I use the subway and multi-performances all the time. I just didn't know to do it with a band.

So, any tricks on getting money trees in Bridgeport? Gardening career is currently taking forever to get from level 9 to 10. I've been relatively unlucky with special seeds.

Do you have omni plant?  If yes, you can feed omni plant expensive books (or expensive deathfish), harvest the books and sell them - it will count towards your gardening career.

Sadly no, I don't. Unless there's an omni plant at the Bridgeport Science Lab, just going in to check. And it looks like there isn't :(

Get a collection helper and keep collecting special seeds, the $0 value ones are the seeds you want to keep -- I plant all the $0 value ones and throw away the deathflower plant once I see them sprouting.

Also you can sell your harvests at the consignment store, with suave seller you will get more out of your harvests.

I've had the most luck finding special seeds in and around the dome and way up the hill past the expensive homes. Do you have the Stones Throw Green House set? If not, I would recommend it, not only do plants grow much faster using the swift grow station, it also spits out random seeds, many of them special.

Do service rewards for reaching the 25k in sales for self employed careers count towards the career rewards collection requirement, provided it is in the lead up to the relevant reproduction day?

Yes they do count as career rewards collection, provided you are using it for the relevant reproduction day and not stockpiling it for the next reproduction day.

Sorry for the double post, but I just had to share the rebellion that my sims are currently attempting.

Kids 1, 2 and 3 on age up to teen on Thursday/Friday: Yay Prom is on Sunday! We're going to Prom, We're going to Prom! Watcher, find us a date we're going to prom!
Watcher: Tomorrow is Saturday, sorry kids, no prom for you three. You age up to YA tomorrow!
Kids 1, 2 and 3: Boo!!!!!! Our watcher's a meanie!
Watcher: Yes I am ... now hold still as we remove your bad moodlets with the moodlet manager, no eating, sleeping or bathrooming for you three *Cure* *Cure* *Cure*
Kids 1, 2 and 3: Our watcher's a big meanie! We won't tutor each other.
Watcher: Yes you will, I can click you to do so. *A few clicks later and Kid 1 is tutoring Kid 2*
Kid 3: Ha ha you two are doing the tutoring, I'm free as a bird! I'll play computer games.
Watcher: No you won't. You need to get your skill to level 10 ... to your skilling item *A few clicks later and Kid 3 is working on his necessary skill*
Kid 3: How rude. I will do it, but I won't like it.
Watcher: You really don't have a choice.
*King completes 2nd skill challenge, having already purchased his unique LTR and level 10 in job*'
King: Now I can settle down and watch tv
Watcher: Sorry, your majesty but you've got a best friend to make. Get out on the town!
King: But, but, but ...
*King gets in a taxi and heads somewhere. Watcher spies a likely best friend and cue's the King's friendly interactions. Meanwhile in the library, the Queen is reading Cooking Skill Books.*
Queen: You know Watcher, I've been thinking. I really should be cooking, not reading about cooking!
Watcher: No, my dear, you aren't a natural cook yet. Reading about cooking is safer at this stage, I wouldn't want you to burn down your wall, dear.
Queen: Are you ever going to build us a house, Watcher?
Watcher: Nope! You are ghosts, and you don't get sunburns. Your wall, your field with a fence around it, the 7 tents, multiple outhouses, toddler skilling objects, dining area with lots of bench space for birthday cakes and tv/radio set permanently to kid channel/station is all you need for my purposes.
Queen: You really are a meanie, did you know that.
Watcher: Yes dear, I am. Now, return to reading. You need extra levels in order to complete the menu maven skill challenge and then you need to return to your home ground and paint to get to 30 paintings. And sell them ... you are well behind your husband in both skill challenges and career this time, my dear Queen.
Queen: Don't you 'dear Queen' me, Watcher. You are a slave driver as well as a meanie!
Watcher: Thank you, yes I am.

I love being a watcher. LOL

I'm also a mean, slave driving watcher. I'd like to think I'm super-nice in real life, but most of my employees are scared of me. I think it's because I'm awesomely intimidating.

