What does this mod do?
Is The Sims 4 too casual for you? Finding a lack of challenge or fun? Sick of getting rich quick only because you have two sims working regular jobs?
This mod fixes that.

This mod lowers the salaries of all adult and teen careers by 40-50%. Doing this makes the wages more realistic and balances the game out nicely.
It does not make the game too hard (for experienced players), yet provides a decent challenge! (Bills will actually make you sad, sometimes)
Now promotion, bonuses and any form of 'extra income' will also mean something and help you out a lot more than it used too!

Why I made this Mod
My biggest pet peeve about The Sims 4 is the fact that money is literally no challenge to obtain. Heck, I would get promotions, raises and bonuses without even trying! I was never aware of exactly 'how much' money I had because it really didn't matter - I always had enough! I never got that awesome feeling of needing to save up and pinch my pennies to afford a fancy new appliance. None of my furniture or items had any value to me what-so-ever because I never felt like I 'worked for them'. Even after I had the best house and best items in the game, I felt like I put little effort in my achievements.

Notes
- There are two files, one for the sims 4 with no expansions, and the other for TS4 plus back to work.
- I'll be adding the careers from city living soon...
- NPC careers are not modified yet, but will be modified in a future update.
- If you like this mod, PLEASE comment and favorite! It encourages me to keep working on it :D

Known Bugs
- Wrong number shown on a promotion notification. You probably won't even notice it and does not affect gameplay. Will be fixed, eventually
