This mod adds some variety to skilling up for careers.

There is a little confusion about how this works. This adds possible alternative skills to count towards promotion, not extra requirements for promotion.

An example of how this works is the music career. Usually you would need to skill guitar to progress that career. Now you can skill guitar, bass guitar, piano, drums, violin or even the snake charmer basket. Whichever skill is highest will be automatically counted as your progress towards promotion.

There are two flavours, one is simply an updated version of the original mod so that it functions with 1.67, while the other has added variable skill metrics to 12 additional careers, including adding ITF skills to relevant 'present day' careers.

Read about the original mod here:

This is a list of the changes I made to the mod:

- This will conflict with anything that modifies the Careers XML.
