How To: Linking Your Custom Career To Maxis Majors
Echo has discovered for us how to link custom careers to maxis majors! (Go hit one of her thanks buttons!) She has also determined that without a bunch of global rewriting, we can't link custom majors to the maxis jobs, so please don't ask us.
Open up your custom career. Learn how to make one here.

The third line is what you need to edit. Decide which majors you want to provide a boost for your career and add up their values from the table below. Input this number into the Decimal Value. Hit Commit, and Save!

If you want your career to require that sims go to college, edit the middle line. 0x0000 is no college required and a value of 0x07FF makes college required and the career becomes only available to college graduates.
We've also learned that the specific linking really doesn't work so well, so the only really useful stuff in this How-To is how to make your career require a degree or not. Careers that require degrees are not specific to which degree your sim gets.
Sorry, that can't be done. The best you can do is make sure you clone your Major and your Career from ones that are already linked. They *should* continue to be linked. Fortunately though, this is all rather a moot point as the linking doesn't actually do anything! Though, you can have it requiring a degree or not.
Probably not, I'm really rather busy. I take it the one I already made isn't quite what you had in mind?
If you do get up the courage to poke around in SimPE, open up the one I made and just change the BCON 0x1056 lines to be what you want them to be (as listed above). Making an edit of someone else's mod is usually a good place for a beginner to start. Just remember to save it as a different name when you are done.
