This is a cloned Open/Closed sign that allows you to view your employees wage status and to set auto regulate (ON/OFF) to a Fairly Paid for all your employees. "Fairly Paid is ON" will automatically adjust your employees salary to Fairly Paid if it is below Fairly Paid, if it's above it wont adjust it.

Available in Decorative/Misc
Price = $20

v2.0 - Updated to no disappear when walls down

v.30 - Added:
- "Assign Job.../Sim", I have no problem assigning job to my employee using object because of no need my sim to talk to an employee. But the three assign jobs (Sell Items, Tidy Up and Restock) that you can find in sim pie menus really bugs me because my sim need to talk to them and I'm sure you already noticed this. So here is another feature that I would like to share with you that would allow you to easy assign of the said jobs to your employees.

- "Walk Styles.../(Run/Walk)/Sim", since this is my personal version you will see this too, just simply ignore it if you dont like it, it will only allow your sim to run/walk because sometimes I like to see my stockman or salesman running while he is doing his job.

UPDATED: v3.1
- Fixed error: "No stack object present when required" in Debug mode. (Reported by CtfG)

Please allow me to use this one post to thank one of the great modder in sim world Inge Jones for all her wonderful mods/hacks that she shared to us from sim 1 to sim 2. Thank you very much. We hope to see you back again in the next EP.

Thank you thank you thank you! I was so fed up from getting yelled at when I didn't even know I was underpaying anyone. I think that Maxis should have put something like this in the game, but I'm glad you made it

You are what you do. You do what you want.

Hello ! I have found a bug with the regulator and the Tenant and Landlord mod (v.3) : I just can't click on the open/closed sign of the regulator since my sim became the owner of the house ... so do you think that something can be done ?

Monique,

thanks a lot for this mod. As someone stated earlier, it's nearly impossible to keep all the wages fair when there are more than 4 or 5 employees. Your mod really fixes one of the many Maxis' bugs in OFB.

I seem to have a problem with it, though. Whenenver I load a lot where this sign is installed, there comes an error message: "Error: No stack object present when required." Here's the first part of the error log; the complete log is included in the attached zip file. Maybe it will help you.

Thanks again for this mod!

Asigning those three jobs has always bothered me cuz employees don't listen to my sims (they just keep working) and the walk/run option is really great, and of course it's a great idea to have employees salary regulated, It happens all the time that an employee gains a couple of badges and quit (just when I started to like him)

Monique,

Is it possible to add "set auto-business hours and open-closed days" so that you don't have to call your employees everyday?
