“Your money is no good here”

The chaos in the region set off by the power plant explosions has broken down the basic economic fabric of society. The value of a Simolean varies wildly from place to place. All major markets have destroyed or looted dry. With the economy of the region in shambles, people are unwilling to ‘go shopping’. The only thing that sells well are stories from survivors, as media outside the region is hungry to know what happened and what it is like to live in such a land.

    • You may not sell buy mode items, items you received as celebrity perks, crafted items, fruits, vegetables or fish via the buy or build tab, through the consignment shop, or at the grocery store. (You may still sell build mode items, such as walls, windows and stairs)
    • Your Sims may not use the “sell” interaction with objects (such as completed paintings, or workbench items)
    • Your Sims *are* allowed to finish writing novels and collect the royalties.
    • Your Sims may not hire service Sims of any kind.
    • Due to broken supply chains, sims may only use the sculptor’s bench or the inventor’s work bench or the easel to make one item per sim day (only one of these objects may be used per day).
    • Also due to broken supply chains, sims are restricted to only the cheapest, most readily available goods on the market. There just AREN’T any high quality things available.
