When a developer sees so many city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) games currently available and wants to learn how to make one or more of their own, Unity is one of the main choices for developing such Clash of Clans clone games. But included with trying to make your own city building + RTS game comes with a heavy learning time. It takes time to figure out how In-App Purchases, path finding, AI, movement control, resource management, animations, displays, battle situations, and many other parts of game development work.
How does the City-Building Kit help me make a Clash of Clans or other game type clone?
The kit itself is loaded with everything you need to make your city building, strategy, or any combination of game type you want right from the start. However, the City-Building Kit doesn’t leave you with a bigger learning time. There’s no shortage of information for the City-Building Kit. Documentation and example tutorials are both included with the City-Building Kit.Watch DemoPlay Demo App

How do the documentation and example tutorials help reduce my learning time?
They help in a couple of ways which include:
- Fully editable source code. The example tutorials that come with the City-Building Kit can be edited and used all you like in your game(s). The idea being is to provide you with a way to learn how the kit works while you’re actually making your game in the process. This results in a double time saver. You could have a fully working game that’s ready to deploy not long after using the kit to learn how the kit works and how to make the game.
- Documentation. Any game developer, beginner to expert, can run into questions that they can’t immediately answer. The typical solutions are to either search for an answer or post the question(s) in a forum. The included documentation has all the information you need to make a city building + RTS game right out of the box. This saves you plenty of time because you don’t have to search for answers or wait for replies.
The City-Building Kit documentation and example tutorials were made to leave you with more games for your users rather than more questions from you. Even still, support for the kit is included via questions to the developers. So searching for a place to ask and get answers won’t take long.Watch the Strategy Kit

City Building Kit Feature Highlights
Documented Source Code
When using the City-Building Kit for Unity to develop city builder + Real Time Strategy (RTS) games, there’s no shortage of help included. You can send a message/question to the developers and/or check out the included documentation tutorials. But to go further in helping you make a Clash of Clans clone game you want, fully documented source code is also included. The 50+ C# scripts and everything else that comes with the City-Building Kit is well commented. The goal is to help you develop your city building + RTS game(s) faster rather than be stuck with questions.
When it comes to a matter of performance, the City-Building Kit excels in multiple ways. Take the example games of Clash of Clans, Cityville, and The Tribez. Anyone can tell you that these games will run better on stronger/high end devices. What if your game runs better on these types of devices and devices with not so high end specifications?
Expansion: Free Art and Sound Effects
The City-Building Kit for Unity allows for the creation of city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) games. Among many features, scripts, and demos, free artwork and sound effects come with the kit for use in your city building + RTS game(s). Each piece of art can be edited and used in your game and the same goes for each sound effect. All this is already included in the City-Building Kit. But that was only the start. With the use of the Unity assets store, you can find a large variety of art and sound assets that are completely free for you to use in your games and can also be edited as needed.
Expansion: In-Game Chat
While playing your multi-player city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) game(s), players would want to be able to talk to each other. Meeting, chatting, trash talk, and sharing game tips with each other are the typical cases. The City-Building Kit for Unity also allows for this. However, it’s done with the use of expansions. The assets store is loaded with mountains of expansions you can use directly with the City-Building Kit. In-game chatting systems are also included. There are many that can be used. So take a look at the assets store and find a solution that best fits your city building + RTS needs.
One of the more popular features to many games like Clash of Clans, Castle Clash, Defender II, and other RPG and city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) games is the use of leaderboards. The City-Building Kit for Unity allows for the use of leaderboards in your city building + RTS game(s) with the use of expansions (assets). The Unity asset store has a wide range of leaderboard assets for any developer to include in their game(s). The main concern is simply picking one that offers the features you deem as right for your game developments. Just remember that the City-Building Kit can deploy your game(s) to platforms just the same as Unity can. Leaderboard assets didn’t stop at just mobile device uses.
Expansion: Admob, iAd, MoPub Mobile Ads
The City-Building Kit for Unity allows you to make city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) games like Clash of Clans, The Tribez, Farmville, Cityville, and The Simpsons Tapped Out. However, advertising your game(s) is still a concern. The downside is that you have to figure out a method or multiple methods to use to let players know your game even exists. The upside is that you’re still covered. The City-Building Kit is made for Unity developers. With it, the use of the asset store provides advertising assets. These can easily be included into your city building + RTS game(s). Even though the majority of these assets are used in games meant for mobile devices, they can also be used on games meant for other platforms.
