Magic Career Version 1.2

This is my ever-changing Magic Career for The Sims 2.

This career has 10 levels, which vary slightly from men to women:

1. Conspiracy Freak
2. Party Magician
3. Gifted One
4. Apprentice Witch/Wizard
5. Grizzelda's/Grimlock's Assistant
6. Chosen One
7. Magi School Teacher
8. Potions Store Owner
9. Super Witch/Wizard
10. Sorcerer/Sorceress

This is my first career [and my first upload to MTS2] so feedback would be appreciated.

Also if anyone has any requests for Careers then i would be happy to take them on. Well, not all of them, but some of the lucky few :P

Also, a thankyou/apology needs to be sent to Bobbling. I used his Hacker carrer as a base for this without asking! I AM SO SORRY.

*UPDATE *

This career is fully independent [wont overwrite anything] and EP ready. Thanks so much for SuperFly for helping me with this, I couldn't have done it without him. Well, actually, he sort of did it for me :salute:

*PLEASE NOTE*

I have only managed to create one chance card for this career [For Conspiracy Freak], as they are extremely time consuming. If you wish to create chance cards for this career please notify me. I will then update this section with credits to you.

This is great. Thanks!

For a really good site, go to my site, cheekyzmonkeyz. Do NOT I repeat NOT expect there to be any sim downloads. It is not a sim site. Plus, click here for...something weird. You'll see.

A few things to point out-

1) It's not EP ready, and I'm pretty sure it's going to overwrite Bobbling's career (the guid doesn't look like a guid database guid)

2) You don't need the .bak files included in your download.

*UPDATE*

Magic Career Version 1.1

On SuperFly's advice i have updated the GUID so that it will no longer overwrite Bobblings Hacker Career. However if anyone has tested it and can see it works then please do say!

When I installed this I experienced the same problem with careers as when I installed University. That is, the game hung completely when trying to load a house. I think that this career may work fine with the original but not with any EP.

I will be sure to download if this ever becomes EP ready. It looks great. :D

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Hi guys

I had anotehr look at the updated version, and it was still conflicting. I therefore took the liberty of fixing the package for you- it's now EP ready and will not conflict. I'd update your main post if I were you.

My god SuperFly you are a life saver thank you!

I have updated the download file to the one that SuperFly miraculously fixed. If you have an older version of the Career, please download the new one if:

1. You have Bobbling's Hacker Career
2. If you have any expansion packs

If you dont have any of the above you should be fine, but I would download the new one anyway, just in case.

I haven't made a career reward because I am nowhere near that good yet. The current career reward is the Teleprompter. If you wish to make a magical themed object for me, i would be only to happy to include it in the package.

I'm sorry but this is a bit confusing. Are you saying that the DL file up in the top area is now the final version? If so, could you make a note to that effect in the description up there (under an Update perhaps) so that we poor users out here know which one of the 3 files we are supposed to get, EP or no EP?

Oh...and do we need to have Bobbling's career for this to work or what??

I really appreciate this and can't wait to try it out. Thank you!!!

I have now updated the post. Mine and Superfly's downloads are now gone, the newest version of the package will always be at the top of the post. Thanx to Superfly's ingenious, the package is now EP ready.

I probably worded that last post wrong, you do not need Bobbling's hacker career, what i was saying was that if you had Bobbling's hacker career then this career would overwrite it.

This Career will be constantly updated, so if you take note of the version at the top when you download it, then check back once in a while, and the version might have changed, hence you could download a better version.

I hope this cleared up your questions. :P

The download is missing -- and I have a witch that really needs a job. *snickers*
