I am really bummed out - I have not gotten a magma ember since that single one earlier this week. I picked up a gold or two, but the magma embers are rarer than ever. It's like they don't WANT us to have XP, to slow down our leveling up... I finally got to 34 today, made my new Sim (and Oliver immediately eloped with her, so he got his name back). She was supposed to be Alicia Spinnet, but I named her Alicia Wood, so he could get his name back when she asked him to move in. I even tried sun baking a couple of Sims, because that was supposed to earn magma before they took away the Febreze toilet. Nothing - no resources at all. On the other hand, my cats found 10 LP today and I earned another 10 in Fashion Design doing the 4 minute thing with 2 people for an hour. So I started building my new house on a premium lot. Oliver & Alicia can't have a baby until Level 36 - at this rate, it'll be 2 weeks. I really want another toddler! Wish we could adopt a toddler, too! Wish they gave us one Sim per level. I left my Sim Cinema alone and I use it as a movie theatre, rather than moving anybody in to it. My haunted house is unoccupied as well and I'm thinking of making a community garden / park on the lot next to it where Rolanda's Sanctuary House is - move some trees around, make the two buildings into little bathrooms, put some wood working benches there, some garden plots, maybe a little pool if I ever earn a darned diving board...
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

At present, I have 321 Pickaxes - that's enough to get me to level 28 (if it even goes up that far!), but only 6 Gold, which is not enough even to get me to level 15 (my next level). I also have 227 Granite.

Then I have 172 Onxy, but only 2 Essence of Wind, 89 Igneous Rock and only 1 Magma Ember, 25 Limestone and only 2 Pearls.

I've noticed magma embers for "hot" tasks like clearing oven fires and drinking coffee. Also for tasks with all kinds of love, like Woohoo, be romantic, huging the children, cuddle pets, feeding pets. And for designing ... possibly my sim has thought of her/his lover while working :lol:

Since the teen update I got 6 Gold, 2 essences of wind, 8 magma embers and 5 pearls. Before the update I bought resources with LPs now and then. I used to earn LPs with chasing cars. But now my game crashes, when I try this :( Of course I get LPs with the hobbies. But not as many as with chasing cars.

It goes to Level 70 I've heard. But the monuments look complete at Level 25. Personally I have learned to love my headless turtle and think of them as what they are ancient ruins. Ruins that may never be restored.... I no longer even bother to keep track. I burned out jumping up and down over a toilet spraying Febreeze.

I earn §1 or sometimes a big §5, once, and only once I got §10. I have never seen an LP rise from a car. You must have better cars than me. Whatcha drivin' ErinPW?

Long time ago, before I knew the luxury car comes with the (single storey) mansion, Bernice had a black Prius. At that time she was the only driver. It only took a week to earn 60 LPs for the luxury car.
For chasing cars I only had Luxies on the road :oops:

I feel your pain & am in a similar position. Wouldn't it be great if we could sell all the unwanted resources :|

Or if there was an alchemy hobby whereby a sim could turn granite into gold.
(For anyone interested, I have since found 1 gold... and another 12 Pickaxes!)

A way to turn a resource in to another would sure be nice.
The rare resources have become extremely rare.

So I was completely surprised to see a magma ember pop-up when 1 of my sims was designing fashion. Apparently it was quit a hot design that he made.
Just want to get some pearls to get that monument to level 5 to unlock the last houseboat.
But haven't seen pearls in more than a week at least. Can't even remember when I got the last one.

This is a priceless idea! A new hobby!
