Ah Home, where your kids despise you, your furniture is never the same, and your wife always tries to run you over with the car. Yes a home can be so many things to different people and in Tapped Out Homes (Houses) are what contribute to your Conform-o-Meter Indolence rating…see I was going somewhere with this!
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.
Let’s break into some houses shall we? Don’t worry Homer left his keys in the door again…
You can open up your Conform-O-Meter and check where you’re currently sitting with your Indolence rating by tapping the stars on the bottom left of your main screen, while your in Springfield (Krustyland has it’s own Krust-O-Meter which you can read about here). When you tap on the stars this is what opens up:
Your Indolence rating is impacted by the number of houses in your town (or as TSO Says “Buy houses for families to fight and sleep in”). Lucky for us the Indolence is one of the easiest ratings to max out in TSTO and every house has the same points value, 10 points.
So just how many points do you need to max out your Indolence Rating? Here’s a handy guide to help you max out at all levels:
|Level||Points||# of Houses Needed|
|1 thru 5||60||6|
|14 thru 15||190||19|
|16 thru 17||200||20|
|22 thru 23||260||26|
|26 thru 27||300||30|
|38 thru 41||470||47|
|42 thru 45||490||49|
So, which buildings help your Indolence rating?
The simple answer is A LOT, here’s the break down…
Spinster City Apartments
Farms and Shacks
Crazy Cat House
D’Amico Summer Home
Fat Tony’s Compound
Springfield Wax Museum
Springfield Retirement Castle
Van Houten House
Bad Dream House
Cool Brown House
Solid Gold Mansion
Museum of Natural History
Each of these buildings will help with the Indolence rating. Remember each one is worth 10 points.
So how do you hit the magic number? While we certainly have more options when it comes to houses (over stores) I still think we could use more. Wookiee does too! Hopefully with the updates coming out as often as they do EA will provide some new houses for us to add to our towns. After all, it’s getting confusing to find which Orange House Dr. Hibbert is selling organs in!
