Daily Deal (DD) 2018 Rotation List and Sales Help

    I'm going to chat a bit. :smiley:

    My DD adventure is pretty much over. I own almost all that came along as DD. Not all but far more than I intended. I'm glad I did that. To be honest, I didn't feel like having another DD round and waiting 3 more months (at most) for something I would like so I planned/scheduled and saved so I could get it. I did get this feeling of a rush every time I purchased a good deal (oh, so many good deals). Even the anticipation, when the moment to purchase came closer, I liked. I think this whole DD (stalking) system does release some chemicals in the brain or something: the reward system is highly activated. And yet, I'm fine with my DD adventure being over. No more getting up in the middle of the night. I had some points left so I gifted those away. With DD I felt this urge: I MUST have this, I WANT this. Those feelings have calmed down so I'm more relaxed about it. I do still have some items on my wishlist though, they are just not part of DD. Does anyone know how much % you need to have in order to have the set for free? Nothing of this set is part of DD. I'm sure the answer is on the first page somewhere, I just can't find it.

    I can finally start with cleaning up my game. After my DD adventure, it was always my plan to uninstall my game, reinstall everything and start using SimGameSelect (I always installed a selection of what I had, now I can just install all and pick and play) and using Ciane's method to reinstall my store content. Next to this I also want to fix that whole missing stencil thing (I downloaded several items for this) and install the festival lots of some new worlds I own.

    I'm so dreading this. :# Not removing and reinstalling my TS3 packs, I did that so often so piece of cake, and not even making backups, I'm a stickler for backups so my backups are more or less up to date, but the whole reinstalling the store content. So I keep postponing it. And I really want to do all those things before I start a fresh new game. I also have some NRaas mods ready for action. When TS3 still was being updated I pretty soon stopped used CC/Mods because I didn't like the hassle of updating everything every single time there was a new patch. But now, since TS3 is not being updated anymore, I'm fine with using some. And NRaas improves my gameplay experience very much. :+1:

    Anyway, over here it's time to start making dinner. But this afternoon, I baked myself some chocolate pancakes so now I'm not hungry. I will probably eat a sandwich or something in a couple of hours.

    Oh, something else that is really cool. My niece, the 2 year old girl, she can finally say my name! I'm sure she was just repeating her mother (because she and my brother use my name all the time to her) and that she doesn't have the awareness yet that I go with that name. But I don't care. She said my name, we even have it on tape, and it's awesome! <3

    Thanks @seaben :smiley:. I used to use that calculator all the time during my DD adventure. Only I don't think it can be used for NON daily deal items since I have to enter the full price and daily deal price (there is no DD price) in order to give a normal CYS price.

    EDIT:
    Oh, my experience is that that calculator is pretty accurate. At most is was 5 (maybe 10) SimPoints off. So sometimes an items was a bit (a tiiiiiiny bit) more expensive and sometimes it was a bit (also a tiny bit) cheaper than calculated.

    @SimLibby

    I am so glad that you joined the thread and shared your DD adventure with us. I also appreciate the assistance you have provided to other DD stalkers who posted questions.

    I just did a quick search of page 1 and I don't think the answer to your question is on page 1 of the thread. I will definitely take a closer look and update that if necessary.

    It has been 6 years since I completed my store collection so I am relying on old posts to answer your question. But from memory the power of the CYS was when it was combined with the DD price or the sale price for sets on the Sales page, or if the set was a combination or compilation set. If the set does not fit this criteria, then the CYS discount is not that great. Here is a more detailed explanation LadyBugLeslie posted in 2015 in the thread "Is there a way to calculate what the 'complete your set' discount will be?"
    ...
    If a set is not on the sale page and will never be on the DD page, then the only way to get a green download on the set is to pick up items from the set that equal the price of the set. For example, the Back 2 Skool set is not on the DD list. It's set price is 693 sp. But if you add up all of the items individually the set is worth 801sp. If you picked up 693 sp worth of items you'd get the rest for free. It's not a very exciting deal, because the set doesn't go on the DD, but I hope that helps you see how the math works.

    I would like to add to this explanation. The example set chosen, Back 2 Skool, is included in the August 2011 Compilation. Neither the set or compilation is offered on the DD. However, Luxe Lounge Spa and Luxury Resort Attire are offered on the DD. Therefore, the power of the CYS could work here if the compilation CYS is reduced by the two sets on the DD. I would suggest the set "Fanciful Fashion & Hairstyles" which is not on the DD and not included in a compilation is a better example.

    Despite my comment regarding the example, the most important is LadybugLeslie's answer, "If a set is not on the sale page and will never be on the DD page, then the only way to get a green download on the set is to pick up items from the set that equal the price of the set."

    Edit to add: In my experience, the CYS was not always predictable and could offer the green download button before the expected value calculated by the formula. My advice is to check the product page after each item you purchase to see if the green download button is activated.

    Reinstalling store content following Ciane's method is worth it. Once you get started, you will likely get into a rhythm and the process will move faster. I followed her method but I did not follow what sets she installed. (i.e. - I followed the order of categories to install and the limit of file size.) One of Ciane's goals was to reduce the number of installations. She would install compilations so she did not need to install the sets that were included in the compilation. I installed the individual sets and not the compilations. When I play, I like to use the feature that shows store collections in the in-game catalogue. I prefer to see each set individually as opposed to be grouped in the compilations.

    I agree with you that your niece saying your name is awesome. I love when toddlers would say my name. My heart would fill with joy.

