As I do take requests, Grammapat requested the pets career Exterminator. You can always PM me to change anything of the career (hours, wages,…).

As I have made this career the way Grammapat requested, there are no chancecards.

The spelling and grammar have been checked by the spellingchecker in Office Word 2007 and on this site: www.spellchecker.net/spellcheck (recommended by the mods on MTS)
But if you see any spelling/grammar error, let me know and I will change it.

As I feel giving all the information about the career is a spoiler, I hide it behind the button (I have permission of a moderator to do so):


Credits go to:
SimPe, Photoshop, Grammapat
Superfly and Numenor

Have fun!

Alright, I've done some testing with a hack free game (except for custom careers) and it definitely seems to be your exterminator and search and rescue careers that are making pets in them lose their bodies (I don't have your other two careers).

The body loss (when the dog or cat becomes just a floating head) occurs either when they get back from work or if I've gone out of the lot and come back in. I tested with 4 pets, two cats and two dogs. One in the S&R career, one in Exterminator, one in a Maxis career and one in a custom career from a different creator. Only the cat and dog in your careers lost their bodies; the other two were fine. You can fix it by changing appearance in the mirror, but it will then happen again.

I turned testing cheats on and caught an error log that was causing pets in your careers to sometimes miss the carpool because it hit an error and reset. I've attached it below. It looks like it's trying to assign pets a work outfit, so maybe the invisible body is their supposed work outfit lol.

The other thing I noticed is that although the careers are not supposed to have chance cards they still show up. Either you get a blank pop up with yes or no choices (nothing happens, no matter what you click) or once I got a chance card for a different career entirely, which borked, of course, because my pet wasn't in that career. Let me know if you need me to do any further testing.

I updated this career. I changed the outfit as it was indeed indicated to have an outfit.
I also checked the chance cards settings of happening and that should be solved too.
Could you redownload and test it again, please?

Alrighty. Tried it again and the exterminator career seems to be fixed! No errors, no chance cards and my cat is keeping her body. Thanks!

The Search and Rescue career still has the same errors though. I think it's the same problem that the exterminator career had.

I'll change that career as soon as I can.
I'm glad it's solved.

That last bit about "going back to watching butterflies" actually made me sad for some reason.
Anyway, good job. Definitely using this now.
