I'm super excited to release the first version of this addition to the SNB mod, Bills. This addition is the initial project offering from our newest Developer, Victor Andrade. I hope you like this addition. We plan to add more features to this soon!

Mod Summary

This small add-on will revamp EA’s billing system by splitting out Water & Sewer, Electricity, Trash and Property Taxes. Each bill creates an adverse effect if not paid.

Can I install this mod and only use it for certain families or saves?

Yes. This Bills Add-On needs to be manually activated. Bills will produce and be paid as normal if not activated. 

Do I need to have SNB installed in order to use this addition?

No. The Bills Add-On was initially created as a stand alone addition. 

What other features are you looking to add to the addition?

We have a few additions coming soon, which are listed below. However, if there's great interest in this and Patron requests for certain features to be added we will look into adding more in the future. 

  • SNB Main Mod Integration
  • Add access for Teen Sims
  • Possibly add in new Bill Types if there's enough interest (i.e. Income Tax, Cable Bill, Cell Phone Bill, etc)

Hello! Such an awesome idea, thank you so much for the work. 

I wanted to ask if it's possible to turn off/on certain bills? In australia we don't directly pay for trash removal, it's done through taxes. Or another situation could be if you were role playing living in a rental, sometimes the landlord will pay for your water or electricity bills and make you pay for the other. I haven't played the mod yet, waiting for some other mods to update for recent patch. But was wondering if this was possible :D

thanks!

Hi! Love the mod :-) 

Will you all be able to make it so SNB -bills will work with off-the grid objects and not have to sign up for water or electricity to use them? I'm using the wood burning stove, a shower, toilet, and sink that are all off-the grid objects...but in order to use them I still have to pay for water (shower & toilet) and electricity (to use wood burning stove). Thanks!

I love this. Would be nice to set higher bills, or lower career payments. Something to make it challenging.

I could even imagine a mod that sets new realistic prices for the build/buy objects. 50 Simoleons for a toiletroll holder, 70 Simoleons for a tree or a window? huh?

LOL! We got more Bills coming. This addition will most likely spice up your game ;) 

Sneak Peek of this can be found this month's newsletter: https://www.simrealist.com/post/october-2019-realist-re-cap

loving the mod so far. I hope cable and cell phone bills can eventually be added. I know over the air antennas are a thing but I don’t think all the Sims TV should be free. 

We got you covered on this! Coming December! Sneak Peek can be found here: https://www.simrealist.com/post/october-2019-realist-re-cap
