The Airport City Game - The Permanent On Screen Display Counters And The Temporary On Screen Display Icons Explained (v8.8.15)

The Airport City Game - The Permanent On Screen Display Counters And The Temporary On Screen Display Icons Explained
This user guide is for those of you who are new to the game of Airport City and have only just started playing your game. Because you are relatiely new to the game, you will be in the early stages of exploring your game, and that of the features on display on your game screen. It will be a good idea for you to familierize yourself with each of the display counter and radar display icon functions.

This user guide will introduce you to the display counters and radars displays, which will provide you with important information, essential to your long term game. The counters and radars will provide you with information on the following subjects, Game Level and Experience, Star Skills, City Population, City Electricity, Fuel For Planes, Fuel For Helicopters, Passengers For Planes, Tourists For Helicopters, Gold Coins, Green Notes, Guest Planes, Plane and Helicopter, Bonuses. These will be on permanent display across the entire top row of your game screen (from left to right) and on the right hand side of your screen (from the top down). There will also be a number of radar icons which will be on temporary display, Space Program, Land Expansion Sale, Special Events, Special Events First Sales, Special Events Second Sales, Special Events Buildings For Sale, Urban Green Event, Mystery Metro Station, Mystery City Square, Discount Supersale, Massive Sale, Special Game Gifts, Mystery Buildings (One and Two) and Airship Store. You will only be able to access them one at a time.

It will be important you closely monitor the City Population, City Electricity, Fuel For Planes, Fuel For Helicopters, Passengers For Planes and Tourists For Helicopters, counters very carefully, as you grow and develop your game. It is easy to overlook them during long term game play, and reach their capacity limits (the counters are small in size and difficult to read). It will be wise of you to increase the six counters capacities, before you reach each of their limits. If you fail to do so, it will impact on your game and you will not be able to proceed until you increase their capacities, which will take you time. It is always best to be pro-active when it comes to these aspects of your game.

I have included a selection of screenshot images, which will help to make things clear, as you read through the user guide. The counters will not show any figures, the reason for this is because each set of counter figures will be unique, from forum member to forum member. The set of counter figures will be determined by many aspects of your game.
