Gluttony and consumerism

OKAY.
This is ****, I have every single building except for the new premium with whatever the heck his damn name is.
Why does my rating keep going down??? What about the people with NO premiums. I have like 6 marts, 3 gulp and blows and 4 Krusty burgers


Sorry, venting. But they're starting to clutter the s*** out of my town.


Uhg

They changed the numbers in the last level update.....most likely in anticipation for squidport (a lot of new buildings coming out for that).....If I were you I wouldn't bother trying to keep it up at 5 stars until Squidport....

    I know! Me too. I had just reached 4 stars and *bam* - worst of all I wake up and my righteousness rating is right down and I don't know why since there is no graffiti and I caught Sideshow Bob... Argh :evil:

    ^^^ As far as the righteousness, I've noticed that keeping criminals off the street is less effective than spraying and cleaning. When I visit friends' towns I try to clean one and spray two. As I did an experiment recently where I stopped spraying or cleaning in other towns and my rating dropped and never increased.

    I have also noticed that mine are down. It has frustrated me as well! But I am going to let it slide for a little while banking on this "bigger" update ;)

    Look at the difference between lvl 29-30. :shock: It drastically rises up which probably proves for a fact Squidport was coming out before lvl 30 but i guess they didn't change this since Squidport is COMING SOON :!: :shock: :shock:

    I had 5 stars at level 29 with one of every building including all the limited ones and I needed to add 2 extra restaurants, 8 extra houses, and 1 extra store which I put together in the corner I call the suburbs. For level 30 I needed to have 10 extra restaurants, 12 extra houses, and 10 extra stores. It look so stupid so I got rid of the suburbs.

    I've been at 5 stars for months, took a nose dive to 3.5 stars after this update. Normally after an update, I dip down to 4 and then it goes back up on it's own in a couple of days. So, I just don't worry about it.

    It hasn't gone back up but I'm still not going to worry about it. I refuse to litter up my town, I already have 3 Kwik-E-Marts, 2 Gulp-n-Blows, and 3 Krusty Burgers. I made them fit in so it looks like they are the neighborhood stores but I'm not going to get more of them just for a rating.

    So, I'm just not worrying about it. Besides, the star rating is insignificant when it comes to bonus multipliers IMO.

    Beyond annoying. You get penalized for house farming and then get the experience points.

    is the limit on decorations etc still there? kind of lame to expect us to keep adding tons of quickie marts,gulp and blows, and crusty burgers..not to mention having to hide stop signs and hail ant signs behind every building just to keep the rating up..

    I totally agree that the star multiplier is insignificant! But I find myself getting caught up in trying to get back to five stars. This time though, I'm waiting because I have too many extra Kw-Marts and G-n-**** as it is!
