Las Vegas PropertiesEdit
In the meantime, we thought you might enjoy a glimpse at our creative process, and how things in the game go from ideas and concepts to the amazing artwork you see in the final game. We have a top notch art team here at Mafia Wars, who strive to bring all of the designers' ideas to light.
Here is an example of that creative process at work: this is what the "property" page for Vegas will look like. Each of the separate components of your hotel / casino complex can be upgraded individually, and look bigger and better as you upgrade them. In a future update we will show you some of the details about each individual property, but for now enjoy the finished work.
Id like to know how many of the Vegas items are needed?: Security Camera, Deposit Box, Guard Uniform, etc
just one of each? and what do they get used for? to upgrade/build the Casino?
Those items are used for upgrading the Vault - The Vault comprises of the 'Bank' to withdraw/deposit chips, and a 'Convert' feature, whereby NY Dollars can be exchanged for Vegas Chips once every 24 hours. The initial vault is rated 0.5 out of 5 stars and the exchange rate is $500,000 for V$1,000, I would assume that as you upgrade the Vault, the exchange rate becomes better and you can exchange more Dollars for Chips every 24hrs.
The first upgrade of the Vault requires three of each Vegas Items (Security Camera, Deposit Box, Magnetic Lock, Reinforced Steel, Motion Sensor), and as per Chop Shop and Weapon Depot, you can post help requests whereby friends can 'Supply some Materials'. Alternatively, you can purchase these items for 1RP each.
The first cash property is the 'Slots', you unlock the Slots by mastering an early job 'Steal a Truckload of Slots', this initially produces V$600 every 4 hours. The first upgrade of the slots requires 4 Slot Machines, 2 Cinder Blocks, 2 Steel Girders, 2 Concretes and 2 Construction Tools, these drop from Vegas jobs, or can be purchased for 1RP each.
