With this career by Skunkbeard9, your Sims can live the dream of digging up bones in the hot, arid desert! Exciting, isn't it!

I am 99% sure this is EP compatible, but I do not have Seasons, Free Time, Apartment Life, or Open for Business. If you have issues regarding compatibility and you have one or more of these packs, please contact me so we can resolve a fix. Contains a Chance Card for each level.


1. Blower


T W Th F

Blinding sunlight and sand make up this low pay job in which you blow the sand off of bones. Hope you get promoted soon because you are at the bottom of the latter.

2. Scout



No longer blowing on bones, but you have to walk the desert alone looking for bones. You could get a promotion if you find a good bone.

3. Trainee Excavator


M T W Th F

You are being trained to dig up bones by a Senior Excavator, so be a good student and pay attention. You only have one chance to learn all this.

4. Excavator


M T W Th Sun

Out digging up bones in the dessert, you may get a huge pay bonus for digging up a new dinosaur.

5. Senior Excavator


M T W Th F
Now you get to teach a batch of trainees while still getting to dig up bones. Teach your students well, or you may be fired.

6. Detonator


T W F S Sun
Boom better be your specialty. You have to blow up huge walls of rock to get to more bones. If you have any extra explosives, you can try to “borrow” them and blow stuff up around the house. Creative ways to blow the walls are more effective than shoving bombs in holes.

7. Species Namer


W Sun

Naming the new species unearthed, you can make them reflect anything you want. From Llamasaurus to Blabaurmaka, all names are acceptable in the eyes of science. You will need to be creative for this.

8. Exhibit Director


M T W Th F

The curator has hand-picked you to be the director of exhibits. Creating life-like exhibits of the creatures you named, you must keep up the creativity to make good exhibits.

9. Tour Guide


M T Th F S

Giving tours all day, you now get to tell people about the dinosaurs you
created. Charisma is completely necessary for this job.

10. Curator

T W Th
Now, you are the man in charge. You’re the big cheese in paleontology! You have your own museum at last, work hours are miniscule, and you get oodles of pay.

Sounds great, but in real life... the tour guild is lower in rank then the Exhibiton director. Trust me on that one, I know.

The Netherlands

98% of teenagers do or has tried smoking pot. If you're one of the 2% who hasn't, copy & paste this in your siggy.
(I'm one of the 2%, I don't smoke at all)

Umm... it's actually PaleOntology, not palentology.

I was confused by that too. I was like, what? does it have to do with taste? Like you know, palate? *smacks head* Yeah well I haven't eaten in a while, it's hard.
