Added all currently available careers as a 50% lower payout, including odd jobs, assignments from home, teen careers, parttime jobs and active careers. Enjoy~!

Hi and welcome to my very first download! For me, I like my gameplay to be a challenge; I have looked far and wide to find a mod to alter career payouts, but sadly was unable to find one that works today. So I decided to make one for myself, and share it with the rest of the gaming community.

--> What does this mod do?
This mod simply lowers the career salaries by 50% (including the money bonuses when getting a promotion). There are separate files for all expansions (so if you don't have any of the expansions, you can still use the base game ones).

--> Extra Download Information:
There are multiple .rar files to be found in the downloadlist. Please only download and use the ones you have the expansions for (the base and teen careers everyone can use, the rest is expansionbased)
Also, the Get Famous file is untested - please let me know if it works properly!

Please comment and favorite this mod if you like my work! I would love to hear from you and will work on fixing bugs if you run into any.

Additional Credits:
Lots of love to 'Sims 4 Studios' for making me able to do this!

Altered Resourses:

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

Sims 4
Built with Game Version: 1.41.42.10

This is a multi-part download:


Please only download the files of which you own the expansion. The Base careers are available for everyone.

Can you please make a merged file? It's a lot of files, and I have everything so it be a lot easier if all of them were merged.

Great mod. But is there a 60 or 70% one? I find 13 an hour for some jobs is still too high for the first level of a job! (wish I got paid that in real life! I only got 7 hour when I started work and now get 9 an hour which is higher then minimum wage and the "average/standard" wage)

Downside I use a mod to allow adults to take part time jobs available to teens (retail babysitter etc etc) . And sadly the prices/mod are still too high on part time jobs. Like the babysitter one etc for example when real life the max you get is 9-10 an hour so not sure what to do to fix that to be same "basic" real life wage. But this starts at 16 hour! (if only that was real!) same with part time retail it starts double what real life is!

But if there'd a 60% or even 70% off mod that would be ideal.. (or better yet a cheat mod so I can "edit" the salaries myself if that's even possible)

I find sims 4 boring after while as its too easy to get rich

hopefully this gets updated as the civic job for the eco lifestyle is still over 31 an hour for the basic level 1 pay!

Will this be updated soon? Also do you have any plans to make a "realistic pay" mod? Not necessarily just 50% or 25% lower but change the pay rates depending on the job itself? Its very unrealistic that the law career is $15 an hour but the babysitter makes $33! I guess what I'm trying to say is not all careers need pay decreases and some need more than others. If this is already a mod can someone let me know where to find it? Thanks!

If anyone is interested, I've made mods that reduce the salary of the Eco Lifestyle and Snowy Escape Jobs. They can be used in conjunction with these mods so that all jobs in the game have 50% reduced pay. https://pleasantsims.com/sims-4-reduced-salary-mod/
