About This Content

Build the largest city in the Caribbean on an island with constant influx of immigrants. Deal with problems such as unemployment, over-population and food shortages. Use the Conventillo, a cheap residential building that houses many residents using little space. Wear an old-fashioned suit with a monocle, mayoral necklace and use the bureaucrat trait for cheaper residential buildings and more profits from the “building permit” edict.

Key Features:

  • New building: Conventillo (housing quality degrades over time, has to be renovated frequently)
  • New trait: Bureaucrat (cheaper residential buildings, more profits from “building permit” edict)
  • New outfit: Mayor (male avatar)
  • New mission: Megalopolis

Only thing I like about it is the Building Permit edict. Is it worth the price? NO!

Still recommend it if on sale (a massive one) and if you want more swiss bank money.

This DLC comes with a new mission, Megalopolis and a new building, Conventillo. The mission is fun to play but not the new building. The quality of this building degrades over time and makes the game slightly more challenging.

Megalopolis is the 5th tiny stuff DLC and this time it allows content from Modern Times expansion pack into mission. The only tiny DLC that does it, if I remember correctly.

The missions seemed to be fun. You are given points for every working person with home, which means that you will have to deal with mass immigration or you can also get more points by "bribe" (costs money) or doing small side-quests, all under time pressure. At first I thought that it will be a better version of Dry Cement DLC mission, making you build a huge city. As you can expect, my attempt at beating this mission that way failed and I just decided to build your usual strong economy and then just bribe your way to victory.
So nope, still not going to challenge you in a new way.

As for new building, it's Conventillo. A house made of garbage stuff, that was painted to make it look awesome. It has as many slots as Temenents, but it starts with awesome 80+ service quality and then slowly lowers down to be just a bit worse than Temenents. You can repay full price to fix it back. Sadly it costs more than Tenements or Apartament and USSR Development Aid edict doesn't cut down price of this DLC building, making it less of a good choice.

This bad DLC will actively make your game worse. The communist faction will encourage you to build conventillos, a new building which requires constant micromanagement to prevent them falling into disrepair, and if you don't manually fix them (there are no warnings when the quality of the conventillo is dropping) then your citizens will complain about poor housing quality. Avoid buying this and just build apartment blocks instead.
