New Sandbox Challenge - The 5 Year Plan - jtracy - 27-10-2011 08:21 PM
I've just created and uploaded a sandbox challenge called "The 5 Year Plan". Normally I do story-based challenges, but decided to throw this one together to see how many people can get a decent score in a sandbox that is rated at only 1% difficulty. How big can you make your island in only 5 years?
Name: The 5 Year Plan
Game Type: Sandbox high score challenge
Difficulty: Extremely Easy
Time Limit: 5 Years
Starting Funds: $25,000
Building Costs: All buildings are free.
Starting Buildings: Palace, Dock, Construction, Teamster
From the Main Tropico 4 menu select:
Challenges > Browse > Online
Type in "The 5 Year Plan" (without the quotes). Select the challenge and click Play.
There are a ton of different strategies you can use, keeping in mind the time constraints. I'll post a strategy tip section for this challenge at TropicoChallenges.com soon.
It is possible to do good and still get a score of zero on this challenge because of its ease. I'll be impressed with those who can get a score higher than 100.
Good luck, El Presidente!

Hah, nice one.
However, Swiss bank will (greatly) contribute to your score. Even during a tutorial you have roughly 600 score, and this map will have it even higher.

For my run through, I built a bunch of banks and put them on Slush Fund to get a final score of 112. The killer is the difficulty multiplier. You get no bonus from that since it is rated at 1% difficulty.

Well the Building Permit is not the only way to earn Swiss. In fact, it's much slower than the CORRUPT CUSTOMS OFFICE! Take that =P!
PS: Presidente has completed the 5 year plan in FOUR YEARS!
PSS: Wow. I've got 139 High Score, yet it shows 1 in the top players tab. /faceplant
