View Full Version : Gold Money Buildings

Been building up my gold pot once again and am taking a look at some gold money buildings.

We have as follows:

Name/Gold............................Collection........ ........IPH @ Level 10
__________________________________________________ _____
Solar Array/60 gold.....................4 hr.........................$33,759
Geothermal Plant/240 gold............6 hr........................$280,000
Diamond Mine/500 gold...............12 hr........................$225,000
Water Treatment Plant/200 gold...18 hr........................????????
Coal Mine/400 gold.....................24 hr.........................$86,250
Biodome/300 gold.......................48 hr.........................$65,000

Right now, I'm tossing up whether to save for the Diamond Mine, or the Geothermal Plant. Though the Geothermal Plant brings in 55,000 more at level ten, I'm not sure what the upgrade costs are and how they compare. This is important because I need to know which one's cheaper, which I can level up faster and easier meaning more income and faster. The collection time for the Diamond mine is perfectly convenient at 12 hours, easy to sync, and easy to collect, I'm really hoping it's cheaper to upgrade than the Geothermal which is 10 million to get to level 2! Anybody else have anything to add? In my mind, the IPH of every other building is pitiful in comparison to these two. Even though I really don't want to consider them, any and all thoughts welcome. :)

It is 10 million to upgrate the diamond mine to level 2 also. I have a level 2 diamond mine but forgot the upgrade cost. Pretty high though.

I have no idea where you found out the level 10 numbers for these but to me looks like the geo plant is more worth it. Bigger pay, with more payouts.

All figures came from EnjoyLife's spreadsheet.

I guess I have my answer regarding the upgrade costs. Damn that's high!

The vary reason my diamond mines sit at level 1 and 2.

I didn't see any gold money buildings except the solar array in his spreadsheet.

I have never seen the figures for gold buildings. I have yet to be surprised by that.

I sent him #s for Coal Mine 1-7 and Geothermal 1-4

I wonder what every gold money building is at 10... :rolleyes:

Biodome is my least favorite. A level 6 gives like 1.4M every two days.

What's the cost of a level 3 diamond mine, WP?

Could ya send me those Cope? I'd like to make a good choice here.

And, WP-the income figures for all the gold buildings except the Water Treatment plant are there. What's not there is the times and cost to upgrade. Maybe you have an old one saved on your browser that it has cached for you?

Upgrade times seem super fast, and build times are nearly instant.

I don't recall. In 53 hours I could tell you. :p

What is the current one? I viewed EnjoyLife's latest thread spreadsheet.

Check out the bottom tabs, Enjoy Life's Version Money Buildings. Quite useful, I like it better than the other one, even though it has less info. Fewer places to get lost, lol.

Thanks. Guess I never really checked that tab. I never really liked the spreadsheet idea. Wish there was a better way to show the info.

Hope that page is correct because I just downloaded it.

Just spent the last two hours making my own money spreadsheet the way I like. :)

Building - Level - Output - Cost

No other numbers that I don't care about.

Also spaced it out more so everything isn't pushed together.

Hehe, that's the reason I like EL's spreadsheet, less extraneous info.

I'd keep it at six, hell I might modify mine here. Thanks for the idea WP!

Since it's personal I don't have to worry about kiddies changing it around. Also was able to fix the mistakes I ran into.

Anything I should be aware about? Hopefully easily fixed....

Nothing major. I trusted the numbers, so as far as I know they are right.

Just ran into a couple with the order mixed up.

Gotcha, yeah the numbers are what I'm concerned about. For some reason the order gets fecked up every now and then, and when I try to fix it on my end, I end up making it worse... I don't submit anything, so I'm not taking the blame for the other nonsense, lol-but yeah... I didn't realize I could save it, so now modifying makes things way easier.

Hey, I noticed upgrade costs increase about (5/3) times that of the previous cost. So given that both geothermal and diamond mine cost 10mil for 1 -2 upgrade, the rest would look as such:



2 -3 : 16,666,667
3 - 4 : 27,777,778
4 - 5 : 46,296,296
5 - 6 : 77,160,494
6 - 7 : 128,600,823
7 - 8 : 214,334,705
8 - 9 : 357,224,508
9 - 10 : 595,374,181

You guys might have already figured that out, but here it is in case not.

Upgrades end with 0's so those figures are most likely incorrect.

Well they're just estimates but should be accurate. Comparing previous to new upgrade costs in the spreadsheet, most buildings follow the same pattern. New upgrades cost roughly (5/3) times that of the previous one. So these were just to give an idea...not claiming they're the true #'s. Funzio probably uses the (5/3) thing as a guideline, and then makes the numbers look nice. I could be wrong though cause the Infirmary does jump from like 1.1m - 3m or so..lol. But that's just an outlier :) In most cases they're around 1.6 - 1.8 times the previous upgrade cost (looking at the trends for multiple buildings).

Good work buddy. I wasn't turning down your idea just stating that they weren't 100% exact. :)

Johnny, made a thread with my version of the spreadsheet.

It's one of a kind! A photo spreadsheet. :p

Np, thanks for clarifying cause it made me go back and double check too. Didn't mean to get in defensive mode , think I was just embarrassed for not giving a better first impression on the forums haha :)
