I went to a Town with Magma & my PreTeen Flamed all the Febreze toilets. Every other hit was a Magma flame, pretty funny, it was a room with a dozen toilets & she danced around each one having a Literal BLAST.
I bet it varies per town, some may have higher levels of Magma & others have higher levels of Terra.

Maybe that's related to the geographical locations of our neighbours?
<conspiracy theory hat off> :lol:

I think you are right in that, it might be interesting to find out.

I also think the resources are random ... they aren't connected to the activity the sim is performing. I've gotten both wind and granite from filling pet dishes, I've gotten bamboo from a sim using the toilet (not the Febreeze toilet), I've gotten a chunk of onyx from a preteen calling her grandma. I have 4 divers and I've collected a grand total of one pearl.

And I've gotten nothing from the Febreeze toilet. I have sprayed and sprayed and NADA. I still do the spray action every time a sim uses one of those toilets, just to see if it will give me anything, but I've had a lot more luck (which still isn't much luck) with just random daily tasks. I'm finding the resources ridiculously hard to collect.

Sometimes I think it's based on the XPs every sim has earned. E.g. 1000 XPs give resource x, 500 more give the next, 1000 more ... and so on. But then suddenly he gets a resource for washing hands and right after that another for drinking Espresso. So it's still a mystery :lol:

I also see that Bixas' therorie makes sense.

I received resources for chasing cars :) Today I took a bit time for it with 12 cars and received 5 Onyx, 1 bamboo and 1 chisel. I only heard the sound and guess, it was every time when a driver had left the town map. I had to look at the monuments to find out, which resources have increased.

I can't get the magma embers either. If that even is what it's called! I've only gotten one, and that was from some unknown action by some unknown Sim. (It's the resource on the far right in "Flames of Wisdom.") I've no idea how to get it.

I had some luck with the magma using the febreeze toilet. I just use the one in Perturbee's town and grind that thing for 20 minutes non stop. But still it's not consistent though. A couple nights ago I got resources drop every few action which was great but later it stopped entirely. Talk about random.

Same here. I received this resource at least 1 times for design.
The picture only shows a shadow, because I was slow :(

ErinPW! Your town produced magma embers three times for the mayor of my Sim Town, Maya Angelou. Source? The febreze toilet, of course. Maybe other towns produce magma embers better than our own? Ah, who knows?!
