Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
****FIXED 12/15/05: I re-wrote the entire career with all the chance cards still included with correct money rewards and losses. It no longer overwrites the law enforcement career, both now show up in my game appropriately. Thanks for your patience everyone! And thanks especially to Superfly for his continued assistance. Enjoy the career for real this time! :*) ****

UPDATE 12/14/05: Well thanks to matt for noticing that somehow, this career is overwriting the law enforcement career. I am taking the downloads offline until I can resolve the issue which should be tomorrow night-ish. I'm not sure what's causing it per se but I have a feeling what I am going to do will fix the issue. I do apologize to everyone who has downloaded this career so far and when I know what the issue is I'll let you know. :*)

***UPDATE 12/10/05: Well it seems I was on a mission to make people really rich or really poor. As this was not intentional I have corrected the money rewards in the chance cards for levels 6 and up. If you aren't worried about making some 32 million on level 10 then you need not download the new file (On the down side if you should fail you will lose 25 million O.o). My apologies for the mistake. It won't happen again. :*) Enjoy! ***

This is a requested career and I apologize as it took a while longer than expected to make it. However, I did manage to get it done and here it is. Thanks to those of you who requested this career for your patience. :*)

It's not this one that's doing it- check for other overwriting careers.

This hasn't overwritten my law enforcement career at all (EDIT: Yeah apparently I was seeing an apparition or something ;p). Not only that but it has a whole new GUID that basically is there to make sure it doesn't override the Law Enforcement career. Are you getting an error about Law Enforcement like an object error or is it just that the law enforcement career is gone?

What multi-painting are you talking about?

Thanks for your reply. The multi-painting I meant is Merola's Multi Painting (http://www.simchaotics.com/) which shows all the careers in the Sims2.
I don't get an error, my Law Enforcement career doesn't show up in the game....

Well I will look into it more tonight but I haven't noticed any issues in my game. Not averse to making sure something like this is resolved, it's just very very odd you are having this issue.

Well it looks like, despite the individual GUID, this career is in fact overriding the law enforcement career and on top of that if I put the law enforcement career in my downloads folder, it overwrites my detective career. Not exactly sure what's going on there but I think I have a fix regardless, it will just take me some time to get it setup. When I do I will let you know. In theory it should be tomorrow night kinda late.

Thanks for pointing this out and for doing some detective work of your own. ;p

lucent, just a suggestion as to what may be causing the problem- did you alter the group ID before or after making it EP compatible? If you did it before, the extra files without new group ID's may be causing the problem. Just a possible idea.

I typically do it first if I remember rightly, I've had a lot going on since then hehe. I was just going to recreate the career which is no big deal cause I have most of it copied in notepad so I can paste it in the new forms later when I get home tonight. I figured if I just run through all the steps again, I will be able to (possibly) figure out what I missed cause it's pretty obvious I've missed something at this point. :smash:

Though since you're asking Super...I take it there is a difference in the outcome based on when you change that info?
