Natural Scientist Career (from TS2:U) Mod
Natural Scientist Career (from TS2:U) Mod
There’s something special about The Sims 2 careers. Having them in my game now brings back so many memories. The careers in The Sims 2: University were something else and I realized that only Artist and Show Business (sort of) exist in The Sims 4. So, I present to you, the Natural Scientist career!
I thought it was perfect to use the secret lab in StrangerVille as the career’s workplace. This means nothing for gameplay (it’s just decorative text), so the career is base game compatible and CC free!
The daily pay, work hours and workdays are all the same as in TS2:U. So yes, an Ecological Guru only works on Wednesdays for a 21-hour shift.
Base game compatible
Works with latest April patch (220.127.116.110).
Text strings for objectives might not appear properly as the latest patch broke text strings for some mods. The gurus have promised a fix to be released soon. Hovering over the empty fields (where the text should be) will display which skill needs to be improved, however.
§46/hour, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, M T W T _ S _
Objectives: Logic 2
Description: Yes, you tend rats for a living. It’s not the greatest job, but at least it gets you started with a career in the biological sciences. The bites don’t go too deep and no redness or irritation has started, so chances are you might live to see a promotion if you work on your skills.

Objectives: Logic 4, Fishing 3, Fitness 2
Description: Let’s face it: Clams are slippery little bivalves. Sometimes keeping their natural habitats in check requires a little wrangling, and that’s where you come in. Long regarded as a jumping ground for the more prestigious careers in Natural Science, Clam Wrangling requires a strong body and quick reflexes. Work those skills and prestige may not be far off.

Objectives: Logic 5, Handiness 2

7. Animal Linguist
§192/hour, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, M T W T F _ _
Objectives: Logic 8, Charisma 3

8. Unnatural Crossbreeder
§222/hour, _ T W T _ S S
Objectives: Logic 9, Handiness 4

§326/hour, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm, _ T W T F _ _
Objectives: Logic 10, Handiness 5
Description: I mean, come on—everybody knows how to make dinosaurs. Find a DNA sample, splice and create a cloning vector, integrate the DNA into bacterial cells to accelerate growth . . . You know, easy stuff. But the real fact of the matter is that nobody has had the guts or a large enough financial endowment before. You’ve got both.
10. Ecological Guru

Description: Your breath is the wind, your body the earth. Your voice is the call of the wild. You are . . . the Ecological Guru. You tell people to change their environmental practices—and they listen. March yourself out on the world and make a difference—you’re a veritable force of nature.
The career is currently available in English and Swedish.
