Do You Use Custom Careers?
#1 04-10-2011 
Out of all the various types of custom content that is out there the one I have never even considered using was the custom careers that many people have made. I don't even know why, but I guess the Maxis made ones kept me content.

So I ask the community: Do you use custom careers and if so any you can recommend? Link me to as well would be great! Big Grin

Hmm, I also never use Custom Careers. I have thought of making one (it is not hard to do a basic one) but I think my sim has the career he asks for in his LTW and then thats it. Because we can't follow our sims to work or influence them in anyway then I think careers are just not seen as significant.

I do know that the superfly careers on MTS are apparently very good, and Phaenoh did a great fairytale career.

You know I run a medieval hood so if I don't have them farm, fish or raise babies, I don't really have any career to give them so I almost always chose "happily unemployed' by jphill11.

I did tried one once but decide it was just as easy to use the Maxis careers, ditto to what Lee said. "Because we can't follow our sims to work or influence them in anyway then I think careers are just not seen as significant." Just something else to take up space in the download folder.

That is an excellent link from Nonni though - I never thought of that. want slots filled by wanting a job is something I only see at the beginning though.

* levini checks for oily marks and instead finds a bloody wrench
Uhh Lee is this bloody wrench supposed to be there ? And if so is it the spam protection system we have?

I've had sims who at some point wanted to quit their job, and then later started rolling job wants again. I've also had sims where *I* found it necessary for them to quit their jobs; they sometimes still pester me with those wants.

Is that all? You make it sound like that's nothing! But that's only the ZIP file...
The extracted .package files are over 500KB each, and there's two for each career! For a career that's made up of only a special title and icon in the Sim's Job panel, and that requires no chance cards, payments, cars or work clothing, I think over 1 MB is a WAAAY too much!

Edited to add: after looking into it, I was able to reduce all the .package files to less than 20KB each. Now THAT's more like it!
