Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have you ever wanted Kaylyn Langrek to have the proper job when you move her in? Ever had your Sim ask the gardener or pizza delivery person to be their roommate but were disappointed to find that there was no job available for them that matched their NPC status? Well with the NPC Career Mega Pack 2 you don't have to worry about that anymore.

They do not overwrite any of the default careers as they come with their own unique GUIDs.



This has been a long time in the making. After I finished Pack 1 I just kind of lost interest in creating and playing. So I took a break and have finally finished my second batch of the NPC careers. I'm working on the third pack as well. I ask again, if you notice any spelling mistakes please let me know and I will fix and re-upload ASAP. All the levels for each career have the same name, description, outfit and carpool. The only things that change are the pay, skills, friends and days.



All the careers have custom icons and they came directly from in game icons. The jobs that can be used with just the base game are; Delivery, Private School, Nanny and Bill Collections. Animal control can as well but I don't see a point if you don't have Pets. Food Judge needs Free Time. Massage and Tourism need Bon Voyage. Matchmaker and Restaurant need Nightlife. There are no chance cards for any of them.





I decided to choose the mayor outfit for the Headmaster/mistress because the original outfit is only for elder males. This looks pretty much the same.

I put all the careers into one zip file but they are seperate files and you can choose which to install.

Hope you enjoy these! Happy simming!

Hm, nanny outfit wonky? Do you happen to have any clothes recategorization mods that make the outfit not-everyday? I know clothes have to be everyday (or everyday and something else) to work properly as career outfits. If that's not it, then would it be something in the career file itself, do you think, or something borked in the EA files?

Thanks for this and looking forward to pack 3 when you have time and inclination.

Nope, they're in every day. I happen to actually like the outfit, lol. It can't be the career file as all my careers came from the same template, so they'd all the same problem. The handy person outfit has the same problem. I tested in a clean game (both) trying to fix the problem. I'm assuming EA wonkiness but I could be wrong. I'm thinking it's because they're from the base game.

Hmm i don´t like the icons, i prefere authentic blue ones, i know of a guy who makes great ones but i can´t remember his name right now, don´t know if he´s still around even as it was a while since i was last here. But on the matter of chance-cards i might be persuaded to write those if i just get to know the guidelines, I.E how long they should be, for who and anything else i need to know, as long as it does´nt require me to download some kind of program. Hit me up if your interested, and you know how to make chance-cards that is.

Thanks for the offer but I never use chance cards anyway so that's why my careers have none. As to the icons, they come from in game so I didn't see a point in changing them to blue, you are welcome to do whatever you like to these careers for your own purposes though.

Wish I could help but I don't play TS2 anymore. It's not even on my computer, I uninstalled back in May. Likewise I don't have SimPE anymore to edit my files. If I ever go back to TS2 I'll look into it but that could be years. Sorry.

Because I don't play anymore I'm not modding anymore. I would think you do need Nightlife though because of the outfit. I could be wrong. It's been months since I've played these.
