Also download Inge's OFB 4 TS3 Ticket Machine to get some customers to your home lot.
I loved creating little home businesses in The Sims 2 and after Inge made the Ticket Machine for The Sims 3, I wanted to continue on that theme.
You can use Inge's Ticket Machine for just getting customers to your home business if you set the price per hour to §0. That way you'll only get paid if you sell something. Also, make sure that there is not an open fridge on the lot or your potential customers will just grab something from the fridge instead of ordering from the bar!
The twist that this mod brings to your game is that unlike townie bartender, your sim can only serve the drinks that he can make. So to please the customers your sim has to practice making drinks. As high-skill drinks are more expensive too, that pays off.
New interactions for all professional bars:
- Tend The Bar
- Set As Business Bar (No Pay - No Drinks)
- Set As Home Bar (No Pay for Drinks)
Tend The Bar
Lets your sims tend the bar as townie bartender would. Your sim will stay tending the bar until he gets some urgent needs. Don't mix Tend The Bar with Manage Bar. Manage Bar is the original interaction in professional bars that lets you tend the bar, but you are not getting paid.
As I wanted this mod to work on all professional bars, I don't have as good control over actions as I would with a regular object mod. The payment happens right after the drink has been made and there are no discounts, tips or tab.
Sometimes the customer loses interest in getting the drink, maybe the wait is too long or something. You'll still get paid.
Set As Business Bar (No Pay - No Drinks)
This is for the times when you are not tending the bar, but you won't want others grabbing free drinks on the house. This does not stay on automatically, but you'll have to select this every time you stop tending the bar.
Set As Home Bar (No Pay for Drinks)
When customers have gone home, this enables the drink-making options again, so that your family may have drinks.
