This is Silvia Huggins. She has graciously accepted the challenge to become an eco aware sim in the Eco-Existance challenge started by EQ. To see how Silvia's first few days went, you can see them here and read all about the Eco-Existance challenge.



I will be starting out this story on Day 4.

Day 4 Silvia started out with 1300 simoleons in her household funds.

Her skills are as follows:

Fishing: Lvl 4
Gardening: Lvl 2
Cooking: Lvl 2

(sorry forgot to get pic's for day 4 Sad )

Day 5:

The days funds started out at 1300 simoleons,

Today Silvia spent her day tending to her garden and she learned how to evolve her plants. She did a small painting and then sold it to the collector, she went frog hunting and had a yard sale. Ending the day with earning 150 simoleons, making her households funds for day 5 - 1450 simoleons.


Day 6:

Silvia is now at level 3 in her gardening skill. Today she spent weeding her garden, evolving more plants, hunting for more frogs (to use as bait for fishing or to sell in the yard sale) and fishing (to use as fertilizer in her little garden). She also spent some digging where she found 3 more sim statues (those seem to sell well in her yard sales.) and tidying up her camping area.  



Days 6 stared with 1450 in household funds and ended with 1450 in household funds. Time to get cracking on earning more money Silvia!
She also entered in phase 2 of her aspiration.

Looking good! thumbs up

I never used one of those yard sale tables. Do they work like a shop? Can your sim set prices and influence the customers?

The Murkland Challenge was my first experience using the sale table. They act similar to retail shops but the shop interactions to influence etc are not used. You stock the table then tend it. After you start to tend the table you can select to start a Yard Sale.
Using the option to set prices at 300% works quite well for a nice profit.

Great Start! I love that table, and the wall table for paintings. Best thing about those are that anytime your start a sale the sim's show up, even 3 a.m.! Oh...and the 300% mark up is Fantastic!

I totally agree with EQ and Buttons on the yard sale table. No matter what time of day I set it up (and I leave it set up just add from the inventory when needed) and have it marked up to 300%. So far I've only had one sim who has walked away and not bought anything, most times I will get the same sims who have bought come back and buy again even in the same night.

I'm glad you are enjoying reading up on all progress with these challenges, Gram! Heart But I'm not sure who is having the challenge, the player or the Sim! giggle

Got a few day's to get caught up here.

Day 7:

Pretty much the same routine, but before I continue, when I left Silvia Day 6 was not quite over yet. She finished day 6 with 2,245 in her household funds, after she did a painting and got 117 for it from the collector and she sold 23 snapdragons, 10 Lily's and 68 basil for a grand total of an extra 508 simoleons. Ok. So now that that is settled onto Day 7!


Get up eat a everyone's favorite breakfast, veggie dog! Laughing Then it was off to the garden to water, weed, harvest and more evolving. Then fishing was in order and she reached level 5 in fishing, but she didn't stop there...she gain a skill in cooking and in comedy. She also hunted for more frogs and sat down by the rivers edge and watched the ducks(?) while eating, you guessed it, a veggie dog!


Silvia also had another yard sale but I forgot to take a picture!  Head Desk
At day's end Silvia had 2,507 in household funds.

Day 8:

Today Silvia got hit with a big surprise...BILLS! I FORGOT TO TURN OFF BILLS! Head Desk Mad So right off the top came 284 simoleons. So to make up for some of that she sold: 8 pears, 58 onions, 21 apples, 58 strawberries, 38 basil, 10 snapdragons and 11 Lily's. Giving her a grand total of 703 simoleons to put back into the household funds.

Then it was off to garden and dig and because she found 4 more chests each containing a little sim statue, she was able to replenish her yard sale table and grab on some more dough.

