Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have you always felt that being a literature major should be a little more rewarding than becoming a Slacker or a Criminal? Do you feel that although your own creative writing is not up to par, you are the best person to offer writers un-asked advice about their stories? Then a career in publishing might be perfect for you! This career takes you through all the different aspects of the publishing process and you can even start working for the publishing company as a teen! If you are one of the lucky ones with a literature major, this will give you a boost when you start your career.

I have created two different versions: an adult career and a teen/elder career. Each version comes with chance cards for each level. The skills required for the adult career are: creativity, charisma and logic. The skills required for the teen/elder career are: charisma and logic. The career reward is the golf course from the business career.

Important Information
  • No expansion packs required. Uniforms, carpool and career reward are all from basegame careers.
  • EP compatible.
  • Teen/Elder career is linked to Adult career. When teens grow up, they automatically move on to the adult career.
  • Literature major is linked to Adult career, which means that sims with a literature degree can start the career at a higher level.
  • A degree is not required for this career, so University Life is not required.
  • Both careers have their own Guid, they do not overwrite Maxis careers.
  • All levels of both careers have their own chance cards.
  • Teen/Elder career requires the following skills: charisma and logic.
  • Adult career requires the following skills: charisma, creativity and logic.

I have received a few PMs asking about translations. If you want to translate it for your own private use, that is of course absolutely fine. However, please do not share your translations anywhere. If you are willing to provide me with a translation, that's great! Please leave a comment and I'll send you all the information.

I have tested the career and checked all texts for spelling errors and everything should be fine. However, I'm only human so please inform me if you find any mistakes or problems.

Additional Credits:
Without the following people, this career would have taken at least another year to finish. Thanks to: karen lorraine for providing me with info on real life publishing houses, Leefish for always being right about everything and Echo for answering my questions in the create forum.
Also, thanks to the writers of the different tutorials here at MTS and the creators of SimPE and Bidou's career editor.
