Pets Only Job Seeking Noticeboard

When the idea of adding Pet Jobs to my Job Seeking Noticeboard was initially raised there was some discussion about having a separate board with only Pet Jobs on it - so that it could be placed in a Pet shop and the human jobs board could be separate in a Job Centre.

My solution to this request is to make the single Job Seeking Noticeboard able to be configured to be either Pets only, Sims only or both. I have done this since most of the code in the object is the same for both and it would take up much more download folder space to have two objects. This is a little step-by-step to show you how to configure it for Pets.
  1. When building your Pet Store, place the Job Seeking Noticeboard somewhere appropriate, perhaps also choosing the Pet related recolor. You will see a message pop-up saying that Pet Jobs are On and Sim Jobs are on.
  2. If you now pick up the board and place it again (in the same spot is fine) you will see another message pop-up.
  3. Doing this a third and subsequent times will continue to cycle through the configuration options thus:
    1. Pet Jobs: On, Sim Jobs: On
    2. Pet Jobs: On, Sim Jobs: Off
    3. Pet Jobs: Off, Sim Jobs: On



  4. Now play your Pet owning Sim family.
  5. Go to your Pet Store taking the Pets which you want to get jobs with you.
  6. Choose the job for the Pet from the noticeboard.

The Pet Careers shown in the pie-menus above can be found as follows:-
  • Showbiz - Maxis Pets EP
  • Service - Maxis Pets EP
  • Security - Maxis Pets EP
  • Racing - here
  • Magic - here
  • Espionage - here
  • Circus - here
  • Time travel - here

Alternative method - only useful in live mode - so less useful overall
  1. When building your Pet Store, place the Job Seeking Noticeboard somewhere appropriate, perhaps also choosing the Pet related recolor.
  2. Now we are going to make a change to the board and for that we need to be in live mode on the Pet Store Lot, but...
    1. If the board is on a residential lot, for example a home business, it's easy since you have Sims there anyway.
    2. If the board is on an owned business (OFB EP) then send the owner to the business to make the change.
    3. If the board is on a community lot that isn't owned then any changes you make to the board with a visiting Sim are not saved so the only way to configure it is to use the placement method mentioned at the beginning of this journal entry.
  3. Press <Ctrl>+<Shift>+<c> to bring up the cheats window and in it type the following:-
    boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
    which will allow use of the debug pie-menu.
  4. Hold <Shift> while clicking on the noticeboard to bring up the pie-menu and you will discover a different pie-menu. This is the debug menu. Select Turn off Sim Jobs. (If you do this step again, you will see "Turn On Sim Jobs". The options toggle in other words).
  5. Press <Ctrl>+<Shift>+<c> to bring up the cheats window and in it type the following:-
    boolProp testingCheatsEnabled false
    to turn off the use of the debug pie-menu again.

The menu options toggle - so if you click "Turn Off Pet Jobs", and then look at the menu again, you will see "Turn On Pet Jobs". Journal Entry updated also.

Once the Turn Off... option is chosen, is there an option to turn it back on?
