Lifeguard Career

I bring you a Lifeguard Career, requested by Studio954 from MTS. For this career to show up in game, you’ll need Twallan’s Careers Mod:

Patch 1.29 ~ Phase Nine
Patch 1.31-1.36 ~ Phase Ten
Patch 1.38-1.39 ~ Phase Eleven
Patch 1.42-1.48 ~ Phase Twelve
Patch 1.50 ~ Phase Thirteen
Patch 1.55-1.57 ~ Phase Fourteen
Patch 1.63 ~ Phase Fifteen

Only the Base Game is needed for this career to work but it will work with any combination of Expansion and Stuff packs.
It was made with patch 1.36 and works on patches 1.36-1.63 and should work on all lower patch levels, although if it doesn’t, please let me know.
The career is written in English and currently supports a European Portuguese translation (Thanks to CDDC for the translation!). I’ll include translation instructions at the end.

The career is based at the Day Spa, since it needs to be a rabbithole. Ideally, it would have been the beach or community pool, but I thought the Day Spa was the most sensible choice. It has ten levels and focuses on the Athletic and Logic skills.

We finally have uniforms! They’re Base Game only, since I couldn’t get custom ones to work at the moment.
You can edit career outfits with patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing 🙂
Right now, there are no opportunities. I can’t get them working at the moment, but I won’t stop trying!
There is one custom tone, Scan the Water, which builds the Athletic skill.

I’m not fluent enough in any other languages to translate, so if you’re interested in translating this career into your language, then please download this Language Strings file and open the file up in Notepad.
<STR>Translate This Text</STR>
Do that for the entire file, then email me your translation to: and let me know which language you’re translating to. 🙂
The career works for me but if you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll do my best to sort it as quickly as possible.

  1. Hi Missy, I’m really enjoying using your custom careers, as you know 🙂
    But I’m going to be a party pooper and tell you I’ve been getting lots of script errors from Twallans Careers mod regarding one of your careers – Twallan says its your Lifeguard career. I posted the errors to him and this is what he suggests:

    “Subject: Wikispaces: Monitored Discussion: “Career script errors”
    Date: 09 September 2013 00:51:31

    “[E]Tone: LifeguardTone.LifeguardCareerScanTheWater CareerGuid no match

    The mod is attempting to attach a new tone to the Lifeguard career and failing. Probably interference from the similarly named EA career.

    You may need to remove that particular career, or have the creator rename it. :)”

    I don’t really want to remove this career as I wanted to try it now I’ve installed Island Paradise. Can this be easily fixed? I hope it can. Thank you so much for creating these great careers anyway, I have them all! 🙂

      Righty then! First off, you’re not a party pooper, I’d much rather hear about any issues so I can get them fixed! 😀
      It’s taken all day, but it’s fixed and hopefully, no longer conflicting! 😀 So feel free to redownload! 😀

  2. Aw, Thank you so much, Missy! 🙂 I’ll redownload it now.
    See you back on TSD and Tumblr! (TSD is where I first discovered your stuff!) :))

  3. Maybe players could place a day spa RH on a Pool or Beach lot
