The new career is ready. Updated ranks and minor descriptions. No chance cards, and can't make any. I just dn't have the time anymore. The chance cards for the old version are almost done, but the new one won't get any BY ME. Feel free to use sim PE and modify THE NEW VERSION ONLY if you want to. Sorry if i dissapointed anyone...
The New Ranks are...

Airman/Seaman/Fireman
Petty Officer
Chief Petty Officer
Ensign
Lt.
Lt. Comander
Comander
Captain
Admiral
Fleet Admiral

New Career to be done taking suggestions, both to get full sets of chance cards eventually- old one will be left here as well. Check back shortly for updates. I will be making the new one, and it will also have a different guid so you can use both if you like. Thanks.

This is a career requested in a post from my airforce career. I'm no expert, so i did the best i could. Chance cards coming soon. The levels..

1.Patrol Squad Member (PT boat)
2.Patrol Squad Elite
3.Battleship Recruit
4.Battleship Gunman
5.Battleship Captain
6.Aircraft Crewman (Works on aircraft carrier)
7.Lookout
8.Officer
9.Fleet Commander
20. Admiral

I'm no expert on this branch, but i did my best. Custom icon, unique guid, base game compatible, not sure about eps. uniforms from military career. Sorry, but i can't make custom uniforms as body shop dosn't work for me and i don't know how to link the uniforms. Updating asap w/ chance cards.

Your screenshot is so tiny, no one can figure out what that's supposed to be, skiingiggy..........thought you'd appreciate the "heads up" and get something at least 90 x 90 to upload as your screenshot.

Your screenshot is really good now! In fact, I would view your career based on the action shot you replaced the other screenshot with!
Go Navy!
And regarding the comment that your "glaring mistake" was omitting captain, you didn't -- you've got Battleship Captain right there........

Great job, you mentioned not being familiar with ranks, etc. For Navy Officers it would be:

1. Ensign
2. Lieutenant Junior Grade
3. Lieutenant
4. Lieutenant Commander
5. Commander
6. Captain
7. Commodore (technically now called Rear Admiral (Lower Half), but it sounds stupid)
8. Rear Admiral
9. Vice Admiral
10. Admiral

Anyhow, thanks again, great job.

both will work. The only difference is the ranks.

You can also make careers that are longer than 10 levels, so you could also do an enlisted-to-officer type of thing. I'd TOTALLY download that. (If you can't tell from my username, I'm in the Navy )

Ask me about my Luigi Largo Sim.
I'll tell you about the Satanic snowman he made in college. And how he loves cleaning the toilet.

Well...I dunno. Love the Career and everything (My dad, both of my uncles, Grandpa...alot really, were all in the Navy.)

The Rank system is okay, but if you're going have Enlisted and Officer ranks together,
maybe add "Officer Candidate" or "CWO".

I'm slowly working on a neighborhood, which I intend to upload, that will have a Naval base as one of its subhoods. Would it be okay if I included this career as part of the neighborhood?

Aviation Electrician's Mate is a RATE not a RANK.

there is no problem that cannot be solved with the proper application of high-explosive projectiles.
