We introduce the WTG certificate
Pollution is a big problem,
and going on a far away vacation includes flights and more pollution. WTG
Travels introduces the new WTG Certificate to ease the situation!
Sim booking a flight must buy a WTG certificate. This is an additional
flight tax of §200 per Sim, and 50% of the cost is forwarded to SNUFF
The following routine is
The certificate is sold as
framed wall hanging, at WTG Travels agencies and other business locations.
In Simmerville the certificates are sold at the local bus station. Each
item must cost §200.
A Sim buys the certificate.
When a family is going, they must buy one certificate for each Sim. When
friends are invited it is easier if the Sim ordering the vacation buys
certificates for the entire group, but it can be done individually and
some might already have a spare certificate at home or in their inventory.
After buying the certificate(s)
they will rest in the Sim's inventory. To make sure the cost is never refunded
(by sale), the Sim must now contact the WTG Travels manager (or local representative)
to hand the certificates over as a gift (Bon Voyage or Seasons deal required).
If the WTG Travels manager
is active in your hood you will sell/delete any certificates from her/his
inventory while he/she is at work. This way the value will not affect the
manager's private accounts. If you run the business in detail, you should
find a way to pass on §100 per certificate to SNUFF. If the WTG Travels
manager is a townie or not so active Sim, you won't need to follow up on
the certificates that pile up in that Sim's inventory.
If the WTG Travels agency
is actively run (deed holder being active), you will find that random Sims
of your hood will bye the certificate. They can sell it or put it
on their study wall for later. Or even pass it along as a gif.

Sim Nation scientists are
not sure how much a flight damages our environment, but everyone agree
that the pollution is present and that it is not a good thing.
WTG Travels like to contribute
not only to the economical side of this question by collecting some funds
for the SNUFF organisation. By selling the WTG certificates we also like
to make Sims aware of the problems the world is facing.
Every Sim needs to be aware
of how our actions affects the environment and the future. The Sim planet
is not as rock solid as we thought, and we all depend on a healthy planet.
We still encourage Sims to
go on vacation, yes even by plane! But our policy includes 5 statements
we should all refer to:
you go on vacation, make sure to have a great time. If not, pollution caused
by you would be totally wasted.
you go on vacation you should stop for a while. Going on two 3 simdays
vacations will pollute twice as much as going on one 7 simdays vacation.
well before you go on vacation. Make a list of some activities you will
join, make sure you know why you are going!
your flight in advance, avoid last minute decissions. Going on short notice
will not only be more expensive, but if everyone order in advance nearly
empty flights could be cancelled or redirected more easilly.
