This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
The Night Stalker Career is here! Fed up with fairies? ZOMG perturbed by zombies? Vexed by vampires? Time to be proactive and train your Sims for anti-Supernatural combat!

You need Twallan's Careers Mod for the Night Stalker Career to function: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Careers.

Instructions: Make sure you download a version of NRaas Careers that matches your current game patch level or the career won't work (and might possibly crash your game as an added special bonus ). Just place both files (NRaas_Career.package and Kithri_NightStalker_Career_9_12.package) into your Mods > Packages folder, as you do for all cc housed here at MTS. Again, if you do not download and install Twallan's Careers Mod, the Night Stalker Career will not work.

Patch Compatibility is 1.38/1.39.
No expansion or stuff packs are needed. Play testing was done on a base game fully patched to 1.38 and 1.39, and also on a game with all expansions patched to 1.36 and 1.38. This might work on other levels, but there are no guarantees.

All languages will show English text at this time. See below for translation information.

Details, Detail, Details, and Other Juicy Stuff

The Night Stalker Career has 10 levels with assigned vehicles and career outfits.



In addition to the Level 2-4 career uniform, the following picture shows the custom icons for this career:



Night Stalker includes four custom tones or modes that can be chosen from the menu while your Sim is at work to increase required skills. Join the career at the Criminal career rabbithole.



Most of the work hours are in the evening, since this is a NIGHT Stalker Career, after all.

At this time the career doesn't have any custom opportunities or events.


A Note About Retirement: I was unable to trigger retirement by phone or rabbithole despite many weeks and attempts at rewriting the code. So, for now, use Twallan's Master Controller to trigger retirement: From your Sim pie menu, choose NRaas > Master Controller > Intermediate > Career > Retire. The Sim Panel at the bottom of the UI will show your Sim as being retired and will show the pension (but incorrectly report it as being per hour instead of per day). Retirement will then function normally. This is the only way I have been able to successfully engage the retirement script embedded in the code.



Hint: A good Lifetime Wish for this career is the Perfect Mind/Perfect Body, since Night Stalkers need high athletic and logic skills.

Translation Information: Anyone who wishes is welcome to assist in translating the English strings into their native language (how translation is usually done). All you have to do is download the file Kithri_NightStalker_EnglishStrings_FOR_TRANSLATORS_ONLY.rar and translate the text, and I will compile it and re-upload. PM me for contact information.

Featured CC: The screenshots were taken in Jericho for Showtime by Simsample, available here @ MTS. The hair is by Elexis, available here, as is the lipstick (Cherry Pop). Everyday outfit is from the Diesel Stuff Pack.

Tools Used: S3PE, S3 STBL Duplicator, S3PIWrapper, Photoshop CS6, BootStrapCreator, STBL.exe
