This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
Is your Sims 2 dog-shaving business taking off too fast? Are your OFB employees using the excuse: "Sorry, I was stuck in road tar?"
Well, it might be global warming.

In fact, the "inconvenient truth" of the matter is that, with the Sims 2 Seasons expansion pack just out, your Sims can/will be affected by changes in climate, even including death by heatstroke!

Your college-age Sims may be the last hope for the planet -- download this major so they will be informed and prepared for the changes to come!
ALL YOU NEED IS THE UNIVERSITY EXPANSION PACK to enjoy this major............

The courses of this major are:
Semester 1 - Why Strangetown is becoming oceanfront property

Semester 2 - How to add Neighborhood levees in Build Mode

Semester 3 - Greenhouse effects of Sims flatulence

Semester 4 - The depletion of rain forests as Neighborhood terrain type

Semester 5 - White Rabbit Blower bubbles and the Ozone layer

Semester 6 - Meltdown: Sims fruit punch barrels to be out of "party ice" by 2017

Semester 7 - The Sims 2 Seasons: Sunburn and fatal Heatstroke

Semester 8 - The Sims 2 Seasons: The Weather Control device

Original GUID: 0x002BA809 (won't overide other majors)
Original Earth-like icon: looks great in-game!
Linked careers are: Politics, Show Business, and Business (as a tribute to Al Gore and the Oscars).

Bonus: I modified this major to give your Sims a Hygiene boost every time they go to class!
I also made all the classes take place from 3-5 p.m. only!

Thanks to the folks at SimPE, and FrikaC, whose Majors Made Easier is needed for all the majors you'd download today!

"Thanks you's" and comments are appreciated.

P.S. - Look on the bright side.....at least the Pizza delivered to your Sims will actually be hot! - Pontiac1979

Yep sure ! Poor planet. Tomorrow I will shut off all my electrical stuff (with the computer too ) between 19h55 and 20h00 (7.55 PM to 8h00 PM I guess). Thank you Pontiac for this special major.

Thanks for downloading, SharpeiVampire!


I believe the tentative release dates for Seasons is between February 27 and March 28th, according to EA Games estimates. Pre-orders are being taken right now at stores and on-line.

I hope people don't think they need Sims 2: Seasons to use this ----
because it's just like any other university major I've done.

Global warming- it's really annoying ya'know, 'cos while the rest of the world warms up and enjoys the benefits of a year-long suntan, Britain may very well freeze over! Not particulary fair, is it? Still, at least it'll allow me to use my ample collection of thick socks, oversized coats and inch thick jumpers. Thanks for the major, and for reminding me to buy that collapsible lifeboat before the global warming rush!

Ah, Gobal Warming. I'm not sure if you actually care or if your making fun of how silly (and false) the whole thing is. I'd like to think of it as the latter. Either way entertaining semester name and good download.

Great idea, more people should be aware of the world's current state. I'm not too happy about the Polar Bear picture you have posted in your listing though, that really makes me feel bad about the bear and the other plants and life in the world. I'd appreciate it if you'd replace the picture with something that doesn't have animals in it. Thanks.

Please list the expantion packs/stuff packs needed for your downloads and give credit where it's due. It does make a difference.

FoxyPink, I totally agree with you - it was starting to depress me, too.
That's the kind of feedback I sometimes need to hear, check out my other majors and let me know what you think.

Very true. It makes me sad and frusterated the people who think its just a joke and a hoax. Something needs to change quickly before we destroy our planet. Youd think something which could have such a huge impact on us personally would get the concern of even those of us who only have concern for ourselves. Very good major. Thankyou!

(the polar bear should stay, as the truly cold areas are the first ones to REALLY suffer when the Greenhouse Effect kicks in with its full force)

That is a fantastic idea, thankyou very much for this download! The problem is, that until a truly devasting event happens, the world is going to carry on happy as larry. It's our own ignorance that is causing it. I know that everybody thinks about it a lot. But we can't just think, we've got to start DOING! I also agree with you SuperFly! Us Britain'ers will be frozen, more than usual!

marymack, if you don't believe global warming is real, take a trip to Anartica.

Thanks for this wonderful true to life major.
