Ah yes, the good old consignment flip. I don't think I've ever used that trick...might just try it in this one, given there aren't any points or anything. We've been mainly exploiting dumpsters and cutting gems to complement the one steady income. I'm doing a semi-wishacy style too, so waiting for Mrs Stay-at-Home to roll up a self-employment wish.

Lol, at least your little Miss isn't like mine who rolled an immediate wish to become a painter, but then the second her first child was born decided "eh, who needs to work? Let me quit!"
Not like she had earned any money from it, but still. :roll:
I've found the Elixir Consignment Store works best, but you have to have a chunk of change to begin with to really see any noticeable reward. Good luck, and if you try it, let me know how it turns out! I'm curious to see if you have luck with your first time (as I remember my first attempt flipping when I first heard of it left my Sims broke and unable to sell things, lol)!

Okay, well it's nearly 4 am but I've finished and written up my first update for this after having to restart because of failing to put them on a blank lot. >_<

She has now decided to be a sculptor...but has rolled only one sculpting wish since then. Family Oriented trait is so strong with this one.
I will have to save up some money before we can do a full flip; we semi-tried with the normal consignment, but could only afford a couple of paintings, which earned us about $300 total. Have just found a moonstone, so that should net us a bit.

I am STRUGGLING to decide who to use to do this challenge.
My town has been set up for two days ready for this, but Im just sitting here and really can not decide which sims to use :fisty:

I am sick of Red and she has just done a baby challenge .. BUT ...
this is my chance to do something I have always wanted to do ... put my two baby machines together (Red and Cello) sit back and watch the baby boom ... literally :rotfl:

Use Forrest and Caramel to try and get my Forrest obsession out of my system ... BUT ... I plan to do a Perfect Genetics challenge with him because I LOVE his genetics

I have tonnes of couples I could use ... and I don't really feel like making a new CAS couple because I have too many sims already clogging up my bin and library :roll:

I felt the same way, Julie! Eventually I decided on a born-in-game sim that I love, and a child from my WYDC - two sims that hadn't seen much game play. Maybe go with two you haven't played much with?

I am productive.... and perhaps only a little crazy, but I decided to do this Baby Boom Challenge too! :))

Anyhow, here's the first update, with some familiar faces for those that have read... some of my work... hehe...

Update 1

I hope you enjoy reading this, mostly because I'm not really writing the usual style I write in. But I had fun anyhow!

This sounds interesting! I really want to try but my game is terrible for spitting out boys so I know I'd frustrate myself to no end.

I wanted to ask, will this medal be available forever? I might try but I want to finish my legacy first.
EDIT When is the official deadline for the birthday period? The 24th?

I'm so excited to see everyone taking a crack at this challenge. I, too, have update two up and around!
I'm officially 1/12 | 1/12 on boys and girls! I'm super excited! I may start a boolprop thread for it. :hmm:

@Somebodysangel - Adilyn is the SAME! That family oriented trait OWNS her, meanwhile Liam ALSO has that trait but it doesn't seem to have the same pull. During Adilyn's pregnancy Liam didn't even wish to have a baby with her... it was strange! :hmm: Meanwhile I intended Adilyn to be a painter and she's only wished twice to paint something. :roll: The rest of the time it's just cleaning and BABIES.

@ItsJulie - It took me FOREVER as well. I have a lot of story characters but I don't often like mixing them into challenges... so that left my selection pool to be a little small. I'm super happy with who I ended up with though. While I'm all for Red, it may be time to give someone else a chance to baby BOOM ;)
Besides, you can always do the challenge again with Red later!

@Jenn, I totally feel you on no mods. That's always the WORST when it comes to updates.

My internet is being so spotty here at work! :fisty: I can't wait to read everyone's Baby Booms when I get home! :hearts:

Ooh, I'm off to read it now!

Three

Next one is up. At this rate, Bethany is barely alive and Diego is SuperDad. Both aspirations are now complete though.

I am wondering if we can have age ups for certain milestones? At this rate, I'll still have these same kids in the house next summer.

Oh I had a quick question kind of along Jenn's thought - can we cake up the *day* of their birthday? I don't like waiting and sometimes the birthdays get bugged. I'm on a very mathematical schedule for the pregnancies and this would help me immensely to keep track of things. :heart:

@ Fiona:

There is no deadline in which to finish this challenge, the medal will still be available after the 24th to be won. Like the Monster Mash challenge, it's an ongoing event with no deadline.

Great start! Barristan is adorable. I love Cristina. She hooked up with Puff Derpington on my save. It amuses me that she now has a sister named Christine



I like your couple and congrats on the twins!

Okay, I got my blog for this all set up: Multiplying Murdles I've played some and am typing up the official update next. I included links to everyone else's Baby Booms if they've posted them here...if anyone doesn't want it linked, let me know and I'll take it down. :) I mainly put it there for my own ease of finding when I've got time to be doing the catchup on reading. :)
