Archives for category: Obedience rating

This week, I’ve been posting on the decorations, the level they unlock at, their cost, their XP on placement, the rating they contribute to, and the points they contribute:

  • Part 1, which looks at all the game dollar decorations up to level 14 is here; and
  • Part 2, which looks at all the game dollar decorations from level 15 to level 29 is here.

This post looks at the contribution of the premium decorations. Just a reminder, again, that this post contains the most recent information – I’ll be updating the original posts on Vanity and Tree-hugging soon. The decorations here are set out in the order in which they appear in the files:

Decoration Donut Cost XP Rating Points
Butterfly Tent 20 20 Vanity 200
Springfield Sign 170 170 Vanity 1800
Tire Fire 40 40 Vanity 800
Apple Tree 15 15 Tree-hugging 400
Orange Tree 15 15 Tree-hugging 400
Tree-Swing 20 20 Tree-hugging 400
Burning Bush 20 20 Tree-hugging 400
Bench 6 6 Vanity 200
Dumpster 10 10 Vanity 200
Flower Planter 10 10 Vanity 200
Picket Fence 1 1 Vanity 40
Homer’s Hammock 5 5 Vanity 200
Piece-of-crap car 30 30 Vanity 310
Channel 6 News Van 40 40 Vanity 200
Worldwide Broadcast Dish 30 30 Vanity 200
Ambulance 30 30 Obedience 10
Cannon 20 20 Vanity 200
Burns Limo 40 40 Vanity 200
Tetherball 20 20 Vanity 200
Police Car 40 40 Obedience 200
Mount Carlmore 120 120 Vanity 1200
Hot Tub 60 60 Vanity 600

As you’ll notice, the Police car and the Piece-of-Crap car both make higher contributions to Obedience and Vanity, respectively, than might have been expected. I was a bit surprised, so these have been checked and double-checked. I’ll need to update the Obedience post to reflect this as, initially, I’d read the 200 points for the Police Car as a Vanity contribution. But it looks like buying the Police Car may well solve any Obedience problems you may be having.

Tomorrow – the limited-time decorations…

Yesterday, I began posting on the decorations, the level they unlock at, their cost, their XP on placement, the rating they contribute to, and the points they contribute (and you can read part 1 here). This post takes you from the beginning of the game up to level 15 up to level 29. Just a reminder, too, that what’s in this post is the most recent information – I’ll be updating the original posts on Vanity and Tree-hugging soon.

Throughout this week, I’ve been digging into the files to see how the Conform-o-meter works and how you can maximize your conformity bonus. If you missed these posts, or you’d like to re-read them, here;s a list of them:

  • Part 1 of a post on the regular buildings and their ratings contributions (from the beginning of the game up to Moe’s Tavern) is here
  • Part 2 of a post on the regular buildings and their ratings contributions (from Jake’s Unisex Hair Palace up to the Skinner House) is here
  • A post on the premium buildings and their ratings contributions is here
  • A post on the limited-time buildings and their ratings contributions here (Duff Stadium, the Springfield Coliseum, and the Sleep-Eazy Motel can be found here as they were all limited-time at the time – however, their contribution status did not change with the Yard Sale update!)
  • A post on the points needed in each category at each level is here
  • A post on the number of shops you need to maximize your Consumerism rating is here
  • A post on the number of houses you need to maximize your Indolence rating is here

According to your Conform-o-meter, to boost your Obedience rating you need to have public buildings to keep your people docile:

image
Keeping the Obedience rating high helps move your Conformity Bonus to its 5% maximum, giving you extra cash and XP every time you tap. Every public building, whether it’s regular, premium or limited-time, contributes 10 points towards the rating. But it’s not just buildings that have an impact on your Obedience rating – there are decorations that have an effect as well:

– Stop Sign ($385 and unlocks at level 22) – 1 point
– Hail Ants Sign ($450 and unlocks at level 23) – 1 point
– Ambulance (30 donuts) – 10 points
– Police Car (40 donuts) – 200 points (yes, you read that right!)

