Basic Sim City Social Currencies
There are three main currencies and points in Sim City Social: These three currencies are Sim City Simoleons, Diamonds, and Fame. Simoleons can be earned from collecting from businesses. Sim City diamonds have to be purchased with real world cash. And lastly the Sim City Fame is the social currency which you can earn from doing social actions in your Sim City friend’s Cities.
In addition to the basic currencies, you also have a material amount which can be produced from Sim City factories. You can also convert materials directly into Simoleons and vice versa.
Sim City Social Bonus Collection
You can receive two different types of daily login bonuses in Sim City Social. The first one is the pure and simple log in bonus, the second are the friend visitation bonuses that you receive when you visit friend’s Cities.
Sim City Item Placements
There are items that can be placed next to each other for you to level up your houses and receive additional bonuses and boosts. Below is a quick partial list to show some Sim City examples on how they work. We are working on a more completed guide to list the different boost combinations that you can have.
You can place items, move them around with the moving tool, and remove them using the bulldozer option. Be careful when you bulldoze Sim City Social buildings because you will not be able to get them back unless you rebuild them.
In Sim City Social, some land areas are better than the others and provide collection boosts to all sorts of buildings. For example, the Sim City Waterfront area will help houses level, businesses with higher payout, and factories with additional material production.
You can build sim City Social decorations such as flowers and such to level up your residential houses.
How to Expand sim City Social City
There are a couple requirements that you must complete in order to expand your City to have additional land building area. These requirements include land permit, numbers of friends, and required population limit. When you have all the requirements fulfilled, you will obtain additional land that you can build your Sim City Social friends with. Because both the land permit and numbers of friends require you to have lots of friends on Facebook, it is good practice to get as many friends who play the game.
Sim City Social Fire and Break in Events
Sim City Social has random events such as break in and fire that can happen to your Sim City Social buildings. To respond and remedy these negative events, you will have to build Sim City Social fire stations and police stations. These protective buildings have certain respond radius that can be upgraded. To truly protect your City from these negative effects, you want to make sure that you build enough of the buildings to cover your buildings.
Sim City Social Friend or Foe
Sim City Social differentiates itself in terms of City building that you will have choices when you are in friend’s Cities. You can either conduct good or bad actions. Good actions will increase levels of friendship and bad actions will increase levels of rivalry. Friendly Sim City Social cities eventually become Sister Cities and high Rivalry cities will eventually become arch enemies. How you play the game social between your friends is up to you!
