The Extended Worker Data Mod 2.41

About This File

Have you ever wondered how many jobs of each wealth level a work building supports? This Mod adds three bars to the civic, commercial and industrial buildings rollovers that gives you just that information. It will also help you make informed decisions in regards to zoning for residential buildings.

 

In order to make this Mod, I created a new piece of UI with a matching data binding function. Fortunately, there was already an example similar to what I wanted to do in the MegaTower Office level rollover, so my first task was to copy the layout with the three bars into a new file.

 

I then looked up how the worker data was fed into the bars in the rollover, and copied that piece of JavaScript into another file. Because of the way the UI is packed in the game, I had to find a JavaScript file that is packed by itself rather than add the function to the main (and very long) UI file. To do this, I opened the Mayor Rating UI file and pasted the code at the bottom of it. I renamed the original “kSkyTowerLevelOfficePopulation” function to “kWorkers” and encoded it to “0xe15027f1”.

 

Finally, I went through all the units in the game that have workers (I actually looked for the code for “kMaintenance” and combed through the results) and added the new rollover item’s ID to their list of extended rollover data.

Hi Guillaume I think I speak for everyone when I say that your individual efforts in modding this game are great and gives me hope of this game being great. and that every mod you do makes the game better and alot more playable. I was laying in bed having one last look at the available mods last night and seen yiur next great mod the subway system ( honestly I was going to get up and download it but due to having to get up at 4.45 for an early flight I thought I had brtter not.

Does this mod require the Cities of Tomorrow DLC as I can't get it to work.. If it does you should let folks know.

 

Update: After finding out from another modder about their mod I decided to put this file in the simcitydata folder and now it works thank you for the awesome mod.. :)

I keep getting this issue after downloading the mod where the data is corrupt and i can't use it. I don't know what's going on the other mods work fine.

I'm just wondering, you said JavaScript, did you mean Java, they're totally different. I'm pretty sure SimCity runs on Java.

Awesome mod. I am finally taking a short break this evening from creating mods and am actually using them for once. This is a very useful mod, thanks!

in my industrial and commercial buildings, the rollovers jobs bars are always shown as half full. even though i have excess of unemployed workers in the city. does anyone know why is that?

I have the same issue as TEMO76. When looking at employing buildings they all say loads of jobs (many have less than half the workers they need), but the population detail screen tells me there are no jobs and rampant unemployment. Perhaps this is something to do with offline mode, as I didn't test it online.

FourWinds, exactly the same. Detail screen has zero vacant jobs while buildings employment bars are still half full. anyway, tell me if it is related to the offline play.

I love this mod, but I had to eliminate it, because, I don´t know how, but when I had the mod installed I couldn´t plop any module in the municipal airport. Is it just in my game?

MaxisGuillaume  - Please make this work Offline Sir!

 

Just out of curiosity, why are people saying that it doesn't work in Offline mode? Is it because of the half-full levels that it shows? If that is the case, how do you know that it's not accurate. I read somewhere that factories only require the minimum number of workers to open. This argument could be extended that the "available jobs" number only shows the minimum number of jobs needed for all factories to open.

Ok when I click on one of my industrial buildings the extended worker data mod says there are ten workers however when I go into the population data screen and place my mouse over the same industrial building it says there are 12 workers, I was wondering why this would be?

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

    • @Bipin Hi! Could you update the dependency links on this upload (and any other uploads of yours, which had dependencies on the sadly-no-existing-anymore SIMPEG page)? Thanks in advance! - Tyberius
    • Since this is growable, what size lot do I zone for this building to grow? (Ex. 2x2, 3x3, etc.?) Anyone who can answer this I'd appreciate it. 
    • This reminds me of the old one up by my house. The new Walmart got built next door in a big open area with the newer super center building, the old one now is a   Tractor supply Co., Dollar Tree and a little  Hibbett sports. 
    • Extract the file SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin.dll to the root directory of your plugins folder. This means put the file in C:\...\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. DO NOT put the file into a sub-folder, it will only work if placed into the main directory. Then enter your game and follow the instructions above. does this mean put it                 ||                                                       \/ \My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins [here]\sub-folder
