Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here is a simple modded object which produces the list of an employed sim's coworkers, and allows said sim to 'meet' them if they do not know each other. A 'coworker' is any neighbourhood (& its subhoods) sims, playable or not, which share your own's career path, may it be custom or Maxis-made. With an exception for those in the teen version of the career if your sim is an adult, and vice versa.
(Logically, this phone book cannot be used by unemployed sims.)

Upon selecting a coworker in the list/menu, they will be added to your sim's relationship panel and therefore become callable. If your sim already knows the selected person, a popup will inform you of such. If the sim simply doesn't have any coworkers, you will once again be so informed.

The object can be found in Electronics/Small and costs 25$. As it was cloned from Phaenoh's phone book, it shares the requirement of needing any EP above Uni for it to function properly.

The coworkers' phone book has the very low poly count of 76.

Additional Credits:
Phaenoh, who generously let me clone her object as well as share the result.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
