4- Senior Hairdresser
5- Manager

Fairly simple procedure. Unzip the files, and place them in My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downlaods

Either that, or if you have Nightlife, you can make a folder labled "Careers" (in downloads) and stow all careers in there. Just another way of keeping the downloads folder orderly.

Good Question.

Good career, I like it. I was thinking that the candy machine doesn't really go with it, though, and maybe you could make it the facial surgery machine (forget what it's called) from the showbiz career as the reward instead. It's not exactly hair, but it's about appearance which is closer than candy. Anyway, just a suggestion.

Emmaline: Did you make sure to unzip the file, first? And it won't always show up in the newspaper or computer since they only show 3 or 5 at a time, so you might need to check them for a few days before it shows up.

It'll turn up sooner or later. Of course I never have the problem of missing careers - or at least not knowing if they're missing - because I can check with the inSIM....

Looks good! Downloading in three... two... one...
hey - it beeped. Why isn't my sim getting it out the oven? YOU LAZY LITTLE TWIT! GET OFF THE PHONE AND PUT THE KITCHEN OUT!!! (lol :D)

:offtopic::uber:YAY!

yup it works with all games and it doesnt write over any as it has its own GUID so it doesnt clash with other things in the game!
