Heck yes! I also thought of one other thing: If you win an item, the closest person who was in the bidding war with you (relationship and lifetime points-wise) will become furious at you. I'm sure this mod would be difficult and long-winded, but it would be so funny and cool to see. I know that Simslice has a "home shopping phone" which lets you buy stuff like the aspiration rewards, so that's a start.

You can do home shopping with Monique's computer. Not bidding though.

Remi also extracted maxis braces textures from the game here (along with hidden hickies textures, lol, I wonder what maxis was planning to do with them).

For a action like this it would be cool, to have a small Sales stand. That you can put in front of the House and People that walk by can check a Pinboard or something were the stuff to sell is marked on... and "Auto" Buy it. So you dont need to "Open" a Business on the Lot. Of course allso good when you want to sell your over Production on stuff you made while "Training" your Sim.

In the meantime, the buyer's household funds is lowered by the same amount, and the object is placed in their inventory.

No need to start a (temporary) home business, no yard sale, and no trifling with sims bringing stuff for the yard sale.


Thats true. But only fun if the funds lowered from the Buyer's Account - only when its a Player action and not a "NPC" one... Else many of my Sims go fast into -$

Not necessarily. The system could make sure that uncontrolled sim never bids more than they currently have in household funds. Sims that can't afford an item, should not be able to bid.
And if somesim gets the item, it's only fair that they also pay for it. If the player later gets to that household and finds them without cash, they can sell the bought objects again. If you don't want them to pay, then they also don't win the item. Fair is fair.
Furthermore, sims of a currently unplayed household should ONLY be able to bid if there is a working computer on the lot. Computers in a sim's inventory are not working and can not be used to bid.

*I* think that I'm an idiot. If *you* press the "disagree" button, I'll take that as a compliment and appreciate it a lot :)

Thank you, joandsarah! I just installed that and I like it quite a bit. One other thing I'd like to see modded in (or back in, technically) is the first person camera. Apparently the mod existed on this very site, but the creator deleted it... I'd love to play the game in the Sims' perspective!

You can sort of do that, put the items out the front and use the auto till. I was thinking of putting a few gnome pumpkins out not set for sale, and seeing who steals them.

@frogz2007 What, Monique's computer? Make sure you get the latest version.
