Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have you ever wanted Kaylyn Langrek to have the proper job when you move her in? Ever had your sim ask the gardener or pizza delivery person to be their roommate but were disappointed to find that there was no job available for them that matched their NPC status? Well with the NPC Career Mega Pack you don't have to worry about that anymore.

They do not overwrite any of the default careers as they come with their own unique GUIDs.



This is my first upload. I've come across a few NPC careers on here and other places but the levels made it so their job status was never right for very long. All the levels for each career have the same name, description, outfit and carpool. The only things that change are the pay, skills, friends and days. 9 out the 10 the careers have custom icons and they came directly from in game icons. Bartender requires Nightlife and Gardener requires Seasons.







I put all the careers into one zip file but they are seperate files and you can choose which to install.

Anyway, enjoy and let me know how you like it! Thanks.

Thank you so mutch for this! I like having realistic jobs , if you play with a poor family it won't take long before they are rich. With this they have to work hard for the small money they get!

You should make one for sims 3 because I can't find one for sims 3

This is really a great concept, and well executed! The only thing is, the careers do not pay very much. Would there be any way you (or anyone) could make them pay a wage proportional to other careers in the game? Like, a mailroom clerk ( level 1, business career) gets $120 a day, as do similar level 1 positions.
I would really appreciate it, but either way, this career bundle is great!

If I was still playing and creating for TS2 I would but I sold all my games back in 2009. That said; my reasoning behind having such low pay was to make the game harder. I always felt it was too easy to earn money in game. IIRC all you need is SimPE and using Bidou's career editor add-on you should be able to edit the wages yourself (which you are more than welcome to do). Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
