This is a first career which I have been able to complete thanks to Psions oh so brilliant tutorial.

I've called it another medieval career but I don't think it's restrictive to that particular era. I'm using it for my medieval sims. I've based it around the feudal system which was in place kind of dark ages time right through to 1800's in the UK and prob other places.

Career descriptions and chance cards are complete.
Comes up as "feudal" in the newspaper.
No career outfits, sims go to work in their everyday clothes.
and it's symbol is still the athletics career one

Sims start off as a serf (ye olde term for a slave basically) and can progress up through the levels of society.

It works on my game and I've got loads of hacks and downloads already.
If you could test it and give me some feedback. S'il vous plait.

forgot to mention earlier, It has its own GUID so shouldn't overwrite any of the other careers.

edit: When I was playing the game myself I realised that I hadn't changed the chance cards into all languages, meaning the original athletics career chance cards came up for non US. I've fixed this now.

Heh, thats good athenegw. I've been rather busy of late, so no time to update careers. I'm still investigating the matter about the custom clothes, and I'm about to make my career EP compatible. Once again, well done!
#9 Old 13th Apr 2005 at 11:47 PM
This is excellent. I'm sick of my sims always walking around in their work clothes in my medieval neighborhood- it totally disrupts the balance of things.
#10 Old 15th Apr 2005 at 7:12 AM
Yes, downloaded careers DO show up in the regular newspaper and on the computer.

Do you think you could post the names of all the carrer leavels? I'm afraid to let my peasant sim get a promotion because I don't know what the next leavel is, and I want his to have a job that fits a peasant.

Sure, it's
4. Esquire
6. Lord/Lady
7. Duke/Duchess
8. Lord Chancellor
9. Regent
10. King/Queen

I've been toying with the idea of posting a couple of my other careers on here, I've got a peasant one where they're a serf until career level 9 then they get freed (yey). You get paid more as you get promoted but it's not fantastic amounts of simoleons, the job title stays basically the same.

I've another for Kings and queens. First couple of levels are prince/princess then it's king/queen etc. It annoyed me when the son/daughter of my monarch had to start off as a serf, that just doesn't happen in real life.

They're tailormade for my specific game and the way I play it but if anyones interested I'd be more then happy to share.

Thanks for posting the leavels. I would love to use your other carrers. The majority of the sims in my medieval kingdom won't move to a higher class, so it would be great to have a career just for peasants. The Royalty one sounds great too. If you decide to post them I will tell the other people taking The Royal KingdomeChallenge about them. (If you haven't read the Royal Kingdome Challenge here is a link to it: )

I need to work out the chance cards, Give me a week and I'll probably have it sorted.

I'm keen too! Such a career (the royalty one)would be good for my fantasy Sims - one's a princess/queen (part of a story), and I have a whole family of royal Elves... I look forward to seeing it!

Please Please Share! I don't want my serfs to be King and i don't want my kings to start out as surfs.
#22 Old 12th Aug 2005 at 5:38 PM
This is neat but I want my peasant to stay a peasant. and my king to be forever royal.
#23 Old 8th Nov 2005 at 8:31 AM
I really like this career, although I do think that the requirements for friends is really really high. I also noticed that some of the dialogue is less than accurate, you've got typos and errors.

It would be excellent if you could update this.
