I have a similar problem, but I get the following error message.
Could not find job:C:\DATA\PROGRAMMING\MILO\SIM_JobBase.cpp 396
I tried inserting the extra XML after , but that didn’t solve the problem.
I have another save game that is close to the one that causes the problem, but when I try to load that one, I’m unemployed. The difference between the two is that in the first one (the one that produces an error message) I’m a partner at a law firm and in the second one, I just accepted a job as an actor. As far as I can tell from the content of the save games (and as far as I can remember from the last time I played) they are the same otherwise.
