The primary source of credits in Tiny Death Star is from the sale of items in the commercial levels. The levels vary wildly in the types of products and services offered, spanning the categories Food, Service, Recreation, and Retail catering to both rich and poor Bitizens.
Each establishment sells 1-credit, 2-credit and 3-credit items and stocks these items in a varying number of units, requiring 1 minute per 10 units to order. This creates a spectrum of high value to low value levels. Most of the Food Levels are low value levels because they stock few units, which sell out quickly, and require constant attention to keep stocked. Very high value levels, like Imperial Court and Bounty Hunters, are Service levels. An order at one of these levels is for a large number of units and takes a long time to fulfill. However, once stocked they stay open for long periods of time. All level categories have a mix of both low and high value levels.
Players can order one item at a time from each level. An item can be ordered when it is out of stock. When the order is ready the player must click the level to stock the item. The sale of units for credits happens over time and is automatic.
A level can be improved in three ways
- Upgrade the level rank. This can be accomplished using Imperial Bux or an Upgrader VIP. Every time a level is upgraded, the amount of stock generated per order is increased by 10% of the base units for the level, without increasing the time to order. For example consider a level of rank 1 with units of 10, 100, and 1000 per stocking for 1-coin, 2-coin, and 3-coin items. Upgrading the level to rank 2 will increase the units per stocking by 10% to 11, 110, and 1100. Increasing the level again, to rank 3, will upgrade the units per stocking another 10% of the base unit levels, resulting in 12, 120, and 1200 units per stocking.
- Hire Dream Job Bitizens When hiring Bitizens for a level choose Bitizens whose dream job matches the level. For the same amount of time, Bitizens in the their dream job order twice the units of a normal Bitizen. As a bonus, giving a Bitizen their dream job earns the player an Imperial Bux.
- Hire highly skilled Bitizens Every Bitizen has a skill rating for each category of level. When hiring Bitizens for a level choose Bitizens with higher skills over Bitizens with lower skills. The time to order all items is reduced by a percentage equal to the sum of the skill points for all Bitizen employees. There is a minimum of 1 minute to order. But, if given a choice between a Bitizen whose dream job matches the level with a low skill and a normal Bitizen with a high skill, hire the Bitizen whose dream job matches the level.
Each level built increases the number of credits required to build the next level. Below are some some examples of costs to build the next level
