If you’re looking to proceed in your simulation as a good person, you’ll want to keep your karma at 100 percent, meaning you’ll have the best luck in the game.

However, players looking to experiment with a wicked simulation will often find their karma level at zero percent, which is statistically bad and results in bad luck.
