Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I have made a new career. This was actually a request by Dawn_.
It’s a Novelist career.

There are chancecards for levels 4, 6 and 9.
I have made this career the way Dawn_ requested.
There are 6 files in total.
3 files with the chance cards Dawn_ requested, each in another PTO version.
3 files with my general chance cards, each in another PTO version.





PTO versions
PTO7 by default.
PTO3 version.
PTO5 version.
These versions are available for the career with and without chance cards.

What is PTO?
By default it takes a sim 7 working days before getting 1 day of paid vacation (PTO). I made a version of the career to let it take 3 days (PTO3) and one where it takes 5 days (PTO5) before getting one day paid vacation.

All careers have a different GUID so you can use them all together in game.

Would you believe that Jane Austen is one of my sims?

Now if someone will just create a Charles Dickens sim...

Thank you!

Thanks so much for this! I was depressed that the only career remotely like this in Sims 2 is Journalism; my sim-self wasn't quite right!

No, it has its own GUID so it won't overide anything.

I love the career, but I'm sort of a grammar freak, and I noticed one level is "Story Story Writer." Is that supposed to be Short Story Writer, and is there any way to fix it?

I noticed that, but I think (as Dawn_ wrote this, not me) it's meant to be story story to surpress the fact that it's a story. Otherwise MTS would have told me it was wrong. If you want me to, I can fix it. That's no problem.

I have had 2 chance cards come up with my novelist sim...both of them were versions of the following:
the text describing the event was completely blank.
the first card gave me 3 choices: "A," "A," or "Ignore." I can't remember what the second card options were.
Anyone else had this happen? Thanks!!

Well that's probably because this one has not chancecards and I copied it from another career without thinking of the chancecardchances. Do you remember which level of the career you were that time?

#14 Old 30th May 2010 at 6:56 PM Last edited by Camping Stove : 30th May 2010 at 6:57 PM. Reason: adding info
In the overview it says there are chance cards for levels 4, 6, and 9. And the chance card came up at level 4 (with the 2 "A" options), and I think the second time was level 6.
I have been playing another sim novelist to see what happens - he has had no chance cards.
Seems a little strange, what do you think?
(I am hitting "ignore" option when the chancecards come up, since they are blank text - everything else seems to be working fine).

I downloaded the file from this thread and I checked it in SimPE. The chancecards are completly filled in. So it should work fine.
I can only advise you to download it again and override the file you already have. Then try it out again. But it works fine in my game.

You have to have ten levels. Or maybe nine will do too, but I always ask for ten.
If you have a request, please go to my profile to see how to make a request.
