What Am I doing Wrong?


Recommended Posts

Here is my nation

What am I doing wrong?

My tax collection is $443,178.96 while my infra bill is $508,830.75 alone!!!

I used to be a part of the Beer, Autos, Ashpalt, Construction, Microchips, Radiation clean up, steel circle, before our iron/gold player got deleted.

Why is my net income negative 60K +??

Thank you for your help

When you lost your marble water trade, you lost the infra reduction in your build that construction gave you, so you are paying regular price for infra.

Getting that trade back should be a high priority for you.

For now, you can get labor camps to pay bills but don't collect taxes with them.

Edit: this guy has bad trades, try to get him: http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_d...ation_ID=328135

Improvement Swap

The basics of Improvement Swapping (as I understand it)

Labor Camps, they decrease your infra costs (50% decrease with 5 camps) but also decrease the amount of money you get in taxes per citizen. So you want to have camps while paying bills, but not when collecting taxes.

So the first thing you need to do is to make sure you have enough money to pay your bills for the duration of owning labor camps (5 days, 10 days, 15 days, 19 days depending on how you want to do it.)

Second trash the 5 'least important' improvements you have (most alliances have some sort of guide as to what order you should buy improvements in). You now replace those 5 improvements with 5 labor camps.

Third, only pay bills for the length of time you've chosen, do not collect taxes.

Finally, at the end of the cycle, trash your labor camps, buy back the original improvements and collect taxes.

I'm not an expert on it so I don't know if 1k infra is a good time to start or not.

Hope that helps you a bit

A good time to start is when the money you make in swapping is enough to pay for re buying the 5 camps.
