IMPORTANT PAID-TIME OFF (PTO) VERSIONS

All new careers (and updated old careers) I made are in different versions (Default PTO7, PTO3 and PTO5). Now finally after many years it has been made possible to create a global mod for PTO3 and PTO5.
So if you'd like to have PTO3 or PTO5 versions of my careers.
Please, go here to download the global mod: http://modthesims.info/d/638199/pto-global-mods-versions-3-and-5.html
You can keep the PTO3 or PTO5 versions you already have in your downloadfolder. You don't need to redownload the career.

If you have any questions, you can contact me by Facebook Messenger (sidebar on this blog).

New Idea: Friends - The One Where Rachel Smokes - S5E18

In general the idea is to give you one episode per blogpost. In every blogpost I'll shortly describe what happens with the six main characters of Friends in that certain episode. SPOILER
You can then play this in the game as you wish.
The blogpost about the personality, family tree,... of the six main characters in general is found here: http://bit.ly/FriendsGeneralMain
                                  

General happenings season 5:
Season five starts with Ross and Emily's wedding in London. The season features Monica and Chandler trying to keep their new relationship a secret from their friends. Phoebe gives birth to triplets in the show's 100th episode. She gives birth to a boy, Frank Jr. Jr., and two girls: Leslie and Chandler. Emily states that the only condition in which she would remain married to Ross is if he stops all communication with Rachel. Ross agrees, but during a last dinner with all six main characters together, Emily phones Ross and, upon discovering Rachel is there, realizes she does not trust him, which ends the marriage. Phoebe begins a relationship with a police officer, Gary (Michael Rapaport), after finding his badge and using it as her own. Monica and Chandler go public with their relationship, to the surprise and happiness of their friends. They decide to get married on a trip to Las Vegas, but, change their plans after witnessing Ross and Rachel drunkenly stumble out of the wedding chapel.
More episodes of Friends

The One Where Rachel Smokes - S5E18
Ben auditions for a soup commercial and Joey comes along to try for a part as well. Things are going great until Joey gets paired with another child and it gets competitive. Joey has a little trouble with his line, however. Rachel starts her new job at Ralph Lauren; she soon feels left out because all the decisions get made on smoking breaks, and she doesn't smoke. She tries to solve the problem by taking up the habit; it doesn't work out too well, so she convinces her co-workers to quit... but that lasts about a day. Phoebe and Monica plan a surprise birthday party for Rachel. Monica, in her usual fashion, takes over completely, leaving Phoebe in charge of only cups and ice. Phoebe decides to make the most of it; she makes everything imaginable out of cups, and serves every kind of ice.

Rachel

It's her first day at her new job. It appears that her boss, Kim, and co-worker smoke and discuss all the important discissions while smoking. So she starts to smoke too and tries to convince the others to quite smoking, but it backfired so that her boss tells her she needs to keep on stop smoking and so she cannot go on the trip to Paris. She's very surprised for the surprise party because even Chandler's birthday is before hers.

Monica

She's really starting to organize Rachel's  surpriseparty. She and Phoebe wanted to do an intimate dinnerparty, but then Monica decided on her own they are not going to do that. Phoebe is sad that Monica has done everything, but there's still cups and ice.

Phoebe

She's in charge of cups and ice for Rachel's birthdayparty. Everyone loves her ice and not Monica's Tasconane fingerfood. For Joey's coming up birthdayparty she wants to be in charge of beer, but that's all there is to do.

Joey

He and Ben are auditioning for a commercial where a son and his dad eat soup and enjoy it. Ben and Joey cannot be in the same commercial because they don't look like father and son. He and Ross have a discussion about it. Joey feels Ben should step aside. But Joey had trained with tomatosoup, but he gets noodlesoup. That's why he didn't get the part. He thinks Ben is his godson, but Chandler is Ben's godfather.

Chandler

He's Ben's godfather. He loves Phoebe's snowcones.

Ross

He's busy with Ben's audition together with Carol and Joey who is auditioning as the dad. They both didn't get the part.

