**Minor Update**

Several people complained that you couldn't get above a grade C in this major. I've therefore tweaked the skills a bit, and so hopefully higher grades should be obtainable.

**********

A career for all you budding Time Travellers!

Required skills- Main ones are mechancial and logic, although I've added a few more in for good measure

The class titles are as follows-

Description Time Travelling- once only heard of in science fiction, advances in Dimension Warping have made time travel a real possibility. But before you get to go back in time and stop the bully who flushed your head in the toilet all those years ago, your gonna need to learn some real important stuff...

Pocket Watches 101- Yes, it’s boring, tinkering with clocks all day. But before you go zooming off through time, you need to know how clocks work. Tick-tock, tick-tock…
Paradox Puzzles- Paradoxes may sound cool, but believe me, they’re a pain in the neck - which is exactly what you’ll be getting when you sit down and watch the tickertape machine data spew out data all afternoon. Learn what all of the data means, for a time traveller who knows naught about paradoxes is a useless time traveller.

Time Machine Mechanic- It’s time to get your hands dirty. Learn what the chrono-wrench does, make sure you know how often to service machines (every 3 years, relative to your individual time) and remember- if you get to have a go in the DeLorean, be sure to wipe the grease off the keys before you put them back.
A Brief History of Everything- As your chance to time travel gets closer, you need to know the worlds history- famous battles, feared dictators, ancient martyrs- remember the five w’s- who, what, when, where and why.


Temporal Warping- As a temporal physicist in training, you need to know the nitty gritty stuff of temporal warping- understand the space-time continuum, get to grips to calculus and learn where the coffee machine is- you’re gonna need it pal.
Historical Policing- It’s all well and good, learning physics and studying time machines- but can you go back in time and apprehend the past guilty and bring them back to justice whilst wearing flimsy white boxers?


Gap Year- Time Travel Relaxation- You’ve studied hard, and now it’s time to take some time out before the big exam- a practical. You get your own time machine, and you can do what you want with it- within limits. If you take your lunch break to woohoo some Vestal virgin or Egyptian slave boy, well, you earned it buddy.
??????
You'll have to find out the last level yourself.... All I'll say is that it's a practical of some sorts...

Notes-

Unique GUID, so it won't override any other major (0x000B9A57)

As usual, please mention any bugs or glitches you find.

Such a fun idea! My sim is now a second semester freshman. Unfortuantely, things aren't exactly right. She has 100% of her skills, but the grade meter (I don't know what it is really called) isn't registering them all. It shows 3 portions (presumably corresponding to 3 skill levels). Only the first bubble is fillable.

As to the skill themselves, only 1 logic point is shown as a required skill. Just guessing (because I know absolutely nothing about the structure of any of this code), it may be looking for 3 skill levels, but you only assigned one. In any case, she will be my first college grad in recent memory who won't have a 4.0. Guess she will have to spend more time on dates and hanging out, since studying won't make a difference.

On a less important note, the descriptions of the classes is too long for my display and are truncated. Don't you just hate it when the world won't let you be cleverly verbose?

Let me have a look at the file, see what I can find.

More bad news. At the end of my junior year, just after she came home from the final and ready to begin her final year, my game crashed. I tried twice & it crashed in the same place each time. Guess she will just have to settle for everyday traveling in cool sports cars and leave the time traveling to the pros.


:hide: Shhh.... Don't tell anybody, but I am a download junkie. I haven't installed anything new in a couple of days and it has been months since I last had a crash. Still one never knows what evil lurks in the forgotten corners of the Sims Download folder.

Has there been any progress on solving this problem? My Sims really do want this major to work!

So do I -- I've got one Sim in there currently (just for freshman year, his real major is Drama) and I'd like to know that it works for any future Sims.

I've also noticed you apparently updated both this and the career on May 25th -- were the files changed? Should I redownload?

FLChicago- I can't reproduce the problem in my game- can you test it for me and see what you come up with?

BTTFsimmer- the updates were to add keywords onto the threads- the major (or the career) hasn't been reuploaded.
