Construction of buildings
Construction of buildings takes some time. Upon completion of a construction open the building by tapping the "cut the ribbon" button.There are 4 main types of buildings in Aquapolis: residential, production, attractions, decorations.
Residential buildings bring regular income in the form of silver coins and inventory items. Residential buildings can be upgraded. An upgraded building brings more income and new collection items. When you collect income, residential buildings lose some of their happiness points that can be restored by building attractions.
What are the smiles above residential buildings?
The smiles indicate your residents' level of happiness. If happiness drops to zero, the building stops bringing income. Buildings with 100% happiness level bring more income than usual. To raise the happiness level, build an attraction close to residential houses.
Attractions create happiness surplus regularly, which is displayed as an icon with happy smiles. To raise happiness level you should build an attraction close to residential houses and collect the happiness surplus. The attraction building's area of influence is highlighted during its construction.
What are production buildings for?
These buildings produce various products. Sometimes production can be stopped due to a breakdown. A building breakdown is displayed as a small window with an exclamation mark. To resume production, you must first fix the building using your inventory items.
Also you can ask your friends to help you repair the building. Tap the broken production and choose "Ask for help" to send your friends a help request.
Your friends can help you fix any production building, but only one at a time. If you've started repairing a building and then you change your mind, choose another damaged production building and touch Confirm button. Warning! You will lose any help accepted before as you shift the repairs task onto another production building.
How do I find inventory items?
You can obtain various inventory items while collecting profit from residential buildings, as well as constructing and upgrading them. Construction and upgrading has 100 per cent probability of yielding inventory items, while collecting profit does not always give them.

What are decorations for?
Decorations both make the underwater city more beautiful and raise ecology level.
What is ecology level?
Every production building you construct lowers ecology level. If you let ecology level drop below zero, you'll start seeing disgusting heaps of garbage appearing around the city. When ecology level is above zero, underwater flowers grow in the city outskirts. Gathering flowers brings you silver coins. At the same time, removing the garbage will cost you several silver coins.
All the products you make will be stored at the warehouse. Initially the warehouse can store 10 products. If the number of products exceeds available storage space, you can sell them. To increase available storage space, expand the warehouse.