New Teen Career: BSO Organizational Assistance - The School Project

This is not so much a teen career. It's a new school system. You can compare it to the 7 years of Hogwarts I made as 7 teen careers.
But now the teens don't attend Hogwarts. They attend the Belgian School System.
I explain everything about this School system in this post: 
https://s2idownloads.blogspot.com/2018/01/new-idea-school-project.html

Keep in mind
- Teens need to change to the "Vacation" school type found here: 
http://s2idownloads.blogspot.be/2013/12/new-school-boarding-school-vacation.html
- Though teens don't go to regular school and don't make homework, they need to work very hard on their skills.
- If you use another school type (like my school in shifts), teens can still go to school.
- This is very interesting if you want your sims to go to college, but even when they don't go to college it's good to follow this school system to have some skills already when they start a career.
- There's an upgrade for every career suiting the field of study the sim chose. E.g.: Field of study Economics-Math has the upgrade Economy
- These careers will all have PTO3 so teens have enough time to work on their skills.
- This career asks really a lot of skills from your teen sims. It's best to already have some skill points that are needed for this career.
              
Download (PTO+CC)
1 package file
2 translationfiles (descriptions+chancecards) (for if you want to translate the career)
And the overview in a pdf-file (spoiler)
Download @ SFS


FAQ
The careers don't show up in my game: 
http://bit.ly/MxB7bk
What is PTO? http://bit.ly/1nsQ0tZ
Can you create a career for me?: http://bit.ly/p9ymWC
I want to add (better) chance cards to this career: http://bit.ly/19UHWiQ
Could you create a career for Sims 3? http://bit.ly/11MWFsl
Available Sims 3 careers: http://bit.ly/1lzDQw1

How to translate?
1. Is the career already translated into the language you want, because then your hard work would be in vain? Check it here: 
http://bit.ly/PS89j8
2. It's important that you just translate the English lines. (See the thread to know which descriptions and which levels belong together)
3. You have to translate it twice. Once for male and once for female. Even when it's the same description!
---- Please, don't change the other lines.
4. Don't forget to translate the word "Unemployed" and to give me the translation of the career title as I will need that info when I add your translation to the career.
5. Upload the translated file to a comment in this thread.

New Announcement: We Were On A Break

Needing a break

Some time off


Lately my life has become really busy. Normally I would post every day in July and August as children have those months off from school. But I decided to post every day children don't need to go to school (so weekends and schoolholidays) except when I don't need to work.
So from July 11th till August 2nd I won't post anything on my blog (except July 21th as that is Belgium's national holiday).
This will also count for the holiday around Christmas and New Years. From 2021 onwards I will only post in weekends all year long (otherwise it becomes to complicated).
And if I have more things to post than that, I can still post more, but with only posting in weekends, it will make it a lot easier to combine the blog with my real life. I just don't want to give up either ;)

But at all times I will be online in the Facebook group 
=The Sims 2= as I am an admin there.
I post them all in =The Sims 2= where a lot of people talk about the game, play made up games about The Sims 2, share info and cc, solve problems,...

I am also online on a daily basis for my Facebookpage: www.facebook.com/Sims2Idea
On this page I post things I don't post on my blog (and the other way around). I also post previews sometimes and extra hints and tips for the game.
You can always reach me through Facebook Messenger for any questions about the game.

So even though I will post a lot less on this blog, I am still online and busy with The Sims 2 all the time.

New Idea: TOC - All The Residents' Men - S2E12

This idea is based on my idea to analyse every Friends episode.
In general the idea is to give you one episode per blogpost. In every blogpost I'll shortly describe what happens with the main characters of The Odd Couple in that certain episode. SPOILER
You can then play this in the game as you wish.
I don't know The Odd Couple as much by heart as Friends so I haven't written a main blogpost about it (yet).

All The Residents' Men - S2E12
Felix and Oscar run against each other for President of the building tenants' association, but Oscar might be in over his head.

Oscar
They played football together, but they lost bad. He and Felix start a competition in becoming elected as president of the tenants board. After he won the election he gives away his place as president to Felix because the tenants complain about every little thijg. Oscar's campaign was about leaving the tenants alone, but they don't leave them alone.

