    Question IPH and the increase of Money

    So just a general question about money in this game. I've been playing a few months now and am in the lvl 130 range area and my IPH is still substantially lower than most the players I see (67k per hour). Even if I collect from every single building I have at once I only get about a million, so does anyone have a solution or formula that they use to help increase this?

    Accept that you'll never catch up. Iph rewards people that have been playing a long time, and you haven't. You could spend a lot of gold to catch up but it's not worth it.

    Set goals and do the best upgrades you can afford. It would be better to save for a night club once you hit $100k per hour, but it also depends how much you rob and how patient you are.

    At this point, some good buildings to develop are movie theaters, lofts, beachside inns, brownstones, and Dominican restaurants.

    I'm surprised you're already level 130 after just a few months. IPH is a game of time more than anything. Just keep building and upgrading and you'll get there.

    Go to the store in game, tap on Special and buy a bunch of mafia members. Then you can defend your 67k iph from robbers.

    Spend gold on upgrades and buy cash to do upgrades you can't afford. It's totally worth it and as an added bonus, when you get robbed you can laugh because you'll still collect more than your wussy, zero income, afraid to get robbed themselves rivals.

    One guy from SC claims to have taken 100m off me in one fight.

    Banking is for pussies.

    I disagree. Those buildings are more of a time sink than anything. Sticking to movie theatres and lofts until you are ready for nightclubs has pretty much always been the preferred upgrade path for those serious about building their economies.

    Also, if your income is not very good to start with, ignoring LTBs may be something to consider. While it is unfortunate to miss out on limited items, if purchasing the limited buildings leaves you constantly broke and unable to afford anything else including upgrades, buying them is helping you just slightly more than purchasing unneeded hood expansions.

    Lofts and Movie Theaters, then buy a NC and upgrade it to level 2 before you build another. lvl 2 NC has better ROI then a base NC. Screw a Brownstone, out of any of those other three mentioned the first I would suggest if i had to would be a Dominican

    Dominican Restaurant is the best way to go...
    I have one NC and in 6months my iph increased over 1mil with only 2 ltbs.
    I will update in 2 more months with mini and see where he is at
