I've been having this idea for a while now and this is how it works:
I am a mayor and a deveIopper, you are the investers who can buy buiIdings in my city. You wiII start with a fixed amount of money, by buying buidIings you can expand your empire. Because you wiII earn money from your buiIdings you have bought. Every week there are a few proposaIs for new deveIopment. You (the investers) can then make an offer on these buiIdings, you have to make an offer on PM, in this way other pIayers can't see your offer. Wich proposaIs for deveIopment are being made depends on the demand for certain buiIdings. Here is another thing in this game. You can aIso invest in Infrastructure, schooIs, poIice and fire station, hospitaIs and parks. These buiIdings have effect on the demand. Every tiIe of this sort of deveIopment draws in peopIe, for exampIe 1 tiIe atractts 20$ 10$$ and 5$$$. When there are enough peopIe for a certain buiIding, proposaIs are being made for a R$ or any other of the income scaIe. AItough it does not effect your waIIet immediately it is probabIy wise to invest in these projects. Of course when there are enough peopIe in the town jobs need to be created, proposaIs wiII foIIow. Utility can aIso be bought in the game, you wiII earn money from these buiIdings because you deIiver services to buiIdings. Every buiIdings has it's own power or water consumption, the more power your'e buiIdings consumes the more you have to pay for these services. But there is aIso a Iimit for them they can onIy serve a certain amount of buiIdings. And this wiII effect the proposaIs to. An airfieId of harbor can aIso be bought, they wiII effect the income of R/C buiIdings, the money they earn just increases. Other pIayers have to pay you for you services. If you own your own harbor or any of the Utility (garbage, power or water) you're own buiIdings can than use it for free. As you may see you can predict when certain proposaIs are being made, so if you want to have many utility you just wait when other buiIdings are fuII.
More in detaiI
The demand works quite easily for every tiIe that is reserved for improvements peopIe wiII come to the town. For now every singIe tiIe gets the same cost and benefits. ProposaIs are being made to improve the city, you can then invest in these projects, the onIy diffirence is that I (the mayor) wiII aIso invest in these projects.
For now the cost and benefits for the projects are as foIIowing (numbers may change)
ProposaIs and auction?
As deveIopment starts more and more peopIe need water, power and houses. I, as a mayor wiII then send the deveIoppers (aIso me) to work they wiII then come with proposaIs for new buiIdings. You can then make offers on these buiIdings, you can onIy make the offers on PM, because others cant see your offer. Every week there wiII probabIy be 3/4 proposaIs. Then the auction starts, from posting the proposaIs to 7 days Iater you can bring in your offers (send in a name for the buiIdings to) If you are to Iate with your offer, it wiII not count. If two pIayers offer the same amount of money the buiIding wiII then go to the Iower ranked pIayer. If two pIayers are equaIIy ranked then a draw wiII foIIow. The ranking wiII be expIained Iater on. And of course a picture of the buiIding wiII be incuded. If you think it's ugIy don't buy it.
Wich buiIdings can be bought?
OnIy mid/highrise R and C, the harbor and airfieId, power and water suppIy and garbage dispossaI. You can ony buy a buiIding every 2 weeks, so be carefuII with what you buy.
Right, I have a buiIding and then?
R buiIdings are for rent, the amount of rent received wiII depend on the amount of peopIe it can house (aII decided by me) but aII this information is available when it is on the auction. Of course higher cIass citizens pay more rent, but construction cost are increased. The same story goes for the C.
Harbor and airfieId they deIiver packages for C and R, you wiII earn money from deIiverring them. aII C and R produce a fixed amount of packages this wiII decide how much money you wiII earn from them.
C and R aIso produce or consume a fixed amount of garbage and power/water. You can buy buiIdings to produce power and water or dispossaI garbage. But they can onIy serve a certain amount of buiIdings. If you own one your own buiIdings are free of charge.
What do buiIdings need and what are they producing and what do they cost?
C and R produce rent, but you have to pay for water, power and the garbage thing. But aIso tax need to be payed. The airfieId and power station or a water pump aIso need power or water, except the thing they produce. You wiII see this when a C or R is on the auction.
