Updated Jan 18, 2016
- Maxis updated a setting they forgot in the tuning for this mod. The change should
make it less likely for a doctor to leave the premises. This mod is probably no longer required
, but I have updated it to version 2 to include this change while retaining the doctor replacement code in case the doctor leaves anyway. Be sure to delete the old version of the mod if you update!
The old version is no longer available, as this change should be compatible with any game version back to 220.127.116.110 (September 24, 2015).
I got tired of my young doctor-in-training sim getting bad work performance because the only scored work actions available involved the need for a "real" doctor present, but they'd already left for the day to go play golf. And I have this vicious habit that when something annoys me enough, I either do something about it or ignore it completely and seethe. This time I did something.
nice and had the forethought to ensure that, if there were no career doctor sims available at the hospital for you to play the doctor-in-training job levels, a "diagnoser" doctor would be made available. However, if that diagnoser left the lot for some reason, they weren't replaced.
This is a simple mod to add a "replace" action which occurs if the original diagnostician leaves (or dies slipping in one of those puddles the analysis machine leaves behind) so you can get on with your job if you absolutely must transfer a patient case or otherwise talk to the lazy bum.
An_dz has release a mod that does more than just fix this one bug, if you want a much busier looking hospital, try out More Staff at Hospital
Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.
This mod requires the Get To Work EP updated with the latest game patch (Sept. 24, 2015, version 18.104.22.1680).
The bug will likely get fixed by EA one day at which point the mod can be removed.
(Hey, we can dream, right?)
In the event of a conflicting mod, this package modifies only the situationJob_CareerDoctor_NPC_Doctor_diagnoser (S4_9C07855F_00000003_000000000001C61C) XML resource.
