The Ville Job Happiness, Coin and Time Efficiency Guide



The Ville Job Happiness, Coin and Time Efficiency Guide by Serendipity

Howdy Villeans!

I find jobs difficult to do because I only have so much time and happiness to spend. Moreover, I hate wasting my time and happiness when I am playing! This is why I am curious if anyone has done any analysis of the various jobs that the items around the Ville to determine how efficient each job is.

I haven’t gotten every job item yet but I have started my own little analysis comparing time, happiness cost, and coin payout from what I do have. Here is how I am calculating my Return of Investment (RoI): (Coin Payout – Time in Minutes) / Happiness Cost = RoI (Eg, 35c – 0m / 10h = 3.5) In this case, the higher the Return of Investment, the better that investment is!

I have ordered the jobs according to the way they appear in the game, but have bolded out the ones that are the best investment of your time and happiness. I am playing as an Artist, so there are no bonuses to my jobs.

Got anything to add? Post it and I’ll edit in your information into this post!
