MEDICAL


The plumbing has been severely damaged in the region. Water brought to the house is dirty and unsanitary. To make things worse, local drug stores have been cleaned out by looters.

METHOD

  • BASE GAME: MEDICAL
    • Prerequisites - None
    • “It’s the dark ages once again.”
      • Reach Level 10 of the Medical Career
  • ISLAND PARADISE: Lifeguard
    • Prerequisites - Island Paradise Expansion
    • "And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear; you almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear?"
      • Your sim, commissioned to pull the dead out of the contaminated oceans, has learned the medical techniques to revive his fellow sims and in the process also learns what it will take to purify the waters.
      • Reach Level 10 in the Lifeguard profession
        • A Sim attempting this method may join the Lifeguard profession even if Symphonic is not lifted.

RESTRICTIONS

  • BASE GAME
    • Sims may not go to the hospital to receive medical advice.
    • Showers and bathtubs of all types may not be purchased or used at home or on a "community lot.
    • The household may only have one sink and one toilet.
    • Dish washers may not be purchased or used.
    • Pools may not be built or used. There isn't enough clean water to waste on recreation. (Also restricted by Athletic. Outdoor pools are further restricted by Naturalist and Symphonic).
    • Sprinklers may not be used (also restricted by Science and Naturalist).
    • Whenever Sims woohoo, they MUST choose “Try for baby”. If ‘try for baby’ is not an option when it reasonably SHOULD be, they may not woohoo. (Unless the sim is already known to be pregnant, too old to get pregnant or the two Sims woohooing are the same gender and you are not using a polinator mod for a homosexual legacy).
    • If you have any hampers available in buy mode, you must own one. For example, Ambitions or Generations both introduce hampers, as do several expansion packs.
      • You may delete piles of dirty laundry as they accumulate; they are zero value objects.
    • Sims may not use laundry facilities (also restricted by Science). What fresh water remains available is too precious to waste on clothes.
      • This includes going to a laundromat or purchasing a washing machine.
  • WORLD ADVENTURES
    • Sims may not buy or use Shower in Can.
  • AMBITIONS
    • See above for hamper and washing machine rules.

    • Children may not play submarine in the tub (also restricted by Entertainment).
    • Sims may not use the slip n slide (also restricted by Naturalist and Entertainment)
    • Adults may not Woohoo in the shower, the tree house or other odd places. They can only woohoo in bed (they have to watch after the kids and don't have the freedom for all those imaginative places)
    • Sims must own a hamper.
