How-To Upgrade the Starter and Pro Kits
The City-Building Kit for Unity has three versions; the Starter, Pro, and Complete Kits. Each one building up can provide everything you need to develop game from city building social games to city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) and tower defense games. Each version building up includes more and more features and capabilities to further expand your game developments. So you can begin with the Starter Kit and already make clone games like Farmville, Restaurant Story, and City Island. Another option for you is to start with the Pro Kit and you can include games like Clash of Clans, Castle Clash, and The Tribez to your developments. Or if you wanted to go all out and get everything included in one shot, the Complete Kit expands further and allows for tower defense games like Defender II and Fantasy II Defense games to be made.Watch DemoPlay Demo App

City Building Kit Feature Highlights
One of the most popular methods for a developer to make money with their apps and games is to make it a free game and include In-App Purchases (IAP). The City-Building Kit for Unity has this feature already included as a demo. The demo includes four different items that can be purchased using real money. This demo can be edited to feature everything your city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) game(s) want to sell for real money. For examples, in Clash of Clans you can buy gems for real money. In Cityville, you can buy energy for real money. In the included demo, you can buy any resource for real money. These are just some examples as to what can be setup in your games while using the City-Building Kit.
Kinetic Mobile Gestures
The Complete version of the City-Building Kit for Unity comes with two types of gesture controls built in and ready for you to use. These are the Developer controls and Player controls. These are optimized for great user experiences on mobile devices but are known to work well when developing and/or playing on desktop systems. Touch controls is the basic name of it and allows for zooming in and out, moving the map, and moving buildings and units as needed as found in top games like Clash of Clans and Cityville. The aim for the City-Building Kit was to provide easy to use, friendly, and familiar controls for both players and developers.
City-Building Kit Comparisons
Each of the City-Building Kit versions has a foundation built up higher and higher with more and more capabilities for each higher version beginning at the Starter Kit. So depending on your goal for game developing, you can decide which version best suits your needs as a developer. Each version of the City-Building Kit is ready to make city building games at the minimum up to city building + Real Time Strategy(RTS) games and even tower defense games at the maximum with all the features and some unique features ready to be used right out of the box. Below is a direct comparison between each version of the City-Building Kit for Unity. Do note that the one true common across all versions is the fact that you can edit everything.
Multi-Player Battle Cheats
As a developer, testing your city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) game(s) becomes all too important. While certain aspects of your game are being built such as the battle modes, you’d want to test them quite heavily. With the City-Building Kit for Unity, testing becomes a lot easier with the included multi-player battle cheats (developer cheats). Not only does this help you with battle testing, it can also be setup as a type of reward, for example, for players that use your In-App Purchases.
Non Playing Characters (NPCs) are the units your players interact with for various purposes such as quests, providing information, or just wandering animated decorations. When you check a game such as Cityville, the NPCs are roaming all over the place. In a game such as Clash of Clans, the NPC gives the opening (first time) tutorial. The City-Building Kit comes with a demo builder NPC for you to edit and use in your own game(s). Its main purpose is for you to learn exactly how NPCs work and can be used in your game(s).
The City-Building Kit for Unity has the ability to deploy your city building + Real Time Strategy (RTS) game(s) to many operating systems (OS)/ platforms. Since the City-Building Kit is made for Unity developers, any platform that Unity can deploy to, the City-Building Kit can deploy to it too. Going cross platform with the game(s) you develop using the City-Building Kit won’t take much of anything for extra effort. It’s all included right out of the boxes of both the City-Building Kit and Unity.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it work with Unity 5? Why do I still need NGUI/2DTK?
Yes, we support Unity 5 however the UI/2D functions expanding the kit are far more advanced than Unity 5's UI/2D features currently provide. You'll need the NGUI and 2D Toolkit assets which are further developed.
