Everything's Coming Up Roses for twins Flora and Greg.
They have moved into Willow Springs to begin their quest to complete the Rosebud Challenge and become the communities first Sim-Millionaire household.
Their goal is to Gain 1,000,000 Simoleons in a single household.
The very first Sims I created using the Sims 4 CAS Demo were Flora & Greg Rose.
Flora - Knowledge /Nerd Brain Traits Quick Learner, Self Assured, Bro and Neat.
Greg - Love /Soul Mate Traits Alluring, Music Lover, Creative and Family Oriented.


They look so happy to be moving into a new place.



Starting move-in funds $20,000 - Money Magic!

Our heroes appear a bit stunned upon their arrival.



Then they just decide to have a good laugh over the whole thing.


Guess that's why Bargain Bend is such a bargain.... NOTHING is included.

Whoa ..... do you think there are pickpockets around here?
I was sure we had some money when we got here.


Best get started finding things to sell. We are going to get hungry and tired pretty quick with no food and no place to sleep.
Greg found a fishing spot nearby and caught a couple of fish but with no way to cook them he sold them for a few Simoleons.
Rose dug out a few frogs and found some minerals to sell. She also found a couple of funny little statues. They made her smile so she kept them for later. They had a grand total of 80S between then before deciding to find someplace to get some food.
The local lounge had free chips and though not very filling they did quiet the loud rumbling of their stomachs. Greg tried his hand at tending bar. How hard could it be? Harder than it looks and not very profitable. Flora introduced herself to a few of the locals and Greg joined in for some fun before they both became so tired they could barely move.
A park bench was better than the ground but not by much. They both got some sleep but were sore afterwards.

They grabbed a quick shower at the Gym and met a few more people which is how they found out about the big park in town.
While they were hoping to join in on a picnic Greg took things in his own hands and spent some of their meager earnings on some hot dogs for the grill.

Best darn thing they had eaten on days.


They socialized a bit with some random folks at the park before another park bench nap and a quick splash bath at the sink.
Then off to the gym to meet more people and grab a nice hot shower. Maybe soon their networking will pay off and they will find a job. A couple of nice beds would be great and so would a fridge and a toilet.

Laughing

Great start! That will be quite a challenge. My family is generation 3 as kids and they now have 48,928 (just checked) with the 4 adults working. It will be a challenge as $ is much harder to make than in 3, for sure.

Thought she looked perfectly peeved.
I might borrow a few tips from your story. 
They are only at the 1st Tuesday and money is tight.

Yes, making $ is hard/slower in 4 than 3 and the bills are much higher. eeek

That (difficult making money) is why I am thinking more than one generation. Smile
No scoring in this version but considering a Bonus Goal for meeting Aspirations?

Wow! What a challenge!

Greg will get "that look" a few times in the future. Especially, when the first bills come in.
I wonder what happens, if you don't have any power to be shut down, lol.
And I wonder if the bills will add up, if you don#t pay them.
But you're good with this game, I guess I won't find out through you Laughing

I'll be following from my secret hiding place here in the 'old world'.

Graham said he fought to make the game a challenge and he did. My guess is that a million cannot be made in one generation, and maybe not in quite a few. It will be interesting to see what happens. Smile

FINALLY ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Between the two of them they have 500s in their account.
Greg has the Soulmate aspiration and needs to have 10 Successful kisses and go on two dates.
The first date was Gold level in spite of the fact he was dead tired and passed out at the end.


That was a lot of work but this is no way to end a date! Laughing

I thought it was priceless! And his date is just looking at him like nothing happened.
It took from move-in day (Sunday?) until Thursday to get this far. I was busy trying to keep them from dying from hunger or sleep deprivation. GetBusy
They did some collecting and networking with the neighbors. They have been napping at the park(s) or the library. The gyms were used for showers and toileting needs.
They both signed up for jobs since the 500Simoleon mark was met. Greg signed up for Tech Guru ($31/hr) and Flora signed up for Astronaut ($26/hr).  Notice his job starts in 2 days and her job starts in 4 days.
In game it is Friday and bills usually come on Monday or Tuesday.

They have basic shelter but not enough to meet the housing requirements. Their 'hut' was built using the Zero Simoleon flat square and a roof which is also free. That gives them a real floor (Cost Zero) and shelter (Roof piece cost Zero).
Add a door and viola .. a sort of house. Not really enough for furniture so I put in a toilet and a sofa. Two can nap on a sofa with one seated and the other reclined.  Lot value was initially 2,000 and the doorway, toilet and sofa were 750s.

Interior

Lets hope the bills can be met as they only have 133s left.

Well the first bills were only 54s ... what a relief!
Greg is still struggling with his first goals because he is too tired or hungry or uncomfortable to be social enough for dating.
He was actually on his second date and left to go to work. He is level 2 Tech Guru and needs to use a computer daily. Plus he needs 4 hours practicing Programming to advance. Hard to do with no computer. By the time he gets to the library he is too tired to work.
Flora made level 3 Astronaut / Technician. Her daily task is to work out. Good luck with that... Sleep
There are a couple of objects earned (and kept) to promote the Energized mood. They do not make a Sim less tired just more energized. hmm
Flora finally got to be good enough friends ... with a little romantic action on the side ... to add a roommate.
Gavin Richards is a YA with 7 days til becoming an Adult.  That makes him the same age as Flora and Greg.
high five
He is an aspiring Best Selling Author with Traits Muser, Bro, Creative and Neat.
Notice how Gavin came from the Roomies household that has 3 other Sims? What that means is since he is not the last person in the household he comes with ZERO Simoleons.

Lucky - Not so lucky on the second roommate.
Brittni Bliss Adult with 7 days til Elder. Musical Genius Traits Muser, Loves Outdoors, Bro and Self-Assured.
The good part is she was a single person household and brought in $19,998 into the household!
The other Not so Lucky part was I totally did not read the directions when placing a house on the lot.
For some reason I was thinking the things already on the lot would go into family inventory.
That was for ROOMS and NOT when you place a whole lot!
 Head Desk
I lost the few plants along with the career rewards and Flora's punching bag.
Falls under the category ... "If all else fails .... "

Great story.
I didn't know that you would loose everything on the lot while replacing the house either. Good to know!

I still try to figure out, how to move the entire house withon the lot. Do you have to do it room by room?


Back to Rosebud: I'd like to see some babies Smile Flora and Gavin would have cute children. (hint ...hint) Wink

In build click in the cross with the 4 directions and then you can drag the building wherever wanted as long as in bounds.
