I did this over the weekend but I am not sure I did it right. I took my sim to the gym to shower and she napped on public benches a lot. Is that still right or does she need to do everything on her home lot? Gardening ended up being very lucrative for her. After the house was built she got married and now has a kid. It's weird the sense of accomplishment you have when you start from literally nothing.

I think that your sim should start off with at least 100 simoleons. Only saying this because sims die quick if they can't eat

This challenge is absolutely perfect! Seems like something that can be done pretty quickly, but that's not a bad thing. Thanks so much for this! I'd been looking for a homeless challenge for a while. o:

I went ahead and made some dirty looking recolours to make her look all shabby. Can't wait to play with her more!


Can I have the recolors?

Just found a perfect lot at MTS to start this challenge. Hope you`ll add the link in the list of this thread.

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.

Wow this has been going on for a long time now! No matter, it looks like fun, so I am doing it. I made my Sim, Taryn Robertson and I moved her to Brindleton Bay in the lot with the trees on it across from the park. I have never been on the lot before and it turns out to be perfect. Lots of fishing spots and places to dig and Sims walking and jogging giving her many opportunities to make friends. I had her do that right away and of course Nancy Landgrab was the first. She is always jogging by no matter where your Sim lives! After meeting a few Sims and greeting the Welcome Wagon, she dug up a few dirt piles and made $40. I started her out with $50. She has already gained the video game skill (on her own) and charisma skill by talking to Sims. I had her go fishing, gaining that skill and that's it so far. Right now she is happy...we will see how happy she is in a few hours. I will post again when she is further along. This is going to be fun!!

I met the goal of the challenge rather quickly, but I am continuing as there is a lot of game play left for this Sim. I am currently building her a new house on a beach front lot. There doesn't seem to be any interest in this challenge or anyone's stories, sadly. It is really too bad because this is a good challenge and a good way to start playing a household.

I just finished this challenge and let me just say, it was SO FUN. I played with the mini-challenges and it took me about two in-game weeks. (Although, my Sim did go fishing and got a Gold Bar and a pet's Ambrosia treat, so that did speed it up considerably. Kudos to you for writing such an amazing challenge!!!

Nice idea to try. But do you need all the packs to try it?

Just a quick hint to anyone wanting to play this. If a sim sees you making them food (in the same room) they will declare it inappropriate and ask you to stop. However they never get upset with you doing dishes or cleaning. Sometimes they'll come while you're cleaning and clean the next thing in your queue. Households of about 5 with multiple children are probably best for the domestic worker challenge.

It was time to add Kaylynn Langerak in to my current Pleasantview theme, so I decided to try this with her. I had her clean at the Lotharios, Goths, and Pleasants like she does in TS2, but no shenanigans. Daniel was very upset with her for cooking in his kitchen. She cooked an entire holiday meal at the Goths and they did not care.

Default Odd jobs
Now with the newer expansion packs, what about doing odd jobs to make cash?

I loved this challenge and I did complete it, it was so much fun! Sims 2 on console or PC had the best play period!!

They can go to a community lot and get fruit, vegetables to eat until you fish or something to make money

I've tried to follow the rules (unusual for me ) and my understanding from the challenge creator's notes is:


At first you can have only what's in your inventoryt


Once you have earned/rummaged/borrowed enough money (500 simoleons) to buy a build permit you can then purchase things to put on your lot.

Hope this helps someone at a later date.

That's the challenge, to survive with limited resources. However eating isn't a problem in TS4 as long as your sim harvests produce from lots. I've found my sims need to eat 3 or 4 different fruits or veggies in order to fill up the hunger bar for a while.

Another workaround is to hang out at any park near the grills or join a sim that's already grilling in public park. Just grab a plate and join them! They never complain!

Right now in TS4 after the EcoLiving pack all the outdoor garbage cans broke. There is no trash for homeless sims to rummage looking for food or items to sell. I only have base game.

Be glad when that glitch is fixed!

It doesn't take long to make money in TS4, just sim time.
