I'm curious how you all handle bills? If I use a mod like the visitor controller and ban the mailperson, will the bills stop? OR, is there a mod that makes bills $0 but still brings things like gifts and postcards?

I usually just ban the mail person from all lots, but you do miss out on getting postcards that way. I don't know of any mod like the one you described but I sure would love one!

Hi RayeNation, and welcome! The bills issue is a challenging one to handle in any historically slanted sims game for sure. I've experimented with playing using Cyjon's BiggerBills mod, which allows you to have bills come more often and make them larger, which seems counter-intuitive, but could be considered as the taxation system. To use this, you would have to rethink how you use the Steward in the challenge and how he collects, perhaps using Mog's computer, but with a little creativity it can be done. Another mod you could try is Amura's Custom Bills (here on MTS). Sorry for the late reply, but hope this helps!
Cheers, Vllygrl

I have the mailman stop by every Tuesday and Thursday, but with default replacement clothing, available here and at other places. In fact, I've defaulted nearly every single piece of clothing or item used in the game and hiders do the rest to take care of game content.

@ Mortia:

Hi Mortia! I ran across a post of yours on The Sims 2 forums, from March 2018 - https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/di...ff-your-hood/p2.

I wanted to tell you how beautiful I think your first MCC hood is and how wonderfully you organized it! I am blown away with what you have done here and where you have taken your MCC, not to mention terribly flattered and impressed. I would love to know what terrain is the one you used there? So rare to see a terrain with a low-banked river running through it like that one. Thank you for being so supportive and positive about the MCC! I am humbled and honoured in the face of your creativity.

Cheers, Vllygrl

Hello everyone! I love reading about all of your stories! I just had a question to see how you all handle this. The second son of one of my peasant families just aged up and needs to move out. He definitely cannot afford to buy a peasant hovel in order to move out, but I would like him out of the house to get on his own two feet. Any ideas?

Maybe have him move out but put him on an empty lot. Let him do some lawn living for a while? I personally have some good medieval tents, and grills that I would probably use. As long as you move him out in spring or fall (if you have seasons), the temperature should be mild enough to survive until you can get a hut built. Then I'd just build up the house a little at a time until he had a proper hovel.

That could be fun thank you! Especially since I just unlocked the charity hospice so he could take full advantage of that while he gets his hovel figured out. I randomly rolled for him to be the local pumpkin farmer and carver so he's going to be struggling regardless I think. It will be Spring when he moves out so he should be able to survive in a medieval tent for a bit.

@Vllygrl, I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to get to this question. Thank you for the kind words on my first 'hood! I absolutely have loved this challenge and, after 3+ years, FINALLY finished it this year! I changed the goal numbers quite a bit to add to the challenge, which is why it took so long

The terrain I used is gorgeous, isn't it? It's Greylings by Nimitwinklesims. I absolutely fell in love with that perfect river flowing through the center. I did change the terrain to level out the areas I wanted to build on and added many more roads. I haven't been able to get confirmation from Nimi on whether or not I can share my version with the public, but I will let you know if I can.

Thanks again!

@Mortia, hi and great to hear from you! You're welcome, and thank you! You have stuck with the MCC for a long time, interesting to hear that you changed the goal numbers to add to the challenge and I'm so excited to hear that you finished it! Will you be continuing to play your families in your charter city - you must be very attached to them by now! Or will you move into the Warwickshire Challenge?
Thanks for letting us know the name of the terrain you used is Greylings, Nimi created a very beautiful river and setting for a sims hood and it is a truly lovely terrain. I suspected it was that one but was confused by the additional roads. I didn't realize that you had changed the terrain, but adding the extra roads and leveling the building areas definitely made it substantially more playable for the long term. If you get confirmation from Nimi that you can share, please do let me know!
Happy Easter,
Cheers, Vllygrl
