In this article, we will be explaining the gameplay and help new players quickly progress in the game by suggesting some awesome tips and tricks.
1 What’s the start like?
You start off at San Francisco initially as the “New Port Manager.” The first thing you will need to do is to fix the coal mine to have a trusted source of energy. Dispatch a ship with gold to complete the reconstruction of the coal mine, which will take only about 17 seconds.
The coal mine is important because to build your port; coal is one of the main resources that will be used. Now mine as much coal as possible because it will be helpful in the future for reconstructions. Similarly, you have to unlock the iron mine as well. Without mine, you won’t get resources, and without resources, you cannot build your city.
2 How to progress and level up quickly?
First of all, you need resources, and the best way you can get them is by unlocking all the mines. Initially, the game will guide you through the reconstruction of the coal and iron mine. You will level up instantly, and you will receive keys to containers and experience points. You can use the keys to unlock containers. There are three types of containers: Basic, Advanced, and Supreme. The supreme container will cost you gems, so it’s better not to use it at the start. Unlock the basic container and hope for good items in return. Mainly a container will help you get new ships of a different caliber. Send your ships on different voyages and earn more experience and rewards.
3 What’s the best way to use diamonds?
Never ever use your diamonds to skip waiting times because it’s frankly a waste of the resource. You can rather use the diamonds to unlock containers. And that too the supreme containers which will ensure you more superior items. These items will provide you a better opportunity further down the line in terms of gameplay and progress. Diamonds cannot be easily earned; hence spend them carefully and try to get the most out of them.
4 The strategy to be applied
Focus on building your base at the start because if your start is weak, then you won’t be able to progress quickly and effectively. This being a city planning game, you will need to focus your attention on gathering as many resources as possible. Unlock your resource-providing sectors like mines, mills, factories, etc., which will help provide materials for reconstruction and building your port city according to your liking.
