The game is old but is still fun. I was just starting a new city for fun, and a little into it I noticed I wasn't making any money.

I heard the main way to get a profit is through taxes now. But the only way I could do that is make taxes like almost 15% and strangle the expenses so much that there barely getting any money for that stuff. And I'm still only making a couple hundred.

So I can zone more land and then get money from their tax and stuff, but then there will also be more expenses. I guess I'm just not good at the game lol.

I found it near impossible to gain a positive account without using a trainer. It might be that the loans are necessary now, though I always hated using them.

You need to start off slowly. Don't build everything at once, and don't build utilities like water, schools, hospitals, police or fire until your advisors start giving you warnings about them. Start off with coal-fired power plants placed far away.

FFN is totally right. I play the game myself. Read up on some strategies. Its all about patience and only giving your sims what they need. Lower your funding to meet its demand at schools and hosptials. Dont build water and other nice things until your sims need them, medium commercial zones etc. no need to even use the trainer, allthough 1 billion up fron makes nice for highways n such.
