Are your Sims dreaming of becoming DJs, but they're too hip to spin their tunes for less money?

No more lousy wages!! They can make more money than any rapper! More than any singer! More money than ever!

Your musically-inclined Sims can now spin cool tunes as DJs for a lot of simoleans.

Mod Description:

Both mods modify the money earned by a Sim working the DJ booth. The monetary values are based on the Sim's Creativity skill - low, med or high. They get paid about 3 times per Sim hour, give or take. How many times they get paid is not the same as the wages paid out to cafeteria workers or bartenders.


Payout:

Low Skill: $50 (up to about 4 skill points)
Med Skill: $75 (about 4 to 7 skill points)
High Skill: $100 (about 7 skill points or higher)

Tip:

If your Sim gets the 4th or 7th skill point while working the DJ booth, have him or her stop working the DJ booth and start up again to start earning money at the next wage level or go to a different lot with either DJ booth to start making money at the next wage level too.


The NL version uses the black DJ booth often seen at community lots such as Crypt O' Nightclub, Midnight Flows and so on.

The FT version uses the blue-and-orange DJ booth often seen at the secret hobby lot for Sims with music as their hobbies.

Nightlife and/or FreeTime is required to use each mod. In other words, if you have Nightlife as your latest EP, use the NL mod. If you have FreeTime as your latest EP, use the FT mod. If you have both EPs, you can use both mods at the same time.
