Q: What is the best city layout (or some form of this question)

A: Simply put, it depends on how you describe best. As I see it, there are three paths you can take in city layouts.

  • Option A: Small, specialized city that focuses on population and taxes
    • Maximum density and the most efficient placement of services and boosts is key.
    • Take a look at /u/kidha’s post here for his thoughts on reaching 500k.
  • Option B: Sprawling, large city with alot of residential plots.
    • You go crazy plopping residential areas and amass a large city by buying city lots.
  • Option C: A bit of both
    • Try and shoot for a health balance of both. but all in all your city layout will depend on numerous factors. Please read up on the city layout section here.

Q: What are the most efficient services (fire, police, and health)?

A: From what I’ve gathered, use the max fire station and max hospital, but use the mid tier police station.

Q: How to add friends?

A: Sadly there is no way to add an email address or username. You must sign up for the following services (device dependant).

  • Facebook – anyone playing the game that is friends with you (and your account is connected) will automatically show up on your social list.
  • B: Gamecentre – An iOS only option, people added to your gamecentre friends list should show up as friends.
  • C: Google Play – An Android only option, People in your circles (Providing you’re also in theirs) should show up as friends, but be patient, we’ve had mixed results with this one.

    Is there a way to replace the city attached to the Facebook account?
    I can’t connect to Facebook because there is a very old less advanced city of mine.

      Demolish the buildings and/or roads that you built over them. In a short time they will reappear in the same way that trees appear when you clear a land area
