Description
A long time ago I used to use a mod by Zerbu that allowed players to change the career outfit that gets assigned by the game when you join a job. I used it mostly to give glasses back to my spectacled Sims while at work but I could also change other parts of their outfit if I liked. Sadly, Zerbu's mod stopped working a long time ago and he's never gone back to update it so here we are today with my attempt to recreate that mod.

Info
This mod REQUIRES Scumbumbo's XML Injector in order to function. Make sure you go download that as well or this mod won't work.

This mod will add a new Plan Career Outfit interaction to all mirrors, dressers, and Get Together closets. It will also be added to any other object that already has the Change Sim interaction so this means it will automatically work for Custom Content creations as well. Hurrah!

The interaction is only available to Sims who are currently employed in a job that grants a uniform and aged Teen and above.

When you select Plan Career Outfit your Sim will walk to the clicked on object and be taken into CAS where they will appear in their current career outfit. There won't be a special Career category and instead the Everyday tab will be selected. Make sure not to change the clothing category or the changes will be applied to the Everyday outfit instead.

When happy with your changes, exit CAS as you normally would by clicking on the tick icon. The next time your Sim leaves for work they will now be wearing your new chosen outfit.

Many thanks to Andrew over at the Sims 4 Studio forums for initially helping me to get the employment check working.

Notes
You will REQUIRE Scumbumbo's XML Injector for this mod to function. Ensure you have script mods enabled.

You may also like to make use of emilypl27's Change Into Career Outfit Whenever mod which allows you to dress your Sim in their career outfit any time you like. I highly reccommend it.

This mod should not conflict with anything thanks to Scumbumbo's XML Injector. No in-game tuning is overridden.

If a Sim with multiple jobs uses this interaction it will only allow you to alter the uniform of the most recently aquired job.

This mod does not unlock any of the career outfits for use in CAS. As a result, if you remove the career outfit assigned by the game and then save a new outfit you cannot re-assign the old outfit without getting your Sim to quit their job and rejoin. (Or use a mod that unlocks career outfits.)

The interaction doesn't work for Child Sims. If enabled, once they enter CAS there is no way to get them out since the game loads them on their own but insists a Teen or higher must be included to allow you to exit CAS.

I have attempted to translate the interaction into all languages supported by the game with the use of Google Translate. If the translations are wrong, please provide the correct translation and what language it is for and I will gladly update the package.

Change Log
UPDATE 11/03/20
Improved Russian translation provided by riddle-chan
UPDATE 04/08/19
Improved translation added for French provided by Caradriel, also known as Candyman.fr

UPDATE 01/08/19
I have now managed to fix the issue with semi-active careers. The mod previously was running a test to see if a Sim was in a quittable career to determine if the interaction should show for them. This meant that even if the game hadn't given them a uniform, you could still attempt to change one which would fail. The game now uses a test to see if a Sim already has a career uniform or not instead so the option will only be available if a Sim already has a uniform available to change. So if you find that your Sims in semi-active careers have no option to plan their career outfit it simply means they haven't reached a level to be assigned one yet.
I have also updated the Spanish translation thanks to Shalazar.

I've just tried it out in my test hood and it's still working fine for me. I can change the outfit and when my Sim leaves for work they change into the new outfit I have chosen. I'm not sure what to suggest.

Here is more information: I have these two Sims, one working as a Lawyer and the other as a Scientist (both at the top). I can change the lawyer's outfit. Not the scientist's, every time she goes to work, she wears that horrible default outfit, from the Scientist career. Before the last patch everything worked fine, I put on an outfit more like a lab coat for her, but now I can't keep the outfit on. Maybe something has changed regarding careers that you can follow Sim at work, as a doctor, scientist, police officer ...? (sorry my english, i'm using google translator).

I have a scientist at level 9 of the career and I was able to change his career outfit and he wore it correctly when I sent him to work the next time. I'm not seeing any issues in my game so I don't know what to check or what might be wrong. Have you tried testing with just this mod and the xml injector in your mods to rule out a conflict?
(Don't worry about your English. It is perfectly understandable)

So the mod is working normally, it must be something with my game. I'm going to try to re-download it, first. If it doesn't work, I'll try to see if it's a conflict. I'll be back to give you news, anyway. Thank you for your attention! :D

Hello! I tried to use only the mod (along with the xml injector and emilypl27's Change Into Career Outfit Whenever) and it worked correctly. As I have no idea which mod may be conflicting, I used the "Mod Conflict Detector" but it said that there are no conflicts with this mod. Do you have any idea what kind of mod might conflict? Just so I have an idea of where to start, what kind of mod could conflict with this type of mod that messes with outfits and such...

I'm honestly not sure I'm sorry. It shouldn't really be able to conflict with anything else to begin with thanks to scumbumbo's XML injector. All I can think of is if you have any mods that perhaps change the interactions on dressers or mirrors. The mod checks for objects that have the Change Sim option and adds my new option to them. If you have anything stopping the Change Sim option showing up that might stop this working as well.

Thank you for your attention! This may be the biggest challenge I face in finding conflicting mods, lol. I usually have an idea of what it might be, but this time... MCCC has the option to change work outfit but it still doesn't work in my game. God help me, lol.

The MCCC option doesn't work either? It might be worth trying a Game Repair in Origin to see if some of your game files have perhaps become corrupted.
If you're not sure how, right-click on the game icon in Origin and you should see a Repair Game option.

Hello! I solved the problem: I simply had two CAS backgrounds in my mods folder. I am offended by myself. How did I let that happen? Anyway, using MCCC it worked, so I think it will work with your mod too
