Hi Guys

This career starts at the top and as you get promoted the daily wage goes down. I thought it would be an interesting idea so I made it, and it's a waste not to upload it really, so if your curiosity is piqued, here you go!
Also, I made it difficult to get promoted beyond level one so if you just want your sim to earn bucketloads of cash... :P

All chance cards are included, it's got it's own guid etc, it's ep ready but shouldn't require them. I have tested it in my game but if it's not working for you please let me know, I might be able to tweak it a bit.

So here are the levels:

Level One: Big Spender, $2500, 0900-1300 Mon-Thurs
You are one of the most prominent figures in Simcity, and no restaurant feels valid until you have eaten there at least twice. As such, you need the money to support your profile. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Level Two: Charity Diner, $2200, 1900-2300 Thurs-Sat
It’s not a charity dinner unless you’re there. And what a lifestyle! You spend your time relaxing at luxurious parties, all in aid of needy children or other worthy causes. There is no reason to feel guilty at all! Unless...maybe...you get promoted!

Level Three: Trendy HousePartier, $2000, 1800-0000 Fri-Sat
The high life is still yours, but now you have to contend with little sticky fingers. Balance your responsibilities, and you may find yourself on holiday sooner than you think.

Level Four: Overseas Vacationer, $1700, 0700-1500 Mon-Fri
You are paid to try out pre-packaged holidays, yet you still sleep in your own bed every night. What a way to live!

Level Five: Middleman, $1500, 0900-1700 Mon-Fri
The Rat Race is beginning to catch up with you. The family’s demands are rising and your subordinates at work are biting at your heels. A promotion might provide some relief.

Level Six: Empty Nester, $1300, 1000-1900 Tues-Fri
Whew, you have a bit of breathing space! Your job is yours to do as you will without some manager peering constantly over your shoulder.

Level Seven: Potterer, $1100, 1100-1600 Tues-Sat
You know the ageing artist sometimes seen in the gardens next to the community swimming pool? That’s you, if you like painting. The council has hired you to potter around, wherever you feel the will, to give the community some character.

Level Eight: Roadcone, $800, 0700-1900 Mon-Sat
After all that time pottering, it is nice to finally do something useful! And what could be better than stopping cars crashing into each other at roadworks? It’s a long day but the rewards are worth it.

Level Nine, Early Bedtimer, $550, 1000-1400 Mon-Thurs
Shorter days, less expenses... there are many positive things about going to bed early! Now is your chance. Enjoy the extra sleep!

Level Ten: Hermit, $100, 0800-1200 Wed-Sat
You have reached the top, or rather the bottom, of the UpsideDown Career track. Congratulations! As a hermit you have no need of fancy stuff or expensive furniture. You live happily on very little, and take the time to enjoy the best things in life- the things that come for free.


I hope you enjoy it!

Actually my suggestion leaned more toward strip while pursuing a degree end up as... whatever career you studied I guess (erotic was ViveaRu's suggestion ).


I have nanny npc and mods but as far as I have searched I have yet to find a nanny career. I have many custom careers in my game but no "nanny careers". I have been looking for a while (months) but it's ok "legacy career" works for me now for my npcs' that I made playable. Maybe that can be my first project . Thanks for your help and this great career.

No nanny career? Well I'll keep it in mind. So you want your sims to go out to work as a 'nanny'? or just have a one-hour working day at say midnight so they can actually look after the kids?

Everything is ok in the end. If it's not ok, then it's not the end.

A hooker career, huh? I'm not sure it would be appropriate, or that I'd want to make it. I'll think about it, and maybe ask the moderators. Thankyou for your suggestion though!


Thats a great idea!

Thanks for the response I've only just seen this today. Yes believe me I've searched for months and zilch. Google seaches only point to my comment here .

Actually both would be nice but the second one would be great.

Full Career idea:

I was thinking the full career could start somewhere at diaper-pail scrubber at a daycare facility and end with something like Celebrity Nanny/Nanny to the stars. I wouldn't mind helping with ideas for writing the level descriptions and challenges etc, but I haven't a clue as to how to use simpe.


Or

Nanny Career title: World Class Nanny (hrs:12am-12am or 12am-1am):

A career such as "World Class Nanny" that starts at midnight and ends at midnight or 1 am would be perfect. That way my self-assigned nannies would be able to satisfy the job want, have a titled career, keep their jobs with the families they already work for and be free to play however I like when I'm at their homelots. Would you be willing to do this one?

Thanks a bunch for considering it.

Sure, it wouldn't take long at all if all the levels had the same title and hours. Do you want a rising pay scale? Or any pay at all? I can put in skills necessary for promotion if you want something of a challenge, but without different pay rates it doesn't really mean anything. There's also working days...you want them to only go to work once a week?

Chance cards are easy to create once they're written but I don't have much time to write them at the moment. If you write something feel free to send it to me and I'll throw it in. However you need two choices, then a pass and fail result for both. Although sometimes I cheat and all results are good...lol.

Let me know

Actually the best solution is the one hour or zero hour working day. It's the one most suitable for my game. Most of my nannies (NPCs or former NPCs) are already employed--they just don't get credit and have the annoying job wants even though they show up for work every time.

The Nanny Career title: "World Class Nanny" or "Sim City Nanny agency" (hrs:12am-12am or 12am-1am):

would be perfect. The work week would be Sun-Fri & the salary as 1800 works too. Just one title no other levels--really nothing that would make it tough on you. This just rounds out the lives of my nannies that are employed already. Would you mind doing this one?

I can tell both of our plates are full but I'll try to check back next week if you have any questions. Thanks a bunch.





P.S.
If you would still consider doing the second one as well I'll ponder the idea over the next month or so since the full career also sounds great for a few of my unemployed sims. I really like the idea but would want to put some thought and come up with some interesting challenges /results. I'll put some thought into those and (if it's ok with you) let you know (via pm?) when I have them ready. There's no rush and I really appreciate you considering the ideas.

So, let me get this straight: World Class Nanny, 12am - 1am Sunday through Friday, pay 1800/day, and no promotions/chance cards.

And sure, a PM would be fine. :D

I think this is a great idea! It's kinda Buddhist in a way... the Sim living the "good life" and then realizing, as they progress, that it's pretty superficial and not really "good" after all. That's probably not what you had in mind when you made this career, but I think it's pretty philosophical and rewarding! :D
