What This Mod Does: Gives your family more money when you make them in CAS. Only choose ONE file.
20k: Gives single member families $20,000 and $2,000 more per family member.
25k: Gives single member families $25,000 and $2,500 more per family member.
30k: Gives single member families $30,000 and $3,000 more per family member.
40k: Gives single member families $40,000 and $4,000 more per family member.
What This Mod Does NOT Do: Give you a red smiley face next to your money, cure AIDS, and bring world peace.
What Type Of Mod: A really simple XML edit. Like, crazy simple.
What It Overrides: It overrides the default amount of money your Sims start with.
Known Issues: None. Please drop me a comment if you come across a bug, though!
Compatibility: It should be compatible to any and all games, patches, etc. The only thing it would conflict with is anything else that edits the "CASLogic" file, which is any file that gives your Sims more money in CAS. But why would you have two of these types of files downloaded anyway? ;D

6/21/2010 - Fixed the 25k flavor. Used to just give 2,500. X) Also added a 40k flavor and cleaned up the page to make it easier to follow.

Thank you for creating and sharing this, I really hated the new default amount sims are given without this mod.

25k version seems to be working with patch 1.50.

This is exactly what I was looking for just now. Finally my Sims will be able to be a little richer from the start! :)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Now I don't need to do the "put-the-family-in-an-empty-lot-motherlode-then-move" steps :)

Of course, I still need to do that if I'm targetting a 70'000+ house, but this is a great mod.

Thank you very much. The 25K works for 1.67, so I guess it also works for the other versions.
Finally I have more choices for a starting house. It seems most neighbourhoods only have starting houses just above the 16.500, just to annoy you. Normally I adjust those houses, delete a painting or replace a bed with a cheaper one. Or just delete temporarely something. When you finally moved in, you get a free portal, you start with a camera, etc. Sell them all and I could by the temporarely deleted something back. What a waist of time.
Thank to you this now saves a lot of time.

Thanks for this, but I was just looking for the correct XML file to edit. This mod, while it works for what it is supposed to, does not include things in the CASLogic XML that are normally there.

There are a bunch of things about Pets that aren't included in hers, that are included in the one for your game. If you don't have the Pets expansion it doesn't matter, but if you ever play with Pets, it would.

Just wanted to let people know; technically it DOES work, but it will make other things NOT work.

(I found the information that I wanted on page 2 of the comments. So thank you! )
