Most lucrative vegetables for Simoleans hint for The Sims FreePlay


Most lucrative vegetables for Simoleans

I did the math. I made a whole chart showing how much you make for planting each veggie, NET, per hour. Wish I could post it here but the format doesn't work.

Of course you pay less for seeds at the grocery store. And your Sims make significantly more money when inspired - try to make sure your Sims are inspired before starting their gardening, always.

Peppers and Carrots make you most money per hour, but are labor-intensive. But good when you need some quick cash. Peppers nets an inspired Sim $480 an hour.

Corn is the next most lucrative veggie, netting an inspired Sim $276 an hour. But still pretty labor-intensive. What about when you need a few hours?

Well then, Lettuce, Watermelons, Potatoes and Zucchini are all reasonable choices. The shorter crops get you more money, but not if you don't make it back soon after they finish to start them again... So pick crops that match your timeframe.

Overnight? Garlic, Onions and Beans are all reasonable, with Garlic being the winner in profits. Eggplant is NOT profitable in comparison.

Losers to stay away from? Strawberries are the worst crop in terms of Simoleans, netting you a mere $2.33 per hour! Tomatoes and Pumpkins are also terrible choices. Eggplant and Spinach are bad buys as well. As long as you stay away from these things, you can be pretty profitable if you match your planting time with time away from the game.

One last tip. My boyfriend makes the mistake of planting onions in the afternoon and they finish in the middle of the night. Then in the morning, his Sims are all depleted and need taking care of again. If you get back to your Sims fairly promptly after planting, though, they should still be inspired through several planting cycles.

How much do beans make?

Added 29th Jun 2014, ID #408806

You get lp by going in the free ONLY WATCH VIDEOS or the party boat or racking up town value to 100,000 in which your daily reward is 1 LP

Added 27th Apr 2014, ID #379322

Onions would be the better option then beans for a tiny bit less and a whole 2 hours shorter you get pretty much the same money for the Onions...

Added 26th Apr 2014, ID #379095

Green beans are a better choice.... I'm honestly confused, why would you think Garlic earns you more? Was that a typo... ?

Added 26th Mar 2014, ID #368583

Wait, what? Garlic only makes ~400 in 8 hours a mere ~50 an hour! Go with beans.

Guys if you get the plant you DO NOT get what it told you you would get ok?
That's why they have a big profit because you have a one in two chance of getting the rewards.

Ok idk what happened but when I planted spinach and then waited a whole day . When it finnaly finish I negotiated with the plant and it disappeared and I got no simoleons I was supposed to get 8,000 so please help please tell me I waited a whole day for nothing

Added 6th Oct 2013, ID #312977

If your plant turns into a sim-eating plant, after negiotating with it, the plant will disappear. You don't get any Simoleons at all.

One time I got spinach and I got 2,400 XP and 1,980 simoleons...then the second time it didn't work lol I have four people who have children; Maria and Justin Quinby: Preteen is Sophie; two toddlers, Braedyn and Breanna. Second Shay and Jeremy Mitchelle: Preteen is Bella; Toddler is Bailea. Third Leah and Dylan Anderson: Infants, Mason and Amelia. Four Franchesca and Harry Styles: Preteens, Isabella and Nicholas; Toddlers, Antonina and Celeste; Infant is Claire.

Took a lot of Life Style points lol. I am on lvl 33! Simoloens: about 74,000. LP: 42. It took a lot of time and patients. Many people don't like this game because of it takes too much time and basically forces you to pay money. I really like the sims so I bought a lot of Itunes and yeah.

i have found the onions to work well for me-keeps them busy overnight and is better money than the 8 or 9 hour plants i think.
