Pastry Chef Major

This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
So, I made several new majors for my game and thought that others might get some use out of one or two of them (my plan is to share the Agriculture one that was made for farming sims next...at some point).

For a bit of added realism, this major was made for my sims that plan on opening up their own bakery or restaurant, but still wish to attend college first.

It is also perfect for those who use Squinge's Mega College Pack, which allows young adults to attend university in the main neighborhood. If not for Squinge's mod, none of my sims would get to go to college.

This major will NOT overwrite any of the Maxis majors. It was cloned from the Philosophy major, and has it's own unique GUID 0x008D7316. I have played through the entire uni cycle (a couple of times now) in a heavily modded game and did not encounter any issues.


Class Schedule:

Freshman 1 - What is Dessert?
Skill Requirements - (1) Cooking, (1) Cleaning, (1) Mechanical

Freshman 2 - Kitchen Prep 101: Cleanliness is Everything
Skill Requirements - (1) Cleaning, (1) Creativity, (1) Body

Sophomore 1 - Julia: Exploring Classic Recipes
Skill Requirements - (1) Cooking, (1) Creativity, (1) Charisma

Sophomore 2 - Food Science
Skill Requirements - (1) Cooking, (1) Creativity, (1) Charisma

Junior 1 - Bake-Off: Learn to Bake Anything and Everything
Skill Requirements - (1) Cooking, (1) Creativity

Junior 2 - Sweet Tooth: The Importance of Natural Sweeteners
Skill Requirements - (1) Logic, (1) Cleaning

Senior 1 - Finishing Touch: Create Your Own Award-Winning Recipe
Skill Requirements - (1) Cleaning, (1) Cooking

Senior 2 - Senior Project: Enter the Community Baking Contest
Skill Requirements - (1) Mechanical, (1) Logic

Total Skill Requirement: (5) Cooking, (2) Mechanical, (2) Charisma, (1) Body, (2) Logic, (4) Creativity, (4) Cleaning


All classes are only one-hour long - final exams are the usual amount of time...unless you have a mod that changes that. I use the One-Hour Exam mod by Nopke.

Start times for all of the first (1) semesters are from 10a - 11a (1000 hours)

Start times for all of the second (2) semesters are from 11a - 12p (1100 hours)


Please note: I suggest using the Buyable Semester Tester (No Pop-Ups version) by Larky (post #88). I know a number of people use Frika's Majors Made Easier, but it appears to only work in the university neighborhoods and would serve no purpose if you use Squinge's Mega College Pack mod.

If you would like to see an example of how to use the Larky's version of the Semester Tester, see my posting with images here.

Hope you get some enjoyment out of using this major in your game.

Happy Simming!

This is very cool, @PenelopeT, and I am just about to send a future bakery owner to college, so thanks! It's also really nice to get this from someone who plays uni from hood.

@Sunrader, I hope you enjoy using this major. It's always nice to have a little more variety for the college-bound to choose from.

And for those of you who might use Larky's semester tester and would like to have the model changed to something other than the default apple statue, Sunrader, has a tutorial for that at http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...511#post5489511.

My Sim who will soon own the town bakery ( I just finished building it!) is a CAS university graduate who signed up for this very well done major. ((Thank you))

@teafortwo, thank you for the compliment.

I'm happy you're enjoying using this major, and I too finally finished building a small bakery for my recently graduated sim that inspired the making of this major.

Why would you make a major for this and no career? Where is the career mode for this? Does it have to be for only university or is there one I can download for non university adults?

@Sims Girl

First off, I'm not sure if you meant to sound as rude as you do, but, yeah...you sound rude. Secondly, I made it pretty clear that this was made for my own game (for sims that own businesses), and is something that I shared in case others have some use for it.

Also, it clearly states that this is a university major, which is almost always for college students/young adults, and not adults.

Lastly, if you look through the amount of custom majors available for download here or elsewhere, you most likely won't find many that have accompanying careers available in addition to the major. However, you could always make a major and career yourself since it seems to bother you so much that I didn't make a career for this major.
