Issue Tips for 0.800
No Money Build Banks, build Police around Banks. Be very careful with the crime generated.
Too Much Pollution Wind blows smog to the right. Try to build to the left of your pollution producers. Build overlapping Hazmats to clean up the smog cloud.
Too Much Litter Build Dumps, quickly. Disable or bulldoze your resource extractors.
Too Much Crime Crime is very serious. It will cause riots and end up with many people dying. Build Police so that every building is within the radius of a Police or Riot Police (Parks might work). It is the total police versus total crime that triggers riots. Build overlapping Riot Police to cover your high crime buildings (Banks, Stock Exchanges, International Banks, Air Cargo Bays, Linguistic Centers). Keep pollution and litter under control. If you have any buildings outside of police protection, they will generate massive amounts of crime. Disable or bulldoze crime causes if necessary to keep things under control.
