Okay, so, I'm pretty sure I'm not the typical example but I'm super into organizing my things. Including my SSO horses. Specially my SSO horses. Makes training and purchasing new horses and the whole lot so much easier. So I made a Google Spreadsheet that I use for organizing everything. Does anyone else have any specific ways of organizing their training of horses/buying of them/etc?
Here's a blank copy of my spreadsheet, in case anyone is curious. I'm not super good at Google Spreadsheets, but it lets me calculate how many SC I'll need to purchase all the horses I want, how many horses I have in total, how many I've leveled, how many I have of which breeds and what names I have used so I can get variety. I didn't have a problem with it to begin with, but now that I have 50+ horses I can get a little confusing at times and I like seeing easily how many I've trained up and which ones are where and all that fun stuff.
How do you guys do things? Do you guys spend time on organizing or is it more day-to-day see what happens? How do you sort your stables, how to you pick which horses to train, etc?
OCD, here I am! (Honestly, I'm organisation freak -.-)
It's pretty simple with training - I always have only one horse that needs to be trained. When that horse turns lvl 15, I buy another one (or not, it depends…). So far it works perfectly
Another thing is my horse list. Once I rode around the whole map and wrote down every single horse I wanted including price, location, lvl restrictions (I wonder why I did that, I'm lvl 20) and reputation restrictions (again, admired with everything I can be admired with -.-).
Then I have a shopping list for clothing items and gear. Again with price and location where I can buy it, sorted from the most expensive things to the cheapest (and if there are more items for the same price, I used alphabetical order).
When I was more active player than I am now, I wanted to ride all of my horses equally so I created another list - One horse for "just hanging around," one horse for champs and one pony for champs. That gave me 32 combinations, so every week, I changed the horses, so no horse was just standing in the paddock (I hated that after a while, sometimes I just didn't feel like riding that specific horse so this list didn't last long…)
I used to have a stable order - in which stall is which horse - but I didn't like how the nameplates always change when you swap horses so now I only have one horse in my stable - the one I'm currently riding.
And don't let me start with inventory and wardrobe organisation…
I have created a wishlist for myself. It's just clothes and gear. I went around Jorvik, stopped in every single shop and wrote down which items of those I would like and how much it costs. Then for each place, a cluster of shops, I count the total amount it would cost me to get all of what I want in that place. I haven't used the list yet, because I used up all my jc in the Halloween shop.
I did the same list for horses too, but I closed it and forgot to save it (I don't know what I was thinking when it asked me 'are you sure you want to leave without saving' and I clicked 'yes'), so I don't have that list anymore. And I don't think I'm going to do it again. I know which horses I would like in the future and (before I deleted the file) I know that by only getting 100 sc every week and not counting in possible codes, it will take me 7.6 years to buy all the horses on my wishlist. (And that doesn't include possible new breeds)
But I don't have a list how to train horses, etc. So far I only have 5 horses and I try to change them every day (unless I decide to train one horse, then I don't change them). All but the last one I bought last weekend are maxed, and I'm not going to get a new horse until Goldchaser is maxed. But I think I might have to come up with some form of a list if I ever get to the point of owning 15 or more horses...
Oo, it's so nice to know I'm not the only one. Though I've never bothered much with sorting my gear, I just buy the things I want and have a lax goal of buying just. Everything. Makes it easy to keep track of what I'm lacking I'm fairly curious as to how all of this inventory and wardrobe organization plays out, though. I've been trying to find a way to organize my own but it's just so impossible with so many different icons and stats and so little space. Makes me super sad. But I'm glad to see there's more people than me that like this stuff. I've wondered about creating a wishlist as well at some point, but never could bother. I want too many things and found it easier to just organize the horse and set up a buying plan. So far, I'm lacking like 20k SC for all the horses I'm lacking, ugh. It's going to take a while and I actually buy SC once in a while.
I'm fairly curious as to how all of this inventory and wardrobe organization plays out, though.
Well, I don't have so many clothing items, I'm picky. I want to create some kind of minimalistic wardrobe where every item can be combined with all the others AND everything has racing stats so right now I don't fell like I'm running out of space yet I'm happy because I have more than enough clothes.
In my wardrobe 1 page = 1 kind of gear items, so I have 1 page of tops (sorted by the type - t-shirts, jackets, coats…), 1 page of… bla bla bla. Then I have one page for quest rewards that have no racing stats (so I'm pretty sure I'll never wear it) and one page for quest items (binoculars from Alex, shadow-vacuum-cleaner, magic wand…), one for glasses (I have like 4 glasses from Christmas crystal-exchange ) and one for archeology stuff. The same order applies to horse gear too (but instead of quest things there are champ medals). Simple and neat
My inventory is basically empty (except for bus ticket, pickaxe, brush, bucket, hoofpick and one pair of spare horseshoes). I do archeology every now and then so I hate when I have to stop in the middle of Dino valley and go back to Jorvik to make room in my inventory. To be honest, the new function of our wardrobe - some kind of fridge - helped me a lot because I had like 1300 haybales and they were just blocking almost oll of the space (I don't feed my horses so… Eeeh, I still have 1300 haybales, even after a year).
It looks kinda chaotic, but this so called chaos has a strict order.

