Requesting Professional Service

Post by Venusa12 » August 31st, 2016, 2:49 pm

Hi. I am grateful to nraas mods. Lately i wanted to try out Woohooer with Kama Simtra addition. I let the mod fill the list with sims for Professional service. But when i try to invite any of them over i get a notification saying "Actually,something suddenly came up and I can't make it. Sorry." and whenever i try (Random) Professional Service, a notification pops up telling me that i am broke LMAO.

When i first tried the it gave me these notifications, then i changed my household and it worked. My sim was a singer celebrity,rich,had a big house and a butler. I also deleted the electronic gate to test if my home was unreachable. The household which i got the mod working was just two people small house.

Today i started a new game and i got to the same point with my sim where she was a celebrity etc. The same notifications appeared when i tried out the mod. So i changed to another household. But this time it did not work and i got the same notification with the other household. I tried professional service around 7pm and it said that someone would come over. But they did not show up at all.

So i am confused because i got it to work before and now it is gone again and sometimes it wants to work?

I am so sorry if this made no sense, this is my first post so i apologize if i am being blind about the issue. Thanks !

Hi there, and welcome to NRaas.

The ordering up Professional Services feature is relatively new to Woohooer and many of us have had varying experiences with it. For some, it almost always works. For others, like me, much of the time in very busy, probably overpopulated worlds, half the time the service provider never shows up or the game goes into interminable lag constantly re-pushing things to happen that don't seem to want to.

I do recall that the service is only available at night, do not remember right now what time it actually should become so. Perhaps 7pm is not late enough? For the high number of failures though, I only recall getting the "Can't Make It" notification when the sim selected really was busy at the time being a Service Sim someplace else in town and hadn't gone off-duty yet. Though my memory is also a bit fuzzy on that part.

Most recently, one of my sims used the feature while the household was vacationing in Monte Vista, a world that is not very far progressed in that game and doesn't have a very high population to push around. Everything worked smoothly (except for the part where my sim didn't enjoy the experience, but that's another story).

Point is, it's a fun feature but it doesn't always work as reliably in all worlds all of the time like the rest of the mod and its add-ons are know to do.

I did not know that it was a new feature,i thought it was supposed to work smoothly like every other nraas mod. (Which are amazing!) I thought i was doing something wrong but thanks to you i found out that it is kind of buggy at this stage. Then it means i have to accept it for what it is and be able to use it when i am lucky. Are there any clues that this is going to be improved or is this feature complete and no improvements are going to be made?

BTW i tried it around any time of the night but as you said it may have bugs so the hour may be ineffective. Thank you so much for helping me out.

Well, it was a new feature as of almost two years ago...time flies, I guess. Was a favorite project of our lead developer. Not sure returning to that one is a high priority for him, though he probably will some day. Of course he can answer this better himself when he sees this thread. :)
