This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
*Note*: When using custom majors, the game may sometimes randomly show custom majors when Sims apply for majors. If this happens, you may have to assign maxis-made majors to Sims using SimPE

This is my first major. It should go pretty well with the Lawyer Career by Bobbling. All the class titles are listed below. It does not replace any major since it is an add-on. The icon is the same as the Literature Major because my graphic changing abilities are pretty low. I'd LOVE if someone could help me make an icon. I'd give whoever full credit, of course. The timings etc of the classes are not changed from the literature major, but i will definitely work on them to make them more unique.

Law: The body of rules and principles governing the affairs of a community and enforced by a political authority. Those with a law degree will be able to practice it for all the Sims in the city.

Freshman Class First Half: Legal Analysis And Research I
Freshman Class Second Half: Legal Analysis And Research II
Sophmore Class First Half : Introduction To Courtroom Trials
Sophmore Class Second Half: Traditional Legal Practices
Junior Class First Half: Legal Case Studies
Junior Class Second Half: Ethics And Implications Of Law
Senior Class First Half: Different Sectors Of Law
Senior Class Second Half: Legal System Of The Sims

How to Use Custom Majors In Sims 2 University

1.Use SimPE Version 0.30 or newer,

2.Download the major, extract it to your My documents/ea games/the sims 2/downloads folder.

3.In your SimPE/Data folder there should be two files additionalcareers.xml and additionalmajors.xml. Open

the additionalmajors.xml file in notepad.

4.If you have NEVER used custom majors, erase everything in that file and copy this into it and save:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<item value="0xEC180D32">Law</item>

If you already HAVE custom majors, just add this line under all the other lines of existing custom majors:
<item value="0xEC180D32">Law</item>

5.Once you have saved it, open SimPE. Open your neighbourhood and click on 'Sim Description'. (Make sure it is set to 'Plugin View'. Select the sim you want to assign this major to and click on the 'University' tab.

There will be a drop down list for all majors. The custom ones will be right at the top. Select the major you

want for the Sim and click 'commit'.

Feedback, comments etc. will definitely be appreciated. :P

this is currently the only way to assign a custom major. Are you sure you have the latest version of SimPE? And did you follow my instructions extremely accurately?

Im sorry, i dont understand what exactly you are right, you can just click "enter" after a current major and copy and paste the new one. For example, i have all the majors on this site and it looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<item value="0x00030D01">Computer Science</item>
<item value="0xEC153F3D">Dance</item>
<item value="0xEC153F3E">Medicine</item>
<item value="0xEC15A203">Music</item>
<item value="0xEC180D32">Law</item>
<item value="0xEC180D33">Marine Biology</item>
<item value="0xEC180D34">Journalism</item>
<item value="0xEC180D35">Fashion Design</item>

thanks for replying; what i mean is that when i copy and paste like you sayit puts a space in between majors and alias and when i try to backspace to remove space it won't work! but i just type it in between and it seems to work.

Am I the ONLY "Simmer" out there who can't understand SimPE at all??? I used to think that I was fairly intellegent...but...DUH! Do I have to know this stuff to use your great careers? If so, then I'm SUNK

Nope, i can bet all my money that there's tons of them out there just like you. But it is fairly easy to learn to use it if you read the instructions in the first post. Tell me how it goes!
