Ok, so how DO I restart? I'm using iCloud so how do I get rid of my save game? Will I lose my IAP if I do that of the time doubler?

Your IAP is tied to your AppleID, not your save data. If you want to start over, disable iCloud, delete the game, reinstall the game say NO to iCloud, then tap on the Town Hall building and tap the gear icon and select the "Restore Purchases" option at the bottom to get your Double Time IAP back.

Scary to hear about missing utopium. I havent encountered anything like that yet.

I also really want something that instantly clicks all the electric symbols. I think we should have a nuclear plant or something that gives us an option to "give electricity to all business" after paying a one time utopium fee

I think something that useful/time saving should be a function that costs 1u per use. As it really is just a luxury, and mostly only useful when you first come back to your town, or for those who only check in every couple of hours.

Tried this, it doesn't give me the option to say NO to iCloud, and then restores my iCloud save.

I thought that I may using it unintentually, but I honestly don't know how it could be. I'm pretty sure I never click any speed ups, I never thought any trees yet, and I read every price tags before I build them.

Also, why is the best payout building?
The expansion for land is getting really costly, and I'm trying to increase my flow if incoming cash. I'm doing police station and arcade, is anything else better than these. I haven't upgraded any buildings pass level 1 yet.

Here is a post that I made a while ago explaining 3 different types of "top earning" buildings

*These numbers are assuming that you have both a bank and the Double Time IAP*

Building / CPS / Work Time / Full Staff / Land Needed

City Square - 208 CPS - 10 Minutes - 6 workers - 4 land
University - 20 CPS - 2 Hours - 3 workers - 3 land
Tavern - 72 CPS - 10 Minutes - 5 workers - 1 land

Now as you can see there are pros and cons to each example in this list, and I am going to demonstrate this by calculating different categories.

1) CPS per land space

City Square: 208/4 = 52
University: 20/3 = 6.66
Tavern: 72/1 = 72

Winner: Tavern


2) Total coins per tap

City Square: 208*600 = 124800
University: 20*7200 = 144000
Tavern: 72*600 = 43200

Winner: University


3)Average coins per worker

City Square: 208/6 = 34.66
University: 20/3 = 6.66
Tavern: 72/5 = 14.4

Winner: City Square


As you can see, depending on your play style (set and forget/actively play), how important land space is to you (including housing for workers), and how much utopium you spend on housing for workers, each building is better at something.

If you play constantly for long periods of time and want to conserve land then the Tavern is probably the best choice.

If you only check on your town every so often then the University is probably a better choice for you.

If land isn't an issue, but spending utopium for housing is, then the City Square will earn you the most CPS per worker.

Yea it is just a luxury but I guess so is halving down your heart bar, and those are one time fees. 1u per use almost seems not worth it. I'd like an initial cost - about 30-50u, and then have it on a cooldown timer so that you can only use it every few hours. This way you can't rely on it every single time you log in, and it'll mostly be useful for those times when you wake up.

Yea that's really strange. What I'd suggest is to take a picture before you sleep, and then compare in the morning. If there's a strange loss, take another and send both to the devs.

As for most money, I'm not too sure. I haven't really been min-maxing at all as I've cared more about the layout of my city haha. I'm sure if you read back a lot of people have talked about that.
