Default Money on changecards
I looked into the BCons money rewards / loosings for the change cards.

It seems that from card 7 onwards you have to divide the money by 1000 and enter that value.

say you will win on every card when choosing Option A, money worth 10.000 simoleons your values in SimPE should be:
card: value:
1 10000
2 10000
3 10000
4 10000
5 10000
6 10000
7 10
8 10
9 10
10 10

(I didn't convert it to hex but you don't have to use that with the latest version of SimPE.)

It seems the game wil multiply the money value by a 1000 from card 7 onwards.

Ok, I've looked, and I just know I'm missing something but...

I made the Photography career, and it appears to work fine in my game (used the Business career as the base, but everything is changed.). Fixed the 'Group ID' problem (changing it over to 0xFFFFFFFF). Has a unique GUID from the registration site... So... Now...

My question is: I've been asked about converting the 'text lists', and I'm not at ALL sure how that's done. I really can't see myself finding language conversions for everything (although I would if I knew how! I only know english), but it seems to be something important, so....

that's easy kat, you click on it in english, and click change in all and it will change all the languages over. i mean hilight the text in the text list so it cxomes up in the little box then click the change in all and after you have done all of them all down the list, yes a long time, click commit and save, recheck by picking dutch or something to make sure it's worked, i've had it not save a few times.

ok now i have a question, i know the career files all pull up the JobDataGlobals 0x7F8F4EB6. so i extracted that and had a look at it. now what i want to do is use use the one i extracted instead of the game one. but SimPE wont allow me to change the global data. is there a work around, is this something i shouldn't be experimenting with?
see cause i am working on a career but i want the people to stay at home. the thing i need to change is in there, or at least it looks that way right now. i have been known to be wrong.

How do I change the GUID of a career? I used a copy of the business career to make a new one, but it over-wrote the in-game business career. I assume by changing the GUID, it will become a seperate career. Anyone help?

Default No loading in family view
So i've made my career, changed the GUID #, changed the Group # (first I tried 0xFFFFFFFF, but now have my own #) and cannot get it to work in the game. Every time I try to load a family (any family) the computer is perpetually in hourglass mode (not frozen, it just never opens up the family). I'm so upset about it because I spent so much time editing everything, including the chance cards. Anyone experience this before? Any hints?

So if I change the text files, this will solve the problem of the career not showing up in non English versions?

Has no one had a problem loading families after putting a career package file in their downloads folder? I'm not sure what the problem could be, or what to check for in SimPE. I changed the GUID # and group number... no problem there...

PLEASE REPLY!!! I have a great career with chance cards and everything just waiting to be shared!

naidia, in SimPE you have to got to jpg/tga/png Image, there you'll find a list of the 4 images that can be changed.

Whereabouts are the career packages? I can't get the Career Editor to show-up at all, now it seems I have to put a career package into the downloads folder first?

Ok I think I made a big mistake..

Is there a way to fix this..I did a teen/elder career but when i test it the first level is the second and then it came back.There is only 2 levels maybe thats the problem...Anyway when I look in Text lists the first level is under Unemployed.Anyone know how to fix this?

First you have to put the simpe.career.plugin.dll in C:\Program Files\SimPE\Plugins


1. Download a Base Career from this post and unzip it on your desktop.
2.Open SimPE 3.Go to File > Open... Load the career you want to change.
4.Go to Plugins > Career Editor it should load it

This has worked and I can view the careers now, but it hasn't really helped in what I want to do. I am trying to get the custom careers to show-up in SimPE and/or TS2 Enhancer, rather than coming out as "Unknown" in SimPE and "Unemployed" in TS2 Enhancer. I want to be able to put some of the townies into them, so my Sims can still bring people home from work. I can't find anything I can change in SimPE - the names of the careers show-up, so I don't know what else I can do to get the "Unknown" to disappear and the careers to be listed with the others.

Maybe it isn't possible?

I have been busily trying to document the "plugin-less" creation method and as part of that I have found how to get the career icons to display correctly for the reward. This is achieved by binding the reward object to the career, as opposed to the step to bind the career to the reward.

I have listed the steps in the docs concerning this below. Keep in mind that this is still only in first draft stage, so is not yet consistent in how the steps are layed out, but it should be usable. :D

11. Reward
a. Prepare reward object
i. Flag object as a reward type object
1. Find the object you wish to make the reward (clone it if not a custom object)
2. Select Object Data \ Object Data
3. Change 0x0090 to 2048 decimal (tells S2 this is a reward object only)
4. Commit
5. Note the GUID of the object
ii. Bind Reward to Career
1. Select “Object Data” from Filetypes
2. Right-click instance “0x000041A7” from “Packed Files”
3. Select extract and save the file in a temporary directory
4. Using a hex editor, edit the SimPE packed file (not the XML file)
5. Change the values 0x000000A8 – AB to the reversed GUID of the career you are binding to (e.g. if the GUID is 0x2C89E95F, the values entered would be mapped as A8:5F A9:E9 AA:89 AB:2C)

6. Save the file
7. Back in SimPE, Right-click instance “0x000041A7” from “Packed Files”
8. Select “Replace”
9. Choose the file you just edited
iii. Close and save the object
b. Bind Career to Reward
i. Open career package again
ii. Select Behaviour Function in the Filetypes list
iii. Select instance 1001 in the Packed Files list
iv. Select line 2 (Manage Inventory). It will highlight.
v. Insert the object GUID
1. There are 8 values for both operands and unknowns (O0 - O7, U0 - U7). The GUID must be entered into O5 - U0 backwards. For example, if the GUID of the object is “A1B2C3D4”, then the values entered would be U0 : D4, O7:C3, O6:B2 O5:A1.
2. Commit File
