Just saw the 'band-aid' rule but was already investigating Boarding School option.
Here is a guide to the different schools -> Boarding Schools at Carl's Sims 3 Guides.

I hope this hasn't already been covered (and if it is, sorry!) But the guard dog - does it have to stay on site and guard? Or can it be used to hunt?

A few more questions Haha...

- With the lot that is provided, are you supposed to mine only in certain areas?

- Do the 3 empty rooms in the bottom floor have a particular purpose, or are they just there for expansion as needed?

- And the rules state that items can be upgraded and that upgraded objects can be sold, but cannot be "downgraded" - what does that mean in this context?

Thanks!

Having played this a couple of times Whistle I think I can answer your questions. Wink
Anywhere on the lot is fair game for mining. In bad weather you can even pull the miner from your inventory and place inside. Then just choose to Mine then Put back into inventory.

They allow for expansion or you could use for mining in adverse weather.

Basically you can make them better by upgrading them or replace them with higher quality items but you cannot sell them for cheaper lower quality items.

Edit: The TV 'Never Mind the Milk Crates, Here’s the Telly' has a glitch that will not allow it to be repaired.
You can choose to use it until it breaks then replace with a better quality. Or replace with another TV of equal or greater quality /value.

Ah! Okay. I thought so, but I wasn't sure. Thought maybe if you upgraded to 'unbreakable', you couldn't change it to 'self cleaning' or something.

You can change the type of upgrade. That would not change the value. Smile

Question: Do they have to have 500K cash total AND a "legal property" each? or is it that they have to be worth over 500K and the properties can count towards that total?

I started this challenge, but I'm debating whether to post my results. I just started week 3 and I'm nearly done. I have already purchased half the town (not partners, outright purchased) and one of the sims has already accomplished the LTW (the Culinary Librarian). The other 3 aren't very far behind. (If you are wondering how ... They mined 3 tiberium, which once cut gave them an additional 4 gem dust piles, all of which grew into large crystals... There were a number of other major scores too - supernovium, several gigantic space rocks, etc.)

Anyway, I'm debating whether to carry on with this one, or start over again but instituting a "HAZMAT rule". Tiberium and Supernovium are considered "controlled" substances and are immediately confiscated by the government (i.e. selling them through the backpack in their raw state.) Might be more of a challenge that way...

I think LMFAO is on a Sim break so I will step in to try to help answer questions.

1. When the company as a whole has accumulated 100,000 for each partner (4 partners = 400,000, 5 partners = 500,000 ect.)
Plus
2. When the company as a whole own outright a local community business per partner (4 partners 4 business, 5 partners 5 businesses ect. [not including the mine]). A rule legal business cannot be less then 50,000
Simoleons in total value, two or more smaller businesses that together total 50,000 Simoleons or more do count as one rules legal business together.

Good idea to give the challenge more game play time. Sure hope you have as much fun as I did with this one. [I played it thru three times... ]

K2 has yet another "well, duh!" moment... shy I should learn to read more carefully! haha

I have been having a lot of fun playing this one. It just seemed really short given that I had the fortune to mine several chunks of tiberium in the first week (and if you cut them yourself, the gem dust "grows" just like the regular cut tiberium). The only thing holding me up is the LTW requirements now!
