Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATE: I have fixed the issue with the Chance Cards taking/giving too much money. Please redownload this career. It WILL overwrite itself.

This career is in response to numerous requests that I have received. This is the same as my Stay-at-Home Parent Career. It WILL overwrite the other career. Everything is the same, except the Sim will go to work from 10-11am.

For full details please see the original thread here: Original Career

Fantastic! My sims find it rather hard to wake up early morning, LOL! This one is so much easier.

You need to put the career (after it's unrared) into your Downloads folder. The career may not show up right away when you do a job search. If you want it immediately you must use the boolprop cheat.

I am not taking requests at this time. I have just started graduate school and I cannot be sure how much spare time I am going to have. You can PM me with a request if you want, but I cannot guarantee that I will do it (or that I will even see the message right away).

I really like this idea,thankyou for making it. I do have a couple of questions though.

Was this intended as a real career or just a way of getting a little extra cash while the kids are little?

Will the lv 10 chance card penalty of -10k+, as it's written, suffer from the same feature/bug in Bidou's Career Editor that multiplies all money with 1000 from level 7 and up as discribed in the
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...5#startcomments post? See; 22nd Aug 2006, 01:44 PM # 28 by Kimsie

The max all skill requirements to reach lv10 seems rather harsh. But if it was never really intended as a full time career choice I guess it wouldn't really matter. Same would go for the total skill wipe from the lv7 chance card.

Please don't think I'm trying to pick this apart, I'm just trying to understand what it's intended for.

having a stay at home career.......wouldn't that make your sims lazy, or is it only available to parents.

People don't get paid to take care of their own kids, but I guess our sims can..........

Maybe they don't, but they sure should! Parenting is the HARDEST job there is, if done properly.

Thanks, love it. This is a good one, however my poor sims are made to work 7 days a week...I thought we'd get the weekends off.

Tell me about it!!!!

We have 7 kids (in RL!), I only wish we got paid to look after the little ankle-biters like my lucky Sims do!

Just a quick reply to some of these posts. This was never intended as an actual "career". I originally made it because it is so hard financially for sims to have one parent stay home all the time. I real life one parent can work two jobs, but in the game that's not possible. The seven days a week thing is a reflection of the fact that parents work seven days a week. I have no idea if any bugs will happen with the chance cards. I am a full time college student and the mother of three kids, ages 5, 3, and 1, so I have very little time. Please PM me with any bugs and I will try to take care of them, but I cannot promise anything. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Thanks1
