Cheeses to make money quick and fast (Not cheats!)
« on: November 06, 2017, 05:05:58 AM »
Hello,

 I got this family in debt of around $7000 owning on bills, they have their power now turned off, and I don't want their water off, so I don't play them anymore. (And do not want to cheat because I never have)

And wondering if anyone knows of any good quick cheeses to make money fast on the current patch level.

I recalled 2 good ones. One was selling someone else's paintings at the City Living Art Gallery that were on easels. Another one was getting multiple instruments in your inventory after each busker then selling them all. Those cheeses don't seem to work anymore.

I used the wishing well, but only got $2500, and most times I fail anyway then have to wait another day.

My sims all have jobs, but they will never make this sort of money quick enough.

Having you tried collecting, painting and if the sims charisma is high enough you can "ask for loans".

Do some collecting or fishing til you've got some money, buy the cheap easel and make a club that has painting as it's activity, add an npc to the club and start club gathering.  The npc will paint for free and you can sell their paintings.  Buy as many easels as you can afford and add npc's to to the club to match and you've a money making machine.  Your sim can get on with life, even go to work and someone will still be painting on your lot.  It helps to have a wall to hang the finished paintings on until they are sold so easels are freed up for more paintings.

If you are really desperate and don't mind some soul destroying play, have your sim take hundreds of photo's on their phone.  You can set up 7 'take photo' actions in the queue and each 'take photo' will get you 5 pictures. The game pauses when your sim takes a photo so little time passes for them.  It doesn't matter what they take the photo of, a picture of the tabletop will sell for as much as a picture of flowers.  Photo worth is based on mood (very inspired is best) and level of photography skill, which levels really quickly to its max of 5.  Be aware that doing this will also fill you screenshot folder with photo's of whatever you are taking so you will probably want to empty it through windows explorer when you have finished playing sims.  The few times I used this it literally netted me hundreds of simoleans in half a sim hour but it took a couple of hours real time and I had hundreds of photos of the table in screenshots.

I didn't realize you could sell photos. I wish you could make paintings of them.


You can have wealthier Sims put paintings on your poor Sim's walls, for your Sim to sell.
If you save them to your gallery, you can even sell them again.

I seem to remember that you could paint your sims and stuff. (Maybe i'm wrong and it was Sims 3...Pretty sure it was 4 though)
I used to have a sim who's career was painting and she took a pic like photography, and THAT was the painting she worked on.
Correct me if i'm wrong. :)
As for money painting works really well, collecting stuff is slow but steady, and if your sim is a kleptomaniac you can steal and sell the stuff? lol (Did that on one of my klepto sims for awhile and made some decent money although some friendships took a hit)

You can use "Paint From Reference".

Breeding two frogs together can net you some money if you have multiple sims in one household as the cool down between breeding times is tied to the sim not the frog. So you can pass the same two frogs from family member to family member breeding them each time. You really need the rare frogs worth $160, $120 or $100 for this to be really useful. The good thing about this is the player can do this while the sims are busy making money other ways.

Ahh thank you for those tips! I am going to first try the painting club trick, and catch I got to spend money to make money (For the Easels), but wow $20,000 for any single sim to move in?  If this fails, I think Ill try that!

But then you have the issue with an extra Sim in your household. How to deal with that? lol

Well... You could always move them out :-) or, (and I'm not saying this is my favourite choice *makes sure halo is in place* but), you could also just kill them off.

Perhaps, guide all available Sims, through the "Master Painter" aspiration, or whatever is is called. Masterpieces seem to get pretty good money. ASAP, get them the Marketable trait. Maybe, get the "Paint Masterpieces" trait. Often it seems that painting from reference will get you a Masterpiece. For me, at least, it seems to happen more often & at lower skill levels. Mileage may vary. Crafting instruments seems to pay well, too. If you add another Sim, get the $20,000 dollars, you should have enough to buy an easel, build up the paint skill & eat for a while. In this way, the new member may be able to pay for him/herself, eventually.

Just a thought.
