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

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 :joy: )
    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!

    So close, tapperino, but the SH bonus is added to the conformometer, not multiplied. So your formula should be 15,000 * 5 * (9.2471 + h) = 842,785
