Use time in your favor
The option of advancing in time is a very useful function for building factories and other establishments, but it is a double-edged sword at work. Avoid using it during work hours so you do not lose control of resources or any requests from your residents. A small slip may end up causing a long-term problem.

The temperature keeps everything running
The cold is devastating and directly affects the productivity, because it causes people to become ill, lack of work and need specialized treatment. Use the "O" shortcut and monitor the temperature of your city. Make sure the houses are around the generator for more heat, and turn on the heaters of the buildings when needed.

Research technologies for resource collection
By building the Workshop you will have access to technologies to produce more in less time. One tip is to invest first in research for the collection of raw materials and labor, such as Faster gathering, Sawmill, Beacon, Coal mining, among others from the Resources tab.

Your decisions have consequences
In Frostpunk, the city has indicators of discontent and hope, which appear in red and blue, respectively. Each action has a positive and negative consequence for people, which generates a number of external factors. The most striking are in the Book of Laws, where some test the limits of the human being. Do not be afraid to risk, but be careful not to sabotage yourself.

Bend the work shift if necessary
At the beginning of the game, you will need stock of resources to keep the generator running and to have enough food and shelter for future rescues. If necessary, use the Law Book to add an emergency shift or double the working hours. People will show discontent, but it is possible to reverse it with other positive actions.

Beware of the promises
With the passing of days, black icons with yellow counters will appear in the city. They are requests from the residents that vary according to the current situation of the place. Usually, you have three options to choose from, one of which is the ability to ignore the problem.
Do not promise what you can not fulfill in Frostpunk
Review the request and do not promise what you can not do. The discontent that is caused by not fulfilling a task in the required time is much greater than simply ignoring it.
Increase the resource ceiling
Resource Depots are stations capable of storing a larger quantity of a given raw material. If you are close to reaching the limit of some material, build more deposits so you do not lose what the villagers are mining.
Do not use engineers to collect resources
You must have realized that the population is divided between workers and engineers. Even if you can put them in any function, do not waste their energy on manual labor.
Engineers should work on the Frostpunk Workshop
Use them in Workshops to unlock new technologies. Want to increase production? Then have multiple Workshops to speed up the search process. Another tip is to activate the Engineer Apprentice law that will allow children to work in these establishments.
Explore the map and send search teams
The only way to expand the workforce is through search teams. Use the Workshop to unlock the Beacon and send rescue crews to search for survivors and resources in other regions of the map. Exploring is paramount, mainly because some features can not be produced, just found, such as Steam Core .

Buildings have manual functions
As stated earlier, time management is important for several reasons and this is one of them. Not sure where to activate the heaters or 24h shift? Do not freak out. The confusion happens because most functions are manual and should be done directly in the buildings. Click on the generator or other establishment and you will see a lot of icons depending on the laws you have set for the city.
