transfer between households
11, 2003 - by Bimbo Nobrain Loveless
you ever want to give some Simoleons to another household or to charge
a neighbour for helping him? Well, now you can! In Simmerville the problem
was solved with the easiest system in the world.
Neighbours do want to help
each other economically, but this far it has been difficult to transfer
money between the households, at least it has here in Simmerville. Until
a few months ago when SimSit created a set of Simoleons to help you when
money should switch owners.
The idea is to use two transfer
items, the green money which goes to the household that should receive
money, and the redish money which goes to the household that are to pay.
Then, after the bank has transferred your Simoleons (which normally will
be done within 24 hours), both households will simply sell the transfer
item they got. Perhaps it sounds complicated, but it is very easy to use
as long as you remember that green is positive and red is negative. And
how difficult is that unless you are a colour blind sim?
such a simple thing can make a little revolution! We have a detailed community
with many sims involved, and it looks like there are endless ways of taking
advantage of the new money transfer system. Further down you can read about
different ways to use the new transfer items.

Well, this is of course
perfect for the need of paying me for organizing a new house or for house
adjustments. The cost will most often be from $500 to $2000, and with the
new system we will just use as many transfer money items as needed until
I've got what I've charged.
This is so great! Some times
one of my children misses the school bus, and he havd to stay alone at
home. Now I can call a neighbour to come to our place, and I can pay the
neighbour $250 for babysitting one day. Well, my children are no longer
babies, but it feels better to know that an adult is at home with them,
checking that they study and eat and not only play computer games.
Salut! I have two old aunts
here in Simmerville, they live together in a very little house and I think
it would be great to help them economically as they have no income. Giving
them §500 would be of great help, I'm sure!
I have a lot of savings
because I have been lucky with my investments. I have always been dreaming
of working with banking, and now might be the right moment as the new money
transfer system will make it possible for me to transfer a loan to customers,
and they can transfer mortage back to me. Customers can also send me their
savings and I can send them back some interests. Well, I must think more
about this because it might be a risky business on my part...
Our household might soon
split, and this transfer system actually makes it easy for us to adjust
the 2 new households' networth. Splitting up would otherwise caused a lot
of financial problems. We might need a garden full of transfer items, but
it will still be an easy overnight operation.
The money transfer system
will of course work wonderfully between neighbourhoods too, so I was so
glad that I was able to send $250 to each of the Food Expo co-hosts, for
them to give out as a local prize when they close the Food Expo or to use
in any other way serving the food subject. I can see this system be used
as prizes for future contests and festivals, too.
As the webmaster of Simmerville
web I have already published many articles written by local sims. I was
never able to pay them anything until we got this money transfer system
a couple months ago. Now I can pay them for each article they write!
