MC Career

The career module contains settings to work-around the way that the Sims 4 core-script will assign career jobs to households marked “Played Households” if they are not the active household and employment ranges for each age-group. The ranges are set-up in a minimum/maximum manner. So, for Teenagers who, with EA’s defaults, have a range of 40/50. That means they will have no less than 40% employment and no more than 50%. If the numbers drop below that, Teenagers will be given jobs. If the number goes above 50%, they will quit their jobs.

Freeze Career flag:

In the Sim Flags menu, there is an option on Sims older than Teens to Freeze Career.

  1. For NPC Sims, this flag will bypass the EA core functionality that reassigns an NPC Sim to different jobs. Whatever their current job is, they will keep that job. This prevents them leaving the job either by quitting or retiring. Note that if you flag an NPC Sim that has no job, the core processes will never give them a job so they will always be unemployed.
  2. For active Sims, the flag just stops their career progression. They will neither gain nor lose progression in their career level as long as they have the flag.
