well I have a few hints and tips for you,
well first lets go on with the hints:
-well in stage 3 you have to build a town of entertainement(exemple: movie theater base-ball fields,etc
now for the tips:
-get as many best friends as possible(ex:if your goal is to get more restaurents i recommend you to go to your metropolis mania restaurents and they will sometimes give you restaurents!!!!
On stage 1-5 go to a fruit & Veg place and choose the first thing on the list. It's about $3. Buy as much of them as you can carry and eat them. Do this until you get full strength.
$ a bag:
$12 for a bag that carries 4 items
$30 for a bag that carries 10 items
Total $: $500 - $600
To get a full strength bar quick, find a restaurant named Evan's Savory Pancakes. (Any savory pancake shop will work.) Then, buy the first item, a savory pancake, and buy about $500-$600 dollars worth and your strength bar should be full.
To get max salary move as much people in as possible and solve all of their complaints
