Familyfunds Edit

Maybe it should be noted that the cheat for familyfunds on Sims 3 only works for lot families and not bin families unlike it's predecessor. I also do not think you could subtract funds from a certain household. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) May 27, 2010 (UTC) - Sign your comments with ~~~~

1 British pound is how many simoleon? Edit

Hi, I want to make Simoleon as a "custom currency" in OpenTTD. I also can chose the strength of my currencies in that game. Anyone knows £1 is how many § worth?

You do realise that Simoleons are a fictional currency, thus they are not equivalent with real-life currency, right? (talk) 16:17, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
Think about it a pizza cost §40
Simoleons aren't real, so therre would be no equivalent

Eww. Edit

Simoleons are UGLY. Is there a mod that turns them green, like actual money? Me!-Bwahaha! 22:05, August 5, 2013 (UTC)Hurshbr

Mind you, bills are not exactly green. There are several default replacements in MTS, but The Sims 2 only. [1] [2] [3] [4] Nikel Talk Vote! 18:40, August 7, 2013 (UTC)

adding Simoleon symbol Edit

how do i add a Simoleon symbol? (talk) 00:16, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

Easy. All you have to do is switch to Source mode, and at the top, you should see a button labelled more+. Once there, find a Simoleon symbol and click on it. Your done! Joey.eyeball (talk) 00:23, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
Like this → § . Also, that should be "You're done", not "Your done". Things like that drive me nuts. K6ka (talk | contribs) 00:37, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
Whoops, my grammar isn't the best. Joey.eyeball (talk) 00:44, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
You can also add the Simoleon symbol by holding down alt and pressing 2 then 1 on the number pad! :) ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 01:43, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
@Waikikamukow, it doesn't work. Joey.eyeball (talk) 01:48, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
It works for me. Make sure your keyboard is configured as "US". Not all settings may work. K6ka (talk | contribs) 02:18, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
Different things work for different people. Alt+2+1 probably works on most computers running Windows (assuming there is a number pad on your keyboard and num lock is turned on). If nothing else, you can google 'section symbol' and just copy/paste the symbol as needed. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 02:41, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
Assuming you're using laptop keyboard, you can't use the regular Num Pad just under the F1 - F12 buttons. You should enable the Num Lock and press the Num Pad that's usually in J, K, L, U, I, O, 7, 8, 9, and M keys. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:02, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

Real-life equivalent Edit

I think I have found a real-life equivalent to the Simoleon: the Japanese yen (¥). 100 ¥ is equivalent to 1 £/$ (Pounds/Dollars), and from what I have seen, 1,000 § (Simoleons) is equivalent to 100 £/$, which would logically mean 100 § I equivalent to 1 £/$, therefore meaning ¥ and § would be the same value in pounds/dollars. I'm not sure if it was intentional but it seems to be the case. Eagle flame369 (talk) 16:37, October 12, 2015 (UTC)

It's hard to draw a direct comparison between Simoleons and any real currency, because in-game prices are sometimes widely inflated for some goods and deflated for others. You can buy a decent house in the game for §20,000; that would be only $2000 following your formula, which is dramatically lower than the actual cost of a real-life house (which very often are priced in the hundreds of thousands of dollars). Simoleons are a constructed currency meant to operate within the "economic model" of The Sims; it won't translate easily into any real-world model. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 16:47, October 12, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, but following the general consensus other than ridiculous prices, the sensible prices indicate a formula similar to ¥. Eagle flame369 (talk) 18:35, October 12, 2015 (UTC)
