Can't get happiness higher than 99%.

★★★ Newbie
Please help! All of my buildings/people are green. Everyone has all the necessities. Yet my city won't go up last 99%. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

My population stays around 98% to 99% as well, I think it might have to do with some buildings not being close enough to parks. I can't say for sure though.

I checked all of that. All buildings are covered by parks, transportation, education, etc. I can't figure it out.

Are any of them near pollution zones?

Well there's definitely an outlier somewhere, see if you can find one building that's somehow different than the others. If all of your buildings have access to parks, check to see if there are any roads that are yellow or red, that might have an effect (red definitely does, I'm not sure about yellow).

 

I can't see your city, so unfortunately that's all I can suggest.

I've had my city at 100%, but since the update it's been sitting at 99%. I don't really know why I dropped 1%, or why I can't seem to get it back up to 100%, and  honestly I am not obsessing about it. Whether your happiness is at 99% or 100%, you stay in the 20% tax bracket. So don't freak out about 1%.

the game gives you more pop up rewards like dozer parts and storage parts when your happiness is at !00%.  I've noticed.  Everyday I have a road that needs upgrading so I can never stay at 100% more than 24 hours.   Sometimes a building will look like it's covered by a park but it's really not, so add more parks or move some buildings around....that was my issue

Check your parks...its always that one that slips through the cracks that lowers that point.

The only pop boost that is needed for 100% is parks, but you need 100% coverage.
Also any pollution items will give negative, also storage even though it does not pollute it will cause negative happiness.
Also make sure you don't have more than one building that is a completely new build as having too many will affect happiness.
Also check total qty of building and then check in achievements on park coverage to make sure they are the same.
99% of the time will be a missing park.
