REQUIRES THE XML INJECTOR MOD (since March'23)!
Hire certain Sims (incl. Family Members) at Restaurants
This tuning Mods lets you hire certain Employees at owned Restaurants. Dine Out needed!
Give Sims you want to show up in the Hire Host, Chef, Waiter Menu a certain Trait via the new Interactions:
You’ll find a new Pie Menu on Host Stations “Restaurant Employees” there you can add/remove Traits (Chef/Host/Waiter). Adding a Trait via my Interactions to a Sim will make sure they get the needed Skills levels for their work.
This will also help you if the Game added to many Traits to other Sims (happens when you open the Hire Window) and prevents your ceratin Sim to show up. Remove all the Traits from NPCs you don’t want to hire and add to those you want to hire. now they should again be on the List again.
The Hire Menu will most likley show those Sims with Traits but sometimes you have to refresh the Hire Menu.
You have to have at least a 2 Member Household if you want to hire Family Members. Buy a Restaurant. After your Sim did spawn there hire the Family Member which has to be at home as a Chef, Host or Waiter. Then let them spawn on the Lot and send the first Sim home to hire her/him too.
Requirements for Sims to be listed:
The Sims you want to hire/rehire need to be at home (if they are in your Family).
Chef: No Ghost, not Famous, min Age Young Adult, No Career, No EventNPC, No Alien trait, No CriminalNPC, No Vampire who would burn outside. Min. lvl 5 in Cooking and min. lvl 1 in Gourment Cooking & Bartending.
Host: No Ghost, not Famous, min Age Young Adult, No Career, No EventNPC, No Alien trait, No CriminalNPC , No Vampire who would burn outside .
Waiter: No Ghost, not Famous, min Age Young Adult, No Career, No EventNPC, No Alien trait, No CriminalNPC , No Vampire who would burn outside , No Childish an No Evil Trait.
You can install the Employee Package you want or all.
What you also need to know
Your hired Sims from your own Household will work like every other hired NPCs!
- If you take control of your hired Sim to let them use the toilet or whatever, they’ll go back to work after but it will cause a lastException.txt because you are interrupting their job, so be aware of that!
- These jobs are now visible in the Career Overview when you are searching for a Job via Phone or whatever. Don’t choose those Jobs this Way. Your Sim needs to be hired by the Restaurant Owner to work properly.
- When you visit the Restaurant with another Household the hired Sims (Lot Owner etc) will work there but the Game adds possibly more random NPCs. It may happen that these are still “hired” when you are playing the Restaurant Owners again. You have to fire them to get rid of them. (Happend to me with a chef once)
No Wages Addons
For each Employee Type a No Wages Addon is available. This sets the Wages to 0. In case you are the Chef for example you don’t have to “pay” yourself wages.
Skill for NPCs
Addon which sets Skills needed for Jobs to max for NPCs.
