This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.


Do your Sims have endless cash sitting in their bank accounts, and still do not have enough objects to invest their fortunes in? Well now comes an update to the previously available bars sold here on ModTheSims, and perhaps from around the Web. These bullion ingots are refined for your Sims to purchase direct from The Sims World Bank LLC. Take a good look at these fine precious metals that your Sim can have for the right price!







Read more about these bars from the pictures showcased in this thread from the attachments nearby. What you'll be downloading from here are any or all three of the bars shown, & a light-weight storage unit for these bars to rest on, while being stored at your Sims's home, business, or other location (secret or otherwise). Watch as these bars glisten in the sun...& maybe get stolen from a thief (if there are such Sims in your neighborhood).

As for editing the images, I use Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Thank you for these! I'm always on the lookout for items that my Money Sims can use.

Edit: I had the ingots ingame for 2 game days. The copper ingots are still worth 7$; the silver are worth 640$; but the gold bars all show 0$. That's a lot of depreciation!

Cool! I'm always on the lookout for loot for those pixels..I've longed to build a Ft. Knox, but never had the right racks to do it with. Thank you for your work in the metal-smithing! They're lovely!

Oh wow, that's not supposed to happen. I'll look into it.

EDIT: @XiaXiang001, okay the bars are fixed. They should be back to 32,000 simoleons. Try overwriting the old file in your downloads folder with the current one.

Love this! Thanks!
Bronze metal would be cool, too but I can live without that.

This is delightful!. I've just started playing the Medieval Charter Challenge and this will be perfect for storing the King's treasury. Thanks a bunch.

@Jawusa - why would you want bronze? It would have to be cheaper than copper, so wouldn't be very useful for storing treasure.

It's about time someone made this, this changes everything, would be great to have some sort of inventory storage for this like a big vault or safe.

Thanks for this. Now, my rich sims can invest in something simple. It sucks that there's no way to make the value higher than $32,000.
