    Newb advice: get the 666 and 0 population achievements early. I was lucky (relatively) and only had to count down from 17k population,compared to others. Use a combo of taxis/buses and helping townspeople that walk around to help you reach exactly 666.

    Do the "I don't need this territory" 3x3 achieve earlier than later when purchasing land is cheap, or do it with the Eiffel Tower quest.

    Don't rush to build every production building that unlocks right away. It's tempting because you want that shiny new building but chances are it'll just end up sitting there because you have no trucks, no space in the warehouse or you didn't make enough farms, etc to actually feed it. Build that extra farm or ranch instead. You'll be grateful later. I personally have 4 farms, 2 mills, 2 ranches, etc - more early game production to help feed the late game buildings.

    My economy revolves around feeding my sweet waffle cafe. You can check out my earlier post if interested. I'm only level 34 and make about $250k a day. But your mileage may vary depending on what buildings you have and how much you play. My highest production building built is furniture factory. There are 4 production buildings I've unlocked but never built. On the other hand I have 2 warehouses (60 slots) and 70 trucks so my buildings are always running, even when I sleep.

    And lastly, make a "gaming" twitter and Facebook account for those related achieves. Your friends will thank you for not spamming them with big business tweets and posts all day long. Also nets you free cash from those "visit facebook" quests.

    Sorry for the long post. Hope it helps. If you're like me and don't buy online cash, every little bit helps.

    You can also just hit cancel on the Facebook and Twitter post- still counts as a "post". That's what I've done and I've received both twitter and FB achievements. I set my FB account to not allow posts or photos from the game so the same idea works for the snapshot photo tasks.

    88k is now 80k. Key for me is to remove the roads around my housing. Thereby a stray hit does not grow back the population. I also stuffed my building inventory so I don't accidentally put an industrial building there that I can't put back because population too low.

    Under the settings icon is a toolbar that allows you to turn off the blue people icon...I'm not sure but maybe that will also help from adding more people. I'm too far into my city for those achievements wish I knew about it earlier!

    The 500 energy is the energy from the energy bar. You will get that easy enough but the newsletters are a pain. I had days without getting one. Just need 1 more and it is taking a bit to get it. Good luck.

    @uberjuicey - those are good tips, wish I had them when I started.

    Thanks to everyone for contributing to this thread, it's been a good resource. I had a couple of questions.

    Has anyone purchased the Sombrero Restaurant? Its really expensive, but 9920gp in 15 minutes looks really good, but I want to know what the inputs are. I am not really doing anything with social media, etc at the moment and I don't want to spend any money on the game either, so my city credits are very limited and don't want to waste them.

    Also, how do you buy the buildings that pop up in the blog? I can't find them anywhere on the app, but I could be in the wrong place.

    Look on the right hand of your screen for those buildings. Today the perfume shop is above the bundle of dollars.
    I bought the Waffle House when it was on a sale instead of the sombrero place and the $9000+ every 15 minutes changed the game for me. If you can afford the building, get it!
