by scumbumbo Posted 4th May 2015 at 5:06 AM - Updated 21st Feb 2019 at 11:20 PM by scumbumbo : Updated for February 21, 2019 game patch
72 Comments / replies (Who?) - 11 Feedback Posts, 11 Thanks Posts
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.

Hello there, I'm really grateful for this mod. Though would there be a more efficient way of the doctors doing their jobs in the hospital? They are in there but they always just use the computer or the analysis machine..

I haven't encountered this issue yet (as I have no Doctor sims yet), but thank you in advance from the future Dr. <Insert Sim Name> for making his residency less problematic.

Is there any way to make diagnosing patients quicker/easier, or to stop people leaving? It takes so long to get a proper diagnosis that all the patients keep leaving and I'm only able to treat 3-4 people (if I'm lucky!) in a 15-17hr shift! (I use the cheat for a 15hr shift)

Thanks for this mod

Hmm, I was under the impression this mod was no longer needed for the game as EA had fixed this, so haven't looked into updating it. Perhaps that is not the case, in which case it is probably sorely in need for a fix. Let me take a look at the code and see what it looks like.

Yeah, EA had definitely not fixed this, looks like the only change they've made over the years for it is to update the outfit generator - so doctor's won't wear necklaces, gloves or face paint. Which is probably a good change, particularly the face paint!

I'll get this updated and posted, but in the meantime, yes it should still work perfectly well with Seasons.

Would be nice, wouldn't it?

That kind of goes beyond what this mod is intended for, if I did something like that it would be a new mod. Won't be happening any time soon though as my modding time is mostly full for the foreseeable future working on stuff to make other modder's lives easier.