So what are the public buildings that contribute towards your Obedience rating? Here’s a list (note that all buildings contribute 10 points except where marked):

Regular Buildings:
– Springfield Elementary
– The Nuclear Power Plant (each element looks like it contributes 10 points)
– Springfield Library
– First Church Of Springfield
– Jake’s Unisex Hair Palace
– Springfield Downs
– Police Station (1 point)
– Springfield Penitentiary (1 point)
– Town Hall
– Channel 6
– Springfield Post Office
– Hibbert’s Family Practice
– Springfield General Hospital
– Springfield Buddhist Temple
– Adult Education Annex

Premium Buildings:
– Aztec Theater
– Springfield Observatory
– Duff Brewery
– Krustylu Studios
– Lugash’s Gym
– Open Air Stage

Limited-time Buildings:
– Fort Sensible (Whacking Day event – no longer available)

So, just how many public buildings and decorations do you need to get that 5-star rating for Obedience at each level?:

Level Points Buildings Notes
1-11 10 1 You should maximize your rating once you unlock the School
12-13 50 5 Each element of the Nuclear Power Plant appears to contribute 10 points
14 60 6 You should be able to maximize your rating with regular buildings alone
15 70 7 You should be able to maximize your rating when you unlock Jake’s Unisex Hair Palace
16-19 80 8 As you unlock the buildings at these levels, you should be able to keep your rating up
20 90 9 You should be able to maximize your rating with regular buildings alone
21 100 10 You should be able to maximize your rating with regular buildings alone
22 110 11 You should be able to maximize your rating with regular buildings alone
23 140 14 You should be able to maximize your rating with regular buildings alone
24 160 16 This number appears in the files, but it looks like it’s a coding error
25 142 14 You’ll also need a couple of signs to maximize your rating
26 152 15 You’ll also need a couple of signs to maximize your rating
27-28 162 16 You’ll also need a couple of signs to maximize your rating
29 200 20 To maximize your rating, you’ll need premium buildings/decorations or lots of signs!

This week, I’ve been posting a guide to the buildings and the Conform-o-meter category they contribute to. Here’s where I’ve got to (and it’s almost at an end):

  • Part 1 from the beginning of the game up to Moe’s Tavern is here
  • Part 2, from Jakes Unisex Hair Palace up to the Skinner House is here
  • A post on the premium buildings is here
  • A post on the points needed in each category at each level is here

Just to recap: Each building you construct contributes a certain number of point to a different part of your Conform-o-meter and helps you get your conformity bonus to its 5% maximum. While a 5% bonus doesn’t sound like much, this extra amount every time you collect cash and XP from rent and jobs is part of what helps you build up the game dollars you need to progress easily in the game. Not every limited-time building makes a contribution, though.

So, here’s part 4 of the series covering all the limited-time buildings. The table below sets out the donut price of the building (and where the buildings were free or only purchasable with event currency, I’ve left it blank), the XP you get on construction, the rating the building boosts (if any), and the points it contributes to that rating. The information here supersedes information in earlier posts (which will all be updated soon):

Building Donut Price XP Rating Points
Springfield Cemetery 25 Vanity 100
Pet Cemetary 25 Vanity 100
House of Evil 100 Consumerism 10
Bad Dream House 150 Indolence 10
Mausoleum 60 60
Super Collider 50
Cool Brown House 10 Indolence 10
Mapple Store 90 90 Consumerism 10
Santa’s Village 200 75
Phineas Q. Butterfat’s 10 Gluttony 10
Howard’s Flowers 25 Consumerism 10
Sir Putt-a-lot’s 25 Consumerism 10
O’Flanagan’s Pub 200 Gluttony 10
Swanky Fish 90 90 Gluttony 10
Fort Sensible 10 Obedience 10
Duff Stadium 10
Springfield Coliseum 10 ??? ???
Sleep-Eazy Motel 10 ??? ???

It seems that no final conformity bonus contribution has been confirmed for the last two Whacking Day prizes. I’ll check in after the update and see whether the situation for these has changed.

