This object completes the Magic Skill collection. For your convenience, I have also a pre-fabricated collection available (CtfG_MagicSkillCollection.zip). It does not contain the objects themself, but only the game-internal links to these objects. If you download the collection, please read the included Readme for installation instructions.

Features:
- Extremely fast mechanic skill gain (approx. four times faster)
- Teach / Be taught function included
- Does not overwrite the behaviour of Maxis' original career reward Surgery Station
- Available in Buy mode: Hobbies - Miscellaneous (costs 8,500, but it's worth the price)
- GUID registered with SimPE to avoid conflicts with other SimPE-registered mods / hacks.


File(s):
- CtfG_MagicSurgery_v0.1.package


Installation / Uninstallation:
To install, simply extract the file into your Downloads folder in "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2".
To uninstall, remove or delete the file.


Update 2006-11-02
Pets-compliant: Yes. No further modifications necessary.


Update 2007-03-29
All Magic items work with SEASONS.


Update 2008-04-01

I've played them for about 8 RL hours over the last 2 days and all of them are compatible with EP4-Pets too. I have 5 sims in 3 households that fulfilled the "Max out 7 skills" LTW with no negative effects of any kind. Hope this helps. BTW, I have all expansions and Holiday, FFS and GLS. Thanks tons for these.

I'm not 30-something, I'm 29.95 + shipping and handling.

Yes, it helps a lot! Especially since I don't have Pets yet and was unsure about any side effect of that EP. Thank you, drunkmonkeysmom!

Magic Rules!!!
I have all of your Magic stuff now. And they are GREAT!!! I love to get things done fast enough to get my Sims to the top level BEFORE they are too old to enjoy it!!!

I seem to be having a problem with the mirror. It is saying the file is corrupt or incomplete? All of the others downloaded fine and I'm going to try them now.
Is there a problem with the mirror or is it my computer? Thanx.

If I have any other problems I'll be back to let you know and see if I can figure out why the mirror isnt working for me.

After I upload files, I wait for the new page to build and then I download the files again just to make sure the upload was ok. May I suggest that you clear your Browser's cache (Tools - Options - Clear Cache) and try again to dl the file? This usually "repairs" any corrupted downloads.

Or, if you have a firewall istalled (besides the Win XP standard firewall), ensure that you can follow URL's that do not point directly to the file. I had these problems with WinRAR a while ago.

Hope this helps.

Excellent! I'm trying to sell a friend on the Magic collection (since I can't yet use them myself)... and she just got Pets, so I wasn't sure how that would go over! Thank you!

Contemplating making Golden Sun stuff for TS2.

All Magic skill objects were cloned from the original game without any expansions, so they should work in your game environment.

Oh, there already is such an item: it is called "Make Friends & Go To Work In Best Mood" - No, serious: A promotion can be achieved using standard game functions. But there is a hack called something like "NoFriendsNeeded" or so. Using that one, your sims can have zero friends and still reach the top of a career. It is available either somewhere on this site or over at MATY (moreawesomethanyou.com), if I remember correctly.

Hope this helps.
