I don't remember getting any money from rocket ship missions that I completed. I also think if I had and it was a large amount I would have noticed the increase in funds.

EDIT: Just did some testing and of the missions I know I did I didn't get any money reward just a collectable if I got lucky.

That makes me feel a little more secure. :)

My Sims complete collections pretty frequently and I don't think I've ever gotten cash. In another file today, my Sim completed the fossil collection and received no cash.

Okay, I've absolutely no idea if this works, but can folks watch this short video of me getting cash for completing a collection? Sorry that the quality's so poor - I've never used the built-in recording function, so I imagine there's a setting to change the resolution that I totally missed...

(I started a brand-new game and used debug to get the items required - this was just the first collection I found all the items for and was not deliberately chosen)

Okay, I was just able to reproduce this in my game. That has to have changed since Eco Lifestyle. Bizarre.

On the one hand, I'm super glad to hear that someone else has seen this happen because it means I'm not going crazy... but on the other, it creates a bit of an awkward situation with regards to this challenge! It wouldn't surprise me if it had been a post-Eco Lifestyle change, along with the incredibly broken environment system and at least one other annoying thing that I found out earlier on in testing... so, uh, profound apologies to you Lena - there was nothing wrong with your rules, and then the game had to go and change on you!

Just tested this myself and got the following results, bear in mind I only have base game and didn't myself complete all of these in my challenge, I also haven't done fishing yet but I'm guessing it will be similar to gardening.

Anyway these are the amounts I got for completing collections via debug.

Frogs + 500
My Sims + 100
Metals + 100
Crystals + 100
Elements + 100
Postcards + 100
Fossils + 100
Microscope Prints + 100
Space Prints + 100
Aliens + 100
Space Rocks + 100
Eggs + 100
Skulls + 100
Plushies + 150
Posters + 500
Gardening + 500

But here is the real kicker Magic Beans + 5000

Assuming for now fishing is the same as gardening I would not have earnt enough from collections alone for another knight, but added to exisitng funds I can't say for certain that I couldn't afford one because of it.

Only thing I can think of is if the amounts for all collections were worked out (I don't know what else there is) then we could remove that from funds before buying knights maybe.

 I shall send my sims off fishing now to check that one out.

EDIT: Well it took a while, stupid anglerfish  ::) but fishing is same as gardening with + 500

I also loaded up my final challenge save, I had more simoleans left than the amount I would have made from collections, but not enough to finish another one by buying knights so my score hasn't really changed, which makes me feel better.

I have all the packs, so now you got me testing the rest of the collections.

Voidcritter cards +100
Omiscan artifacts +1000
City Posters +500
Snowglobes +500
Experimental Food +100
Feathers +100
Insects +100

There were a few collections I couldn't figure out how to complete in Debug.

Wow guys, it all snowglobed into a very confusing matter...
Maybe you should have just allowed money income from completing collections and doing collection-based activities from the start. It's not one can intentionally and unlimitedly repeat anyway...

And I still didn't get it, I'm afraid.
If I know that a certain Space Rocket mission can give me some simoleons, do I just have to cancel this certain mission if it appears? Or does it mean I can't use the spaceship at all?

The way I understand is if you know that a certain mission gives simoleons, cancel it.  Otherwise you can use the spaceship.

Ok,bit I did not note which missions gave me some simoleons in my testing file...
I don't know what to do with this spaceship now .

I didn't even realize that completing some collections gave me simoleons...this challenge is becoming complicated!

This was just a try on a fun collection challenge with a twist.
I really hope we can put this confusion behind us today.

As we all now gain simoleons by completing collections this is ofcause fine, as else it would invalide the whole challenge.
And use the rocketship, but if anyone know the 5000 k mission let us now so we atleast can try to avoid it. (I dont think i have ever seen it myself)

The offer still stands for those that want to restart their challenge.

I have been enjoying Last Epoch for those of you who enjoy ARPG style games -- it's really good. No multiplayer yet, so I am looking forward to when that is implemented so I can play with friends. Anyways, I tore myself away from that to finish this up --

8 complete collections minus 2 Knights = 790
AM - 28 components = 1 + 1.40 = 2.40

790 X 2.40 = 1896

-----------------

This challenge ends Sunday night so good luck to everyone finishing up.

I think I have never collected so many things while playing the sims 4  :D

I ended up with 12 complete collections,minus 6 knights of the octagon table -> 1170
Multiplier: 21 components for each sim =42 -> 1+2.10= 3.10

1170x3.10= 3627

I had loads of fun with this challenge!
I completed 6 collections, minus two knights, so 590.
My sims had 18 components completed between them.

590x1.9= 1,121
