Occult school idea

Let's make the rabbit hole version first and then worry about the Open version. BTW can anyone tell me how to make that. Is there a guide someone can link me to?

Have you looked at the Careers mod Schools add-on module that allows for the existing specialty schools? It's really all (I think all, or the relevant parts mostly anyway) tuning. Seems to me that one should be able to duplicate all of the blocks of code in the reachable XML files for one of the existing specialty schools and then change the attributes to allow for a new one. I would likely get hung up first on the official names of some of the lot types that would have to be specified, though you might be already ahead of me there.

Hopefully someone will correct me on the above if I've over-simplified things or if some deeper hook is required to get the game and/or MC and SP to recognize a new lot type as hosting a school. But seems to me this shouldn't really be as difficult as creating a mod or even a custom career.

Hey everyone!
OMG this is my first post on the new site :D
Anyway so you know how the Nraas careers has some schools like music school in different rabbit holes. I was thining what if the Occults also have schools like this in rabbitholes. Like Witches in the vault of antiquity, fairies in the fae ray arboreum and werewolves in umm somewhere... 
What do you guys think about this idea?
I think this is a great idea.  You could put witches in the gypsy wagon and give the vault of antiquity to werewolves.  I can't really think of a good place for them otherwise.  Maybe the mausoleum?  No, that makes less sense.

It's too bad about Zerbu's mod.  Making it non-rabbithole would be fun.  

Another idea would be to simply create another school work tone where each one can work on their occult skills.  That might actually be easier to implement.

I have not had time to work on this. Things have been pretty busy with my other projects. But good news is that someone else made a magic school mod! https://modthesims.info/download.php?t=623617 Check it out!

When I read this post, I thought immediately, Harry Potter for school like for witches and such?

For me, I like your idea of schools in rabbitholes for occult, especially for witches, then I can build my own magical school using Zerbu's Ultimate Career to make it open.

Wait, can we do that with Zerbu's Ultimate Career mods?
I thought of Harry Potter, too. I was thinking about this a couple of days ago and wondering if a Boarding School option for occult sims would be possible. Rabbithole schools would be ok, too. Or even add tones to the existing schools that would allow them to Work on Spell Casting, Work on Fairy Magic, Work on Lycanthropy, etc.
