Racing Career for Pets

By request from Motoxgirl56, I have created this racing career. It was made mostly with dogs in mind, but cats can race too. I know, you've never heard of cat racing, but then again, I'd never heard of sheep racing until I was poking around on the internet trying to get a little inspiration for the icon for this career. So I guess you never know. This career was built off of the Service career, but everything in it is changed from the original with the exception of collars/coats unlocked, since I don't know how to do that. This career uses a different set of required commands to learn than the Service career. Have fun!

Details:
-- Custom icons
-- Complete chance cards, although dog and cat cards are near identical
-- Does not overwrite any careers that I know of

Levels:

1. Trainee ($178/$221)
Your pet may have what it takes to compete as a racing animal. To find out, he must endure a rigorous training program designed to maximize speed, stamina, and motivation. When completed, this program will give him the ability to compete with experienced racing pets. In order to avoid false starts, teach your pet to Stay.

2. Rookie ($420/$499)
Now that your pet is properly trained, it is time to start competing in real races. To advance in this job requires winning, so your pet must stay on his toes and in shape to have a hope. Teach your pet to Come Here if you want him to be a Contender.

3. Contender ($603/$685)
Your pet has proven his ability to win races. In fact, he's become quite accomplished at it. If he can keep up this level of excellence, he will become a Champion in no time at all. Of course, with that level of public attention, your pet better know how to Shake.

4. Champion ($952/$1039)
Your pet has achieved champion status. His ability to win a race no matter what has made him a household name. People and pets wear his number everywhere and decorate their cars with it. Life is good!

Your pet must learn to Stay, Come Here, and Shake

Here's Cyd Roseland's dog Porthos in his moment of glory as he is promoted to Champion:

Cute idea for the icon!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html

Thanks. It seemed appropriate. I wished it looked a little more mechanical, though.

Hey, I have an idea? Why not a Sim version of this? Good job anyway!

Like a NASCAR career? Seems like I've seen one. I wouldn't be the person to write it in any event. I'm not a NASCAR fan so I don't know enough about it to write a career. It would be pretty cool to take the carpools and add numbers and sponsors, though.

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.

I can't find it! I use the boolProp testingcheatsenabled true cheat to get my sim in a custom career, but it doesn't work for my pets. I tried looking in the paper and on the computer for a couple of sim days but I can't find it. Is there something like FrikaC's Majors Made Easier hack to get careers?

I don't know, I've never heard of one. It would probably be specific to pet careers since boolprop works for sims. It showed up fine when I was testing. Maybe you just needed to try longer. I don't use cheats to get my sims into particular jobs except when I'm testing a career, and sometimes it just seems like it takes forever for the right job to show up.

No problem. I usually check every day to see if there's anything on here that needs my attention.

Wonderful work! Me and my simmians thank you!

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something....

Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.
