Ah neighbors..those pesky people with out whom you’d have no power tools to “borrow”. And in TSTO they’re the friends you can’t reach 5 stars with out! Your social interaction with your neighbors plays the main role in your Conform-O-Meter Socialism Rating. So by being the social butterfly and having neighbors and visiting them regularly you improve your Socialism rating & you’re that much closer to maxing out your 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.
So just how does the Socialism rating work? Let’s find out…..
You can open up your Conform-O-Meter and check where you’re currently sitting with your Socialism 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:
The game files are a little vague on the details behind how you earn points towards the Socialism rating. Since there are no buildings or decorations that can contribute to this it’s purely based on the tappers social interaction in the game (or as TSTO says “Make friends and visit them”). So just how many points do you need to max out the Socialism Rating? Here’s a hand little guide to help you at every level of TSTO:
|1 Thru 8||12|
So now that you know how many points you’ll need you’re probably wondering how you earn them. Well, as I mentioned above the game files are very vague in just how you earn socialism points. All the files indicate is that Tappers earn 1 point for every social interaction. So based on that information, combined with the “Make friends and visit them” in the Conform-O-Meter box I would assume that it means that every time you visit a neighbor and tap on 3 buildings you earn 3 points.
The best advice I can give you when it comes to the Socialism rating is visit your friends and tap their buildings! If you have any further insight on the Socialism rating please feel free to share in the comments below.
