    I'm sick of the low payouts, too. I slaved over ONE gnome the other night only to receive a grand total of $7.
     
  4. I would be willing to bet that payouts will never rise. Over the long term, anyway.

  5. Eh...max skill you get about $52. I don't do too bad when I actually go boarding for a couple hours.

    However when you factor in the cost of simple items like (litter box that cost thousands) then I see a problem with $52. lol.

    I'm kind of annoyed by the whole system. It reminds me of IMVU, where you basically have to be a CC maker, or pay to get game money. It just makes it very difficult to make any money at all. My sim has made a grand total of 125 simoleans for 3 shifts of work, which wouldn't be so bad except that everything on EAL is so expensive, that 125 simoleans doesnt go very far.

    yeah these payouts are crazy! I don't even bother to go make money because you would have to be there for hours just to get a little bit.
    A lot cost 9-10k to make that you would need to pizza for about 10 rounds which is like 45 min each round
     
  8. I make cc, but not a lot...and I rely on another store to sell it, since I hate keeping a property open..its boring to me.

    I made a little money then they raised the cost to upload cc and I can't barely make any money now...

    You have to over price your stuff, and dedicate all your time, to really make any money.

    Factory payouts for 45 mins of work you can make around $1200 starting on lvl 6 and over $2000 once you get to lvl 9 and 10. AND Of course have fun and meet new people while you are at it [​IMG]
     
  14. Yeah, I dont understand why playrs just don't get jobs.

    I'm a DJ Level 7 and bring home about 1K for every 45 RL minutes with max skills. Oh and a cool, red sports car picks me up to work, too. Jobs is where its at! I havent gnomed in years...

    CarlosN Guest

    by max skills do you mean all of your skills or just what the job requires?
     
  16. Yeah...DJ requires Creativity while Dancers require Body, so its a good idea to max those.

    Factory workers requires mech, if Im not mistaken and waiters need charisma.

    I still wish the payout situation would right itself. Its very difficult to get any money at all. I've never been very good at the jobs. I do the work, but it takes a while to get to a level where you make anything. In the 5 years I've been playing, I haven't been promoted once XD

  20. i don't really mind the payouts... I don't waste my time with signle job objects like boards or jams. I work at the restaurant job track and I love to pizza. I think I make a decent amount of money doing that. Of course I wouldn't mind if they were raised but I don't think its necessary.

    With how much mech and how many other people doing it? I've made jams with sims with 10-15 points of cooking and never gotten lower than 20 simoleans with the max number of people jamming. I tried it with a sim who didn't have any cooking, with max number people jamming, and got 8 or 9, I believe.....so are you trying to do this with no mech?

    My sim did that at first too, with the restaurant track...the first 2 or 3 levels don't pay anything hardly, but now that she's up to Wily Watron she's making 1000 simoleans a shift (which is a green cycle) so that's not as bad. If you can hang in there and get past those first few 'grunt' levels, especially if you're working restaurant, you'll be rewarded for that tenacity with better money [​IMG]
