    Getting Started

    Managing your City requires that you carefully balance the production of your goods and products. If you're having problems, this section should help! There are several important aspects to remember: Building, Manufacturing, Collecting, and Upgrading.

    Building
    A city needs to grow, and the best way to help yours grow is to construct new buildings. All sorts of houses, businesses, and civic buildings are available in the Marketplace, ready to be added to your city.

    Most buildings can be purchased with coins, but you'll need Business Permits to build new businesses. Business Permits can be earned by mastering existing businesses and on some City Hall upgrades.

    Manufacturing
    Order Goods from your Train Depot by tapping on it and dragging the package size of Goods that you want into an available slot. Once the unloading timer finishes, the Goods will be delivered to the loading docks in your Train Depot. Tap on the deliveries to move them to your warehouse, where they can be used to directly fill some orders from businesses.

    Most orders from businesses require an assortment of Products. These can be made in your factories, using a combination of Goods and other Products. You can tap on the 'Make' button in an order to go to the factory where it's made and see what you need to make it.
    Products you can make are grouped into one of six industries: Dining, Shopping, Housing, Entertainment, Services, and Technology. Your city will eventually have factories for each industry where you can make a variety of fun items for your city's businesses!

    Collecting
    Collect all sorts of items from around your city to help it grow. Your Train Depot receives shipments of Goods, and your factories make all sorts of neat Products to help you fill orders from businesses. You can collect these items simply by tapping on them on the board.

    You also have a chance to collect special items from your city's citizens, by tapping on them to chat as they walk around your city. Some of these special items are used to expand your city's warehouse, allowing you to store more items. Others are used to unlock new land expansions, so you can keep making your city larger. You can also collect items that allow you to unlock new slots in high-rises, where you can move mastered businesses and houses to free up more space in your city.
    As your city expands, you also collect coins from your City Hall. The more 5-star businesses your city has, the more coins you can collect each day!

    Upgrading
    Add more houses and civic buildings to increase your city's Population. Add more businesses and help them become 5-Star establishments to increase your Mastery Star total. Once you have enough Population and Mastery Stars, you can upgrade your City Hall and unlock all sorts of great, new buildings to add to your city! Goals can involve collecting ingredients, cooking, learning recipes, and buying items in the Market.

    Design and expand your city

    Expand your city by tapping on the signs in areas adjacent to your existing city. Expanding costs Coins and Parts. You can get Parts by tapping on citizens.

    Moving buildings and roads
    Move your building by pressing down on it until it gets into Edit mode. You can add or remove roads by clicking on the [Cash Register] icon and select the [Road] icon to go into Edit mode as shown below. You can add roads to the empty squares shown in green or you can click to remove any existing roads. The brown squares are occupied by buildings and you can't change them to road. Store the buildings first before you change them.


    Design your city
    Design your city layout to fully utilise the limited land. Here are some points to note when planning your layout.

    • Expand towards the Points of Interest to increase your population
    • City Hall and factories don't need road access
    • Place as many businesses as you can in your city to increase the revenue you can collect from City Hall every 30 mins
    • Use residential and commercial highrises to maximise your land. Note that highrises cannot be stored even when they're empty.
    • Store the bigger size businesses (1x2) into your commercial highrises to allow more space for the smaller businesses (1x1)
    • Land is scarce and highrises cannot be stored, take note of the population per square to utilise your city land efficiently. Population per square - house (4), fully upgraded small residential highrises (8), fully upgraded large residential highrises (10), civic buildings (minimum 6), landmarks (minimum 15).

    Tips:
    1. Place your factories clustered in an area of your city without road access to save space. Make space for 20 factories.
    2. Place your factories in a row in the order they appear when you click on the ">" button to reduce your screen jumping to different parts of your city.
    3. See community cities in Post Pictures of your Dream City! for inspiration and design your own.


    What to do when I run out of land?
    Here are some suggestions.
    • redesign your city with a more efficient layout and try to make more space, if possible
    • create bigger clusters of buildings
    • reduce excess roads where possible - buildings need not be totally surrounded by roads at all sides; they only need to have road access on 1 square.
    • store some houses and civic buildings on land and replace them with landmarks as landmarks give the highest population per square
    • put the businesses on land into highrises
    • keep submitting business orders to get parts to fully upgrade all highrises
    • keep submitting business orders to get parts to further upgrade your inventory
    • keep submitting business orders to get mastery stars to unlock all factories and crafts

      Plan for future when we get more land expansions
    • keep submitting business orders to stock up expansion parts so that you can expand immediately
    • keep submitting business orders to earn more mastery stars so that you can level up faster
    • keep submitting Boardwalk orders to accumulate more tickets for future purchases

    City Hall

    The level of your City Hall is your game level. Collect revenue from your City Hall every 30 mins to get more coins. Place more businesses in your city to increase your revenue. You can earn more mastery stars by submitting orders and mastering businesses. Increase your population by expanding to Points of Interest and Locations, buying houses, civic buildings and landmarks. The City Hall changes its appearance at Level 25.



    Note:
    1. The City Hall doesn't need road access.
    2. We get revenue from all businesses placed on land and highrises. The only ones that aren't counted for revenue are those in storages. However the mastery stars from those businesses in storage count for unlocking new factories and crafts.

    Special thanks to qprpaul for being so helpful in providing this upgrade information.

    Citizens

    Citizens appear randomly walking in your city. Tap on them when they appear to collect coins and sometimes a random part.

    When do they appear?
    • A citizen appears after you have submitted your business order to drop you coins and sometimes a random part
    • A citizen appears after you have mastered your business to drop you coins and random part(s)
    • Several citizens appear after you have sent your ship off for your Boardwalk orders. They drop you coins and sometimes a random part.
    • A citizen appears after your new building has finished construction. You will see several of them for bigger buildings.
