July 18 - It's patch day for The Sims 4! See what issues have been fixed.

Sims 1 Job rest days?

OK I decided to play the Sims 1 for nostalgic reasons after about 13 years. The one thing I noticed in Sims 1, is that there are no off days for Sims to rest when they start a career?

Can anyone clarify? Sims 3 and 4 has rest days but what about in Sims 1? I can't seem to remember. Thanks!

    Yes, I found the answer at last. It is here: https://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/193984-the-sims/faqs/7484

    Q: Do Sim's ever get a day off of work or school (like a weekend or
    holiday)?

    A: Nope. Your Sim's will have to work everyday without even one day
    off. You could get them a day off but too many times will cost you your
    job.

    Purchase a gnome making table and gain all the mechanical skills. Then your sim can make gnomes when they want and earn 100 dollars an gnome. No more working every day and just work when you want.

    You know, I never noticed that or thought it was odd back in the ts1 days. Now our sims are spoiled :p

    I think kids didn't get weekends off from school either.

    Yeah, days of the week didn't exist in Sims 1. You can have them skip work for a day, but two days in a row and they're fired. I found out the hard way when I was a kid.

    Oh wow lol I seriously can't remember ever noticing this either back in the days :D Isn't it weird though to play TS1 again? I still go back to TS2 every now and again because I remember I liked it a lot more than TS1 from the first second I laid eyes on it, but I've never really felt an itch to play TS1 again now after all these years (and with 2,3 and 4 being available to me). Does it still feel just as fun? I'm really curious now :D

    Well, as a PlayStation peasant I had to live a bit longer with the system of 'no weekdays' just every day the same over and over again :) it's pretty tough though! I love being back in Sims 1, but yes we have gotten spoiled over the years! Sims 1 was actually a tough game to play.

    You can actually skip work every second day without losing the job :D
    That's how I've managed to let my sims have a few days off here and there.

    Yeah but once their mood got really bad you barely had enough with that 1 day off haha!

    I had a something called the magic fruit cake. When your sims ate it would max the needs of everyone in the house. So I would build a small room with no doors or windows, make and place a sim I would never play in that room and all that sim did was stand there eating the dang fruit cake....lol

    I have to agree out of all the games in the series, TS1 was the hardest of them all.

    Is there any way to download this fruit cake?
