One way of making money is producing goods and either selling them to the bank, on the market, or in shops. All products fall into one of three categories.

Raw materials

Raw materials are natural resources that can be extracted from the environments of your company. No materials are needed when extracting raw materials. For instance, wood is harvested from forests and stone is mined from the ground. Raw materials are usually refined into more advanced, and more valuable products. Raw materials available in Tycoon Online are cotton, fresh fish, oil, pigs, stone, wheat and wood.

All raw materials are level 1 products meaning they have not gone through any refinement processes.

Production supplies

Production supplies are materials used to produce other products. For instance, to produce newspapers, a printing press requires paper. A toy factory requires plastic to produce toys. Production supplies can be sold to the bank or on the market, but no shops sell these goods because they are materials that are only required to create more advanced products. Production supplies available in Tycoon Online are flour, paper, planks, plastic and thread.

All production supplies are level 2 products. This means they have gone through one refinement process. For instance, wood that has become planks has gone through a refinement process in a sawmill.

Finished products

This is the final step in the production process. Finished products are goods that can be sold in shops, in addition to the bank and the market. For instance, marble made from stone, or bread made from flour.

Finished products can be either level 2 or level 3 products. Products that have been refined once, like alcohol, are level 2 products. Level 2 finished products in Tycoon Online are alcohol, frozen fish, gasoline, marble and sausages. Products that have gone through two stages of refinement, like furniture, are level 3. Level 3 finished products in Tycoon Online are bread, clothes, furniture, newspapers and toys.

The product level summary

Level 1: Cotton, fresh fish, oil, pigs, stone, wheat and wood.

Level 2: Alcohol, flour, frozen fish, gasoline, marble, paper, planks, plastic, sausages and thread.

Level 3: Bread, clothes, furniture, newspapers and toys.
