeps my cop at work longer or at least, always on duty, even on the home lot.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Having the only doctor on the lot trot off at 9 am sharp was utterly breaking to my sims efforts to advance in their career.

That's great. If it was the same in everybody else's game, this mod wouldn't be needed. I for one am glad for it. There's a doctor in my game too and half the time he leaves the lot and I can't finish the tasks that require him. So, thank you for the mod.

Thanks for this. Just yesterday I was playing and my sim (who works at the hospital) kept getting the goal to transfer patient case. I always had problems doing that because there was never a doctor around.

You! Awesomeness! Thank you! I was so annoyed by the fact how much harder it was to get a perfect score in the Doctor career than in the other two.

Thank so much. Now all I need is for someone to do a mod that reduces the number of sick people arriving at the hospital during my sims shift. It is impossible to keep up with all of them and do the necessary tasks as well.

Thank you so much! I can't even count the times I try to have my sims get promotions (only to see the doctor) leaving, catching myself thinking "what are you thinking you crazy doctor get back here and do your job!" Now they stay .
