RE: Tropico 4 Newbie Questions
1.Yes.. but remember later game or +500 people,, you really need to plan, Or your gonna be adding to the threads.. WE NEED TRAFIC LIGHTS!!
proper placement of industry and teamsters, and roads to get them home and to their needs is a big issue.. and takes planing.
2.just make sure you have enough teamsters/garages, and watch all of your inputs/outputs.. if everything is over filled, you need more.. If most are empty, or being picked up in good time your most likely ok.
3, housing is a great way to make money.. Just make sure you have enough, and make enough high end housing to bleed the rich dry!
dont forget you can now upgrade appartments and tenements.. with power. BUt leave a few lower end/not upgraded for those not making much cash
tropicans will walk to the closet garage, But for the most part it should be with in reason. For city, i would say a few blocks.. consiter a block about 4 appartments wide.. and sqaure.. (ill call that about 4-5 inches) say take a garage, drop it, place to appartments on either side.. thats about how far i want them to walk.
garage, app, app, road, app, app, garage... that is a typical block.
BUT.. remember houses seam to have a closer radius than needs.. Soo what i do is put housing close to a garage, then put the needs outside that raidious.. UNLESS, you have a full needs area,, like ent, church, market, ect.. sometimes you want to center the radious around them.
If you have farms they can go a bit farther.. Id say about 6-8 inches to the nearest farm.. But in most cases try to get about 3-4 inches, or a block...
Maybe ill upload some pictures later for ya..
