CityVille Cheats & Tips: Getting Started
Guide
Check out the rest of our CityVille Cheats & Tips right here.

It's time to set out on another adventure and travel to the far away lands of CityVille. Zynga's new
city-building game puts you at the head of a small country town. After becoming mayor, you'll
construct businesses, spread franchises, build homes, and even do a little farming. CityVille is full
of great features, but this can often be a little overwhelming. Fortunately, our CityVille Cheats &
Tips: Getting Started guide aims to help your city quickly develop into a budding metropolis.

Continue reading to check out our brief CityVille Cheats & Tips: Getting Started Guide to help you
get started building your own city.

Getting Started
CityVille uses the standard XP, Coins, Cash, and Energy
formula found in most Facebook games. You use up
Energy doing tasks around your city, and you gain XP and
Coins from completing these tasks. Get enough XP and
you'll level up. Leveling up opens up new businesses,
houses, decorations, and more for you to build in your city.
Finally, Cash can be bought and is used to buy premium
items, services, and to opt out of sending requests to your friends.

However, CityVille does mix things up by including Goods. Before you can collect Coin payments
from your businesses, you must use Goods to stock up your store, so it's important to have a strong
supply. Goods can be obtained through shipments and by harvesting crops (more on that later).




Houses & Community Buildings
In CityVille, you'll need to construct houses in order for your city to grow. Building houses will
allow more people to move in, and allow you to collect more housing payments. However, your city
has a maximum population limit, and as your city's population approaches the max, the citizens will
get progressively unhappier.

To raise the maximum potential population, you have to build Community Buildings such as a City
Hall or a Post Office. In addition to using up some Energy, these buildings require several of your
friends to help by becoming employees. The alternate option is to pay 1 Cash per every position you
need filled.




Businesses & Franchises
Constructing businesses is crucial to the prosperity of your CityVille City. Businesses, once
unlocked, must be built and stocked before they can start making money.

A business can be turned into a franchise by building it your friends' towns. Once you have a chain
going, you can build the franchise HQ in your own town and start collecting extra Coins. You are
paid more based on the number of stores your franchise has opened. Collect your bonuses at the
HQ.

Complete Goals & Collections
Like other popular Facebook games, CityVille is loaded with goals to complete. Completing goals
rewards you with a variety of extra Coins, XP, Energy and other surprises. At the beginning, goals
are often tasks that you would be doing anyways. So when getting started with CityVille, it's best to
do everything based on what goals you currently have, to get those added rewards.




While in CityVille and working on your town, special items sometimes pop out of buildings. These
items make up collections. Collect one of each of the five objects from the same set, and you can
trade them in for XP, Energy, Coins and more.
Farming & Shipments
CityVille also allows you to work the land. Farming is one of the ways you'll be able to maintain a
constant supply of Goods. Build farm plots on the land, plant seeds, and harvest crops to receive XP
and precious Goods. As always, make sure to harvest those crops on time.




The other way to earn the Goods that stock your businesses, earn you coins, and keep your town
running, is by using shipments. After getting started and completing various goals, you'll be allowed
to make shipments with the train. Shipments either allow you to buy or sell Goods from
neighboring towns. The larger the transaction, the longer the train will take to return. As you
progress through the game, new modes of shipping will become available for even more ways to
collect Goods.

Neighbors & Friends
In CityVille, to turn your town into an urban metropolis, you're going to need a horde of friends to
help you. Friends can be used for almost every task. When visiting a neighboring town, you'll be
able to harvest crops, water seeds, collect rent, and help local businesses. As mentioned above, you
can also create franchises and send trains to your friends' cities.

Another great tip is to watch your friends' walls and your Facebook news feed. Your friends are
bound to post notices to their walls offering free XP, Coins, and Energy which can be extremely
valuable when getting started with CityVille.
The world of CityVille has a ton of features and they can be overwhelming at first. Keeping track of
goods, opening franchises, and collecting rent, all on a limited Energy supply can be incredibly
difficult.




CityVille Cheats and Tips: Energy Guide




CityVille, arguably the most anticipated social game of this season, was launched by Zynga just
today. And, of course, we want you folks to have as fun a time as we are building our cities. That
being said, managing your resources and tapping every possible source is going to maximize your
time in CityVille and thus your overall enjoyment and personal happiness. (Yes, these games are
that powerful.) Energy, the most important resource in nearly every Zynga game, is scarce, but it's
not impossible to find.

