My newest Facebook game addiction, Social City

Hahaha.. so whats new… Lets play Social City!

Screenshot of my budding little men city!

Like the cute graphics, but I think it does take alot of memory to run okay..

Here is abit about this game. You need to have a balance of residential properties to produce workers, industrial to produce goods and businesses to keep the little people happy. 

When you start this game, you will be given 3 houses that will produce 10 people every 8 minutes, and 2 factories. The starting tutorial will guide you thru the beginning, but your progress in the game will need some creativity from you. More creativity and effort, faster progress. Less creativity or effort, slow growth.

Whos ready to work?

Lets start with the little people. You should have a good production of them to grow your city population rapidly and will need to keep them happy with toys or recreational places to go to.

When the residentials produces new supply of little people, a yellow sign will appear on the housing. Click on it to add them to your city. 

Just added 25 to my city and gained 2XP. Yippee!

The game is designed so that you will go back regularly to “harvest” your population right.. surely you have already figure that one out. Optimum growth can be achieved if you harvest your crop as soon as they are ready. For the people production, they do not “spoil” or go away when you are not able to attend to them, but your city will not grow either.

I am at level 6! Muaahaahaahaa!

As the mayor of a growing city, you will be getting gifts when your population hits certain milestones that are set by the game developers. And the XP that you get for each harvesting click will go towards the point system to get to the next level. Each higher level will release a residential, building, factory or recreational facility.

Building tab, selecting a residential property

Heres a tip, real estate is PRECIOUS. You need friends to be your neighbours for growing your city space, otherwise it will cost “city dollars” that are hard to earn unless you pay for it with real dollars.. 🙂     Anyway, you want to have a mix of residential property types. The basic cottage is the quickest way to grow your city, if you are going to harvest them every 8m… but I believe you will sleep at some point in time, so have a few nice hotel producing 60 in 60m and some log cabins (prefered over log huts) producing 125 in 6hrs.

Choose the highest happy face value that you can afford

And to keep them little people happy, build some recreational facilities. Choose the best that you can afford! Cheap hangout places take up PRECIOUS real estate.

Oh yes, the recreational facilities will have to be cleaned sometimes. When the cleaning sign appears above the facility, it will not produce the “happy face value”, and you may have an unhappy population. … ie CLEAN THE FACILITIES!! like maintaining the LOOs.

Have to stop here. In my next update, I will give tips on factories. Stay tuned!
