Hello Mr. Leefish,
My sims create some really nice businesses, especially the restaurants. However, one thing that OFB does is maddening. I can best explain by example.
Sim A has a lovely restaurant, complete with a highly skilled chef, a hostess, one or two servers. He's usually the chef, but not always.
When I play Sim B, and he goes there to dine, Sim A is autonomously reassigning the jobs of his employees, and ends up with a chef who can barely cook, or the podium is unattended b/c he reassigned that employee to be server, and so on. A work around has been to use a 'Select this sim' mod to get him back on track, but it's distracting b/c I only want to focus on Sim B especially if Sim B is on an outing with friends or has a date. (It's even worse when I have additional employees such as a bartender and DJ.)
Attached is a pic of my Pollination Tech and his son Johnny on the rooftop of the restaurant, who I am playing in this scene. They don't own it, they're just on an outing, and I only want to play them. The other photo of the sim with the blue sleeves owns the restaurant. He's supposed to be the chef, but instead is about to auto-reassign his no-cooking skills waitress as chef. I can't see the pics in the preview but maybe you can.
I considered using 'Business Run You' hack, but that has a lot of other features I don't want, and would have to also use other mods with it to work which I also don't want.
I've been playing TS2 for years, have all the EPs and expansion packs through M&G.
Thank you for your time if you can do this.
