I have a question for the knowledgeable folks... Are some of the properties in EA-Land (Skill houses and Money houses) subsidized by EA? IOW, are some of these places being supported by EA for costs of skill/money objects, etc. It just seems to me that the cost of these objects is so high, the costs of property and building is so high (considering how low payouts are, relatively speaking), that I can't see how these places popped up with so many objects so quickly. Also, how are these people paying for repair/replacement of broken objects considering the costs to repair/replace and considering that they are no longer receiving bonuses for visitors? That means that operating costs of these places are coming directly out of the owners/roomies pockets--they can't be self-supporting. I can't believe these people are buying that many Simoleans from the ATM's, and they can't be earning that much at the money houses--payouts aren't great enough and they wouldn't have the time anyway since they have their houses open constantly.
