This is a bit off-topic...but I'd like to EDIT a career (like rename some jobs in a career), and I have no idea where to find the career object files! I have Bidou's Career Editor, but I have no idea what package files contain the careers.

I want to edit a couple of careers that came with Seasons. I've been hunting through the Seasons files.

Damn! XD
I was a bit quick reading this tutorial through, so I thought I was going to need 100 chance cards, 10 for each level!
Im at number four level 1 and it was killing me already, LOL, so thank heaven I decided to read this once more!

But Im going to start over again, and then hopefully learn to upload my careers here

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I'm currently using it to make several custom careers that will be available here on MTS2. I'll link to this thread in the descriptions as well so that anyone who downloads will know how awesome you are!

I swear I've searched all over creation for this, and I can't find the answer. I'm sorry if it's already been asked and answered a million times.

In Bidou's career editor, when entering money rewards for chance cards, does 1=1 or 1,000... or something else? In my own testing it seems to be inconsistent (one of my downloaded careers has a "reward" of -400 and took my Sim down to 0 from ~800,000, one has a reward of 5,000 that did indeed give 5,000). If 1 does equal 1,000, is it okay to use decimals to give rewards less than $1,000?

Thank you so much, anyone who replies.

Neat tutorial, I was recently creating a career, followed the instructions, and was successful in making the texts appears in-game. Encountered the issue of only 9 out of 10 chance card slots occuring, but Bidou's Career Editor did the job of fixing that.

My question is about the chance cards, and I haven't found the answer to it yet.

How can I edit the probability of a result to appear after the chance card is displayed?

For example, first we have the scenario, it asks which two of the results to choose, or ignore. Say I choose Chance A. There's a good or bad result that occurs. How do I edit Chance A so that good or bad results appear 50% of the time for either? Or 40% probabiliy of good result occuring, 60% probability of bad result occuring? Etc.?

I may seem like a bit of a dork here, but I hope someone will help me. I'll be short: I downloaded the newest version of simPE, but I've never used it before (I downloaded it for this purpose only). I downloaded Emma's template, and I unpacked it with winRAR. I went into simPE, chose "file" and then "open", and I chose the template. When I do that I get a series of pop-ups, saying that the type of file caused an error. The whole SimPE window is empty, except for the menus of course. The template is a DBPF package file, by the way. I hope someone can help me. Please send your answer in a PM, or send me a PM with a notification about your answer if it's in the forum, I never check back to forums for answers, so please, send me a PM.

I have another question too; The template, is that for an English career? I would like to make my job available for downloading, but do I need to translate it to all languages, or does it do that by it self? Do I have to write the chance cards in English? If I do, will it be available only in English? Again, please send me a PM, I do not check back to forums.

Thanks in advance

Default Sort need some help!
First of all thanks for this tutorial but somethings, I think, aren't explained very well. I am a total complete beginner to this and that is why I am probably a bit slow. I will list the things I don't really get. (Please PLEAASE! Look over these!)

Qoute 1
"male 1 title
male 1 description
male 2 title
male 2 description through to ten and then the same with female!"

If I was making a Doctor career would I write:
male 1 Nurse
Male 1 you are now a nurse! well down etc, etc, etc.
male 2 Best Nurse
male 2 well done you are so fantastic at being a nurse etc, etc, etc

(I am normally write better than this but I'm just trying to be quick!)

and so on and so on then write ones for females?


Quote 2

Start with all the chance A good results and work your way down the list, this can get confusing so Ill go through it with you for the first one

If on your list level 5 chance card option A good was a bonus of $50 then type 50 in 0x1 dec box and then if level 4 chance card option A good was a bonus of $500 then type 500 into 0x5 dec box and so on

Do this for all the chance card A good files (remembering that skill points are in multiples of 100) and then move on to chance card A bad files. This is exactly the same but remember to put a minus symbol ( - ) in front of the number.

I slightly understand this better than the first, but what if I wanted to add a skill point or a job level or minus a skill point or job level? How do I this?


Sorry if I sound a bit snobby and ungrateful. I am truly thankful for this tutorial and would be so happy if you could help me. I just have one last request, would it be possible you could create a video how this is done?

Thanks again, Matt

If you download the latest SimPE, it comes with Bidou's Career Editor (found under the Tools menu). It has a GUI that makes editing the career much easier.

But in case you can't use that, re. part 1 yes, you enter all the male titles and descriptions for levels 1-10 then all the female ones. Re. part 2, to set the chance card results, find the Behavior Constants called "Tuning - Chance - A - Good - [Money/Job Level/etc.]" You'll see lines 1-10 where you enter the value (remember each skill level = 100) So for example, if the good outcome if the user chooses option B for the level 5 chance card is gain 2 body skill points, you'd click on Tuning - Chance - B - Good - Body and go to line 0x5 (5) and for the Value, enter 100 in the Dec box (or 0x0064 in the hex box, which equals 100). And then you enter all the bad results too. Each combination of A/B, Good/Bad, and skill/money/job level has its own instance in which you enter the results for all 10 career levels.

I hope that helps!

if its not opening with SimPE maybe it corrupted when you downloaded it? try re-downloading!

I do not understand this at ALL because SimPE looks VERY different to me. Why can't I just edit the text comfortably in the first window that opens? (as in the one that shows the text and the earnings and so on) It would be WAY easier. Sorry if this was asked already but I don't have any time nor motivation to read through 420 pages. My problem is mostly that I can't find any German carrers otherwise I wouldn't attempt to make own carrers because the English ones do not work in my Sims

If you're trying to create brand new custom careers, then they need to be new objects with unique GUIDs. However, if you just want to change the German text on existing careers, that should be a much simpler operation. In that case, I would expect that you could open the existing careers, find the text, and add the German translation.
