Googolplex pay-off

I've been playing 'Return Of The Titanic Ben-Hur' at the Googolplex almost exclusively, and what a pay-off :-)
Just bought 266 tennis courts ;)

  • I am keeping the pay off to supposedly unlock the lands behind the mountains. I wonder would it be these SH resources or land tokens in future.

    I haven't used the theater in ages. What is the payoff you're referring to? Is it award statues? I've just been assigning the 8hr SH tasks to earn my courts. The trick will be hiding them all. I plan to make most of them invisible

    For the 3 hour movie, Ben Hur, it pays out 5 Hollywood awards. Can be rushed for 2 donuts, if that's easy on your donut pocketbook. So 4 donuts for 2.25% multiplier. Sounds pretty awesome IMO. (I know for certain about the 5 awards. I'm 99% sure that it's 3 hours. I'm 99.5% sure it's 2 donuts to rush. I'm 99.9% sure that it's 2.25% multiplier. Might be 2.5 %. I can't recall how much in game cash it is for the movie.)

    That's 200K per movie, so 400K to get you 10 awards, to get you 1 tennis court. Just to be clear.

    Be glad you're not my neighbour, I have them EVERYWHERE out in the sea, on the esplanade, around everything...

    My town is just a complete eyesore now (sorry neighbours) but at the moment I don't care, it's gonna be like my old angel topiary farms or my minnow ponds area, useful to keep my bonus up whilst I get other things, but will be gone eventually... once I've fast tracked enough doughnuts to get everything, I can start designing my town properly... spent soooo long reaching 600% and *BAM* ..the YMB and this added around 1000% so far
    Oh Lord!.... My town is a mess... *sigh*

    It just occurred to me that maybe the tennis courts could be lined up to make substitute (albeit ugly) "roads". Like dark "asphalt" streets. Dark green asphalt streets. With volleyball nets every few feet for a car to run into. And huge gaps every few feet between the volleyball nets. And line up buildings to face these "roadways"

    Does that make any sense? (Can you tell that I have not actually tested to see if this could work?)

  • The tennis courts are pretty easy to hide, but I’ve only picked up 20 of them and that’ll do me. It’s a cool way to build the % though. I didn’t bother with the Googolplex, I just sent Sideshow Mel off on 8hr stints @24 awards a pop.

    I've hidden quite a few of mine but I'm pretty much out of space behind buildings (jet engine bikes and the other tennis courts). I laid some down near KL and they look nice in a row there.

  • I kept bulk of the tennis courts in storage as I feel that they take up too much land space

    I'll be building courts until I can't anymore. It won't last forever. This is the fastest I've increased my bonus ever. I've finally broken 1000%. I WILL hide them all

    I've used tennis courts as roads in my town ever since they were first released. Didn't think they'd ever return in the same way, so I'm happy to add lots more now. I only have real roads in Springfield Heights.
  • Hadn’t noticed the tennis courts were back, thanks for the tip

    Yeah, same here! I've not cared about SH rewards in so long I forgot the Googolplex awards them!

    No. They only walk across them on their way to somewhere else; in my town characters tend to congregate either in SH where I do have roads, or in Krustyland / I&S Land as they also like the paths there!
