    @Tamaek and @JoeJude16, I attempted a spontaneous visit to the movies in the middle of last week. It did not go well... After deciding what movie I wanted to watch, the ticket agent told me it was only available in 3D at that time. Not realizing what would happen next, I went along with it. Then the register showed nearly $32 for two tickets! :open_mouth: No, thanks. I politely walked away.

    Seriously! For that much money, I could pay for Netflix for four months. I could buy at least six movies. I could buy a new game. :no_mouth:

    @Tamaek , when Origin was having a sale recently I bought Monte Vista, and soon after that Barnacle Bay suddenly became a free download for me! I'm not sure if it was my buying Monte Vista that caused it, but it happened around the same time. Check the Barnacle Bay page - maybe it will happen to you too!

    Oh wow, I went to check BB on the off-chance it was downloadable for me, and it was! The only thing I can think of is that it's related to the fact I recently bought the Poseiden's Fury item and already had one of the other decorative items from the set. Thank you for the heads-up! :)

    @JovialJoy you're welcome.
    And lol to the movies, here 3D is a little more expensive but not that much,I don't think anyway (only been to one 3D movie). Consession stand sounds a little cheaper here, but it depends which theatre you go to (chain or not). It all depends on what they call small, medium, large or bigger too. The two times I've been to the movies here (not a chain theatre) I spent about $30 for adult ticket, popcorn & drink combo (large I think) and a choc top (ice cream). @JoeJude16

    Thank you to those who mentioned the cascades, I was able to get a bunch of them in the past week such as the animals abound , kids 2010 bohemian garden, stones throw greenhouse, April 2010, compilation, front row center bedroom, and I have just about every single thing in the child development section for the buy/build tab. So thank you very much. It's been hard trying to save up credits for those discounts especially when I have no money what so ever but I was able to get a lot of the sets at a discounted price thanks to this group so thank you very much :)

    The only problem i've been having recent'y is for some reason my stones throw green house showed up in my game and now it wont ive tried installing it numerous of times but I still cant be able to find it in the collections tab or in the hobbies tab :/
  • TamaekTamaek Posts: 440 Member
    @Kittycata87 sweet that you got it!

    @JovialJoy that sounds about right for where I am, too. For our anniversary my husband and I usually go to a movie because we don't get to often with my kids health conditions (diabetes and autism). We usually skip on popcorn and drinks and just go to dinner at a diner after instead because snacks are just so overpriced.

    @angeljess26 I would also like to thank you for posting the list, very helpful. ^_^ You guys really do good work. And thank you to @Me1620 for updating the spreadsheet (I'm Eastern and very pleased.)

    And @HarleyQuinnSimmer try deleting your cache files. They are located in the documents folder where you find your saves, music, worlds and so on. Delete CasPartCache.package for CAS parts (anytime you add new create a sim parts), delete compositorCache.package for new Buy/Build objects, delete scriptCache.package if you add or change script mods, delete simCompositorCache.package for new sims and default skins. Anytime you install or uninstall something delete the associated cache files and then relaunch the game. Hopefully that should help you with your problem. If it doesn't let me know and I'll see if I can't figure something else out.

    Thank you so much. I'll keep that in mind. And I did delete those Caches I'll let you know when I get back on the game later on if it worked.

    Ugh, i missed the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery. :'( I thought it wouldnt come until December.

  • TamaekTamaek Posts: 440 Member
    @HarleyQuinnSimmer You're welcome and I hope it works.

    @fmil You didn't miss the one you wanted. The Delisciously Indulgent Bakery does appear at its lowest price in the rotation in December. Today looks like was its highest price.

    @fmil, it was the most expensive occurrence of the venue on the DD--if that makes it any better? At first I woke up, and I was like "Oh no, I missed this!" But then I saw that angeljess26 included that it was most expensive at this point in the rotation. According to the spreadsheet, it's cheapest at 855 SP on deal #771. That's 228 points less than it was today. But I understand it is a long time to wait. And the glitchy site updates from last week are what threw off the rotation--since you said you were expecting the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery to appear in December. Either way, I'm sorry you missed it! :(

We usually skip on popcorn and drinks and just go to dinner at a diner after instead because snacks are just so overpriced.

    When I was growing up, movie tickets were seriously half as much as they are today. And I'm not even that old! After the whole event, my boyfriend and I were pondering how kids can even afford to go out on dates any more these days--unless they're working or their parents are wealthy. Ourselves, we'd went to dinner at a moderately priced restaurant before the movie, each ordered one of the cheapest menu options, only bought one drink ... and just with that, we'd spent about $35, including the tip. So a dinner and movie date is now a $50-$70 event? :open_mouth: I mean, that would've been like three months of allowance for me.

    @angeljess26 and @Tamaek, we'll usually skip the concession stand and sneak in some candies and soda from the dollar store. As @JoeJude16 said, that's really where they make their money. A couple of years ago, I went back home and took my little brother to the movies for his birthday. And although I'd bought him dinner beforehand, he was "dying" of thirst at the theater. So I broke down and bought him a bottle of water. It was like $2.75! I nearly choked.

    I got confused for a second, I thought i missed the big deal. Thanks for clarifying. <3

    @JovialJoy Yeah, i was waiting for deal 771. It is a long wait but i dont mind waiting if it means i could save some simpoints. :D

    Looks like the weekly specials didn't update again. Hate to be a dooomer, but this does feel like it's been turned off a bit.

    At first I thought that but then I wondered if maybe the time that it rotates was also thrown off course by the reset. Only way to know is wait and see I guess but I agree that it doesn't bode well, at least right now it doesn't.

    @HarleyQuinnSimmer are you talking about the venue or the SwiftGro Gardening Station? Some people feel that re-installing content without uninstalling it first can cause problems. I don't know either way, just passing this along. So if it's the station you may want to use the launcher and scroll through installed content and manually uninstall it. You may have to do this multiple times since it will be in there for each time that you installed it. It's a really bad "feature" of the software. I really can't believe they never threw in a simple subroutine to check whether the item was already installed before proceeding.

    Like I said, there are two opinions out there, but if you are still having trouble it may be worth a shot.

    @Tamaek you're welcome for the list update
    @JovialJoy that generally sounds like the price of bottled water if not more here.
    And we've been known to buy stuff at the supermarket and sneak it in too, depends on what we want.

    There was nothing to buy again today. Some minor twitching in my left cheek, but otherwise I think I'm handling the withdrawals pretty well. There's a DD first thing in the morning tomorrow, so I should be back to normal soon. Friday I'll finally get Skylight Studio and Saturday Lucky Simolean, along with a handful of other stuff. It'll be a pricey weekend, but very productive.

    Funny thing is I didn't have much interest in the casino until I saw a contest for a dive bar build. The guy running the contest wants gambling in the bar, so I need some slot machines. Getting the casino Saturday isn't the best price, but the next green price will be too late for the deadline.

    And, unless the ads get more friendly, the carousels will have to wait til the end of January. Gosh, I miss the days when I could get a couple hundred points in a night.

    it was weird the sunflower and the venue showed up but the swiftdro gardening station wouldn't show up at all. it's weird. i have untinstalled it and reinstalled it a few times already and still hasn't appeared in the game
  • Jude525Jude525 Posts: 1,662 Member
    @HarleyQuinnSimmer I hope you get it sorted out. I love the gardening station. It makes gardening so easy. And a hint, I planted a little grove of money trees, and with no actual cheating my sim got very rich!
  • TamaekTamaek Posts: 440 Member
    @JoeJude16 that is exactly what my dad did. Now his sim is ridiculously wealthy and holidays every summer in France, lol.