Look after the break to find some tips that will increase your time in CityVille to potentially unsafe
levels.

Waiting:
This is obviously the first logical option when you see that Energy timer
being ticking. However, only one Energy point will refill every five
minutes. So, if you just got into this and want to squeeze as much fun as
possible out of it, we suggest you employ this method as a last, last
resort.
Batteries:
The main source of Energy in CityVille, Batteries can be gifted for free as well as bought through
the game's build menu (pictured below) for City Cash. Just click "Build" and then the lightning bolt
icon to access the Energy shop where you can buy Batteries that give either 3, 7 or 12 Energy for 3,
6 and 9 City Cash, respectively. Though, there are some more fun ways to replenish Energy.




Visiting Friends:
My personal favorite, visiting friends daily grants you a whopping 3
Energy for nothing among other rewards like XP, coins and Reputation
points (this stat returns from FrontierVille). The more friends you help, the
more oomph you'll have to do things back Home. Not to mention you'll
look good around your friends, who might come around and help you out
some in return.

Gifting:
As we mentioned before, Energy can be gifted to other players for free,
which means your friends can do the same for you. Just click on the "Free
Gifts" tab that rests on top of the game screen to the left of "Play." From
there, you can select one type of gift to give out at a time--in this case that
being either 1, 2 or 3 Energy Points (much less than Zynga's other games)
with the latter two locked until you reach certain levels.

Collections:
Speaking of gifting, certain Collections (pictured below) in CityVille will yield lots of Energy if
completed. This can be done through playing the game normally, collecting from properties like the
Toy Shop and Coffee House, but there's a neat little feature called the Wishlist that might help. In
your Collections menu (click on the icon to the right of the arrow), you'll see that every item in each
Collection has a small button that looks like the RSS symbol. Click that to add it to your Wishlist
and then click "Share" to broadcast exactly what you need, which should increase your chances of
friends sending you those very items.
Going about your Business:
Just as it sounds, just doing normal tasks like collecting from properties, planting and/or harvesting
crops and chopping down trees all have a chance of restoring spent Energy. Albeit small, work is
progress and progress leads to...

Leveling Up:
Second only to visiting friends (personally), gaining levels restores huge amounts of Energy.
Nothing beats the feeling of being on your last point of Energy as you build the City Hall, only to
level up off of that last point of XP, launching you forward to finish the job.

Unfortunately, there aren't any cheats or get-energy-quick schemes in CityVille that we know of...
yet. But with your help, we just might be able to figure out this game's little quirks that might help
us maximize our Energy even further. So, if you find any interesting (and possibly unintentional)
ways to nab some extra juice, why not let us know? It'll both help this guide and make you look
even more awesome in front of your fellow mayors.

CityVille Franchises: Everything you need to
know
Something unique to Zynga's brand new CityVille is its Franchises. This new feature allows you to
initially choose one business of your own to expand into your friends' cities. Starting a franchise is
simple enough. Just visit a friend's city and find the empty plot of land in their town. Players can
also add additional plots of land and invite their friends to do business with them.

Find out how to create the foundations of a CityVille empire after the break. Before we dive into
this, the most important thing to remember is that Goods--the
lifeblood of all business in CityVille--come only from farming and
other select missions. This secondary resource to Energy fuels all
of your businesses including your franchised ones. As a rule of
thumb, your farmland should always be planted (though, they do
wither) and you might want to build silos. Lots of them.

If this is the first time your expanding, then you'll see a list of all
the businesses you run in your hometown. Choose one and plop it
down on that land just waiting to make some money and you're
good to go. Though, it'll cost some coins to build the new branch--
but fortunately it won't cost any Energy and it completes instantly.
Your friend will later have to accept and soon enough you'll be making some extra cash.

Franchised businesses work much like normal ones, though they're backed by what's called an HQ.
It's from this massive building that you can supply your branches in all of your friends' cities with
Goods as well as collect daily bonuses. Here is also where you'll discover that you can have more
than one franchise with your second opening up at level 10. You'll be taken through the whole
process via a series of goals--which can be found on the left side of the screen--lead by a balding
businessman named Edgar.




