Stupid question of the day regarding multipliers and XP collider

I researched through the topic catalog, but was unsuccessful on finding my answers, so I'm bringing my questions here.

1. my multiplier is listed at 303.5%, and I have all Beach hideaways out and maxed out. It looks like my effective multiplier is 400% on cash and 520% on XP. Is this imbalance of cash/XP typical?

2. Does the XP collider work on the pre-multiplier cash and XP, or post?

Thanks for your time.

    If you have any of the Springfield Heights buildings, they have a hidden XP multiplier. A lot of your questions are answered in the first 3 posts in this thread:

    I don't think I made myself clear. I understand the hidden multiplier, and my SH buildings are out for the hidden multiplier. My question was regarding the multiplier for cash and XP being unequal. I expected the multiplier to be equal for both cash and XP. Am I wrong?

    Hidden Xp from SH is Xp only not $
    Collider is 5x Xp only not $
    The normal max hidden Xp is 153%. So, 303.5+153= 456.5% bonus on Xp. (and 303.5% bonus on $)
    Quick check (+/- 1% error):
    Write down current Xp from Xp bar
    Place 1 Blue Dumpster ($1000, base Xp 100)
    Write down new Xp
    Subtract to find total Xp gain
    If Xp collider is ON, divid by 5 (otherwise skip this step)
    Subtract 100 (base Xp)
    The result is your Xp "multiplier" (more correctly, bonus)

    Thank you for your reply. My mistake was not understanding that some bonuses are for XP only. I appreciate the time and effort of an honest, considered reply.

    Also, Beach Hideaways are not hidden multipliers, and apply to both $ & XP.

    I am stating facts about the game to be helpful to answer a question that a fellow player asked about. Thank you for furthering the toxic aspect of this forum. That is indeed a wise usage of your time.

    Because I thought you were vehemently against the idea of sharing info on how to play the game.

    So I guess I read wrongly. I take back what I posted. :pensive: Have a good day

    Yeah, my mistake, don't want to tip off EA that their item has a multiplier on it.
