Teen Career completed! It was a major headache trying to figure out how to do things that were mentioned in tutorials because they were using an older version of SimPe. I made sure this teen career worked ingame, but I don't know if it will updgrade to the adult one. If it works, great! If it doesn't, let me know.

Teen jobs match the first 3 jobs, but with modified work dates and times so that they don't interfere with school.


More detailed chance cards and descriptions are in the real career. Enjoy!

I think this is a great idea. I always have a Priest in my game and a church he "owns" just so he is always there when my other Sims go to that community lot. With this I could play this sim and advance him to the highest level of the career before "assigning" him to the Sim's community Church.

I just started playing in Riverblossem and had not yet made a Church for them.

Great career path! I just completed it with one of my sims, but ran into a problem...it only works with males to completion. My teenage female sims that start on this path convert to mad scientist role upon reaching adulthood. I haven't tried it with an adult female yet. This role motivated me to build my first church in simdom and a parish house for my male sim & family to live in.

It's good but what about Catholics? Priest instead of pastors, of course it could be because of difference in dialect between Americans and my country.

This is really weird as the career is written for both genders at the same time, within the same path. LOL ... you have my curiousity going though and I will have a look a the coding to see what is going on with this. This is something new in the way of reports that I have never seen.

EDIT: Okay, I checked the coding of the career and found this:

Level 4: "Choir Singer" works fine for Males, but does not have a chance card for the 2nd choice (good) outcome. This card has a 53% change of coming up.

Level 7: "Usher" is blank for both Male & Female ... only has description for this level, but 0% chance of card coming up. Scenario for card has the number 9, but no cards.

Other than those two finds, the career is identical for both genders, with the usual references changed to make the career gender specific.
