** About trades in Simmerville **
We had a few requests from local farmers, fishermen, artists and crafters about the trades ongoing on Mervil Market. Some ask whether their producs need to be sold via the market, or if they can sell it directly to the larger market (just like that).
The basic rule is that all products shall be sold via Mervil Market. The reason for this is that we need to keep accounts on the local produce, and also we need to meet some restrictiuons set by the Sim Nation directives.
There are some exceptions though, allowing you to sell the following products directly, without involving Mervil Market: Paintings, failed/malfunctioning products such as pottery, sewing. Restored cars. Any product that cannot be placed in your inventory (ie candy).
If you are not sure, contact Mervil Market to check!
** New routine for household networth ranking **
Simmerville's official household index do rank households by total networth. This far the networth has been reflecting all values of the household, including growhn up children who should be seen as lodgers until they move out. Households containing 2 or more households have summed every assets. In this way a poor sim letting a room to a wealthy sim will rank way too high on the index.
This will now change to make a better system. Only 1 Sim being head of the household (normally the house owner) will affect the household's networth. This starts on simday 86 and the index will be updated shortly.
** Food Expo 2008 **
This year's Food Expo is organized by SimCity, but all hjoods are invited to have their local arrangements, as well as visiting whatever goes on in their nearest downtown district. The procedure is like the past years, food in the garden in June, food in the kitchen (July) and food on the table (August). In Simmerville the main location will of course be Mervil Market. Stop by to pick up latest info. Johanna's Kitchen will also offer specials, and Gobelin Family Cemetery are still showing off various vegetables as they grow (go there to help tending them!).
** Simmerville might consider becoming a Kingdom **
The Hood Council is debating whether the hood should have a Royal family instead of just a hood council with a Spokes Sim. We have not yet decided whether there will be an election or if simply the current Spokes Sim should become the King. More info to follow shortly, check your mailbox!
