# Help figuring out my hidden Bonus Percentage - Maths!?!?!?!

99 posts Member
My visible XP is 824.71%. I am trying to find out what my total XP% is including hidden bonuses from Springfield Heights.

If I buy one Rat Trap Truck @ 15,000 base XP with the collider on my I receive a total of 842,785 XP.

I tried to figure this myself and somehow was coming up with a hidden percentage of around 300% (1124% total). This doesn't seem right because the hidden SH are only supposed to add around 150%. I did get a few extra SH buildings from the inventory glitch but nowhere near enough to explain the percentage difference. There is probably a way easier way to figure this out. What am I doing wrong?

Given the numbers you posted, you are doing the math correctly. The standard hidden bonus for the SH buildings is 153%. I'm not sure how you are getting that additional 150%

Did you account for the initial 100% that everyone starts with? There's also a table somewhere (Muhsterino probably has it in his bookmarks so check there) that will let you calculate you're exact SH bonus

You're so close with the XP calculation, you've just missed that you need to account for 100% being your original XP.

The calculation for XP should be: base item XP times (1 plus conform-o-meter plus Springfield Heights) times XP Collider.

So your situation will give you: 15,000 x (1 + 8.2471 + SH) x 5, and solving for SH gets you 1.99. Your hidden SH bonus is 199%.

Yep! That's it. Was forgetting about the initial 100%. I would love to see that table if someone remembers where it is.

Based on your figures you need to use this formula

15,000 * 5 * 9.2471 * h = 842,785

h= 1.215 = 21.5 % hidden

Oops sorry, (note to self: better not tell her I also call her Monsterino because I can't pronounce Muhsterino )
I also just noticed we can no longer view each other's bookmarks, kind of annoying.

@aidx1054 Haha, don't worry! The first part of the 'name' comes from my daughters calling me 'Muh' rather than mother. I dislike being called mother, so they decided Muh would be a better choice!
