    • The sim city guides: New Zealand (WW3)

      New

      Last one for WW3 for a while.

      Day 1:
      1. Research. New Zealand is an island nation, with two different portions. It has a European Doctrine, so Strike Fighters and Corvettes can make for a good start. Alternatives include Motorized Infantry or ASF.
      2. Buildings. New Zealand is a bit tricky. Being in two different islands, and sim city forcing you to have to move stuff around, you need air bases in both islands. Hence, Dunedin should have your Air Base, Auckland will have the Army Base. Taurunga and Christchurch will have the Naval Bases.
      Little note, Auckland is also a potential option for an Air Base. Although it doesn't offer the same freedom of movement as Dunedin, it is a city that allows your fighters capability of air strikes at Fiji, which will appeal to some of you who like taking AI countries.
      3. Diplomacy. This is as one-dimensional as Canada. Send the peace offer to Australia. Take Fiji in the meantime.

      If Australia rejects, quit the game.
      If Australia accepts, then sim city.

      Day 2:
      - Research Frigates
      - Research Mechanized Infantry
      - Research Tank Destroyers
      - Build Naval Base lv. 2
      - Build Air Base
      - Build Army Base lv. 2

      Day 3:
      - Build Recruiting Office

      Other potential research options:
      - Motorized Infantry (cheap and ranged attack at max level. doesn't get a boost though)
      - ASF (nice air cover, but Frigates those that job rather well already)
      - AFV (good damage all round, but has a nerf in European)
      - Destroyer (strong Naval Attack)

      That's it really! New Zealand is very simple to play in sim. Any comments or Suggestions?

      Umm, Aukland is on the same island as Wellington, where your free airport already is, putting one there won't help you get stuff to the long island.

      It’s a distance away from Wellington, and the air base there is suitable for hitting Fiji. You will be missing out if you do place the air base in Auckland, Dunedin is preferable, but both are valid choices.
      Excuse me for saying so, but this sounds like a rationalization for what you typed after the fact. Especially since you did elucidate your original reasoning.

      Auckland clearly does not fit the bill.
