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.
Medical major for that future doctor in the family. It's based on the physics major so the requirements that are needed for that career is what this one follows. Let me know if it's ok and shows up in the game, and if it happens to show up as an option when choosing a major -- s'il vous plait! It's updated for all languages and has it's own icon (a red wheelchair icon -- like the ones you see on parking signs, yah that one).

As you know you've got to edit the SimPE additional majors .xml file itself (located in the folder: SimPE/data/additional majors.xml) to get it to work. Open the file with notepad or word pad to do this. The code you will insert is (copy and paste this):

<item value="0xEC153F3E">Medicine</item>
Put it between the <alias></alias> brackets. Should look something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<item value="0xEC15A203">Music</item>
<item value="0xEC153F3D">Dance</item>
<item value="0xEC153F3E">Medicine</item>
NOTE: I have additional majors in my file so that's why the music shows up.
Save and exit.

Open SimPE, open a neighborhood, click on sim browser, click the sim you'd like to have the major, click on the university tab in the plug-in view, in majors select dance (should be at the very top), commit and save. When you go into your game it should be there activated on the sim. I suck at tutorials so I hope you understand what I just said.

This should not overwrite anything it has its own guid.

Put the file itself in your downloads folder for TS2. Then go into that SimPE folder, open up the data folder, open the additional majors .xml file with notepad or wordpad, then edit the file as said above, then save it. Go into SimPE itself -- start the program -- open up a neighborhood, open the sim browser and find the sim that you want to assign the major to. Then when you open the sim, make sure the plugin tab is selected, within that click on the university tab, then go to the majors form box, select the Medicine major which should be at the very top, commit and save. Start the game and go into your university, the sim should now have that as their major.

Yah unfortunately they wont show up in the computer or via phone, I'm not sure how to override that at this point. But the one sure way to get it in game at the moment is to use simPE, when we have this figured out then it will become easier. It isnt the same as in choosing a career when all the options can show in game, I guess this is more like choosing an aspiration in that there is a specific pinwheel that shows up with the icons.
