Rosebud Challenge Week 4, Day 28 – Fortuna’s Fortuitous Birthday

Yesterday was supposed to be Fortuna’s birthday, but she didn’t age up into a child for some reason. This may actually be a good thing for the Family since it will give them some bonus time to earn some more money they will need to expand their house. Their personal goal is to earn §40,000 simoleons before starting the renovations.


 Starting Funds: §38,375

Rosabelle needs to gain level 2 logic in order to get promoted at work. They have no logic items at home so Rosabelle and Pawel travel to the library so she can learn logic and Pawel can continue working on his book. Fortuna goes to the Day Care Center while they are away.

Rosabelle is almost able to achieve level 2 logic before she needs to leave to go to work. Pawel heads home once she leaves for work.

 The moment Pawel walks in the door, Fortuna ages up into a child! This is a fortuitous event because it will allow them to wait for Rosabelle to return home with her salary before renovating the house!

They sell the crib for §150, funds are now §41,547 simoleons.

Fortuna’s fortuitous late birthday allowed them to earn an extra day’s worth of simoleons before renovating the house!

With Rosabelle’s pay from work today they have reached their personal goal of §40,000 simoleons to start renovations on their house. Fortuna is also getting sleepy and needs a bed to sleep in.

They sold quite a few items from the demolition during the construction such as doors, wallpapers and flooring. They also sold all their sink, shower, broken fridge, and counter to upgrade those to better quality items. The amount sold was §827 simoleons, their funds are now §42,545 simoleons.

They expand the living, kitchen and dining areas as well as move the master bedroom around, adding another bedroom and re-configuring the bathroom. They also upgraded the bathroom woth a new shower, the nicest one available and also got a nicer sink and mirror. They bought a new, nicer fridge to replace the broken one for the kitchen and replaced the counter with a nicer one too. The created a real living area with their two promotional chairs and a new TV and coffee table for it to sit on. They also decided to buy themselves a new bed, The Single Double Misson Bed, so they will be more rested for work. They move their old Glamping bed to Fortuna’s new bedroom. After all the construction and renovation is complete, they have spent §14,364 simoleons!

Their funds are now § 28,181 simoleons.

This is the end of week 4 of the challenge, there were suppose to be 2 week updates on the actual achievement BUT it stopped tracking their progress sometime this week. I believe that it may have come from accidentally being in full CAS edit mode at some time, maybe when I redressed Fortuna, I’m not sure.

4weekrosebudprogress-NOTWORKING

So I’m going to have to track it myself. I think that the achievement that I showed 2 weeks ago (see below) calculated the total net worth based on their household funds and property value. Therefore I am going to use those numbers from now on to calculate the Prospero’s net worth.

2weekrosebudprogressProgress from 2 weeks ago, household funds at the time were §6568 simoleons, so it had to be taking the property value into the progress.

4 Week Progress Report

Household funds: §28,171

Lot Value: §26,341

Net Worth: §54,512 simoleons!

The Prospero’s are now 5.4% of the way to their goal of 1 million simoleons! Wow they are actually really far away…

Check back soon for Week 5 – Day 29

    You are doing an amazing job having them steadily increase their family funds! It is really intriguing to follow how you are managing. Fortuna is beautiful. I really love the picture of her at the art table next to her dad cooking, and all the family photos on the walls look so adorable. Especially the picture of Rosabelle holding baby Fortuna. I need to take more snapshots of my sims for their walls!

    The new house looks SO pretty, front and back.

      Thanks, they have been doing very well with their family funds and Fortuna grew into a beautiful girl who looks just like Daddy. I love the snapshots and the best part is they are free! And they get something to remember their special moments and to put on their blank walls!
