Cricket Career For Teens/Elders

So, once again I have failed to complete the adult version of a career that I made for a monthly theme in time to upload it before the end of the month.... :-( But I hope that somebody will still enjoy this Cricket career for teens and elders. I'm still working on the levels for the adult career - I've pretty much finished work for the summer now (I work in a school, it was our pupils' last day today! :-D) so I hope to be able to upload it (and the adult Bushcraft and Seaside Worker careers, and my "more realistic" Maxis/EA careers, and some other things I've been working on) during August! Yay for the summer holidays!

Please leave a comment or hit the Thanks button if you download this career! If you encounter any problems, or find any grammar/spelling errors please let me know by leaving a comment.

This career has its own unique GUID, and so shouldn't overwrite anything in your game. It will eventually link to my cricket career for adults, so that your teens will continue in the career when they age up (provided that you download that career from here when I upload it). It is EP compatible, and has 3 chance cards (i.e. one per level). It also has a custom icon, which is attached above.

This career was inspired by my Dad, who was a keen cricketer when he was younger and actually got his first proper job in part because the company wanted him to play for their cricket team! :-) Cricket is a traditional sport here in the UK, so I decided that it worked well for the theme.

The levels for this version are as follows:

School Team Cricketer $75, MTWTF, 3pm - 6pm, promotion requirements: 2 body skill points, 1 family friend

You play cricket for your school team. Most of your time is spent focussing on your education, but you really do love playing cricket - maybe it's something you could continue to do in the future?

Local Cricketer $50, MTWTF, 3pm - 7pm, promotion requirements: 1 charisma skill point, 1 more body skill point, 1 more family friend

You're just an amateur, playing for your local team, and you only get paid for your expenses, but you really enjoy cricket - and winning, which your team does on a regular basis, now that you're playing with them!

Under 21's County Cricketer $100, TTFSS, 3pm - 7pm

Your talent has been noticed and you're playing for your county now! You receive a small salary, because cricket takes up so much of your time - and playing for your county will really get you noticed, which could mean a professional career in cricket when you're older!

I hope that you all enjoy this career as much as I've enjoyed creating it! I'm not sure when the adult version will be available, but it should be some time in August.... :-)

Lientebollemeis already has a cricketer career, which I'm now trying. It does have some problems: The higher levels are Aussie-oriented and the starting level earns no simoleans until Saturday.

I have some teens coming on, so I'll try this career with them, but I'll be looking forward to your adult career - and lay proper English claim to the Ashes!
