Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Okay, this is my first upload to this site, i hope you enjoy it... It's a new career, the Death career. Basically, you can become a Hearse Driver, a Funeral Priest/Priestess, a Soul Harvester and Death Itself, just to name a few of the job positions. I have tested the career and it works fine in my game, i gave it a unique (or so i think) ID tag number, so if it overlaps anyone else's custom careers, please tell me. The worst problem i know of is potential grammar mistakes. Everything else should work fine, just tell me what you think.

*UPDATE 2/22/06*

I have created a version based off of the Science Career track, so non-graduates can become employed as well.

Download the new version and unzip it into your downloads folder. This new package file will not overwrite the old career so I also suggest you delete the old version, labled "deathcareer.package", unless of course, you have some sentimental attatchment to it... :skull: Enjoy!

*UPDATE 8/03/06*

Well, after about a three month absence from this site, i have decided to pick up the death career again! Between a nasty computer crash... into the floor... and work and summer school, i will complete this career. Unfortunately as the way things are now, I don't have OFB, or anything after Nightlife for that matter, so as soon as i get those, i can make some more adjustments, but in the meantime, hang tight as i will be trying to fix the science over-write problem, among other things. Thanks for you patience!

Does this stop anyone else from getting career rewards? My guy is at the top of the Criminal career track and I still can't get the lie detector.

It doesn't work in my game. I play the Dutch version and the only thing that changes is the icon. I have other English careers in my game that work without problems. I love the idea though. Absolutely brilliant.

Yes, I know this problem- it's caused when a career isn't copied into all languages. It's a problem I had when I first started out making careers.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate

So, wait. If i download the second one listed, I lose the science career, but if I DL the the first, I keep it? And all I have to do is put a sim through college to use? Ok, first one it is upon confirmation that first lets me keep Science.

could you PLEASE do something about it overwriting the science career? i'm so desperate for this career! but i don't want to lose the science.

i am going to get Tosha Go, and it's going to look like an accident... because, she stole my newspaper.

#96 Old 19th Jul 2006 at 1:16 PM
><; I have a problem with the career...can anyone help?

First was already adressed...can't find it on the pc. I had to use the newspaper hack.

Second, once I actually got the job, I...can't seem to...go to work. 0__O; It's like "*Sim's Name* needs to be at work in an hour." Then I click my car and select, 'go to work'....then the go to work icon just disappears...

I tried going to work with the carpool, but all the same. The carpool arrives, but my sim doesn;t wanna get on. T____T Dang...this career was so cool too...
