|How to Play Simcountry
New players in Simcountry are advised to start by looking around and see how countries are organized, check their education, healt, their corporations and finance. Look at your current level indicators and you will see what needs to be done to move into the next level. Reading some documentation will help too.
Click on the underlined texts on many of the pages. There are hundreds of hints that can provide info on specific functions.
There is an "important things to do" link on the country home page that will help you find simple things you can do to start with.
It seems like there are hundreds of pages and it may look complex. It is not difficult if you take it bit by bit.
Don't try to build a large army in the first days but rather try to understand how weapons can be purchased and what they can do for you in time of war and try to get a feeling of what needs to be done in order to improve your economy and start earning the money you need to build up the country.
Playing Simcountry is somewhat like steering a huge tanker. If you want to make a turn, you must turn the wheel early because large tankers tend to continue in the same direction long after you started turning the wheel.
Examples: Education does not change from one day to another. It takes time to turn out the professionals you need. Building corporations, producing weapons, takes some time and must be started on time for things to come together when you need them.
Try changing parameters, build up corporations and look into the effects of your actions. It will all start to make sense very quickly.
