back


Image The parameter levellink


The parameter level indicates how much passenger’s traffic and postal traffic origins from the building. With the renewal of the buildings through the city, a building with a higher level value is built.

The information in the info window of the building calculates itself as follows:

Building of the Type ind

Base 1 tile   Formula   level value gives
Passengers: = level 20  20
Post: = level / 2  20  10

  


Building of the Type com

Base 1 tile   Formula    level value gives
Passengers: = level 20  20
Post: = level * 2  20  40

  


All the other buildings

Base 1 tile  Formula  level value gives
Passengers: = level 20  20
Post: = level 20  20

 

Buildings that occupy more than one tile the resulting value is multiplied by the number of tiles.

Image The parameter build_timelink


If the value 0 is, the place of interest on the land is built. If the value is bigger than 0, he gives the number of inhabitants with which the place of interest is built in the city.

With monuments and city halls the parameter always gives the number of inhabitants with which the monument or city hall is built.

The parameter determines the passenger’s rate and postal rate field of the building.

Level=1 corresponds to a rate of 0.
