Video tutorial on Drilling for Oil 1080P

#1metroid888Posted 4/30/2013 10:55:55 PM
Hi everyone I'm DinosGG and this is my third series on the specializations in Sim City, this time I focus on drilling for oil! Oil has a few big advantages because you can start earning money really fast, there isn't as much build up time as electronics.

Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW97wos4xxY

The full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW97wos4xxY&list=PL52nb8KiT9mYtluyFKSnmila6IyEslLn0&index=1

In my first video I get all the ground work laid out for my city and what my plan is going to be and get my first oil well up and cranking out oil! The city builds up pretty fast it's a great starter city if you're new to the game! Don't forget if you like this video to subscribe on youtube.com/DinosGG where I have a tutorial on Electronics as well as on Gambling (both are before patch 2.0) and you can check out the livestream twitch.tv/DinosGG for live content!

Thanks for watching and enjoy!

DinosGG here again and part 2 is all done, this one will be split into two separate videos due to comcast.

Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wChancO6BHs

Part 2-1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfIBe1cnEDU&lc=VRcy_FwJnw_PIq-9jIoBbbPyBJt_evBqcXvPfTzTsX4&feature=em-comment_received&lch=email

In these videos I get a bit of education down to help out with my sims getting sick and lighting themselves on fire. Later on I get the petroleum HQ plopped so I can start making refineries to bring in some real cash.

Don't forget if you're looking for more tutorials to check out my electronics series, I go through step by step the setup process involved and we end up making a ton of money there too!

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more episodes!

Hey everybody DinosGG here and this is part 3 on my series on how to build a drilling city! We're getting close to the end Oil is a great starting point for a new city it will earn you a ton of money really quickly!

Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOnfUAg1VuA

The full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW97wos4xxY&list=PL52nb8KiT9mYtluyFKSnmila6IyEslLn0&index=1

In part 3 I start moving onto the refinery to make me money. A key thing about the Refinery is the difference between plastic and fuel. 1.2 units of oil ($9000 per shipping unit) make 2.4 units of plastic ($21000 per shipping unit), where fuel is made by 2.4 units of oil gets converted into 2.4 units of fuel (36000? per shipping unit). So basically plastic earns you $42000 for the same amount of oil, it's much more economical to make and export plastic since the global market still isn't enabled.

Hi everyone DinosGG and I've got the final part for oil all finished!

Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2RF0uSiK0s

Part 4 is basically just the closing for the series, I've got all the ground work set to make as much money as I feel like making! I go over some of the trading numbers and do a small bit of optimization on my Oil Fields. There was a comment I was getting a lot on youtube and apparently you don't have to place the oil well main building on top of oil, it's just the pumpjacks that need to be on top of Oil, I wish I had known this before I started, great find from the viewers!

If you've had fun watching this series don't forget to subscribe and check out my other tutorials, I have a video series on Electronics as well as Casinos (prepatch 2.0). I make millions with electronics and.. well... scrape by with Casinos lol.

Thanks again everyone and enjoy!

Hey, just wanted to say "thanks a ton" for these tutorials you're making. They've been a great help for me.

If I may be so bold, I would not mind seeing a metals / coal play through. Granted, it's not a ton different from Oil. Can't wait to watch the updated Casino Town.

See I did not notice that and went for Fuel because it "seemed" better. Not quite on topic but I am actually wondering, whats the most profitable for electronics (did not watch that tutorial cause I have already made a few electronic cities and they are doing fine). I have noticed that TVs take Processors and Plastic only and Computers take Processors and Alloy only. Additionally the cost per hour per computer assembly line module is 100 simoleans per hour more than a tv assembly line. Of course I know computers sell for more than TVs but I don't actually know if its more profitable based on those factors or not... any advice?
