Lifetime Purchase Points – Ron’s Defaults

Ron’s defaults – the easiest and most efficient purchases to grow your sim

There are certain things you will need to purchase with your lifetime points that make the game easier. The reason you want to focus on certain purchases is because points are not cheap. They can take a long while to obtain, especially if you choose higher goals that take a lot of time. This guide will help you earn rewards, build skills, and make life easier for you (and possibly your sim) by streamlining your lifetime purchases.

Basic Strategy

You want to leave at least one or two spaces open with 150-500+ lifetimes points in the WISH QUEUE. The reason for this is so you can easily delete or accomplish little things. The bigger things remain in the background. You can always take the chance to eliminate a large reward 2500-5000+, and hope that it comes back later, or you can cut losses and do tons of small things that add up to that amount. I go the middle road and try to leave 2 spots for small rewards, two for bigger. If it seems like a long time since you’ve earned anything, it’s probably better to cut losses and erase one of your bigger wishes. I have made this “default” skill guide so that you can build your sim quickly. If you enjoy taking your time by all means play that way, this is just a guide to earn rewards and grow skills as quickly as possible for your sim.

Here I will list by priority, and leave it to you to choose the best strategy for your sim
I also made the following categories: Convenience/Job/Skills/Rewards and Money


Lifetime Purchases


High Priority – these are the purchases you want to acquire quickly

Skills: Helps improve Skillsets

Super Greenthumb 20,000 – improves gardening

Acclaimed Author 30,000 – write best novels

Low Priority – these are very useful, but are expensive so should be purchased later

    […] Steel Bladder/Hardly Hungry/Etc. (see my defaults) […]

  2. Tarot Says:

    I’d rate the Moodlet Manager a lot higher…you can keep it on you and “cure” yourself of any negative moodlet, like the sleepiness, and your Energy will immediately top off. You don’t get the well-rested buff unless you go take a nap/sleep right after that, but at least you can keep fishing your brains out.

    And the Teleporter is handy in that you can use your cell phone to Teleport Home and then immediately zip out to some other place.

    That’s just my §2, but thought I’d add it. =)

      Hey Tarot,

      The reason I rated those as a low priority is simply because of the cost, and honestly the moodlet manager is more trouble to me at times. It can backfire – and it backfires A LOT, originally I just threw the thing away because I thought all it did was zap even when you choose cure, like an evil trick the gamemakers played on us all, lol. But I finally figured out it can take two, three, four, five? times before it actually works.

      Again, they are simply low priority, and has less to do with their usefulness. I had to factor in what the other purchases can do for your sims job/relationships/daily life before you have 60,000 points, and try to pick the most useful. They are “Ron’s Defaults” after all, just a guide.

      And of course I think you should get them last so you can enjoy building your sim in the “natural” environment first. I mean really they are just cute ways to cheat, haha.

      Thanks for your constructive comment, much appreciated my friend 🙂

    can you delete a lifetime reward you have purchased and want to remove?

  4. MiyuEmi Says:

    Oh, also the Fast Learner does not work. Perhaps they’ve fixed this with patches, but the reward doesn’t function properly.

    I would rate Observant high too. It means it makes it easier for your sim to get to know people so that you’ll know what to expect with their friends or partners.
