Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here is my Actor career for Teen and Elders.
This career does not over write any maxis or anyone else’s for that matter. I extensively tested for that.
No expansions required so whatever version of the game you’ve got you’ll be fine.
A new custom icon.
Two (2) files.
The Teen version has two Chance cards.
The Elder has one and there are no bad outcomes for it!


Here are the levels of the Teen career.
Department Store Model
Local Commercials
Waiter at Cluckies

Here are the levels of the Elder Career.
Producer
Director
Production Company Owner


Now both of these careers are made from a Teen/Elder career so they will show up in game for both Teens and Elders. You can certainly use either for teen or an elder. Keep in mind that I made these with the Actor career I made for the adults. So they’d make sense in game. But I guess I’m telling you that you can mix and match as you’d like!
You can find the Actor career for the Adult Sims here:

I love this career option. Thanks. =] My only suggestion is that the custom icon is made to look like an image from the actual Sims 2.

I'm sincerely not trying to be a smarta**, I'm legitimately in the dark...what does "Waiter at Cluckies" have to do with an acting career?

I only run the base game, so if it's something related to an EP, this would explain my ignorance, and I'm sure I'm not the only one out of the know.

Btw...it looks like a fun and well made custom career. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I think this is in there because most struggling actors in their teens to young adults work as waiters...

I decided not to because I like a bit of extra color on my panel. I think its a nice diversion from the blue take over that Maxis loves. Sorry! But if anyone would want to make one that fits the theme of Maxis I'd be willing to add it and upload a copy of the career with the new icon! :o)

Yes this is correct. I added it in for fun because you often hear actors say they were waiting tables before they got a big break! And "Cluckies" just because I couldn't think of anything normal that made me chuckle. hehe.

And thanks to everyone who said thank you. Very sweet of you to take the time to do so!

I've always thought that Elders should be offered more rewarding careers. This is perfect. Thanks!

titinaki, check first that all the careers you downloaded are compatible with your game - if you don't have Expansion Packs make sure they're not EP Required, if you do have EPs make sure they are EP compatible - once you're sure that everything is compatible, if the problem still occurs, put them back in one at a time until you find the file which is causing the issue.

Also, for future reference, we have a Game Help section for such questions.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

I'm so happy with this. I love how you constructed the whole acting career! Thanks for posting

No offense, but as a young actress the teens' version of this career has no levels that have anything to do with ACTING. I mean, modeling and being a mascot for some restaurant don't require any acting skill, PLUS, they have nothing to do with acting. Anyone could do them. Sorry, not downloading.

Just want to say that I love this career for my Elders who have retired from their other jobs. Nice way to earn extra money before they die
