Your Hired Help! Your Way. You're In Control!

This mod adds several additional NPC's as full time residents to households just like a Butler and is broken up into various modules if you only want some of the features. The additional NPC's at this time are the Maid, Nanny, Gardener; the Butler has some additional features as well. If you want the servant to leave, you fire/them dismiss them/ask to hangout as normal per the interaction menu. I also recommend the Free Services Trait because if the NPC hangs out for a while your bill may be high when they are done.

If you want the whole package, simply put the RhamesHiredHelpMod package in your mod folder

Butler - there are two packages for the Butler: ButlerNoUniform and ButlerTraitAdjust. The first removes the Butler Situation outfit and simply lets you use the standard 7x5 outfits for the NPC that you might want to design. The second controls how the Butler NPC is generated and "blocks" the following traits from being randomly selected for the Butler: Mean, Hates Children, Evil, Insane, Kleptomaniac, Hot headed, Slob, Geek, Lazy, Glutton, Squeamish, Gloomy and Jealous. It also provides SpeedCleaner, Mentor and SuperGreenThumb to help the Butler in their various duties. If you want both features, you can use ButlerFull package otherwise just use the Butler package that you want (uniform or traits.)

Gardener - there are three packages for the Gardner: GardenerNoUniform, GardenerTraitAdjust and GardenerFullTime. The first removes the Gardener Situation outfit and simply lets you use the standard 7x5 outfits for the NPC that you might want to design. The second controls how the Gardener NPC is generated and "blocks" the following traits from being randomly selected for the Gardener: Neat, Mean, Hates Children, Evil, Insane, Kleptomaniac, Hot headed, Slob, Geek, Lazy, Glutton, Squeamish, Gloomy and Jealous. It also provides SuperGreenThumb to help the Gardener in their duties. Finally, GardenerFullTime makes the Gardener hang out full time like a Butler. If you want all three features, you can use GardenerFull package otherwise just use the Gardener packages that you want (uniform, traits or fulltime.) Remember you need to have a "garden" to be able to hire a gardener.

Maid- there are three packages for the Maid: MaidNoUniform, MaidTraitAdjust and MaidFullTime. The first removes the Maid Situation outfit and simply lets you use the standard 7x5 outfits for the NPC that you might want to design. The second controls how the Maid NPC is generated and "blocks" the following traits from being randomly selected for the Maid: Mean, Hates Children, Evil, Insane, Kleptomaniac, Hot headed, Slob, Geek, Lazy, Glutton, Squeamish, Gloomy and Jealous. It also provides SpeedCleaner to help the Maid in their duties. Finally, MaidFullTime makes the Maid hang out full time like a Butler. If you want all three features, you can use MaidFull package otherwise just use the Maid packages that you want (uniform, traits or fulltime.)

Nanny- there are three packages for the Nanny: NannyNoUniform, NannyTraitAdjust and NannyFullTime. The first removes the Nanny Situation outfit and simply lets you use the standard 7x5 outfits for the NPC that you might want to design. The second controls how the Nanny NPC is generated and "blocks" the following traits from being randomly selected for the Nanny: Mean, Hates Children, Evil, Insane, Kleptomaniac, Hot headed, Slob, Geek, Lazy, Glutton, Squeamish, Gloomy and Jealous. It also provides Mentor to help the Nanny in their duties. Finally, NannyFullTime makes the Nanny hang out full time like a Butler. If you want all three features, you can use NannyFull package otherwise just use the Nanny packages that you want (uniform, traits or fulltime.)

If you used the previous version of this mod or are using it for the first time, any previously generated NPC's will not have the defined traits here; that part of the mod only impacts newly generated service npc's.

PSA: if you have a service NPC you like, you can save them to the library and then put in another game, you can hire them as long as you haven't made them a playable sim. This works regardless of whether you use this mod or not.

Enjoy.

Default Exceptions?
I'm getting a lot of exceptions with this mod. In particular, after I fired/dismissed a butler, or when the butler quits, I get a large exception (have not tried other hired help, yet). Anyone else seeing that?

At first I want to thank you for creating and sharing such a wonderful mod!
I am german- and so it could be that I didn't understand some explanations...So I can't find the way to hire the new NPCs. If my sims take the telephone, they only have the old choice of services...My question: how can I hire nanny, gardener, butler etc.?
With kind regards,
Rotlocke

You just hire the old ones like you normally do. The mod adds the modifications to these default NPCs, not creating new ones.

I removed all your files because I didn't like the maid standing in the Kitchen all day and night and never cleaned the house if she wasn't in the kitchen she would be setting at my sims desk playing on their computer.. I also would have liked her to wear the maid uniform which she did't.. Now after removing your files I'm having a problem with two to three maids coming a day.. good thing my sim has the free service trait.. It won't let me dismiss or fire them.

Hello. First, I want to thank you for this mod. I have wanted a live in Nanny for a while now. It really helps when you have triplets and those babies do nothing but cry, lol. Saves me from aging them up quickly (which I dont really want to do). Anyway, I am just wondering if there is a way to assign them a bed? It would make more sense, I think. I was at first annoyed that I had to make room for a Butler (in game with no mod), but now I see the benefit. it juat makes more sense. My Nanny just "hangs out" never sleeps. It is weird. He should. I got a good one, luckily, but he still needs rest If there is an option already, please just give me a hint, if not, can I just suggest it? Thank you.

Thank you for this. Just a quick question, are we supposed to be able to assign a bed to the Nanny, like the butler? Because they just, literally, hang out. it is weird. Just wondering.

How do I hire the NPCs to work for me? I tried having a sim in a household "call for a service", but there are no new options for a "Live In" service. And there also isn't an option to hire a butler. Maybe I downloaded the mod wrong? Is the file supposed to remain zipped?

Sorry to add a late post - just installed and not seeing any new entries for hiring staff, other than the normal ones included with the game. The maid comes, cleans, then leaves. Same with gardener. No butler option at all. Thanks.
