 Main Menu
On the main menu, there are six options.
Build a City This option allows you to make a new city, or continue one you have already made. There are 20 different geographical city terrains you can chose from if you choose to make a new city. Depending on the location you pick, you can start off with either $100,000 (basic), $50,000 (easy), $20,000 (normal), or $10,000 (hard).
Post Office This option allows you to exchange data with other players.
Museum This option lets you look at all the types of buildings you can have in the game. Under Standard Collection, you see all the normal buildings and different things that can take up a spot of land, that are able to be built. Under Landmark Collection, you can enter passwords to unlock real-life buildings that you can place in your city. They are free, and don't add anything to the game (like boosted land value), they are only something neat to have.
Options Here you can change your settings: disaster difficulty, action events, and volume.
Tutorial In the tutorial option you can go through 15 different tutorials that will help you learn how to play the game.
