    Thirty-two items now on the City Map simultaneously. 

    The new spawns... a Hammer and finally, something awesome, a Cesium-137. 

    That's my 50th overall city find. I had eighteen finds before starting this little project. The only other noteworthy items had been a Script of the Quran and a Black Senet Pawn.

    The map is pretty cluttered with items right now. Only a few sections don't have an item and in three, maybe four spots there are clusters of three to four items. One thing is pretty certain. If you were to not check your map for a few weeks, you'd have a few things to find. And as of yet, no one has mentioned items vanishing for good. All of mine are there and I check them periodically to make sure they haven't changed for some reason.

    That's an interesting find.

    But do items spawn only when you log in regularly and maybe click the city link a few times?

    That's been my thought. The very act of looking at all his items so often could be part of why he has so many finds.

    As mentioned in other posts, I'm built for city finds. I have the Education bonus, 10/10 Awareness, I use a lot of LSD and I'm very active. The only upgrade I don't have is from working in a candle shop/fireworks stand. I'm also in the habit of clicking City once an hour. I use the City Watch download and have it set to indicate when I hit 12 Nerve (one hour) and I do my crimes and I check my mail, or use the gym or anything that's used in the City, even if it's just briefly checking out the auctions.

    kingjosh, read the thread. There are explanations on how to make searching the city easier. While I'm scanning, I use the arrows. I start in the upper left and click right until it reaches the edge, then I click down twice and then go left until it reaches the edge and again, click down twice. Rinse and repeat.

    Two more spawns. A throwing knife and a bottle of champagne. Total of items on the city map simultaneously is now thirty-eight (38). 

    I just traded in a bunch of saved up army points and just sent in an application to a Fireworks Stand to totally max out my Awareness for this project.

    I've been doing a bit of a test over the weekend whilst being playing entirely on mobile torn - with clicking on the city quick links and donating / praying at the church I've still been generating items at a regular pace (3-4 a day from the looks of things).

    One other thing is I noted that Garm mentioned he has 50-odd items - I'd be at a similar count (3-4 items a day most days and at least 50 items in total - probably more) but one thing I did notice was that not visiting the city as often for a day or two coincided with less items having spawned than usual the next time i crawled through the city map.

    I suppose it's fair that max'ing out Awareness improves quality of items and spawn rate, but it sucks for new players.  Just my opinion, but I think new players should be encouraged to put points in things that will make them more competitive, rather than a chance thing, which is what Awareness is - ultimately.  it was really fun as a new player to find something really great.  


    So what happens then is more senior players and richer players will just get richer and the newbs will have to struggle harder. The falling prices in the Item Market just with all the changes have hurt new players already.  Things that I was able to buy and sell for a nice profit have crashed and now that I can fly that's not critical, but I'm sure glad I started the game when I did.  Not sure at this point if I can recommend it strongly to friends as starting out will be so hard based on their ability to make money to improve their character.

    Perhaps -- an idea -- perhaps new players to a certain level could be given a grace high awareness to let them see what it's like and help them along their way?  Just an idea :)

    I can't believe what I just read.  I had to work for my merits that I put on awareness.  I also have played for a lil over a year.  I also have played this game a lot and never expected that I should get great items as a new player.   I've put time and effort into this game and I expect nothing from anyone!!!  You sound like a spoiled brat! That stuff should just drop from the sky for you!  Grow up!!!

    Don't check hourly. You could check monthly if you wanted to - they stick around forever just waiting to be found. Checking hourly, daily or monthly makes no difference. You'll find the same amount of items.

    If that is indeed correct then it might possibly indicate that item spawns do not happen when you're searching the map itself (which is what I'd been suspecting for a while).

    If that is indeed correct then it might possibly indicate that item spawns do not happen when you're searching the map itself (which is what I'd been suspecting for a while).

    That's what it's seemed like. It's one of the first things people tested for when they spawned cheap items. But it's good to know that there's no decay point as now I don't feel rushed to pick up the Cesium-137 on my screen for fear of losing it forever. 

    The only question that remains then is how many items can the map support at once. And the answer I'm suspecting is that the map can hold however many items there are spawn points for and I suspect that there are quite a lot. I'll edit in a screenshot in a bit to show you why I think this. There could be a cut off point, but there's no evidence to suggest this yet.

    And after a day of zero spawns, I just got two more. Another Axe and a Can of Red Cow. Total simultaneous on  screen items is not forty (40).

    EDIT:

    Six Items

    This is probably my most item dense section of the map. But the part that I found interesting are the two items directly left of the scrolling arrows. At one click zoomed out, they're practically on top of each other. Other sections of my map have clusters of items very close to one another. My best guess is that there are many, many spawning points.

    Today I found 5 items. A lion plushie, a smoke grenade and 3 morphines. Oddly, the morphines were found all 3 in a row. My awareness is 3/10 plus the education bonus. Earlier this month I found a Cesium-137. All other items were lower value, some drugs and mostly useless weapons.

    Really? How active are you? I find it hard to believe because I'm finding something almost every day many times multiple items. I think Butters has been doing well with his finds as well. All I can say is make sure you're clicking City consistently and I go so far as to make I click links inside the city as well. Just in case. 

    Total simultaneous on screen items is now forty-three (43) fourty-four (44). New items are a Box of Sweet Hearts and a Gernade. I'm going to see if I can manage to screenshot together the entire city map at one click zoomed out so anybody who cares can see where some of these spawn points are. I'll try to do this around fifty items on screen. Should I blue box there are leave them as they appear... maybe draw a circle around them? 

    Total items found since RESPO launched is sixty-one sixty-two. 

    EDIT: The newly found item.

    I've had nothing for the best part of a week.

    Wasn't on much over the weekend but have been on quite a bit since.

    Tried searching zoomed in and searching with the screen highlighted. Was finding a couple of items a day to start with.

    Total simultaneous items on the city map is now forty-seven (47). New spawns are Morphine and more Ninja Stars.

    I just joined a 5* Fireworks Stand so as far as I know, my Awareness should be maxed out. 10/10 Awareness merits, 10% Education Bonus, Fireworks Stand passive bonus and unhealthy amounts of LSD.

    Once three or more items spawn, I'm going to sew together a full city map with all of my items displayed for everyone to see. I haven't decided whether or not to "blue box" the items yet. Once I finish the map, I'll probably start a new thread for it.
