[TUTORIAL] Professions Training/Specialization Training

Post by mockingbird288z » 14 Jun 2016, 00:23

This is the tutorial quest that will start after you build either movie studio or the police station. If you already have the movie studio built and haven't built the police station the tutorial will start once you update to the Movie Star update.

There is no time limit or a time limited prize. It is just to help us understand the new professions.

The tutorial for Specialization Training starts in the second post.

List of Resource Requirements:
Police Station
Movie Studio
Hospital
_________

Visit a Profession Workplace

The tasks for the second tutorial start after the next two pics.

VIP members can spend 20LP to send their sim to work for a second shift. (VIP 1 and above)

Sims can only work 1 shift a day (2 shifts a day with VIP and 20LP).

In one shift sims cans help up to 25 other sims. If you help 25 sims the shift ends early.

Professions: Specialization Training
After you get a sim to level 6 a new short tutorial will start to help walk you through the specializations.

Assign a specialty to a level 6 sim. (There can only be one sim in each specialization.)

Select either Special Agent or Metro Police
Complete a Profession Badge

This badge is earned by helping 3 sims

Badge % shows how much you've done

Badges are earned at the end of a shift
Build a workstation at the Police Station (You won't get this goal if you built a workstation while working on the previous goal. If you start to build a workstation while working on the previous goal this one won't complete until you build another workstation.)

_____________________

The workstations can be upgraded to level 20.

Storage can be increased to 5000 for the police station and 2600 for the movie studio.

Anyone past level 1? I feel like these level ups could take some time.

I'm already bored with doing the short tasks over and over. I don't enjoy the need to be so interactive with my sims; I prefer to park them at longer tasks.

Agree, it certainly messes up the way I play the game.

How do you unlock the handcuffs? My resources are currently limited to Walkie-Talkie, Donuts & flashlights. Same here, getting tired of doing the short tasks repeatedly. I prefer to my sims to do longer tasks or hobbies so I dont have to spend too much time on the game.

Once you reach level 6 you'll choose either Metro Police or Special Agent. Additional levels within the specialty can unlock more rooms. If you choose Metro Police at level 6 then you can build the Squad Car that will in turn unlock the handcuffs for collecting. They'll be available within different rooms as well but that will be the first place you'll find them.

Special Agent - Level 6 - Unlock Interview Room - Unlocks Fingerprints
Special Agent - Level 7 - Unlock Sketch Room
Special Agent - Level 8 - Unlock Forensics Lab - Unlocks Recorder
Special Agent - Level 9 - Unlock Division 51

Metro Police - Level 6 - Unlock Squad Car - Unlocks Handcuffs
Metro Police - Level 7 - Unlock Jail Cells
Metro Police - Level 8 - Unlock K-9 Unit - Unlocks Police Tape
Metro Police - Level 9 - Unlock Chief' Office

*Edited to add: Once K-9 Unit & Forensics Lab are built you'll also unlock the golden shield resource.

During the tutorial I was unable to have 2 police officers working at once. Will it work if you've finished the tutorial? I don't want more than 2 officers, and hopefully one of you has already tried this :)

After the tutorial you can have two officers working at the same time. Not more if you want to follow them to work.

Hey, I have a little problem with the Police Department Tutorial. One of my sims started working at the Police Department, but I can't send him to work. The work icon is orange, and when I touch it, they advise me to buy VIP points. Can anyone help me, or am I the only one with this problem?
