Unlocking career outfits in CAS

This is just a quick tutorial on how to unlock career outfits in CAS because I keep receiving messages about certain outfit pieces on my townies. There might be some mods out there that do the same, but this is my personal method and it only takes like 5 minutes to do once, and you’re set forever.

Start a new game and make a household of 2 sims. Their looks/traits/clothes don’t matter. The reason you need two is because each job has two branches, but you can only be in one branch per sim. My household looks like this, for example:

Dump them onto some lot and enable testingcheats on. Now get any job and use cheats to promote them to level 10. Do this for every job/career, for both sims (choosing different branches). Below are the cheats for promotion:

  • careers.promote astronaut          for Astronaut
  • careers.promote athletic          for Athlete
  • careers.promote business          for Business
  • careers.promote criminal          for Criminal
  • careers.promote culinary          for Culinary
  • careers.promote detective          for Detective  (Get to Work)
  • careers.promote doctor          for Doctor (Get to Work)
  • careers.promote entertainer          for Entertainer
  • careers.promote painter          for Painter
  • careers.promote scientist          for Scientist (Get to Work)
  • careers.promote secretagent          for Secret Agent
  • careers.promote techguru          for Tech Guru
  • careers.promote writer          for Writer

Then use the cheat bucks.unlock_perk RetailOutfit true to unlock the retail top if you have Get To Work.

Once you’re done, save the household to your library (you don’t need to save this game). Next time you want to create a sim (or perhaps edit an old one) in CAS, add this household in with your other sim/household, that should show career clothes in the menu for all of the sims in the currently opened household. You can then delete the career outfit unlockers straight away, even if you haven’t yet redressed your main sim as the outfits should stay unlocked (at the very least until you exit CAS).

so my hiatus is finally over && i’m back && ready to do things but please note that these next couple of days i’ve got a poop load of makeup work to do bc ( && i quote ) ‘ it will raise your grade average if you do it, but you don’t have to unless you have the time ’ which basically means ‘ do it ’  bc hey somehow the registrar put me in all ap classes when i moved here sOO I’M GONNA DIE SOMEONE PRAY FOR ME

So I was builidng in The Sims and I came across a good idea that I wanted to share with you all. I’m not sure if it’s been done before, I haven’t seen any posts on it, so here I go!

Are you ever building and you reach an area like this, and think, well what am I going to put there? I asked this very same question and thought how nice  it would be for there to be a little bench with cushions to put there. And then I thought, what if I make it myself? 

For this, you’ll need to use the cheat “bb.moveobjects” two cabinets of your choosing, and the cushions from Spa Day.

With moveobjects on, I was able to place the smallest cabinet option directly on the ground. Then, I grab a cushion, press the 9 key once, lifting it slightly, and place the cushion through the cabinet, like so. 

And voila! You now have a cushioned bench with the illusion of storage, perfect for under the window usage. :)

Oh, and it’s totally usable. Woo!
