Character Mike (Engineer)
"Restore the Ghost Town: build a Gold Mining Company and a Gold Mine. Rebuild the Wind Turbines System and the Water Station to provide your gold mining operations with water and energy. Build a Gold Refinery. Become a Gold Tycoon!"

"Not far from Megapolis, in the desert, there used to be a small mining town. The town was abandoned over a hundred years ago. No one lives there now, the buildings are in ruins and only the wind mournfully whistles through the remains of the homes..."

"The residents beg the mayor: restore the ghost town!"

"We need to restore the ghost town and make it modern, stylish and comfortable to live and work in. Megapolis designers have already made plans to reconstruct the old buildings. And the geologists claim there's gold to be found in this area!"


Depending on how one plays the game, this quest may require approximately Megabucks sm total (for assets) and Coin sm (for building and foundation purchases) to complete fully.

Stage 1 - Forgotten Town

I found some old documents. They say that there used to be a mine not far from Megapolis, and around it - a small town.
