Careers in The Sims 5 Need to be More Lucrative
A further problem in The Sims 4 is the underwhelming income generated by careers. Surprisingly, cultivating flowers proves to be a more lucrative and efficient endeavor than pursuing the highest-earning career path, while also requiring significantly less effort. Although this presents a handy workaround, it casts a negative light on the game’s career options when the daily profits from selling flowers surpass the weekly salary of the top-tier profession.
In The Sims, earning money is essential, and for players who thrive on the game’s diverse challenges, career paths should offer more competitive pay in comparison to hobbies, particularly when a Sim is off-screen for the majority of the day, leaving players with only sporadic pop-ups for entertainment. Although the Freelancer career marks a positive shift, its less-than-lucrative gigs and reliance on reputation can be disheartening for players, especially when focusing on the Gardening skill emerges as a more logical investment.
