These are the Natural Scientist, Artist, Paranormal, and Show Business careers from University with altered hours to allow vampires to hold these jobs more comfortably. No level of any career has a start time any earlier than 8:00 pm (so the carpool will not arrive before 7) and all levels have end times no later than 6:00 am. I also changed any obvious references to daytime in the chance cards.

Like my vampire friendly base game careers , I did not do any wholesale rewriting of chance cards or level descriptions, so there is a certain amount of unrealism (is that a word?) in these careers, for example: an actor or director who only works at night. Of course, as I stated in the post for the vampire base game careers, the Maxis careers are fairly unrealistic to begin with in that they have nurses being promoted to doctors and so forth. Anyway, if you can accept these little departures from reality as far as what people do at night, these careers should be fine for you.

These careers are entirely separate from the original careers that they are based on. If you put them all in your game, you will end up with two copies of each career: the original and the vampire version (clearly marked, see the screenshot). I recommend only putting in the ones you want a vampire in so that you won't end up with an overabundance of careers to filter through when you're trying to get a particular job for your sim.

These careers do require University since the rewards are University objects and a sim will need to have graduated college to get into one of these just like the original version.

Here's a screenshot:


I hope all you vampire lovers out there enjoy these.

Thanks, Its realy annoying when your vampires are trying to escape outside but are being burned to death (And Exessive use of 'maxmotives' won't keep them alive forever!)

Thanks!! (My vampires will be thanking you lots too! XD)

Thank you very much.
I didn't know that young adults can be vampires, because teens can't, but I'll check it out!

I'm glad you both like these. Thanks for the compliments.

Young adults can be vampires (or at least they can in my game and I don't think it's the result of any hack that I have), but that's irrelevant to these careers since as far as I know, young adults can't hold jobs.

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.

Teens can be vampires, just only if they mess with the wrong one.
On another subject, I hate to tell you this, but someone already did this:

Well, it looks like I am just doomed to duplication. When I looked at his post after it had been mentioned in my basegame vampire careers post, I didn't notice that he had done the University careers as well. Once again, mine (while nearly identical) are slightly different in that I did do some minor edits on career level descriptions and chance cards while he just changed the hours. However, that being said, I didn't mean to duplicate his work. If I had realized it had been done, I wouldn't have done it. Well, you know, third time's the charm, so maybe when I do the Seasons careers it will be something totally new.

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.
