Water Mellon Down to Business

>> Tuesday, June 17, 2008

These events take place before Tierra De Legado.

Water was recently featured in Legacy Living's very first article about the local businesses.

He has been busy!

It all started with the chocolate shop. Water made gourmet candies for a company before he became a celebrity chef. As he was working, he came up with his own delicious ideas involving exotic flavors he'd picked up from his travels. So he thought, "why not?"

The paintings are painted by Water and his father, Alec, who runs a gallery. Water wanted his shop to look good and be inviting. So he leaves out the nectar juice for guests to enjoy.

Women flock to the shop to visit personally with Water. It's all about the show. Nevermind that one small box of chocolates costs $500 and the larger one is $1,000. For the way he makes the ladies feel, it is well worth it.

Water is indeed a romance sim. But he has selected his one, Demi Love. She doesn't help him at the chocolate shop (for good reason!), so that's supposedly why she wasn't mentioned in the article about Water.

Demi loves Water greatly, but although she had promised to help him in his next venture, she found she couldn't. Doctor's orders. She was pregnant!

Water wanted better than the little hole in the wall they were living, so he bought a little shop and turned it into "Water's Gourmet Diner."

It has a homey feel, but you can go and get some really fancy stuff for a pretty reasonable price. Plus, in what other fancy restaurant do you get to meet the chef? Water doesn't want anything between himself and the customers. He wants them to see exactly what kind of kitchen he runs.

To help supplement his earnings, Water sells his famous pies now at the front. It doesn't deter sims from eating there though.

Water has done really well. He started off with nothing, and he's continually won the Best of the Best Award. Thanks to all the cash he's raking in, Water was able to buy a lovely new home.

Just in time too.

Sorry! I hope this wasn't too long. Water is one of my favorite sims. I wasn't sure when he started out with nothing that he'd be able to pull all this off, but this has been what I wanted for him. All of this happened over a five sim day period. So it was like a year for him! Wow, he works fast.

Wow! That chocolate shop looks cool! And your sim is running a restaurant! Anything near this I've ever had in my game is a bakery and both I and my sims are struggling with it soooo much. I guess I should've opened it on a community lot and not at home, and I should learn to 'use' emplyees effectively.

You know what the trick is... the candies sell for a VERY small profit margin. So I actually set the candies for sale at $500 (he buys them for something like $14). Then you just dazzle the pants off the customers and rake in the money!

The Restaurant is actually losing money, so I'm still playing with it. But the nice part is that the Chocolates bring in so much money, Water doesn't have to worry.

I'm a proudly nerdy girl who knows too much about X-Men and has stories running through her head when walking. This is really my first real attempt to share just a few of the stories that not only play in my head when walking, but play out when I'm playing my sims. I hope you enjoy. ^___^