Felix
The elderly woman at apartment 9 gives away her position as president of the Building Tenants Association. Felix is very eager to apply. But he has to win the election first. He's running campaign even rhough he's the only candidate. He wants to make a rule as president for not allowing smoking on the balcony. Oscar smokes his cigares on the balcony and they start a discussion which causes Oscar to be wanting to become president too.

New Idea: W817 - E006

In general the idea is to give you one episode per blogpost. In every blogpost I'll shortly describe what happens with the main characters of W817 ((W"eight" = Wait) Dutch: Wait A Second) in that certain episode.
It's a Flemish show that can be best compared with Friends. I call it "The Flemish Friends".

I do this because it's mainly about a group of students in college and so with these episode ideas we have something new to play for our sims in college.

Or you can play this in the game as you wish.
I know W817 maybe even better by heart than Friends (that's saying something).

Also like Friends this series was made at the end of the ninties, begin nillies so this is actually very suitable for The Sims 2 as there were no smartphones or internet like we know now.

There are no seperate seasons and episodes don't have a title. There are 131 episodes and I will number them accordingly.

Meet the characters
Here you can find an overview of all the characters and their personality: 
https://s2idownloads.blogspot.com/2020/05/new-idea-w817-introduction.html
Steve
He's very active and goes jogging with his new boyfriend, Tony. He asks Birgit to join him next Saturday. He believes it's Tony's birthday (the others tell him it is). He's looking for a gift, but it appears it's not his birthday. He just wants to meet eachother's parents.
Bridget
She's completely exhausted from the jogging but agrees to Steve to go to the fitness because the trainer is really cute. She falls in love with the fitness trainer Dick. But he's way to active for her.
Tom
He's enjoying the fact he is now a writer for a known publisher. But his roommates still may not read some of his work. He buys a laptop directly from the USA, but he miscalculates in how much it costs him. It's more expensive than thought and now he has trouble paying the rent. Because no one wants to loan him money for rent he sells his laptop again.
Zoe
She bought blue hairdye but it went all wrong.
Akke
He playing a murdergame in college. Not on a computer but they need to kill peers with toyguns.
Jasmin
She has a new boyfriend, Evert, who cooks lasagna for her when his parents are away. It didn't go well after he asks her to go to his room and initiates more than kissing. She slapped him and leaves. She's afraid now she has lost her boyfriend. She was in doubt what to do with her boyfriend. But then he dumps her because she has to think about it.

The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss - S5E17
Rachel has an interview at Ralph Lauren, where she mistakenly kisses the interviewer (Mr. Zelner). She gets called back for a second interview, where she again mistakes Mr. Zelner's actions and chews him out. Later, realizing her mistake, she meets with him again, straightens things out, and gets the job. Ross spends all his free time 'acting' in front of his window, thinking it entertains his friends. Joey tries to find a woman who keeps waving at him from Ross' building, but somehow keeps ending up at Ross' place instead. Monica obsesses about proving that she and Chandler are still a hot couple, like Phoebe and Gary. Chandler enjoys it for a while, but eventually helps Monica see that their relationship has progressed to a better level.

Rachel

She has a jobinterview at Ralph Lauren. She'll be the coordinator of the women's collection and will work right under the director. The jobinterview went well, but as her future boss reaches for the door she thought he wanted to kiss him and she kisses him. She's ashamed but called back for a second interview in the end she got the job even though the last interview was videotaped.

Monica

She and Phoebe are in kind of a contest about who has the hottest relationship. Phoebe is at the beginning of her relationship with Gary.

Phoebe

She's in the contest with Monica because well she's Monica.

Joey

Ross does some sketches window to window. Joey is watching and sees a hot woman in Ross's building. But he keeps counting wrong. Ross meets the hot girl and he's at her apartment when Joey finally got the apartment right, but Ross opens the door...

Chandler

He's caught in the contest between Monica and Phoebe. Though he likes it.

Ross

He's doing sketches in his apartment. Surfing, getting caught by a shark, watching tv,....
