Winning wars

Build a wall around your city, then build a Big Pen (square) with walls outside your city. Place the cursor inside the pen and fill it (square) with hippos after enabling the Hippo Stomp code. When an army is attacking, open the pen and the hippos will go on a killing rampage. Note: Do not let any hippos get inside your city because they will kill everyone they find.

Easy money hints

-Even if your city has limited resources, you can usually import cheap raw materials and turn them into more expensive products. Export those products to other cities for a nice profit.

-To start a level with double the amount of Debens, choose a mission and start it. Then, click "Restart Mission" in the file menu. This only works once per mission.

A small, tightly managed community is more efficient than a sprawling metropolis. Expanding too quickly results in too few workers, and your city will suffer.
