With this mod, your sims will be charged for Taxi rides. Your sim will call a taxi, pay the fee accordingly, and continue to their destination as usual.
Is your sim addicted to riding taxis? Have you had enough of their free rides? Do you think Sailor Moon is the best anime ever?
Well, you're in luck!
Starting today, you can now charge your sims for their precious taxi rides. That's right! Surprise them like giving your cat their first bath. They will love it for sure! So whenever they call for a taxi, they will charged a fee every time.
This is a full script custom mod that took forever to code, so I'm sure it will be downloaded with love.
How It Works
This code is activated whenever a sim calls or uses a taxi.
To be fair to everyone, there are different fees for each age group.
To have the children use the taxi, they must be grouped with a teen or older. Otherwise, they will use their default bike taxi. Still testing this.
I did not want everyone to pay the same fee. In the real world, there are discounts for the age groups.
If the base fee is 20 simoleons, Elders will pay 50% (10 simoleons), Teens will pay 70% (14 simoleons), and Children will pay 30% (6 simoleons).
You can change the Base fee and the discount percentages in the XML file (inside of the package).
When and if you change the discount percent prices, DO NOT ADD PERCENT SYMBOLS or it will not work.

Jae reviewed this mod on his channel. Great review! Thank you so much!
To change the values of the fees, you can edit the XML file in the package.

How to translate this mod?
Thank you, Translation Donators!
To install, delete the script package file in your Sims 3 folder, and place mod in your Packages folder, somewhere.

Base Game Compatible.
Game Tested: I have tested with all games installed (except the Katy Perry and Movie Stuff - did not want to buy), and had a small testing party with random people whom I lured with free
Warning: No stealing, lying, cheating on your llama-wife, and eating other people's food without proper inspection.
This mod would not be possible if not for my friend, SucialSpiders, who wanted a taxi charge in the game. I have finished this in your honor.
Ms. Byte (CmarNYC). I know, you know, we all know how many times I have said 'Thank you' to you while creating this. If not for your guidence and forcing me to relearn a language that has been dead in my head for so long, I would not have finished this mod. I honestly would have just given it to you. Thank you once again (not the last time).
For the other people who have tested this mod and have given advice, Thank You for your services. Your sims game will love you.
Last but not least, my computer. Because you held out until the end, or until I replaced your battery. You are the best thing ever. Let's watch Sailor Moon sometime, yes?
