Ok Guys/Gals this is my new early beta US Marine Career.
It has 26 job levels going through all the ranks of the US marines.
It will not replace any of the ingame carrers and will turn up in the paper+computer.
It currently has no chance cards or job descriptions, this is due to it having 26 job levels and writing 26 descriptions is very consuming I just need feedback on if it all works well. If you use the newspaper hack then you can only select the first 10 levels not the rest but im not sure if tht can be changed.

Any supportive comments will be apprieciated. :D

I was talking about the newspaper hack that was made, if you want it search the forums, it allows you to choose any jobs+the level of the jobs they are in.

Is torturing and brainwashing part of this career?

Bobbling:
I think this career is great, and you did an excellent job on it. A small request: Would you be willing to tweak this career just a little to make an Army career as well?

Keep up the good work!

Screw the army lol. I would really, really love an Air Force version of this career. I know that is a lot of tweaking to do, but if possible I would love you forever and give you my first born.

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you've decided to look past the imperfections.

wow thanks for this one man. this is probably my favorite one yet

Hey the Army is better. lol
The Air Force has it too easy....

Eh, I only suggested the Army because the Rank structure is similiar to the Marine Corps so it shouldn't be too much work to tweak.

I'm definitely putting this in my game. I think it would be really kick ass if you could do an Army version of this. I'm not bashing the Marines at all. My hubby is in the military and serving in Afghanistan right now, so I'm kinda partial to the Army. LOL

What unit glitter? I've been out for about a year and a half now.

One thing I came across with this career while testing:
I tried for 4 days straight to get it to come up normally under find job on the comp, but no luck. I finally just opted to use it under the newspaper hack.

Thanks Bobbling for the great work. As a retired US Marine I really appreciate the addition of this career.

Diane Lyn,
What do you mean by tourturing and brainwashing? In my 25 plus years of service, I had never heard of anything such as that ever occuring in the Marine Corps.

Gunny,
Have you been reading the news? Have you heard about the abuses going on in Iraq? About the marines shooting wounded Iraqi children, to put them out of their misery? Torture techniques endorsed by Rumsfeld? Maybe not, but that's what I meant. I guess it's not even the career I mind, it's Bobbling's sig since everyone is not willing to die for this country, especially now! See, I know this forum is for the Sims, so when someone tries to force their opinion on everyone else, I, for one, take offense. Now I will wait for the nasty emails and other garbage that happened when I posted my first comment.

Actually, I agree with you Diane. I'm not actually sure though if most people here, especially those who live in America, know about most stuff like that. Whenever I look at American websites or TV Channels, I always see politics at work. At least in the UK, we have a national TV channel (BBC) that is mostly non-biased and tends to show both sides of the story.
