*I originally posted this about a month ago, but as the blog has attracted lots more readers since then and there have been quite a few questions recently about this, I thought a repost would be helpful.*

Buying premium items and keeping your Conform-o-meter (the stars at the bottom left of your screen) high helps you to maximize the cash and XP bonus you get on the rent from your buildings and the jobs you give your characters. The conformity bonus is a maximum of 5%, so it’s easy to see. But if you have premium decorations in your town, it can be quite difficult to see the bonus impact unless you have a love of numbers and calculations. So, is there an easy way to work out what your current bonus multiplier actually is?

Yes, there is. The easiest way to see your current bonus multiplier is to pay close attention when you collect your rent at the Gulp ‘n’ Blow. Since it gives you exactly $100 without taking any bonus into account, anything you get above that is your bonus multiplier.

The screenshot shows the cash I collect from my Gulp ‘n’ Blow. As you can see, I currently collect $138 dollars on it. That means my bonus multiplier is running at 38% – and each time I tap to collect from a building or a character, I’m getting 38% above the going rate. (You’ll need to click on the picture and enlarge it to see the numbers in white – I collected on the XP first to make the numbers easier to see.)

See what yours is next time you collect. And, if you want to, let everyone know here.

With multipliers. If you have multiples of the same object do they all add up. Eg. The burning bush gives 0.5% bonus so with 4 burning bushes does that mean you get 2.0%

Hi – yes they do π

Thanks

Can I just add, that for those who don’t have the gulp and blow yet, Cletus has a 12 hour job to dig through garbage (requires a dumpster) which gives exactly 100 exp, and so can be used to calculate the multiplier in exactly the same way. The down side is its a 12 hour job!

Um, 4%.

I can’t believe some people have 116%…. must have spent a freaking truckload on donuts for multiples of everything.

I am getting $396 dollars when i use my gulp n Blow. I have several duff buses, giant grasshopper and duff ballons. So I getting 296% extra on my jobs and xp?

That’s right. Wow! π

My gulp n blow earns me $216…so what %is my increase?

116%, depending on terminology – For every 100 dollars the game gives you, you earn an additional 116 dollars due to premium items π

155%

238%

9%

I have calculated my percentage to 41.9%. However when I add up everything I can only get to 41.8%. Is there a 0.1% that everyone starts at by default? This is bothering me.

I don’t think so Daniel – it may be a rounding issue. π

My multiplier is a sweet 52%! My town is maxed out, though, now that I got all the land and the 50 ft Magnifying Glass π

I reckon the fastest way for bonus multiplier is to buy certain premium deco:

– Channel 6 News Van (40 donuts) : 2%

– Burns Limo (40 donuts) : 2%

– Police Car (40 donuts) : 2%

If using 40 donuts as base, one can also consider these premium deco available at lower levels:

– Picket Fence (1 donut): 0.05% / (40 donuts): 2%

– Homer’s Hammock (5 donuts): 0.25% / (40 donuts): 2%

But I’m not sure if there’s a limit/cap on bonus multiplier, eg: is 100% max?

Hi Lee – there doesn’t seem to be a cap – I’ve seen at least one report of greater than 100%.

By the way – thanks for your other note – I think it may have been unintentional, but it’s fixed now! π

U can go beyond 100 percent I can confirmed that just reached 103 percents today π

I have about 125 brown houses that yield $6 per. Because of my premium stuff I’m getting $11 per. So I’m getting over $1500 every 5 minutes when I sit and play for a while

I’m getting 71%

Checked mine out on the Wiggum House and I’m getting 27% for mine.

54%

67%

I like to use the Mausoleum I bought at Halloween – base pay is $200 (I think something else pays 200?) which gives another decimal place of precision when you work the math – my multiplier is actually 37.5% (presumably — since white fences boost 0.05% each), since the Mausoleum pays 275!

The following pays 200: white house, church, Skip’s Diner, Hibbert’s, Wiggum House, Mapple Store, lemon tree, Aztec, library.

To even be more accurate, send a premium character on a 24 hour task, which pays $1000. Subtract 1000 and divide the result by 10 to get your multiplier. For example, if I send my squeaky voiced teen to advertise burgers, he earns $1252. My multiplier is 25.2%.

The multiplier always rounds UP! I get $126 in the Gulp ‘n Blow. I collect 2 XP from the Simpson house, which gives a base of 1 XP. This is because the game rounded up my supposed 1.252 XP to 2.

Thanks Jovy! π
