Righteousness, 1 star... ****!!

I'm surprised this is the first time it's happened to you. For the rest of us, it goes down about once a week. Also, how do you forget his name? Not a big fan of the show? Are you aware this is based on a show?

    Send Snake or Fat Tony to penitentiary - that will increase your righteousness level. I had the same problem when friends didn't do the graffiti.

    I'm curios what benefit does the rating give you? Is it the goal having a 5 star town or is their more to it then that?

    Yeah nice sarcasm Dromtsul... I love the show but here in Sweden they air it only on a pay channel. Yes I'm aware it's based on a show, I don't live under a rock

    Thank you GoldnMan.

    For me it gives personal satisfaction having 5 stars, I'm a perfectionist.
    And it gives a 5% boost to all money (and xp but not sure about extra xp)

    For me, I like the idea of having a 5 star town more than the actual benefit. For every 1/2 star, you get a .5 % boost in XP/$$ for tasks and building collections. Personally, I just like seeing my star rating full, not the extra $1 it gives me per $100 earned (lamely, I like game "achievements"). I don't have a problem fitting in extra duplicate Kwik-E Marts, Krusty Burgers, and Gulp-N-Blows. I have all the land it's very easy to have extra buildings fit in. Some people don't want 2 of one building in their Springfield, or just don't care about the star rating. It's just a personal preference with just a small added bonus.


    I did notice my righteousness go way down today for the first time in a while.

    OOhh good to know about the bonus. Might want to start paying attention to that.

    If you've got 5 stars and are receiving a 5 percent bonus, you're getting $5 per $100 earned, not $1 (that would be 1 percent).

    Oops, I didn't lay it all out there. I very much understand basic math. I was referring to the $1 from going from 4/4.5 stars to 5, which is where most players find themselves.

    I do think think that is accurate. My rating went to 1 star. I sent both on their 24 hour jobs and it didn't change. I cleaned graffiti from 4 buildings and it went to three stars. Then I stored the building and replaced it. Even though both are back on the street, my rating remains at three stars.

    Mine also went down today.

    When mine drops I now use my Xmas friends. Go into a town, spray paint 1 building, leave town, go back into town & clean their building for them. Every building cleaned whether mine or theirs gives half a star back to Righteousness.

    I've noticed the rating doesn't seem to change until after you exit the game and restart it. I've never seen it change during the game.
