What is RAP in Pet Simulator X?
March 11, 2023
RAP is an acronym for Recent Auction Price which is the average of the winning bids of a particular pet in Auctions. It was added to the game as part of the Comet Update on March 4, 2023, right after the Trading Update.
Currently, only Huge pets have RAP. Normal sized Exclusive pets are not able to be sold in Auctions, so they are unable to have a Recent Auction Price. Titanic pets are able to be sold in Auctions, however they are so rarely sold that the RAP was often in-accurate which led to the removal of RAP for Titanic pets in the St. Patrick's Update on March 11, 2023.
How to View a Pet's RAP?
You can view the RAP of any Huge pet by hovering your mouse over the icon of the pet. This can be done anywhere such as in your inventory, in someone's Trading Booth, in the Trade Screen, and on Auctions. At the bottom, Diamond colored text will show a range of what the RAP is for that pet.
Is RAP Accurate?
RAP can be a useful tool, and it can be fairly accurate for frequently auctioned pets such as the Huge Hell Rock. However, it is not usually accurate due to three main issues.
The first issue is that the RAP of a pet can easily be manipulated by anyone. Two friends can keep purchasing the same pet from each other for a very high amount of Gems in order to drive the RAP higher. They can also keep purchasing the same pet from each other for 1 Gem in order to drive the price down. Currently there is no way to detect if there was any manipulation, so you can easily get tricked into selling your pets at incorrect prices.
The second issue is that RAP only takes into account sales at Auctions, and does not include Trading Booth sales, and direct Player to Player trades. Pets sold at Auction are sold for much less than if they were sold at a Trading Booth. Auctions are only server-wide and not global, so the sale price is only what someone currently in the trading server is willing to pay.
The third issue is that rare pets do not sell very often at Auctions, so there is not enough data to assign them a RAP accurately. A perfect example of this is the Titanic Jolly Cat. It's RAP was only 500B, when it was constantly getting sold and traded for many trillions of Gems. This is because it is so rare that it rarely sold at Auctions, making the RAP inaccurate.
Using a values list such as PSX Database helps eliminate these risks.
