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.

This is the best mod I used in a long time. Now events matter, what car they drive, whether they get a promotion, what it costs to fix broken things or buy new. Every decision effects the bottom line. It adds so much realism. They really were making too much money.

So my sims can keep the wealth and stuff they have now, and we'll see if they can afford their lives on half salary. Already have some losing money, even with everyone working, so it'll get interesting as wealthy sims lose ground and poorer sims have to struggle. Like in life.

Hey, will it affect author sims? I only have the base game and my Sim in unemployed but she writes a fair amount of books. Right now she's getting 5k a week from books AND her husband wants to be a world renowned surgeon.

Ich bin bereit, meinem Schöpfer gegenüberzutreten.
Ob mein Schöpfer ebenso bereit ist,
diese Begegnung über sich ergehen zu lassen,
ist eine andere Sache.

I have the ultimate collection and have put the files under the 'Downloads' folder, as well I have enabled the custom content in game, but the original game and the expansions carrees remain with the same default salary. Do you guys know what I can be doing wrong?

Hi there! Mine wasn't working too but I could solve it by making it load last, just add a z at the begining of the file or folders name.