Just one more post to go, on the “aspirational buildings”…

This week, I’ve been posting a guide to the buildings and the Conform-o-meter category they contribute to:

  • Part 1 from the beginning of the game up to Moe’s Tavern is here
  • Part 2, from Jakes Unisex Hair Palace up to the Skinner House is here
  • A post on the points needed in each category at each level is here

Each building you construct contributes a certain number of point to a different part of your Conform-o-meter and helps you get your conformity bonus to its 5% maximum. While a 5% bonus doesn’t sound like much, this extra amount every time you collect cash and XP from rent and jobs is part of what helps you build up the game dollars you need to progress easily in the game. But in digging into the files, I was surprised to find that a couple of buildings appear to contribute nothing to the Conform-o-meter, something you’ll see repeated in tomorrow’s post on the limited time buildings.

So, here’s part 3 of the series covering all the premium buildings that are not limited-time. The table below sets out the donut price of the building, the XP you get on construction, the rating the building boosts (if any), and the points it contributes to that rating. The information here supersedes information in earlier posts (which will all be updated soon):

Building Donut Price XP Rating Points
Frink’s Lab 150 150 Indolence 10
Lard Lad’s 110 110 Gluttony 10

A post (or two) on the limited-time buildings is on its way. And if you want to see what your ratings currently are, tap on the stars at the bottom left of your screen.

Yesterday, I posted the first part of a guide the game buildings and the Conform-o-meter category they contribute to (and you can read it here), and the day before I posted on the points needed in each category at each level (you can see that post here).

Each building you construct contributes a certain number of point to a different part of your Conform-o-meter and helps you to maximize your conformity bonus. While a 5% bonus doesn’t sound like much, this extra amount every time you collect cash and XP from rent and jobs is part of what helps you build up the game dollars you need to progress easily in the game.

This post is a little different from yesterday’s post in that, for level 24 onwards, I’m showing the base price in the file – the price the building will eventually drop to. Buildings up to level 23 are already selling at their base price and shouldn’t drop any lower. But for buildings from level 24 and up, a multiplier is at work, to keep them up until the next level increase. the multipliers seems to be as follows:
Level 24: 1.3x
Level 25: 1.3x
Level 26: 1.4x
Level 27: 1.6x
Level 28: 2x
Level 29: 3x
The multipliers don’t create different prices for different people. Rather, they’re the reason prices of the buildings at higher levels drop each time a new level is released.

So, here’s part 2 covering the buildings from Jake’s up to the Skinner House and the base price of the building, the XP you get on construction, the rating the building boosts, and the points it contributes to that rating. The information here supersedes information in earlier posts (which will all be updated as the week goes on):

The information here supersedes information in earlier posts (which will all be updated as the week goes on).

I’ve posted on the Conform-o-meter and its various components before. Keeping the Conform-o-meter at its maximum gives you a 5% bonus on all your cash and XP collections – but it can be quite difficult to manage sometimes, especially when a new level is released.

I’ll be updating all of the posts soon to take into account the new levels during this week (you can find them all by typing “Conform-o-meter” in the search bar at the bottom of the page). But with the drop in the Righteousness, Obedience and Consumerism ratings that seemed to come automatically for many players with the release of level 29, I thought I’d share with you something I found in the files.

To get that 5-star rating on any of the 8 elements of the Conform-o-meter, you need to reach a certain number of points. The points are linked to a value for each building or activity that has an impact on the Conform-o-meter and are hidden in the game data – and the points required for a 5-star rating change every time you level up. To see which of your ratings is likely to change as you move up in the game, here are the points required for each level:

Level Indo-lence Obedi-ence Consum-erism Gluttony Tree-hugging Right-eousness Vanity Social-ism

I’ll be updating some older posts regarding building numbers based on the above information. I’m also preparing a series of posts on which building contributes to which rating and with how many points. All of those should appear during this week.

