SimCity series has been a combination of both being a simulation and a strategy game. You as the mayor of the city is directly responsible for its success or its downfall. Now the main aim of the game is basically earn the money needed for the city and its Sims to live a sustainable lives. Well, that is easy said than done. Now, as I have played the game for quite sometime now and was able to progress on relatively quickly. I am going to share a secret that will help you earn fast money to finance your city.
The whole idea of this strategy is to make use of the resources that your city. Now basically, my city used to be focused on oil and mining, but later on I just realized that it is not enough to give you insane amounts of money. Later on, I discovered that the trading specialization and electronic specialization work well with each other and gives you, by far, the biggest amount of money in a short period of time.
One thing that you should keep in mind is that in order for your Sims to be able to will versed with works for Electronics and Trading Headquarters, they have to be well-educated. Thus, having quality school establishments is necessary. Overall, the city strategy is not to earn money from taxes or at least no to be dependent from it. Instead, you are dependent on huge earnings from your city specialization. That way you can make happy by not raising taxes. You can actually go as low as 1 percent and keep your Sims without complaints from taxes, whatsoever.
Generally this strategy is not for those who are impulsive. This is time consuming at first but in the end it is ultimately rewarding. As the adage goes, great things come to those who wait.
