^ You have to actually log in and click the City link in order to find items. Your personal stats show you don't seem to be doing this too often

2: Chance indicator
Q: How often could I even get an item?
Q: Could I know at some point, that clicking for the next XXX times/minutes/hours does also not get me an item?
A: Torn avoids finding a new item after you already found one for a certain time. At the moment nobody knows how much time this is. Some players find one item exactly 1 hour after they found another item, but not within less time. So it may be an hour.




This is inaccurate. I recently found 2 items within the same hour period, meaning it is possible to find more than 1 item per hour:

11/01/13
7:59:03 PM You found the item Blunderbuss while walking around the city!
11/01/13
7:07:48 PM You found the item Raven MP25 while walking around the city!

Hey, I have 7 awareness, and had 3+ awareness for most of my game time as I used the merits as soon as I could to get it... but I've only ever found 4 items, and they've all been small items like cuban cigars... is there something I'm doing wrong?

I wonder if it is true that some drugs have a negative effect on awareness? I have seen people in the forums say xanax is bad if you want to find things. I have 10/10 awareness but seldom find things.

I have also noticed several times that I have found things while I was on a flight which seems a bit strange to me but maybe there is some delay in the event that causes this? There is a small time delay after you have taken a xanax for example before you get the event.

I wonder if newer players seem to find more stuff because they spend more time in the city as they can't travel?

This thread is an FAQ for city findings. Bump and rate it cug.png to keep it alive and help others.


The topic says it, I want to show you how to find (;maybe rare); items while walking around the city. Everyone knows:; You have to click into the city. But that seems not to be all. Some more detailed questions and answers about that:;

[colour=darkgoldenrod]
1:; Click rate
Q:; Does clicking my forefinger into a muscle ache gain the chance of finding items?
Q:; Does it make any difference if I click more often into the city?
A:; Multiple clicking increases the chance of finding items. Some rumours have been around that there could have been a maximum limit, whereupon a federal jail warning follows. But this limit does no longer exist.

2:; Chance indicator
Q:; How often could I even get an item?
Q:; Could I know at some point, that clicking for the next XXX times/minutes/hours does also not get me an item?
A:; Torn avoids finding a new item after you already found one for a certain time. At the moment nobody knows how much time this is. Some players find one item exactly 1 hour after they found another item, but not within less time. So it may be an hour.

3:; Reload
Q:; Does it make any difference if I click on "reload" or if I hit "City"?
A:; Clicking "City" and reloading the city page is exactly the same.Bumm
Bump

4:; Click order
Q:; After I clicked on "City", do I have to click on another link before it makes sense to click it again?
A:; No. There is no force to click anywhere else.

5:; Awareness
Q:; Is there any other way to incease my chances of finding items in the city?
A:; Yes. A higher "awareness" increases your chances of finding items.
You have multiple possibilities to rise your awareness. It is unknown how much effectiveness every single method really has. Trust your feelings. These are your options:;
- Take drugs (;Ecstasy or LSD);.
- Use merits (;spend them on "Awareness - Increases ability to find items");.
- Work at a company that has awareness increasing job specials (;Firework Stand or Candle Shop);.
- Do the "Attention and Awareness" (;PSY2680); education.


6:; Happiness
Q:; Does a higher happiness have a positive effect on my awareness?
A:; Maybe. We are still trying to find proven facts.

7:; Clock time
Q:; Do I find items only when the minutes are at XX:;57 to XX:;00?
Q:; Are my chances higher at XX:;57 to XX:;00?
A:; No. Items are also found outside these times. We are still investigating if chances are higher at certain times or if it's cluster appearance is just based on crons.
[/colour]

If you post any more questions about this topic, I will add them here. I will collect all helpful answers to this. Emendations are also very welcome. Feel free to discuss and post in this thread, or help keeping the FAQ updated.

There IS a limit to the number of clicks, you don't go to fed, but after you've clicked the city TWICE in one hour you can no longer find anything for that hour. Max you can find in one hour is TWO items because of this.


True, but it's not necessarily your first two clicks of that hour. I've been in and out of the city several times in an hour. gambling, viewing the item market...etc. and after several clicks on the city, is usually when I find an item. rarely do I find one on my first couple of click on the city.

There's often a lag between the fund and the event notice which can be a couple minutes but the item shows up in your inventory at the time of the find (;as opposed to when the event notice appears);.
Within one time clock hour you can only find two but the record in a 60 minute period was four finds (;all shite); last I checked

How good are the items found? Can it be literally any item in the game, or is it just a few different things?

ALMOST anything. Not collectibles, but stat enhancers and rare items (;like RPG's); can be found.

No stock benefit items or staff items.

That';s wrong :;;|

For #2, if you';re very lucky you can find 2 items simultaneously, I';ve found 2 items in the same hour within 10 minutes of each other.....the only limit is the 2 clicks to the city (;;which I did there);; and I wouldn';t be able to find anything more until the next hour.


Then you do not find anything if you are an active player. Because you get to the other links by clicking on the City to get your appropriate menu. I may play for an hour:;; City, mission, city, forums, city, dump, city, properties, city job, city, bank, etc. This means that I am not going to find anything, even though i am an active player? There seems to be a conflict here. Shit.

Sorry for the confusion:;

Bogie says:; "There IS a limit to the number of clicks, you don't go to fed, but after you've clicked the city TWICE in one hour you can no longer find anything for that hour."


All of us active players click City dozens of times an hour just to navigate.

That means that we are not eligible to find anything after the two first clicks.

Thank you.

Aaah, lol.

But as an active player you will be online more over a 24 hour period giving you a higher chance of finding items. Like has been said before, if you are active in the city twice an hour for 24 hours you have the chance to find 48 items.

That is still faulty logic.

Because you are active, by clicking City many times an hour to navigate, you will not find anything at all.

(;Assuming that if you click more than 2 time an hour it will kill your chances.);

Personally, i have found that clicking city and instead of reloading, clicking item market has high chances. i had found a 15m statue and a baseball bat doing this. you should give it a shot