ProfessorFrink1

I’ve done a number of posts over the past few week on the Conform-o-meter and how to maximize your conformity bonus. In the most recent post on the Obedience rating (which you can find here), I wrote about how the Stop Signs and the Hail Ants Signs that are unlocked at levels 22 and 23 respectively can help your Obedience rating. The Stop Sign is easy to understand, but a number of people have asked about what the Hail Ants Sign means and just why it helps Obedience. And like the answer to the “What is Whacking day?” question, the answer lies in one of the older episodes of the series.

The “Hail Ants” reference comes “Deep Space Homer”, which was episode 15 of season 5. As Wikipedia summarizes the episode here: “NASA is concerned by the decline in public interest in space exploration, and therefore decides to send an ordinary person into space. Homer is selected and chaos ensues when the navigation system on his space shuttle is destroyed.”

In the course of all that chaos, he breaks an experimental ant farm, letting the ants loose in the shuttle. As they fly close to the shuttle’s internal cameras, Kent Brockman, in a live news feed, mistakes them for giant alien ants arriving to conquer the Earth and surrenders himself to the new ant overlords. In doing so, he posts a “Hail Ants” sign on the studio wall behind him to show them that he’s on their side and will comply with all their orders, only tearing the sign down when he realizes his mistaken interpretation of events aboard the shuttle.

tumblr_m279r3Fmfk1rto4kfo3_500
Brockman: One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them. The ants will soon be here. And I for one welcome our new insect overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

So, that’s why a Hail Ants Sign promotes Obedience. And that’s another great reason to take a look at the older episodes.

Update: Here’s a clip from the ANIMATION on FOX YouTube channel talking about the episode:

This post has been significantly update – see here: http://wp.me/p35pG7-29x

I posted this a while back, but here’s an updated version. I’ve revised this a bit to take into account some new information that surprised me.

According to your Conform-o-meter, to boost your Obedience rating you need to have public buildings to keep your people docile!

image
Keeping the Obedience rating high helps move your Conformity Bonus to its 5% maximum, giving you extra cash and XP every time you tap. Now, it can be quite challenging to improve at lower levels, as most of the public buildings you need to unlock to boost this rating arrive at later stages of the game.

So, what are the public buildings? Well, they’re the buildings that have piles of cash above them and include:
– the Library
– the First Church of Springfield (and its Heck House variant)
– the Police Station
– the Post Office
– Springfield Penitentiary
– Springfield General Hospital
– the Hibbert Family Practice
– Springfield Observatory (a premium building)
– the Springfield Subatomic Collider (a limited-time item available at Halloween)
– Springfield Cemetery (a limited-time item available at Halloween)
– Springfield Pet Cemetary (a limited-time item available at Halloween)
– the Mausoleum (a limited-time item available at Halloween)

Those are all obvious enough. But here’s the surprise – they also include O’Flanagan’s Pub, Barney’s Bowl-a-rama, the Volcano Lair, the Android’s Dungeon, the Bad Dream House from Halloween, Burns Manor and the Wiggum House. And so are the Christmas Tree and Santa’s Village from the Christmas update! And they don’t include the Springfield Elementary School or the Town Hall – these buildings have an impact on your Righteousness rating, as does Moe’s Tavern.

That’s not the full story, though. Like all the other elements of your Conformity Bonus, the Obedience rating seems to drop when there’s a new level or when you expand your land area. Fortunately, you can also improve it by putting up signs – and planting lots of the Stop Signs ($385 and unlocking at level 22) and the Hail Ants Sign ($450 and unlocking at level 23) can give it a significant boost. Exactly how many you need, however, will depend very much on the size of your town. And, if you’re a donut-user, police-cars help, too, although they’ll set you back 40 donuts each.

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post on the Conform-o-meter and how it works (and occasionally doesn’t). You can find it here. Keeping your Conform-o-meter at 5 stars is an important part of maximizing your cash and XP collections for your buildings and your character’s jobs.

