    Dougaroo once posted in a reply that we should not let the buildings mature for more than three days (72 hours) before collecting the coins.

    I see. Then I have seen what my city is capable of producing and it is not enough. Therefore, I must continue to add Willies. I'd have thought 15-16 would be enough to sustain gameplay, but apparently not. Getting 60 passes and 60 gems after waiting three days is way short of anything resembling steady-state gameplay. Lots o' downtime. Lots of waiting on the next treasure box and hoping it gives up something worth the wait.

    That's ok. It is what it is.

    ELA, with regard to "My City" we need to separate these different things, passes and gems come from treasure boxes and sometimes from the little prize boxes (although in very small quantities). Passes and gems play no role in the city maturation process. They come from the treasure boxes which open on their own schedule.

    Charms (My City charms) come, mostly, from the little prize boxes and sometimes from treasure boxes. Here, allowing the city to mature will most likely produce more little prize boxes therefore more charms.

    It is coins from buildings which raised the question of city maturation. The idea being that the buildings will continue adding coins (and prize boxes?) through the maturation. Passes and gems are not a part of all that.

    Willies are absolutely the way to go, you'll want to get a lot more of them. They will make your city income increase quite a bit, and they will provide some passes/gems, but the biggest benefit is what they do to treasure boxes. Once you get 2-300 Willies you will get thousands of passes/gems in the treasure boxes. It might sound like a huge hill to climb but it's a snowball effect, the more Willies the more gems which you can trade for more Willies.

    Edit: ^^ what he said

    Now a thing about the maturation process. I think it has no value at all and I understood Dougaroo's caution about a three day limit to mean we would gain no additional coins beyond three days. Or even, perhaps, lose accumulated coins once past the three day limit. I wouldn't want either of those things to happen.

    I do understand that buildings mature and deliver coins and prizes on a schedule but when exactly we tap into that schedule likely has no bearing at all on the total received over three days. I suspect that all those multiple collection points produce the same amount of coins as a three day wait so, I don't wait.

    Also, I wouldn't want to be even one hour late past the three day limit and suffer those consequences.

    Completely agree with Tickle. All of us who have reached milestone 70 have several hundred Willies, I have ~350. Save gems, buy Willy buildings, watch the snowball effect take hold and see the milestones fall.

    K9, I've collected some data on city income that suggests passes and gems coming from building prizes were more likely to appear the longer you wait. My sample is small though, so I accept what you say about it. And yes I've seen the effect my buildings have on the quality of drops from the treasure boxes. Astounding at times.

    Tickle, yes, I'm adding Willies as fast as I can, which does not seem very fast at all.

    Thanks guys for the answers. Your insights are greatly appreciated.

    K9, I had to read that last part again -- multiple collection points produce the same amount -- because I failed to consider that. The notion of what I thought was happening is just wrong. Nothing to it. Simple. No Easter eggs. No tricks or magic. No subtlety at all. Just grind out the Willys and let it happen. Sorry for being so dense.

    Again, thanks. I'll not bother anyone about this again. Well, until I hit MS 70, then I'll ask "What now?"