After building your franchise into a bustling business with a headquarters, you'll be asked to employ
some friendly competition. This goal will ask you to send 10 spy-packed tour buses to your friends'
businesses to get a leg up on your opponents. Completing goals similar to these will help grow your
franchises and increase your profits.

Think of franchises as what you're really leveling up rather than your city. While in the real world
we wouldn't suggest a mayor do that, it seems that Franchises are going to be what advances us
further in CityVille than just having a pretty little town. As a recap, there are three essentials to
maintaining a Franchise in CityVille: Goods, Energy (which will come from...) and visits to friends.
Now, go forth and and capitalize that city... and a few more while you're at it.

CityVille
Shipping and Expansion: A getting started
guide




If you're going to be a big business tycoon slash mayor of a city, you're going to have to look
beyond just your town. I'm talking expansion, folks, and in CityVille you'll need to do just that (in
more ways than one) if you want to be successful. First things first, you'll need to do some intercity
commerce before you'll be able to expand. Especially considering the first city limits expansion
costs 20 thousand coins.

Welcome to the wide world of exports and imports, which you'll find out about in detail behind the
break.
Shipping can be done two ways: by train or by, well, ship. You'll
only have access to shipping via train until a later mission comes
along that involves building a pier and whatnot. Luckily, the train
station is raring to go as soon as you arrive. However, we don't
recommend you jump into shipping until you're well into the swing
of things (i.e. read our Franchise guide).

Once you have a good amount of goods and cash, each of which
come from farming and collecting from properties, you can start
shipping goods and buying them from Samantha through the Train
Schedule Menu. It's here that you can select to buy or sell goods
and to how many people with varying prices, gains and times.
Selling goods detracts from your supply, but nets you cash while
importing goods does the reverse. Sending an receiving anything from Samantha's city goes
something like this:

-Sell to Samantha: 5 minutes, -50 Goods +150 coins
-Buy from Samantha: 5 minutes, +50 Goods -210 coins

Notice the timer. This is how long it takes for your train to make the trip. Once it returns, you can
collect your Goods or cash. Now, sending goods to multiple friends' cities goes a little differently,
so here are the current rates and times:

Buy Goods:
-3 Friends: 4 hours, +250 Goods -925 coins
-4 Friends: 8 hours, +350 Goods -1,365 coins
-6 Friends: 12 hours, +450 Goods -1,844 coins
-8 Friends: 14 hours, +550 Goods -2,365 coins
-10 Friends: 48 hours, +700 Goods -3,150 coins

Sell Goods:
-3 Friends: 4 hours, -250 Goods +500coins
-4 Friends: 8 hours, -350 Goods +612 coins
-6 Friends: 12 hours, -450 Goods +675 coins
-8 Friends: 14 hours, -550 Goods +687 coins
-10 Friends: 48 hours, -700 Goods +700 coins




You'll notice that when you select to buy or sell goods to a multiple amount of neighbors, that you
can choose which of your friends to include in the exchange. It'd be wise to choose friends who you
do business with normally considering they get a coin bonus for your trains that pass through. Also,
doing this will help remind your friends to continue doing business with you. The returns aren't
exactly amazing currently, which is most likely due to the fact that Goods are relatively easy to
come by through farming right now. But imagine that later on the game, as in when overseas
shipment is open to everyone, that this will become extremely important in fueling your eventual
list of franchises.

Eventually, there will be an interesting balance to be maintained once everyone reaches higher
levels of commerce. It seems that the pier and ships will be an automated process, simply collecting
goods on various timers. But before you can build a pier and start shipping good internationally, so
to speak, you'll need to become the mayor. (We'll have more on both once these options become
available.)




Now that you've built up the savvy to support your imminent explosion onto to commerce scene,
let's talk literally. Just like in other Zynga games, the option to expand your land is there from the
beginning in the Build menu. However, the first land grab, at 12x12, costs a whopping 20 thousand
coins. You'll also need a Zoning Permit, which your friends can gift you for free from the Gifting
Menu.
Expansion behaves a bit differently than in Zynga's other games. Instead of just growing larger on
all sides, you'll be granted a 12x12 spot of land that you can choose to place along any one of your
city's four edges. This opens things up for a little strategy. For instance, if you're near a local river or
the coastline, I would highly recommend expanding in that direction first to get a pier going as early
as possible. Until that time comes, just keep on farming, shipping those goods and growing your
franchise empire.

