In-Game Text


"No one ever doubted the skills of our great people, but when we lack the workforce or specialists, we reluctantly consort to immigrants. On the other hand, be sure that your own people don't embrace decadent foreign influences too much to abandon you."


"Lets you manage who goes in and out of the island."


Place when needed along a road at any convenient location it will fit; once built check that you are properly credited for the bonus. The building is generally neutral for beauty with no problem issues.
