Tropico 3

Tropico 3 Achievements

Homes for Everyone

Have population of over 250 and no Shacks  
First of all you need a large population, so you need to do some ground work. Build farms/ranchs etc to ensure you have a plentiful supply of food and if there are any built up areas without a farm nearby then you will need a marketplace. Next up build an Immigration Centre and set it to Open Door policy - so you have plenty of people coming into the island. Then it is a case of expanding your island until you have enough people. Once at 250 you will need enough housing - I would suggest only building Apartment (holds six families) or Condo's (holds four families) as this will help towards Tropican Fiesta. The Russian trade edict will have the cost of apartment building and be aware that Condo's require a power plant. Go into the building menu and change the rent to 1 or 2 to ensure full occupancy. When you have enough housing to hold your entire population check the Overlay menu for Shacks (Hold LT and X then go to the Occupancy option) it will say how many shacks you have and highlight them on the map. Now go around and demolish the remaining shacks which will force the occupants to move into your housing. Achievement unlocked.

Build them right over the shacks as to eliminate retard NPC problem. Also, delete the shacks.

Make sure to manually delete the shacks, as for some reason your Tropicans are too stupid to move out of the shacks into the brand spanking new buildings that are free to live in...

I have the best buildings with no rent on any of them and people still don't move into them! Annoying.
