Update

Updated for the latest (Feb.12) patch.


Older updates

This mod should be compatible with the seasons patch, I checked the files, but I uploaded an updated version with new assignments: writing playful, romantic, motivational and children's book. If you want these assignments to show up, please download the mod again.
If you still run into any problems (e.g. missing texts, because I could not test all assigments), please let me know in the comments.

Mod description
I made my first mod that enables the "work from home" option for the writer career. Working from home has the same mechanism that came with City Living careers. You will get a notification 1 hour before work where you can choose from sending your sim to work, working from home or taking PTO. Then you get two assignments if you choose the "work from home" option. Most of the assignments are the same as other careers' (social media, critic, activist), but there are some new tasks, especially after choosing a branch for your sim.

Below there are a few examples of the daily assignments.

Writer (before choosing a branch) career assignments
  • improving writing skill
  • reading books
  • visiting different neighborhoods

Author career assignments
  • improving writing and logic skills
  • writing books
  • reading books
  • publishing books

Journalist career assignments
  • taking photos at different venues
  • interviewing sims
  • visiting festivals
  • rummaging bins for information
  • writing articles

Please tell me if you run into any problems.
I hope you will enjoy it

I don't think so; reports are that all the career type mods broke. I had a Sim who was in the writing career and had finished a work from home assignment but never was able to go in to the office, so I had her quit the career and get re-hired and that seems to have fixed that particular Sim..

Hi! The new patch for the Eco pack broke all custom careers -- Is this one compatible?

Thank you!

Hello, tested it, worked fine. But please let me know if you run into any problem, like missing texts or unfulfilled assignments (I can't test all of them)

I tried installing the WFH mods (Writer, Painter, Tech Guru, Business) but only the Painter was showing up on my mods list at the beginning of the game; when I checked only the Painter folder had the .package file after unpacking.

Wanted to thank you for this mod. Is it by any chance still working with the Sept 2020 update? Thanks again!
