Friend points

Could someone answer a few questions for me please?
1. why the number of friend points go down from 10 to 2 when visiting friends? And is there a solution to avoid it?
2. Is vandalising friends buildings better than just clicking on others?
3. There are several friends that never seem to have any available buildings to click on. Is this a bug?


  • 1. Diminishing returns. The more you visit the less you get.
    2. Depends on how much you like your friends. If they are lower leveled, it can hurt their bonus %.
    3. It’s a bug.
  • Thanks
    It seems that friend points reset after so many hours. Don't know how many.
  • 24 hours
  • Points are issued as 10, 5, 4, 2, 1. If you have 100 friends and collect from them all its 600 plus points. I believe you get 15 x10 and so on. It's clearly indicated in the friends points bar as you are collecting. There is a 24 hr timer that I believe triggers when you collect your first 10 point town. 24 hrs after that it resets.
    Unsolicited friends requests are all denied.Please PM me.
  • Thank you
  • That's a very useful chart

    I collected from Other Springfield once, but instead of the timer starting a 24hr clock, it was a glitch 30 minutes, but 30 minutes later it was a 24hr clock again. :'(
    I wanted to do it yesterday but I will invariably do it tomorrow (ish).

    @pigsick57 when you vandalise a friend, the person may suffer a sudden drop in righteousness value. When this happened, he will no longer have a nice five star and also may suffer a very small decrease in bonus %. The person need to bring up the % by using things like training walls or the Nero wall from the Casino. I ever need to put in 30 such walls to bring up the %.

    I am ok with ppl vandalising me though at the current stage. But as a beginner with little resources, I was quite annoyed. I got a couple of friends I vandalised to and fro frequently too. In fact at one point, I played by vandalising people to show that I put in the effort to explore their town and to find that item for vandalising.

    But one established game friend was unhappy and unfriended me. I even got a private message from the person 'reprimanding' me because I ruined the perfect stars and also created the need for the person to redesign the perfect town to up the righteousness.

    So it is up to you whether you want to vandalise. I welcome vandals and it showed that they put in effort to go through the town and it is amusing too.
  • I have another question about friend points I can't find an answer to:

    What happens if a friend "clicks" on one of your buildings. Does the timer reset to zero on the revenue from that building? Or does it just reset to zero when I click on the "handshake" icon to harvest as I would normally do?

    In other words, is there a benefit from a friend harvesting from your buildings (besides getting 1 FP) or is there none at all?
  • You don't always need to put training walls to fix your rating if you clean it up fast or u clean off a bunch it will go back up without spending money
  • It seemed like when I had only a few friends early on that it would go from 10FP every action to 5 and then to 4, but then go back to 10 every action (of course this is after a certain number of actions). But as I got new friends (and went up in "friend" levels), it changed to 10 to 5 to 4 to 3 to 2 to 1. Is that because I went up in levels or because I added a lot of friends? If I remove friends will it go back to 10->5->4 again?
  • has nothing to do with levels. the first 10 or so friends reward 10 points each, or the first 30 taps. than it spirals down to 1 point each tappable, as you noticed. it than resets after 24 hours, to start over. adding more friends will help, but the reward diminishes.
