Play in single player against AI or in multiplayer with other players. Build at least one of each building to have a functioning economy and connect everything to the powerline grid, road grid, and crude oil pipeline grid. Hold and drag over the build buttons in the bottom right corner to find out more about the buildings. To place a building, click on the building button and click and drag on the map where you want to place it. For conduits (roads, powerlines, crude oil pipelines), make sure to hold on where you want to start the placement of the tiles and drag to where you want to end the line of tiles. Powerlines and crude oil pipelines must be placed near roads for construction materials to be transported to them.
Make sure to build enough trucks to transport resources between buildings. To build trucks, click on any player’s factory and click "Buy Truck" for however many trucks are needed.
If all players click on "fast forward" the game will run at maximum speed. If any of the players click pause, the game will be paused until that player clicks play speed or fast forward.
