Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a new major I created based on the careers discussed in the Harry Potter books. This one is for Auror studies and is based on the classes that are outlined in "The Order of the Phoenix"

Major: Auror Studies
Description: Tired of Dark Wizards and Evil triumphing in the world? Do something about it! Become an Auror and fight dark magic!

Freshman 1st Term: Great Aurors of the past: Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody
Freshman 2nd term: Studying Dark Wizards: Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters

Sophomore 1st Term: Defense Against the Dark Arts: Coming out on Top
Sophomore 2nd Term: Potions: Poisons and Antidotes

Junior 1st Term: Transfiguration: Hide your work in creative ways
Junior 2nd Term: Charms: Spells to keep you alive

Senior 1st Term: Herbology: This may come in handy...
Senior 2nd term: Character building: Do you have what it takes?

This Major is cloned from the Psychology Major and therefor will require the same skills as that. It does have its own GUID: 0x00190901 so it will nto overwrite any others. Let me know if it works. This is the first major I've uploaded and so I am a little anxious to see if it works for all you. I have tried it in my game and I've found nothing yet wrong. Thanks!

I usually don't download careers/majors, but I think I'm going to download all of these Harry Potter ones for my neighborhood. Too bad the teachers won't look like wizards...

Hi! I have dowload the career, and then i put it in the Downloads folder. But when I start the game, the game said that the career will replace a another career if I activate the career. And if I do that, I will lose the other career. Plzz help me
Must I replace the old career to have this career?
Or have I put the career in a wrong folder?
Plzzz help me

I'm not sure why that is doing that since I registered new GUIDs for these majors. Sorry I can't help.

It goes in My Documents/ EA Games/ The Sims 2/ Downloads. This is actually a major, so it needs Unversity to function.

OK, i don't know why, but it's not working for me. Actually the whole wizard pacage isn't working. I get the icon, but it shows the term description for psychology. The same thing is with muggle studies, and healing has biology. I did put it in My Documents/ EA Games/ The Sims 2/ Downloads, I did try to download it twice and I do have University original. And I have nightlife. Everything is original.
Help please

Hmm, you haven't said anything but am I wrong or does this major also need the standard - add majors through SimPE like it is described here:

If so can we have the name please?

EDit: Ok same problem as people before me, the name changes but the rest is from the original major. Maybe we should do it through SimPE and not the hack.