Right then, a question.

Meteor strike happened after King and Queen tried for baby for second time, but before Queen gave birth. The strike resulted in 1 enormous and 4 large space rocks. If I send King and Queen to analyse them in some order following the Queen giving birth, can they count as the third RD collection? Or does the timing of the meteor strike prevent this from happening?

If it prevents it from happening, no skin off my nose, as I'll just analyse and sell them instead :)

Analysing them after her birth is fine by me.

Thanks ... after the values of the first two RD collections (151 and 5000 respectively) that one will really pump up the value :)

The RD collection value isn't scored. What's scored is your Domination time.

I know Lisa :) I was just making a comment.

And just as another comment ... ironic to see ghosts in the ghost hunter career :)

King: Great Great Great Grand Daddy John ... Great to See Ya

John: Of course it is my ...

*Sucking noise as John gets pulled into King's Banshee Banisher*

Queen: Cousin Ioda, sorry you can't make the family reunion this year

Ioda: Why?

Queen: Because I have to remove you from these premises.

*Sucking noise as Ioda gets pulled into Queen's Banshee Banisher*

A question/comment though. Does anyone else find with the challenge 'Teacher Extraordinaire' to be incredibly powerful? King (working towards it) and oldest son (YA as well, not level 2 of magician career yet, but has completed that challenge) began tutoring second round of ghost kids at the same time. In the time that King gets one of his second batch of ghostlings almost to an A (10 hours), his eldest son has the next one of his much younger siblings at an A and is almost there with the last of them.

• The King and Queen must assemble one collection of 5 objects. Both King and Queen must each contribute at least one item to the collection, and they must keep these collections for the duration of the game. These items must be a) created, b) found, or c) given to the King and Queen as freebies/perks as part of a career or being a Celebrity. None of the 5 items can be purchased or made on the Display Table. Each Reproductive Day’s collection must be a unique item type. Qualified Item List — Criminal career objects taken home, Career reward objects (culinary career fridge, law enforcement squad car, Fox statue, etc; career rewards must be earned before the Reproduction Day they're counting towards), celebrity freebies in family inventory, wedding presents, Stolen Items by a Sim (not rabbit hole steals), time travel items, paintings, photos, elixirs, sculptures, beetles, butterflies, turtles, lizards, rodents, birds, snakes, fireflies, gems, metals, spacerocks, fish, relics, inventions, nectar, wildflowers, books, spirits, Gnomes, Lifetime Happiness Reward objects (i.e. teleporter, collection helper), skill certificates, plants, fancy festival eggs, samples from the science skill, street art, seashells, messages in a bottle, Nanites, Love Gifts, Potions (from logic skill), Moneybags (from money tree), Star dust, Dark matter, Upgraded items from handiness skill, Cooked dishes from cooking skill, Sketches from drafting table, Prism Art Studio items, Whiteboard drawings, and any harvestables from Omni Plants.

Quick question: Would sketches from the drafting table count as something seperate than sketches from the University sketchpads?

A sketch is a sketch, in my opinion, no matter where you're getting it from.

There have been two new collection types added to the list of qualifying collections for each Reproduction Day, after input from users:

Do you need to have an equal amount of residential and community lots? Or can you have more residential and miss out on your last few drones having no building/property to buy and upgrade?

No, you don't. If you have more homes than properties, then your drones are exempt from needing to buy one in order to move out.

As there are no Ops required for the challenge I wanted to have ITF installed. If my couple pursue the bot making career and the skill challenges that go with it, am I able to upgrade Simbots before kicking them out or would that be illegal?

No ops, so ITF is safer to have installed for this dynasty.

With ITF also being the one EP I don't have, I can't make the best judgment on what you can and can't do, but I can issue the blanket statement of "if it will add another being into your household, don't do it."

Ok, I can complete 2/3 challenges and gain money from selling trait chips and nanites to the bot store.
