You can also blow stuff up to get scrap. Vehicles give the most scrap that I have seen so far. I blew up my neighbors vehicle and he didn't care one bit. However I did get fined $45 for blowing up a bench. You can get your money back by selling inventions you make from it though. ;)

You should go behind community places and look in the dust bins.


You can dentonate stuff, but you still have to pay :/
You can dentonate your neighbors stuff, and they will not care :D

You can buy scrap metal from your workbench if you have one and it costs like 200 or 100 sim dollars it could cost more I don't know but it works instead of finding it or blowing up your own or public stuff you get fined for blowing up other sims things and can you get horses on the sims 3 pets ps3
