hi, can you tell me where the buttons are on .60.1, or whatever version of SimPE? like when you click on object data, for step 2 (The guid)

If you have a request please explain it thoroughly! (At least one and a half paragraphs & supply the needed pictures / meshes, or else I will throw it away without looking at it and I will not "PM" you that I will not do it.)

Hello Super Fly. I seem to be having a problem trying to open object data. I bring up my created career in SimPE. Find the object data part in the resource tree. But thats where it ends. Nothing comes up to the right at all. I can click forever and never see anything. Any idea why that may be? Thanks in advance for any help you can give. BTW I do know that I will have to make it EP ready also due to it only having 104 instances.

Thanks IgnorantBliss that seemed to do that trick!

Thanks for the help I actually have the career done. Now I have another question. How would I go about adding a custom icon? Not that it's all that important just would be a nice touch! Thanks again in advance.

My career has 108 files, but it doesn't show up when installing The Sims 2 Seasons, instead the game crashes. What should I do?

i was wondering how i start as in what is the first step because i dont no how to do this:
'The Guid and Group ID

In order for a career to not overwrite anything, the guid and group ID need to be changed. Let us take an example of a career where these values have not been changed.'

please help

If you read on, both the GroupID and the GUID things are explained well.

Hmmmmn...
I have the game in other language (portuguese)...
I saw someone, in somewhere, saying that the solution is to change the "texts". I don't know what are the texts and don't know what to do...
Some careers are not showing up correclty. It just appears like a second "slacker carrer" or a second "medical carrer".
What do I have to do?
Can someone help me, please? Y.Y

I followed this step by step, but some users are saying my career <i>still</i> overwrites another. I believe (although have not concluded) that it's because I did not replace the Orig. and Fallback GUIDs, since it didn't say to in this tutorial. Since I went through and read outdated tutorials, it says that you must replace those two. Is this correct? And if so, could you edit your tutorial to include those steps?

Great tutorial, thanks. I have a question, though. When you make your career EP ready, does that make it incompatible with the base game?

No, that should make the career compatable with both the base game and the EP's

If you are new to SimPe, I guess that you still have to create your career.
This tutorial is about fixing an already existing career to make it compatible with University and newer EPs.

If you haven't create your custom career, yet, then follow THIS TUTORIAL. When done, come back here and read this tutorial to be sure that your career is "EP ready".

A custom career should always appear in the game, if at least these two conditions are met (please double check, even if you are already 100% sure ) :

1) A new GUID has been correctly registered and written into the OBJD
2) All the files are assigned to GroupID 0xFFFFFFFF (if in doubt, do a Fix Integrity).

Plus, in order to be compatible with the EPs, it must have 89 BCONs.

If the requirements above are correct, then check the career in game using the testing cheats: open the cheatbox and type boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true; then load a lot, hold down the Shift key and click on the newspaper: all the existing careers should be listed in the menu.

Be sure that you don't have in the Downloads some older version of your career.

Open the career in SimPE and look in the top-left panel ("Resource tree"); there is an entry "Behaviour Constant (BCON)", with a number in brackets next to it. If the number says "(89)", then your career is EP-ready; if it says "(86)", that career will be available only in a base game with no EPs.

There is a tutorial about upgrading careers to EP-ready (LINK), though I don't know how up-to-date it is.
Browse the careers forum, and possibly you can find other tutorials about this subject.

I'm not exactly an expert, but if you post your faulty career here, I will take a look.

Your career is perfect. Perhaps giving to the package a name that ends in ".package" would help
Jokes apart, your file is named "Alundran.career": rename it as "Alundran_career.package", or any other name that ends with ".package" and it will work fine (any file with extension other than ".package" is ignored by the game).
