GUI Icon Contracts
Contracts become available when a player purchases the first International Slot, which itself becomes available at Level 10. To access contracts, click the Contracts button (shown at left), which is the rightmost of the six control buttons in the bottom left corner of the game screen.

Basic principlesEdit

Contractors are a player's business partners. Each contract is a job that helps a particular contractor run his or her business. These jobs include constructing buildings and decorations, delivering resources such as materials (Material) or gold (Gold), and sending locomotives, wagons or train sets. While most contracts have only one task to complete, some contracts require players to complete two or even three tasks. Other contracts allow players to choose between two available tasks; completing either task will fulfill the contract.

In return for the player's assistance, contractors give experience points (abbreviation: XP) (XP) and a reward after each contract is fulfilled. Rewards include buildings, decorations, locomotives, wagons, gems (Gems), and whistles (Whistle).

As of Feb 2015, the game has 14 regular contractors, who offer a total of 800 contracts. Occasionally, a seasonal contractor will appear in the game for a limited time, giving players more opportunities to earn rewards. Each contractor has a minimum required level players must achieve before working on her/his contracts. This represents the fact that different businesspeople look for business partners with different amounts of experience; the "Easy" contractors ask for little or no experience, while the "Hard" contractors want players to prove themselves before doing business with them. See column "Level" in the table below (for players who started after the 24 Jan 2013 Game Update).

When a player completes a regular contractor's final contract, the contractor delivers a special reward instead of one of the usual rewards. In addition, the contractor grants the player full use of her/his station, adding the station's passenger limit and passenger income to that of the player's Main Station. Seasonal contractors never grant the use of their stations because of the limited time they are available.

Trip Time and CostsEdit

The trip time for an international train depends on the route chosen. When dispatching an international train, a player may choose one of the following.

  • Standard Route - 4 hours; no extra cost
  • Fast Route - 3 hours; costs 9 Gems

The "Cancel Train" option is available only for the first 10 minutes of the trip. After 10 minutes, this option no longer appears in the Trains screen, and the player receives credit for all appropriate achievements.

An international train will arrive at a contractor's station two hours after being dispatched on a Standard Route, or one hour after being dispatched on a Fast Route.

On occasion, Pixel Federation will offer shorter international routes for a limited time. During these limited periods, the following times apply:

  • Route times:
    • Standard Route - 3 hours
    • Fast Route - 1 hour
  • Time to arrive at contractor's station:
    • Standard Route - 1 hour
    • Fast Route - 30 minutes

An international train will wait in a contractor's station for one hour. If the player manually collects the train's load, the contractor will receive 110% of what the train carries. After one hour, the train will give the contractor 100% of the train's load, and depart the contractor's station.
