Very Well! You don't want to see how I manage currants. When I get up to 500k... I then say I can't go under 500k. But then in a day or two it goes down to 10k. Then I got back up by selling cubimals.. then down.. then up. It's a roller coaster!
I try to keep between 100k but damn, if it gets higher I'm tempted to spend it all on cubi boxes. just like yesterday. I had 150k, spent 50k and just got commons ¬¬ ugh! I'm so unlucky. I wish there was a bank so I could save up there and would not want to take my money back for anything cause it would have fees and stuff.
Prior to level 20, I tried to get up to keeping around 100K. Now that I'm approaching level 30, it's more like I try to keep 200K banked. Just seems easier to make/gather more currants the higher you go...but I will say, that I've not gotten a cubimal addiction yet...was saving up for all the major changes, and if it looks like I don't need currants for much, I'm heading to the toy store.. ;)
I get up to about 600k, and then lapse back into my cubimal obsession. Then I will hover around 1 - 10k. After deciding enough is enough, I slowly build back my currant stash thinking, you can do it Havok, this time its going to be different! Who needs hundreds of cubimals anyway! Then I pass a toy vendor, and to my delight, I DON'T SUCCUMB! Weeks pass, my currant stash steadily increasing... but then, a creeping urge hits. Maybe just one. Maybe it will be another rook, and I can profit.
One becomes five. Five becomes twenty. Twenty becomes forty. I stray when my bags are finally full. Currants depleted, and I realize once again that I do not need these cubimals! I am better than this! I can do this! No more cubimals! Only currants!
And then the currants rise, if only to fall once again.
Say, if anyone here wants to write a few tips as to how they make so many currants (and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org), I'd really appreciate it! (I can work on a Glitch Strategy Guide to Getting Rich based on information from people who know the subject best :D).
If I can get back to the one and a half million before the change I will be happy with that...I'm almost there but at moment not earning as I should due to other ( in-game ) commitments.. But I'm confident I will easily have that amount and then try and stay around there for the change over.
Then I pass a toy vendor, and to my delight, I DON'T SUCCUMB! Weeks pass, my currant stash steadily increasing... but then, a creeping urge hits. Maybe just one. Maybe it will be another rook, and I can profit.
This is exactly what happens to me!
I did make it to 1 million, then I decided to go ahead and buy a GNG (and a doll - oops!). Now I'm back up to 800k, but it's getting harder and harder to avoid the call of the toy vendor. :/
I save every currant I can but since the reset I've only saved up 545,000 currants. I have earned as much as 4000 currants in a game day and I've never purchased a cubimal. I also sell everything, never donate it. When I see things like a dusty stick selling for 11million currants I think I must be playing wrong.
Over a million--not sure why. Wood planks started my bankroll--now I'm hoarding most of those for re-set. Now my income comes from butterfly milk, meat, planks, bling and music boxes (the primary reason I garden and squeeze chickens). I also sell some awesome stew. I sell everything to the Tool vendor on Level 4 East because I've found that usually the auction fees take away any profit you would otherwise make selling in auction (with some notable exceptions like herb-related goods).
@havok, i'm with you in this one - but i never got past 150k before the curse hit.
i was thinking about this yesterday actually: how much do you guys think cubimals are like a primary structtral element of the game? would glitch even work without them? why would people do things? how would we get rid of all the money we (kind of) make (considering the in-game economy is a bit unfinished)?
for me they were perhaps the main drive behind mid-to-high-level playing... that time when you max out some of the skills and money seems to just start trickling in sort of unannounced.
I usually average around a number. It was 50k, then after selling emblems (big money boost), it was 70k, then 120k, then 200k, now 700k. Basically, average around a number. Don't go too stray. Then after a big money boost (selling a large amount of things is the best way to really keep your money up without wasting it), I average around a new number.
Ah, you are carrying a reasonable bunch. Most people are now carrying around a lot of money. Well, my type of "a lot" of money kind of has a low standard. I just carry around 200K and am content with that lol. You have a pretty good supply of money! Just keep it that way and don't splurge until the update is passed.
Well, I never spend currants on anything, and I sell a lot of the things that I gather. I've got over 6k meats stockpiled, why save more? Therefore my bankroll is slightly in excess of 2.1 million currants. I have no idea what to do with it. I've gotten the cubimal trophy and frankly the dolls look scary to me; so nothing to spend them on. I guess I'll just keep saving until such time as I need to start making furniture for my home. ^__^
