1.0.0 - Basic Captain Eco described


Start
You no longer need Captain Eco trait to fully enjoy this mod. Hovewer, the Captain Eco trait still exists, helping to improve career performance and providing additional interactions. You can add it when creating a Sim. The new trait is available to Sims from the 'Teen' age.

New interactions
All new interaction are stored in Captain Eco pie menu.

Ecological Awareness Skill
The mod enables the development of a new skill called 'Ecology', which increases Sims' ecological awareness. The higher the skill level, the more social interactions Sims unlock.

You can develop this skill by reading the 'Ecology Skill vol. 1-3' books."

You can also develop your Ecology skill to a lesser extent by browsing the internet on your phone (thanks to a new dedicated app).

PHONE:
At level 7 of the skill, you unlock the ability to host ecological workshops to increase the awareness of other Sims and also to earn some money.
At lvl 6 (teen) can give lessons to the youngests.
Kids can attend to eco lessons alwys.
You can also browse web searching for new eco information or play new game 'Plant trees'.
You can also attend to new volunteer events.

ecoCareers:
I've created a new career path that will require further levels of the 'Ecology' skill.
Adult Sims can star career as Environmental Activist (work time: Monday-Friday). Sim will need to develop Ecology skill and on some steps Charisma. The Career has 10 steps.
When a Sim starts working in this profession, they will receive a buff that allows them to brag about their new Eco job.

Work from home assignments are now included in this mod.

Teenagers can start working as 'Eco-Activists' part-time (only weekends) or, if you decide they should drop out of school, they can work full-time (the 'Environmental Activist').Teenagers also receive a buff and a new interaction.

Children can participate in volunteer activities in two paths (Only when you have an expansion pack that allows children to attend extracurricular activities.):
- Street Steward
- Tree Guardian

As it is volunteer activities, children will not get any money for their work.
When they start extracurricular activities in one of these two paths, they will receive a buff that allows them to boast about being like adults

New Green Books
Additionally, I have created new books for regular reading:

-Genre: SCI-FI
greenbookscifi

-a book for toddlers
toddlersbook

Now you can read to toddlers and raise awareness of why environmental protection is important for the planet we live on.

I hope my mod will be well received. I'm new to the community, and I wanted my first mod to be comprehensive and introduce exciting gameplay.
