The end is nigh!

It does always feel like other Springfields are bigger than your own.

    If you have been playing for "only a few months" there simply is NO WAY you have close to all the land. The recently released land has a price of $1,500,000, $900,000, $600,000, $400,000, $300,000, $200,000, $200,000, $200,000, $300000, $400,000, $500,000, $600,000, $700,000, $800,000, $1,000,000, $1,500,000 going from left to right. That right there is 10.1 MILLION dollars.

    TEN point ONE MILLION DOLLARS just for the bottom strip.

    If you did start only a few months ago, and you are at max level (45) and have built every building that is required it would be IMPOSSIBLE for you to have bought the land, without hacking.

    Also the beach side is the LEFT side of the map. Mountains are top for reference.

    I've been playing for only a couple months. I've been quite addicted to the game, have completed all the levels, bought the standard purchasable items (though no Aspiration buildings, yet), and have most of the premium buildings available to me.

    Last night I attempted to buy another plot of land near the "top" (by the mountains) and I see there are no more lots beyond what I've already got!

    Oh!

    Along the beach, near what I think of as the "bottom" of the map, I think there's only one or two more plots, because they jump up in price from ~$70k to ~$660k,. I've still got a couple dozen plots to the "upper right", but, it seems I've filled already about 3/4 of the total available map.

    I've visited many Springfields belonging to Friends and strangers (thanks to CotC) and theirs always seem so much bigger than mine. I thought I still had a long way to go, but now that I can "see" the borders, and I know the end is nigh!

    And this has really bummed me out, this morning.

    :-(

    Reason other springfields probably feel bigger is because when you land in another springfield you land zoomed in, where in your own springfield you're probably are always zoomed out.

    Lol, had to laugh when I saw those numbers. I had a wad of cash and bought the new strip of land as soon as it came out but I defo didn't have 31 million in change....

    YES THIRTY ONE MILLION DOLLARS just for the bottom strip.

    Assuming all those values are correct (no reason to doubt you right now - I just haven't gotten there yet), that totals only 10.1 million.

    Edit: I agree that it seems improbable to have done all that in a couple of months, but given that the OP has obviously dropped a ton of real cash on donuts to get all the premiums, it is possible.

    It's just under 10 million for the bottom strip.

    Ok, so this will help me explain, thanks Hondab16tune for the reference points.

    I didn't mean to say I've purchased ALL the land, only that I've seen the borders, or at least what I *THINK* are the borders.

    If you picture my city as sort of L-shaped going along the mountains and beach: I've purchased all the land I can a couple of strips wide running parallel to the mountains. From the left (beach) to the right (all green), I can't buy another lot to the right of my top-right most plot of land. There are plots (likely many) to the bottom of that leading away from the mountains, that I can purchase.

    Along the beach, I've got to a point where the next available plot jumps in price from about $70,000 to $600,000, which I *thought* (possibly incorrectly) meant I was close to the end. I dunno, maybe there's two or three strips beyond that?

    When I drag out into the "fog of war" area of the map, I do see about 1/4-2/3 is still out there filled with debris to clear up, that I haven't purchased yet.

    I have spent money on the game, I like to support things I like, so I am premium. I don't care to say how much, but I'll admit the word "Boatload" was involved. I spent several weeks when I first started just earning in-game cash and buying land. It seemed a wise thing to do. I didn't get it all, but I got more than I needed at the time. I play a lot (checking in on my cell or iPad several times, daily) and carefully manage my characters' productivity vs. quest lines. I have found lots of friends and visit them daily for FP (when available), $$, and XP. For the last few weeks, my town has reached a point where I'm generating upwards of $400k per day. I don't hack (believe what you'd like, but honestly, I wouldn't even know here to begin), but I do visit forums, wikis, fan sites, etc learning play strategies, ideas, suggestions, etc.

    Anywho, the point of the thread was just it struck me how bummed I felt thinking of the "end" of the game. LOL I'm sure I have a lot to go and experience (I'm looking forward to my first Halloween and Christmas events).

    P.S. Anyone who cares to stop on by, send me a friend request, info's in my signature.

    The land doesn't "end" until you reach the darker green areas with ZERO debris. Also the land only becomes available for purchase if an adjoining piece is purchased. From where you are at by your description, I think you have 2 more strips to go southward (think southwest if looking at the screen) and several to go eastward. I think you will be fine, as long as you don't "over decorate" every thing in your town.

    I am a premium player as well and have gotten EVERYTHING that has been available to us from day 1 (minus a 4-5 small limited time items due to me having got bored and not really checking on the game as much during a brief period) and a few Valentines ones that I didn't get because my town was gotten into by someone else when that was an issue and my luck it was during last Valentines event. I have got everything neatly organized, and still have TONS of room after a minor redecoration.

    I have the same feeling when i see plots of land very big and still have all premium buildings and enough empty land...
    I have to squish to fit and always have the feeling not having enough land for futher updates...

    My plan now is on my minigolf plot i have i piece land for Christmas because it will fit with that, and a piece of land upstairs for Halloween.

    Hopefully i can make it fit, Krustymansion was tricky because no room for big landmansion and also my housearea is full so lots of changesto get it there but i think the cabin fits with krustykamp and crazycat womans house fits in the woods with the purple mountain :wink:

    Don't worry about size so much -- it's the girth that makes it really impressive.
