    That is strange, I did not think about the size of the town, his town is significantly smaller even though we are both on level 59.

    I've bought all available land and get 2 minutes. From other posts I've seen there definitely seems to be a link between how much land you own and how much time you're given.

    Edit: Would like to add I'm level 59 and have a vast house farm. 5 goes so far and Maggie has always been somewhere within the farm.

    it's the size of the town that determinates it. how much land you've etc.

    I'm at Lvl 59 and have all the land and water that needs paying for with currency (a few plots in the Heights not bought) but certainly not getting 2 minutes (I think I'm getting 1:38 but can't check for another 11 hours).

    However, a good deal of the land bought most recently is still empty. Therefore, I'm assuming Maggie time is a factor of amount of land owned coupled with density of items on said land, i.e. you get more time if you have more area to scan and more buildings to search to find Maggie.

    That would make sense for me. I started remodeling and I have lots of land that is empty.

    I have all the Springfield land on my 2 towns. One has a time of 1:14, the other 1:28. My husband has all the land too, but he gets a time of 2 minutes. I think its possibly based on how many relevant buildings you have.

    I think it's also number of buildings. I don't have many duplicates of houses; maybe 4 brown houses, 3 blue, 2 purple, 1 pink etc.
    Have almost all land except for a few squares in the last strip.

    Only get 1:12 myself, but I have a small area to search.

    I get 1:11 I think (will check again when the timer's up), I'm on level 59 but I don't own all the land (the squares I can buy right now go from 42k to 62k).
    And I have all the relevant buildings except for Springfield Wax Museum. Maybe it also count multiple items? I don't have house farms, only 3 brown houses, 2 lard lads and 2 krusty burgers.
    How many repeated items do those of you with 2-minutes timers have?

    Someone in another thread suggested that maybe it has to do with the play-dough factory being far away from relevant buildings, I'll try to move mine to see if the timer changes too.

    Think there is definitely some issues with the time given as I'm level 59, have all the land in Springfield and the Heights also got all the buildings too, but only get 1:15 definitely not 2 minutes but something newly added to the game with a few bugs in it comes as no surprise.

    1:14 - all the land and water in Springfield proper, all but one strip in SH. And I have all of the buildings needed.

    I get 1:25. Still missing a couple strips of land. I read a theory in one thread that it might also depend on the number of buildings you have that can be used as hiding places. Seems as good a guess as any. That, or EA is just messing with us and it's just a random number assignment! :twisted:

    Okay, I am one of those players who believes in multiple house farms - several 8 packs of brown houses, six packs of the others. So far, I've found Maggie 5 times out of 5 with time left over. I believe my timer is 1:30. Every Maggie hide out has been a house - either in one of the brown house neighborhoods or the others. I am a level 59+ with most real estate in hand but few premium buildings (if that matters). I make sure before going after Maggie that every character is on a job and that every tax dollar is collected so that the sound isn't cluttered up with extraneous noises. Turn the sound way up and look around your houses--especially the house farms if you have them. That has worked very well for me.

    My better half, who has been playing this game for almost 2 years, owns virtually every structure that can be had but does NOT have many houses and all of those are widely separated. She has only found Maggie 2 times out of 6 tries (one was at the church and one was at the Simpson house) and is so ticked, she's given up. I tried to get her to group some brown houses but she said, "I won't change my town just for this stupid task!" So be it.

    That's my two dollars worth. Good luck finding that little twerp Maggie, whatever you decide.

    Guess it's one of those crazily complex equations that they seem to like as like I said earlier I've all the land and sea, all the building with multiples of some of them, the buildings are spread all over the whole of my Springfield but get 1:15 to find her, it would be nice to have the extra time but I'll take what they give and try my best to find her.

    I guess it's more important how much time it takes?! :lol:
