This download is part of the The Ancients Creator Challenge
NOTE: MAKE SURE TO DOWNLOAD ALL FILES BELOW (SEE NOTE ABOUT 8/3/07 UPDATE FOR WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE CAREER REWARD) AND PLACE THEM IN YOUR DOWNLOADS FOLDER OR THE CAREER WON'T WORK PROPERLY.

UPDATE: 12/23/2008
While working on my carpool replacements recently I discovered a problem with the hansom carpool, it and the rickshaw were interfering with each other, causing the hansom to use the rickshaw's mesh. I fixed the problem and uploaded a new hansom carpool. If you have downloaded this before, you should download the new carpool below and replace the previous hansom carpool with it. If you are downloading this for the first time, use the new hansom carpool instead of the one in fighter carpools.rar.


UPDATE: 8/3/2007
I was made aware of a problem with the career reward for my espionage career that also applies to this one. While both the punching bag for the warrior career and the punching bag for the athletic career will appear in the rewards section, the original athletic punching bag was not able to be placed on a lot. I have fixed this problem. People who have already downloaded the career should download the new rar below (Fighter Reward.rar) and replace the original fighter reward with it. People downloading this career for the first time should use the reward in the Fighter Reward.rar instead of the one in the Fighter Career.rar. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm still rather inexperienced at objects.

UPDATE: 7/31/2007
After downloading Numenor's BaseGameStarter and testing in a basegame-only environment, I have discovered that my warrior career is incompatible with the basegame. For those of you that have no expansion packs, the game will crash. Sorry for the inconvenience. I didn't know until today.


This career is based on the Dungeons & Dragons Fighter class with the level titles being pulled (mainly) from the level titles in the old first edition Player's Handbook from way back in 1978. This is the second in my series of careers based on the Dungeons & Dragons classes (more to come!). This is the most ambitious career I've worked on so far, with four custom carpools (meshes used with kind permission from Hexameter), six custom uniforms, and a custom career reward (basically it's the punching bag, altered slightly).

Career Details:
-- Custom Icons (the picture I included is magnified greatly from the actual in-game icons, so if they look fuzzy or uneven, don't worry, they don't look that way in the game)
-- Complete Chance Cards
-- EP Ready
-- Custom Uniforms (all are recolors of basegame outfits, so there should be no compatibility issues)
-- Custom Career Reward (it's the punching bag recolored with a different description, but it does show up in the career rewards as a separate entry)
-- No overwriting of any career that I know of
-- Custom Carpools, listed below:

Hexameter's Ridable Horse
Hexameter's Victorian Coach
Hexameter's Rendezvous Hansom
Hexameter's Rickshaw
Note: I include these links so that you can see where the carpools came from and to give credit to Hexameter for his work. But these are not the carpools. Having his drivable vehicles in your downloads folder will not give you the carpools as well. They are completely separate vehicles that just look exactly the same. They have different GUIDs. The carpools (which are required for the career to work properly) are located in the downloads below in the file called Fighter Carpools.rar. If you want to have, say, the Rendezvous Hansom as both a drivable vehicle and a carpool you must have both packages: Hexameter's drivable one and the carpool version below. This applies equally to all four.

Levels and pay are:
1. Conscript $146
2. Veteran $303
3. Warrior $497
4. Swordsman/Swordswoman $601
5. Hero/Heroine $724
6. Swashbuckler $875
7. Myrmidon $1028
8. Champion $1312
9. Superhero/Superheroine $1987
10. Lord/Lady $2652

Body, Mechanical, and Charisma are the skills needed.

Lots of files in this one, place all of them in your downloads folder. Files are the career, the career reward, six outfits, four uniform templates, four carpools, three custom sound files. I have them split up into three rar files, you will need all three for it to work properly.

As in the Magic career, I based my chance cards on famous characters from movies and books only this time warriors. Can anyone identify the characters I used?

Heres a screenshot:


For the career, uniforms, and reward:
Use these or modify them as you will, but please don't upload to any paysite, even if it's free on the paysite, and please give me credit and send me a link to what you've done with it.

"1: Any houses, furnitures and any jobs i download doesn't work so this one counts too."

I don't understand the nature of your complaint. Are you saying that some other downloads of yours are incompatible with my career? I didn't notice any problems when I tested the career. I don't know why it would interfere with houses in any event.

"2: Check clothes from Rose (www.rosesims2.net) go to download, clothing then swing around the pages to find cool warrior clothes."

I'm sure Rose's stuff is very good, in fact, I'm sure I have some of it in my own game. However, I would need her permission to use her clothes in my career, and I normally try to keep my stuff somewhat self-contained since I have had mixed success in getting permission from creators in the past.

"Cuz those clothes aren't for warriors. Nevermind, can u help me with installing?"

I'm not the best person in the world for making clothes by any means, but I thought I did pretty well. There's chainmail on the outfits and I removed zippers and modern features from the clothes as best I could without changing the mesh (I don't mesh). There are install instructions in the first post, where are you having difficulties?

"It's true? ok then can u try to create a work for FF?"

Yes, it's true. I have created careers by request before. But what is FF? If it stands for Final Fantasy then I don't think I have enough knowledge of the subject to create a career for it.

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.

WinRAR is easily located on the internet and will allow you to extract the files.

I will probably not be creating Final Fantasy specific careers because I don't know enough about the subject to create a decent career based on it. However, I have been creating careers based on Dungeons & Dragons and they might serve as substitutes for some of the ones you've asked for. Fighter for Swordsman, Magic for Mage, etc. I'll probably do a Thief career at some point based on the thief class in D&D, but I don't know when that will be.

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.

Well, if you're having a problem with other creator's items you should probably ask them about it. Maybe they can help you out.

To create careers you will first need a copy of SimPE . Then you should check the Create section on this site. There are lots of tutorials there that can help you. That's how I got started.

I'm guessing you restored one of my files. Thanks. It's been a couple of days since I've logged on so you got to it before I noticed.

Hey there. The overview of this thing is fantastic, especially for my Oblivion themed neighbourhood (thinking of doing an Oblivion themed anything, perhaps? >>; Thought it'd give it a shot at asking...), trouble is I can't seem to get it to work.

Like Ninja before me, with the career properly installed, it freezes at the loading splash. Doesn't even scroll any of the "Reticulating Splines" blah.

I have the Double Deluxe version (Nightlife + Celebration Stuff) as well as University installed, so that clears the expansion factor out.

Was there something I missed in your replies to Ninja that could fix that up? Maybe one of the carpools needed a specific EP like Seasons or something?

#62 Old 24th Oct 2009 at 4:43 PM
Some more compatibility-related information that might help...
I have the Deluxe edition (base game & Nightlife) and nothing else. Of course, when I downloaded this career last year, I didn't realize I needed Uni for it. D'oh. So, the next time I ran the game, it crashed at "Replacing Wheel Bearings," and I figured out it was the custom carpools that were causing the problem. I deleted those files, and then I didn't have access to a computer with a good enough graphics card to run the game until recently. I had forgotten what happened, so when I had a sim in my custom neighborhood take the job, naturally the carpool never showed up and I remembered pretty quickly So... I bought him a car, and now he's able to get to and from work. However, I earned the required skill points for promotion, and he's not getting promoted. I don't understand how not having Uni would interfere with that, but you know, I should have paid attention to the requirements in the first place!

maeglinhiei and arwentroi: Since I'm replying four years after you posted (sorry for that, real life interfered with my gaming ambitions) I'm sure this isn't going to help you very much, but I don't know what the problem could be causing the game to crash. It worked for me when I tested it. Will the game crash if the only custom content you have is this career (and the stuff that goes with it)? If not, then it seems like maybe a conflict with some other custom content. If I had any notion before what the problem might be I have forgotten it in the intervening years. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

icebox123: Glad you enjoyed it.
