Lemme show you how to get to $1million per month in the game Rise of Industry. Because it deals with multiple industries, Rise of Industry beats other single-industry games for figuring out what kind of business to go into.
This is how to win this type of tycoon game. It shows you how to think about the steps you need to take to build a business. It also shows you how to think about building a business empire or just an economic development in general.
High level rules to flout
- multiple-output 2nd tier goods first
- check the frequency then the price
- If they buy it, build some of it
First Steps For Business Tycoons
- Double the lumbermills - because why not?
- Tech Tree - Freebies
- Efficiency first (250k) - $free
- Efficiency second (1m/mo) [be careful & be conservative] $free
- +3 destination spots for gatherers ($200k)
- +2 overland harvesters (lumber mills and water towers) - $400k
- +2 fields (wheat etc) - $400k
- faster roads - $400k

build a warehouse whose area of effect (aoe) surrounds all three of the stores in your town
Store combinations are more important than individual stores. Why? Because some things you grow may have outputs in multiple stores. Cows sell things in both farmers market and grocery store. Lamb turns into mutton sold in the farmer's market and wool in the hardware store. When you have two basic inputs giving multiple outputs you can sell the outputs for more than the inputs (you make more money on eggs, mutton and milk than selling raw wheat).
- farmer's market and grocery store (chicken, beef)
- hardware & construction (lamb, lumber)
