Introduction

Welcome to dCITY! Here, you can build your own city on the Hive platform and be the master of your own kingdom.

dCITY is a city simulator game based on Hive-Engine Non Fungible Tokens. The NFTs represent assets in the game. Each individual card a building, citizen, etc., and the total collection of your cards is your city. dCITY allow players to optimize their cities in terms of buildings, population, and income. The aim of the game is to buy new buildings, but also use diplomacy and tact with fellow players to achieve the materials you need to grow and prosper. Obviously, there are several ways you can approach this, but we’ll let you learn them on your own and test them out.

This IS a numbers game, but with the added randomness of society. There will be events which can have either a positive or negative impact on your city, depending on how your city is built. Choose wisely when helping or refusing to help another player. They might need your help today, but you never know when you might need their help in the future.

    important note There are other factors like taxes or crime influencing your final SIM income
  • Popularity: Gives % bonus to Population. Math: (Popularity^0.7)*100
  • Required Workers: To receive income from buildings, you need to have enough people (Population) to work there

Buildings are filled with workers from lowest card id to highest.

Additional attributes:

Creativity: required for finding a background; 80 creativity = 1% chance to find a background with a default cap at 25%. Also city needs at least 1 Art Gallery.

Rewards

There are 2 reward pools:

SIM tokens: Your daily earnings from income. These can be used to purchase new cards, either off the market or randomly off the card printer, or sold off for Hive on the exchange.
important note Your final daily income will be influenced by factors like crime or taxes.

HIVE reward pool: 50% Hive from minting random cards goes to HIVE pool, 1% of that is distributed daily based on top400 ranking by population

Buy / Trade

You can buy random cards from the game, one card cost 4 HIVE or 800 SIM tokens.
You can also buy or sell cards on the market. Selling has a 5% fee which is deducted from the amount you receive.

Homeless / Immigrants

There is a 2%-30% chance based on popularity to receive Homeless / Immigrants card each day:

10 or more popularity is required to receive free citizens

Crime

Crime is in-game random event that happen every 24h with probability based on number of people that live in your city and number of homeless and immigrants. ** Crime probability is refreshed every 24h during daily rewards distribution**

Buildings like Court, Police Station, Gym, and Cinema reduces probability for crime. Police station and Court's effect on crime is 5x better than Gym and Cinema.

Loading

Loading is a function in dCity that stacks certain cards inside other buildings. When a card is loaded into a building, the effects of the loaded card on the city (like population, education, popularity, etc) disappear and the effect of the loaded building on the city changes.

A building can be unloaded by a player at any time.

This feature works on 5 buildings:

  • Prison: Capacity 50, loading Criminal citizens, +1 income for each
  • Warehouse Capacity: 50, loading Dust, +1 income for each
  • SpaceSIM Company: Capacity 50, Scientist/Scientists, +1 income for each card
  • Construction Company: Capacity 20, Hard Worker, +2 income for each
  • Ad Agency: Capacity 10, Artist/Artists, +0.2 income for each card

Example:

Loading 20 Scientist cards into the SpaceSIM Company will remove the effects of the 20 Scientist cards (20 population, 20 education) but will increase the income from the SpaceSIM Company by 20.

The net change on the city would be -20 population, -20 education, +20 income.

Government & Taxes

SIM power is calculated from average 30 days SIM holdings. It is used to vote on president and lobbying.

Income tax

  • Income tax based on the average SIM token price over the last 3 days, when the price goes down, this tax should go up and decrease inflation and vice versa when the token price going up.

dCITY President

Players can elect a president using their SIM power, each term lasts 14 days.

The President can influence some stats by adjusting taxes:

  • Police tax: 1% of SIM income, Police Station work 4x better
  • Education tax: 5% of SIM income, 10% Education boost
  • Art tax: 5% of SIM income, 10% Creativity boost
  • War tax: 10% of SIM income, 80% of that tax goes to owners of war shares(Military Industry)
  • Eco tax: 5% of SIM income, boost income on Wind Turbines(+1) and Solar Plants(+2)
  • Jobs tax: 5% of SIM income, double the effect of the Job Agency(6%)
  • Basic tax: 1-20% of SIM income, The President can use it to reduce SIM inflation.

Lobbying

You can use your SIM power to influence the game on few different levels
You have 4 options to vote on:

  • bonus income to Hive Sign, max effect +4
  • bonus income to Law Firm, max effect +4
  • increased War Tax, max effect +10%
  • Holding Rewards, max 100 HIVE daily

You can divide your SIM power between these options.

The final lobby effect will be determined by the share of SIM POWER voting on each option.

War Shares

President or SIM holders set a War Tax. 80% of War tax is going back to players having military related buildings(War Shares):

Each Military Industrail Complex gives you 1 War Share.
Each Military Base gives you 2 War Shares.
Each Drone Factory (combined building) gives you 10 War Shares.

Technology

Technology cards can be used to gain certain boosts to your city. Anyone holding the card gets the boost, but if you'd like to be able to discover the technology you need to unlock it.

To be able to discover technology, a player needs to unlock it first in the Tech-Tree.
Players can unlock one technology every 36 hours and can reset this cooldown for 900 SIM.
Technologies are grouped into 6 branches, collecting all five technologies from one branch gives the player a 1% bonus to population

Reminder:
Unlocking a technology doesn’t give you the actual technology card and bonus. Instead, it makes you eligible to discover that technology. Discovery happens every 24 hours at 1800 UTC - the probability for discovery is calculated from education: 40 education = 1% chance with a max cap of 25%. When discovering technology, the player will receive the actual random technology card with the associated bonus.
