Basic Money Making Guide

1. Wheating

Wheating is the process of planting all your fields with wheat and constantly harvesting and selling them to get rare items. It is easily the highest profit and xp in the game. Please note that the profit of wheating is in the rare items and not the wheat. You should simply get rid of the wheat as fast as possible when wheating to gain more profits. If you can’t sell your wheat fast enough you might need to expand your RSS, lower the price of your wheat, place more ads, or switch to another crop which you can sell faster like corn. Wheating profit example: 70 fields = 6,000 gold per hour and 2,100 xp per hour.

2. Trees and Bushes

All trees and bushes produce 13 fruit. If you have enough trees and bushes, the time it takes for a tree to fruit is completely irrelevent. The only limiting factor of trees and bushes is saws and axes which you can get tons of from wheating. Currently, each saw and axe is worth 500 gold+ to me because I have so many trees and bushes. Trees profit example: 1 Cocoa tree yields 13 fruit worth 1,123. 1 Saw costs 54 max and 1 Cocoa tree costs 550. 1,123 – 604 = 519 Profit per Saw.

3. Sell in RSS at Max

Selling anything and everything in your RSS at max price will generally give you the most money in the game. However, you will get no xp for doing this. Additionally, during certain special events it is more profitable to do the event than to sell in the RSS.

4. Special Events

During the truck or boat event it is most profitable to do that type of order instead of selling in the RSS. If you know how to play the Little People event properly you can make hundreds of thousands. If you’re not sure whether a particular event is profitable, simply search for info on it in these forums. There are also some links in this guide.

5. Barn, Silo, and Land Expansions

A larger barn and silo, as well as more land is always profitable in the long run.

6. When you’re too Rich

At some point you will most likely be too rich. I currently have everything maxed and expanded and I huge surplus of coins. Coins aren’t so important to me anymore and it’s more about the xp. However, I still find it useful to know how to make a lot of money because nearly all my neighbors need money and I like to give money away and help out. For example: let’s say you need some blue sweaters to fill a boat. If you have the coins you can purchase the sweaters and essentially convert money to xp. Hypothetically, if you were insanely rich, money could be completely irrelevant to you; but at that point it’s my recommendation to help out new players or give some away.
