    Weather station for 9500¿ gives 1k exp with no multiplier
    +1 :thumbup:


    But be aware that boosting threw like that can make your unlocks delay as your moving faster than the quest line.

    great advice. no need to rush. also remember buildings get very expensive so having cash ready is faster in the long run
    *edit- you never said what level you are so i don't know if that applies*

    Ya weather station is really good it cost 9500 gives 1000xp with no multiplier and you can sell it back for 2375 that's how much it sells back for so basically works out to be buy 3 and 4th is free 9500 - 2375 = 7125 so pretty much that's the actual price of a weather station for this purpose 2375 x 3 = 7125 so buying 3 selling them back gets you enough for the fourth one not to buy it but the cost of it when bought then sold back. But if your going off just the 9500 price for bought its buy 4 sell them back and 5th is free

    Just to be clear, I'm at Level 30 so I'm not doing this to level up, jut to get donuts. Based on my multiplier, it appears the the training dummy and volleyball net are both better choices than the weather station-- about $5.56 per XP with a 22% multiplier.

    Then why does everyone recommended the weather station?

    Dunno. Maybe they didnt update the strategy as new decorations became available. Here are my numbers--

    Weather station: 9500 purchase, 2375 sell, 1214 XP
    Training dummy: 4500 cost, 1125 sell, 607 XP.

    The difference is only 0.32/XP.

    If your adding a multiplier into the equation the volley ball and target dummy are going to be better only because your precent rounds up to the closest 1% so if you have "22%" on 1 it will act like 100% and give you 2 the dummy and volley ball gives less base xp so the % looks higher but really the xp is = the weather station

    And according to these numbers your actual precent is 21.4 but on something that gives you 100 it will act as 22% and on something that gives you 5 it will act like 40 % 3 it will act as 33% and on something that gives you 1 will act like 100%

    Lol you get 7 from something that gives 5 with 22.4% that is 40% of 5 but on something that gives 3 it gives 4 which is only 33% on 2 it will give 50% giving you 3 instead and on 1 you will get 2 for 100%

    I think I might make up a chart(not sure if its actually be useful though) but if a building gives you 5xp this is how much % bonus is needed to increase the xp

    Below 20% will give 1xp for 6xp
    Above 20% below 40% 2xp for 7xp
    Above 40% below 60% 3xp for 8 xp
    Above 60% below 80% 4xp for 9xp
    Above 80% below 100% 5xp for 10xp
    Above 100% 6xp for 11xp and it'd repeat as such

    3xp
    Below 33.33% 1xp for 4xp
    Above 33.33% below 66.66% 2 xp for 5xp
    Above 66.66% below 99.99% 3xp for 6xp
    Above 100% 4xp for 7xp and it'd repeat as such

    2xp
    Below 50% 1xp for 3xp
    Above 50% below 100% 2xp for 4xp
    Above 100% 3xp for 5xp and it'd repeat as such

    1xp
    Below 100% 1xp for 2xp
    Above 100% 2xp for 3xp and it'd repeat as such

    ..... So what's the best with a ~20% multiplier?

    (Love all the maths, just too tired to follow it)

    Also I feel like my new avatar :?

    Well lets say your actual % is 19.6% or something not quite 20% your going to get slightly more xp from buying 2 volley ball courts or dummies then the weather station.

    Volley ball court and dummy give 500 base so they'll give 100 extra cause rounds up to 20% giving a total of 1200xp where as the 1000xp from the weather station won't round up cause the math is straight forward and you'll get 1196 from it

    Now this isn't 100% because 19.6% of 500 is 98 but 19.7% is 98.5 so it will act as 99 so to get 100 from 500 you'll need 19.8% giving you 600xp per volley ball court or dummy but only 1198 from the weather station

    Then you factor in the cost of the volley ball court and the dummy 4500 per and you buy 2 that's 9000 so they are 500 cheaper then the weather station for the same amount of xp
