I started watching James Turner’s Rags to Riches in The Sims 4 Cottage Living a little bit ago. This inspired me to play cottage living with very few packs to focus on just that one pack.
I created a sim, Skye Aston, and bought the small/cheaper house in the village area of Henford. She is available on the gallery. There’s two versions: one with 1 piece of CC and one without any CC at all. I prefer the CC version; it includes a bandage on her left forearm.
For my playthrough, I didn’t go full $0 Rags-To-Riches on a ‘blank’ lot. Instead I started her off with only the starter funds & I’m trying to earn money using cottage living methods. So far, it’s been fun & adorable. Especially her hen chick, Hannah.
My biggest find has been that normal chickens can lay golden eggs, which can then make the gold dishes. So I used the golden pulse to make everything prefect. This includes my nightly mushrooms (thanks to not having seasons, I don’t have to worry about the time of year). All berries mushrooms can then be sold to the Creature Keeper for super great prices. So Skye has like 5 nightly mushroom plants, but can make around $1,000 per day. It feels so broken making so much daily. Partly because it has let my upgrade her things (bed, toilet, stove) so quickly.
