Creating A Sims 3 Career: The Mega Tutorial
Hello, and welcome to the Job Centre. You're interested in creating a career for the Sims 3? That's excellent! Pull up a chair and make yourself some coffee.
Many people, when they decide to start a project like this, will have a very ambitious idea in mind. Often the reason for this is because nobody else has done what they're looking for. Maybe it's a little complex, or maybe there are people around who can do it but are busy, or not taking requests. So learning how to do it yourself is often the best avenue of approach. However, most tutorials don't cater for the ambitious beginner and it can be easy to feel discouraged if you have to start with a smaller project, far from what you originally wanted to do.
This tutorial is designed for the ambitious beginner, the veteran looking to enhance their existing career or simply for someone wanting to develop their career creating skills. In a nutshell, it's for everybody, however simple or complex you want the career to be. This is the Mega Tutorial. So make sure you top up that coffee!
In this tutorial, we're going to create the Sims 3 Career Creator career, so you can see how to go about doing all these things. This will help you to grasp the basic process as you go along and show you exactly how different features work.
In this tutorial, I cover everything from my Basic Career Creating tutorial as well as most of the smaller tutorials I've written over the past four years. This will, quite literally, be a cumulative collection of all the knowledge and skills I've developed over the course of more than seven years of creating Sims 3 careers.
I'll be splitting this into several posts so you can take a break and come back to the tutorial whenever you like. Don't feel you have to complete it in one day - a career like this sometimes takes me weeks so never give up! Every bug can be fixed or worked around!
Still interested? Then settle down with a notepad and pencil (or a Word document), flex your fingers and get ready to start planning!
