Patch status for this and all of my mods can be found on my Mod Status page

Mod Compatibility & Requirements
This mod was made with game version 1.48.94. No additional packs required.
Updated for patch 1.52.100

Known Issues
  • None.

Mod Description
Your sims (Young Adult and up) can now apply for loans from SimCity Bank. When your sim needs a loan have them click on the computer and select SimCity Loans. From there you will select which loan amount you want.

Loan Amounts include:
  • §1,000
  • §5,000
  • §10,000
  • §25,000
  • §50,000
  • §100,000
  • §250,000
  • §500,000
Once you select the loan amount, your sim will receive a Loan Packet in their inventory (which is not delete-able). Your sim will then be responsible for repaying it! When repaying the loan, you have two options:
  • Repay in full with no interest.
  • Make 12, 24, or 36 payments which includes a 5% interest rate.

If your sim doesn’t make a payment (or pay in full) within 48 hours, he/she will receive a Loan Payment Due (fine mood) buff. If your sim ignores this buff for 24 hours, this buff will turn into a Loan Payment Overdue! (stressful mood) buff. The only way to remove this is to make a payment (or pay in full).

If your Debtor sim dies, the loan packet will be sent to the household inventory (still not delete-able). After you place it on your lot, another household sim can use the Take Over Loan interaction. This will add the loan packet to that sim’s inventory and he/she will be responsible. Don’t worry, any payments that the deceased sim made won’t be lost!

If your Debtor sim dies and gets added back to the household either as a ghost or resurrected, they won’t have the loan packet anymore (obviously since it went to the household inventory). However, they can’t take out a loan. They’ll have to use the computer and click on SimCity Loans > Request Loan Forgiveness, then after 3 days they can apply for a loan again if needed.

  • Sims can only have one active loan at a time. However, once your sim pays off the loan, you can click on the loan packet and select Destroy. Your sim can then take out another loan if desired.
  • The loan packet is not drag-able! This was done on purpose to keep it in your sims inventory for needed buffs and interaction availability. It’s also not delete-able, for obvious reasons….no skipping out on your debt!
  • If you move your household while the loan packet is on the lot (after placing it from the household inventory), it can be found in the household inventory once again. No running away from it until it’s paid!
    If you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to join me at my discord. You’ll get a much faster response from me there.

**NOTE - If you use Basemental Drugs and your Sim gets arrested, they will lose their loan packet as well. If this happens, you'll have to use the Request Loan Forgiveness option on the computer.

  • Add more severe consequences for overdue loans
  • Add fee for requesting loan forgiveness.
  • More to come

Mod Conflicts
No known conflicts. It should work well with all mods (including any other loan type mods) because it has its own resources.
