When I started playing, my goal was to work in an oil rig as they pay the best salaries. As I worked towards gaining good work stats to join an oilrig while earning money from trading and flower running, I realized that the better goal to work towards was to own an oil rig instead of work in one as an employee.

I finally reached my goal when I was less than 1,000 days old. It's an achievement for me so I decided to post this after I noticed this forum name when a friend sent me a link to his posting of his achievement of 1 billion stats.

Now I need to work harder on my battle stats lol

Nah, that belonged to a friend, I was just trying to sell it for him. If I worked really hard I could probably have one within 6 months or so, maybe less but I haven't been active enough. I'm gonna take a break, when I come back I'll start saving for one!

Thank you everyone for your postings

I would like to share with all who are interested how I achieved my dream to own a 5star oil rig.

1) I am a very active player.
2) I travel for flowers whenever I can.
3) I lookout for buying and selling opportunities as often as I can.
4) I don't gamble.
5) I didn't use much drugs.
6) I didn't use donator packs till quite recently.
7) I maxed bank interest.
8) before I had 2bil, I invested bulk of my money in the bank every fortnightly coz that yielded the best returns with interest addons fortnightly
9) when I had my first 2bil, I invested every 2 months for the max amount of interest.
10) when I saved another 2bil, I bought my first 5star cruiseliner with some loans from friends.
11) with the profits generated by my cruiseliner, I was able to grow my money more quickly
12) I continued to buy 5star cruiseliners whenever I had enough money coz I had trusted friends to run them for me on 50/50 profit sharing basis
13) when I peaked at 7 5star cruiseliners, I had enough money to buy my 5star oil rig.

So, my secret is to work hard, be on constant lookout for bargains, spend within my means and invest whatever money I have for the maximum returns.

To Affluenza, Astro, Draunz3r and all of you who dream to own your own company, I hope my above pointers are of help. Feel free to mail me if you need further clarification coz I don't want to be more long winded here.

Good luck and have fun

It's very helpful to have friends you can trust like this it helps a TON. I achieved a rig in about this time spending 2-3 years saving up money however long it's been since i came back and stayed active in this game. Along the way I always help out friends i'm the guy where if people needed help couldn't afford a DP or anything, i'd help them out, just of course use your better judgement if the guy is going to be a leech and just try and get free stuff off you they aren't a friend and you need to drop them. But i've always been the guy i try to help friends out and help them get rich loan them cash when they need it give them a job in whatever company i ran and just pay them really good wages of a mil per day stuff like that. I've helped tons of people make a majority of their money in this game and when i needed help i had plenty of it.

I strongly Agree with #3, and #4.
Not so much on 5 and 6 though If your goals to get to be a strong player it's counter productive should find a way to make more money then you're daily spending that's always the goal.

Guess just incase anyone else is interested I can give the steps I took
1) Build a steady income plan like Maxing out your bank, FHC stock benefit
2) If you're very active buying and selling items, stocks, companies, even factions is probably the best profit you can make
3) if you don't buy and sell companies a cruiseline or sweet shop will add to that steady income you make
4) don't be a greedy bastard, help your trusted friends to build their steady incomes up and there literally is only 4 steady incomes i can think of that make a decent return, bank, FHC, running a company, and buying and renting out PI's

Note : obviously if you aren't active enough to trade building steady incomes like owning 7 cruise lines works wonders so if you have friends use them, if not just buy PI's and rent them out it's less money but it's still profit. And with the letting friends run a company for you at 50/50 profit split if your friend is poor this goes with what i was saying about helping friends out, if i gave the option to a few of my friends to run a sweet shop for me they keep 50% of cans and trade me the rest that's still a lot of money, especially if the player couldn't afford their own company you're helping your friend build up a good source of money by doing this...

and as a FYI i got loans of 9b total for helping me get the 19b i needed for my rig so if you got friends that cant afford companies letting them run one of yours for a 50/50 split is an amazing offer for them and they will be thankful enough to loan you there cash if you ever need it.

There's a few reasons I waited so long to get a company. One of which is I quit for about 2 years. When I came back I had nothing, before I quit I had nothing and no stats because I didn't know how to make money, it was the main reason I quit in the first place.

When I left, I left myself in Education so when I came back I got a BIG intel boost so I got myself a job in a cruise liner. After about a year I capped the bank, and from that point I started to make quite a bit of money. Not long after I capped the bank my friend introduced me to mugging, I managed to mug 2b in 12 days and I just invested it all in FHC and SYM. The rest of it went to drugs and graphics. I have spent probably 1b+ on graphics over my time since I cam back (but then again I have made more than 1.5b)

For a while my income matched the amount I was spending so I decided I needed to start actively making money, once I saved up enough for a cruise liner, I decided to buy one, I have only had a few days so its been good so far. If all goes well and its smooth sailing from here on in (pun intended) then I should be able to afford a 5* rig in no time.

I just want to say thanks to Smiles for all of the help she has given me in the past few days.

I just bought a 5* Cruiser with no prior experience of running a company, spending 1.6b on a company and having no clue how to run it was a little bit daunting, but thanks to the help of Smiles I have managed to fill it with employees, most of which stay 4-5* at all times. I'm glad I decided to buy it, and with the help of Smiles I have managed to keep it #2 in income (compared to other 30 man CLAs) for the past 2 days.

As I mentioned previously I'm saving up for an Oil Rig and now that I have a CLA generating income it makes getting there a little easier.
