Is the one time use of the machete intended?

    Mines keep losing them every time they use one.

    A little advice purchase several machetes from buydebug before sending your Sims

    IF you buy them and they are in your inventory first put them down on the ground when you want to use them and then they work that is how I did it.

    Hello everyone!

    Are any of you still experiencing this issue (Missing notification after losing machete)?. We have not been able to reproduce it at our end. Would any of you be willing to share your save files with us?. If so, instructions are here:


    Thank you very much!

    I lost my machete (it slipped out of my girl's hand) on the first day and spent the next four days hovering around the market to buy a new one. None of the merchants had any. Are they supposed to be rare?

    it's fairly random what the vendors will bring, but they shouldn't be quite that rare (...the pollen flowers, on the other hand... i almost never see those for sale). and if you're hovering around for four days, your sim potentially has a decently high culture skill now

    remember that at max level (5), the selvadoradan culture skill lets your sim 'ask to see secret wares' on any vendor at their table and buy infinite machetes, among other things

    The flowers should be included in the secret stuff! Now that am at 5 in Selvadorian culture I stock up on machetes like they are going out of style, as my sim keeps loosing them. Is there a skill that once at a certain level she will have a better chance of holding on?

    > others have already answered the question, but i wanted to let you know that if your sim reaches selvadoradan culture 5 (max level), they can ask selvadoradan merchants about their 'secret' wares, which lets them buy a lot of different supplies, including a random selection of relic heads and bases, a mix of various adventuring 'potions', and more imporantly, unlimited machetes and gcres. most of these things seem to be randomly selected, but the machete and gcre were there with both vendors i checked (not a huge sample, of course)

    What are/is "gcres"/"gcre?

    @Jules_Angel here's a screenshot of a grilled cheese ready to eat, or gcre:

    Closing this thread now as it's quite old and it seems the questions here are solved. Thanks everyone!
