    Wow, that's a crazy amount of cash. Thanks for doing the research. I don't think I would have the patience to do this since my game crashes constantly.

    When I went on this morning, the first houses were giving me exactly $50. Someone explain that one to me please!

    I only had time to do a dozen or so and they progressed to $62 or something like that.

    I know people will tell me this is made up as it starts at $17 but I swear its true. Only time I've noticed it happen.

    It's awesome how much money you get from this now. If I was visiting friends while my people were on 1-hour tasks, I used to stop visiting so I could get everyone on new tasks. But recently I've reversed that trend and kept with my friends, which pays out way more than the 30 or so people on 1-hour tasks.

    Your math proves it.

    That's awesome! I hope it sticks around even after the Christmas Season. But getting a little nervous that new buildings might get up into the million dollar range. :shock:

    Interesting. Visiting once a day is enough for me, I don't think I could handle three back to back rounds.

    Yeah, I felt a bit masochistic today. Just wanted to know the max you could get. If it would have crashed, I don't think I would have given it another try.

    Wow, I'm definitely going to try this! I just hope that it doesn't crash on me. It'll give me something else to do while watching TV.

    that's a great amount of cash. I might try it myself after the holidays when the game is more stable ( and I have a LOT of time to kill)
    but for now I'm happy with the 30k or so I'm getting now

    Thanks for putting all this info together and linking the related threads!

    I was going to write down how much each tap earned today to try and figure out what determines the rate of increase. That is the only piece of info we are still missing. My first collections were worth $20, $22, $25, $29, $29, $31, $32... and then the game crashed.



    Edit: fixed typo

    I tried that a few days ago, but I couldn't find logic in it. Here is a little sample. 4x 35$, 1x 38$, 4x39$, 2x 40$, 1x 45$, 2x 46$, 1x 49$, 1x 50$, 2x 56$, 2x 65$. Perhaps it has to do with what type of building you tap. I always go for the better buildings, but sometimes you have to go for a brown house or the Simpsons mansion. I guess there is no way to prove that.

    So just to be 100% clear... When you go to your list of friends and it says daily actions 3, do you tap 1 thing, exit out, and then re-enter that town, or do you tap one thing and then move on to the next town and eventually cycle through all 100 3 times?

    You have to exit the town, enter another, tap something there, then come back to the first.

    The key is that you cannot minimize the game (look at email, the forum, or any other app), have an incoming phone call, return to your own town, OR CRASH during this entire process... or you start back at zero bonus.

    Unfortunately crashing is probably going to be an issue, but I'll give it a try. Does it matter what building you press? Obviously I'm going to go for christmas ones, but will the Simpsons house pay out less than a white or brown house?

    I have about 30 friends and I have yet to get all the way without the game crashing.

    The bonus only goes up, never down, but it can start at different amounts ($16 and up) and increase at variable rates. Sometimes it jumps up $10 from one town to the next, other times it stays unchanged for several visits in a row. Could be random, but I bet it's not.
