Let's start off with those karma achievements. They should be the easiest and quickest ones to complete in this section. To use a karma power, hit the back button, then scroll over to Karma powers.
At this point, it's likely you already have this one, but simply use any karma power. If you can't seem to find any karma points (which is extremely unlikely considering you get some each night at midnight), start any new household. You start with some karma points. Just go pick any karma power and bam! Achievement popped:
Next we'll get the maximum karma. Another easy one, just let your karma build up without using it. Once your karma has hit 100, you'll get this achievement:
Reach the maximum potential Karma.
Now we're going to play the bad guy. Go to a crowded area such as a park (don't have to send a Sim, just need to go there yourself) and then open up the karma menu. Select the "Epic Fail" karma power and use it on any Sim that isn't in your current household. The power costs only 25 points, so if you have maxed out karma, you'll be able to use it 4 times. Simply use this power 13 times and the achievement will pop. The power can be used all on the same Sim, as long as they're not a member of your current family:
Use the Epic Fail Karma Power on 13 unsuspecting sims not in your family.
Now we'll be fulfilling some conditions to purchase those last few karma powers. If you've been following this walkthrough so far, you should have already unlocked Divine Intervention when you explored the catacombs after midnight. Also, you should have unlocked the Get Lucky power after your first kiss. If you decided to go the karma power route to speed up your skill learning process, you should have unlocked the Stroke of Genius karma power from attending any class that furthered your skills. This leaves two more karma powers we have yet to unlock. You can unlock Good Times by having one of your Sims have 5 positive moodlets at the same time. You can get moodlets when you do something your Sim likes such as having them take a shower/bath so they feel clean, having them eat a good meal, or having them have a good workout. Most of these moodlets last for a few hours, so it shouldn't be too hard to get this one. Doing this will also net you another achievement:
Get 5 positive moodlets at the same time on one Sim.
The last karma power you need to unlock isn't too difficult either. For the Giant Jackpot power, you'll need to raise your household value over 35,000 simoleons. An easy way to do this is to save up some money and then spend it on cars. Cars will lose value quickly, so make sure you do it all at once. Once you reach 35,000 you'll see a notification informing you that you've unlocked the karma powerand you'll net an achievement:
Raise your household's value to §35,000 or more.
If you purchased cars to get this, you'll also pop this achievement:
Now that you've unlocked all of these karma powers, you'll have to purchase them using points that you've gained from completing challenges. We'll get into completing challenges in a bit, but you should have completed enough at this point so that you can buy all of these in the challenge shop (can be found by hitting the back button and going to the challenges). The rest of the karma powers are already unlocked, so once they're all available for use, you'll get the next achievement:
Unlock every Good Karma Power by purchasing them with Challenge Points.
The last karma achievement makes you go a bit out of your way to get it easily (which is the way I'll be explaining). Start a new game and move into the Landgraab household. Immediately go into the buy menu and sell everything in the house. On the first floor, set up a bunch of laptops on tables, counters, etc. Just buy as many as you can and locate them all right next to each other. Then, use the Firestorm karma power. Use it as many times as you can (it only costs 15 points). Just let everything sit until the fires burn out. Towards the end, you'll get a notification that the insurance company has given you money. If you use this method, you should get a check for at least 5,000 simoleons. This will get you the achievement:
Get an insurance check for over §15,000 after using the Firestorm Karma Power.
If you see one of the Sims catch fire during this, get another one to interact with him/her and use extinguish. This will net you another achievement (if this doesn't happen, just try using firestorm again and you'll get it eventually... it shouldn't take more than a few tries):
Extinguish a Sim on fire.
Now let's tackle those Challenge achievements. You'll be able to get 3 achievements just by completing challenges. You can see all of the challenges by going to the Challenges menu when you hit the Back button. There are a ton of different challenges to get, so go through the list and tackle them as you please. If you still have a good writer in your household, you can get a bunch of these by writing a novel of each genre. You can get the achievements for completing 50, 100, and 150 challenges:
Moving onto Wishes, you can get 3 achievements for completing a certain amount, similar to Challenges. The difference is that Wishes will appear throughout your regular gameplay. These usually depend on what skills your Sim is best at. You can have up to 5 Wishes active at any time and you can remove them if others come up that you want to work towards instead. I found that the best skill to work on to get a lot of wishes that are worth a lot of happiness points (we'll get there in few minutes) is writing. Keep on going at that writing skill and you'll see wishes pop up to have you write a book of a certain genre, write a certain amount of books, earn a certain amount in royalties, etc. The number of wishes you've completed add up across all of your saves and include each member of your household. So, 1,000 wishes may seem like a lot, but it's really not too bad. You'll earn achievements for completing 10, 100, and 1,000 wishes:
As you're working towards getting these achievements, you'll also earn happiness points. There's no way to track exactly how many happiness points a Sim has gained if you've begun to spend them without adding everything up manually, so just keep on going. For the next two achievements, you'll need to gain a ton of happiness points on only one Sim. The easiest way to get a bunch of happiness points is to attain that Sim's lifetime wish. From them on, writing is the best way to go since the points will increase heavily as you write more. You'll pop achievements for getting 150,000 and 250,000 happiness points on one Sim:
Gain 150,000 Lifetime Happiness Points on one Sim.
Gain 250,000 Lifetime Happiness on one Sim.
Note: The "Miracle Worker" and "True Wealth" achievements easily take the longest amount of time to get, so I'd recommend saving these ones for last.
The next section will clean up the rest of the achievements in the game.
