SimNation Travel Mod – Traveling Made Easy
Sims can now travel both domestically and internationally, with added features designed to make traveling simpler than ever before. If you want to add some realism into your Sims’ lives, the SimNation Travel mod has everything covered.
Obtaining Travel Documents
Before your Sims embark on an international journey, they’ll need a passport. They can get one from either their local Passport office or online; applying for one is possible anytime with delivery times ranging from 12 to 48 hours. However, shipping and service fees apply.
Subway Travel with Sims
Subway travel is an economical, hassle-free option for local travel. It doesn’t need servicing and it costs little to use – however, there is one catch: your Sims must possess a pass to ride it. This pass can be acquired by any Child-Elder or higher Sim and lasts either 7 days, 14 days, or 28 depending on which type you purchase.
Your Sim needs a driver’s license in order to operate a car. They can obtain one from their local Department of Motor Vehicles for $35.00; just remember, only the owner of this license can drive it! Similar to motorcycles, only one Sim at a time may possess it.
Resetting Your Mods
If you’re new to this mod or have already tested it out, the developer suggests that you reset your current settings in the in-game cheats menu (accessed by turning testingcheats on). Selecting Reset Mod will delete all cars, licenses, passports and subway passes from every Sim in your neighborhood.
Introduced with The Sims 4: Discover University, bikes are another means of transportation for your Sims. While they’re easy to purchase and register, they must then be serviced approximately once every season or 21 days.
If you plan on doing a lot of traveling with this mod, make sure your Sims are well-prepared. They should practice writing, sharpen their photography skills, review food and performances in foreign lands, and engage with locals when possible.
They can earn the Travel Critic aspiration by visiting foreign cities and writing reviews about them. This is one of the most rewarding aspirations in this mod, since it allows your Sims to get paid for their reviews.
Furthermore, your Sims must rewrite their reviews and boost their ratings in order to move up in the rankings. While this takes some effort, the reward of advancement in the game is worth all the hard work!
Once your Sims embark on their international adventures, they’ll need to pay a rental deposit and book an international travel reservation. Prices for such reservations can range anywhere from $50-250, depending on where they’re headed.
