    Top 5 Updated as of 7/23/2017

    1. Festoon to the Honeymoon- 19 SimPoints
    2. Upper Left Untamed Wall Ivy- 25 SimPoints
    3. Upper Untamed Wall Ivy- 25 SimPoints

    Thank you to @LillaGrisen for telling me how to save my wishlist order. It worked great! And a quick question to anyone and everyone. I want to get Island Paradise but I've heard it messes with your game. Extreme lag, crashing, etc... If anyone has this game can you tell me if it's okay to get or if I should just avoid it and get University Life instead.

    The world (Isla Paradiso) that comes with Island Paradise is a nightmare (lags can be extreme), other than that, had no issues with the rest, not even with houseboats or taxiboats on other maps. You should get the one you want and going to use more.

    Hmm, my wishlist is a huge mess at the moment since I've only just begun to add items to it after thinking I'd like to own the store. I'm sure it's impossible, but maybe I could get some advice on its organisation?

    Top Five and link to Wishlist page below:

    1. Edwardian Expression Kitchen Set - 407 SimPoints

    2. Back 2 Skool - 693 SimPoints

    3. Street Couture - Kids and Teens - 475 SimPoints

    4. Street Couture - 725 SimPoints

    5. Luxe Kidswears - 1,000 SimPoints

    Hiya! I've been away for more than two months, but I just put the game on the side, and only recently got back.
    I've updated my top 5

    Btw. How are you all? What's new? :)

    @ninaumi I'd say it's been pretty quiet here for the last couple of weeks. I don't know if you've noticed, but the ads have been removed as they were not paying out and EA claims that they're working on fixing that issue. No ads = no gifting (with the exception of that one ninja) = no activity in the gifting thread.
    On a brighter note, @lauravonawesome has given us this ironically accurate depiction of most TS3-simmers to entertain us in the meantime :mrgreen:
    1rzksn.jpg

    @justinbieberffl At the moment you only have sets in your WL. While people may feel inclined to gift you entire sets, most people don't have that kind of sp banked, especially as the ads are gone at the moment. It would be wiser to split the sets (that can be split up) into individual items, so that people can send you smaller gift which will count toward you CYS-discount on their respective sets which in turn may be cheaper for both you and the gifters.
    While I'm at it I might as well recommend heading over to the DD-thread and check it out; it can be quite the time- and sp-saver if you're planning on joining the "Own the Store"-club :smile:
    Edit: I almost forgot! If you want to have sets in your WL, try to make sure they don't overlap. "The Monarch Suite", for one, contains a great deal of items (if memory serves right) from the "Indulgent Living + Luxe Loungewear"-set, and the "Double Down Poker and Roulette Bundle" is actually part of the "Up the Ante Compilation".
    Don't worry about it ;)

    Welcome to all the new (to me, at least) people :)

    @justinbieberffl To add to what @LillaGrisen mentioned, items from many of the sets you listed come up on the daily deal rotation, which can lead to sets being free or very cheap later on and will help you get the most value out of whatever SP you have.

    This thread has all the info you need, including spreadsheets to find out when a certain deal comes up in your time zone. If you're like me and your time zone isn't listed, pick the closest one and figure out what time a particular deal is at for you.

    Worth noting: you can't gift DD or sale items to other players; you can only buy them for yourself.

    I really hope the ads come back soon. Not being able to send you guys nice things takes so much of the fun out of it for me.
    I own the store, as of 12/16/17!| Thank you | Friends?| DD Rotation & Sales Help

    Thank you so much to Little Miss Ninja - @charlotteprice for all my wonderful gifts my sims won't know what's hit them with all their fineries :P Also if I haven't said so before @lilrosaleen thank you for the stunning pretty pearls outfit and @taratownie thank you for the mayflower hat it will be used for many-a-feast party ;)

    So I basically smashed up my laptop by accident, my knee connected the side of my laptop and it went flying, it's still usable but the screw holder near my charging port broke and my charging port is now loose :\ but it's why I haven't been around so much plus it's school holidays so it's all busy, busy, busy lol.

    Also for Isla Paradiso - i've had no problems as of yet with lag and that's saying something for what laptop i'm on lol
  • ninaumininaumi Posts: 330 Member
    What a pleasant surprise from @charlotteprice :smiley: It's a nice feeling now that I know I can pay back with creations too, since it seems that they don't offer ads on store page in my country.

    Top 5 updated. :)

    @ninaumi welcome back. :)

    at the moment, ads are disabled for everyone as they are thoroughly broken. no word on when or if they'll be reactivated~ the most recent response from EA_Mai is:

    Hi everyone,

    As you have already noticed, the option to watch ads is not available right now.

    We are investigating the issue we have been talking about in this thread. We didn't want you to watch ads and not get the SimPoints in return, so we have temporarily disabled them while we look into it.

    I will keep you updated in this thread with any new information.

    Thanks for you patience,

    -Mai


    Also just logged into my store account and noticed that my top 5 have again fallen victim to the sneaky ninja tactics of @charlotteprice ~ you've even made jazz age wear free at dd 750, so extra thanks are in order; what a lovely surprise, and thank you so much! :heart: :cookie:

    new top 5 coming soon in signature!

    Thank you all for the helpful threads in the store section:
    First and foremost, thank you @Reachsims for starting this thread, because without it, I wouldn't have come close at all obtaining store items without the help of this amazing thread.
    Thank you @brandi22 for the new member welcoming thread you have in the store section, because without it, I wouldn't have known how to become a member.
    Thank you @rosemow for you guidance in brandi22's welcoming thread for newbies (and just in general); you're very helpful with not only the Sims 3 community but also with the Sims 4 community. The simming community appreciates you greatly!
    Thank you @Franny for the thread about Sims 3 additional store items! That thread was my guide to adding individual items to my wish list. Additionally, thank you for the thread about the Animal Abound cascade.
    Thank you @pegasas1993 for the thread that showed all the FREE store items, alongside The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection (which I got earlier this year)!
    Thank you @LadybugLeslie for the Cascades thread! It was very helpful. I didn't go through it until much later and it came of great use for me when it came to DD rotation.
    Thank you @vampyrelucia for the Complete a Set thread. Because of the thread, I was able to knock off set after set.
    Thank you @Me1620, @rnramey, @ajaxpost, @Jude525 and all other staff (old and new) for maintaining the DD thread. Because of this thread, I saved a significant amount of simpoints and discovered the Spreadsheet, CYS calculator, and so much more!

    If I missed you, just know that I'm appreciative of EVERY last one of y'all in TS3 Gifting/Store Community. Thank y'all once again. Best community ever! <3

    Yes, but I wasn't getting ads even before that. :( I just had one, which gave me 10 SP.
