One of the basic instructions on how to play Town Star is that you need to know how to choose the starting area, and how to perform basic actions in the game.
2.1. Initial location selection
The first thing players do when starting with Town Star will be to choose a location to place the town. This is very important to decide the strategy and future of the town. Currently, Town Star will have 3 ways to choose a location:
- Forest: Much of this biome is covered in forests, ponds, and swamps, which means you can often find yourself running out of space to build. This though gives you an edge over others when it comes to getting industrial goods sooner.
- Plains: is the choice for adventurous players who have an idea of what they want to tackle their town looks like in Town Star.
- Desert: Desert has no trees, no pond, but the player gets an oil reservoir. Excellent choice for mining sand used to produce glass bottles needed for wine production.

When clicking on a tile in your town to select it, always point your click to the center of the ground in that tile. You will always see a marked border around the cell you selected, and action options will appear at the bottom of the screen.

Right click and drag to rotate the view. Use this to see your town from different angles.
Your mouse wheel will be for zooming in and out. Scroll it up to zoom in and scroll down to zoom out. Use this function to get a close-up view of your farm animals.
2.3 How to get started for beginners
Building strategies in the correct order are key to town success in Town Star. Players will want to focus on building their farm and farming first so they can start generating resources, then move on to industrial buildings and finally commercial buildings.
As for the order to build different types of farms, it doesn’t really matter as long as you have at least one of each type. However, it is recommended that players should build those things in this order:
- Wheat farm
- Chicken farm
- Cake shop
3. Instructions for building basically in Town Star
There are two main building/construction icons and both are found in the lower right corner of the screen. Before clicking 1 of 2, you must first select the cell/slot that you want to build. Do it by simply clicking in the middle of any square on the land. Then open one of the building/building menus, you’ll be shown which buildings are eligible to be placed on that tile.
3.1. Store icon
The in-game shop is where you’ll find all the standard in-game units that can only be purchased with in-game currency. Every player has access to the same options in this menu, and which building can be played depends on the specifics of the tile you selected outside of the menu.
Buildings that cannot currently be constructed will be GRAY in the shop. All buildings will always be displayed in 5 different categories (building types) in the image below:
Farm – Fields and all farm related structures are found here.
Ranch – All buildings and units related to the animal farm are found here.
Terrain – This is where you can change the appearance of the land where your town is located, including: roads, ponds, grasslands….
Industrial Plant – These are all buildings and units involved in industrial production.
Trade – These units will help you ship goods and collect cash.
3.2. How to build
To build on a plot location, simply select the building by clicking on the button with the cost of that building/building. Money will be deducted immediately and the building will begin to be built in your game.
Remember that building often requires time, energy from the Builder, and materials from your various storage units. Materials required to build each building are listed in the shop, below the image of each building.
3.3. NFT icon
The NFT menu contains all the NFT items owned in your Town Star collection. These items can be placed, built, or used in-game just like standard in-game items, but with a few key differences.
- Free to build: Because you already own these items as NFTs, there is no need to pay with in-game currency to build.
- Instant Construction: When using NFT items, you will get construction right on the land location immediately. Not only is there no construction cost, but also no time and materials.
- Scarcity: Unlike standard in-game assets that can be built by all players in unlimited quantities, NFT items are limited by supply on the blockchain.

3.4. Remove works
Removing buildings is easy, regardless of whether the removed construction is NFT or standard in the game. Simply click on the location with the construction you want to remove, then select “Remove” by clicking the bomb icon below.
Most of the standard buildings in the game generate money when they are destroyed. You should be able to tell the cash value in green. Some locations contain obstacles such as Trees, Shrubs, Swamps and Rocks, which actually cost money to destroy, in which case the coins will appear red.