This post looks at some of the things that can happen in the normal course of your game to cause your ratings (and your conformity bonus) to vary. Just as a reminder, your conformity bonus comes is calculated from 8 factors (6 for Android players):

image
So what can happen in normal gameplay that has an impact on your Conform-o-meter?

1. Unlocking characters/buying premium characters: both of these actions can cause drops in your Indolence, Consumerism and Gluttony ratings. More characters often means you need more houses, restaurants and shops. And more criminal or corrupt characters can have an impact on your Righteousness rating.

2. Buying land: expanding your town but leaving the land vacant can cause your Consumerism, Gluttony and Obedience to drop. It helps your Tree-Hugging rating, though.

3. Housing mix: it seems that your housing mix has an impact on a number of elements of your Conform-o-meter elements, including Obedience, Righteousness, and Consumerism. If there’s an imbalance between your cheaper houses and your more expensive houses, the meter will be affected (which is good enough reason for house farmers to farm Blue or Pink Houses rather than Brown Houses).

4. Your characters’ behavior: ignoring tasks has been reported as having an impact on Obedience. And the behavior of Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby can have an impact on Righteousness – it seems that if either of these two repeatedly engage in corrupt activities, the meter will drop. In a way it makes sense – corruption lowers their authority and leads to an increase in crime.

5. Pollution: you probably noticed that unlocking the Power Plant had a negative impact on your conformity bonus and you needed to plant some more trees to make up for its environmental impact. Failing to clean up debris also hurts your Vanity and Tree-Hugging ratings.

If you want to know more about how specific parts of the Conform-o-meter work, you can search this site to see what’s already here. And there’ll be more to come over the next few days.

The stars at the bottom left of your screen tell you the current rating for your town. Tapping on these takes you to your Conform-o-meter, which is a very important part of your game:

The more stars you have, the more money and XP you can collect from buildings or from your characters’ jobs. But to maximize your collections, you need to keep your ratings high in 8 areas:

(Note: Android players have a slightly different Conform-o-meter, without Righteousness or Socialism, both of which are affected by the social part of the game. These will appear at the same time as Origin does.)

All of these 8 areas come together to give you a conformity bonus of up to 5% on all money and XP collections. But just how they work can sometimes be a bit of a mystery. Here, then, is an overview of what each one does and what it’s affected by:

1. Indolence: affected by the number of houses you have compared to the number of characters you have – type of housing and housing balance can also have an impact
2. Consumerism: affected by the number of stores you have for the number or characters you have
3. Tree Hugging: affected by the trees, bushes, and pollution you have in your town
4. Vanity: affected by the number of type of decorations and special objects in your town
5. Obedience: affected by the number of government and public services you have for your town population
6. Gluttony: affected by the number of restaurants you have for your town population.
7. Righteousness: affected by a combination of your criminal population and their moral behavior, as well as by leaving and cleaning up graffiti
8. Socialism: affected by the number of Origin friends you have and how frequently you visit them

This means that there are a few things that happen regularly in the game that will have an impact on your Conform-o-meter – and I’ll take a look at some of those in part 2…

This post has been significantly update – see here: http://wp.me/p35pG7-29x

According to your Conform-o-meter, to boost your Obedience rating you need to have public buildings to keep your people docile! Now, this makes it quite challenging to improve at lower levels, as most of the public buildings you need unlock at later stages of the game.

So, what are the public buildings? Well, they’re the buildings that have piles of cash above them and include:
– the School
– the Library
– the Church
– the Police Station
– the Town Hall
– the Post Office
– the Hospital

… apparently, Android’s Dungeon and the Wiggum House!

But that’s not the full story. Like all the other elements of your conformity bonus, the Obedience rating seems to drop when there’s a new level or when you expand your land area. And, by level 24, you’ve completely run out of public buildings.

Fortunately, you can also improve your Obedience rating by putting up signs – and planting lots of the Stop Sign ($385 and unlocking at level 22) and the Hail Ants Sign ($450 and unlocking at level 23) can give it a significant boost. Exactly how many you need, however, will depend very much on the size of your town.
