Archives for posts with tag: level 30

This comment and question came in from Matt:

I read this and other tapped out blogs daily, but one thing I can’t rely on is prices. I play on an android tablet and I am british (I don’t know if this makes a difference) but my prices for loads of things are totally different to tstotips, tapped out wiki and other tapped out blogs… Why?

All the regular building have a base price in the files – the price they will eventually drop to. But the highest 5 levels also have a multiplier at work, which keeps the prices of the regular buildings high until a new level is released. The levels and their multipliers are as follows:

Level 24: 1.3x
Level 25: 1.3x
Level 26: 1.4x
Level 27: 1.6x
Level 28: 2x
Level 29: 3x

That means that buildings up to level 23 are now selling at their base price and shouldn’t drop any lower. But for buildings from level 24 and up, the multiplier keeps the price high until the next level increase. And when level 30 is released, this is what should happen:

Level 24: no multiplier (base price)
Level 25: 1.3x
Level 26: 1.3x
Level 27: 1.4x
Level 28: 1.6x
Level 29: 2x
Level 30: 3x

The idea seems to be to make it more challenging to save up the cash to build the latest buildings, theoretically keeping players busy until the next level is released (there’s currently about 4-6 weeks between levels).

The multiplier has confused writers on some sites, and some have suggested that it creates different prices according to the level you’re at (that is, level 29 players pay more than level 24 players). That’s not the case. Comments through this site clearly indicate that every player gets the same prices. And it’s worth noting that the prices of premium buildings don’t change, though, and nor do decoration prices. What it does mean is that ever-changing prices means that it’s a while before the prices you see in walkthroughs (including the ones on this site) become stable.

If you want to see what the base prices of the newest buildings are and get an idea of where they’ll drop to eventually, take a look here. And if you’d like to check out the current building prices, you can see this post.

Honestly, that’s very difficult to say. Just like the anticipation before Whacking Day, we don’t really know when the Squidport expansion will land, but we know there’s exciting stuff on the way. The Yard Sale end date is unclear – it could end this week or it could end next week (while the date in the files says May 29, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything). But because it’s unclear, we really can’t be sure when the next big thing will begin.

So, if you want to join the speculation and you’re on the home page, click or tap on the link below the picture. And if you’re already on the post page, you have until the end of the picture to leave as quickly as you can…

Each time you level up, you get a message from a character that may or may not already be in the game congratulating you and awarding you donuts (you can see the last post I wrote on leveling up and find out how many free donuts you’re getting at the next level right here). And, the good news is that in amongst all information for the Yard Sale update were level up messages for level 30 and 31.

I’ve listed below the level update messages that appear throughout the game, and included the level 30 and 31 messages that appear in the files and who says them. I’m not treating these as spoilers – it’s no secret that levels 30 and 31 are planned, although we probably won’t see these until June and July, respectively.
