Pool Jobs for Lifeguards

Mod Description

This is a script mod that makes it possible for sims in the Lifeguard career to be offered and perform jobs on pool lots as well as the usual beach lots.

Details

Just install the mod and any lifeguard sim that you are playing will be offered jobs on any community lot marked as either a Pool or Beach (without the mod only beach jobs are spawned - which is why the job will still be called "Survey Beach" regardless of lot type). If you'd like your sim to work on a lot that's neither of these types, you can use the testingcheatsenabled true then CTRL+Shift+click > Spawn Job on the lot method to generate a job on any lot you like.

The job description remains the same no matter which type of lot it is, random sims on the lot may spontaneously faint or "drown" while swimming and it's your lifeguard's job to save the day. One notable difference is that you'll probably see more drowning sims on pool lots, since jumping into a pool is so much easier for a sim to do compared to swimming out until the water is deep enough to drown, which is required on beach lots but often fails because of the terrain.

The mod also manufactures some dramatic tension by pushing sims in the vicinity to panic a little when a sim starts "drowning" on the job.

End Notes

Built and tested on patch 1.67

Requires Island Paradise

lol, that is so funny! Well, this is reassuring - no death involved! Good, I'm installing it right now Thanks, Icarus!

To use this mod, I have to be in lifeguard profession that can be joined in city hall, right?
Also, besides from city hall, only Day Spa shows up option to be "Join Lifeguard Career".
Is that suppose to be happen?

I'm so happy that you made this. I often placed lifeguard chairs around pools even though I knew they were kinda useless. Now, not so useless. :-) Thank you.

What do you mean? There is a lifeguard career. It is an active career that came with Island Paradise.

TIL means "Today I learned" at least that's what google says it means on Urban Dictionary. I also believe that is why they capitalized the whole word.

It comes with the EP Island Paradise so if you don't have that, sadly you won't have the Life Guard profession. Making this mod useless for you

It always bugged me how lifeguards wouldn't get a job on a pool without using cheats to get it. Thank you!

Request: Can you mod that so they do drown if the lifeguard doesn't save them in time? :D

Also If Possible, do the opposite to the one's that do indeed drown. While that might never happen or on rare cases if not, maybe add a possible npc lifeguard worker (not sure, but I do doubt that there isn't one in vanilla game) that saves a drowning sim(- when he/she's on low energy bar). Or just mod that so your playable sim begins to drown on a random chance IF there is that npc lifeguard supervising near you.

Additionally, another request came to my mind: maybe allow the sims to actually drown in oceans/beaches? :P
