PostSubject: Rosebud Challenge - Can you become a Sim-Millionaire?   Sat Sep 20, 2014 6:09 pm

Welcome to Rosebud {Rags to Riches} Revamped 08.14.2018 by EQ
With so many new options available now it is time for an update. 
Rosebud is a Rags to Riches style Challenge.
The ultimate goal is to 'Gain 1,000,000 Simoleons in a single household' completing the Rosebud achievement. Making money can be a grind so why not have some fun along the way.
But first the basics of how to start the challenge and play and some added options.
Some of this will sound familiar because it is but with updates to include added pack options.
Where to begin:
The Household: ¥¥
Create a fresh household with Zero skills.
Preferably one Young Adult.
Can be your own or from the gallery.
Please give credit when using the creations of someone else.
Appearance, aspirations and traits are up to you.
Aliens and Vampires are allowed.
Choose wisely as they will be fending for themselves for a while.
You are encouraged to share your household using #Rosebud #RosebudChallenge #RagsToRiches #Rags2Riches and your own personal hashtag.
Normal life span setting.. Youth Potions are allowed to keep your Sim young.
For a bit of an easier start you can have two Sims but No more than two per household.
Cannot live without a Pet? You can create one Cat or Dog to start or adopt a stray.
Remember to provide for your Pets basic needs.
Dogs: Food dish and one toy.
Cats: Food dish, litter box, one toy and scratch post.
A few Wellness Treats may come in handy. Don't forget to factor in any visits to the vet.
The Lot: ¥¥
Place your Sim on an empty lot with nothing but a mailbox and outdoor trashcan (which will have to be bought).
An Outdoor trashcan can be bought before reducing funds to Zero.
Indoor trashcans cannot be emptied without an outdoor one.
Size of the lot is up to you ... my favorite 30x20 size.
Starting Funds: ¥¥
Once moved into Empty lot must set starting funds to Zero.
This can be achieved by using the money cheat described below.
Cheats to reduce funds:
Activate testing cheats on
Type Money 000 (These are Zeros)
FYI: “Money ###”–Set’s funds to exact number
Or: “Sims.modify_funds +/-###” –Adds or subtracts value from current funds
Example: “Money 25000″ or “Sims.modify_funds +500”
This would be the only cheat allowed with exception of glitches.
Glitches = can use TestingCheats on in the event of a true glitch.
Guidelines for Playing:
Earning Money: ¥¥
You can Collect, Fish, Smooze, Garden, Craft or play for tips (if skill is high enough).
Jobs:
Get to 500§ before getting a job. Consider it like an application fee.
Housing and spouse/move in another Sim:
Requires walls, a door and a window. Plumbing of at least one toilet and a sink. Fridge for quick meals.  Sleep spot for each Sim. 
Adding a Roommate or Spouse:
Must have enclosed space as described above.
Only the bathroom would require full enclosure.
Must add Roommate via 'Ask to Move In' action. If you really have your eye on a special Sim in the Gallery they can be added to your population but NOT directly to your lot. You can add them to either an existing household, an empty lot (they can fend for themselves) or to the 'Not in this World (homeless) population. This Sim cannot be played to add funds etc until added to your household.
Must add housemates to your current lot. Options are to add a roommate via 'Ask to Move In' or add as a spouse. Made a bad choice? Only your original Sim is required to stay on the lot. Additional housemates or family can be moved out at any time via Manage World option.
Option Restrictions: ¥¥ (Not required)
Limit purchases (build/buy) only once per week. Bill Day (usually Monday) after the bills are paid is a good time.  You have 24 hours from when the bills arrive to purchase items or remodel the lot. Did you forget to buy something? It will have to wait until the next week.
Exceptions: Books, Repair Parts or Seeds which are bought via computer, bookcase or planter box.
Exception: You may buy an item to mark the day you use a Youth Potion. (Only if you want to track how long it takes to complete the Rosebud goal.)
This is an unpredictable date so is an exception to the purchasing restrictions.
Improving the Lot: ¥¥
Build your own or use one from the gallery.
*Must be Empty to start!
Note: This is your home thru the challenge.
Warning: the more 'stuff' the higher the bills.
Go slow at first so your Sim will not have to starve or go without power/ water.
 
Okay all set... now for some tips and tricks and other fun stuff.
 
