“Fun With Seasons” Sports Career Pack

The long awaited Seasons Expansion has finally arrived and many Simmers are off enjoying the new weather in The Sims 3.
I planned this pack back in August when Seasons was first announced and at last, it’s finished! Introducing the “Fun With Seasons” Sports Pack!
This pack contains 3 full-time careers (Snowboarding, Football and Basketball) and 6 Afterschool Activities for both teens and children (Swimming, Rollerskating, Iceskating, Football, Basketball and Snowboarding)!

Now for the technical details…

All the files are currently in English, Danish, Swedish, European Portuguese, Italian and Brazillian Portuguese (thanks to Misling, trixiehej5, Gaspar418, guir98, ChrísHoffmann and vini for the translations!). I’m more than happy to include translations. If you’re interested in translating, please download the LanguageStrings file and follow the instructions at the bottom of this post 

Afterschool Activities ~ These need Generations to work and will also require Twallan’s Careers Schools mod to show up properly in game. All 6 activities are available for teens and children of both genders.

Football ~ Mondays and Wednesday. Boosts Athletic skill.
Snowboarding ~ Tuesday and Thursday. Boosts the Athletic skill and the Snowboarding skill (If Seasons is installed).
Basketball ~ Monday and Friday. Boosts the Athletic skill.
Iceskating ~ Tuesday and Wednesday. Boosts the hidden Skating skill (If Seasons is installed).
Rollerskating ~ Wednesday and Friday. Boosts the hidden Skating skill (If Seasons is installed)
Swimming ~ Monday and Tuesday. Boosts the Athletic skill.

Afterschool Activities1

————————————————————————————————————

Football Career ~ This only requires the base game to work. 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

This career can be found at the Stadium. It has 10 levels, 1 custom tone (Practise Penalty Shootouts, which builds the Athletic skill) and focuses on the Athletic, Charisma and Logic skills. Right now, there are no Uniforms set, since I’m sure a lot of people would like to use their own colour schemes for their uniforms. If, however, you would prefer a set custom uniform, I would be only too happy to oblige.
The career was made with patch 1.42 and works on patches 1.42-1.63 and should work for all patch levels, although if it doesn’t, please let me know.
Currently, there are no Opportunities as I haven’t had the time to explore them properly yet. But when I do, I am planning to add some.

I have finally been able to get the Game Record working! So now your sims will be able to attend games and prepare for them!

Other sims can also Worship your sim from Level 6 and your sim can hold autograph sessions at the Stadium from Level 8.

FootballOffer

Professional Football Player ~ The life of a professional footballer is one of fame, sport and possible injuries. If you’re a lover of football, then this career will be for you!

1. Football Fan ~ As an avid Footie fan, you pay rapt attention to all things football related. You’ve been playing all through your childhood and teenage years and now you never miss a game and are always checking out the latest league tables on the internet and in the paper. The football world is as familiar to you as the back of your hand.
§16/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday

2. Mascot ~ You’re part of the team! All right, so you’re a part with a weird outfit and you don’t actually PLAY football, but that stills counts, right? You run onto the pitch before the game, dance or fight with the opposition’s mascot and run off again. But at least you’re there!
§33/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday

3. Substitute ~ The coach watched you kicking a ball about one day and realised you have potential. You’ve been promoted to Substitute. Your main job is to keep the bench warm and watch your teammates have all the fun while you sit in the cold. However, if you keep improving your footie skills, you could find yourself on the pitch.
§58/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday

4. Goalkeeper ~ The coach thought it would be good to try you out in goal, since the last goalkeeper broke his leg. So, all you have to do is stop the other team from scoring by any means possible. Sounds simple enough…
§75/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday

5. Star Player ~ You’re a solid member of the team. You’ve got several Man of the Match titles behind you and you’re now the team’s Star Player. You play every single match and your coach prays you don’t injure yourself! Keep fit, keep that footie skill up and you’ll move on to big things.
§125/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday

6. Team Captain ~ The team wanted you to be the next Captain, so here you are! You’re still a top player and are valuable to the team. You can’t help wondering if maybe, there’s more to football than just playing. The coach is thinking of retiring, and you’re eyeing his spot!
§141/hour
Hours: 3pm – 9pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday

7. Coach ~ Hey there, Coach! You’ve been put in charge of the fitness and skills of the team. Since you’re such a great example and a well-known, top footballer, the manager thought you’d be the best man for the job.
§166/hour
Hours: 10am – 4pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

8. Player Manager ~ Ooh, a top spot. No, not THE top spot. But you’re the Player Manager and you manage the team and the coach and make sure they’re not breaking rules or insulting each other. Check in with the coach and the physiotherapists regularly and your team will flourish!
§200/hour
Hours: 10am – 4pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

9. Manager ~ You’re in charge of the sponsorship of the team, approving the recruitments of new members and subs and arrange the training of the members. You sit about in your suit, look important and get paid for it. But who are you to complain? You still play football from time to time, but you’ve accepted that your professional days are over.
§350/hour
Hours: 10am – 2pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

10. Club Owner ~ You’ve bought the club! That wonderful club who nurtured you as a young player and shared every moment of fame and glory with you is now yours. You manage the Youth Team, Reserve Team and the main team and bask in the glow of their successes. Enjoy your fame and glory, because you’ve earned it!
§437/hour
Hours: 11am – 3pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday

SnowboardOffer

Snowboarder ~ Becoming a professional snowboarder is a long journey, but if you’re committed to your sport and are prepared to dedicate your spare time to riding the half-pipe, you’ll be there in no time.

1. Accessory Man/Woman ~ So, snowboarding is your sport. You want to know everything there is to know about it and have every accessory ever invented to prove your dedication.

2. Snowboarding Student ~ Well, practising paid off. Literally. Now, you have the money to invest in snowboarding lessons.

But don’t be disheartened by your failures and injuries; every great snowboarder started out this way.
§30/hour

3. Regional Contestant ~ Your dedicated instructor thinks you’re ready to compete in a few regional competitions, to give you the experience of competing against other talented snowboarders, such as yourself.

Hours: 10am – 3pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday

5. Amateur Sponsored Snowboarder ~ Your name is getting out in the snowboarding circle and you’ve got a sponsor!

That allows a bigger bonus in your pay, since you hardly have to spend out now!
§83/hour
Hours: 7am – 1pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

6. Pro-Am Snowboarder ~ More than an amateur, but not quite a pro. You’re hoping to get into some of the bigger competitions now.

Hours: 7am – 1pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

8. Half-Pipe Contestant ~ Ooh, the half-pipe is your speciality and now, you’re being paid to enter the Half-Pipe Competition and hopefully win a medal!

§208/hour
Hours: 7am – 1pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

9. Snowboard Cross Contestant ~ Another big competition and against some of the best snowboarders in the world, but your determination will prove to be one of your best assets as you take on a Super Pro on the final slope.

Hours: 7am – 1pm
Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

    Hi MissyHissy,
    Any chance of getting the game record feature working again?
    Ghen

  3. Genevieve says:

    Thanks so much for the game record update!

  4. I’m using this plus ur other 6 afterschool activities, but the other 6 don’t show up anymore when I put the sports ones in… I can only have one at a time!?

    • missyhissy says:

      No, you can have all of them in together. Have the children/teens you’re working with already got afterschool clubs? Because they will only show clubs with days that don’t clash. Try looking in a fresh save and they should all show 🙂
