I noticed that I'd reached 750 "thanks" the other day for my past creations, and I wanted to upload something new. I decided that I wanted to complete my Falconry/Birds of Prey trio, which consists of my Falconry career for adults, my Raptor Biology major and now this final piece, a Falconry career for teens and elders! Sorry it's taken me so long to upload it!

Please leave a comment or hit the Thanks button if you download this career! If you encounter any problems, or find any grammar/spelling errors please let me know by leaving a comment below.

This career has its own unique GUID, and so shouldn't overwrite anything in your game. It links to my falconry career for adults, so that your teens will continue in the career when they age up (provided that you download that career from here. It is EP compatible, and has 3 chance cards (ie one per level). It also has a custom icon:

In short, this is a career about Falconry. For those of you who don't know what falconry is, it can basically be summarised as hunting with birds of prey. In this career track I have used it to mean working with birds of prey in any context.

This is the information about the levels. The second and third level and chance card descriptions are the same as the first two levels of the adult career, and the first level is completely new :-)

Falconry Centre Volunteer $25, MTWTF, 3pm - 6pm

You have always loved birds of prey, so when you are offered the chance to volunteer at a local falconry centre you jump at the chance! You only get paid expenses, but the work is a lot of fun, and you are learning a lot of new things!

Trainee Raptor Keeper $50, MTWTF, 3pm - 7pm

You spend most of your time cleaning things, you tramp through ponds to fetch difficult birds, and to top it all off you are paid an absolute pittance! But at least you're getting paid! Keep working on your skills, and hopefully you will get a promotion soon.

Raptor Keeper $100, SS, 8am - 18pm (note that this is weekends only, and hence doesn't clash with school!)

Well, you have finished your training, but the work is still much the same. The only difference is that you have a trainee and a load of volunteers to boss around, so they do some of the worst jobs for you!

So, now your sim teen can become involved with Falconry, study Raptor Biology at university, and then continue in a Falconry career as adults! :-D I hope that you all enjoy this career (and the other career and major that go with it, if you choose to download them too)! Don't forget to comment and/or hit the "Thanks" button!

I would like to thank Superfly, whiterider and Emma Barrett for their awesome tutorials on career creation.

And, of course, many thanks to the makers of SimPE.

I'm not sure it'll really fit in to a medieval neighbourhood, I'm afraid, it's more of a modern take on falconry! I am working on a medieval Falconer career at the moment though, should be up in two or three weeks or so (I'm trying to figure out how to use a custom carpool, using someone else's work, with permission - it's taking ages!).

Wonderful news! I hope it all works out.

Turns out I've already made it for my own use! I knew I'd started it, but I thought I still had a lot of work to do on it! If I can get permission from one of the people involved in making the custom carpool (I have permission from the other person already) I will upload it straight away :-)

That's great!

I find I'm often getting confused about which projects I've finished or almost finished...
