Donut Farming Newbie, Advice please

Prev134
Hello

I’d like to generate some fast donuts in order to take advantage of the Date Night Mystery Boxes, but haven’t donut farmed before.

My current multiplier is 842.10% (excluding hidden multiplier)

I have all of the SH Buildings plus one extra Deluxe Condo I also have all of the Beach Hideaways.

I have 229,238,912 in-game cash.

I have a day off on Wednesday and intend on a day of laziness so have plenty of tapping time available to me on that day.

Land wise I have purchased all of the recently released land in Springfield and SH and its 80% unoccupied.

My question is should I turn on the collider for a day and burn through all of the cash buying bloodmobiles and rat trap trucks or is there an advantage I am missing in turning the collider on for say a week and buying KEM’s. I can probably log in 3 times a day to clear the KEM’s.

I’m guessing I’ll generate more donuts overall with the KEM method but is the difference so great that it justifies the extra time and donut delay?

Many Thanks in advance for any advice.

Joanne

  • My collider is on 24/7 and has been since it came into the game. I farm bloodmobiles, collect the donuts and then sell them back. I am currently near 3000%.

    If you plan to do this in one day my advise would be go rat trap trucks.
    Buy 10 days on the collider, with your multiplier just collecting buildings/sending on tasks should make
    over one donut chance per day so it'll pay for itself to keep the collider on full time.
    Find a nice clear area and then buy a load of rat trap trucks, I generally buy a rectangle of 11X4 of them as I find this is how many I can sell in one go.
    Collect the donuts generated, don't bother going for more even if you only get one, at your multiplier its more cost effective to buy more trucks.
    Sell the trucks.
    Lather, rinse and repeat for silky smooth hair and a nice haul of donuts.
  • With that much cash, turn on the collider and buy some rat traps. Keep building until you have what you want. KEM farming would be slower and you have plenty of cash, so no worries.

    Um, it'll be easy to get the valentines donuts you need. You're a 1 percenter in terms of being ready for this. Just turn on your xp multiplier (or not- - youre good either way, but this gets you donuts 5 times as fast), then buy and sell back as many rat trap trucks, bloodmobiles, or gina burning busses as it takes and itll only burn through a portion of yur millions. If you ever get to the point where youre worried about money again that'd be the time to consider shifting to the slower more sustainable qwik- e- mart bunches.
  • great thanks for the quick replies, sounds like I should have had the collider on permanently a while ago. Should've paid more attention in maths. . . :o
  • Yeah, with that multiplier you probably would always come out ahead with the multiplier even without doing donut farming.

    I have a much smaller multiplier (around 500%), and I keep it on at all times. I usually get one "level up" per day without it, so with it it's five times as much. In a couple of days I've already paid off the 25 donuts investment, the rest is all profit.

    Yeah, you should have had the XP collider on a while ago. Assuming you have SH bonus of 154% and accounting for the recommended saving $100M in the bank and assuming you're already at level 939, according to my math, you can level up 943 times, if you have the collider on and buy/sell rat trap trucks. With a little luck, you can net around 2,000 donuts.

    How the hell do you get it that high???

    Lots of real money in the beginning for donuts, I'll be honest. Then, I formulated plans to buy premium items that gave me decent percentage returns. My issue is I don't want an "inventory" town so I buy things I can hide behind buildings, trees, mountain ranges, etc. Sometimes this winds up costing me more donuts because the return might not be as good as it for some larger items that aren't easily hidden.

    My cash is over 1/2 billion so I can farm bloodmobiles multiple times a day. What's crazy is because my percentage keeps going up, so does my cash. From each farming task, I generate about 300 donuts.

    Yeah, I kinda do the exact opposite. I just get premium decs that I want that fit the vision for my town. Although, in the interest of getting my multiplier up, I'm getting a little lax on that. My Springfield looks good, but SH is a total mess.

    I finished SH a while ago but it was, hands down, a huge pain in the tushy. I loathed doing it. My town is very pretty (imo) except for the one area that is very far off to the side that has items I couldn't hide. I'd like to redo my Boardwalk area but I haven't found the time to do that just yet.

    Easy! Grind on KEM farming with the collider turned on. Spend the donuts on more multiplier, repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat.... You get the picture.
  • Dude, I love donut farming!

  • I got another question if it's OK. How do you get so much I game cash nowadays without houses?

    Blue houses lol. Seriously though, you need to collect items which give income. When an event offers a craftable with income, make as many as you can and farm the income.
  • I am a newer (started during Monsarno) freemium player. I have SH maxed ( no beach houses) and was wondering at what multiplier does it make sense to run the collided and farm?
  • I got another question if it's OK. How do you get so much I game cash nowadays without houses?

    The higher your bonus percentage, the faster you earn $$$. For instance, when I go to collect on my buildings & jobs, I earn several million dollars per each collection. The reason for that is because my percentage is pretty high. Work on getting your bonus levels up and the cash very easily replenishes itself.

  • The collider you need to do the math, depending on much money you collect and how much time you spend with the game (but it doesn't take that much). Farming it's always worth it.
  • What do you all suggest someone have in $$ and % before they start farming in order to make it profitable?
  • What do you all suggest someone have in $$ and % before they start farming in order to make it profitable?

    There's a lot of variables here. Many more than just $ and multiplier. Your level, your gameplay interval and frequency, and your SH bonus all play a factor as well. And then whether you're interested in KEM farming or rat trap truck/bloodmobile farming. And one day or ten days? Are you interested in spending all your money or do you want to keep a reserve? Do you have a lot of space to devote to this or not? Ultimately, farming will always yield doughnuts. It's about whether you consider the investment ($ and time) worth the increased doughnut yield. And whether or not you want to turn on the XP Collider.

    To answer the question about the XP Collider, you need to know how often you receive level-up doughnuts in your game. If you were to receive them five times more frequently, would the difference between these two exceed the cost of the collider? If yes, turn it on.

    If you're thinking of changing your game play it's much more about what you can invest time-wise than anything else.
