I almost consider this DLC to be cheating. It creates quite a few jobs and almost isle has a few places where they can be placed. They either increase your bottom line by shipping it out or they help increase the speed of building stuff. This is usually one of the first buildings I build because it provides a good income right away.

The only reason the developers thought that a cement factory DLC would be popular is because the base game is notoriously slow at construction unless you hire excessive numbers of builders. They should've apologised and released a free patch rather than an extortionately priced DLC to fix a design flaw that they should've spotted during testing.

Quick-Dry Cement is a third tiny DLC for this Tropico. Hm, I wouldn't be surprised if the first three were planned to be made right even before game was finished.

The mission idea is interesting. You get money for building houses and you have to build a lot of them, even limiting quick-build option a bit and then threatening you with disaster. But it very quickly becomes a no-brainer, you don't even have to care about building your own economy, and soon it ends before it even begins. Really, I expected it to go on for quite a while, I only had to spam up with houses just a small bit of island. Maybe anymore of those would have made game lag too much, it's not sim-city.
Anyway, mission isn't much, most people like this DLC for building.

Quick-Dry Cement factory is actually quite powerful early game building. It both exports cement and it speeds up construction. Some call it almost overpowered. Just remember that you will need high-school workers for this.

The new building which comes with the DLC, Cement Factory, is a very useful addition to the game. This building practically speeds up the construction of new buildings significantly. Definitely well worth the money.

Unless you have a lot of in-game money, this is needed for building speed. I got it on sale, so it wasn't too bad of a price. I loosely reccomend.

Tropico 4: Quick-dry Cement DLC Review

Quick-dry Cement is the third DLC for Tropico 4. This DLC contains one outfit for your avatar, one new building, one new extra mission, one new trait, and some decorations.

The extra mission is "Gods of Economy". You will start by doing objectives related to housing. Later, the gods on the island will be angry at your economic policy. So, if you have more $50000 for three consecutive months, the Volcano God will be angry and a disaster will occur. So you will need to keep the treasury under $50000. And later in the mission, every two years, there will be a tornado attack from the Wind God as a sign of protest. You will receive a lot of money every year from each house on the island and he UN. And to make it more challenging, the quick-build option will be limited. For every 5 tourist that comes to the island, you will receive 1 quick-build. It took me a few hours to complete this mission as I spend most of the mission building my economy because I didn't expect that the mission will end too soon. It's a fairly difficult mission in my opinion.

The new building is the cement factory. I find this building very useful as it increases the construction speed on the island, and it doesn't need any raw materials for production. The cement factory doesn't need blueprints or electricity as well. This could be a good early game building, but it will take a lot of space. The constructor trait is also very useful as well, as it gives a free cement factory and at 5 stars, it gives builders +50% faster skill gain. The free cement factory will give a big impact in the early game. The outfit and decorations are nice to have. Overall, I think Quick-dry Cement is a pretty good DLC as I often use much of its content.
