No, the best way to get money guitar playing is not just the park or anything like that. Have you guys seen the protests they have at the city hall? There is usually like 20 people there. Go there with over 1000 performances and lvl 10 guitar skill and all that stuff and earn 87,491 per hour. Plus it is by far the best way to earn the celebrity challenge.

This sounds almost like a cheat.  :D

It's hard to top $31K per HOUR, but my gardeners always make more money than any other Sim.  In a legacy attempt I got bored of, I had a grove of money trees that yielded about $44K a day.

Yes, some Special seeds grow into trees that grow money bags.

Or you can use cheats to get some but you need a gardener in the first place.

When you first harvest the money trees, you get a smaller amount and as the money trees go up in quality, you receive more.  I am not sure how many trees I had, but I was raking in 62,000 everytime I would harvest and you figure about every two or three days, so that is alot in a week just to harvest trees.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Of course that's a lot of money... but I like the challenge to be poor and work in a regular profession.

It varies depending on the quality of the tree.  Some have up to $1,100 or possibly more in them.  The first few you get with a normal quality tree are more in the $100-$500 range.

Edited to add: plus, like other kinds of produce, each tree gives you 4-5 bags.

The sole income a band makes is gig opportunities. That money is peanuts compared to tip playing in subways. If you're willing to invest the time to boost the performance number in a instrument's skill journal you could feasibly make 1+ million a day. The sky is the limit depending on that performance number.

Best way to check is to get to level 5 in the instrument (or whatever level you can perform a song at on the 360). Buy a song, learn it, start to perform it and cancel at the correct time. Check your performance log before and after to see if it gives you credit for performing the song. I wouldn't test the playing for tips until you get at least 100 songs performed, though.

50,000 = motherlode

1,000 = kaching

Add Family Funds: familyfunds + (type familyname) + (type amount of Simoleons). This cheat will add the amount of Simoleons you entered to the Sims family you entered.

I've found an average ratio of the amount of performances to the amount of tips. (Based off of Metro stats)
1:25 is the average of the three.
So if you've only done say 240 and want to know the amount of tips- it would be (1*240)=240:(25*240)=6000---240 performances:$6000/hr.
Isn't that the right math...?

Just a question about the start of the thread; are the people (Da vinchi and wildredchild) still doing writing and gardening money checks?

No. I would basically completely ignore the first post's info since it is so old. Even my own information with painting and guitar I've surpassed with other characters.
