Yesterday, in Workers and Resources: Soviet Republic, I finally got a hang of the game after two days of constant trial and error. Sure, I may have spent an exorbitant amount of time figuring out how everything works, but the dedication paid off. The Work-Standard and The Third Place were helpful in this regard.
Three Soviet towns have been established. Two are mining towns (iron, coal, and uranium), the other for crude oil extraction. One of the towns also specialize in meatpacking, while another is preparing to develop sawmills and lumber production. A television station and radio station are under construction, but its effectiveness is less than subpar because not everyone has a radio or television set. Nobody has computers and few have automobiles, but that will change in the next post.
I also got a basic railway system set up, so they are connected to each other, the rest of the Soviet Union, the Eastern and Western Bloc countries. It could have been better implemented with additional rail junctions to facilitate more trains, some farms, and perhaps another town or two.
I have yet to figure out how to get other Industries up and running. The ones which I am looking into are Asphalt, Bricks, Alcohol, Gravel (for cement and concrete production), Chemicals (prerequisite for textiles and garments), and uranium enrichment (for export only; nuclear energy is too expensive at the moment). For those interested, here is a flow chart:
At some point in the near future, I would like to post photos of my handiwork on The Fourth Estate. I think people will appreciate the effort I had put into this current rendition for the past day now.
