    @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!
    so Do I . I loved when I first got it cause I love the gardening aspect of the game. It's one of my favorite things to do besides having loads of things to do with the cooling aspect.

    @Tamaek, how old is your dad? I'm 51 and my dad is 88, so I just keep getting this image of a REALLY mature Simmer :D But I suspect that you are younger and your dad is closer to my age, or at least somewhere in between me and my dad. For the record, my 88 year old dad has his own iPad and laptop, is active on Facebook daily and uses Skype to talk with the relatives in Italy regularly.

    @JoeJude16 my dad is going to turn 61 in November. I'm in my early 30's. My dad is still getting used to his new iPhone, lol. I say new but I mean the one I gave him in June. :smirk: But he is quite savvy with his sims once I taught him how to play and I got him a bunch of strategy guides (on sale at Amazon) to help him when I couldn't be there. He's come a long way and is now quite the accomplished simmer. He likes sims 3 and Mahjong.

    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 :/

    @HarleyQuinnSimmer - It is great to hear about your success with the cascades. Also make sure to keep checking all the Featured Looks because those sets are made up entirely of items from other sets. Completing other sets may help to lower the Featured Looks set, some of which are featured on the DD.

    As for you problem with the greenhouse, I had the same problem with the Golden Ticket Toy Shop not showing in my game. I fixed my problem by following Crinrict's blog on Store Lots Missing. Crinrict blog is invaluable resource to keep our games running. I included a few links to her blog on the Useful Link tab of the DD spreadsheet. You may also want to read Resetting the game to factory settings without reinstalling or Store and Custom Content uninstalls itself. Crinrict is also the creator of the S3S Browser, an excellent tool to keep track of your store purchases.

    @JovialJoy, @JoeJude16 and @Tamaek - If you have any questions about or suggestions to improve the spreadsheet, please let me know. The DD spreadsheet started out as a very basic list. It evolved because of suggestions from fellow DD stalkers. I created the time zone specific sheets based on comments made here. I value your feedback. I hope you see your rows turn green :mrgreen:

    Just recently, while going for the badge where you sim has to cut one of each kind of gem cut, my sim cut, I believe, a moonstone. I was shocked at the amount of funds it brought in when the gem was sold. Your sims will be set for life without any cheating. Let me just say it was many times better than "motherlode".

    Here is the list for the current deal and for the upcoming deals for the next 24ish hours. This list includes green deals for two venues. Deal 183 is the best price for Skylight Studio for the Performing Arts - 69% off! Deal 187 is the best price for Olympian Physique. We have a link to the official trailer below. This is one of the first venues released by the store, so it does not contain any premium items.

    Careful of "Deal" 185 as the item is offered at its regular price. This is one of the many items in the store that had its regular price reduced. We think what happen is the DD price list may be set by a database that was developed before the price reductions. The regular price was reduced but the DD price list was not updated. This could explain why some deals are at such low percent savings.

    If what @Tamaek or @JoeJude16 didn't work, i'm just going to leave it alone. i have the mentality of an 8th grade and my disabilities really fog up my brain. :/

  • AuraKnightAuraKnight Posts: 115 Member
    I've got a good chunk of BahHaus already, so tomorrow's one might be free for me, despite being the most expensive. If not, the best Deal comes up soon anyway.

    Got most of my wants coming up in the next few weeks. Free points are going well, too - mostly short ads that keep going. But I do wish the random deals were back...
  • Kittycata87Kittycata87 Posts: 20 New Member
    The frequency of the ads is improving for me at last, ever since the reset I've only been given 1 or 2 per day, today I've managed 5 so far!
    Sadly my MMAO page is still broken when logged in. I tried everything I could think of to get it working. It's bumming me out. :(
  • Jude525Jude525 Posts: 1,661 Member
    Yeah, @Kittycata87 I still don't have access to MMAO either. I think later today when I have some time to kill I may try contacting customer service. Doubt that they can help, but another voice can't hurt. And maybe I'll luck out like @Tamaek and get something free from a sympathetic rep ;)
  • TamaekTamaek Posts: 440 Member
    @JoeJude16 That's a good idea. At this point I feel like me contacting them isn't going to garner anything new, just a "didn't we already bribe- I mean talk to this one" attitude. lol Good luck, and as you say if nothing else maybe another voice that still says, "I care about this issue" will help remind them that we are still here. And you never know, you might luck out, too. That would be very cool. :wink:

    Good luck with contacting customer service! This is the message I get:

    "Thursday, 20 October 2016
    Our online services are having trouble connecting to accounts and online play.
    We’re investigating some technical problems with our online services.

