PostSubject: Starting at the bottom, hopefully getting to the top: Rosebud Challenge    Wed Dec 17, 2014 11:56 pm

This is actually the first challenge I've ever done (at least the first one I've stuck with this long). So let me introduce you to Katlyn and Timothy who look really terrified and confused in this picture. Also excuse the underwear, they really don't care what they show off to the world tbh.

Katlyn and Timothy both have the fabulously wealthy aspiration, so they're both business savvy. Timothy is also a genius, creative, and a geek. Katlyn is outgoing, ambitious, and materialistic. Once they got over the awful time of having less than $500 they went to the library to get jobs. Katlyn decided she wanted to go into business, while Timothy decided he wants to be a tech guru. Their first day of work went horribly. They both came home with red plumbobs and Katlyn didn't want to do anything but sleep.

But a few days later and ta-da! Timothy gets a promotion! They celebrated by buying a shower, a stove and a counter! They're really living the life of luxury now.

After that and some relationship building, Timothy decided to propose! Of course while they were in their underwear. I mean is there really any other way to do it?

Katlyn comes home with a promotion a couple sim days later and now we have $500 saved! And we're about 8,000 into our goal. If only we had enough to build some walls...

Alright back to Katlyn and Timothy. As soon as I started playing with them after my last update, tragedy struck when Katlyn set fire to the oven.

But luckily it was not fatal (except to their bank account because of course insurance didn't cover it all).
After all the commotion of the fire, they decided to relax at the lounge in Oasis Springs, where Katlyn surprised Timothy by wanting to elope immediately.

When they came back to the lot they were shocked to see that a house had been built! They now have their very own box with walls and everything!

Having an actual structure on their lot got Katlyn thinking about starting a family. Timothy thought it wasn't good timing since they have so little money, but a few days later Katlyn woke up and found out she was eating for 2. Apparently it was meant to be.

Then their new stove broke and pregnant Katlyn fixed it while not pregnant Timothy watched her and ate lunch. How rude.

Katlyn finally gives birth and it's a healthy baby boy!

And then what's this? TWINS? She had 2 healthy baby boys! (The picture was lost scratch )
Now, Katlyn and Timothy are about $15,000 into their goal Big Grin

What luck...the stove catches fire right off. Boo!
And then TWINS! Now you have a real challenge on your hands.

Had to laugh at the "not pregnant Timothy" calmly watching his pregnant wife fix the stove.

Something I noticed that changed in the last few days as I have not played. When I was playing before, it didn't matter if I spent the money they had earned on their house, it still showed in the achievement for rosebud. But, when I looked today it only showed the amount they actually had in their reserve which is much less than what I've actually earned with them. Did this actually change or am I just now noticing it? No

It is awful! Before I had about 15,000 towards rosebud and now since I only have about 400 in the reserve (of course spending it on their house) that's what it shows for the achievement! So frustrating. Mad

Hmmmmmmmm...that is frustrating. I haven't noticed a difference since patching in my rosebud total.

Are you using any kind of Mods at all?
My current save (started after the patch) shows their cash on hand plus the value of the house.
You are looking under Wealth and Collecting Achievements?

Edit: I checked another save started before the December patch and it also shows the correct amount.
Mind you I was having other issues that were fixed by using the Repair option in Origin.

Marykate .... I don't think it's related to the patch. That has happened to me during my game, and I haven't played since the patch installed. I don't know how to explain it .. it seems like when I zoomed out and clicked on the house and checked my achievement level, it gave me the value that included the house and everything.... then when I checked it from within the house, the amount didn't include the value of the house .... confusing Mad

Well, whatever happened is back to normal and I'm back to $15,897/1,000,000. I'm very glad because that little mishap made me want to stop the challenge lol. But yay we're back and an update is coming soon, lots has happened! Thanks for all the feedback on your guys' games Smile

Finally we're back to the Padilla rosebud challenge. Katlyn was having a very hard time at work after the twins aged up to children, so she was demoted and very embarrassed since she's an ambitious sim. (I'm not quite sure what made her performance go down, I hadn't done anything different and she was very well cared for and in a good mood at work most of the time).

After she was demoted, she decided to work extra hard and actually do those daily tasks (maybe that's why she was demoted in the first place). So the whole family made their way to the library to both Timothy and Katlyn could use the computers.

After all the 'fun' at the library, they decided to take the kids to the park to blow off some steam. Katlyn got especially into it...

A couple of days later and you can see a tiny bump! Katlyn's eating for two again!

During the second pregnancy, they finally saved enough money to get a computer! No more going to the library for their daily tasks.

A very pregnant Katlyn stretching after a long, hard day.

Jimmy and his father have become such good friends.

And finally we have.....a girl!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? TWINS, AGAIN??????

Now we have a very full house. Here's the update of the what it looks like.

Here's Eileen as a child

And Ericka

Aren't they cute? Funny they have almost the same exact faces as their brothers.
They're making very slow progress with the money. So far they only have 17,384. Hopefully it'll go faster soon.
