I feel like I am really behind everyone!!

Players like myself that have played since the beginning have accumulated loads of wealth waiting for new updates which means we are never saving to get new items. Alongside that, premium players have very high multipliers which means they recieve more money and exp for everything.

After you have finished growing corn, instead of harvesting it you can leave it there. When a neighbour taps on your corn, you receive a handshake above your own harvesting logo. You can wait and accumulate a few handshakes and then cash them to receive the full benefit for each handshake. It is recommended to keep at least one extra handshake at all times.

There are a few conform-o-meter parts that require you to purchase multiple of the same item. For instance, if you haven't been at every event or aren't a premium purchaser, you may need to buy 7+ kwik-e marts to hold your Consumerism rating at 5 stars. Likewise with Gulp'n'Blows for the Gluttony rating. You can build Training Walls, capture Sideshow Bob or clean graffiti to bring your Righteousness to 5 stars (training walls are the best). Tree Hugging and Vanity ratings come from building decorations - if you click the i for information on the items in the build menu and it will tell you which rating it contributes to. Indolence comes from lots of houses and Obedience will come with the main story line from buildings such as the First Church of Springfield, Police Station, Town Hall, Springfield Library etc. You will need a lot of friends to max out Socialism. Most people on this forum have 100. You can get more neighbours by visiting the sticky thread for it.

If you have any other questions about these, PM me.

    Lots of players make money by house farming. Just build a metric tonne of houses (whichever is easiest for you. I chose blue as I'm online a lot and can collect every 8 hours) and watch the dollars roll in.

    But be warned, some people here like to tell other people how to play their game and how their SF should look. So if you go down the house farming route make sure none of them have to suffer your "ugly" town by removing them from (or simply not adding them to) your friends list.

    If Gluttony is troubling you: Coffee carts. They will have to be placed on the boardwalk. But they are small and I find you can easily hide them behind buildings. Especially if you're taking advantage of the Tile handshake stacking glitch.

    If Obedience is troubling you: Stop signs! You can place them about the town at logical spots, or these very easily hide behind buildings. You can hide them behind white houses very easily. (Or just about any building, really)

    If Righteous is troubling you: Training walls! They also hide very easily behind BIG buildings. Like the High School, Costington's, and the rink. (I have some hiding behind the coliseum and Duff stadium as well)

    If consumerism is troubling you, well, I have bad news. You are going to need multiple Kwik e mart's. Even if you have all the Limited time and premiums, you will probably need 3. Christmas has been VERY helpful on this Conform o Meter rating. Likely, if you missed Halloween, you will require at least 8 KEM's.

    At level 36 you rewuire at least 45 houses to max out indolence. Though this one should be fairly easy to max out.

    For Vanity, the $70 trash can is the cheapest pts per $ and the $70 shrub is cheapest for Tree hugging.

    Well, I guess socialism is easiest. Go into the add me Christmas thread and pick some names. LOL.

    If you like spreadsheets, I have a spreadsheet with everything in the game and what rating it helps if you would like to see what goes where. PM me an email and I'll send it to you. Otherwise the above is the crib notes.

    Actually, I believe this event yielded the best options for consumerism. Besides, I have every building and I have 1 kwik-e mart - my original.

    @conalmcainsh I believe I have 5. (in my other game. It's premium) But I don't need them all. I just found semi logical places for them and now I don't want to store them. I don't have the Sprawl mart, so I could probably store 2 or 3 if I get desperate for space.

    My non premium game with only the Christmas and Halloween 2013 Limited times has 7 KEM's. (I did snag the House of Evil with some of the donuts I received during the event so 1 premium)

    Limited time items are only available for a certain amount of time usually 24 hours to a week unless it's tied to an event like Christmas. Premium refers to items bought with donuts. Which you either accumulate slowly or buy hence the premium moniker.

    Another way to get money is in between updates. That's the time to stack your money. Your will probably be able to do this after valentines day. You can go through your neighbor's SF daily plus putting your characters to work. That's how I helped my husband. He's now at 700k and he's on level 37. He would more but I hate going his town and mine. Also look at buildings that contain characters. Buy them first because that gives you another character that can make you money versus buying something like the mental hospital. Hope this helps.

    Unless you want to house farm it'll take very long to save up.
    The best ways to get lots of cash is to send your characters on short tasks and keep coming back multiple times a day to collect. Also having all money making buildings and decorations out helps a lot too. I can say from experience though it'll take a while to get to numbers that will actually grant you unhindered buying power. It took me over 2 months to get 6 million money. Though once you have all the land plots money will start growing real fast since there isn't much to buy between updates. :)

    The following 3 buildings are premium buys and add points to your consumerism:
    Try N Save
    Sprawl Mart
    Ferris Wheel
    These of course, are buildings you can add at any time, donut willing. You can also have multiple of the Ferris wheel. But as you can only place them on the boardwalk, it does create a problem.

    Limited time buildings that add to consumerism:
    from Christmas 2012- Mapple Store (with a release on Android, who knows if they will ever re-release this building)
    from Valentine's 2013 - Howard's Flowers (I think it's fairly likely this will be rereleased provided they do a vday thing this year)
    from Halloween 2012/3 - House of Evil
    From Halloween 2013 - Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop
    5 from Christmas 2013
    -1 Present depot
    -2 Springfield Mall
    -3 Costington's
    -4 Claus Co
    -5 Santa's Workshop (the one that is a community prize)

    Limited time of course means, if you weren't playing when this buildings were added, you are SOL.

    Provided you've gotten the 5 buildings from this Christmas, and have built all of Squidport, you will probably need 8 KEM's if you're a freeium player to max out Consumerism. If you were playing during Halloween and are a premium player, then subtract accordingly.

    Edit: I guess the Ceaser's Casino also goes to Consumerism. It was both limited time and premium.

    Once you buy all the land you want, then the money really starts to pile up.

    ...Ferris Wheel

    I do not think this is true, it shows a cash icon, not a store. So I think that was a rumor about it covering consumerism.
    5 from Christmas 2013
    -1 Present depot
    -2 Springfield Mall
    -3 Costington's
    -4 Claus Co
    -5 Santa's Workshop (the one that is a community prize)

    I think Claus Co and Santa's Workshop show cash icons, so I do not think those contribute. The present depot pays no reward, so I don't think that offers a reward either. I may have to check those out.


    Edit: I guess the Ceaser's Casino also goes to Consumerism. It was both limited time and premium.

    This building is also a cash icon, so I'm thinking it does not contribute either.
