Galactic Politics Career

Hi everyone! I have been trying to put together a fairly generic Science Fiction neighborhood for some time. I have characters from all my favorite series in it, but they are stuck with boring old terrestrial careers. It just seems wrong for Han Solo to be Mayor of SimCity, you know? So, I sat myself down and forced myself to learn SimPE and Bidou's Career editor. I am a writer, not a programmer and yet I found this program amazingly easy to figure out. Bless you folks, I kiss your little pink toes.

I have yet to figure out how to link custom outfits, I'm afraid, but I am working on it. Once I do, Vectorlover has given me permission to use her skins for the careers (She is amazingly talented!) so it should be pretty spectacular.

I had originally intended to use the science fiction themed cars, that used to be posted here, for carpools, but they are now pay objects and that would limit who could use these careers. However, if you have these objects I freely give you permission to mod the career to use them. In fact, you can do anything you want with this career, expect make it a pay object. Give me credit and you can re-post it anywhere you like.

Okay on to the levels for the Galactic Politics Career

Level. 1 – Pollster
Level. 2 – Xeno Control Officer
Level. 3 – Local Board of Education
Level. 4 – City Councilmember
Level. 5 – Metroplex Mayor
Level. 6 – Planetary Councilmember
Level. 7 – Planetary President
Level. 8 – Senator
Level. 9 – Senate Speaker
Level. 10 – Galactic President

I have done all the chance cards for this career, so far I haven't done any teen/elder careers yet. All the cards and descriptions are generic scifi, so that they can fit in any galactic milieu you choose. It is Uni compatable and I can make a base game version, if I get a request for it, but otherwise I won't bother. I have tested the career in my game, but this IS my first one and I am not certain that it will work without flaw, hence the "in testing" categorization.

I have the outlines for a Galactic Navy career (ala Honor Harrington), a Space Pilot/Rogue career, for all you smugglers out there and a Scout career, for all the Liaden fans. I will happily take any other SF-themed requests, if they sound like fun to me.

I've a few "human" aliens hiding out in my sim communities. Now I'll have a few careers for them to have or have had. Please continue with the work. I love when creators make sure to include chance cards and other surprises.

Still this is a nice Career and it really does not need any changes. But you should make an update for a star wars Politic Career, "It would be a great career to add to my collection...cough, cough" - Thanks

Hmm - my Padmé sim just got a bonus of "5000 credits" but it was really 5 000 000! Don't know if I should complain or not, but was that intentional? :P

I don't think it was intentional, but I made it so long ago I can't remember. (blush) I am pretty sure that was an accident though.
