Here are some basic tips and guidelines for New Players confused about what to do in the game. This guide will prepare you to know what to expect in the game and how to react. This format is written in an easy way of understanding for some players because the game is so complex sometimes. This guide will help players understand the game more easily and enjoy the game without getting confused.
**NEW PLAYER PROTECTION**
New player accounts have 5 days or protection from being attacked AS LONG AS THEY REMAIN IN NOOBVILLAH. Once they leave Noobvillah, that protection is lost and will not be added back for any reason.
1. BANK ACCOUNT
Your bank account is called the City Bank where you keep your cash in the bank. Please keep all cash inside your bank because any cash not kept in the bank can be stolen by another player using the "Rob Office" feature.
City Bank pays 2% daily interest to regular players on a maximum of $50 million, and 4% daily interest to donators (players who have purchased a donator pack). The interest is paid at midnight game server time.
2. CRYSTAL BANK
This is where your crystals are stored so they cannot be stolen. Always keep your crystals in the bank so that another player cannot steal them using the "Hack PC" feature.
3. SEARCH THE STREETS
You get 100 turns daily to use in searching the streets.You can pick up money, crystals, weapons, EXP and a variety of items including small medical kits, chocolates, penicillin, and other items from searching the streets. Searching the streets does have its own risks, but there are items you can get from certain crimes by accessing the "Crimes" link in the left-side menu to combat the perils of street turns. You can also purchase some of these items in the "Item Market" located on the Explore page. Your Street Turns can also be sold for cash on the Steps Market located on the Explore page as well.
4. LUCKY BOXES
Located on the Explore page is a link for Lucky Boxes. You get 5 boxes per day and they cost $1,000 each to open, but you win either cash or crystals from them.
Enter the Mines every time you have 10 on your POWER bar. The Level 1 Mine is a crystal mine where you can find free crystals. The level 10 Mine is a cash mine where you find free money. Your mining level is different from your game level. The more you go to the mines, you gain EXP for mining. When you reach 100 EXP in mining, you advance to the next level of mining.
There are a variety of weapons to fight with as well as armor to protect you in Criminal Nations. The more expensive the weapons and armor, the stronger they are. Different weapons are found in different nations, with the strongest weapons and armor being found in the higher nations.
You equip weapons and armor by clicking your Inventory link in the left-side menu, locating the weapon you want to equip, and clicking the "equip" link for that item. You can equip one weapon as a primary weapon and a different weapon as a secondary weapon.
You equip armor also by clicking the equip armor link for the item you wish to equip.
7. ILLEGAL BUSINESS
This is found on the Explore page. There are 100 turns issue daily to use for your illegal business. When you first click the link for illegal business, the first thing to do here is click the link that says "Buy Things." You need to buy some warehouses for your drugs and fields to grow your weed. You also need to buy some products (weed, meth, coke) to keep your drug makers and hoes/prostitutes from running off when you go to seek more. The amount you can buy is limited by the amount of cash you have on hand (outside the bank). Once you buy these things, then you scout for hoes/prostitutes and drug makers. Each drug maker and hoe/prostitute you find makes a drug each time you seek. For example, if you use 15 turns to seek and you 25 hoes, 25 prostitutes, and 25 of each drug maker, all of those people are making a drug 15 times each for seeking 15 turns. They will use some drugs during the seeking process, but over a period of time you will end up with a nice surplus from seeking, and that surplus can be sold back to the game for game cash.
8. BUYING A HOUSE
Your stat gains from training are largely dependent on the will from either your house or your partner's house (if you are married). Players that are married in the game use the will from the more expensive house that either they or their partner owns and therefore will gain better stats when training. The larger and more expensive the house is, the higher the will and the larger the gains will be in stats on training. The size of the house also determines how many employees you can hold. The larger the house, the more employees it holds.
You purchase a house by clicking the Explore link, and finding the "Your Estate" link. Once you click the "Your Estate" link, you decide which house you want to purchase. If you already own a house other than Mum's House, the value of the house you own is taken into consideration when upgrading to the next house. So you will only need to have the difference between the two houses in cash on hand to make you upgrade housing purchase.
Any time you make changes in housing, you will always goes down to 0. You will either need to wait for it to refill over time, visit the whorehouse and pay cash to the whores which refills your will, or use a will shot or will potion from your inventory.
The link for crimes is located in the left-side menu. You do various crimes to earn cash and EXP to move up to the next game level. The Brave bar determines which crimes you are able to attempt. The higher you move in game levels, the more brave you gain as well. Being successful in crimes is determined by the will from housing, your stats and your game level. But being successful is not guaranteed as random is also a factor in whether you succeed or fail. The higher the brave cost on crimes, the more cash you earn from the crimes.
10. BATTLE TENT
There are several NPCs (non-playing characters) here with average stats for their level and average weapons for their level. You attack them and if you win, you will be awarded cash.
11. CRIMINAL NATIONS STAFF
Criminal Nations Staff Members can be found on the left-side menu under Staff if they are online, or on the Explore page under the Criminal Nations Staff link.

12. TRAVEL AGENCY
This link is found on the Explore page and allows you to travel from one nation to another for a fee of $1000 each time you travel. More nations become available to you to travel to as you increase your game level. Each nation has different types of shops as well as different items in each shop at the different levels. The higher your level, the better items you are able to buy, such as weapons, armor, and other collectable items.

You can vote on some of them, or all of them. You can only vote on each one once daily. The more sites you vote on, the more cash and crystals you get for taking the time to vote.

Be sure to log in every day to put away the cash from your job so that it is not stolen. The higher the stat requirement for a job, the better the job pays.
The jail link is found on the left-side menu. You may land in jail if you are caught attempting a crime. The amount of time you spend in jail depends on the crime. You can use a jail key to get out, pay the bribe for the guard to let you out, or wait for a player to notice you are in jail and try to bust you out.
If you see the jail link lit up in blue with Bubba's name next to it, this means someone has successfully completed the Jail Bust Crime which locks Bubba in jail, and everyone is free from jail for the next 5 minutes even if they fail a crime.
