Tutorial - School is important!

After some changes in the game where specialists changed from being trained in their respective buildings to being trained in the school the school became immensely important for every town big or small.

The school works a lot like the town hall with the difference that you train specialists (doctors, cooks, hookers, etc.) instead of unskilled workers (normal citizens). It takes the school 24h to train a specialist so you should plan in advance and be able to see when you need one. (Like everything else in cashtowns ;))
Cashtowns school where
Nice drawing eh?

When should I build it?
I would suggest to build it after you have build the market and upgraded your first three houses to level 2. This is when you will need a Police station and then also a Police officer which you can train in the school.

Where should I build it?
You will need influence from other administrative buildings like the Police station to upgrade it so I would suggest building your first school here. (Look at image)

In the image you can also see that I have built a market and upgraded my three bottom buildings to level 2.

What you can do at each level:

  • Level 1: Train Policeman and fireman
  • Level 2: Priest and doctor
  • Level 3: Cook and hooker
  • Level 4: Casino worker and banker
  • Level 5: Teacher

Upgrade costs and influence required:
  • Level 1: Access to road and 15 wood
  • Level 2: 50 wood, 25 stone + influence of a Police station and access to Q2 road
  • Level 3: 75 wood, 50 stone + influence of a police station and a firehall and access to Q3 road
  • Level 4: 100 wood, 75 stone, 25 iron + influence area of a police station, a firehall and a hospital and have access to Q4 road
  • Level 5: 125 wood, 100 stone, 50 iron, 25 clay + influence of a police station, a firehall , a hospital and a restaurant and have access to a Q5 road.
