Testers Wanted: HP Hogwarts Career Updated 01/03

The Hogwarts Career is finally here!

This career should not overwrite any of the other careers, and the chance cards are completed for all 10 levels. It doesn't have custom outfits, but it does have different outfits than the other careers. If I figure out how to make custom outfits work for a career, I will try to make some robes.

The levels are: House Elf, Gamekeeper/Keeper of the Keys, Caretaker, Librarian, Quidditch Referee, Substitute Professor, Professor, Head of House, Deputy Headmaster/Headmistress, and Headmaster/Headmistress. The promotion requirements, wages, and hours are listed in the text file.

Also, I just wanted to add that I don't own anything related to Harry Potter/ Hogwarts of any of the associated trademarks, so this Sims2 career should only be for personal use and not redistributed for profit...

EDIT 01/03/05:

I fixed the chance cards for the Headmaster/Headmistress level that were all mixed up. The new version should replace the original without any problems, but if you don't care about having wonky chance cards on the top level, it shouldn't be necessary to redownload. If you do care, here's the new version (v2).

I also added a teen career that has only 2 levels, Prefect and Headboy/Girl. This seemed to work alright on my machine, but please let me know if you have any problems. The teen career should be set to upgrade to the adult Hogwarts career upon age transition.

Oh, and if anyone is multilingual and wants to translate this to another language, I would be glad to add those other language options. I know a little bit of German, French, and Japanese, but not enough to translate correctly.

The first 30 people or so that have downloaded the teen career will probably want to redownload it; I realized I uploaded the wrong version, the one that doesn't upgrade to the adult Hogwarts career. The new version (2) should.

I am working on making a unique object for the career reward object, but I'm not sure when I will get that working correctly.

***Edit June 7th 2006***

An version of this career that works with all game versions can be found here- http://forums.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=163706

I didn't discover the series till about a month ago. I fell in love with it, and I'm 22. Have watched all the movies, up to the second book. I will have to test this out.

Looks nice to me. If there is a teen career, I suppose it could go student, prefect, Head Girl/Boy... although those aren't actually pay positions.

Unzip the file and place the .package file in your Downloads directory. It should be C:\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads

house elf doesnt make much sense cuz its a race not a occupation

Yes, and we all know how easy it is to be a Quidditch referee. (besides, not to nitpick, its actully a species, not a race. Race means they're human)
Top Secret Researcher
#23 Old 3rd Jan 2005 at 4:55 PM
Meh, who really cares? This is a great career. Thanks!

The only problem I have found involves the Headmaster/Headmistress Chance card.

Andmaybe you could do the teen job like harlequinnx said, just make it say somewhere about scholorships or allowences.

I forget the order of the Harry Potter movies... which one was the 3rd?... If it was Prisoner of Azkaban, I would have to agree... I was a little disappointed in that one as well.
