Hey,

I am bored of my rich sims. In this case, i dicided to change the payments of all maxis carriers... in short, i cut the salary in halves.
Here a little example of the culinary Career for adults:

Normal by Maxis:
1. 126 §
2. 168 §
3. 183 §
4. 242 §
4. 308 §
6. 469 §
7. 812 §
8. 1208 §
9. 1330 §
10. 2170 §

With my carrers:
1. 60 §
2. 80 §
3. 90 §
4. 120 §
4. 150 §
6. 230 §
7. 405 §
8. 600 §
9. 665 §
10. 1085 §

This files will REPLACE the original. It will change all current Job payments for adult and teen (exept the benefit of already retired sims). There should be no conflict with text-corretion hacks for these career tracks.

Download the Files for all EP you use. You will always need to download the Original file if you don't use the "ALL EP" bundle.
Example: You use Original, EP3 and EP4. Then you need to download the Original-file and the EP4 file. The seperate files only change the job payments the EP includes.

Files:
Original - Just base game
EP1 - University
EP4 - Pets
EP5 - Seasons
EP7 - Free Time
ALL - all EPs + base

I hope u enjoy

I corrected the Pets Careeres. The Cat Careers Replacements were missing! So please Re-Download the "EP4" file and overwrite the old one. The new file is already includet in die "All-EP" Bundle, but u dont need to download the whole Bundle second time.

And if u are a realy hard crispy check out simmodder hacks for higher bills and other nice hacks.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you! It's so annoying that the second generation of my legacy can completely demolish their entire house and rebuild it exactly as it was, twice, and still have money left.

Ohh nice that'll ad more challenge to the game and give a good reason to get to the top of the career (I usually stopped when they had close to 1000$ per day).

Much better!
My Sims mostly have the wish to reach the top of such and such career and they make so much money if they do! It makes things way too easy

Whenever I'm alone with you, you make me feel like I am whole again.

98% of teenagers do or has tried smoking pot. If you're one of the 2% who hasn't copy & paste this in your siggy.

Pass the ribbon around if you know someone that survived, died, or is living with cancer.

With your mod some sime will not afford apartment living as they have to earn about 2000-2500 $ per week.

Currently playing Sims 4 full collection. (and fixing my mods folder)

I'm not sure this is working. I have all the expansion packs and therefore the all EPs package. My sim is top of the law career and the career info correctly shows the half salary but she came back with full salary (as in the amount she used to get rather than the amount she should be getting with this hack).

My mind never wanders, it packs it's backpack, puts on it's boots and goes on a mountain hike.

They will. maybe they dont living alone? And remember, that they workt a few days in week and the apartment bill is just monday.
It is hard, u r right. But thats the fun for me They have to work, no other chance.

Maybe ur sims has the Fortune aspiration? then he will earn 50% more (its not written down in the job window, u can just see it when they come home). Else, is it ur only sim with this problem?

This won't work for me. I downloaded the EP1 file.
I have the following expansions: University, Nightlife, Bon Voyage.
Am I doing something wrong?
