Arrr, so why be thar all these pirate clothes in t' Sims 2 when nay is thar a pirate career? That's t' question, ain't it, ye scurvy dog!

Well, now you can put them to good use with this teen and adult pirate career. This is EP compatible and won't overwrite any existing careers. There aren't any chance cards yet, but there will be the next version if this tests okay. As with my Mafia career, most of the levels are very loosely based on actual ranks onboard a pirate ship. Here they are:

TEEN
1. Stowaway ($100)
2. Deck Swabber ($150)
3. Cabin Boy ($200)

ADULT
1. Ships Cook ($125)
2. Sailmaker ($254)
3. Carpenter ($325)
4. Gunner ($406)
5. Navigator ($455)
6. Boatswain ($523)
7. Quartermaster ($786)
8. First Mate ($1121)
9. Pirate Captain ($2928)
10. Legendary Pirate ($4168)

Sounds good, but don't you think the pay is a bit high?

Arrrr, don't ye be questionin' the size of yer booty, ye land lubber!

Ahem. Sorry. Too much pirate-talk for one day. The pay is about the same as most of the Maxis-made careers aside from the last couple, but I figured, y'know, legendary pirates must be rolling in it. And it's certainly no higher than the graduate careers.

Although the adult part of this career doesn't seem to overwrite any other career, the pirate-teen does overwrite another custom career--starfleet teen. Just so you know!

Kudos to you for making this, but the chance cards don't work... which I don't really care about. Just thought I'd mention it.

This file seems to be missing. I get the following message:

Is there any chance it could be reuploaded? Also, have the chance cards been fixed?

One Piece!!!!!!Yes, your career is perfect for my One Piece's characters!:D
I just wondered what was the difference between sailmaker and carpenter...(I'm french...^^)
Boatswain seems to be lower captain...doesn't it?
Good job!

I have the base game only. I downloaded it last night and it's working great in my pirate legacy. My founder was in the Criminal career and when he quit that job as a Bookie, your pirate career started him out as a Gunner with just a slight difference in pay. Thanks for creating and sharing it.
