If they DO add levels, I hope that each level works the way this one did ... The initial item at about 1,000 FP, leading up gradually to a big one for 5,000 or so. Rather than starting the next level at, say an item that costs more than 5,000 FP. It is good incentive to be able to leave a breadcrumb trail with lots of crumbs. Just my opinion.

    It depends how many they add at at time. If they add another 5, I can see it this way. If they are adding a single level, I bet it would be in the neighborhood of 5000 (higher or lower).

    If I were a newcomer starting this game I think I would be discouraged about the FP. Right now it is more important to visit neighbors than be visited (only 4 graffiti buildings gives FP when visited), so the push is to have 100 neighbors to visit. This works initially, but newcomers (and even midlevel players) can't handle 100 neighbor visits, so they are soon dropped by the neighbors. I'm going to have to drop some newcomers myself because they seem to have given up.

    I don't think people would be discouraged - you said it yourself the emphasis to visit not be visited. While yes if they collect from their buildings (they obviously need to!) then long time players don't have anything to tap. I have been dropping friends where I can't tap - but I also noted the majority of those were not even visiting me. It seems this helped fish out some players that have been inactive for a few weeks. I may have only dropped perhaps 1 or 2 that were visiting me - but I had nothing in return to tap in their towns. That's more on me, others will just skip it altogether or come back later. I don't need 3 FP, so I find it as a good reason to trim my list down. I don't want 100 friends. I also like to look at good towns as well, so tend to trim major house farmers and underdeveloped towns first.

    They don't have enough buildings if they are lower leveled so you can't assume they given up it could be cause they haven't cleared the handshakes yet. Also newcomers could handle 100 friend visits it depends on how often they play

    I still need about 2500 more points for stampy. A surprisingly large number of my friends quit playing so I purged them. I'm looking for forum regulars as friends.

    Yea got the Stamp last night to bad you have to send him on a 24hr task. Does the Simpsons house change in any way after he is done? I let him walk around until I finished tapping other neighbors so he got spot lighted for like 5 min.

    That happened to me - got stampy halfway through friends and then got 2 donuts while visiting remaining friends. The following day of 100 visits = 0 donuts. The 3rd round of visiting friends after getting stampy =2 more donuts. 4 donuts in 250 visits.
