Seasons – All records rely on a date format that incorporate seasons.
Microsoft Excel (created with 2013)- Must be macro enabled (instructions in the record)

So, what is ‘The Sims Economy’?
A foundation for you to run an economical system within your Sim’s gameplay!

Ok, tell me more….
The Sims Economy is a series of database-styled Excel records that supports the tracking of inflated and excess bills, government fees, banking, taxes, a welfare system, legislation and laws as well as the convenience of keeping track of Sim and Household details, whilst keeping a tab on the game progression.

The Personal Record, features sections on: Taxes, Debt and Bankruptcy, University Fees, Education, Employment and Income, Personal Bills, Insurance, Personal Banking, Sim Game-play information.

Monique's banking mod - this mod I use with the personal banking. I also have the updated version of the computers by Chaavick found here.
Monique's bill payer mod - This again is optional and is used with the banking to set -up payments for the mortgage function.

The zip file includes V2712of the personal record along with a guide. There is also a set-up guide in the record and guidance notes throughout.

You are free to adjust this document for personal use. However, please do not upload or distribute on any public site including Mod The Sims. Instead, please link back to page.


I would like to thank all the simmers that responded to my threads, you really helped me in finishing this off. I would also like to thank KatyP for her bank mod and Sims 2 Graveyard for re-uploading it, Monique for her fabulous finance mods and also ModTheSims for its extensive discussions forum. I found out so much on there. Also, big thanks to manu_prieto_cruz1995 for letting me use his money design as part of my logo.

If you come across any errors or would like help on anything please feel free to message me. For now, happy Simming!

This download has custom installation instructions!

In addition to the normal installation instructions, this download also has a custom instruction, as follows:

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. I HAVE ALL Ultimate Collection plus Chris hatch’s unofficial EP but I have not tested this project on any specific EP.

To use this tool you must have full access to MICROSOFT OFFICE (2013 was used to create this) making sure that the software supports or is Macro enabled. I am looking at creating a version that can be used on a free software but for now I am sticking with Microsoft. You will also need to have the following expansion packs: SEASONS and it isn’t definite but APARTMENT LIFE, especially if you are using this for its gameplay aspect.

Make sure that macros are enabled in the document by going to File-Options-Trust Centre-Trust Centre settings-Macro Settings and selecting enable macros. You may not have to do this as it should prompt you to enable the macros on opening the record. The records can be placed anywhere in your computer as long as you have administrative access to the area so that when you link cells in the records they will freely do so without any errors.

I have used several financial objects in order for me to use this gameplay which I do recommend you to use. There is an updated version of Monique’s computer Chaavik,78086.0.html for banking and her bill paying mod for making payments and KatyP’s functional bank off of PCsims (now graveyard) for her bank book and credit card. If you have other financial objects that you can use in replace of these then feel free, these are just what I based my personalized gameplay on.
To get started with the Economy Game play a few things will need to be set up in your game if they are not already. There needs to be a government Sim that receives payments from the Sims i.e. tax etc., a finance manager who deals with all the banking related payments and an insurance Sim that receives all protection payment (if you have a set up more convenient for you please disregard what I have just said). This can also be done by renaming a few Sims or keeping track of which Sims have each role.
