I know I still owe everything the rest of the Conform-O-Meter break downs, but with the release of Levels 33, 34 & 35 so close together it’s been hard to get all of the info out to you in between updates. I promise more details will be coming soon! Today,however, I wanted to talk about Level 35’s impact on the Conform-O-Meter.
The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and XP from everything you collect in the game. When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town. If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.
The Level 35 update has introduced 4 new buildings, 4 new characters, 3 new decorations & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield. At Level 35 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter:
Now I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘How will the new buildings/decorations help me max out?’ Well, here’s how:As you can see, Level 35 has increased the Indolence Rating requirement (+10, 1 more house), the Obedience Rating requirement (+10), the Tree-Hugging Rating requirement (+1,130), the Vanity Rating requirement (+1,600) & the Righteousness Rating requirement (+8).
|Popsicle Stick Patty & Selma||$8,300||Vanity||550|
|Popsicle Stick Disco Stu||$8,300||Vanity||550|
|DMV Limo||50 Donuts||Vanity||500|
|Disco Stu’s||180 Donuts||Obedience||10|
|Spinster City Apartments||$391,500||Obedience*||10|
|Springfield Pet Shop||90 Donuts||Obedience*||10|
*The game files are showing both the Apartments and the Pet Shop as contributing to Obedience, however my own experience is that the Pet Shop did positively impact my Consumerism rating. With the apartments I did notice my Indolence rating drop slightly when the game updated, and remained slightly dropped after the apartments were down. So it is possible they do contribute to Obedience instead of Indolence (like Krabappel’s apartment & Springfield Retirement Castle). Once I built 1 brown house my rating was back to 5 stars.
Let us know how your Conform-O-Meter rating is doing! Are you maxed out? If not, what area currently needs a boost?
Consumerism is the only rating I was NEVER able to max out, leaving me with 4 1/2 stars. I already have all buildings (im at level 35) plus 4 kwik-e-marts and its only at 3 stars. The only way I see to get there is buying a butt-load of k-e-m wich I dont want to because its gonna look ridiculous. With all premium decorations, my bonus is already at 30% so I say to hell with consumerism!
Yes, it’s one of the hardest to max out! Ferris Wheels (although a steep 120 donuts) are another item that you can have multiples of that will add to your consumerism rating.
But I completely agree, EA really needs to add more stores to TSTO so that it’s possible to max it out with out having Kwik-E-Marts take over!
