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!

I like it. It'll be fun to play with. The only thing is "plauges" is actually spelt "plagues."

A question: I remember seeing a hearse car in the MTS2 downloads a little while ago, is this included with one of the jobs? and if so do we need to download it?

Ooooh, I can think of a few evil Sims who've just been waiting for this career! And think of the possibilities when Open for Business comes out - hmm, must get to building a funeral parlor... :skull:

Wow. Thank you very much to everyone for the support. I really appreciate it. I haven't figured out how to get custom cars into the careers yet, so there is no hearse, unfortunately. And the funeral parlor idea is genius. I can't wait for the newest EP.

I believe that you can assign a custom Vehicle for a custom career if you manually edit the BCON:Vehicle GUIDs. Except for one problem, I don't think that vehicles cloned from NL cars are compatable. So you would need to clone one of the career based vehicles, then edit it. Now I'm aware that this is probably beyond the skills of all but a handful of people, but atleast it's possible. Of course I havn't actually tested any of this, so you never know. But the first step is to dig through all the related defaults and figure out how they work.

Default Death
In the picture you have an actual Sim that looks like the Death that comes visiting? Where or how do I get that as a playable sim?
