View Full Version : Working out the Vault of Cash

01-17-2012, 04:09 AM
This topic is obviously not important, but gaining knowledge always is. Without certain members of the community (Tramp Stamp, Ahail.., Peacock, Jijy) we would not know every possible detail about the economy, drop %'s and their locations, and how drfence buildings truely affect your defence score.

There are still one or two things I cannot explain about the game but I feel we know a good 80-90% of how it all works.

On that note lets just work out how income affects the Vault of cash.

Vault of cash is made from this simple equation: (Bag of Cash * 20) * 1.5

So to find out how the Vault amount shows what it does we need to find out how Bag of Cash works first. ~Certes told me Bag of Cash starts at $5,000. Can someone with a higher level and a 0 income hood that Bag of Cash is still $5,000 just to eliminate level having anythingto do with it.

Otherwise It has to have something to do with income per hour.]#

My Bag of Cash: $593,000
My Income per hour: $138,541

One thing I have noticed is that all the $$$ purchases end in a clean 000. If I wipe off my 541 and use only the 138,000 I can multiple that by 4.3 and get 593,400. As they last 3 digits of any amount the 400 rounds it down to $593,000.

My theory:

Take your income/hour (only use a clean number so if your income per hour is 34,765 then round it down to 34,000). Multiple that number by 4.3 and you should more or less have your Bag of Cash number.

Just want to test this out so we can find out how another thing in the game works.

Nope. I'm on $67470/hr and the Bag of Cash is worth $304000. However, 67000*4.3=288100

So I have to multiply by a bit over 4.5 to get the BoC amount.

Level = 159
Income = $231201
Bag of Cash = $977,000

= 4.225x my income

NB I have a Loft build in progress and a Loft upgrade in progress which will affect this slightly.

what on earth is bag of cash? sorry so confuzed -.-

the $5 in game cash purchase. Instead of buying gold you can strictly buy cash. It's generally always better to buy gold tho.

This is an interesting topic, as I never really thought too much into it and just assumed everything from the bag to the vault was based solely on level. I'd never asked anyone else what theirs showed. I have a nightclub upgrade in progress and a crematorium build in progress so this might effect these numbers just a bit, but here they are.