    Hi @Me1620,

    Thank you very much for your elaborate response. <3 And you're welcome as well. :smiley:

    After your response I did some "math". The items I have are worth 784 SP so according to the formula I still must purchase items for 789 SP. But the value of the items I do not own is 854 SP so there is not much to gain there (just 65 SP). However I'm at 56% and therefore my current CYS price is 385 SP. Well, no rush. I have what I wanted from the DD. All the extra is bonus and because it's not DD less pressure to purchase it at an certain time.

    That makes sense (how/what you installed). Some of my files sizes exceed the limit so much. I can't wait to experience what's going to happen when the limit is not exceeded. I appreciate the pep talk and will certainly keep that in mind when finally doing it myself.

    When I would (re)install my store content, I more or less did the same to avoid doubles (and when installing a compilation I just purchased, I would uninstall the sets in that compilation). I would choose compilations over sets because that equals less items to install. But depending on what I wrote below, I may reconsider.

    I do too, especially when I can't find something (there are just so much items filed under the decorations). When I use the catalog, I often also want to select items that way to place on my lot. However, sometimes that function doesn't seem to work (so I had to go back to my decorations anyway, search for it and place if from there). I would select an item from the store catalog and it wouldn't place on my lot*. I never understood why until now (I just chucked it up as yet another persistent bug). But I need to check it. Maybe you know. Could it* be because that particular set is not installed, but the compilation it belongs to is?

    A while back she also said her own name for the first time. It was so cute. Everything she does triggers joy. Talking does not come natural yet for her so most things she said are a combination between actual words and gibberish. It's adoring. <3

    Hi, everyone! I'm back to lurking in this thread. Life got in the way for a while and I forgot about my Sims, both the games and the deals. When I logged in and saw 400+ new posts in this thread, I realized it's been a while. It honestly didn't seem like months, more like weeks, but time flies I guess. Given the overall state of this year, that could be good or bad.

    I hope everyone is well. I've got some back reading to do here.

    Thanks again for posting the deals and spreadsheets. :smile:

    Hi guys,

    I have a question about Sim Game Selector. Maybe somebody around here knows the answer.

    My last installed pack is Island Paradise, therefore I start my game with the application (TS3EP10) from that pack. Let's say I use the Selector to disable that pack, so it gets hided from the Launcher and is not loaded when I start the game. Does that also mean I cannot start my game with TS3EP10, after all this pack is in hiding from the Launcher. It's my understanding I can also start the game through the Selector. But what if I don't want that. Do I still launch the game through TS3EP10 or the last pack before that, that I have installed and is not in hiding from the Launcher.

    Also, I can still use the latest version 3.0 right? Version 2.2 supports IP an 3.0 supports movie stuff and into the future. I don't have those packs but 3.0 is the most recent version and I'll assume IP support is also included in version 3.0.

    @SimLibby Yes that's what it means. TSEP10 will be hidden as if it were not installed. This may differ if you're on 1.69, but I'm on 1.67 and when I hit my TS3W.exe to start the game (which I do because I have all discs and don't want to go through the launcher), the game boots with the latest pack. I also have the mod we're not allowed to mention so I don't have to scramble around trying to find and put in a different disc every time I disable packs. :wink:

    Hi @ZeeGee.

    Thanks!
    I'm on 1.67 as well and want to avoid the Launcher as much as possible. :#

    This is a good idea. When I'm going to use the Selector I'm going to do the same. I usually take the specific application from the most recent pack that is also installed, in my case TSEP10.exe from IP which of course is not practical when using the Selector where you switch packs on and off.

    No idea to what you are referring. Even the wink didn't give it away for me. :p If it's NOT to much trouble, and if you're allowed (I'm well over 21 should that be of any concern), could you please send me the name and link? https://www.simsexpressie.nl/contact.html

    Sunlit Tides is coming soon, right? I really wanted to get the Serenity Retreat venue and sadly had to work and missed the deal :(
  • SimLibbySimLibby Posts: 356 Member
    Hi @Sallyp2020,

    Number 714 (Man Cave Compilation) just started.
    In a little less than 3 months you get another chance to buy Serenity Retreat because the list rotates.

    The current Daily Deal list, which was introduced on September 23, 2014 at 12:07 a.m. UTC, includes 977 deals. After the 977th deal ends, the deals begin at Deal 1 again. A full rotation of the list takes 82 days. (See this post for background information about the Daily Deal list.)

    The numbers you want are 972 and 690 (I'm just going to quote myself a bit):
    SimLibby wrote: »
    Sunlit Tides (standard edition) is on sale once:
    • 972 ) Sunlit Tides / 1127 / 2450 / 54% / 2 hrs

    If you buy Serenity Retreat as Daily Deal (DD) as well, you basically get the gold edition much cheaper:
    • 100 ) Serenity Retreat / 1026 / 1539 / 33% / 2 hrs
    • 244 ) Serenity Retreat / 589 / 1539 / 62% / 2 hrs

    • 690 ) Serenity Retreat / 513 / 1539 / 67% / 2 hrs

    See also this post from angeljess26 regarding getting Sunlit Tides Gold much cheaper. The cheapest you can get it for is 1640 simpoints. In this post by Me1620 you will find personalized Time Zone Specific DD Trackers Spreadsheets so you know which date you can expect which item on the DD.

    I have Sunlit Tides. It is a beautiful world and it plays really nice. So have fun with it when you (eventually) buy it. :smiley:
