The Object of the 'simulation' is to build a city
This is just a random collection of hints! R = residential zones I = industrial zones C = commercial zones Gameplay: ========= == PalmOS: * Use the hardware keys to scroll the field (IE. up/down, address book and todo) * Tapping on the speed indicator will pause the game, tapping again will set the speed to "medium" * Tapping on the build icon will toggle bulldozer * Tapping on the map will jump to that position * Tapping on the "calculator" button will bring up a quick list * The home/launch button will bring you back to the game from map/budget * The "F/P/M" in the build list are the defence units: Fire fighters, police and military == GTK+ (Linux): * Use the left mouse button to build with * Use the right mouse button for a quick bulldozer City development: ================= * R will VERY rarely settle next to I * I/C zones only grows if there are enough R (workers) * C will only grow if there are enough I (to produce goods) * There must be at most 3 squares to the nearest road for a zone * The population is calculated from the total R - I/C doesn't count * The water pump must be placed next to the river in the game to work * Just about everything needs electricity... including water pumps Disasters: ========== * Watch out for the monster and the dragon - they are NOT nice to you ;) * The fire spreads quickly. Hint: it cannot spread across clear land, so use that bulldozer :) * Even if you pause the game duing a disaster, it will still spread. * To stop the fire, place a fire fighter or a military unit next to it. The police can also stop the fire, but only if they have two units next to it. * The monsters can be killed by 2 military units (place them next to it), or 4 fire fighters. * The number of defence units depend on the number of fire stations, police stations and military bases you have. If you've no bases then you can't have units Misc: ===== * When you've changed something on the budget page, you need to reload it to see the changes (will auto-refresh in later versions) * In some versions there's a 'Test' menuoption under the 'File' menu - this is for testing and debugging. It should not be used.
