    I block my KEM's off with roads too! Thought I was the only weirdo that did this!! It keeps my 8x10 farm even :D

    You could also use Obstacles to wall the KEMs off nicely. Takes a bit time to place the obstacles, but the farm take less space this way then it would using roads.

    True, but roads don't count against the stupid item limit..

    I use the ISBB to keep them in nice neat rows. It saves space, and the billboards are there anyway for the %, so may as well make them work for you.

  • When you reach 939, how many KEMs are you putting out every 4 hours? It's 1 milion XP to get the boxes, right? So how many KEM is needed to get 1 milion with the collider running? If your first choice doesn't yield 3 donuts, do you choose the other boxes until you get 3 donuts?

    Good questions. At my multiplier (1275%) I need 7 KEMs to hit a million XP. I farm out about 75 per cycle, so that gives me about ten bonut boxes.

    I use the "only open another box if you are guaranteed improvement" box-opening strategy, so that gives me an average of 2.667 donuts per bonut box. So, I earn about 30 donuts per cycle.

    And, I bank about $100,000-$200,000 in cash each cycle by only putting out 75 KEMs. New land costs me $200,000+ these days, so I can buy a few new plots each day.

  • Hey Farmers,

    Wadebear motivated me to plant a crop of KeMs. I've only done this once before, and i don't recall the cost escalating to $30400 nor do i remember it only taking an hour to build.

    My multiplier is like 337% and i have $40M. I just spent about $18M to build about 400 units. They'll be done in a few mins and I'll turn on the collider.

    Am i doing it right? Should i be building fewer units? I can't fit anymore.

    Aww you guys missed out. After collecting, and selling, i realized i just farmed 400 KrustyBurgers!

    This is why i don't farm. If i can do it wrong, i sure will. D'oh!

    Actually, I used to farm KBs alongside KEMs before KEM farming was even talked about on the forum. They were 12 hrs, and gave similar XP payouts to KEMs. Then, they had an update that reduced the XP and build time, and it made building them worthless.

  • In just 2 days, I've gained already over 30 levels. So, we're starting to fly by these levels. Hopefully, it shouldn't take too much longer to reach the fabled Level 939.

    Once you do, it's happy days. Bonuts and % increases galore. And all those premium items coming back that you could never afford before...

    When you reach 939, how many KEMs are you putting out every 4 hours? It's 1 milion XP to get the boxes, right? So how many KEM is needed to get 1 milion with the collider running? If your first choice doesn't yield 3 donuts, do you choose the other boxes until you get 3 donuts?

    Have you seen the Farm Calculator? Answers all those questions.

    I just tried this calculator. It didn't give me any useful info. I put in the multiplier i have (337%) and the number of KeMs i out down every four hours (500).

    But it doesn't ask how much money i have so it can't know how many donuts I'll earn. I want to know how many donuts I'll earn for X amount of dollars, if i do Z amount of harvests in 24 hours.

    The farm calculator is mainly for deciding how many boxes to open once a player is level 939.

    When I put your numbers in the calculator (500 KEMs, really? Wow) it says every 4 hours costs $6,672,655 and you will get 88.5 donuts using recomended strategy.
    That should be enough info to figure out the rest.

    Yep, it's a bonus box for me every seven KEM's too. But I always keep opening the boxes until I hit three donuts. With a good multiplier and plenty of buildings and characters on 4 hour job cycles, it doesn't hurt your cash reserves to keep on until you hit three bonuts.

    It can be tedious but when a new event starts and there's a lot of premium content (new and returning) it's a great feeling to be able to hoover everything up and not worry about being donut poor.
  • Ok, I know this has already answered and I did look to see if I could find my answer, so here is my questions:

    1. Does Waverly Hills still have hidden XP?
    2. Do I have to have all the pieces of the upgrades placed?
    3. Do I need to upgrade everything to level 5 like the hidden hideaway?

    Thanks in advance.

    No to all 3 questions, assuming you mean the normal Springfield Heights buildings (excluding Beach Hideaways).

  • I feel like KEM isnt the long term solution, even if someone has the space for KEM, its very slow and boring compared to spending 10 mil and getting 400 donuts from RTT

    Omg this is hard! Collecting from 500 kems takes forever. Just collecting their rent, it wasn't even tallyed up before it came back around to collect a second time! The screen was covered in xp. It took an hour to collect all and sell all and another half hour to replace another 500. I went from $26M down to $9M, but from 33 donuts up to 112.

    My collider has 15 hours left. It appears I'll use up the cash before the multiplier expires.

    It's just way too tedious. I don't how how you all keep it up.

    You have too big of a farm. Think smaller and more manageable. Only build as many KEM as you can without your igc going down. The most I ever build is 162 or so after I spend some donuts and only until my donut stash is back to my minimum of 3000. Then I go back to 54 or 108 once or twice a day.

    First off, forget the rent. Its not worth the time and effort. Second, I would cut the number of KEMs, probably in half unless you absolutely need them. I only do 200 when I need donuts quick, and 100-150 normally.

    By only doing 35 every 4 hours. It takes about 2 minutes to complete the builds, sell them, then put another set down and I get 6 to 9 donuts.
    You're trying to do too many at once.
    Reinvest those donuts into Mystery Boxes and raise your multiplier. The higher your multiplier the fewer KEMs you need to build.
