Science Career Path

This one starts of slow, but as you progress it becomes much easier. The hard part is getting handiness up while juggling gardening. Not a task to be taken lightly. Handiness is the one skill where I actually recommend reading the skill books, simply because upgrading takes so long at the lower levels. Once you get to a higher point, things upgrade faster and you can really get into upgrading things around the house, there are many, but I tend not to upgrade unless it proves to be very beneficial (i.e. improve cooking on stove), since it almost always earns you nothing in return.

  • For all careers MOOD is always factored into performance!
  • Items in bold have changed from previous week (pay increases by default so it is not bolded as to highlight major changes only)

.

  1. There is a chance you will get to take home a leftover item on any given workday
  2. There is a chance your sim will be singed, giving a negative moodlet
  3. If an opportunity arises to help co-worker results may give positive or negative moodlets
