Max style? Edit

My style level has been maxed out at 8 for a very long time. Is that the max? -User452 04:12, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

No, the maximum for respect is ∞ (infinity) which means there is no actual number to it, you just have unlimited respect. And the maximum style I think is 10, I'm not so sure though. Try some of the techniques to boost you style (to do it quickly, go to the Ultor Dome's Foreign Power and purchase the Superiore at the bottom of the list, and keep doing it. -Spedster777 17:29, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
I know maximum respect is infinite, I mean style level, go into your Crib customization screen (the one that lets you edit the bed and stripper poles) and you'll see a little number in the top right on the style meter. So you have 10? Good idea on buying cars a bunch of times, I didn't realise that would work. -User452 17:56, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Text from the in-game help menu + notes Edit

Style Points

The amount of Respect earned can be increased by raising your Style Rank.

All clothing, jewelry, tattoos, vehicle components, Cribs and Stores you own give you Style Points. Earn enough Style Points to increase your Style Rank.

Ok, so the Style Points and Style Rank are displayed when you're in a store, or in your Crib Customization menu.
Just by going through the game, I got up to Style Rank 8, probably because I always stole cars, and never bought the expensive cars, as Spedster777 said above, going to Foreign power and buying the cars will boost your Style Points bar by about half a bar each time, and will quickly increase your style Rank. (I say about half, but it probably varies by level Superiore is worth 6000, so the bar probably holds 10,000 at level 8, but it took 3 superiores to each level 10)
I just reached level 9, which says i get 45% more respect during activities. The relation between 9 and 45 tells me that you probably get an extra 5% for each level, but someone should check that. (Level 10 is 50% more respect, lowers levels need to be checked) -User452 18:15, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
And yes, confirmed, level 10 is the max. At level 10, the style points bar appears empty, and when you buy another car at level 10, you see the bar fully fill up, but nothing happens.
also, the statistic menu shows "Style Level (10)", and Style Rating, which is the combined Style Points earned (I bought another +6000 car, and the statistic when up by 6000 points.)
I've reloaded the game at level 8, and my Style Level is 16872, Style Rank 9 is reached at 25,000 or 26,000, Style Rank 10 is reached at 50,000. In other words, it only takes buying 9 Superiores from the start of the game ;) -User452 18:31, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
I've added all of this new info into the article, and researched the Style Rating at each Rank. I've put into the article that Rank 8 is reached at 15,000 points. I know for certain that it is NOT at 10,000 (from one file). and I know it is somewhere below 15,500 (my other file). 15,000 is the number that makes the most sense, but I could be wrong.
In my file where I have a Style Rating of 10004, I've spend $52,700 on cribs and $62,000 in stores. If you always get 10% of the cost as Style Points, I should have 11,470, not 10,004. So I've somehow spent ~$1400 on cribs and items that wasn't counted as Style Points. Oh, of course! it must be rounded down at the time of purchase. so when you buy a $39 item, you get 3 style points, which over 200 items could easily accumulate to $1400
-User452 19:37, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
Nope. experimentation has show me that Style Points are rounded up, not down. So I should have more Style Points than the amount of money I've spent on customization. Something isn't adding up, but I'm not sure what it is. Something counted in the statistics for "cash spent on crib upgrades" and "cash spent on customization items" isn't counted as style points. Food Items do not count towards those totals, and it can't be the cost of Cribs, because the number would be way too high.
It doesn't really matter what it is, but if anyone ever works out what it is, please add it to the article! -User452 20:05, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
I've found one problem, cars purchased and car modifications are not counted in "cash spent on customization items" clothes are. There is no "total money spent on cars" statistic, so the total is way off anyway, so I'm not going to spend any more time on this. -User452 20:15, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
