Yard Sale + 3 weeks = Possible changes in sales

Prev1
Good point. I haven't been around for the other yard sales so I don't know if they've ever changed it during the course of the 3 weeks...but that would be kind of nice.

    Well, frankly, if they want this to be like a real life yard sale, the items start out top dollar, to try to max profit, and then drop price ... We call them "mark downs" in my area. So if EA wants to follow suit, that sounds fun.

    IIT would add a bit of "game" to it if they didn't tell us when they were going to "pull" a certain item from the available group... It would be sort of like playing "chicken" --

    And if I miss it this time around, I have to wait around for EA to release it again. :)

    It ends on 4th
    people are complaining about this being it.
    it's 3 WEEKS.
    Don't you think they can change whats on sale in this 3 weeks?
    It's possible.
    Stop complaining geeze

    If that's the case, I would have hoped they would have been upfront about it. "Buy this stuff now, because there's different stuff next week" kind of thing. But asking people to assume that's the case, and not complain about the current state of affairs with no extra information, is probably asking a bit too much. ;)

    or maybe there will be another level or FP update and stuff is just available for 3 weeks only.

    Based on the recent trend of EA "updates", sale item changes would more likely be programmed into the files like Rex Banner/Lincoln rather than be an outright app update. If EA intended to swap items, it would be in the files and we would already know about it. Also, I don't believe EA has that much content for 3 weeks.

    I like this idea a lot!

    Last year they only kept the same 9 items on sale. But at least they were all new items.

    If they change out the items on a weekly basis & mix old and new stuff, then it would be great. However I don't see this happening.

    1. The balance beam & balance mat are one and the same item.
    2. There is no Mexican Apu. Unless you mean All-Ameriican Apu. Which would be strange considering he was just re-released during the July 4th update.
    3. Viking Carl is Carl's regular 24hr task. It's not a separate skin.
    4. Wolfcastle only has 1 skin (McBain). It's currently available to buy. It comes with the Film Set
    5. There is no boxing sign or poster.
    6. Willie washing his clothes is Bare Chested Willie, which was just currently re-released now in the Yard Sale

    For a sale, it's quite expensive. Where's the discount EA???

    they can do updates on the fly when they want with ingame updates

    Would have been great if there was a Gil deal on donuts to coincide with the yard sale!

    IIRC, this is what I'm missing in my priority order:

    Fruitbatman Burns Skin
    Duff Car (IIRC This is the red sports car from the Springfield 500)
    Fruit Bat signal
    Gorgeous Grampa billboard (Boxing poster/sign)

    I started playing with the first Mayan update and was unable to play around April last year.

    Before this update, Gorgeous Grandpa was at the top of my list so that was lucky! Can it really be I'm only short 4 items??

    I'm very happy to have Shauna. :)

    Thank you for clarifying. Most of the items were listed when I was still new. I wondered about Apu, but I could've sworn I saw him wearing a sombrero. Now I can clean up my list!

    Hint hint EA!
