Hi folks...
Why is it that you can't bring the funds a sim has earned in university
on through to "real-life"? I had a male sim do particularly well in school
and had over 13k when he graduated. When he went back to Pleasantville he ,
in my opinion, should have added that total to the 20k base....sigh

I totally agree! I always cheat with 'kaching' to get them
back up to approximately where they were when they left college.
I think it's only fair.

Well, he *earned* 7k then, didn't he? :-p

There is a cheat to bring cash you make with you and stuff... but it
also eliminates the 20k free throughout the game *lol*

I'd do like Laura suggests and cheat.

I generally spend all the money on improving the dorms, and whatever
is left, I put in in art and sculptures before my sim leaves, so the
next group of students can sell them and buy stuff.

That's a good idea! I usually spin some tale about a parent having a secret
college fund. 8(
Well it soothes my concience.

I have a mod that means they don't even get the 20K. They get a percentage
of the household budget, and lump it. I don't know if they get to keep their
Uni money by this method (I haven't graduated anyone since I installed it)
but I think that that would be the case. It is a Pescado mod from
Variousimmers.

They do. But of course, then they don't the 20k, so it's a bad deal.

But more realistic. I have a group of Pleasantview ancestors who banded
together to build a good house when they moved into the neighbourhood. Now
they are madly saving to move out into their own houses.
