Bill & Mike's Transport Tycoon Tips and Tricks
Making Cities Grow
Cities are an important part of the Transport Tycoon game. You
need large, economically active cities to provide passenger and
mail traffic, and to consume goods from the manufacturing operations.
We recommend investing a little time and money in city growth
right at the beginning of the game. Set up a small (2 or 3 stop)
bus route in each of the cities that you regard as important.
Later, as the game progresses, these cities will grow faster than
the cities that you have ignored.
If you make too many changes (terrain or infrastructure) near to
a city, the city council reduces your approval level. You need certain
approval ratings in order to perform operations within city boundaries.
The table below summarizes these approval ratings and permissions:
||Destruction of Church
||Destruction of Football Field
||Destruction of Large Building
||Destruction of Small House
||Build or Replace Station
||Build Track or Road
There are only two ways to increase your approval rating: plant trees, or wait.
If you are in a hurry, start planting trees around the city. We recommend that
you watch your approval rating as you do this, so that you don't go to far.
You can only plant trees on empty land or on farm land, so you may be limited.
Only plant as many trees as it takes to get back to the necessary approval
level. By the way, we have never been able to get above "good" by planting
trees. To get "excellent" you'll just have to wait.