CityVille Cheats and Tips: A Goods
Management Guide




Now that you've expanded your Franchise empire along with the boundaries of your booming town
in CityVille, it's time to get those Goods in line. I don't know about you, but I often find myself
maxed out on Goods upon logging into the game. In fact, it's gotten to the point where, at times, I
can't even harvest my crops before somehow getting rid of my gobs of Goods. However, there are a
few ways to optimize your Goods management so that you don't run into the same problem.

1. The Right Crops for the Right Time
The number one way to control the amount of Goods you produce is planting smart. This isn't
FarmVille anymore where the motto normally goes, "The more crops, the better!" Remember to be
sure of the yield of each crop and its harvest time before planting. Now, you don't have to break out
the calculator or anything (well, unless you're that intent on efficiency), but an idea of how many
Goods are waiting for you in a few hours or days is good to keep in mind. For instance, I would
strongly recommend against planting a field full of corn when you already have half of your Goods
limit in storage.

Jump behind the break for four more tips on how effectively manage your Goods.




2. You're Gonna' Need a Bigger Boat
Or in this case, a bigger barn. There are currently only four storage solutions in the game and they're
as follows:

-Silo: 250 coins; 100 Storage
-Red Barn: 1,000 coins; 415 Storage
-Sticks: 1,125 coins; 485 Storage
-Cargo Shed: 10 City Cash; 1,000 Storage

While it is mighty tempting to just say, "Forget it," and put up for the Cargo Shed, smart buys and
even smarter positioning can help you avoid paying real dollars just to keep your Goods in safe
keeping. While Silos are the cheapest solution to Storage, they're not exactly efficient. A much
better strategy, although more expensive, would be to line up multiple Barns and Sticks adjacent to
one another facing your farmland. In fact, the best way to build in CityVille is in a grid format
similar to this, though it's not 100 percent necessary. The bottom line here is that if you place Barns
and Sticks intelligently along the borders of your farmland or city, letting Silos fill in any
unavoidable blanks, you should be fine when it comes to Storage.

3. Time is Money (and Goods)
Say it with me: Collect from and supply businesses as often as possible. Actually, collecting from
Businesses should hold a much higher priority than collecting rent, taxes and free from residential
buildings. Here's a scenario: if you only have a few Energy left, yet both your Businesses and
Housing are ready to be collected from, which would spend your remaining Energy on? If your
answer was cutting down Trees, you're are not even close to getting it. All kidding aside, just collect
from the Businesses. This way, you'll get both coins and will be able to supply those Businesses,
which costs nothing but Goods--and that's exactly what we want to get rid of.
4. Meet Expanding Demand with Expanding Supply
Franchises are a funnel for Goods. Every day, you'll be able to supply a huge portion of your Goods
to your Businesses in other cities. And it only gets better with the more places your Businesses pop
up. As soon as you're able to, open another Franchise as soon as possible. (Second and third
Franchise opportunities open up at Levels 10 and 20.) With two Franchises running Businesses in
multiple cities you could easily unload 75 percent of your Goods the moment you log in and click
the "Supply" button a few times.

5. All Aboard!
While we've touched on Shipping before, we didn't exactly touch its importance when it comes to
Goods management. And the reason why it's at the end of this list is because, frankly, it's a last
resort. But don't think it's not equally as important. To put it into perspective, shipping Goods via
Train can rid you of up to 700 Goods in an instant. While many of us haven't expanded to a local
waterway to give international shipping a go, surely that will provide an even better way of
dumping excess Goods elsewhere while making some money in the process. So, when you're at a
loss of where to put the rest of those Goods after everything else has been taken care of, send them
off on a train and make a few friends happy.




CityVille Cheats and Tips: How Decorations
Earn You More Coins
While efficient Goods management and mastering your Franchises in CityVille will certainly make
you a far more successful mayor, one player has pointed out an extremely important aspect of the
game that has the potential to send your profits sky high by implementing some hardcore decorating
methods.

