I'm...pretty sure I've bought souvenirs in non-vacation hoods. It's possible that I've got a mod, or that you've got a mod conflict.

It looks like the specific bug is that it deducts 985,000 simoleons instead of 985 simoleons. I'll have to look into whether or not fixing this would break something else, though. It's because of a hack they used to make it possible to get 75,000 from a chance card when the game only knows about numbers up to 32,767, or at least that's my understanding from looking at it once.

I think you must have a mod, or maybe they work in a downtown but not a home neighborhood, or something like that... This card appears when I direct a Sim to interact with the display though, which seems like the type of thing that would only show up if this were intentional behavior.

They gotta make you go there for something don't they? Your sim must spend at least 500 simloeons to travel to a place just to get the keepsake. They don't want any fakers in this hood!

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

Ok, based on the way other EA chance cards work, there is actually an easy fix that doesn't break anything. Now you will only lose 1,000 simoleons, which is good enough for government work. This is untested for the moment, I'll probably test it tomorrow or something and upload it for real, but I'm pretty sure this should work. http://www.simfileshare.net/download/2611668/

Whoa, today I discovered that souvenirs actually have some benefits when placed on a specific type of shelving.

According to Sims Wiki, it's the ShowMeOff Rack of Glory Souvenir (the shelf that comes with BV).

I read that paragraph in the Wiki, and then read on-the pirate ship has a use, after all:

Quote:
In addition to buyable souvenirs, Sims may collect pirate collectibles by plundering the captain's cabin in a pirate ship. Sims might find the captain's log, a gold doubloon, a treasure map, or nothing, if unsuccessful. Their values are worth §675, §750, and §2,500 respectively. Sims might also encounter Pirate Captain Edward Dregg while plundering. Sims cannot plunder any more loot while the pirate captain is out on deck.

No way! I wish I knew that before I made 500 perfect robots. They visited far east a lot to learn to teleport but never bought any souvenirs. Does it help with learning badges as well?

Today I discovered that when you're on a date with a townie, you can lock one of their wants just like if they were playable! All these years and I never even thought to try.

Once, I made 90% of the sims in the neighbourhood have the locked want 'woohoo with Sim Sample' using this feature.

The rack just has to be in same room? Or Sim has to look at it...k?

It seems it has to be, yes.

"Being close to the rack seems to make me feel more skillful/friendly/romantic" is the notification you'll receive when viewing the rack with Far East/mountain/tropical souvenirs. I haven't noticed a very large boost in skilling. My Sim was studying cooking from a chair two tiles away from the rack, in the same room. I was feeling lazy so I didn't test further with different Sims to study the change in their relationship when using the mountain/tropical souvenirs.

"I hear a strange buzzing sound", on the other hand, is the notification you receive when the Sim looks at the five voodoo dolls, and they indeed get chased by bees, much like the Mellifera Attackum witch spell.
