Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello all

The careers I'm posting today are not my own. These are careers written by kaebaka, a user who has now moved on.

For for a long time these careers have been usable by TS2 users only. These careers are, in my opinion, some of the best written on MTS2. It seemed a shame to me that only a few users could enjoy them. I therefore decided to upgrade them, allowing all users to play with them.

They are all now EP ready, have unique GUIDs, are language enabled and have their own icons.

The original posts can be found below-

Computer Programmer
Research Assistant
Graduate Student
Post-Doctoral Researcher
Private College Professor
University Professor
Research Scientist
Senior Scientist
Project Head
Institute Director

Hogwarts Teen

Hogwarts Adult
House Elf
Quidditch Referee
Substitute Professor
Head of House
Deputy Headmaster

Please do not redistribute either these files or the original files- they are to remain in your Downloads folder at all times.

Thank you, and enjoy


P.S. do not be put off by the small file size- the careers have been language enabled, removing all forieign language text (English will appear in all game versions as a result)

No they don't- these are only updated careers.

This is awesome - I love astronomy! Thanks.

A radiation wave hit, I was shot through a wormhole -- lost in some distant part of the universe aboard a ship, a living ship! Full of strange alien life forms. I need help! Please! Is there anybody out there who can hear me? I'm being hunted by an insane military commander, . . .

jerzegrl92, the files you need to run the careers are the top two. The other two files are readme files that contain data about the career, and are not needed for the smooth running of the careers.

Ive just got a suggestion, why don't you have in the teen career, as the bottom, student, then as you've done, prefect, head boy/girl? I know students wouldn't get pay normally, but neither do prefects or head boy/girls do in reality. Just a suggestion!


Btw superfly, your signature made me laugh! :D

The Hogwarts one won't upload. I tried uploading the zip file, it didn't work. Can you have rar files for the Hogwarts Career Version 2? Thanks!

A whirlwind of emotions, a rocky exterior and an sensitive yet egotistical personality are all part of one person- me.

Hogwarts career worked well and the chance cards were great. Also, half way through the astronomy career and all seems to be going well. Thanks so much for sharing!

Anyone have any idea why the Hogwarts career isn't working for me, though I see it's working for everyone else? When I have it in the download folder, and try to play a house, it either won't load the house at all, or it will load, but the person stands there, won't do anything, and the time is frozen at 8 AM.

It isn't working for me either to open the zip file. Here is the message I am getting:
The Compressed (zipped) folder is invalid or corrupted
If I try and open with 7-Zip, it says it can't open it as Archive, and if I do a test Archive, it says there is an error with the Teen Career Package...

Dunno if this helps, but it would be really neat to have it work properly... Thanks for making it available to us though!

Check out my Gryffindor and Hufflepuff Dorms!! :) Let me know what y'all think too!!

Wonderful work! Me and my simmians thank you!

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something....

Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.