You can see in the image above, Josh Morlan (a.k.a. morlanjo) has done his math, using the Pool
Hall as his example, he calculated that:
      Normal Pool Hall output: 420 coins
      Output with bonus: 1391 coins
      1 energy = 1391 coins
      Each Charlieville train I send out for more goods nets me 991 coins (that's
      -400 coins for the 100 production)

Basically, collecting money from businesses will always cost 1 Energy (Note: Resupplying
businesses with goods doesn't use up Energy!). So he decided to choose a business that will pay him
the most money and raise its profits by surrounding it with decorations that offer the biggest boosts.
For most folks, that big boost decoration would be the Arboretum, which offers +16% and costs
4,000 Coins. In the top image, you can see he's also using the Bronze Statue (+2%) and Flower
Patch (+1%) to plug any leftover space. Why is there space leftover? Well, your business needs to
connect to the Asphalt Roads in order to make money. Between his Bronze Statues, you can see the
small strip of Sidewalk that lets the Pool Hall connect to the street.

After all these changes, each Energy Josh spends on the Pool Hall will now nab him 1,391 Coins
instead of 420 Coins. The great thing about this setup is that you can reuse the Arboretum on the
sides by putting down another business. You can also swap out the business for a higher paying one
when it becomes available. (Hot Tip: The bonus boosts work for when you collect, so you can use
this decoration plan on more than one business. You just gotta do it one at a time.) This seems to be
the best Energy-saving and money-making plan for the long run.
Another user, Michael A. Coan (a.k.a. macoan) made some handy charts to help other players with
laying down decorations. For businesses that take up a 4x4 space (such as Josh's Pool Hall), click
here. For those that use up 3x3, click here.

Who would've thought that having less businesses and more decorations can get you more money?

CityVille Cheats and Tips: Guess What? You
Don't Need Roads!

There's two schools of thought when it comes to the best way to play CityVille -- that is, whether
looking pretty and saving land is more important than cramming things to the hilt and saving
Energy. Right now, the prevailing wisdom of players is to value Energy-saving over land space.
Today, we already showcased an awesome way to save Energy by using decorations. But if you find
yourself running out of space more than Energy, here's some pointers:




1. Franchise HQs don't need Roads to work. They take up 5x5 of space, which is a lot, but you need
them to manage your franchises. Most people put these buildings off to the side, but they offer a
+2% boost range of 11x11 to businesses. (You can see from the sample image that one HQ can
bonus boost up to five businesses.) So put 'em where you can use their bonus boosting power!




2. Community buildings (e.g. Post Office, Police, City Hall, etc.) and Storage buildings (e.g. Silo,
Red Barn, Sticks, etc.) don't need roads either. Community buildings give out money and owning
them allows you to have a bigger population. And Storage buildings let you have more goods. But
other than that, these are pretty useless. Profit bonuses from decorations don't work on them. So if
you have to put a building in the corner, do it to these two kinds!
3. Contrary to the headline of this post, roads are important. We all know certain buildings can't
earn coins unless they're somehow touching the roads. So what do I mean when I say you don't need
them? Well, the game starts you off with some Asphalt Roads already in place. This means most of
us are tempted to keep using them, so we buy more for 10 Coins each. But a better substitute is
actually the City Sidewalk, which costs 20 Coins. If you care about space, one Asphalt Road takes
up 3x3 land, but one City Sidewalk takes up just 1x1 land. Instead of connecting your buildings by
using the Asphalt Road, use the City Sidewalk!

(Note: A piece of City Sidewalk must be touching a piece of Asphalt Road to work. See the above
image where I put down one piece of road in the middle of nowhere, connected the Sidewalks to it,
and the businesses are functional? And that one Coffee Shop has some Sidewalk sticking out of it,
but the game says it's "Not connected to road.")

CityVille Cheats and Tips: Visit Neighbors
early and often
While we've covered visiting neighbors in passing once or twice in our ongoing series of Cheats
and Tips for CityVille, it's only just now that the CityVille team has given us some vital information
about how they work. Whether you're a hardcore mayor or just a casual city council member, these
tips on how to maximize your bonuses from neighbor visits could potentially launch ahead of your
friends in your favorite new Zynga game.

First off, every time you visit a brand new neighbor for the first time you will be rewarded with 100
coins, 3 Energy and 1 XP. Now, that's a pretty hefty bonus just for popping in and welcoming your
new friend to the game, don't you think? As you all probably know already visiting friends daily
after the fact nets you the standard 50 coins, 1 Energy and 1 XP.

