Mechanic Career

I bring you a Mechanic Career, requested by my Mum and Sweetgirl612 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. It was made with patch 1.34 and works on patches 1.34-1.63 and should work with all lower patches, although let me know if it doesn’t. This career is written in English, Spanish and Swedish (Thanks to argos93 and Nike for the translations!). I’ll include translation instructions at the end.

The career is based at the Science Lab. It has ten levels and focuses on the Logic and Handiness skills.
This career has uniforms! Levels 2 – 10 all have a custom uniform, similar to the Repairman outfit. There aren’t any opportunities at the moment, but I plan to add some when I learn how. There’s one custom tone, Practise Changing Tyres, which builds the Handiness skill.

    this career does not work with The Sims 3 1.67 version. Can you update this so it can work with this version? Thank you.

      Make sure you have the correct version of Twallan’s Careers Mod. The careers will work with any patch level, providing you have the correct version of Twallan’s Careers Mod 🙂
