Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have you ever wanted Kaylyn Langrek to have the proper job when you move her in? Ever had your sim ask the gardener or pizza delivery person to be their roommate but were disappointed to find that there was no job available for them that matched their NPC status? Well with the NPC Career Mega Pack you don't have to worry about that anymore.

They do not overwrite any of the default careers as they come with their own unique GUIDs.



This is my first upload. I've come across a few NPC careers on here and other places but the levels made it so their job status was never right for very long. All the levels for each career have the same name, description, outfit and carpool. The only things that change are the pay, skills, friends and days. 9 out the 10 the careers have custom icons and they came directly from in game icons. Bartender requires Nightlife and Gardener requires Seasons.







I put all the careers into one zip file but they are seperate files and you can choose which to install.

Anyway, enjoy and let me know how you like it! Thanks.

Thank you! It really annoyed me too that when you moved in NPCs they lost their jobs.

LMAO I seriously agree with the Pizza one, I need pizza now! I can't say I agree with Bugs being disgusting though because I love Insects and arachnids, as you can tell from my SN.

These are working great, thank you for making them. These are also good for sims starting out, who may not have chosen their career path or who are not finding the right job in the paper!

You said to correct spelling errors.
I might be wrong, but I'm fairly certain it's flammable.
Although that might just be a typo on here and not in game, haha.
I think I might use this...
Thankies!

Sorry if I listed any that are in it. I haven't downloaded

I'm just another one of those simulated Sims.

I will definetly be doing the nanny, uni prof, headmaster and newspaper delivery. The police officer is kind of redundant since there is a "law enforcement" career already in game. Since there are no school teachers I probably won't be doing that either. Thanks guys!

@ Shady: Thank you I'll change that and re-upload when I get a chance. If it is really bothering anyone don't forget that Bidou's Career Editor in SimPE is really easy to use and it would only take a sec to change it if you wanted to

These are great. I realise when reading this that I'm amazed that no one has made this before or the it wasn't included in the game. I just love you to bits for making such a truely fatastic download to complete the game.

One question, aren't there NPC Professors in University? I never play that part, so it doesn't impact my game, just thought I should ask.

I would love to do all those careers but I'm just a simple gal who uses Bidou's Career editor and most of those outfits aren't in part of the editor and I don't want a bunch of "custom" (not really custom since they are already in game) career outfits cluttering up my downloads folder. I'll probably do the ones that have the outfits available but thats it. Hope thats alright with everyone

This is an awesome group of careers. I will definately be using some of these. An interesting thought, do you know if using SimPE, one could actually make their own sim into an NPC Maid persay? That would be cool if you could.

I'm sure we're all grateful for whichever careers you wish to share with us! They will add a lot more realism to my game and I'm so happy you posted them.

Maybe someone else will be inspired by your example and Kabuto's list to do the others as well.

Yeah but then she would be an NPC and not a playable.