Join us after the break for more details on exactly how neighbor visits work.




Visiting a neighbor grants players five actions, marked by lightning bolts on the left hand side of the
screen. These actions can be used to help your friend by providing business via tourist buses,
chopping their trees, collecting fees from their properties or harvesting their crops. Though, we
recommend avoiding that last option altogether--it almost always leads to complaints.

We'll admit it, we lied (at least only a little bit). While the visiting bonuses are available daily, they
actually run on a 23-hour clock, meaning that they reactivate every 23 hours instead of 24. For the
most hardcore of CityVille players, this will mean the world--but this news won't mean much to us
more casual mayors as we actually enjoy sleep. However, here's where things get interesting.
While the visitation bonuses are only available every 23 hours, your five actions will replenish
every 12. This means that you can level up your Reputation score ( the meter that replaces your
Energy when visiting friends) even more than before--bonus or not. Though you might not see
yourself taking advantage of this piece of information, consider this tip. Why not try logging into
the game just before you go into work or school and visit all of your friends? Then, by the time you
come home, your friends should be ready for some help yet again. Try this out and you might see
that Reputation score fill up even faster than your experience level. And if some of you feel that
Reputation is a meaningless number, check out what CityVille forum moderator Sugar Monkey has
to say about that:
     The number of bonuses you can get from neighbor visits also depends on your total
     reputation, so if your reputation is lower than the number of neighbors you have you
     will run out of bonuses before you will run out of neighbors to visit.

This means that although bonuses run on a 23-hour timer, they're are governed by your Reputation
score as well. For example, if you have a Reputation score of 6 and you have eight neighbors, you
will only be able to collect bonuses from six of your friends daily until your Reputation matches the
number of friends you have. Basically, increase your Reputation to allow yourself to take advantage
of all the bonuses your neighbors have to offer. So, as the game continues, requiring more neighbors
for more features, you might want to take advantage of that 12-hour timer to make sure your
Reputation matches your popularity.

CityVille Collections Guide: Where to find
items, and the rewards you'll receive




As most CityVille players have picked up on by now, there is a huge section of CityVille dedicated
to the completion of item collections. Similar to the collections found in other Zynga games
(FarmVille and FrontierVille, as examples), these collection items can be earned by simply playing
the game. Collections are themed, and if you can find all five items in a particular collection in
CityVille, you'll be able to trade those items in for a helpful goodie(s) in the game. These prizes can
be Experience Points, Energy Refills, or even exclusive decorative items that can only be earned
through trading in collections, among other things.

Meet us behind the break for a complete list of the current collections available in CityVille,

CityVille Cheats and Tips: Reputation by the
numbers




In CityVille, Reputation is more important than you might think. Anyone who has read our guide on
Neighbor Visits might agree. As many probably know already, doing each of the five actions you're
allowed for a Neighbor every 12 hours drops a single Heart. These Hearts act exactly like the blue
stars that stand for XP while tending to your own city, but increase your Reputation level.

However, few might have known exactly how many Hearts it takes to get your Reputation to the
maximum level of 50. Here's a hint: it rhymes with "heaven" and ends in "thousand." That's right, it
takes a whopping 7,000 Hearts to reach Reputation Level 50

Join us after the break for a full breakdown of how many Hearts it takes to achieve each Reputation
level in CityVille.

And here you are: the number of Hearts needed for every level of
Reputation in CityVille:

