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

It kinda works for me with GTW installed and all the latest updates. The maid does show up and clean house. I haven't noticed a mailman yet, though. At least it works for the maid...i get tired of paying the fees without seeing anything being done. lol

This mod is updated to V2 for the 1.15, 1.16, and 1.17 patches. The Maid portion is included in the new mod, and the mailman portion of the original mod is discontinued.

I'm using the Maid only v. 2 and the maid still doesn't show up to my house. I only get the message that there was nothing to be done. I only have the Sims 4 Deluxe, Patio Stuff, Outdoor Retreat, and the latest June, 2016 patch.

The maid works fine for me, both the one-shot maid and the maid I hire permanently; they both show up at the house fine. I tested both of them right now.

It doesn't cause a crash, but it disables the bug fixes for maids, such as the vanishing Tea Magic, and causes a few issues with other service Sims. So it does need an update.

Firstly, many thanks for this - a must-have mod IMHO since it fixes the (still outstanding) bugs in core game!

Second, is there any way at all this mod can be modified so that the maid (I use permanent recurring) actually goes through the doors that are locked for everyone except household members?

Again, many thanks!

.

It worked for many years without needing an update, but now it needs one. Hopefully, another modder will swoop in and update this mod. Until then, do not use in your game unless you want to risk corrupting your save files.
