Get to Work Sharing Thread: What have you discovered so far?
Have you tried the new Careers? Which one sounds the most appealing to you?
I know some are still waiting to get the EP and though I have it I have yet to find a good time to really concentrate and play.
Olie Sirat from Rosebud 500K Solitaire by EuphorialQueen is primed and ready to test the new options.
He gained a lot of skills during the challenge and his pockets are brimming with all those hard earned Simoleons.
His wife Daphnee (Dupree) Sirat and their twin boys are ready to test all the new features.

I put in a night session with Thaddeus (500K Rosebud Solitaire)and while I was playing the EP downloaded, yeay!

Couldn'rt resist to start a new game. Big Grin

This is Jonathan Dimond (30 days of Sim; day 6) He will explore the Doctor career for me. Look how exhausted he came back from his first work day.
I was so excited and forgot to take pictures at the clinic.



He got one of the new haircuts too.

Hi Lionpaws! Wow, Jonathan does look very tired. Isn't this fun?!


Spades has joined the scientist  career...Mwaaaaa Hwaaaa Hwaaa Hwaaa.




I love it so far!  I was torn between Doctor and Scientist but the lure of Aliens and the world won me over. I planned on staying up and play for several hours but I am just too tired. I did change Spades hairstyles and outfits but forgot to take pictures. I can't wait to play more cheers

@Buttonsginger I don't know if that was something to do with the baby or did the machine take my girls heart out! Suspect Surprised scratch Laughing

While my new dude was at work yesterday, a co-worker came up and sat next to him while he was analyzing a sample from a crime scene. That look was a bit scarey. It's almost like he was sizing my dude up! ROFL

Notice the plumbob over my sims head is orange. It's on the verge of turning red because, yeah like in RL, I push my sims to the limit at work just like I do to myself. Laughing

This EP has me sooo excited. I haven't played with any active careers yet, but I have delved into the retail career, and boy is it a challenge! I started a new save with Miss Eliza Perkins. She is ambitious, good, creative and strives to own a successful bakery - Perky Bakes.
What I realized is that it's more strategy than anything. Should you open right away or build skills and seed money first? The higher your skills are (like baking, gardening, or painting), the higher the value of your wares will be. And the better shop you'll be able to build.

However, I'm impatient, so I used a few motherlodes to get into the gameplay. The thing about the new baking skill is that it is wise to own a garden as well. Many of the recipes require fresh plants, herbs, or fish to bake. So that makes owning a bakery twice as difficult. Not only can you not just pull items to sale from the buy catalog, but you have to create your own items AND tend to a large garden.

Eliza's bakery also sales original paintings to help supplement the cost of building it. She has the kitchen and a temporary living space in the basement beneath the shop. Her permanent home is in Oasis Springs. She's rarely there, but when she gets tense, I close the shop for a few days and give her time to refresh.

My current strategy is two days off while at the shop to recover, restock, care for the garden, and paint, and one extended day open for customers to buy everything. Also, creating more original paintings brings in more profit than copying and restocking.

The only real issue that nags me is because we can't lock doors yet, customers (and sometimes the employees!) wander down to my living space to eat or watch my TV. To stop this, I put a wall to block the entrance to the basement once the shop opens and deletes it after it's closed. Another option is deleting the door.

I'm learning as I go, but it is a fun, fun ride!

Also, Magnolia Promenade is very pretty! I know The Sims team will definitely expand this neighborhood soon with other expansions. :-)

The science career is super fun, I think.  My sim went to the world on her own via the device she made at work (I forget it's proper name) and the world was dark, had collectables and one alien walking around. I was a bit disappointed. The above picture is when my sim went to the world as a work task...I was so shocked how it was set up and with so many aliens. It was really fun.

Great pictures and game experiences, Ladies! Cool
I've only tried the doctors' career because I decided it would get too crazy if his wife was a detective like I wanted her to be and would need to follow her to work too. One at a time is all I want to play for now. I'd moved Mitchell and Mike Wells into Olivia Spensers' house and decided to play them, saving Mitchell for the doctors career. Mike had a thing for Rose Flemming and imagine my surprise when they got married. Olivia and Mitchell ended up getting married months later and they all live together in Olivia's house. I follow Mitchell to work and figured out he needs to go to bed early so there is time to have him get focused before work. It seems he needs to chat with the doctor first before transferring a patient. (Or is that referring?) The patient must have a blue heart over their head in order for him to be able to examine them. It took a long time for him to reach level 3 in his career. He has a lot of trouble with analyzing a swab. He may have to buy that bio machine to practice at home as there just isn't enough time most days to practice at work. He has never managed to get beyond the first two bars filling in a days work. It was very frustrating at first because the nurse would have examined all the patients and Mitchell couldn't do his work. More patients came later and he'd grab one of those to complete the chores he'd been assigned. There are some pictures of the group but I need to label them and upload them. Been too tired. I am enjoying this EP and can't wait to try the other professions.

@ButtonsGinger Great capture of Sixam. When Drake went there it was via Dad's upgraded rocket ship. He only met the ons Sim but did collect all the nearby goodies.
@Gramcrackers Sounds like you are having fun. I am still waiting to play an active career. I want the Sirat Twins to be my vict...  Suspect  I mean to explore the new careers. Whistle  One at a time is my strategy.
@TheDallas I like that idea of a save for each career. May have to give that a shot. Wonder if I could keep them straight. 'A Day in the Life at SimCentral Hospital' ..... meanwhile back at M.A.D.D. Science & Research Center .....

Exploring the Scientist Career is a blast.
Guide at Carl's Sims 4 ( http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/ )
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/careers/gettowork/scientist/
To be successful you will need a ready supply of common crystals, metals a few elements and some assorted plants. It will save time if you can have some of these already in your inventory before going to work each day. No worries though because you will have the option to 'Ask co-worker' for crystals and metals. The Elements can be discovered by analyzing crystals and metals on the handy dandy Chemical Analyzer. This object is available at work or can be purchased to use on your home lot. The Gardening Skill will be essential to be able to get all the required plants for Serums.
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/skills/gardening/
Various plants can be converted into Serums using the Chemistry Lab. Basil, Rose, Daisy, Parsley, Carrot and Mushroom plants will be required for the first few Serums. Later Serums will need Spinach, Plantain, Apple, Strawberry and Chrysanthemum.
-
The SimRay is the first invention and a most handy object. once upgraded it can be used to Transform objects. All those Easter eggs worth 10 SImoleons each? Transform them into random items that are more useful ... and more valuable to either keep and use or sell.

One thing I forgot to mention ..... kind of important .... there is a random chance of fire when using Transform. But you do have the option of putting out the fire with your freeze ray.

I hadn't thought about transforming the eggs Head Desk  Great idea!

I had a terrible  time getting the alien crystals and elements. I gathered the crystals but they seemed to be just the ordinary type. I did get one crystal and sent it off to the Geo Council and guess what....it never came back....anywho...I made it to the top of the career and then some extra raises but got tired of using the freeze ray at work changing the employees outfits so I have moved onto the doctor career. the science career was fun and I enjoyed it. I still have all  the doohickies. I would like to be able to make the youth potion serum, if I can figure out how to get the needed alien stuff.
