Sims 4 50% Reduced Salary Mod (Updated for Snowy Escape)

Sims 4 Reduced Salary mod

I’ve been using Satira’s 50% Reduced Salary mods for a long time, but unfortunately they haven’t been updated for the most recent expansion packs. So, I dusted off Sims 4 Studio and figured out how to create the same mod for Eco Living and Snowy Escape.

The Civil Designer and Salaryperson careers have their pay AND bonus amounts reduced by 50%. The pay for working from home assignments has also been reduced for Civil Designer. (Work from home is not an option for Salaryperson.)

I plan to keep these mods updated and I will do the same for any new careers added to the game in the future. All updates and additions will be added to this page. Satira’s mods for all previous expansions are still working fine.


I’ve included separate package files so you don’t have to download them both if you don’t need them. You must have the associated expansion for these to work.

To install, just download the file(s) and place directly into your Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods folder. The files are not zipped. You can place them one subfolder deep if you want.

As always, I have tested these in my own game, but please let me know if you find any issues.

  1. This is great. I am wondering if you plan to update for the newer careers to date. I noticed you mentioned the career overhaul mod above, but that is heavier than I was hoping to find. I just want them to earn less.

  2. I love your tutorials, and I know you have gripes with the sims 4 so I appreciate sims 4 guides. It’s my favorite, and I respect your opinion.

    • Thanks Kitty! All of the Sims games have their issues, but I like them all for different reasons. Sims 2 is my favorite, but I still enjoy playing Sims 4 these days too. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Cindy,
    Will you add in the paranormal investigator job at some point? I enjoy the job, but the salary is way to overpowered for my liking πŸ˜…

    • Hi! Yes, I made this mod. (I wouldn’t post it on my blog if someone else made it.) πŸ™‚

      I edited the tuning in Sims 4 Studio for each individual job level and changed the corresponding text strings, then saved as a package file. It wasn’t too hard to figure out!
