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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Analyze and draft interior spaces, and convert your design concepts into final models. Understand structure and interior construction; building systems and related codes; equipment and components; and plan and design space using computer-aided design software.

- This major is not intended to overwrite any preexisting Maxis majors (custom GUID = 0x00357602 or 0x00357605, depending on Version).
- This major includes a custom icon.
- This major is intended to go along with my Interior Design Career (but does NOT have to).
- The classes and descriptions are based on courses I am personally taking in order to obtain my Bachelor's in Fine Arts, with a major in Interior Design. I would appreciate if you didn't take ideas or courses (or anything else) from my major without asking first. Please do not claim this download, or any of its parts, as your own creation.
- All text typed in Word (in English) in order to spell- and grammar-check.
- Please comment with feedback, problems, etc. I’d love to know how this works in your games
- I have all EPs and no SPs. This may or may not have affected the download; I don't know. However, you obviously need University. You may also need Nightlife, as it changes the way .package files work or something.
- I've included both a .rar file and a .zip file for those with a preference.

COURSES (in order)
- Interior Design Principles: Learning to Deal with Idiots
- Drafting and CAD: Your New Best Friends
- Perspective and Sketch Rendering: Making Your Stuff Look Pretty
- Residential and Commercial Design: Finding Out Which Will Make You Pull Out Your Hair
- Lighting and Acoustics: Ways to Spite the Builders
- Building Systems and Codes: So You Don’t Fuck/Mess* Up
- Project Management: Learning to be “The Boss”
- Senior Internship: Like “the Real Life,” Only Unpaid
*For courses without swear words, download the PG13 version.

Focuses on Creativity(5), Charisma(4), Cleaning(4), and Logic(4). The other skills require one point in order to become a “well-rounded individual.”
Class times and lengths were cloned from the Art major.

Download and unzip into your \My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.
