Does anyone know how to add daily tasks to careers?

My Python won't work ?? I downloaded the XZ from this site : https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-337/ : I put it in the C:// directory I unzipped it and attempted to install by clicking on it, but nothing happens. The computer doesn't know what to do with the program. So- thinking it had to be installed in CMD with the use of .exe in the instructions, I tried that, and it just says "inoperable command" D: I've been working on this custom career for over 3 months now. I have created custom uniforms and everything to go with it. It would really stink if I had to trash it, but at this point, I'm losing hope!

Please? Anyone ?

Hi @stephibaby ! I haven't been on this tutorial for a bit, so sorry! You seem to be downloading python from the wrong place. Click on the direct link I provided at the top of the tutorial, and follow the instructions there as well. You should have no problem then!

Please let me know how it goes for you, or if you've solved your issue in the meantime. Best of luck!

Thank you so much! I was very lost and needed to make an animal care career because the one here was FUBAR. I haven't modded since TS2 so this seemed daunting. It really wasn't with your tutorial!

Hello, I apologize for my English, I'm French.
I created some career thanks to this tutorial, but I have a problem adding some fillers.
The name and description of the girl does not position it in the right place. They should find this on the first icon and not the last one.
would anyone have a solution? (I followed all the tutorial without skipping step and it is that with the sector that it poses a problem)

In any career text such as track names, level titles, or descriptions, using characters other than letters, for example numbers or symbols like "/" or "*", can sometimes cause problems, so remove those from your text. Also, go back into the career tool and double check that your images are all in the right place, just as a precaution. Remember to save every time you make changes. If you are still getting a glitch after you re-export the career, I recommend contacting Neia on her forum thread to see if she can help as there may be something more specific wrong.

Hey Simmiller, I'm having a problem importing the file. I made it to step 14 and get the following message:
TypeError: source code string cannot contain null bytes

This is my first time ever using Python and I don't know squat about coding. I have gone through the process a dozen times now and I'm getting the same errors, I have re-exported from the career creator tool, saved the file Python with 3 different names, reinstalled everything...I am at a loss.

This is a quick question that I've tried googling but I'm struggling with. Which text codes stand for which language? I understand that US is English, and JP is probably Japanese and KR Korean, but I'm wondering what each code means within this program as I'm getting mixed results from searching online. Thanks!

@shannenenen
I'm 99.9% sure these are the codes and their languages:

US English
BR Portuguese (Brazilian)
CN Cantonese (Chinese)
CZ Czechoslovakian
DK Danish
ES Spanish
FI Finnish
FR French
DE German
IT Italian
JP Japanese
KR Korean
NL Dutch
NO Norwegian
PL Polish
RU Russian
SE Swedish

@harlequin_eyes
I'm afraid I don't have the answer for you. I don't know much about the technical side of things. I recommend you ask Neia either on here or on the tool forum.

Sorry I can't be of more help!

I had this problem too!!!! The steps i did were
1.Import all files in package folder, and save as - into python33 folder,
then i took the .py file that was in the download zip from Neia and placed it into python, i cmd and copied/pasted the full name of the file with .py into cmd ( before i did the little c:python etc the person said to do and it worked )

This was such a great tutorial until Python had hiccups. The second line in the .py file (I looked at it in IDLE) calls to "import services", but Python it doesn't seem to find it returning:

File "C:\Users\maris\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Marish01_Careers_SillyTestCareerk.py", line 2, in <module>
import services
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'services'
>>>

I tried this in 3.3 and 3.7. I'll put on my thinking cap and try to imagine what that file would be, where it's at and why it's needed. My Python exposure is extremely limited, but there is bound to be some of my experience that will help out. But if there's a quick answer by all means share!

I am not sure I am completely understanding but I think you have a path issue. When you first open command prompt (cmd) enter set path=C:\Users\maris\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37
Python 3.7.0 will not recognize the -O so just enter python to start the program and you're ready to proceed with your import command which in your case would be: import Marish01_Careers_SillyTestCareerk.py
This is going to generate an error message. Disregard it. Your new file will be in the _pycache_ folder and you're all set to go forward with the instructions as printed in the rest of the tutorial.



Side note to Simmiller: Excellent tutorial and I found it very helpful and easy to follow. Python 3.3 has some very serious security issues which may or may not pose a risk simply by having it installed. I opted for 3.7.0 and some trial and error but I've created and tested a career and everything looks good! I also reinstalled Python directly to C:\ to make that path a bit easier to navigate.

So I've followed everything in this guide and I ran into two problems.
One - I get File "C:\Users\pugglerock\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python33\Pugglerock_Careers_Professionalstreamer.py", line 2, in <module>
import services
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'services'

Two - It won't show up in the actual game itself but will show up in the section about mods, so I'm not entirely sure where I'm going wrong.

EDIT - Nevermind I know where I was going wrong! I was importing the entire file and not just the package folder. All done now and works like a chamr Thank you for the guide!

I hope someone can help me. I see some similar posts above but I'm not sure how to fix it based on reading them several times. I must be missing something. I moved my file Moondansr_Careers_Swimming.py to my Python folder C:\Users\dawns\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32 and then entered the command C://Users/dawns/AppData/Local/Programs/Python/Python37-32/Python.exe -O in the command prompt window. Followed by import Moondansr_Careers_Swimming.py and got the error about No module named 'service'.

In my __pycache__ folder I have a file now named Moondansr_Careers_Swimming.cpython-37.opt-1.pyc which isn't a .pyo file. I read that it isn't the same thing but no matter what I do that's all I can get. Will this .pyc file work?

I went forward anyhow and renamed it, adding it to my zip file but it seems odd that I get a .pyc file when all tutorials say it should be .pyo and even show it that way.
Has anyone else had this experience? Is it okay to use the .pyc file that I'm getting?

Is it possible use this tool to fix/update careers made by creators who are no longer active?
