Conforming to EA: Breaking Down the Conform-O-Meter

The coverage of the Conform-O-Meter is long overdue here at Addicts, and my apologies for not getting it you addicts sooner!

The Conform-O-Meter is something we’ve been mentioning on Addicts for a while now, yet some newer tappers (and older ones too) might be wondering what the Conform-O-Meter is and why it should matter to you.

The stars on the bottom left of your main Springfield screen (next to the level) show you the current rating for your Springfield.  These stars are based on your Conform-O-Meter rating, and show your conformity rating.  Your conformity rating can range from 0 to 5 stars (1/2 stars are awarded as well) and indicates how well your playing the game based on EA’s standards for TSTO.  The game will award a bonus percentage for every star, or half star, you earn up to 5 stars.  For example 4 stars equals a 4% bonus.  The bonus is applied whenever you collect money from character tasks or building rent.  The image above is from my Springfield, and as you can see I’m at 4.5 stars.  Continue reading
