Skylines (Best Methods) – FandomSpot

Whether it’s got you in the red from consistently negative cash flow or some bad decisions involving loans and overspending, here are some of the best things you can try to save your economy in Cities: Skylines.

  • Temporary tax extension
  • increase taxes slightly
  • Decrease the budget for services
  • Deactivation of some buildings and services

Method #1: Temporarily skipping taxes

This “hack” works by giving you a significant increase in tax revenue for a short period of time.

By default, the taxes for your RICO zones (residential, industrial, commercial and office zones) are 9%; Most of the time, it’s a good idea to keep your tax rates fairly close, as your citizens will get dissatisfied and leave if the taxes are too high.

However, this negative effect does not occur immediately. You can take advantage of the time between the tax increase and retirement.

Go to the Economy section (the cash icon in the menu) and then click on the Taxes tab. Drag the sliders all the way to the right so that all zone types are at 29%.

Go to the economy panel to get your taxes all the way up for a short time. / Cities: Skylines

Pretty soon, you’ll start to see an increase in your income (which should be enough to get your weekly balance green unless you’re grossly over budget).

While your taxes are maxed out, keep an eye on your weekly population change indicator. Once you see it reaching zero or going negative, it’s time to bring your taxes back down to a more reasonable 9-10%.

Once your population change is positive again, you can flush and repeat as needed.

Method #2: Moderately increase taxes

After performing the above tax trick, instead of bringing it back down to the standard 9%, you might consider a modest long-term tax increase.

Most cities should get by with a tax rate of around 12%.

Increase by 1% for each 9% to be safe. Wait a while to see if your population stops growing or if people are complaining about high taxes before you start gaining weight again.

Method #3: Cut the budget for services

Negative weekly income is often due to overspending on services, so it’s a good idea to see if there are things you can cut back.

Take for example if you have decided to use a coal fired power plant as your first source of energy.

Very early in the game, you won’t need anywhere near the 40MW that the coal plant can produce.

You can safely drop the budget for it; This reduces the plant’s performance, but you still have enough energy to power your city.

As your population grows, you can simply increase the budget as needed to increase power output again.

Go to the
Go to the “Budget” tab in the “Economy” section, then use the sliders for the specific service you want to customize.

You can keep an eye on your electricity, water and sewage availability by opening the info panel. / Cities: Skylines
You can keep an eye on your electricity, water and sewage availability by opening the info panel.

You can do the same for other services. Lowering the water budget reduces water and sewage capacity, while lowering the garbage budget reduces the number of garbage trucks available.

Method #4: Disable some buildings and services

Apart from reducing the budget, in some cases it can be worthwhile to switch off certain services that are too expensive to maintain for the time being.

A good example of this is public transport: services like subways can be expensive to run, especially if you have a fairly large network.

You can disable individual transit buildings by clicking on each building and toggling the on/off switch. / Cities: Skylines
You can disable individual transit buildings by clicking on each building and toggling the on/off switch.

Temporarily shutting down public transport may make some of your citizens unhappy, but generally shouldn’t have any major consequences (unless you have serious traffic problems).

Other buildings to shut down in the meantime are parks and recreational facilities, and non-essential health buildings (e.g., yoga garden, community pool, and children’s health center).
