Why is this wiki so dead?

Tropico is such a great series, and worse series with smaller fanbases have better wikis than this... what happened? D0UB1EA 20:19, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

-I agree with you D0UB1EA, this is a great series, I have only played 3 and 4 but I love it, and it is a shame that this wiki is so empty. If I knew how to edit these pages skillfully and if my Tropico worked, I would be in thier cleaning it up. --SupremeCommanderGrief 00:18, June 25, 2012 (UTC)SupremeCommanderGriefSupremeCommanderGrief 00:18, June 25, 2012 (UTC) 10:17 AM 26/6/2012

Empty? Well, I tried adding as much content as possible. I even added pages for each individual job! What sort of things are missing?--Conejito 09:12, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
I was talking more so about the "Population" of the wiki, as in why so few people visit and contribute to it compared to say the Fallout or TF2 wikis. Although the missions segment could use some more filling in as half of the Tropico 4 missions have no information apart from thier names. Good job though with the jobs pages.

Ah, that's harder to fix. A wiki is only as popular as its subject matter, and Tropico doesn't have the widespread fame that those other games do. The best we can do is try to get others to play. -- Conejito 12:11, June 27, 2012 (UTC)


I found pages created with the suffix of "(Tropico 3)" so I went along with creating them this way. Would it be better to use a namespace instead? Can probably move pages if necessary.--GentleGiant03 02:26, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Male Issue

I play the Tropico 4, with a sandbox mode.

I use 4~5 industries , with each of them with 2~3 factory, 6 docks with import materials.

So I need more teamster and dock worker.

And one thing bother me, it's that the island is lack of male worker.

About 1000 people, and 50 unemployee, and 30 jobs available. 

I try to fire every male worker at construction office, farm and Ranch.

And it seems not enough.

Is there any solution I could do about it?

Does anybody know hot to make buildings produce? cause i'll admit I think it's really funny to play sandbox unlimited money in Tropico 5 but when I place down buildings f.ex chocolate factory I hire workers put the budget up and buy upgrades but then it says Building is not producing and I cant get it to work can anybody help me please!?
