This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
New Patch Compatibility
Patch status for this and all of my mods can be found on my Mod Status page. It receives live updates as I'm checking and it's always complete within a couple of hours of patch releases.

What's New in 2.0?
Teens can now take out a loan (previously only available for Young Adult+).

Late Fees
Once you receive the Loan Payment Overdue buff, a 5% late fee (5% of your payment) will be deducted shortly after. After that, they will be deducted about every 24 hours until your sim makes a payment. If your sim is at work, the late fees will be deducted shortly after they get home. If you don’t have enough Simoleons for the late fee, it will deduct when you do.



Fixes
  • Fixed the rare occasion of being able to take out two loans because the computer broke during the first interaction. Thanks to Ande1707 for finding this issue during testing.
  • You can no longer take out a loan if you still have a loan packet that’s been paid off in your inventory. You must destroy it before taking a new loan out. Thanks to nyqueent for finding this issue during testing.


Mod Compatibility & Requirements
This mod was made with game version 1.48.94. No additional packs required.
For patch compatibility, please check my Mod Status page.


Mod Description
Your sims (Teen and up) can now apply for loans from SimCity Bank. When your sim needs a loan have them click on the computer and select SimCity Loans. From there you will select which loan amount you want.

Loan Amounts include:
  • §1,000
  • §5,000
  • §10,000
  • §25,000
  • §50,000
  • §100,000
  • §250,000
  • §500,000
Once you select the loan amount, your sim will receive a Loan Packet in their inventory (which is not delete-able). Your sim will then be responsible for repaying it! When repaying the loan, you have two options:
  • Repay in full with no interest.
  • Make 12, 24, or 36 payments which includes a 5% interest rate.



If your sim doesn’t make a payment (or pay in full) within 48 hours, he/she will receive a Loan Payment Due (fine mood) buff. If your sim ignores this buff for 24 hours, this buff will turn into a Loan Payment Overdue! (stressful mood) buff. The only way to remove this is to make a payment (or pay in full).



If your Debtor sim dies, the loan packet will be sent to the household inventory (still not delete-able). After you place it on your lot, another household sim can use the Take Over Loan interaction. This will add the loan packet to that sim’s inventory and he/she will be responsible. Don’t worry, any payments that the deceased sim made won’t be lost!

If your Debtor sim dies and gets added back to the household either as a ghost or resurrected, they won’t have the loan packet anymore (obviously since it went to the household inventory). However, they can’t take out a loan. They’ll have to use the computer and click on SimCity Loans > Request Loan Forgiveness, then after 3 days they can apply for a loan again if needed.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
  • Sims can only have one active loan at a time. However, once your sim pays off the loan, you can click on the loan packet and select Destroy. Your sim can then take out another loan if desired.
  • The loan packet is not drag-able! This was done on purpose to keep it in your sims inventory for needed buffs and interaction availability. It’s also not delete-able, for obvious reasons….no skipping out on your debt!
  • If you move your household while the loan packet is on the lot (after placing it from the household inventory), it can be found in the household inventory once again. No running away from it until it’s paid!
    If you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to join me at my discord. You’ll get a much faster response from me there.

**NOTE - If you use Basemental Drugs and your Sim gets arrested, they will lose their loan packet as well. If this happens, you'll have to use the Request Loan Forgiveness option on the computer.

PLANS FOR FUTURE UPDATES
  • Add the SimCity Loans to phones
  • More to come


Mod Conflicts
No known conflicts. It should work well with all mods (including any other loan type mods) because it has its own resources.

I will try some other things to see if something else is messing with it. I will try your troubleshooting link as well. I just found it interesting that it worked until the update. Your mod was one of several I was looking for to get an updated version of on this site. Do you publish more current versions of your mods on other mod sites as well? *edit I answered my own question after seeing the signature in your post.


All of my mods on MTS are the same versions as the ones on my site. If they need an update, I update them in both places

In case anyone else is having issues, we concluded on my discord that 92explor was using a CC computer. Please remember that SimCity Loans (as well as other mods that add custom interactions to computers) aren't enabled for CC computers because of their new object ID tunings.

I had an interesting issue come up yesterday. I had taken a 100,000 loan and was paying it back with the weekly payments, slowly reducing the loan. I eventually was able to pay it all off and deleted the load document from my inventory. Right after this I had to go back to a save from right before I paid it off. The load document was back in my inventory but now it was for the entire 100,000 total instead of the amount I had paid it down to. At this point I gave my Sim enough money to pay it off completely. It's a small issue that probably required several different aspects to be aligned for it to happen and it was easy to resolve. If nothing else this is just an FYI to anyone who might run into the same issue. Still a great mod!

Thank you for the report. That is indeed a weird issue though, it sounds like a lot of factors contributed to it though and would likely be impossible for me to reproduce. However, I am currently reworking the mod and the new version won't even have the packets. So it shouldn't do that with the current version I'm working on.
