Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
EDIT: I've just run through this career again with EPs: University, Night Life, Open for Business, & Seasons. Worked fine!

This is my first Sims Creation and was inspired by these careers:


So first I ought to give them thanks where thanks is due for the inspiration. However, I found that all three had problems. At least one overwrites the science career. Two have no chance cards, etc.. Plus I found that none really did justice to the unique beast that is the film industry.

So I decided to have a go at making a career. This career is completely original and won't interfere with those. It has been extensively tested with the original game and SHOULD be compatible with EPs, but I don't know for sure because I don't have them! (Thanks to Superfly who says it works with EPs!)

*THIS IS A HARD CAREER* Just be warned. It is designed to represent one
possible path to the top. This career is not for the faint of heart or sims
with family aspirations! heh. The film industry is infamous for being hard to
get into and I thought I'd transfer a bit of the fun to the sim world! Note:
This is a film industry career and NOT acting. Just so you know.

This a complete career. (all original files)
Custom jobs, level, pay, hours, and motives.
Chance Cards
Custom clothing (if not too exciting - maxis stuff with Arri written on it)
Custom reward object. (academy award! -)
Custom Icon set (duh)

PS. Stats for the oscar:
Cannot be purchased, but value 12,000
Polys - 820
Enviornment: 10
Maybe 1 point of fun & comfort. Not sure if it worked or not. lol.
Sounds good, but IF you get this thing, you'll have earned it!


You may redistribute these files FOR FREE ONLY. I'd be glad for someone to put these files on other FREE sites - I made them to be enjoyed. Just please if you do, send me an email and let me know where so I can keep track for updating purposes. (check the readme for details)

Finally a big thanks to Modthesims2. The resources here made this possible. Thanks!

I am most suitably impressed- it's not every day you see this sort of career come up Just a little question- does the clothing and reward belong to you, or were they created by another creator? If they were, it's always advisable to add a little link to the original post, so people can read what the object does, the poly count etc.

P.S. It will work with other EP's installed

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate

Good question Superfly. All content is original. The clothing is just recolored Maxis stuff and the Oscar is 100% original - mesh and all. (I had to make the oscar twice because the first time I crashed my comp and lost it. lol) Just for reference the oscar is 820 polys.

This sounds very ambitious, but i would like to see a screenshot of the uniforms and in particular the job-icon, it has to look maxis-autenthic for me to want to download it.

Thanks everyone. Let me know if you've got any troubles. Simathome: I've added some more pictures for you. They're not in-game, but that's just because I don't want to go find my DVD again.

Love it! Yay! Can't wait to try this one out!

Just a question, any chance you could do a similar thing but with a Grammy? I know there's a stack of musical careers out there, but they don't appear as comprehensive or have the custom reward object as yours - just curious is all.

Brilliant! Thanks again!

Ravynlee, I'll look into the possibility of doing a music career with a grammy. Maybe if I'm feeling ambitious I'll do a whole set: oscar, grammy, emmy, & tony...

...well I made a grammy. It was trickier than the oscar. lol. Now I just have to put together some sort of a career.

Just wanted to update and say that I've gotten the chance to play this-- you're right, it is *quite* hard, and I like it even more now. This'll give me the chance to get those annoying sims out of the house for longer. Incidentally, it works with FFS, if anybody cares. *shrug*
#22 Old 13th Jun 2006 at 4:35 PM
Hey, does this overight anything? Please let it be no, I want to download this, but never download any careers that overwrite maxis ones.

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...
