The career I’ve been working on is now ready for anyone who may be interested in using it in their game. Below are a few screenshots from the game.
The career was cloned from the medical career, but uses its own unique GUID, so it does not replace any other content. It will show up on the computer and in the newspaper randomly among any other Maxis or custom careers. Since there is already a psychology career on MTS (that focuses on criminal psychology), I labeled this one “Counseling Psychology” to differentiate it in case you have the other career installed also.
There are 10 levels:
- Assembly Troupe Actor
- Assistant Counselor
- School Counselor
- Social Worker
- Family Therapist
- Developmental Psychologist
- Psychology Professor
- Psychology Expert
- Head of Psychology
The carpool comes and goes as it should, and your Sim will get promotions and bonuses as per any other career. This career focuses on charisma and logic, and I made it so that it doesn’t require very many friends to advance (because it always annoys me that promotions are based on how many friends you have).
There are chance cards for each level. Each option has a right and wrong answer, whichever you get depends on whatever the game happens to pull randomly. The wrong answers are never too bad–just losing a skill point or a little bit of money. I don’t like when a bad chance card causes you to be fired or demoted six levels, so I didn’t include that. Only level 10 has a bad outcome of demotion, but it’s only one level so you could easily work your way back up again. Of course, you can always ignore the cards if you want.
Level one does not have a uniform, but the other levels do. The uniforms are from the base game, so you shouldn’t have any problem with your Sim not changing clothes.
As I said, focus on logic and charisma. The different levels have different days and hours that you work. You can see a description of the level you’re at if you hover over the job title, just as with the Maxis careers.
If you have any problems or see anything weird or find misspellings on the descriptions, please let me know! This psychology career focuses on the counseling side of psychology, since that was the branch I wanted for Audrey.