I also have a wish list with stuff I want to buy with JS, horses+colours I want to buy + respective name ideas, AND a seperate list with horse names I'd like to use somewhen. I'm not even that much of an organisation freak, but it's kinda difficult to keep track in SSO since there is so much I want, LOL.
My closet looks a lot like Linda's. I have one tab for every clothes slot, same for tack. I'm slowly starting to run out of space in the shirts/dresses/pullovers/jackets... tab. I have them sorted from no/bad stats to highest stats. I really don't want to give anything away for dressing up reasons, e. g. for screenshots.
I started selling champ medals at some point since they just use up so much space and I cannot do anything with them. Quest items and other random items are usually kept in my inventory. ^^
It’s really fascinating to see how other people do this I definitively have to set up a priority-list for purchase of things as well, I think. Wishlists seem like a good idea and I might have to try organizing my things a bit more like what you’ve got going on up there if I can manage, I can never get it in a way I like. I wish there were better ways of storing stuff in SSO, though, maybe like customized tab names or something because it drives me nuts to have to hover over everything all the time.
I’ve tried to organized by stats in general, but there’s so much clothing it drives me a little nuts and I hoard everything. I try to keep my backpack as empty as possible, but keep a few things like some food and the pickaxe and my club outfit in there at all times (the brush, hoofpick, etc as well of course).

I've never really thought about organizing my training like that! I'll definitely be using a spreadsheet to organize which horses to train because not many of my horses have reached level 15 :x My closet is so cluttered right now I might clean it out too ^///^

Horses - no, I just put them in the paddock or the stable. I have so many horses and they are all max level except for the two I just bought this week. I have my favorites in the stall.
I have a lot of the horses that I want and I think I'm done purchasing the ones I want until SSO gets more. But I have almost 40 horses. I don't know how those with 80 horses do it, but I've only been playing for a year. lol
Now I do need to organize my closet....that's a whole nother story!!

Yay for organizing! I love organizing as well, but haven't done it a lot with SSO. The only thing I have organized is my wardrobe and its mostly by the type of the icon. I'm seeking for new ways to organize it... I usually do matchy-matchy outfits so sorting by colors would be a great idea, but that'd make it look like a huge mess because of different icons.
The thing I should probably do first is sell all unnecessary clothes and tack! I have like three full pages of tops and I use, what, a third of them? I'm also thinking I should sell a few horses... Even though they don't cost me money by standing around, I'd just love to have my stable filled with horses than I actually like at least almost equally. I've grown to dislike the old Andalusian template and Jorvik ponies, so I'm thinking of getting rid of them.
I could also do a list of horses I want, although I have many of them and SSO keeps adding more so... This is the reason I won't be doing a list of clothes and tack I want, because that'd be hella lot of rows in Google Sheets and that's just a no for me. xD Besides, I often just rush into clothes and tack I want to buy, I don't consider buying them for days like I do with horses.

hannahsparrowbard: Does anyone else have an issue in their home stable where the horses' names are always on the wrong door? It seems like every time I go in the names have all switched around to different stalls!
Jan 16, 2018 14:54:00 GMT 10
❆Nadia Skyborn❆: hannahsparrowbard Do you swap out your horses alot? Go to the notice board in your stable and click arrange horses. That should fix it <3

Colour ♡: hannahsparrowbard they're in different stalls because for some reason the horse your currently riding will always be in a certain stall, mixing them all up. If you arrange the stalls and then change your horse it should be fine! (:
