    Building Decisions

    CityVille CityVille currently doesn’t have a whole lot of different residences but the ones you have are good enough for this new game. It is up to you to decide what residences you want to build since everyone will want to have a different looking city to match their own tastes. Each residence that you build will add to your total population but you’ll soon hit a wall and won’t be able to build anymore. Your city will also need municipal buildings to increase the overall total population your city can hold. Some quests will also require you to build certain residence buildings too. In the early stages of the game you should concentrate more on businesses and crops since this will give you more money at a rapid pace.

    Expansions and Growth

    CityVille To make room for more houses you’ll need to buy permits or have Facebook friends send them to you. For each expansion you’ll require one more additional permit until you reach twenty. After twenty each expansion will cost twenty permits each. In this game you can a small area to place your expansion so although your city will grow slowly you have control over how it will look. Try to use different houses and not all the same style since this gives you a very stale looking city. When you have enough population you’ll sell your goods quickly in your shops allowing for a better income stream for your growing city.
