    before respo a few weeks difference found a skateboard at 8/10 awareness and then 10/10 i found boxing gloves (few weeks before respo). Since respo i've found a shit ton of items but most expensive has been a screwdriver. Just completed the history education to find sculptures and pages from the qu'ran.†

    I have†10/10 awareness and the best thing I have found so far is a FHC.

    Some lucky bugger I know found a rabbit foot earlier this evening - probably the clubhouse leader for high value city finds to this point.†

    Many people with 10/10 haven't found anything good yet. So I doubt it is working as intended, if it is working as intended then it is seriously flawed compared to the old finds. I know of one person with 0 merits on awareness who found an SE. I'm sure there are more out there that just aren't active in the forums. Huge change from the way it was before, when not only was it said that merits mattered but you actually noticed the difference.

    8/10 currently, with Fireworks job, and Educ for added Awareness.

    Personally I think that †it is working as it is intended, but despite the changes the chances of finding a high value item are still A) random and B) †slim regardless of your awareness level.

    It's not like maxing out awareness will guarantee a steady stream of medium to high value items as most of them will still be dump bait, †but players are†finding 3-4 items a day now - which is far more than anyone ever used to.†

    It's a step backwards if that is the case, people who actually looked around the city before respo and invested into awareness found those medium to high value items on what seemed to be a regular basis. Trading in quality for quantity is a huge step backwards in my opinion. I know I don't stand alone when saying so either. Many users with 10/10 and max awareness went from an SE or high value item once a month or so, to a can of E being the best find to date since respo.

    I was one of those people with 10/10 and max awareness and I certainly wasn't finding SE's or high value items once a month and I doubt it was "many users" who were getting anywhere near that when you maxed out at somewhere around one city find a day (with the occasional good day where you'd find 2 or three items) - they were still mostly crap.

    The one thing I can agree on is that artifact finds have been significantly nerfed so the number of low-to-medium value item finds has diminished ratio-wise - is that perhaps what you're referring to?

    I don't really have the time to spend searching around the map looking for items. I might reset my merits and not bother about awareness anymore.

    I have to say that I agree with Manny I was one of those people (with 9 awareness/edu/and was in and out of an awareness company) †that found SE's on what could be called a fairly regularly basis, every few months or so compared to some who have never found an SE. †I agree that finds have always been random, and most are not worth anything however before RESPO I †made a point of going everywhere in Torn via the city link on the sidebar and I was rewarded for that. ††

    As I understand it now, the rule of thumb is supposed to be the more awareness you have means more items spawned and of better quality. †So for all my eye strain and extra time taken to search the city †I have found guns, guns, guns, candy, oh yes and guns! †loads of them but Ive not had one decent find...unless a senet pawn and an energy can is categorised as a decent find..oh and lucky me, Ive also found a brick which I'd previously stopped tripping over more than 2 years ago.†

    If you found an SE ever few months then you were one of the luckier players - personally I haven't found an SE in well over a year with 10/10 awareness / psych course done and also doing everything via the city links across a 16 hour playing day and I was averaging 7-10 item finds a week across the journey when I'd been playing in a city-find friendly manner (awareness never really affected the quality of finds in the old system afaik, just the volume). †

    One thing to put this all in perspective - we're 5 weeks in and players are finding high value items. †I'd agree that the incidence of low-end artifact finds seems to be a fair bit lower than it was, but I wasn't ever expecting a 200-300% increase in volume to extrapolate out to a similar increase in the number of valuable item finds.

    Looks like admins might have perhaps gotten around to sorting out the exploit?

    The map images had an update. To stop them from loading just add "http://cdn.dev-www.torn.com/images/citymap/release_optimized/*png" without quotes to your custom block list.

    Mr_Charlie [452500]

    For fun I checked skate board and boxing gloves a few days ago to see how many were in circulation. Skate board went up from 1881 to 1889 and boxing gloves went up from 1935 to 1939, not taking into account how many have been used. So they are being found, for sure.

    In the past month skateboards have gone down in circulation over 4%. Boxing gloves have reduced by over 2%. For sure fewer city finds of SE's probably due to having to search now instead of just be active in the city.
