  • Seemed like the least I could do since it was your posts at the start of this thread that pointed me to ajaxpost's description of CYS mechanics and puzzlezaddict's posts about the changing CYS discount. Plus you're one of the maintainers of the DD spreadsheet, which I borrowed info from when I first started collecting my…
  • If your friend owns Le Cinema Plumbob already, then they should be able to complete March 2013 Compilation for free via CYS. If they have not yet grabbed March 2013, I would be curious to know what the Store reports the percent owned (orange bar at top of compilation's Store page) is with just the Cinema so I can get an…
  • Sadly, the only ways to get Le Cinema Plumbob at a discount are through CYS on March 2013 Compilation or through Make Me an Offer (entirely random).
  • I have finished documenting the small sets and have posted my work here. List is still a work-in-progress. Still missing - many combo sets - compilations - all Featured Looks - some venues available through a set's CYS It should still be a good reference for everything else. Documenting paths for what's missing will come…
  • While prices changing is definitely a possibility, I think the more likely reason for the discrepancy is rounding error. This thread was started in 2018, which afaik was after they stopped updating the Store. I mentioned in a previous post that most of my findings when double-checking the paths from this thread are math…
  • Congrats! And thank you for confirming my math (something I couldn't do after I finished World Inspiration Compilation, which gave me the Rock Wall towards MCC)
  • Managed to grab Serenity Retreat earlier today. Mildly annoying that the Store doesn't credit you with owning Sunlit Tides Gold if you buy the standard world and venue separately, but hopefully it'll at least stop offering me the Gold version in MMaO. Considering all the MMaO deals I've been accepting lately, it's looking…
  • While looking into whether it was worth it for me to grab the Towel Drying Stand earlier, I came across a few errors in the suggestions for the Storybook sets. My corrections below are a mix of good news and bad news. Storybook Bathroom Set, 39/228 (saves 22 SP) - DD #026: Porcelain Tub (30/54) - DD #560: Towel Drying…
  • Glad to have my laptop working again. A power outage about 3 weeks ago killed it's battery, which was already living on borrowed time. I was able to keep an eye on the DD Store page and grabbed a couple of my remaining targets, but missed a couple others. I've seen every standard and Gold world buyable with SP on MMaO at…
  • It took buying all 5 of the Live, Laugh, Love items off the Daily Deal rotation but finally the Store is saying I own 1% of March 2013 Compilation. After doing the math, I think there was some kind of mistake made when they entered values for items in Le Cinema Plumbob when adding the venue to the Store. I don't think it…
  • I originally made it as a resource for my CYS calculator spreadsheet, but decided to release the data portion for others to use. Feel free to list my spreadsheet at any time. I have no intention to finish filling the Discontinued tab anytime soon, though like I said in that post: I am willing to give some people editing…
  • Yeah, it's 4%. As it turns out I should have done the math before asking to see if there was more than 1 possibility.
  • I think you're forgetting to factor in the changing CYS discount because I'm getting the following: Ultra Lounge Kitchen: ~288 (~80 for CYS) Faire Folk Furnishings + Attire: ~348 (~85 for CYS) Otherwise your math matches what I'm getting with my spreadsheet. Great work! (Note: I did not try looking for alternatives. I only…
  • Ooh, what percent does the Store say you own of Best of 2012 with just the Grill? I'd love to get more info to help me narrow down the exact value of the Greenhouse venue set
  • I managed to wake up and grab both the deals I was aiming for earlier! For a mere 45 SP I was able to claim all of the following: - Classy Chassis Dining Chair (20 SP) - Provence (5 SP) - World Inspiration Compilation (0 SP) - Cante Captivating (from WIC) - Adventurous Life! (from WIC) - Worldly Goodies (from WIC) -…
  • The Discontinued tab of my spreadsheet only lists things that really are no longer available, like the branded content. Lesser known freebies and single items that are still available to get now are listed in the Catalog tab. Definitely some great info in that thread. Don't forget to read through more than the first few…
  • The batch of deals I've been eagerly anticipating, yet dreading. Why did Classy Chassis Dining Chair and Provence have to be at these times this cycle? Now I have to choose between trying to pull an all-nighter or hoping I can wake up extra early to grab them, particularly Provence (it's the first link in a chain of…
  • Depends on what else is in that deal. If you're not interested in some of the other items, or there's a set you already have a CYS price for, then maybe not. I tend to seriously consider anything that's 20% off or more.
  • I popped into the Store to grab a DD and saw I had been gifted some items from my wishlist. Thanks @Cogitotoro In my experience anything that you can buy from the Store with SimPoints (except the My Page Goodies) has a chance to show up in MMaO. So the only worlds that won't show up are Barnacle Bay and both versions of…
  • Definitely possible to get Midnight Hollow Gold from MMaO. I've seen it a few times (maybe 3?) while stalking MMaO but haven't had the points to take any of the deals. With so many things in the Store, waiting for a specific item to show up in MMaO can take forever.
  • Looking at my upcoming purchase plans, I've got a similar problem looming with Provence coming up in about a week. In fact, Provence might not be at a reasonable time for me until mid-August
  • In my experience the CYS price is recalculated from scratch based on the items you own and the currently active price of the set (in the order of active DD > weekly sale > regular price) rather than being a fixed number of SP that's subtracted. So if a set that is part of the weekly sale becomes the active DD then the CYS…
  • For there to be two versions of an item with different patterns they would have to upload a new version with a new product ID. Since none of The Monarch Suite's items seem to have a new product ID I'm guessing they don't have new patterns. I wouldn't blame you though for waiting on the input of someone who actually owns…
  • Congrats on completing the Best of 2012 and January 2012. Having the Grill makes the percent less helpful for my Greenhouse value estimation, but I might still be able to get something out of it. Meanwhile I'm anxiously waiting for Provence to come up in a couple weeks. My CYS on DD #152 should be only 5 SP, and finishing…
  • I see the cheapest Greenhouse deal will be up in a few hours. @fantuanss I would be interested in what the Store reports your owned percent is for Best of 2012 after buying it (the bar at the top of the compilation's page), and also your new CYS price if you do not yet have enough for it to be free
  • I bought the Flowered Crown earlier today to get one step closer to owning March 2013 Compilation and I continue to be dumbfounded by what my calculations say Le Cinema Plumbob is actually worth. Here are my purchases so far along with the corresponding calculated SP worth of March 2013 and Cinema| Item | Item Value |…
  • I too choose to install separate sets rather than mixed compilations, for the same reason. I don't mind the extra installations if it means I can find related items easier when I want them. --- I took some time over the last couple days to double-check some CYS calculations on a few of my planned purchases, and I'm glad I…
  • Considering I was replying to emorrill's question about when HHDRS was coming up, owning HHKS seemed implied. I could/should have tagged them to make that more clear, but it didn't occur to me at the time
  • Haute Hacienda Kitchen Set + Haute Hacienda Dining Room- Artful Adobe Fireplace should add up to enough total SP value to make Fabulous Fiesta! free: 883 (Kitchen set) + 162 (fireplace) = 1045 Unless there's an error in either my data (possible, but unlikely since I just double-checked it) or my calculation (not…
  • Haute Hacienda Dining Room will come up on the following DDs DD #908: Haute Hacienda Dining Room Set (218/675) DD #943: Haute Hacienda Dining Room Set (383/675) DD #084: Haute Hacienda Dining Room Set (383/675) Although to get the same content for fewer SP, I would recommend the following alternatives: 1. If you already…
