haha to true EQ Smile

@BG the mining spots are up on the hill above the main mine living area, not the ones behind the office shed, the office shed spots are for parking the miner machines. (just thought I would add this to be clear Smile

That looks great thumbs up Smile, I'm just heading off to bed soonish, I wont get much done on the Sims over the weekend myself but am looking forward to seeing the stories develop on your and BG's pages.

I have been trying to remember to take screen shot when I do play but I get involved and forget lol (may have to dig up character memories)

I can't help myself.
I need to take a break from CAW and try this one out

My-oh-my... what at fantastic lot you created.
This is going to be fun.. Horsey


EDIT: This is quite a new way of playing for me... very challenging
Normally I just sit back and let my Sims take charge. But here I am trying to follow the layout of the challenge ... and phew.. I have a lot to take care of with these 4 sims and the dog .. Ha HA

The first day I played them they were all sooo tired in the evening they went straight to bed on their own though Laughing

The site Carl's The Sims 3 Guide is a great go-to guide for all sorts of information.
The sections on Gems and Gem Cuts in All Expansions up to Supernatural and Collecting Metal Ore Sims can Smelt
can provide helpful info for the Miner Challenge.

Are you using a mod for the Consignment store? I don't have the option to sell the items from the mine. I could only sell a painting and a book that Jane wrote.

Btw, I've added this challenge to the challenge index. Oh also having fun with this, but have to admit it is challenging.

Hope you enjoy the challenge MW, you need to sell gems and ingredients at the elixir consignment store (Supernatural rabbit hole) I will add this to the challenge sheet. Otherwise you will need to sell the gems and such through your inventory or buy mode. Inventions and such are still sold at the consignment store, If you don't have Supernatural you could try using NRaas consigner mod just be sure to read the page and double check your game version to the mod version. (haven't checked if it is up to date with current patch). Smile

What about using the Chinese incense burner from buydebug for increasing skill levels. Without traveling to China to get it? Btw, can they travel?

You can use the incense burner but you have to travel to China to get it. Your Sims can take holidays (this will reduce you household funds a fair bit) same as a normal career in the game. No buydebug as it is a console command (form of cheat). Only console commands like resetsim and things that fix game lag or stuck Sims and issues like that. If you use buydebug for building you can only buy decorative objects, no statistic enhancing objects, so you can't buy the martial arts training dummy or the motive mobile but you can buy oil barrels, set dressings and such.

Thank you very much. I have used NRaas mods before. He is very up to date. I have Supernatural, so I will sell at the Elixir store.

FYI: The Elixer Shop is a good place to consign.
Just had Sim cut Tiberium in spire cut on the Gem Cutter machine.
Placed that and the resulting Gem Dust side by side. The Tiberium gem dust sprouted into a spire cut Tiberium piece.
NO Mods used - took both the Elixer Shop to consign.
1. Cut value $37,122 / Consigned value $63,107
2. Cut value $35,742 / Consigned value $60,761
Another point ... heart shaped cuts are available sooner using the Gem Cutter than when sending gems to be cut by mailbox. This cut greatly increases the value of the gems.

Holy Cow! I didn't think about consigning the tiberium....what the heck is the matter with me???? Guess I was mesmerized by all that glittering green and the simoleons. Out Cold

Heart-shaped cuts you say....I have a pink diamond sitting in Bill's inventory. hmm

That's great info especially with no mods Smile I was concerned the income goals might be to high but it sounds like they may be just right, just let me know if they might need to be increased keeping in mind fun value as well it might be a challenge but who wants to play something that is tedious and over extended Smile

lol BG I had no idea about the Tiberium either, every time I dug it up I got rid of it in consignment right away.

You might want to stash that Heart-shaped pink diamond and some palladium away for the inventor.
Then when he has the opportunity to create a Big Invention (Simbot) he will be ready.

I could have double my money by selling that tiberium at the shop.

Hehehehehe....Great minds think alike.....I was already getting ready to hoard away the pink diamond but I forgot about the palladium. Thanks for reminding me

Simbot tip:
http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/ambitions/simbot.php
Quote :
Inventors can craft them once they've reached the tenth level and completed the
associated Ultimate Invention opportunity chain. If you have trouble getting this to come up make sure your skill
opportunity slot is open. You'll have to come up with 1 palladium, 10 life fruit, 1 heart-cut pink diamond, and 100 scrap in order to make one.