Bringing day 8's total to: 3,036

Day 9:

Because Silvia gained another handiness skill when she fixed the broken toilet on day 7, she is now able to sculpt furniture so 15 simoleons off the top of today to sculpt a garden pot in which she got the 15 back and another 15 on top by selling that pot for 30 simoleons.  A lovely person stopped by and used her painting easel and painted a picture in which Silvia was able to sell for 93 simoleons and after more gardening, fishing and yard selling Silvia now at a total household funds of 3,339.


And she also gained another skill point in gardening so she is in phase 3 of the botonist aspiration

Day 10:

Yup, more gardening and yard selling today. Then she chatted up another visitor who took to using her easel and left her a painting to sell.


Day 10's total household funds...3,898

I'm afraid with the little bit of earnings Silvia is getting each day between selling fruits and flowers and yard sales, she isn't going to hit the 50K simoleons before she turns elder! giggle but I'm going to keep plugging along and see how far I can get her.

Good going.


Putting up things for sale you have to keep in mind that they add to lot value, which determines the amount on your bills Wink .

Actually Forrest lives on selling dragonfruit. He has 8 perfect plants in planters and gets 10 fruits a week off one plant . 80 perfect dragonfruit sell for 6.400 simoleons

You get dragonfruits from grafting strawberry and snapdragon.

I haven't...or I should say Silvia hasn't reached the level to where she can graft yet but she's almost there!

Maybe Silvia should inventory what's left on her yard sale table and the table. Thanks for the tip LP! BlowingKiss

Okay, just a quick run through on Silvia.

She is on phase 3 of the botonist aspiration and is now on level 8 in her gardening skill.


I got so into her daily routine that I completely spaced getting any screenshots relating to daily activities. But you get the jist of her daily routine. Get up - eat a veggie dog- pee- shower- garden - chat if anyone is near - fish - dig - hunt for frogs - eat again (veggie dog) - bathroom break - bed. Get up and do it again and again and again and again. Laughing

On the bright side she has been harvesting her little tail off and she has grafted several different things. Strawberry and dragonfruit, lily and dragonfruit, onion and basil, then I had her graft the combo of strawberry and dragonfruit with another strawberry. In phase 3 she had gotten a cow plant seed while fishing so she planted that and was able to complete the grow a cow plant, but then it died...so sad...she was also able to get evolve 10 excellent plants. Man that was a lot of fertilizing! Now she just has to get through 2 more levels and phase one will be complete! WOO!

Haven't decided if I will continue on with stage 2 yet or not.

Oh and lordy those veggie dogs go straight to the hips! ROFL

As I was playing her yesterday, I started to notice that she was getting a little...ahem...thick, especially in the hip area. I thought good lord girl, when this challenge is over you are going straight to the gym and it'll be salads from here on out! ROFL

But! Maybe not! There is this male sim....and he kinda likes my girl.

This is Cameron. He likes to paint and fish. He and Silvia are good friends but I think he wants to take things to the next level as he keeps asking her out on dates, invites her to every festival that comes to town and he's tried flirting with her. All of which she can't do right now!  Crying or Very sad

LOL....it's like the game triggers if they don't exercise. My Murkland sim ate almost all salads (rummaged) and poof, she gained a bunch of weight. Suspect Wow...Cameron is a snappy dresser. Love the shirt!

So much progress made with Silvia, then issues popped up with my graphics card, and in the midst of figuring out what was going on with that and uninstalling The Sims 4 by mistake! Ugh Mad Head Desk and it all lead to I lost it all!!!!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
All my saves poof gone. I thought I had pulled my files out but that would be a big fat nope! No

I do believe Silvia is in my library so I might just start this all over again with her or maybe another sim. I'm so undecided at this point. Laughing

I just don't even want to think about what would happen if I lost everything on my computer. I do hope that you're able to do the challenge again. Looking forward to seeing your next adventure

I searched all over my computer in every freakin file I could find and my flash drive. Then I made my hubby sit down and look through all of them too! He was like "I don't even know what I'm looking for!" I told him "anything that says Sims 4 SAVES!" Laughing After he got done he said he couldn't find any and to never, ever ask him to do that again. Laughing Laughing
