What you also need to know
>>><<<

  • Your hired Sims 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)

    1. Please read the F.A.Q. first.

      If that does not help then i need more information than “does not work”.

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for the mod, I am having a bit of an issue though. For some reason the Chef part isn’t working. I get to select my sim and I get the notification that they are hired for Chef, but when I open the business my other sim (Host) appear but not the Chef. Instead I get an NPC chef that spawns, but when I check employee management, it says my sim is the Chef. I tried opening with different sims, but same results. I tried when the sim isn’t in the restaurant and when he is, but it doesn’t work. I also can’t fire the NPC chef no matter how many times I fire him. I tried hiring my other sim instead, but same issue. I fired my sim, rehired him, reset him, nothing. I also removed all other mods and CC, so the only two things I had in my mods folder was the Chef and Host mods, and same issue. For right now I will be removing the chef part of the mod, but I am keeping the host, since it is working.

    1. Just tested ingame. It worked with Members of the Active Family as well as other played Household Members. I could hire them and they showed up when i did open the Restaurant.

      It does not work if your Sims doesn’t fullfill the Requirements of min. lvl 1 in Cooking/Gourment Cooking & Bartending. They are hireable but the Game can not spawn them and replaces them with unimportant NPCs.

      1. Hello LittleMsSam,
        It has been a while. At the time I tried your advice and made my character lvl 2 cooking and mixology. It didn’t work, so I just gave up again on it. I eventually moved on from that household. Anyways, tried again new household but it didn’t work. I then tried by maxing all sim skills with a cheat and the chef worked. So then I removed all skill, and worked my way down cooking, gourmet cooking, and mixology. Anyways, the mod worked but only with my sim being lvl. 5 cooking, lvl1 gourmet cooking, lvl 1 mixology. From your description, though it meant lvl 1 in cooking or lvl 1 gourment cooking were options, but it really is only lvl 1 of gourmet cooking, which you unlock at lvl 5 cooking. I figure I post that little clarification. Thank you so much for creating the mods and the help provided. You are wonderful.

          Ah alright, thx for letting me know i will change the description. Sry about the trouble!

  2. Hi, I am having the exact same issue with the Chef part as Lunaimes. Tried everything several times and nothing seems to help.

    1. Same Answer as above.

      The only thing i can offer is to take a look into your save.

      For that you need to upload the Savegame somewhere, send me a Link and the Infos which Family owns the Restaurant and who should be hired as Chef.

  3. Hello LittleMsSam,

    Thank you for your game mod, it is a terrific one!
    I have the following issue, my family has 3 adult members, I managed to hire 2 of the members as chef and host however as the default NPCs are no longer visible I’m not able to select another Sims for the other positions in my restaurant and this way I cannot open the restaurant.

    Sincerely,
    Jenny Stefanova

    1. If you only want to have Family Members as Chefs/Hosts you can only install the Files for those Jobs.
      You should be able to hire NPC Waiters if you don’t use the Waiter Part of this Mod.

      With the Way EA handels hiring in Restaurants there is no other way for me to make this Mod happen. Unfortunately i cannot mix Family Members/NPCs as being hireable.

      If you want a Family Member and a NPC as Chefs for example you should make the NPC a “Played Household”.

  4. So the mod worked but had a horrible side effect. The restaurant was going well until I went to my music store and went to manage maybe hire more using a different sim family. If you’re on another venue you own that is NOT a restaurant and attempt to manage employees or hire more the moment you click the button for it you get big pop up that says “Hell NO!”. Just kidding…it says log script error but neglects to allow any further use of employees and hiring abilities.

    1. So hiring Restaurant Employees while being on other lots don’t work? Have you only tried it on the Retail Venue that you own? Were the Restaurant still open?

        1. hm, if the problems was still there after you removed the Mod then i’m not sure if it was this Mod that caused the Problem. But i will check out later ingame if i can hire employees at Retail Stores with this Mod active.

  5. @Brett Keane i checked it ingame. Had a Family with a Restaurant and hired their family Members. Then i switched to another Household who had a Retail Store and hired NPCs. I could hire them and open the Shop without any Problem. I’m not sure if it really is this Mod here that is causing the Issue or maybe another Mod or Mod Conflict!

  6. Hi LittleMsSam, is it possible to change the job requirements to allow teenagers as well? I’m using Telford’s “Drop Out of High School and Get a Real Job” mod (available on ModTheSims site) that lets my teenage sims quit school and join the proper adult jobs. For one family, I want the teenager to help as a waitress in her parents’ diner. I hope it can be possible ^^ I’m already using this mod for her father as the chef and her mother as the host, it’s working very well. Thank you for such a great mod!

    1. I tried that in the beginning but it did not work. No matter what i did Teens did not spawn on the lot and if i let them spawn before opening the Restaurant they did not go to do the work. So i took them out again.

      1. Oh I see, thanks for response ^^ I have (very) basic XML knowledge from school class so I tried to fiddle with the mod earlier, I just added/replaced Teen under all the Age parts. It allowed me to pick Teens from the employee selection panel, and my Teen could now see the Waitress job when she search for jobs on the phone. But after I selected her from the panel, like you said up there, she did not spawn for the restaurant shift 🙁 Even when I spawn her on the lot first before opening the restaurant, she did not change to uniform or have “Waitress” above her name, or do any work, but the other waitress I hired who is a Young Adult showed up properly. Maybe it is something deeply embedded in the file that we can’t see >.< Sorry for troubling you with long post, thank you again for your help^^
