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

Rosebud Challenge - Can you become a Sim-Millionaire?
In Sims 4 is an achievement called Rosebud with the following goal:
'Gain 1,000,000 Simoleons in a single household'
That is the idea behind this challenge.
Using the basic guidelines from RIMS (Rain In My Shoes) the challenge begins with a Sims with no visible means of support.
The Sim(s):
Fresh household with Zero skills.
Life span on Normal.
No more than two per household. *Edit: More can be added later. See below.
Preferably Young Adult.
Can be your own or from the gallery.
Please give credit when using the creations of someone else.
Aspirations and traits are up to you.
Choose wisely as they will be fending for themselves for a while.
The Lot:¥¥ Updated 24 January 2017
Nothing but a mailbox and maybe a trashcan (which will have to be bought).
*Edit: 30 September 2014 - You may buy an Outdoor trashcan before reducing funds to Zero.
Indoor trashcans cannot be emptied without an outdoor one.
Size is up to you but I am starting on my favorite 30x20 size.
* Clarification/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:
Money ###”–Set’s funds to exact number
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 True in the event of a true glitch.

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.
¥¥ With additional towns being added I am making a slight change to the moving rule. 
You have the choice of starting out on an empty lot as described above and staying there the entire challenge. 
OR The cheapest  empty apartment in San Myshuno  [City Living]. This second option will mean a move to another lot once the money is earned.
¥¥ Forgotten Hollow [Vampires GP] is also available. You can either start in the empty lot there or start say for example in New Crest and move when funds are available.
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.
Update:
Earning Money:
You can Collect, Fish, Smooze, Garden or play for tips (if skill is high enough).
Jobs:
Get to 500s 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.  Would you move in with a person living on an empty lot?
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 Spouse to your current lot. You may want to add as a Roommate via 'Ask to Move In' action first.
You can decide if they will stay or go at that point.

¥¥I am working on a way to have a Vampire founder as an option. More to come after testing.

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.

Option Restrictions:
Purchases can be made only once per week. I chose Bill Day (Usually Monday) after the bills are paid.
You have 24 hours from when the bills arrive to purchase items or remodel the lot.
That includes any build / buy purchases.
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. This is an unpredictable date so is an exception to the purchasing restrictions.

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.

I have a question regarding the empty lot.  Do you purchase a trashcan before setting funds to zero or after?  (Pondering on giving it a try)  thinkin
