Specialization problems.

I have a city that I'm trying to use to generate tonnes of cash.  So I am running a smelter, processor plants and tv factories.  However, my processor plants and tv factories run fine for a short while at 9600 procs/tvs a day but then something goes wrong and the factory production cuts in half and wont recover, I can see no reason why.  There are no problem signs for the factories!


Any advice?

Do you have a University connected to the factories? The workers need to be technically educated, the higher the education rate the more efficient the factories are.

Also check all the factories have sufficient raw materials. Importing may work out more efficient than smelting.

You may actually find it cheaper to import the alloy and use the space used by the smelter for another electronics factory.

  • Yeah, I have a community uni as I have no space for the main one!  But they do run to notch for a while then slow off.  I'll do som maths on the smelting.  I'm digging the ore out which I think it saving me some cash, I'm only importing coal to run the whole network...

    Id love the economics side of SimCity to play a larger role, let me see EXACTLY what im spending. I know you can work it out but I just want to see more charts n graphs, after all, EA do push the whole "global market" thing... why not back it up with some substance.
