    Introduction

    Buy a building
    Click on the Cash Register icon at the bottom right of the screen to purchase buildings.

    Move a building
    You can tap and hold on a building already in your city. You can then drag the building to a new position and tap the green check mark when it's in a location that you're happy with. Once you're done moving buildings around, tap on the red X button in the Market tray to close it and exit Edit Mode.

    Store and retrieve a building
    Tap on the Market to enter Edit Mode. Tap the building you wish to store. If it can be stored, tap on the box icon that appears below the building. This moves it into your Storage. Some buildings, like factories, City Hall, highrises and businesses with active orders cannot be stored.

    To find a building in your Storage, tap the Market button and then locate the building in the Storage tab (the tab icon looks like an open box). You do not need to buy it again - just tap on the item to return it to your city.

    Note: A stored building does not contribute to the operation of your city. For example, a house that has been stored no longer provides population until it is returned to the board. Likewise a mastered business does not contribute mastery stars for revenue when stored. They count towards unlocking factories and new crafts.

    Sell a building
    If you would like to sell a building, tap and hold the building you wish to sell. If it is eligible to be sold, you will see a Sell button next to the item. Be careful before you decide to sell anything though; you may have to work hard to get it again, and some rewards you won't be able to earn a second time.

    Businesses

    Start a Business
    Each category of business can only be started using the respective permits. Start the business, make the required crafts in the factories and submit the orders. Each submitted order gives coins and a citizen will drop you tips and sometimes a random part. Submit 10 orders to master the shop and get random part(s) and another permit. Sometimes you may get a gem as part of the rewards.

    Continue to start new businesses and submit the orders to earn more coins, parts and mastery stars. You will need mastery stars in order to buy factories and unlock crafts. Your revenue from City Hall increases with each mastered shop placed in your city and highrises. Don't worry about running out of permits since you are given a new permit for every completion of existing shops. It's alright to master duplicate shops if there isn't any new shop for your current level.

    List of Businesses
    Dining businesses
    Shopping businesses
    Housing businesses
    Entertainment businesses
    Service businesses
    Technology businesses

    Submit an order
    1. Click on your business
    2. Click [Make] to craft the item
    3. Click [Collect] to collect the item
    4. Click [Fill Order] to submit the order

    Discard an order
    You can discard any business order that you are unable to fulfil. A new business order will appear in 30mins.
    1. Click on your business
    2. Click [New] to discard
    3. Click [Get New Order] to confirm
