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.

Any chance you could alter this mod to allow rescuing drowning sims a skill instead of a career? Something that can be learned? Maybe a class at City Hall or the local Fire Dept? I play a lot of careers with my sims, but Lifeguard has never been one of them. Yet tonight, a total stranger jumped in my Sim's pool and drowned (died). I ran to try to save her, but had no options. In fact, the Grim Reaper was already standing there waiting when I got there. Then I spotted this mod and thought, wow, what a great skill this could be. Why fence it in as a career?

Great mod. Thanks again. I have however noticed that with this mod installed the phone options for Douglasveiga's Housekeeper, Gardener, Chef, etc. mods no longer appear. I thought you should know.

Dunno why Eaxis didn't make this an option. Seems kind of silly to me, so thanks for giving us the option.

Any way to stop mixologists from drowning? They no longer do their jobs because the mod pushes them into the water, especially if there are no other sims on the lot.

Thanks! I got annoyed that there was no way I could prevent my lifeguards to do their job, while also not getting burned by the sun the entire time. Now I can keep them indoors and safe, too.

THIS WOULD BE AWESOME! Maybe we will get lucky and someone will do it.

I am on Windows 8. I play SIMS 4 on a Surface Pro 4. I love it, runs beautifully.
I miss Sims 3, but not Error Code 12. Good Riddance.
I'm a football mom & play Sims with my little ones. I build, they wreck.
