I need some big help. I have created a city that has about 140,000 citizens now. It's an electronics city.
I have always been in the red on my city's taxes, loosing about $10,000 an hr. now. I have just completed the Electronics quest & now I'm able to build a tv factory. The problem is I am in the red, & I can't import anything because it takes too much money & I'm full up on bonds.
My real question is what people are doing to bring their city back into the green. what can I do as a temp. fix to make some money? Can I just delete some things to help?
From: whitelytning | Posted: 3/27/2013 1:48:37 PM | #005 I was thinking about the university. Do you really need it after you already have the electronics stuff going?
i don't think you need it at all for a tech city, the resources come from importing/mining anyway. You could also use the vu tower to upgrade the tech level of industry.
i think most of the requirements with the uni require it to be there, i don't know what happens if you would turn it off or bulldoze it. I know I turned my town hall off once and I couldn't use it's unlocks until I powered it back on.
If you say fix basic spending problems, please help in that area.
I feel when the city gets to a certain size it's impossible to sustain with just citizens. My largest expense is my trading/specialization. I know once I get my tv factory this will all be mute, but is there anything I can do in the mean time. If I raise taxes too much then people will just leave.
Anyways, I have shipped all my processers, I am done with all those quests, maybe I should just shut down all my trade stuff and build money back up & buy the tv. I wish I would have gone with the smelting then I would not have had to import all that alloy.
