Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
an alternative scifi career for your simmies!
from simple desk clerk to MIB - how far will your simmies go?

no custom uniforms for this one as maxis black suits are used
this career has a custom aspiration reward which is katys "alien sparking" from www.pc-sims.de which i used with her permission

the path is as follows:

Level 1 - receptionist
Everybody has to start at the bottom. And this is it! At least you get to look at the documents of other people working with aliens. You work Mon - Fri. 9am-5pm and earn $150 per day

Level 2 - apprentice sky watcher
It may seem a little boring but imagine if you did see something out there! You now work Mon – Fri 8pm – 5am and earn $225 per night

Level 3 - local alien agent
Not as glamorous as it sounds, your duties are now working with the local alien detection agency and visiting possible alien children. You now work Mon – Thurs 9am – 5pm and earn $400 per day

Level 4 - rumor control
At last the government has announced to you that aliens do in fact exist! Your duties now are to stop everyone else finding out! You now work Tues to Sat 11am – 6pm and earn $550 per day

Level 5 - Pregnant male examiner
With current reports of male pregnancies flooding in left right and center “the organization” have appointed you as a male pregnancy expert. You now work Tues – Fri 12n – 5pm and earn a whopping $700 per day in “hush money”

Level 6 - research agent
It has been declared that we need to know more about these creatures … are they planning an invasion or do they just want to be friends as they claim? Up to you to find out! You now earn £$1000 per day and work Tues, Thurs and Friday from 9am – 4pm

Level 7 - extraterrestrial interpreter
After being the first sim to make verbal contact with the alien race “the organization” has voted you as their representative. Your sole duties are corresponding with these other worldly visitors. You now work Wed – Fri 12n – 4pm and earn $1500 per day

Level 8 – Sim in black
After all your slogging away for "the organization” you are now one of its leading agents … there cant be much further up this ladder to go! You now earn $1700 per day and work Mon – Tues and Fri from 10am – 1pm


Level 9 - interplanetary agent
Someone was needed to travel off world to the alien colony – your name was pulled out of the hat! Good luck! You now work 3pm – 5pm on Friday and Saturday and earn $2100 per day

Level 10 - government official in charge of alien activities.
At last you’ve reached the top of your career! Put your feet up and relax as you now only work 1pm – 2pm on Mon and Tues and earn $3000 per day

This looks great! I notice that the higher position, the less time it takes to work(by an hour), which is a reward in itself, I suppose.

Hey Emma,

A great career, but I've found that when you get promoted the promotion blurb doesn't come up and you don't get your bonus. My Sim is still getting his daily pay, and that does go up ok, it's just the promotion bit that doesn't work.

Very nice! I have to test it still. I know how troublesome it is to make a career (how long it takes just to plan and lay-out the career options, chance cards, etc.), but I tend not to download careers (no matter how good they are) if their icons don't look good. Could you please provide a screenshot of the career icon?

Cuteness! I just watched MIB for the bazillionth time the other night. This is a very sweet career you've made. It took me about thirteen readings for me to understand the sentence structure in the second screenshot, but my addled brain finally caught up.
I'm excited to try it out! Thanks!
Always,
Emma

Could someone please tell me if it overwrites anything? I will not download a custom career unless there are guid specifications. Thank you.

Hi Emma,

I tried to test your career, but I got by accepting the job the following error message: Error: You sent me a crappy GUID, please fix it.

I still tooked the job for my guy and he went to work. His first day at work, and when he came home with the first promotion, I got the same error message and the guy didn't got payed at all.

I tried it with a new character, but after taking the job the error message came up again and I changed the job.

I have all expansions packs but not that small fun pack crap from Maxis.

Log entries from the error messages are in the rar file and I hope it will help us to fix something, because I like an unsual carrer like this one.

This seems to be a pretty nicely written career --the chancecards as shown in the screencaps seem pretty cool --but it would be even nicer if:

1. the work hours for the last 3 levels were a little more believeable, even in a make-believe world. (Seriously, does anyone think Agent J, K, or Z earn their paychecks by working 3 hours or less per day?? ) I believe it's okay to increase their salaries (to a certain extent), but the hours? *sucks breath in through teeth* I seriously hope you'll consider adding maybe 2, or better yet, 3 more hours per work day for the last 3 levels.

2. you could indicate clearly whether a new GUID was used, Group ID was fixed, etc. I'm guessing you did, seeing as you wrote a beginner's tutorial on creating custom careers, but I also believe in indicating so clearly in the topic post, as it would give users ease of mind to download and use this hack;

3. an picture of the career icon were uploaded.

I understand there are some new careers submitted lately where the hours are ludicrously short (to nonexistent) , the salaries are through the roof , and the odds of getting a bad outcome from chance cards are 0. I chose not to post on those threads, as I believe they are lost causes.

I'm having a really weird problem with this career. The days it says in the blurbs that the Sim works are not the same as the days highlighted, or the times either. So I keep getting messages that my sim is late for work, or has missed work on days or times that the carpool doesn't even show up.

Sounds fun, mmh...sim "Esmé Zurich enjoys everyday activties like any other sim in Pleasantview; gardening, dancing, yoga but it's not what it looks like she works for a secret organization." It's getting me excited! Thanks a million for this.
