How To Add Friends

So now that you’ve created your city, invite your friends to check out your creation! Here is our SimCity BuildIt How To Add Friends Guide. There are currently 3 ways to connect with friends.

fbFacebook (iOS and Android)

Allows you to save your progress for use on multiple devices (can be used cross platform).

 

  1. Download and sign into Facebook (iOS | Android)
  2. Open up SimCity BuildIt and tap on settings icon (Wrench and screwdriver icon)
  3. Tap on the Connect to Facebook button

That’s it! Definitely the easiest method I’ve used (I created a fake Facebook to use for this purpose).

Check out our SCBuildIt.com Facebook and add other mayors from there!

Don’t Have An iOS device.. if someone could list the steps required in the comments it would be extremely beneficial!

    1. Open up Google+
    2. Add your friends emails (if they aren’t friends already) and send them requests
    3. Add these friends to your ‘Circles’
      • I created a special circle called SimCity for all my SCBuildIt neighbors
      • These friends will appear in your game as neighbors
  4. Open up SimCity BuildIt and tap on settings icon (Wrench and screwdriver icon)
  5. Tap on Connect Google Play
  6. Click Sign In

If you have issues (once successfully connected to Google Play):

  1. Open up SimCity BuildIt and tap on settings icon -> Then tap Google Play (this brings you to the achievements page)
  2. Tap on the 3 dot icon on the top right -> Settings -> Sharing Settings
  3. Tap on ‘This App Can See These People’
    • Choose which circles you want to share activity with (I used my SimCity Circle from above)
  4. Disconnect and Reconnect (Usually solves any problems)
