Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
EDIT: I've just run through this career again with EPs: University, Night Life, Open for Business, & Seasons. Worked fine!

This is my first Sims Creation and was inspired by these careers:


So first I ought to give them thanks where thanks is due for the inspiration. However, I found that all three had problems. At least one overwrites the science career. Two have no chance cards, etc.. Plus I found that none really did justice to the unique beast that is the film industry.

So I decided to have a go at making a career. This career is completely original and won't interfere with those. It has been extensively tested with the original game and SHOULD be compatible with EPs, but I don't know for sure because I don't have them! (Thanks to Superfly who says it works with EPs!)

*THIS IS A HARD CAREER* Just be warned. It is designed to represent one
possible path to the top. This career is not for the faint of heart or sims
with family aspirations! heh. The film industry is infamous for being hard to
get into and I thought I'd transfer a bit of the fun to the sim world! Note:
This is a film industry career and NOT acting. Just so you know.

This a complete career. (all original files)
Custom jobs, level, pay, hours, and motives.
Chance Cards
Custom clothing (if not too exciting - maxis stuff with Arri written on it)
Custom reward object. (academy award! -)
Custom Icon set (duh)

PS. Stats for the oscar:
Cannot be purchased, but value 12,000
Polys - 820
Enviornment: 10
Maybe 1 point of fun & comfort. Not sure if it worked or not. lol.
Sounds good, but IF you get this thing, you'll have earned it!


You may redistribute these files FOR FREE ONLY. I'd be glad for someone to put these files on other FREE sites - I made them to be enjoyed. Just please if you do, send me an email and let me know where so I can keep track for updating purposes. (check the readme for details)

Finally a big thanks to Modthesims2. The resources here made this possible. Thanks!

I wanted to thank you for this career. I downloaded it a while ago, and have enjoyed it very much. Like you said it's a hard career, but you've set the bar for all my custom careers. Most of my sims now work 18 hour days in the beginning, with no days off. Thank you so much for your hard work.

I like that this career sounds tough. I don't like careers that are too easy and/or overpaid.

Sounds like this career is gonna be fun :D

You weren't kidding when you said this career is hard! If anyone is looking for a challenging career for their simmies look no more! Awesome career and Awesome reward! I especially like that you cannot use the cheat to get the reward, that you really have to work your buns off to get that Oscar!! I think it would be great for you to do a whole set of these careers.

P.S I will patiently await the whole set. lol

You made an Arri shirt.


Really, this career needs no more endorsement than that. It's enough to make my entire day.
