Update

Updated for the latest (Feb.12) patch.

Older updates

Updated for the seasons patch. Jogging with your dog also fulfills the "go for a jog" assignment.
If you still run into any problems, please let me know in the comments.

Hello Everyone!

This is the third mod of my collection of "Work from Home" mods (I have already made a Painter and a Writer version.)

This mod enables the "work from home" option for the athlete 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 assignments are below.

Athlete (before choosing a branch)
  • perform group dance (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • show off dance moves (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • go for a jog
  • workout in the gym
  • discuss fitness
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)

Professional athlete
  • play basketball
  • perform jumps on the jumpstand by the pool (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • go for a jog
  • socialize with co-workers
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)
  • study opponents

Bodybuilder
  • mentor sims in fitness
  • make healthy food (protein shake, if you have the Spa Day GP: carob cake, superfood salad)
  • do yoga (if you have the Spa Day GP)
  • go for a jog
  • showing off muscles
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)
  • discuss fitness

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.

Recommendation
If you have the Get Together EP, I recommend using the club features. You can have a dedicated workplace (club hangout) and the co-worker assignments are easier to complete if you create a club that only allows sims from the athlete career. You can also benefit from the club perks (like skill boosts and energized atmosphere). It also has great story telling potential, I made a club for my low level athletes and the desired activity is dancing (Athlete career's fourth level is Dance Team Captain and the game provides a pretty good outfit that you can use as club uniform).

This mod was made with Sims 4 Studio, so many thanks to them.

Anyway I think you won't stuck in work if you don't complete the assignments, you just get a notification when the next workday starts telling you did not make a good job and you get new assignments.
Can you please help me with the career and skill levels of your sim and how many times the missing text assignment should be made? Thanks


No worries at all about the mishap. Nothing in life is perfect and this patch hit modders hard. I did have her quit the job - she wasn't fit for an athlete anyway lol. She was around level 5. Her fitness was around 9 or so. The missing assignment was blank with a 0/3. I kept hoping it was just a UI glitch and I had her jump in the pool so many times. Then I took her to the gym and had her use all types of machine hoping to clear it. It was quite comical after a while since it felt like a scavenger hunt. hahaha. :D

I love your work from home mods. Yesterday I had a sim in the Athletic career work from home. He was directed to workout on the treadmill. He had one at home and proceeded to workout, however his home workout was not counting, As a result, he had to visit the gym for his workout requirement. I didn't find this as an inconvenience, but I was wondering if that was an expected outcome for this mod.

EDIT: I totally forgot about the patch and next stuff pack to be released, so what I was experiencing is quite understandable. No reply is needed.

These are amazing!! I am currently enjoying the athlete and writer. Please, Please consider doing one for the tech guru, which in my mind IS an at home career :-) and homeschool, then my WHOLE family can stay home and enjoy more family time. Can you say insane!!?? I hesitate on the choice to have kids as they spend so much of their time at school, there's no time to enjoy them. A homeschool mod would be amazing!! I have the exit early mod http://www.modthesims.info/download...=1&goto=newpost but think the idea of homeschool would be great!

I have almost finished the tech guru career, only thing left is to make a good photo soon you can enjoy that one too. If I finish the remaining careers (astronaut, secret agent, criminal), high school and grade school are the next goal.

Hello!

I have the Cats and Dogs expansion, and when I got the work task "go for a jog", it did not complete when I did it from the leash menu with my pet. It would only complete from clicking on my Sim. Is it possible to make it so this task completes if you go for a jog with your dog in the leash menu?

Does this work with the newest pets expansion? In the other mods people are commenting that they need to be updated.
