New Conversion: Photography (requested)

Before you download this career, you need to download the Careers mod from Twallan here: 
Patch 1.31~1.36: The Careers - Phase Ten 
Patch 1.38: The Careers - Phase Eleven for this career to show up in-game! 
Lientebollemeis asked me to convert some of her Sims 2 careers and I was very happy to do that! So this is one of her careers, Photographer!
It was requested for Sims 2 by Maxine190899.
You find here a conversion for the Sims 3. So any additional texts, info etc are by me, but the original idea is from Lientebollemeis and Maxine190899.

Here is the full information for the career for Sims 3. The career has 10 levels and is located at the Business and Journalism Offices. It has one custom tone, Take Photos of Coworkers, which builds the Photography skill.

Career Levels
Photography Career ~ Love taking photos of anything and everything, from that vase of flowers in the hallway, to your best friend dancing drunkenly at the pub last night? Maybe you’ve even had aspirations to become a wedding photographer, or even simply to be paid for the time and effort involved in each photo. This is the career path for you!



Technical Stuff:
This career was made with patch 1.38 and should work with all lower patches. It requires the Base Game and World Adventures to work (since that was the expansion the Photography skill came with) and should work with any other combination of expansion and stuff packs. It works in my game but if you have problems, let me know :)


Translating
Since I'm not fluent in any language other than English, the career is only written in the one language. So if you're interested in translating, download the Language Strings file and open it in Notepad.

Do that for the entire file :)

A lot of people asked to create this and finally I remade them all.
Here's an overview of all the remade careers (+ more information on how and why I made this).
(This career is not seen in the overview as I created it later.)

I also accept requests full time!
If you have a request please go here: bit.ly/p9ymWC

Credits:
All people who requested one or several of these careers
EA Games and Maxis
SimPE
This site without I couldn't create this (all information about careers SPOILER!)
http://bit.ly/OAqLlK
-- (I'm not responsible for changes on this site. If something is not the same as the careers I made that's because it has been changed in the meantime.)

IMPORTANT
I do NOT  take any credit for the levels, descriptions, promotional skills needed, etc. as they are just taken from the Maxis' careers. I tried my best with everything I could not supply from the Maxis career.

Please, don't upload these careers anywhere. If you want to share them, share by the button Twitter, Facebook,...

New FAQ: More help for doing a career request

Update: 2015-07-25

The way of requesting has changed a lot in the past 5 years.
From a simple form to fill out, which people can reach all the time, it's developed to an excelfile on Google Docs (not everyone has MS Office), which I provide from the moment the requester contacts me.
This way I have personal contact with the requester which makes it easier to help with the request. The requester needs to want the career enough to put some effort in it.
The way the file is build gives the requester the chance to see if the career is accepted or not. The file tells you that the request is accepted or not while you're filling it out.
The only reason why a request can be rejected (if the file says the request is accepted): is spelling and grammar.
The file can't check that by itself.

So I still check following things: 
  • Spelling and grammar:
    • I read the descriptions very quickly. If I see just the one mistake, I stop looking further.
      • Punctuation (at the end of a sentence)
      • Do the sentences make any sense?
      • Apostrophe's (you are = you're; your = your)
      • No abbreviations (kinda, gonna,...)
      • Capital letter (Begin of sentence, countries,...)
      • Form of the sentence
  • Descriptions:
    • This is mostly based on MTS's rules. They reject careers for this:
      • Growth in the career
      • Creativity
      • No repetition (like the word now or you)
      • Length of description (at least 4 sentences, (long enough))

This is all found very clearly in the instructions on the file too. A Lot of requests have been accepted so there are people who do follow the instructions correctly.

The form is made in such a way it's nearly impossible to have a reason for rejection.
You need to check two main things. If these are good, the request is accepted and uploaded asap:

  • Spelling and grammar
  • Creativity (length + growth)
