We have the Missy Hissy's Job Center Discord Server (live, real time chat) with chat rooms that cater specifically to TS3 career modders.

Sims 3 career modding does come with limitations and it's all about making peace with them and finding hacks / workarounds to get as close to your vision as possible, it's a more reasonable (and less nerve-wrecking) aim, I find.

Your idea isn't that difficult to accomplish. Off the top of my head (and I haven't had coffee yet, so this is impressive!), this is your best option:

1) You can create your career with 1 single level. You can have the only requirement for the job being a good mood, so no skills needed. When a sim reaches the top of the progress bar, they gain automatic raises - usually by a few simoleons, if memory serves - if there's no additional levels to promote to. You don't need to set a carpool and you set False for the <HasBoss> field.

Hopefully that helps but feel free to message me if you're stuck with anything.

This makes perfect sense and feels actually doable 8D
Should I just leave the <str> and <key> parts for level 2- 10 with BLANK or should I delete them?

You can delete them. They're not needed and won't relate to any code so they can be safely deleted.

Are there any current or updated tutorials on how to just modify the text on an existing career? I have been looking for this to make a few changes to the job position name in some of my custom careers. So far when I modify the name in the xml file the text is blank when I play the game.

Edit the STBL is usually the best bet. When you edit the XML file, it changes the code so the STBL files no longer recognise the name, which is why it's coming up blank. If you edit the STBL file for your language, the names will change in game but the code remains the same
