Tropico to Feature Over 80 Structures
4:16 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Gathering of Developers sent a press release to us today with word that more 80 structures will be available for use in Tropico, PopTop Software's strategy/simlulation game. Here are a just a few types of structures that you will be able to contruct in Tropico.

  • Residential -- Housing provides shelter for the population and ensures citizens' happiness.

  • Industrial -- Factories employ workers, emit pollution and produce
    resources for local use and trade.

  • Agricultural -- Farms employ workers and produce food to keep the
    populace healthy and well fed.

  • Mining -- Mines employ workers and provide resources for local use and trade.

  • Tourism -- Resort hotels and spas boost the economy with tourists?
    money.

  • Governmental -- Government buildings express the authority of the
    dictator.

  • Trade -- Ports, airports and roadways allow trade and communication
    with the outside world.
  • Sounds a bit like SimCity, doesn't it? In Tropico, you will have to do much more than manage the demands of different building zones. As the dictator of a remote Carribean island, you must also consider building placement as well. For example, farms should be placed in areas with
    fertile soil, good rainfall, appropriate elevation and close proximity to existing towns, so that food may be grown and the population fed. Put them in the desert, and your crops are sure to die out. For more information on Tropico, visit PopTop's website.
