Hi everybody! I thought I’d discuss what I’ve been getting up to in my game lately. I recently started a new family to test out some of my mods and I’ve become quite attached to them already! I’m playing with a single Sim, Michael Farron, and his pet dog, Maya. I moved them into Appaloosa Plains and into some hideous looking pre-made house. It came with a garage and a rather large garden.
I wanted him to start up his own business selling jars of Jam and preserves, so I got to work right away on his little garden. As time went on he ran out of money (having to buy food and pay bills is expensive when you don’t work!) so I had him take out a loan to kit out the garage a bit into a shop.
I used modded Bakery Shelves to start selling the jam and preserves with the help of the Savvier Sellers Collection but encountered a problem with the jars being restocked! They were broken!! Having spent so much time and money setting things up I hit a dilemma: do I give up with this dream business or do I think of other things to sell? Not being one to give up right away I checked my garden to see what produce was available to harvest and what stock I had left in the fridge. I was in luck, some plants had produced fruit that morning and we had some fruit left over in the fridge. The only problem was money. We had none and the repowoman had already been the previous day!
It was time to go back to the bank and get a further loan. This one didn’t need to be so high, just enough to get the Bakers Station and a chicken coop. So we got those and got to work on producing the goods to sell! We haven’t made much yet, but it’s still early days. I have upgraded the shop so it’s no longer a garage but now an actual shop front! Hopefully we will be able to meet someone who can help us run our business and start a family! 😀
Obviously I’m using a lot of Store Content, mods and custom content to make all this happen, but here’s a list of what I’m using and where you can find more info about them 😀
