robbed houses earning money

last night i took daniel steven smith's money. the house is such that it is a one-time rob-job. this morning he appears to have $3700, but the house is still in an state where it would not pass the self-test.

a buggy bug has lurked in somewhere? shane randal flores also appears to be affected.

Re: robbed houses earning money

I can't remember the exact mechanics to it, but doesn't it have to be robbed two times in a row to stop earning money or something?

Re: robbed houses earning money

oh really, that seems like a strange policy when houses are very easy to make one-time robbable! solves the mystery if that is the case.

Re: robbed houses earning money

Actually, I think I might be thinking of houses being delisted.

I'm Daniel though and I do seem to be earning money even after being robbed.

Re: robbed houses earning money

Yes, you still earn after being robbed.

This is to keep your house in circulation as long as it is still potentially interesting to a robber.  A house that is one-time robbable is certainly still potentially interesting.  So, money builds up there.

The goal is to automatically remove houses that are not interesting in any way (houses with a clear-cut path to the vault that everyone can use, etc.)

One thought:  maybe you should only earn vault money if there is vault money in there.  So, a house would still earn money after being robbed, but only in the form of wife-salary if the wife is still living. 

But that would take wifeless one-time-robbable houses out of circulation immediately, which wouldn't be good.
