Yea the rates for those shopping for game points haven't been good for a while. I like Pete try to always stay under 10 but I haven't seen anything that good recently and my offers in that range haven't gotten any nibbles. I finally had to break down and do a 15 as my custom barns were about to expire. We need some big stewardbred auctions STAT so those of us that exclusively use the exchange for game points can refill our coffers.

Twas a real bummer when I finally got to the point in the game I could start buying GP with S$ instead of RL$...and then the exchange rates promptly went all wonky when GP Auctions were introduced 💔

Well markets fluctuate, as someone who spends real $ on the game I wouldn’t take less than 14:1...so it goes in cycles

I’ve never seen it below 10. Maybe that’s because the reverse is usually available for 10-10.5, so it ever falls below 10 you could turn a quick simbux profit back on the other side of the exchange. I doubt any offers less than 10 would be up for more than a few seconds. And it would be crazy to list GPS for less than 10 when you could just spend your gps and get a better deal by just buying the simbux for the many 10 or even up to 11 offers usually there.

I have done big deals buying GP for Simbucks, multimillion dollar deals if the price has been right. That being said, if I can't get in at a 12.5-14 range, then I don't buy any.

And I'm not just saying the exchanges is dead because there are no offers of 10 or lower, I admittedly usually get my game points by putting out offers rather than taking up the existing ones, and currently my offers in the 10 range are getting no where which isn't surprising given that there is a boat load of them up there. By comparison there were a bunch of stewardbred auctions right on top of one another at the beginning of Year 56 and my offers were getting swept up almost instantaneously. I kept offering $500,000 in sim cash and asking for more and more game points in return and got people to take me up on it all the way up to a 6.25 rate (80,000 game points for the $500,000). That is not happening right now.

As others have said it's all supply and demand. Cash stewardbred auctions are the time where there is the greatest demand on sim cash.

Yours is the reverse of Pete's ratio though. Pete is listing the ones where people are offering GPs, and the sim bux they are asking for. I have NEVER seen those go below about 14. In your case, offering up the sim cash, then I would say a fair or typical deal for buyers (that is, those spending GPs to buy sim cash), is in the 10-11 range, but you are right, during stew sales, people will take up much lower rates - great for those like yourself with simcash to sell. Right now though it is quiet - no stew sales to drive demand for simbux, and not close enough to last minute retiring/breeding for a high demand for GPs.

Things have been really slow on the Game Point front lately, because we had those two mini GP 1/2 day and a real one bam bam bam, and so everyone has game points and nothing to spend it on.

Luckily we do have some cool new features that are close, but that would require me to be a functioning human for more than a few minutes in a row to get them online!