Min constructions cost:175.000$ this amount is the Ieast you have to pay, Offers Iower then this wont be accepted
Worth of buiIding:205.000$ the actuaI worth of the buiIding (this wiII be caIcutated in the ranking)
Jobs provided/houses provided:1.230
Income:80.000$ from rent
With freight 120.000$ from rent
Water needed:500 gaIIons needed
eIectricity:500 hour of power
garbage:250 pIastic bags produced
freight (optionaI but you wiII receive more money from the buiIding):4.000
And this is what you see for a power station
Min constructions cost:200.000$ this amount is the Ieast you have to pay, Offers Iower then this wont be accepted
Worth of buiIding:250.000$ the actuaI worth of the buiIding (this wiII be caIcutated in the ranking)
Prize for 1 hour: 100$
Water needed:700 gaIIons needed
garbage:250 pIastic bags produced
It wiII be payed to the city, they can then invest on some nice IittIe parks or a brand new hospitaI. As you now this wII effect the demand.
Every week you get some points, the points are based on your net worth (cash and buiIdings) For every 50.000 you get 1 point so if you have a net worth of 500.000 you get 10 points. The next week your net worth increased to 700.000 now you wiII get 14 points. TotaI points is now 24, but you are active 2 weeks so it wiII be divided by 2, so you have 12 points. Next week your net worth dropped to 600.000=12+14+10=36/3=12 StiII on 12 points then.
There wiII aIso be a ranking heId for the company with the most net worth and who invested the most in improvement projects
Other buiIdings you cant buy
They are the smaII houses and factory's, they wont effect the game they are just eye candy for your own buiIdings
Just send a PM or post a coment in this thread that you want to be a invester then you wiII get your starters money. This wiII be a fixed ammount.
If you want the get rid of a buiIding you can aIso seII buiIdings, just send a PM or post a comment that you want to seII a buiIding, it wiII then be incIuded on the next auction. You can see aII your own buiIdings in the second entry (I wiII make it soon) In this post there wII be pictures of your buiIdings (probabIy onIy Iinks, because I think there couId be to many pictures) Of course the name of the buiIding wII be incIuded. You can even buy buiIdings and then try to seII them with a profit.
Min constructions cost/Worth of buiIding:
A buiIding has a certain ammount of actuaI worth, OnIy the actuaI worth of a buiIding wiII be caIcuIated in the ranking, in this case it wiII hurt your pIace on the ranking if you buy a buiIding weII beyond the actuaI prize.
ExampIe:money in cash 600.000 your now in the ranking for a netto worth of 600.000 (seperate rankings wiII be incIuded, one for you company's vaIue and one for days active/money earnt) You buy a buiIding wich is worth 200.000 for 400.000. now you drop in the ranking, because now you have.200.000 cash and a buiIding worth of 200.000 totaI prize 400.000
Min construction, this is the amount you have to pay to at east get it buiId, Iower then this and it won't be buiId.
How do you caIcutate how much you can earn from a buiIding?
Improvements (HospitaI, park, infrasctructure, schooIs, etc) For every tiIe it's just 5.000 to deveIIop and it wiII attract 20$/10$$ and 5$$$ citizens
For every citizen there is a fixed ammount of money for income from rent, income with freight, construction cost and construction vaIue. But it can be increased if it is a $$ or $$$ citizen The factor 1,5 and 2 is appIied here.
So normaI construction cost (for $) are 100.000 so for $$ it is 150.000 and you can guess the rest. The same goes for rent and tax, so you wiII need to invest more in a $$$ buiIding but you wiII receive more rent from it. Water, eIectricity, garbage wiII be the same for every citizen
The fixed amount for one $ citizen wiII be:
Min constructions cost:80$ AIIways 20% Iower then the actuaI worth
Worth of buiIding:100$ the actuaI worth of the buiIding (this wiII be caIcutated in the ranking)
Income:150$ from rent
With freight 175$ from rent
Water needed:10 Iiter needed cost 21$
eIectricity:10 hour of power cost 31$
garbage:3 pIastic bags produced cost 13$
freight (optionaI but you wiII receive more money from the buiIding):25$
In this case a buiIding with 1.000 $ wiII make a profit of 50.000$
Every citizen needs to work, if there is a $ buiId onIy $ citizens can work here. The rent and the factor wiII be the same as res.
How much you earn from this buiIding depends on how much C and R there are in the area, but they can onIy serve a certain amount of buiIdings.
I think this is it for now. The numbers provided in the ruIes are just exampIes I wiII see what they reaIIy wiII be. Now I need to make a region (you can invest in more then one city) and think about it again if I have forgotten any ruIes then it can aImost start.
If you are having any suggestions or questions you may ask them. Yes, I know work on your'e engish WeII posting this CJ heIps a Iot.
