Tropico 6: Gameplay Basics

Tropico 6 Gameplay Fundamentals

This information tries to explain fundamentals of Tropico 6. A lot of the previous gamers already new this issues, however I hope will probably be helpful for newcomers.

Different Tropico 6 Guides:

Transport and metropolis planning

Tropicans can successfully stroll on foot in a circle with 9 squares radius (space of 1 metro station):

So on ideally suited flat map you possibly can construct a sq. districts of 20×20 dimension (or possibly 25×25). Place homes, grocery and church within the heart; manufacturing buildings on the perimeters and not-so-visited buildings (like rubbish dump or embassies) within the corners. Throughout then World wars period facilities of the districts could also be related with buses and since Chilly Conflict buses will probably be changed with metro stations.

Different means is to construct parkings and use “Proper to wheels” edict.

Every tropican can use a small boat to get to the port one other island.

There are few sorts of ports in Tropico:

  • touchdown and vacationer port settle for solely small boats
  • foremost port and teamster port may also be utilized by teamsters and builders

Driving boat is quicker than strolling, so on some maps you possibly can construct districts on completely different islands and residents will simply get there with out buses.

Buying and selling

The identical foreign money is used for exterior buying and selling and on the islands.

Every thing produced on the island will probably be moved to the port (if it’s not required in another constructing). By default every little thing that seems within the port when the ship arrives will probably be exported. You’ll be able to disable this conduct by eradicating tick within the product record:

Right here “Logs” are disabled from export. For this product port turns into a form of warehouse the place logs might saved and used.

Additionally there are commerce contracts:

  • export ones simply improve value of the product. Bonus is dependent upon superpower relationships and is as much as 25%
  • import truly permits importing items. For instance, you possibly can have Rum Distillery with out sugar plantations; simply use the contract.

Commerce contracts have three attainable quantities:

  • medium
  • massive is like “perpetually”; you signal it whether it is actually whole lot and shouldn’t be modified

Reexport is feasible: you possibly can signal one contract for import beneath base value, and the products will probably be exported supplying you with revenue out of nothing.

Quantity of merchandise imported per one ship go to is dependent upon period. Ship brings 500 items at one time in colonial period, 1000 items in WW and many others.

There isn’t any must have a couple of port (evaluating to Tropico 5 the place just a few ports have been required). However you possibly can construct further ones if you’d like ships to seem extra typically.

El Presidente and authorities buildings

There’s one and solely El Presidente (or La Presidenta) on the island.

El Presidente may give election speeches promising tropicans one thing

El Presidente can go to buildings; it prices some cash and boosts constructing productiveness. Additionally this mechanics is utilized in varied quests.

You’ll be able to construct a “Ministry: constructing and appoint 5 ministers: overseas affairs, inside, schooling, financial system and navy. Every minister brings some form of bonus, however the maintenance of the ministry is about $300 per 30 days so be sure you can afford it.

Different authorities buildings embody:

  • immigration workplace can management (or prohibit) immigration
  • courthouse handles dangerous results associated to arresting folks
  • customs workplace

Tropicans and their wants

There are three ranges of schooling:

  • uneducated
  • highschool
  • faculty

Every constructing has a minimal required stage of schooling for its employees. An individual with increased schooling stage can work on decrease place however not vice versa.

Additionally there are 5 ranges of wealth:

  • broke (largely for unemployed folks)
  • poor
  • well-off
  • wealthy
  • filthy wealthy (largely criminals)

Wealth stage for an individual is calculated for entire household together with kids (see additionally “Baby allowances” edict), so folks with the identical wage could also be assigned to completely different ranges. Nevertheless normally a wage of $11-$25 makes tropican well-off and folks with decrease wages are poor.

Residential buildings have a minimal wealth requirement. For instance, Condo is for well-off folks so poor and damaged can’t reside there.

Service buildings (leisure, medical and church buildings) even have a minimal wealth requirement.

Every particular person has following wants (happiness):

  • well being care – entry to medical buildings
  • meals. By default every tropican can go to any plantation or ranch and take meals at no cost. Nevertheless he will probably be a lot happier to take varied sorts of meals within the grocery
  • leisure – entry to leisure buildings. Word, the Tavern satisfies this want and never a “meals” want
  • crime security
  • job high quality
  • liberty is a bit tough. It’s lowered by navy buildings and police stations; and elevated by media. However some folks (like communists) on the island don’t like excessive liberty and need it to get lowered.

Buildings, teamsters, electrical energy

Each constructing has following parameters:

  • quantity of employees. Word, normally it’s nice that just one or two of the employees are current on the manufacturing unit and others wander elsewhere. Simply be certain they will get to work simply and fulfill their fundamental wants.
  • minimal schooling stage for employees.
  • price range is the simplest option to change productiveness of the constructing

You’ll be able to hearth employee right-clicking his face within the constructing. Proper click on on empty icon closes emptiness (and all vacancies to the correct) so the constructing will function with lowered workforce.

Left click on on empty emptiness asks to import employee with required schooling stage from overseas. It prices cash and this particular person will arrive on subsequent ship. Additionally if there may be not sufficient folks on the island you possibly can attempt to carry out “Rescue” raid in Pirate Cove.

Service buildings moreover have

  • quantity of serviced shoppers (is dependent upon whole quantity of employees)
  • service high quality – that’s how they fulfill folks wants

Additionally there are some phrases associated to manufacturing buildings:

  • effectivity is period of time wanted for one employee to provide one merchandise.
  • consumption charge (for factories) is quantity of sources wanted to create one unit of product
  • air pollution

Numerous edicts, constructing upgrades, modes and many others normally change considered one of this parameters.

Storage limits within the constructing can trace the consumption charge. For instance:

  • Lumber mill shops 4960 logs and 9900 planks
  • Boat manufacturing unit shops 9900 planks and 1280 boats
  • Rum distillery shops 6960 sugar and 3584 rum

And it appears to be like near consumption: one log per 2 planks, two sugar for one rum, 7-8 planks for one boat.

Manufacturing velocity (effectivity) is completely different for various sorts of merchandise. For instance, boats have the best value per 1000 items. However it would take loads of time produce 1k boats and possibly you’ll get identical amount of cash with different merchandise.

Teamsters ship items from one constructing to a different (or to the port). There isn’t any clear formulation to find out how a lot teamsters you want. The most effective recommendation is to test output storage in few manufacturing buildings; if the shop an excessive amount of items you then want further teamster workplace.

Some buildings require electrical energy to function. Simply construct some energy plant and it’ll provide electrical energy to any constructing in some radius. You’ll be able to lengthen the protection with electrical substations if wanted.


<To be applied>

Vacationers are much like tropicans besides they don’t must work. They use transport in identical means as tropicans and so they have a wealth stage for accessing leisure buildings.
