Retail Property Farming Mining Production



Retail
This includes a variation of different shops. These shops can either be rented or purchased. Renting is more expensive but at the start this might be your best option, once you purchased your first shop there will still be monthly maintenance fees payable and failure to pay these in a timely manner will result in foreclosure.

Each shop type comes with a variety of equipment and furniture and it's up to you to decorate your shop and open up for business. Certain buildings when you rent them have pre-configured setups you can simply purchase saving you some time but, that all depends on the size of the shop.

Each shop has a specific way of generating income and when playing with friends they can pitch in and help. Shops can function on their own when you hire employees, but the only way your shop can be restocked or bills can be paid is by doing it yourself. When you leave the shop unattended, employees will slack down and you can expect business to drop by at least 50% On multiplayer servers it helps to employee other players as managers and providing them with certain privileges, again there is always a risk of a player walking away with your stock or emptying out your cash register.

Report criminal activity at your local police station, but when hiring a player it will help if you know the person.

Nursery for plants is seen as the selling point, but you will also have to purchase a huge piece of land to grow the plants that you sell, they cannot be produced in factories and you might have to consider using green houses if you intent to grow plants during winter months. The nursery have a crafting option if you split your shop into selling not only plants but also flowers for special occasions like birthdays, as soon as you create a bouquet the lifespan of that bouquet will run out within days, so you need to make a fresh bouquet each day according to what you have sold and it can become tricky.
