Updated for Island Living.

Older updates

As I was playtesting another career mod, I run into a problem of the The Street Gallery object becoming impossible to be cleared by the sim. Since this problem is not caused by my mod, I couldn't solve it, but made a workaround instead: I changed the "start a street sale" assignment to "start a street sale or yard sale", so it will be fullfiled if you start it in your own lot. (your sim still won't be able to clear it, but at least you can clear it in buy mode). This way, your world won't be filled with random street galleries

The mod is updated for the seasons patch, I replaced some missing text files.
If you still run into any problems (e.g. other missing texts, because I could not test all assigments), please let me know in the comments.

Mod Description

Hello Simmers!

After my Writer Work from Home mod, I made the painter version because it seemed another popular option

This mod enables the "work from home" option for the painter 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. A few examples of these assignment are below.

Painter (before choosing a branch)
  • painting in different styles (classical, pop art, abstract, etc.)
  • painting emotional paintings
  • taking photos
  • crafting sculptures
  • starting street sales
  • discussing art

After choosing a branch, the Master of the Real career will have very similar assignments as above (with a few additions like painting excellent paintings and leveling up in the logic skill). Patron of the Arts however will have more social assigments and a few artistic ones. Patron of the Arts assignment examples:
  • meeting sims in different neighborhoods
  • mentoring other sims in painting
  • making inspirational speeches
  • improving charisma skill
  • painting

Your sim will get the same amount of money they would get by working a whole workday in the traditional way. One assignment grants half the daily wage since you get two assignments every day.

The levels, skill requirements, work days and wages per hour (if you choose to send your sim to work) remain the same as they were without any mods.

I hope you like it

I assume this conflict with Zerbu's Turbo Careers mod?

Thank you so much for updating your "Work from Home" mods! I usually have all of them in my game and I really enjoy home work option.

Hi! This is really a great idea. I have all your mod "work at home" and I hope you will do others, that would be really great!
But I have a little problem, may be with the french traduction... sometimes, I can't read the home mission, just like this :
It happens with other missions (at least another with x5 things to do) and other job mod (I'm sure about the athlete mode but don't remember precisely.)

This mod broke with the latest patch. The user no longer gets the pop-up to choose if the sim should work from home or go to work. When it is time for work, the sim will not be able to go.

Try having the sim quit the job then get the job back again -- I had a writer in an old save with a similar issue after I took out the mod and they got stuck at home. I would really appreciate an update as well; I love the flexibility of the work from home options especially when my Sims are raising a family.

I just realized today that you had updated all your work from home mods except for this one, which is the one I use the most! Are you planning to update this one as well? I sure hope so! Thank you for all your hard work and your mods! I love them!

I'll never grow up and I'll never grow old...blame it on the love of rock and roll!