Aspirations List for Base Game and All Current Packs (Updated thru JungleAdventure)
01 Animal - Friend of the Animals (Cats & Dogs)
02 Athletic - Bodybuilder
03 Creativity - Painter / Writer / Musician
04 Deviance - Public Enemy / Chief of Mischief
05 Family - Four choices (Including Super Parent & Vampire Family)
06 Food - Culinary / Mixology / Grilled Cheese (Unlocked)
07 Fortune - Wealth / Property
08 Knowledge - Three choices plus Master Vampire
09 Location - City Native (City Living)
10 Love - Serial Romantic / Soulmate
11 Nature - Botanist / Fisherman / Curator / Outdoor Enthusiast (OR Pack)
12 Popularity - Joker / Friend / Party / Leader of the Pack / Good Vampire
 
Outdoor Retreat: Tents and coolers are allowed. The portable shower can be used outdoors without being embarrassed.
Get Together / Jungle Adventure: Potty bush provides a place to nap and for bladder relief.
{Just be sure to do them in that order.. or ... ew!}
Until there is a proper house a single wall (or tall half wall) with a door can serve as the front door. This keeps visitors from knocking and entering say the bathroom at an inconvenient time.
One counter and a fridge is all that is needed to prepare and store food. Both cooking and gourmet cooking skills can be maxed with just these two items.
Get Together: Clubs are a great way to gain skills and make friends.  Only two Sims are required to start your own club. Setting activities like writing, painting, crafting on the woodwork bench not only helps gain skills but also improves earning power. Purchasing club boosts can also enhance job performance leading to promotions and higher wages.
Lot Traits lend powerful boosts to learning and eventually earning more money.
Challenge yourself and have some fun along the way.
Complete the challenge without a traditional career.
Complete an aspiration you have not done before.
Take your time and enjoy playing.

Potential amendments
Added 30Sept2014
Known Issue Rambunctious Scamp (Child Aspiration) with action 'Play on Jungle Gym While Playful' is not met.
Issue was added to Sims 4 Official Bug List.
Temporary work around: Open cheat panel using control shift  C and type in the command:
Aspirations.complete_current_milestone
This will complete that level of the aspiration.
***Thread at EA Answer HQ - Just saw another possible solution.
Go to park while playful and play on the Ship instead of the Jungle Gym.
~
Clarification in answer to question asked:
Q. Do you purchase a trashcan before setting funds to zero or after? (Great question LadyGee)
A. Since mailbox and trashcan are standard issue  (Sims 3 they are included with each lot) you can buy one before reducing funds if you want.
Be sure it is one of the outdoor ones.
~ ~ ~ Added 06 October 2014 ~ ~ ~
How to track family net worth.
In Live mode open the Options Menu at top right of the screen. (...)
Select Achievements
From the list on the left choose Wealth & Collecting
The Rosebud achievement will show your financial worth and progress toward the goal.

What I learned testing this challenge: Adding in random order
Plan ahead for multiple generations.
Keep number of Sims in the household at a manageable number for each generation.
More Sims means more food and resources consumed and less bankroll.
Remember to concentrate on making as much income possible per generation.
More possessions means higher bills.
Keep only the minimum items / aspiration rewards needed and sell the rest.
Higher quality beds, plumbing, appliances and computers will contribute to your success.
Gardening is very time intensive and requires a lot of work.
Scout out where to find a few choice items to harvest in the wild and keep gardens small to supplement recipes and sell for income.
The topiary object can be used to gain gardening skills.
Potions and extra traits can be your friend - if you earned them you can use them.
Save a few Simoleons (and space) on Baby/Kid items. Unless adopting a baby a crib is automatically supplied by the game.
Once the baby becomes a child the crib can be sold.

WOW. This will be interesting to see if it can be done. My family is generation 3 as kids and they now have 48,928 (just checked) with 4 adults working. My guess is it will take a long, long time to get to a million simoleans. And they do not have a super fancy house.

Much better than when it was one room, but still not an extravagant one. And the bills are so much higher than in 3. I think my family pays over 4000 in bills now! My 3 family with over 40 million simoleans and huge houses packed with stuff does not pay that I am pretty sure.

I expect you are correct Daisylee and this will NOT be a one generation challenge.

My generation one had Adrianne make it to a celebrity chef so she made pretty good simoleans. And Alain made a fair amount from the garden and paintings. Actually they pretty much lived off those sales for a while. His career became bugged and so he never was getting promoted. I had the problem where he would show as at work when not and he would get promoted to the same level over and over. Finally had him quit the job and just concentrate on being the freelance botanist.

Their 2 sons and their wives are all working now and getting promotions. Even with 4 bringing in $ they aren't making that much. Your 2 probably need spouses asap and to have kids asap to get as many adults in the household working before they are gone. It will be fun to see what happens.

I did not think to write down what the family was worth when Adrianne, my founder died. I should try to note it when the 4 Bs generation is gone.
