I found that gaining money in the vanilla game was a little bit too much of a chore, but other economy mods I have tried made making money so easy it lost any challenge at all.
Finally I went into the files and created my own economy mod. This mod slightly edits the economy so that both you and your drivers earn a little more money. Additionally you get 25% fuel discount at your own garages instead of 15%.
The changes are minor so that it still takes a while to gain cash, but it is a little easier.
Built from scratch to work with the 1.9 patch. Also works with Promods.
V2 info: The XP reward for parking has been dropped from 300 to 100 (vanilla 45) as it was raising your rank too quickly early game.
Reward bonuses have been reduced as you could make too much money from them too quickly. They are still more than vanilla just not as high as in V1.
