towns with Massive Value

Post by Bixas »

So I am a (relative) newbie to the game. I have been playing for a short while (just a week before the social update)... Just finished building the last public building in my town, working on my Island (I am level 30, so only half the statues are in play). Total value for my city is 3 million.

I expect people to be ahead of me... However:

My question (and this really is a question, not a complaint) is how do people have towns worth upwards of 200 million?

Has the game been going on for that long? I can't seem to find a "history of Freeplay" anywhere to see for certain. Was there a patch in a previous version that allowed people to get town value in ways I can't today?

Just looking for some stories here.

According to the Sims Wiki, the game was released in Dec 2011 for iOs and Feb 2012 for Android.
I have been playing since the Halloween update in October 2012. That was when they first started hobbies with Ghost Hunting.

Initially the rewards for a complete set of ghosts was 1 million in town value and having only 1 hobby with 10 ghost hunters meant a quick rise in town value. After a while they cut it down to half a million before finally decreasing it to 50,000. As I did a lot of ghost hunting my town value is over 300 million.
Not updated and Not playing! (please excuse zombies)

Now completing a set in hobbies only gives you 3LP. You can still increase your town value with hobbies though. Reaching level 5 in any hobby will increase your town value by 10,000 per sim. I have 19 sims just rotating between woodworking and ghost hunting.

Thanks for the information I was wondering the same thing. I have only been playing a few months also. Did they offer limited edition items also, I see items in houses that I can't find.

What sort of items are you referring to?

Yes, there have been several!

The last unique item was the Ice Hockey net in Climate Control, Moving Up featured the "Alien Transporter" (if I'm not mistaken about the uniqueness), and many more before that.

ok, well that makes a lot more sense. I was trying to look at how I was raising money (fashion design, farming, employment...) and couldn't see how the money could come in 10x faster. But if the values were raised by a million simply by leveling hobbies, then that can easily explain the delta.

I also read somewhere that during Moving Up (which I missed by a few months) that you could get your second / third stories through a point system instead of just earning 1 million simoleans

and BTW: what is the keystroke for simoleans? I can make £ $ ¥ € ₣ and even Ω, but I can't find Simoleans anywhere... ;)

Yes, the first additional floor was 220 CC (construct-o-coins), I don't recall what the next one was. These coins could also be used to buy stairs, lifts and fire-poles. The fire-poles made a lot of players rich in §s through selling them after the event ended.
