1. Produce items for an assignment before starting it
For many of the Contest of Mayors assignments, you’ll need to produce and collect a certain number of items (either raw materials or processed goods) within a certain time limit. To give yourself a head start for such assignments, start producing items you need to collect for them before you claim the assignments. Then you’ll already have required items ready to collect as soon as you claim an assignment without having to wait around for their production to complete.
2. Save Speed-Up Tokens for Contest of Mayors
When you’ve unlocked Speed-Up Tokens, make the most of them during Contest of Mayors competitions. Speed-Up Tokens enable you to greatly accelerate item production speed. Those tokens can be invaluable for contest assignments in which you need to produce and collect a certain number of items. If you save your tokens for Contest of Mayors, you’ll be able to complete more item production assignments more quickly. Furthermore, all Contest of Mayors prizes will give you some tokens to replace the ones you’ve used up during the competitions.
3. Save Tax for Simoleon Assignments
For Contest of Mayors simoleon assignments, you’ll need to collect a certain amount of Simoleons. Those are actually among the easier assignments to complete when you save tax for them. Wait about a day or so for your city’s tax total to amass. Then claim a simoleon contest just assignment before you collect the tax. When you collect the tax, you might gather 10,000+ in Simoleons after a day has passed since your last collection. Thereafter, you might only need to amass a few thousand more Simoleons to complete the contest.
4. Get rid of assignments you don’t want to claim
Some assignments are somewhat easier to complete than others in Contest of Mayors. To get easier assignments for yourself, claim the harder ones you don’t want to do and then cancel them. You’ll receive replacement assignments for the ones you cancel. Although you can only claim a finite number of assignments (up to 55 in Megapolis League), you can still claim plenty of them. Even if you do run out of assignments, you can always utilize golden tickets to get more.
5. Build as many factories as you can
Factories are crucial to Contest of Mayors competitions because many of the assignments are production ones. The more factory slots you have, the faster you can produce raw materials for assignments. So, make sure you build as many factories as you can in your city. Build the biggest and best factories that will give you the most production slots. Then you’ll be able to complete raw material production assignments somewhat quicker.
6. Keep some SimCash Handy for Contest of Mayors
SimCash can come in handy for Contest of Mayors. You can invest your SimCash to hurry the production of items. Doing so can ensure you complete production assignments you might otherwise not have sufficient time to finish. Therefore, you can amass more plumbob points, and maybe even win bigger prizes, by saving a bit of SimCash for hurrying production during Contest of Mayors contests.
