View Full Version : Sell 1 hour buildings?

Would you sell your one-hour buildings? Here's my situation:

I have 2 level-2 Beach Nightclubs ($3851/hr x 2) and 2 level-1 Adult Movie Theaters ($3851/hr x 2). I recently started a $40 million expansion, but truthfully, I don't NEED the space. I don't plan on building anymore money buildings until the Casino opens and I have ample space for the 30 or so Missile Turrets I plan to build.

I don't have consumable explosives, so that's not a concern either. However, I like to put only a few buildings on each block and try to make my hood look attractive. I feel like the one-hour buildings are taking up space and throwing off the feng shui of my hood.

Would you sell or keep? Why?

What's your current iph? No point asking how often you collect as I imagine it's pretty much every hour anyway just like most of the rest of us

Paulio, you are further in the game than I, but I hate the one hour buildings. I have the sports bar for the stupid goal of reaching L10, but it's just that, a goal. With work, and no cell reception here, it's hard to worry about the 1 hour buildings. Personally, I'd say to sell, recoup half the money, and make your town look nice with whatever else you want to add. To each, their own

No consumable bombs, then keep them. You can expand for feng shui.

(i only have arcades not sure if there are any more better 1 hr buildings and how much they pay)

it depends on if you are on most hours to collect them and if they really make much of a difference and would drop your money a lot if you did get rid of them,

depending on your answers to these questions you decide to keep or delete

@Olly, cuurent iph is $670409. I hate the the one-hour buildings give me a false sense of iph

@Dr B, that's part of the problem. $40 million for the current expansion, so I assume the next will be well over $50 million. Also, both buildings are kinda ugly, don't ya think?

At that IPH they're verging on completely useless. My IPH was half that a couple of weeks ago and I sold similar buildings to redecorate and go for a spacious look. I haven't noticed any physical decrease in my income at all. Wish I'd have done it sooner to be honest

My thinking was it'll cost peanuts to get them back if I ever changed my mind so it's not set in stone.

I have my 1h buildings so as to open the event boxes...Plus, I do not have to unbank money...

I would keep them...

If you're a numbers person, those 4 buildings combined only make up 2.3% of your IPH as well.

Thanks for your replies. I think I know what I'm going to do, but selling the Adult Theaters is going to be difficult, considering I spent gold on them.

You have to consider that nudie is a regular customer to these adult theaters...Do not delete them...

I did a $7M upgrade the other day just so I could write "mxz" in Mailboxes. Didn't want to delete my useless buildings, yet. All comes down to personal preference...some like their hood crowded with lots of buildings, but I can see why asthetically pleasing hoods would want them gone.

See I really don't get that logic of using the 1 h buildings to open boxes and so you don't unbank money. I mean, I see the mathematical logic but in the grand scheme of things that minute amount of money and the 10% fee attached to that small amount of money is meaningless. You can bank your 1h money 100 times over and barely notice it when you're on a high IPH.

It's not a true image of your real IPH in my opinion and never make enough money to have any significant impact

Edit: gold 1h buildings are slightly different. I have some crappy gold buildings I won't ever sell regardless of their income.

Sell. The next expansion IS $50M and those buildings ARE ("kinda") ugly.

I do suggest keeping at least enough 1h buildings to cover the cost of opening event boxes. You don't have to, but it is convenient. I have a single Modern Loft to do that job. When there is no event I collect it as much as I can until it gets robbed and then I just let it sit uncollected until the next event. Sure the ML isn't exactly a great looking building either, but it has a purpose.

Since you already have an AMV I would say maybe to keep one and upgrade it to level 4. Or you could sell everything and get a Modern Loft to level 5, but the AMV has cheaper upgrades and only needs to be taken to level 4.

hmmm.

Id keep them until the expansion is done. In the past I sold them and it left my hood feeling empty around the edges

I have one hour buildings just for events. It's not the money savings I do it for as much as the convenience. When I see the money balloons above them, I know I have an event box ready. So that's a plus right there. Collecting them and opening a box is a quite a few taps less than opening the bank and extracting exactly what I need.

I would suggest no more expansions for the time being as they are getting way too expensive.
My next expansion is 20 mil and I have an income of over 1 mil in 25 hours.
Best to figure out those buildings that give the lowest income/square and delete those taking into consideration the collection times. For instance beach nightclub has a tycoon score of 68.75/square/hr whereas a level 2 brownstone is 30.56.
Even though the brownstone is inferior I would delete the level 2 beach nc before the brownstone as one hour collection vs 24 hours is a no brainer based on the number of times I log in daily.
Also at your high level I would be weeding out the one hour collection buildings sooner than later to deter robberies.

Your hood is also sadly empty of good buildings to rob right now. Stop being so on time :P

Paulioooo you already know my long term goal is to get 2 of every building so I'm gonna go with the side that will tell you to keep em. I think if you want to get rid of something delete the beach nightclubs cuz you only paid in game cash for them, but the gold you paid for them should be a small reason to keep em. Just do whatever makes you happy.

Keep your one hour buildings to supply you for your events.

You said fung shui... for that reason, I would sell.

I know it is not a "good" reason, but it is how you feel. If it is off with them, get rid of them, imho. And you'll have a decent iph w/o them, I think (didn't do the math)

use the hour buildings to help pay for the events. you collect them so regularly you wont need to bank the income from them during events.