    •   Level 2 – 10 Hearts
    •   Level 3 – 25 Hearts
    •   Level 4 – 45 Hearts
    •   Level 5 – 70 Hearts
    •   Level 6 – 100 Hearts
    •   Level 7 – 200 Hearts
    •   Level 8 – 300 Hearts
    •   Level 9 – 400 Hearts
    •   Level 10 – 500 Hearts
    •   Level 11 – 600 Hearts
    •   Level 12 – 700 Hearts
    •   Level 13 – 800 Hearts
    •   Level 14 – 900 Hearts
    •   Level 15 – 1000 Hearts
    •   Level 16 – 1100 Hearts
    •   Level 17 – 1200 Hearts
    •   Level 18 – 1300 Hearts
    •   Level 19 – 1400 Hearts
    •   Level 20 – 1500 Hearts
    •   Level 21 – 1750 Hearts
    •   Level 22 – 2000 Hearts
    •   Level 23 – 2500 Hearts
    •   Level 24 – 3000 Hearts
    •   Level 25 – 3500 Hearts
    •   Level 26 – 4000 Hearts
    •   Level 27 – 4500 Hearts
    •   Level 28 – 5000 Hearts
    •   Level 29 – 6000 Hearts
    •   Level 30 – 7000 Hearts
    •   Level 31 – 8000 Hearts
    •   Level 32 – 9000 Hearts
    •   Level 33 – 10000 Hearts
    •   Level 34 – 11000 Hearts
    •   Level 35 – 12000 Hearts
    •   Level 36 – 13000 Hearts
    •   Level 37 – 14000 Hearts
    •   Level 38 – 15000 Hearts
    •   Level 39 – 16000 Hearts
    •   Level 40 – 17000 Hearts
    •   Level 41 – 18000 Hearts
    •   Level 42 – 19000 Hearts
    •   Level 43 – 20000 Hearts
    •   Level 44 – 21000 Hearts
    •   Level 45 – 22000 Hearts
    •   Level 46 – 23000 Hearts
    •   Level 47 – 24000 Hearts
    •   Level 48 – 25000 Hearts
    •   Level 49 – 30000 Hearts
    •   Level 50 – 35000 Hearts


As you can see, things get a little crazy around Level 28, doubling the amount of Hearts required for
each level to one thousand. The best way to level your Reputation as quickly as possible is to make
as many friends as you can and master the 12-hour timer system attached to Reputation. As silly as
it sounds, scheduling your Neighbor visits around your daily life will maximize your daily
Reputation games. But it's up to you if you want to take it that far.
CityVille Cheats & Tips: How to become
Mayor

So you've decided to start playing CityVille and become Mayor of your own city. You've been
putting up buildings, farming, decorating your city, using our CityVille guides, and expanded your
franchises; yet somehow you still haven't become Mayor of your growing CityVille town. Have you
been nominated as a candidate by Samantha, but still not sure how to become Mayor? Fortunately,
our CityVille Cheats & Tips: How to become Mayor guide has all the answers to help you rise up as
leader of your city and unlock the pier shipment seaport. It's easy to become Mayor in CityVille;
follow our guide and you'll be an elected official in no time.




Like many other developments in CityVille, to become Mayor you need to complete missions.
Starting with the first mission in the game, here are all the missions you need to complete to reach
CityVille's Become Mayor mission:
    •   Name Your City!
    •   City is Born
    •   First Neighborhood
    •   Incoming Shipment
    •   Build a Bakery!
    •   Plant A City Flag
    •   User Flies City Flag Proudly
    •   A Post Office!
    •   Build City Hall! - This is where you become nominated for Mayor, now let's get you
        elected!
    •   Clear Trees!
    •   Rita's Flower Garden
    •   The Burger Joint
    •   Build A Silo!
    •   Build Franchises
    •   Build Headquarters
    •   Run Remote Franchise
    •   Fuel Town Finances
    •   Build A New Park
    •   Increase Population
    •   Build School
    •   Become Mayor!

Though it looks as though becoming Mayor in CityVille is a ton of work, if you've been playing,
you've probably completed most of these missions already. Check your game to see what mission
you're up to, then find it in our list above to see how many missions you have left until election day.
Chances are you're much closer to becoming CityVille's Mayor than you think.




When you finally reach the Become Mayor! CityVille mission, you'll have quite a daunting task in
front of you. To complete the mission you must:
    • Have 1,000 population
    • Collect from Businesses 30 times

You can prepare for this mission in advance by building Community Buildings so that you're
population is already at 1,000 by the time CityVille's Become Mayor mission comes around.
Remember, the school you have to build for the previous mission (Build School) will raise your
population limit by 500. Other than that, to become Mayor all you have to do is collect from 30
businesses, which shouldn't take too long at all.
But becoming Mayor is just another chapter of the CityVille saga. Once you're the Mayor of your
city, you'll unlock the pier seaport and even more missions to explore. Shipping with piers can be
complicated, but with our CityVille Shipment Guide and your new position as Mayor of CityVille,
you should have no problem figuring it out.
