    Just another thank you! I've been trying to figure out for a while now why a couple of my ratings stay low despite progressing in the game. Not buying a bunch of Krusty Burgers, but I'll grab a small variety of extra houses.

    This is a *fantastic* post! Thank you so, so much. I intuited that my Gluttony rating dropped meant I needed more dupe restaurants, but I thought that might have been triggered by a small land grab made to accommodate Buddist Temple/Learning Annex/Mt. Carlmore/Magnifying Glass. Bummed about my loosing my 5-Star rating, but I can't really see getting anymore Krusty Burgers or Gulp N Blows right now. They would be so close to the others that it would look ridiculous. And I already have two Lard Lads, so that's not really an option either.

    Anyway, this is a super useful post. THANK YOU!!

    Interesting information, I'm too tired to decipher and process it tonight.

    Although, I will say....I am not littering my town with 16 restaurants!

    I have to count but I don't think I have 28 houses and yet my meter for that doesn't move. It's the stupid gluttony that took a nose dive after this update.


    Yours too? Yesterday I dropped for gluttony to 2 stars, this morning I have 4. I already have 2 GNB and 2 krustyburgers, so i only would buy more if there is some more land :evil: ,

    Also, to the Righteousness portion: mine just randomly dropped from five stars to one. I visited neighbors earlier today, vandalizing, but that didn't seem to do anything to it. It had been a while since those visits and since anyone had been to my town and vandalized buildings for me to clean up.
    It really just seems like there is at least some (major?) element of randomness to this one.

    Thank you very much for this indeed.

    I am cranky that EA is forcing "gluttony farming." C'mon guys: either provide more restaurants or lower the requirement.

    Me too. Thanks for the time it took for the post, and, "Dear EA: A town full of Krusty Burgers and Kwik e Marts isn't fun for me. "

    Bet they'll lose sleep over that. :wink:

    ...and another follow-up. Less than 24 hours, another drop. Haven't visited anyone since last night (and everyone is still in 24-hour lockout) and have cleaned my buildings a couple times today. Dunno if it helps, but there ya go.

    One way is to surround each with a road to simulate a drive through. You can add some pavement around them and give them dumpsters. Also the buildings are good to hide stuff with. I have a ton of white fences and other stuff acquired from misery boxes. To use them all and not clutter up the place I hide them behind my extra dupe buildings.

    Using this trick helps me maintain my 5 star in the other categories.

    Yeah, mine seems to drop at completely random times. Even when I've been actively spray painting/cleaning.

    Bought more land, added another Lard Lad, 5-Star rating restored. I am such a sucker. :oops:
