Updated diary file (deleted extra file from the package)
This is a hacked object that allows you to temporarily open student's job panel that is normally replaced by major/classes panel.
But isn't there 2 objects?
Yes. I've made a choice of bulletin board and a diary for you. Both objects have the same function, but different forms and GUIDs. You can choose one or have both.
Wait, but are young adults even allowed to have a job?
Yes, with some help of in-game cheats (testingcheatsenabled) or custom hacks. I'm developing my own mod to support students' jobs - not only make them available, but also comfortable to play with. Will be up for testing soon.
Why "experimental"? Sounds dangerous.
Technically, what happens is this: young adult temporarily stops being young adult
. What you see is adult's UI. This is the reason why I made the game go on pause - so nothing will happen while you're browsing the panel. When you unpause, the sim will go back to YA right after that (in 1 fraction of a second). If you go out of live mode or click an object again, the sim will revert instantly - not even a fraction of a second will pass.
I've made sure that after going there and back sims remain completely the same they were before. How I tested it: took a sim, recorded all her data (attributes, tokens and all), then I used a hack with her a couple of times and checked her data again. Nothing changed.
So, I am confident for now, but this is pure science. And in science, you can never be sure you're right, you can only be sure you're wrong. So, this hack is safe until
Ok, how to use it?
Get an object from buy mode and place it on a lot. Bulletin board is found in Decorations->Wall hangings. Diary is in Misc.->Misc.
Have young adult click the interaction (show). The game will pause. Open job panel. If it's already opened, toggle it to refresh. To revert back to major/classes panel, either click the interaction (hide), or just un-pause the game, or leave live mode.
One object allows to view 2 students at a time.
Don't do "force error - delete" on this object the very
moment you're viewing student's job panel in live mode. Not that you would, but hey. I also wouldn't click the mod at the very
moment of age transition from young adult to adult, just to be on a safe side.
Need a helmet?
Having University EP should be enough. But since I'm on Ultimate Collection, it's best for you to try it out in a testing hood, if you don't have all the EPs.
references mesh and texture from the same maxis one that comes from Uni.
, I went a bit further, it has its own mesh and textures. It is basically resized and recolored photo album. Mesh has the same polycount as original BV album, it's just smaller. Five recolors included: black, blue, green, yellow, pink.
Enjoy and please let me know, if something isn't right.

as a wonderful tool. ModTheSims as a knowledge database and hosting. Blender - meshing tool.
