To accumulate money, possessions, skill points, license plates etc., without being called a little time traveling cheater and facing alien invasion, turn your internal clock and date back, BEFORE you create your sim, then gradually save. I started mine on 01/01/2000. I gathered all the fuel rods and gourds I could and gathered everything in my room to sell. Then I built rooms, saved the game and moved the clock forward 8 hours. Then I checked in everyone I could and moved it forward 7 days. I kept doing this and kept accumulating money. I started actually playing the game with over 200,000 simoleons.
