Need to resync my collections they are all over the place after stuff in R/L

Thats the only way you can sync, problem is sometimes the game glitchs and the timer starts earlier than your collection actual collection time.

I usually give a friend (that is not in my mafia) the exact collection times so that they get the loot. I'd rather it go to someone I like. If you don't have someone like that, then you can post your collection times on Nicholost's "Kick Me While I'm Down" thread. --> http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?22588-The-Kick-Me-While-I-m-Down-Thread

On the other hand, If you want to just leave it, then it could be some nice bait for careless victims that you end up visiting later for a lil retribution.

I don't agree with syncing for players who check regularly. In general your 12/24/48 buildings trend towards your bed time then wake up time, anyway. If you're diligent in the morning (and same time in the evening for 12hr), anything hitting in between should eventually end up sync'd up. By syncing you're really just throwing away collections every time you sync. If you're constantly building/upgrading your syncable buildings you're wasting time and collections by pushing your times back.

I don't intentionally sync my buildings. It seems that I miss collections sometimes because I get busy so my buildings seem to slowly sync up naturally. If I see a building that's ready to collect, I take it.

How about timing upgrades to finish with the ccollection times?

Synching is easily done, usually only my 8's and 6's need to be synched about once every 2 weeks. So if my times get pushed back too late I let them get robbed and then make the next schelued collection.

So usually I collect my 8's at 7am 3pm and 11pm. So if it gets pushed back to 1130pm I let them get robbed then collect them all at 7am again. Until eventually the time gets pushed back again.

Timing upgrades to finish on sync is something I used to do but I don't bother anymore.

If you do wait the 24 hours, make sure you do it on the 2nd half of your 48 hour collections, this way you sync your 12/24/48s all at once.

Terribly complicated/confusing. Easier just to miss a day.

Depends how you look at it. If I sync, I can ensure that every 3 hours I'm collecting most of my income. If my buildings are out of sync, I'll be casually picking up money from each building inefficiently, and over the course of a couple weeks I may end up "missing" just as many collections as if I just skipped 1 day.

Another benefit to syncing (for all you banking folks out there) is that once every 2 days you'll get a massive collection where your 12/24/48 buildings all hit, and you can end up spending that large sum of money instead of depositing it and losing the 10% bank fee.

So if you're collecting every 3 waking hours you'll trend towards 12/24/48 in the morning and 3/6 morning, late morning, afternoon, late afternoon, evening and late evening.

I find it to tricky to keep 12 hours synched with 1 days gets too messy. However using this strategy can save you a pretty penny but takes finishing upgrades on sync right out of the picture. Something funny though, one 6 hour collection for me makes more than my 1 day collection.

A simple collection routine for 6,8,12,24,48 is as follows

5am-6's
7am-8's
10am-12's
11am-6's
3pm-8's
5pm-6's
9pm-24/48
10pm- 12's
11pm-6's, 8's

Been working for me for a while now. I don't bother with 3's and 1's.

That's pretty cool, Euchred. I generally revolve everything around my 12s, and set alarms every 3 hours thereafter. But ithat's probably because I'm too lazy to follow a strict schedule :)

mxz is on point here. I have never synced and never had it be a problem. I like to think this makes it hard for people to figure out my collection times because they are so erratic and is part of why I don't get robbed a lot

Life, upgrades, and missed collections happen all the time. I just collect and eventually they all sync back up. Don't be they guy checking to keep his buildings synced while on a hot date.

Ty for the advice could never do timing like that with work. Have to work nights every 3 weeks so need my 6/12/24 to not land during the night or morning

Was doing
6hr 6am 12pm 6pm and 12 am
12hr 12am and 12pm
8hr 6am 2pm and 10pm

Wasnt to bothered really with the 1hr and 3hr if i collected them or not, not really worth that much if robbed anyway
Do leave CC open tho on my ipad so if i do miss i still collect full amount of money

I have my 12/24 buildings synced together for a while now and it's worked out, when life happens and I miss the collection on the first 12 hour I just wait till the 24 to collect to re sync. As for my 6 and 8hrs I collect when I can but they always get robbed before I wake up. I look at it as bait because my favorite part of the game is the stalking of hoods to rob and there is nothing better then when someone robs your Russian restaurant and you find there nightclubs and hotels uncollected. I also find it funny when someone robs you and you keep hitting them back 'constantly for it and they get pissed off and leave nasty grams on your wall. Some people do take this game way to serious....

Cheat. That's as bad as any other glitch. Doesn't matter how you do it cheatings cheating.

Some of mine were out of sync due to upgrades and such. I went camping no cell service and got hit however after that I was able to re sync and get my 12 24 and 48 back in production.

If I have one out of sync I collect until I'm robbed then just wait until the rest come ready.

I have tried the step by step toward the main collection hour and made it a few times as when it is ready wait an hour and keep doing that until you catch up.

I guess just take the hit or try the step by step.

A foot note is I dont really worry about anything other than the 12 24 48 if I get them I do if not oh well.

The Flower shop, Warehouse and T Shirts are just a bonus, however I collect on them most of the time.

Leaving the app open is a sure way of collecting, funzio know about it so its up to them to fix it. Nothing feels better than collecting a robbed hood, someone leaves some trash talk, but at the end if it all it doesnt affect any records and you dont lose 3/5 of your income.

Everyone on here complains about other kinds of cheating, and are forever reporting glitchers including money glitchers. This is just another money glitch, it's cheating, funzio know about them all but they are all still cheating. If you agree with doing this then your getting an advantage you shouldn't and are on par with other gold, respect and money cheaters. Santa got hounded for cheating on this site yet how is this different

In my previous round of testing, it's been a while so not sure if anythings changed. But this doesn't work for buildings that payout over 100k per collection.
