ZOMGPets Job Fixes: Because Maxis Screwed The Pooch Again
« on: 2006 October 18, 10:59:01 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Could it possibly get any more broken? Could Maxis possibly pull off an even bigger Charlie Foxtrot? Yes. Very yes. Because while updating harderjobs-fixes, I found that they had screwed this up EVEN MORE, including breaking things that WEREN'T BROKEN IN THE FIRST PLACE and actually replacing previously functioning OFBp2 code with buggy pre-p2 code! It is simply completely and unexplainably FUBAR, and you need this.

Job Fixes for TS2PETSp0
Made by: Flying Fish Systems (J. M. Pescado & Doctor Boris)

Special Thanks To:
Hobbsee the Scrawny Pencil Neck
Fat, Hairy-Bellied Ness

Congratulations to: Draklixa!

INSTRUCTIONS:
Place in your MYDOCU~1\EAGAME~1\THESIM~1\DOWNLO~1 directory.

FEATURES:
Fixes a whole metric assload of brokenness relating to OFB jobs in TS2Pets,
as well as the preexisting problems in OFBp2
1. Teen OFB job now properly recognized.
2. OFB jobs no longer autopromote to invalid levels.
3. Retiring a pet now provides correct(?) pensions and doesn't demote your sim.
And all previously existing issues, like the retire exploit, teen hours bug,
and soforth.

COMPATIBILITY:
Compatible with all FFS hacks. For TS2Petsp0+ only! Replaces OFBp2
"harderjobs-fixes", as Maxis not only left all of those issues broken, they
made it even *MORE* broken! Required for harderjobs.

SIDE EFFECTS:
May cause computer damage, incontinence, explosion of user's head, coma, death,
and/or halitosis.

WARNING:
Do not open, crush, dispose of in fire, put in backwards, short-circuit, or mix
with non-awesome hacks - may explode, leak, or catch fire, resulting in injury
and/or death.

Dead link. Btw, once the initial frenzy of hack-checking is over might it be possible to have a list of "no change" and "updating required" hacks for all the hacks in this thread? I have around 100+ MATY hacks alone.

Well, in *A* thread, maybe. Not this one, though.

So, are you going to fix the broken link to the zipfile?

I already knew Pets would have been branched off OFB pre-patch code, but it puzzles me why they didn't merge back in the OFBp2 changes. After all, these were merged into the GLS code.
We're getting at least one Pets patch for sure.

I have no idea what you're jabbering about. Pets didn't even exist until very recently, WELL after any OFB patches or GLS.

Stupid EA. It would've taken them all of... 5 minutes? To patch the Petz code?


Although, one could argue that not everyone would have OFB and PETZ, so why include a fix for an EP they may not have?

I mean... besides... that it.. would.. make them ...responsible...

Do I need to delete the "harderjobs-fixes" package, or should they both be in my downloads folder?

Harderjobs-fixes is not approved for Pets. Do not use old hacks for previous expansions.

Updated again, now with a fix for Maxis making OFB-ownable-job detection completely FUBAR.

Try updating "no age discrimination"? Will investigate further.

Does no age discrimination work for Pets now too? I adopted a stray dog who turned out to be an elder and it wouldn't let him get a job because he's an old dog. Roll Eyes

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I need to make sure. Does this hack actually make the jobs harder or does it work along with the harder jobs hack to do that, because my pets have the skills to get promoted and a full job performance bar but can't get promoted and I was wondering if it had something to do with this or not?
This hack does not make the jobs harder. The harderjobs package does not affect pet jobs (I think). Are your pets going to work in a good enough mood to get promoted?

Because Pets lack the ability to get platinum mood, they will only rarely be promoted.

Hmm, the one pet I had get a career got promoted first try every time. But she is also lazy and very good at lounging around and keeping her needs and mood very high.

As far as I'm concerned, it's extremely easy to get pets promoted.  At this rate I'll have all the rewards unlocked without breaking a sweat.

My pets have no problems with jobs, so make sure you're not using outdated hacks. Old pre-Pets versions of noagediscrimination can cause this.

I have removed the old noagediscrimination and they now can get jobs BUT the carpool will not arrive. 

How can I fix that?
