Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
12/17- Update- It has been driving me crazy that with the fire service career I could not get the fire engine to pick you up for work. While the package was up for testing I have been working on it and the fire engine will now pick you up for job levels 1,2,4, and 5. I have not received any problems from the testers on the pre-release testing so I am going to call this one tested. If any problems do come up please let me know. If you had previously installed the package you will need to replace the fireservicecareer.package and add the fireenginevehicle.package. Enjoy.



Attached a new fire service career. I know there are a couple of others up, but I have checked and my chance cards are much different. This career also includes two repaints of Maxis carpool vehicles (see attached pics), uniforms, and a repainted object as the reward. It also includes custom icons. One note, I only have chance cards for the first nine levels. I tried to make everything base game compatible, including the vehicles. All items are recolors of Maxis items. Below is the description. All feedback is greatly appreciated.

Name of career: Fire Service
Type: Adult Only
Status: Pre-release
Reward: Recolor of pinball machine

GUID:
Career Adult: 0x003F5500

Overwrites a base career? No
Pre-EP compliant: Yes
EP1 Compliant: Yes
EP1 Required: No
Languages:All Languages are enabled and are in English.
Chance cards for first 9 levels


Includes uniforms, reward object, and two recolored vehicles with own GUID

Number of Levels: 10

01 Firefighter Recruit
You really needed a job and since your favorite television show was Simergency!, you decided that firefighting would be the career for you. Unfortunately, you will have to pay your dues first by cleaning everything, cooking, and making coffee. Work hard and then you will be able to see some real action.

3 Days $199 per Day Uniform NPC Firefighter

02 Firefighter
You finally moved up from recruit and hopefully there are not too many fire calls so you can perfect your Firehouse Chili. Don't eat too much. You need to stay in shape or you will not be able to keep up when carrying hose and climbing stairs.

4 Days $308 per Day Uniform NPC Firefighter

03 HazMat Technician
Finally, a much deserved pay raise. You deserve it since you now have to deal with mysterious substances. At least you get to play with cool tools to figure out what they are. Make sure you get your rest between calls. Walking around in that level A Suit takes a lot out of you.

3 Days $460 per Day Uniform Recolor of paramedic uniform

04 Driver/Operator
Ahh, you are finally in the driver's seat now. All that time riding in the engine and now it is your chance to show them what you've got. Just remember to watch the road or you will be buying a new fire engine.

4 Days $530 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis t-shirt(male and workout female)

05 Lieutenant
You have just been promoted to Lieutenant and not a moment too soon since you kept backing into things with the truck. Now it is you problem when things start to go wrong. Keep the crew in line without letting the power go to your head and you can move up to Captain.

4 Days $615 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis blue police

06 Captain

Thank goodness you became a Captain because you really can not spell Lieutenant. You not only need brains to succeed, but also a little bit of charisma. Keep working on balancing those skills and you will be moving up.

5 Days $725 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis blue police


07 Battalion Chief

Well you finally get to wear that white shirt. You are really going to miss riding in the fire engine though. You are getting closer to the top now. You are going to think fast on your feet and be creative to move up.

4 Days $856 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis white police

08 Assistant Fire Chief

You are the Chief's number one person now. It has its advantages, but not when the crew is driving him crazy. You need to help keep the crew in shape and make sure the Chief is happy. Not an easy task, but if you can pull it off you may be the next Fire Chief.

3 Days $979 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis white police


09 Fire Chief

Finally you are the boss, or so you think. You have moved up to Chief. Instead of doing what you want, you are spending all your time doing paperwork and trying to keep everyone happy. You are starting to miss being in the trenches, but knowing that you have a great crew working for you makes up for it.

4 Days $1459 per Day Uniform Recolor of maxis military uniform

10 Fire Commissioner
You are no longer at the fire station, but will need all your years of training for this job. Now it is you chance to use your experience to make sure all the departments have the tools and training needed to do their jobs. Hopefully you can be the one to cut through the red tape and make it happen.


Sample chance card: It is fire prevention week and $Me has been asked to help put on a show for 100 first graders at the local school. Since $Me is the newest person at the station, $Me does not have much of a choice of roles. $Me has been asked to dress as Barky, the fire Dalmatian. $Me will have to walk around in a hot suit all day. One of the Firefighters has offered to trade and let $Me run Frankie, the remote control fire engine in exchange for $Me taking over his night to cook dinner. Should $Me dress as the dog or control the fire engine?

Looks Good. Just one suggestion though, you would become a driver/operator long before you have a chance at HazMat. Trust me, I was an EMT/HazMat Tech before my disability.. Anyway, like I said it looks pretty good and I'll give it a whirl..

This is the first time ever that I'll try a custom career in my game.
I've always refused to do it because it looks to me that there are plenty of careers in the game already , but I always missed a firefighter career, so I'll give your job a try.

Thanks for the time and effort in doing this, you're greatly appreciated!

Good job. Also on your hard work in making this possible. I had read a post years ago that it was a problem getting the NPC driven fire truck as a carpool to work because of difficulties. But you have shown us and you have succeeded. Congratulations!

Hey, could you tell me how to get the proper vehicles to come for the careers? I tried getting the gardener, maid etc vehicles to come but it always ended up messing up and just having the regular service vehicles come and my sims not being able to go to work. I would LOVE to be able to add the proper vehicles to mine!

It has been a long time since I did this, but here is what I remember. I do not know how to take a non carpool vehicle and directly make it into a carpool vehicle. The easy way is to clone an existing carpool vehicle and repaint it. The hard way is to clone an already existing carpool vehicle and change out the body with a different one. This is how I did the fire engine. The problem is when you change the body it is really difficult to line up the doors and wheels. When I did it last time I read all the car tutorials and looked at the structures of a lot of the items by Fresh Prince to help me line up doors and wheels. Some of the people who do cars can probably help. I am pretty much retired from the Sims right now. Hope this helps.

this is a great mod! One request: Can you make the Fire Chief's car & the fire "van" into vehicles that you can buy & place on your lot? I'd love to have them all.

"I am pretty much retired from the Sims right now."

Apparently your reading comprehension needs a bit of work there jacob.

Thanks for the explanation tiger!

I didn't see your request before I posted this, but there's no need to assume me to be stupid.

Sorry guys, have not been on here in a while. If you want to have the fire vehicles you need to first download a driveable ambulance and driveable police car. Then you need to switch out the paint with my files. I have no problem if anyone wants to use my paint for recolors. PLEASE check with Fresh Prince, Vampcat, DBCAB or who ever has it and make sure they are cool with the recolors if you post them.

PS... I want this career in the Sims3....tell EA to put it in there!!!

I would think that EMT would fit in fine either before fighterfight or before recruit. Engineer is the term for a driver and it's the same level as a paramedic, just a step up from Firefighter. Hazmat and RRT require more experience, at least for our department. Still, great job, just trying to offer constructive advice. I'm so glad that I've finally got a firefighter career, thanks so much!

I´ve tried this career with AL/M&G and it works fine. I´ve noticed only a jump bug on the reward object.
