Ready to hit the high seas for adventure? Then send your Sims to work and school as Pirates. This upload includes Full Time and Part Time Pirate careers as well as a Custom High School and even a Custom Elementary School for future Cabin Boys (and Girls).

To make it even better, High School and Elementary School students will be paid an hourly wage. After all, they are working now. Might as well give them their due.

All careers / Schools except Part Time have Opportunities.

Barnacle Bay is not required for this career (I know someone is going to ask, lol)

Rabbit Hole for all Pirate schools and careers: Restaurant
(more info on this below)

Uniform: There are no uniforms for the careers. Adult and Part-Time will go to work in their everyday clothes. High School and Elementary School will use NRaas Story Progression to change into their Formal wear (see below for more info on this).

The Pirate Careers and Schools require that Twallan's NRAAS Career mods be installed or it will not work
Link: http://www.the-isz.com/nraas/index.php?board=4.0
Mods: Careers, Careers Modules, StoryProgression
StoryProgression menu options:
General Options / Careers / Private School Fee - allows the player to set a fee for private schools, however if the school pays the student the fee will not apply. So your Art student will be charged Tuition, but her Pirate school brother will not pay tuition because he will earn an hourly wage.
General Options/ Careers / Private School Formalwear - changes the Sim into formalwear before going to school. You can then adjust the formalwear outfit to match the private school - in this case, pirate outfits!

Game Requirements
The Nraas Careers, Careers Modules and Story Progression will run on base game provided it is fully patched.
SP's and EP's are optional

1. So far there is no way to stop the homework requirement - so students still have homework
2. The idea is that the HS is 4 hours long so the students can get a Pirate Part Time job and earn experience that will land them a higher level position when they grow up and join the Pirate Career.
3. Anyone can have a Pirate Part Time job. So your elder, YA or Adult, or even Art School student can be a pirate part time. The experience will apply to the Adult full-time career if they decide to transfer.

Optional (as in NOT Required) Pirate stuff to make the career more fun:

Pirate clothes -
Buccaneer's Bounty (pay) http://store.thesims3.com/setsProdu...ategoryId=12665
EsmeraldaF Pirate Hat (free): http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=387285
EsmeraldaF Eyepatch (free): http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=386926

Build Mode (use the Restaurant rug or door to create your own custom Pirate hideout) -
Raven Shadow Rabbit hole replacements (Restaurant): http://www.modthesims.info/d/435107

Worlds -
Barnacle Bay - (it has a Restaurant rabbit hole shaped like a pirate ship) (pay): http://store.thesims3.com/barnacleBay
If you want Barnacle Bay please get it from the Sims 3 main site, please don't reinforce EA's bad marketing practices by purchasing the empty box from a store.

Rabbit Hole Notes:
1. If you have Barnacle Bay World click on the Pirate Ship Restaurant and your Sim can join the school or career at that location.
2. Otherwise, the career is located at the normal Restaurant Rabbit hole. After all, pirates always get together where there's food and drink, right?
3. There is no "Tavern" rabbit hole so the Restaurant is the next best choice.
4. You can create your own Pirate themed Restaurant using Raven Shadows Rabbit hole replacements (See link above)
