Who much does the time machine cost at the consignment store? After you buy it can you travel in time just once or multiple times? Are the collectibles that you bring back worth anything and able to be sold? If so, an unorthodox way to making money is buy a time machine, travel through time a bunch, and sell the collectibles. That would be a fun way to make money.
The answers to your questions (in order) are;

It varies, but around $1000.
Multiple Times.
Yes and yes.

Thanks. I'm going to try to make a sim that buys a time machine as soon as they can and have no income other than what they get from their time traveling.

I guess they just take the same sim who was using the Time Machine and make them a child. Not sure if this has been mentioned before but I just wanted to mention it.  :)

I've had sim children who very closely resembled the person using the time machine, but I've also had children come out who looked almost nothing like their parent.  However, I don't think I've ever had an exact duplicate produced as the result of time travel lol.

Is coming back with kids frequent? I never used the time machine before buying one in this game. Not sure I want a bunch of kids from it.

Out of about 30 tries I got only 1 kid so I don't think you'll be getting a whole lot.  :)

Yes, it is. I think it works the same way as the Clone Voucher (sp?) award that came with Generations.

My sim got two kids, the first time it was herself. (She was her own mother, messed up dude.) The second time she got a boy but that was from the future. I assumed he was her child.  ??? And it did say 'mother' on the his relationship tab.

Has anyone sent a vampirer in the machine to see if they return with a vampire kid?

I haven't actually tried it, but based on what I remember from some code diving a while back I'd say that it is pretty much guaranteed that if a Vamp gets the result the kid will be a Vamp.

Around the time I was training Max Skills Max had to travel a few times back and forth to test and try his Masterly Time Machine. Perhaps I had bought him the Vertilize Threadment LTP already because the only time he stopped bringing back lost kids from yesterday or tomorrow was after number 7 had joyned his household.

The Time Machine is so awesome! I had my two sims try for a baby in the time machine and nobody appeared so I thought that perhaps it didn't work.. The 'baby' (a young adult female) arrived two sim weeks later! :o Where was she, all that time? Haha.

Guess she was lost in the time warp! At least you missed the diaper stage!

Did she come out by herself or you had to go and get her?

She just appeared one morning. I don't know how long she was there, I was zoomed in on her Mum at the time and then when her Mum walked into the same room as her a little notice came up that said something like 'Mum, Dad! I'm home! This is way better than that cave you left me in!' I found it quite funny. :D

I have got to try that! Did you go to the past of future. I'd hate to have a granny come back saying she was my kid.

My sims had tried for a baby in the past, and she came out as a young adult. :)

Just tried it, but the child is a teen who arrived hours later.

I can't view your pictures, MoMoll, because you attach them as a file, I think. :( Do you know the gallery? You can sign up there and within hours, maximum a day, you will get a PM here from a mod telling you that your account has been activated at the gallery, then you can upload and attach your sims pictures here, or anywhere on the forum.

Strange fez because I can see them and apparently so can DanBrunetu.

@Dan, she is the spitting image of her mother.

Where was she all that time? Well it could be she didn't even wait to leave but traveled straight ahead two weeks more into the future than her parents did, for some reason. That made that you had to wait for her, while she arrived instantly, in her perspective.

I agreed.

Randomly, depending on the age of the sim.
