Know About Game Resources and Elements
You have to manage your city & businesses and for this, the elements and resources you need are given as under:
Money is required to purchase buildings, city decorations, services and expansions. You can earn money or coins by selling goods in the supermarket or when doing certain tasks within your city or by helping neighbors.
A special type of element to buy special items within the shop. If you would like to construct buildings that are still locked, you can purchase them ahead of time with City Credits. You will get additional credits when you level up.
Look at the blue bar on top which shows the number of citizens you have in your city. This can be increased by constructing residential buildings. Adding new production buildings in upper levels will require you to increase your population.
How to increase Happiness Points
Happiness points indicate the happiness level of your city. It can be enhanced by adding entertainment facilities. Adding more of these buildings will also increase the maximum level of your population.
The city needs to be environmental friendly and ecology points serve as a guide how well you are doing. You can add more points by purchasing trees. To add more industrial buildings in higher levels, there is a required number of ecology points before you can purchase these factories.
Need of Electricity
All your buildings need electricity for it to run. To increase the available electricity points, you can purchase power stations.
How to Manage your Garage
For shifting/moving your raw materials and manufactured products, you need to have the right vehicles. Your garage is your headquarters and where your trucks are parked. Without these vehicles, you can’t produce any goods from your factories nor can you sell them.
You start off with one truck which you can use to transport fruits, vegetables and groceries. Depending on the number of industrial buildings you’ve constructed, you might need more than one as you increase your level to do the tasks faster.
The purpose of milk tanker is to transport dairy products like milk. The trash tanker will pick up trash and send it to the trash recycling center. The timber tanker will move wood and the gasoline tanker will transport oil products.
All vehicles would not be available for purchase and will be unlocked when you reach the upgraded level of that building. You can upgrade your garage any time as long as you have the coins to purchase it.
Produce Goods from Industrial Facilities
For production of products, you will require a farm or a ranch. The produce it provides will be used as raw ingredients for finished goods. By clicking on the building, the options will appear. To start a contract, choose the middle button and this will let you choose the available products to produce.
Looking at the image above, the cost of producing meat will be 50 coins but once you sell it at the supermarket, you’ll earn 140 coins profiting 90 more coins. It will take 10 minutes to produce and you’ll earn 6 experience points.
Important Note : Some products might have been unlocked but if you don’t have the right vehicle to transport it, then you can’t produce it. As an example, if milk has been unlocked from the ranch because you’ve reached the upgraded level but don’t have a milk tanker, you can’t produce it.
For factories that produce goods requiring more ingredients, it is nice that you wait to complete them to earn more profit from the finished product. Looking at the example below, having 1 flour and 1 milk will allow you to produce dough.
Cost is at 200 coins but your profit skyrockets to 1,160 coins by selling it at a 1,360 price. So the tip here is to produce more complexed products for more profit.
Sale at the Supermarket
For earning coins and further expand your businesses and city, sell your produce and finished goods at the supermarket. You can opt to sell products in its original state or you can wait and store them until they can be produced for high selling products.
In case looking at the list of goods available for sale, mouse over each item and check whether it can be an ingredient to be produced in a plant. For example, sugar can be used at the dairy factory or the confectionary plant. In case these buildings are available, then do not sell it and use it as an ingredient instead. At earlier levels, you can sell them immediately to earn money since the factories haven’t been built yet.
City Management through Public Service
Running a city means providing your citizen’s needs. Three methods are there for managing your city and this is by giving medical assistance, put out fires and picking up trash from establishments and homes.
It will be noticed by you during gameplay, there will be image icons that will appear above them indicating what help your citizens need. A burning tree or building will show a fire extinguisher icon and you’ll see flames. Trash collection will have a trash bin icon and if a home needs medical help, you will see a cross icon on top.
If you click on the affected building, it will send a helicopter to provide assistance. You will receive 30 coins and 1 experience point.
Cleanliness and Repair at Neighbor’s Buildings
You may help a neighbor’s city by helping them clean their establishments and provide repair services.
You only require to scroll through their city and look for the tool and broom icons. Clicking on them will reward you 30 coins and 1 experience point per building. The number of times you can help a neighbor isn’t fixed. This means that a bigger city can let you earn more rewards, even more than the usual 5 times you see in other games. To get more chances of helping a neighbor (more buildings that may need assistance), it’s better to invite friends who are in higher levels or have bigger cities. Sometimes going back after a few minutes to the same neighbor will indicate other buildings that may need help. This is random though at this point.
