I had been thinking about starting a dcity for this account for a few days. Pondering how to start it as cheap as possible, since I want to keep my main focus on #myhivegoals. See the post from yesterday.
But last weekend I won 10 Hive in a contest and I decided that I would spend a maximum of 5 Hive on buying cards for dcity and make sure that it would generate a profit and have a positive, or at least not negative popularity.
After a bit of research I found out which cards were the cheapest and wether they were the cheapest when paying for them in Swap.Hive or Sim tokens. And it worked. I bought the following cards:
- 1 public restroom (2 income,-1 popularity, 2 workers) for 1,0656 Hive
- 1 park (2 population, 5 popularity, 1 worker) for 1,3 Hive
- 1 Homeless (1 population, -1 popularity) for 0,4264 Hive
So for the grand Total of 2,792 Hive I created a dcity that makes a profit of 2 SIM per day.
Since I had a bit more Hive left, I decided to buy 1 more Public restroom and two more Homeless cards, so now the base stats of my city before taxes are: 4 SIM income per day, 5 Population, 0 Popularity. This combination of cards is really cheap and due to the fact that Park’s give a really nice Popularity boost for their really low price, it allows you to use these negative Population and Production cards.
Also thinking about this “city” that consists of a park with two public restrooms that are being used by 3 Homeless guys is quite a funny thought.
Next order of business is saving for another Park, so that I can then buy more Public restrooms and hopefully I will get some free Immigrants or Homeless cards. I am really curieus how quickly I will be able to grow this city.
Due to taxes the income is now 3 SIM, so the next park which hopefully will be a similar price or better, will still take a long time. 1,3 Hive is 260 SIM, which is about 87 days at the current tax level.
Tomorrow I hope to continue working on the Strategy for my main account @elbrava. There I want to get into the top200 and I have realized that I should focus more on my income.
See you there!
