Oh my gosh! I never knew you could actually visit an Alien world in the science career! Surprised I haven't ventured or even attempted that one yet as I'm still having soooo much fun with my gal who is in the doctor's career (and she is a tad shy of advancing to an RN!!) and my guy who is in the Detective career - he is at level 4(?) I think? scratch giggle

I went over this entire thread and it looks like I have some reading to do on this EP - thanks EQ for sharing those links!

I had one of my sims abducted (actually the one who did is the one who is the doctor's career) but she didn't get pregnant. So no alien sim babies for my sims. Sad They look so darn cute!

Fantastic game play and screenshots everyone! cheers thumbs up applause

With the addition of GTW I have been having great fun exploring all the new possibilities.

I did not notice until after GTW came out but the option to delete or get a Mailbox must have been added in the last patch. I posted in the Patch notes thread but also wanted to share here.

Does it remind anyone else of To Serve Man (The Twilight Zone)

The task list said to take more pictures and I could not figure out what else to look for.
I accidentally clicked the ground and chose the Search for Clues option.
I was quite surprised to see what popped up.

It took me until my guy reached level 2 of the Detective career before I discovered the "Search for clues" on the ground. scratch Laughing

I brought one of my sims out of my library and plopped her down in Willow Creek and then proceeded to make my own retail shop. Oy vey I do not know what I started. Laughing Her first day on the job and I wanted to Mad my own hair out! Ha HA I hired a helper on the second day and within a sim hour or two I had to have her berate him on his performance! He just isn't going to work out I think. No But I have made a little bit of a profit, which is a good thing but I need to keep better attention to the time she spends with the store open. 13 sim hours to be a work is a bit much. afraid 2

The KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) may be best when it comes to retail.
I am still not sold on the retail aspect for me.
We would be bald together. Smile

I need to upload my bakery story pics soon. I agree with EQ regarding the Retail side of the expansion pack. It is definitely better to start simple. And small. I see these amazing monoliths of shops that simmers are putting on the gallery. And though I want them ALL, I know it is not reasonable. Especially if you don't want irate customers and want to actually make a profit.

Also, if it's your first foray into Retail, it is best to start small just so you can get used to all that you can do. It's a fast learning curve. And acquiring Perk Points is essential because the Retail Rewards will help your business (and the patience of your customers) so much.

But I do love it. It is very challenging and there is a lot of strategy involved. You really have to weigh the pros and cons of things you want to do just like in an IRL business. :-)

======
I'm currently playing my second Rosebud Challenge, and one of my Sims is going through the Doctor career. I think he's an RN right now, and when I travel with him to work, I am a complete disaster with diagnosing the patients. Lol. They get tougher to diagnose the further along you're up the ladder.

I have found a nice strategy when it comes to promotions in the active careers. I send them to work alone, focused and with full needs bars, and then after a few days when their work performance bar is almost filled, that's when I travel with them to work. If I don't screw anything up too bad and complete the needed goals, they get promoted! (I would travel with them everyday, but they have a family now plus a large garden, so I have to spend my time with the others.)

Unfortunately, my doctor gets a full performance bar and then I go to work with him and misdiagnose his patients. I'm on a losing streak right now. lol! But I'll get better. I found this wonderful guide online that tells you the symptoms of all the illnesses, so hopefully that'll help me treat them better!

http://sims-online.com/sims-4-doctor-career-guide-active/

I have realized that I need to pay more attention to the patients' actions while I am examining them. That should have been a no-brainer, but oh well! :-)

I have started out with a small shop, just a few things but I'm getting so many NPC's and some of my game play characters coming in the place gets rather crowded real quick. I thought that if I had hired an NPC that actually had a good sales skill they would actually work and help with making sales, wrong, all the guy thinks about is doughnuts! Head Desk So instead I had my gal take a day off from the store and mingle about the town and she happened to snag a young unsus...um I mean a nice young man. They hit it off immediately, and he has moved in. He's gone to work with her and the sales with just her and her live in boyfriend have gone through the roof! But it is still very easy to loose track of time when your working customers and trying to hone in that sale. My perk points the last time I checked were above 400 I think. I should look into using up some of them on things that will benefit my little boutique. I'm a veteran retail person myself in RL, so I know a thing or two about running a business and managing one, I'm putting some of those skills acquired along the way to use in my game.

RE: GeoCouncil Bug
If you own GTW there is a work around I would like to suggest.
Get the Analyzer from the Build/Buy catalog.
You can 'Practice Analyzing' even without anything in your inventory. This will increase Logic and have a chance of discovering Elements.

Yes, I definitely think having other Sims in your HH that you can control would make running the store a lot easier.
And in my opinion, the best perks to get with your points is the Faster Checkouts and Restock ones. I'm working on getting more points to procure the Serious Shopper reward now that I have gotten the others.

You're welcome! The guide of symptoms helped, but they are not an exact science. And sometimes you have to take a patient through all of the tests to finally compel a diagnosis.

I have noticed that for the Llama Flu they don't always have spots, which the list suggests, and sometimes images of a thermometer or pills alongside a medicine bottle will pop up in the patients' thought bubbles. Those translated to Llama Flu for me.

But thanks to me paying more attention to the patients' actions while my doctor was examining them along with running all the tests, I successfully diagnosed two patients (FINALLY) and got the promotion I had been gunning after for awhile! Big Grin
