Uses only base game features; compatible with EPs
Patch version: 1.52.100 (June 2019 patch)

My Sims have way too many kids, so I was desperate for part-time careers. Someone suggested part-time versions of the pre-made careers, which I thought was brilliant. It's simple; consistent with in-game experience; the balance of salary, skills, etc. is fool-proof. This one is my first: a part-time version of the base game Astronaut career.

Job titles and career tracks are the same as in the base game. Per-hour salaries are the same, so Sims will make about half as much per day. The skill requirements are almost identical, but there are no task requirements. The hours are simply cut in half. The schedule is about the same (start time and days), but they’ll work e.g. 12pm-4pm, instead of 12pm-8pm.
Salary range: §26/h (Intern) - §442/h (Space Ranger) or §413/h (Interstellar Smuggler)
Work schedule: Shifts are 3 to 5 hours long, mostly 4. They are scheduled for late morning or early afternoon, except for the Smuggler track.

This career will bring you to the same awe-inspiring places as the full-time Astronaut Career, but it requires only half the hours.

Let me know if you have suggestions about the schedule, salaries, or anything else – I’ll try to incorporate them into the next ones! So far I've done part-time versions of: Astronaut, Criminal, Tech Guru, Writer. I'm just hoping for some feedback on this one before finalising them.
