Custom Career Ideas

Custom Career Ideas

Postby Anya » May 23rd, 2018, 11:07 pm

So, because I'm a complete crazy person who can't stop starting projects, I've been thinking about making some custom careers lately. I know my way around SimPE pretty well, so I don't think I'll have trouble creating them, but I figured I might as well workshop the ideas a bit before really jumping into the custom-career deep end.

Current ideas are as follows...


Software Development
Because really, this is one of the biggest, most lucrative fields these days.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Creativity, Mechanical
Networking Requirements: ~8 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts at Intern or Tech Support and goes up to Tech Entrepreneur. Possible mid-levels include QA Tester, Coder, Startup Founder, and Project Lead.
Can Roll As LTW For: Knowledge, Fortune
BACC Unlock: university degree in Mathematics OR own all buyable computers (not including Humble's if you have the nohumble mod).


Finance
For when you get sick of the Business career fluff.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Charisma, undetermined (probably Creativity)
Networking Requirements: ~8 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts at Bank Teller, but I'm not sure where it should end. Probable promotion levels include Personal Financial Advisor, Actuary, and Stockbroker.
Can Roll As LTW For: Fortune
BACC Unlock: Finance is open to any Sim with a diploma or the Financial Advice For Cash aspiration benefit.


Engineering
You have that Mechanical skill, so use it!
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Mechanical, Logic, Creativity
Networking Requirements: ~6 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided.
Can Roll As LTW For: Knowledge
BACC Unlock: Tinkering hobby plaque or gold Robotics badge.


Veterinary
Animals need doctors too!
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Logic, Cleaning, possibly Charisma
Networking Requirements: ~7 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, earliest levels are probably Pet Store Cashier and Veterinary Receptionist, high levels involve managing an animal hospital and might turn your Sim into Doctor Doolittle or something, because this is a game with mad scientists, dinosaur cloners, space pirates, and superheroes.
Can Roll As LTW For: Family, Knowledge
BACC Unlock: a position in Veterinary opens for every 10 playable pets.


Nonprofit
For the philanthropic and opinionated.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Charisma, Creativity, undetermined
Networking Requirements: ~15 family friends
Promotion Levels: undecided, starts with things like Pamphlet Pusher and Protest Sign Designer, ends up with Philanthropist.
Can Roll As LTW For: Family, Popularity
BACC Unlock: undecided


Retail
A career to inflict upon Sims you hate.
Spoiler:
Skill Requirements: Charisma, Cleaning, Body
Networking Requirements: ~10 family friends
Promotion Levels: Night Crew Janitor, Stock Associate, Cashier, Shift Lead, Assistant Manager, Floor Manager, Union Organizer, Human Resources Representative, Store Manager, District Manager.
Can Roll As LTW For: Nobody. Nobody rolls LTW's for retail.
BACC Unlock: one position per Sim owned retail business that opens, plus one for each one that reaches level 10.



I might not do all of these, of course... but I'd still like any feedback or suggestions you guys might have!

These are really neat, I like the BACC requirement. For the Vet one you could do fish tank scrubber/algae scrubber as entry level, that's what we used to make interns do at work.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!
