|Objective: Become WeedCity’s most powerful Mobster : manage everything from production to sale. Make a fortune and take control of the biggest companies. |
Starting up at WeedCity: You’ll start with an indoor crop of 5 plants and 4000$. You can either start by buying the necessary equipment to get your production going, which will leave you with little cash or start by buying some gear and selling it to increase your initial capital. You can also gamble : sports betting, lottery, casino, poker… It is pointless to buy the equipment for 50 plants straight away if your production capacity doesn’t exceed 5 plants. On the other hand, reading the FAQ entirely is highly recommended.
MY ACCOUNT :
Reputation : Your reputation increases when you make public sales, every time a plant is produced, and also when you recruit a new player… Your reputation determines the quantity of gear you’ll be able to sell per day at the cooperative.
Bust risk (police) : The risk of you getting busted by the cops increases when you sell your gear in public places. The bust risk increases 10% per hour if you are the seller, 5% per hour if you employ a seller or 2% per hour if your seller is accompanied by a lookout. The bust risk must never reach 100%! If you do so, you’ll be fined 30% of your capital with a minimum of 25’000$. The bust risk decreases by 1% every 2 hours when you aren’t selling in public.

There are 5 different types of crops :
Step of vegetation (or growth) and flowering are a little different. The principle is not to fill tanks, it is to set your hydro settings.Are to be set: the water flow, the fertilizer flow, the pH level, and the duration of sunshine. Settings determine the quantity produced. You have to find the right settings to optimize your harvest. Advice and tips will be given to help you find the best settings.
Attention, an improper adjustment can be fatal to your plants. Make sure that your plants are always supplied with water. Careful also not to put too much fertilizer. Regarding the pH, note that below 5 or above 8, nothing will grow even worse.
Finally, be aware of hours of sunshine. Itís the sunshine duration that will determine if your plants are growing or are in flowering.
Last warning, hydro culture has only one room : that means that all your hydro plants are either growing or flowering and have the same flow and ph level settings (and varieties of weed have differents settings). You can not have the two stages simultaneously. So be careful before putting plants in culture.
