In-Game Text


"When you get rich, famous, obnoxious, and your behind grows in size, you usually buy a yacht. Then you have the perfect opportunity to meet other fat, vulgar parvenus and while you won't find any love there, at least you can hope for some acceptance."


"The Marina is an attraction for wealthier tourists."


Place on high Beauty shoreline. Consider placing Gardens and other beauty objects around it. Use a Police Station to knock down crime generated, alternately a Guard Station, but not too close.
