What is Your Total Payout Multiplier From Premium Items?

Prev1
No idea. I might work it out at some point. When (if) the donut sale drops later I'll be picking up a few % items like the ambulance, Channel 6 van, Broadcast dish etc, so I'll do it then.

    That, my friend, would involve 2 things that I don't have access to:

    1 - my town (hopefully access will be back when I get home); and

    2 - the ability and desire to do math.

    Guess which one I'm hoping for?

    Mine is sitting around 14%. That adds $1 to every collection. Not much of a bonus.

    Well when you get the first, you can get a pretty good idea of the second without too much math... Just click a high payout building and see how much extra you get than what it's supposed to pay.

    I just collected from something that pays $300 and got $335... a $35 bonus on $300 is just under 12%, and 5% of that is from my star rating. The rest is premium items.

    I don't have much for multipliers, just the 3 burning bushes, which I think is 1.5%. I didn't want to buy any others because it wasn't working until recently. Oh, plus 4.5 stars, so 6%.

    Is that with or without your star rating bonus?

    I just collected from a 24hr broadcast at Channel 6 that was supposed to pay out $5000. I got $5413.
    Current conformity star rating: 4(%)

    I'm trying to remember high school maths but i think your total increase percentage is 8.26% so 4.26% from premium and 4% from star rating. Someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

    So according to my last tap at the Gulp'N'Blow (base value $100, I like easy math) and the $127 dollars I received I'd say my Bonus is sitting at 27%. Not bad.

    Now, since we can assume that high bonus levels=more premium content and in a futile effort to stem the flood of "add me i have swag but I really don't but want swaggy friends" threads that are coming I am putting my active bonus in my sig.

    A little pretentious? I don't think so, just informative if you are looking to groom your friend list towards the cash cow it could be.

    (I'm at 85 now, not planning on grooming till after xmas and coins are retired. Of course the next "event" update will have us back collecting from neighbors but hey, taken slow the list can be converted over.)

    Now, how often will I actually tap in/tap out on the list? Not nightly, that's for sure. But as the other threads have pointed out even going straight through a "juiced" list (100 friends, +5 coins per friend) is 80,000 grand per day. That's a land square (or two) and that aint shabby.

    Any other pertinents the group thinks would be useful in a signature? (best quote is going in there for sure)

    Bowling alley pays out $105, I just got $142. Looks like my total bonus is 35.24% including my current 4% conform-o-meter bonus. My Righteousness has tanked to one star since the coin collecting began.

    Well from my $75 payout I got $82 so I'm working it out to be around 13% which sucks but I plan to buy a boatload of donuts during the sale so hopefully that should pick up.

    Make sure you don't have any boost items in your inventory. Here's the list I use, sure its replicated/more complete elsewhere:

    Springfield Sign 4.50%
    Ray Gun 3.50%
    Cauldron 2.25%
    Tire Fire 2.00%
    Itchy Balloon 2.00%
    News Van 1.00%
    Piece-of-Crap Car 0.75%
    Worldwide Broadcast Dish 0.75%
    Burning Bush 0.50%
    Apple Tree 0.50%
    Orange Tree 0.50%
    Tree Swing 0.50%
    Snowball II Balloon 0.50%
    Ambulance 0.50%
    Homer's Hammock 0.25%
    Bench (Coat) 0.25%
    Green Dumpster 0.25%
    Flower Planter 0.25%
    White Picket Fence 0.05%

    I had the cauldron in storage after halloween (along with the jack-o-lanterns and spooky trees) but 2.25%? Well, now there will be a secret coven site in the woods of East Springfield.

    Channel 6 is a huge money maker. Although it doesn't shake it quite like rs876's avatar!

    But that is what drives me nuts when I forget to broadcast something. Its very irritating that the stupid dog's head floats there at the Downs but there is no reminder that you can broadcast something.
