CityVille Dam Guide - Everything you need to know


CityVille have launched the Dam and it is know as a 'Dam Good Time'. This is part of the official guides released by CityVille.


It's time to introduce some hydroelectric power to your cities and increase your maximum energy by up to 7 points!



Benefits of having a Dam

  • When you supply the Dam it will increase your maximum energy by +1 (up to 37 total maximum energy)

  • Cool new and unique structure!



Summary FAQ


  • Q: How can I receive the Dam?
    A: You will receive the quest "Power Your City" when you reach level 50.




  • Q: Where can I place the Dam?
    A: You will see a green square highlighting the area with a yellow arrow pointing to it.




  • Q: How often can I supply my Dam to receive energy?
    A: Once every 12 hours.



  • Q: How long can I wait once it's ready to be supplied again?
    A: You have 24 to supply the Dam once it's ready to be supplied, after that your energy bonus will reset.



  • Q: What is the maximum bonus energy that can be received by supplying the Dam?
    A: The maximum bonus is +7, which would increase your total maximum energy to 37.

CityVille Guide to New and Improved Neighbor Visits (Request Help Tool)


This guide is a part of the official guides released by CityVille to help players of the game. Find out how to use the new and improved neighbor visits and other related Q&As relating to this feature.





Use the new Request Help Tool to let your neighbors know where you need help.




Feature Overview

  • This feature is available to levels 10+.

  • Use the Request Help Tool to mark with hearts where you need help.

  • The amount of hearts you have (your heart inventory) is tied to your Reputation Level.

  • Increase your Reputation Level by visiting your neighbors.

  • You can request help on any item that a neighbor can usually tend.

  • If a neighbor helps with the items you requested, you'll be able to post a reward to their wall.




Frequently Asked Questions:

[Q]: How does my heart inventory work?
[A]: You have an inventory of hearts which you can use at any time. Using the Help Request tool takes hearts out of your inventory. Hearts are returned to your inventory when a neighbor tends your marked items, when you harvest or tend your own marked items, or when you use the Help Request Tool to remove the heart from an item.

[Q]: If a friend collects rent from my residences, will I still have a chance to receive population drops?
[A]: Yes.

[Q]: Can I change my mind about where I want help?
[A]: Yes, you can go back to the Request Help tool and click again on an item to remove the heart.

[Q]: Can I see my heart inventory?
[A]: Yes, your heart inventory will display in an icon at the top right of your screen when you are in the Help Request tool.


In Your City:

Requesting Help

Click on the Arrow in your control panel to bring up the Tool Menu. You'll see the new Request Help Tool.



Use the Request Help Tool to mark items you want tended. You can request help with any item that a neighbor can tend, for example:

  • crops (water, harvest, revive)

  • ships (guide, unload, unspoil)

  • residence (collect rent)

  • businesses (add to Mastery progress)

  • chop down trees

  • help build items under construction

Click the item you want your neighbors to tend with the Request Help tool. You'll see a heart marked on the item after you click.



The number of items you can request help with is tied to your reputation level. The higher your reputation, the more items.

Hearts will fade out after you exit the Request Help tool, but will reappear if you reselect the Request Help tool.


Change or Remove Help Request

You can change where you have hearts marked before a neighbor tends the item.

To remove a heart, select the Request Help Tool again and click on the item marked. The heart will go back into your heart inventory and you will be able to reuse it on another item.



Accepting Help

When a neighbor clicks on your requested items, the hearts will return to your heart inventory.

If you harvest or tend an item yourself, the heart will go back to your heart inventory.




Thanking Neighbors Who Help

When you accept a friend's help you'll have the opportunity to post a Thank You to their wall with a reward for them.



You will also have an opportunity to return the visit.



Visiting a Neighbor's City:

Up to 2 neighbors that need help will display in your neighbor bar upon loading. The rest of your neighbors will be in their usual order.



Helping a friend with an item they've marked with a heart results in a boost to the payout.



Helping neighbors increases your Reputation which in turn increases the number of help requests you have.

CityVille Franchise Expansion Guide

Franchises is a fun and exciting feature that lets you expand your businesses to your neighbor’s cities.

To start a Franchise you have to have that business already built in your city, some businesses you can purchase early on in the game, while other have higher level requirements, but you can unlock them with city cash early.


This post is an official guide from the CityVille team to help you get started on expanding your business to your neighbor's cities.

Step 1: Expanding to a neighbor’s city.

To start a franchise you have to have the business already build in your city, then visit a neighbor with an available empty lot. 




Clicking on that empty lot will bring up all the business you own.




We’re going to select and place the bakery. Once you select it you will see an arrow letting you know where it can be placed.



After you have placed your business in your neighbor’s city you have to wait for them to accept it.


Step 2: Collecting and sending a sale.

Once your neighbor accepts your business you will see these two icons icon come up on your screen.




Clinking on the top icon will bring up the Headquarters screen, where you can supply your business (by clicking on supply) and collect your earnings.




Clicking on the second of the two icons will bring up this pop-up telling you that you now have a new headquarters building you can place in your city.




Your new HQ building will be placed in your inventory, which you can find by clicking on the icon right above “Build” on the right.




Once you get to your inventory you will be able to select your new Headquarters.




You can build your headquarters anywhere in your city, like any other building

 

Expand your franchise to more cities and watch it grow! 

And that’s all there is to starting your very own franchise in CitiyVille. Please continue reading if you need help accepting a new franchise business from a neighbor, otherwise go out there and start building!


Accepting a new franchise building from a neighbor. 

You can have one(1) empty lot per neighbor, so as you add more neighbors you will be able to place more empty lots. Your new neighbors will be able to visit your city and expand their businesses.

When a neighbor arrives you will see their picture come up above one of your empty lots.




Clicking on that lot will bring up a menu where you can “accept” (will build that business), “decline” (will not build that business), or you can click on “later” and decide at a later time.




Clicking on “accept” will instantly build that business and send you your first sale.




Click on that business to start it and receive a bonus. Your neighbor will now be able to send you regular sales.

Now that you know how to start a franchise, and how to help your neighbors start theirs, go out there add new neighbors and start expanding your businesses!

How to expand your land in CityVille



How to Expand Your Land





Here is a brief guide on how to expand your land in CityVille. Found on official CityVille forums.
1. Click the “build” tab



2. Click the “expansions” tab



Note: You will need permits to build your expansion(s). You can get the permits from neighbors or buy them with City Cash. Once the permits are obtained, you will also need the city coins to pay for the land.



3. Choose where you want to place your expansion. You must place it along an existing edge of your city limits.



4. Confirm the expansion if it is where you want it. Deny it if the expansion is not where you want it.




These steps must be done for each time you wish to expand your city limits.
