Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Or: All Good Animals Cross to Switch)

So this week I decided I’d try out the turnip thing. I was offered it the week before but had other plans for me bells.

I understand there’s a morning sell price and an afternoon sell price. My day starts early enough that I really don’t have time to check the morning price. Are the trackers at all useful if I can only enter the afternoon price?

They’re less useful but you can still get a decent picture with a couple of days’ data, tbh. I miss morning sometimes, too :)

Yeah, what Armando said - the trackers can be pretty accurate still even with a missed price here and there. However, the thing that is very important to the accuracy of the tracker appears to be knowing that pattern your prices were for the previous week. So if this is your first week using the tracker, and you don’t know what your prices were like last week (large spike, small spike, fluctuating, decreasing), it’s probably going to have a hard time giving you an accurate guess.

I missed mine this morning. I was only lined up for a small spike that would give me back a grand total of something like 250k profit with both armfuls of turnips anyway. Here’s to hoping someone comes though this week.

I’m hoping the same. My likely range is 50 to 121 with a high of 128. Pretty much anything above that will make me happy.

Based on 2 PMs and 1 AM of data, it looks like I’m going to be losing bells.

On the other hand, as of mid-day yesterday I’m on 14 days of isolation, so I’ll be able to get all those datas for a few cycles.

And since KK just visited and unlocked me construction tool, I can finally lay paths and actually have a clue where I really want things to be.

Ugh yeah, I’m on fluctuating for the third(?) time in like 5 weeks (other two were small spikes). The RNG gods hate me these days :(

So afternoon inputting this afternoon’s prices, I am now at 100% for a large spike tomorrow morning. The range is 198 to 594.

AM is always kinda worse, because there isn’t much time to sell, but I will try to open up for you all as soon as I can in the morning. I am EST, and it probably won’t be much before 9:00 (my time) or so. I will keep you all informed!

I better set an alarm or something :)

My last large spike was like two weeks ago, so I’m actually quite shocked I’m getting another one. Here’s hoping tomorrow’s is a better price, since the last one was like 280 or something. I mean, I’ll happily take 280, but it would be nice to see 400+. ;)

Ooh! Fingers crossed!

If it is your first week buying turnips then you just need to tell the tracker that as they use different logic for week one.

I found two different trackers - the “Prophet” seems to factor in previous weeks, but “Calculator” doesn’t. At least not visibly. And, of course, I’m basically feeding them pretty crap data at this point.

They disagree a bit on my chances for each of the different patterns but agree that I’m boned. Someone else’s island is probably my best bet.

The first week of turnips is always a small spike. Which doesn’t make you much money in any case.

(Also the Prophet is far superior imho)

ooo, I did not know that. I didn’t partake last week when she showed for the first time. I can improve my propheting now. Thank you!

After letting the Prophet know that… ok, still boned.

You get boned by turnip prices most of the time :)

Thought my price was in its way up…but crashed instead. Sorry all you turnipers.

First week you actually buy not first week she shows up AFAIK.

Okay everyone, my price this morning is 435! Currently open with Dodo code 5Q2VG. It’s 9:00 AM here, so prices are only good for the next three hours. I will try to stay open as long as I can (and re-open if there’s a communication error.)

Also, Saharah is here if you want to visit her. I just saw her in the NE part of my island, wandering around my fruit orchard.

Tipping not required nor expected. Drop by whenever you like!

Edit: also, I’ve just left dupe DIYs on the sidewalk near Nooks. There’s two ironwood dresser and one cutting board… both needed for the ironwood kitchen. Take whatever you need!

Also, feel free to buy whatever in Nooks, I don’t need any of it.

What a great island! Left an offering to the Sphinx.