    While we’re working on it, it’s possible that you:

    May have trouble connecting to EA games online.
    May not be able to log in to Origin or to EA Help.
    May not be able to complete a purchase through Origin.
    Thanks for sticking with us while we work this out."

    It's funny, I've customized my local version of the spreadsheet so much that I'll have to download a fresh copy of the original and compare them to see what I've changed/added. I don't know that some of it would work for a shared sheet because of the way I use cut and paste, but I could recommend it and see. People could always decide on their on whether or not to use those features. I especially like a tab I've created that shows a "cheat sheet" that summarizes a simple list of planned purchases over the coming months, the points per item, and a running tally of points needed per month. For example, at a glance I know I need 1,873 total points from now to November 1 and 2,915 total points to December 1.

    The way the sheet is set up, I can add or remove items on the fly and the tally adjusts automatically. The best part of this list for me is to tell me how generous I can be with gifting. Right now, because I pushed up the casino to use in a build contest, I'm in the hole a few hundred points, so I'm working on banking points. If I don't have enough by Nov 2 I'll have to reschedule the carousels. And I know all this at a glance. It's pretty cool. I also see the list of like a half dozen items I'll be getting free in November all lined up together. That's pretty cool too.

    Here's what October looks like:

    DD Price Date Item

    532 Oct 20 - 10:54 AM Skylight Studio for the Performing Arts
    58 Oct 20 - 12:54 PM Derby Delight
    370 Oct 20 - 6:54 PM Olympian Physique
    760 Oct 21 - 12:54 PM The Lucky Simoleon Casino
    39 Oct 21 - 2:54 PM Le Cirque Nouveau- Little Drama Curls Hairstyle
    37 Oct 21 - 4:54 PM Le Cirque Nouveau- Diva Plava Hairstyle
    FREE Oct 25 - 7:54 PM Atomic Age Living and Dining
    38 Oct 25 - 9:54 PM Let the Sunshine in Window
    39 Oct 29 - 10:54 AM Dame Daisy
    Tally 1,873

    EDIT:
    Well, that sucks, It was all pretty and laid out in columns when I typed it, but it just bunches up to the left when I hit Post.
  • JovialJoyJovialJoy Posts: 251 Member
    Two separate days last week, I spent hours trying to connect with someone from EA. It always timed out. :/ I hope you have better luck than I did, @JoeJude16! Let us know how it goes.

    Ok so there is some site issue that are currently being fixed. I am turning this case into a bug report for the site and we advise to keep trying until they can get a fix in place for the issues.

    Okay. Do they have any idea when it will be fixed?

    Hmm. The Date to Remember tab is already set up to be a listing of planned purchases. You have to cut and paste deals from the current rotation that you are waiting for. The price is included which would allow the tally of points. I could designate a cell at the top of the sheet to enter the amount of points you have and then calculate your ending balance. I think this might be for an intermediate/advanced user because they would have to know how to use paste special, how to use the sum function and how to accommodate adding deals.

    @Harleyquinnsimmer I'm so glad it's working now.

    Jodi, I agree. And I realize my list is just a shortened version of your other tab, but I like the minimalist aspect. I'm not looking to track percentages etc. You've already done that for me. :)

    With me, spreadsheets are all about being able to play with the data. When I first created it I was rearranging the info from tab to tab, but now I've actually got it so that I copy the row straight from you're tab to mine where the "extra" columns are just hidden. Actually, I've tweaked the Dates To Remember tab to reduce the number of steps copying info from the master sheet (also involves hidden columns)

    Heck, I'm such a geek. Not only have I found people to talk Sims with, but now I'm talking spreadsheets!
  • AuraKnightAuraKnight Posts: 115 Member
    I made up my own sheet of stuff to keep track before I realised about these ones, but there's not enough left to bother switching. Only 19 groups left (counting things like Villa Pariaso/Hacienda Luxury as one group, and not counting the $$$ stuff). Getting hundreds of points a day at the moment, too.
