CityVille 2 Cheats & Tips: Craft new items in Rosemary's Studio


As you begin to expand your city in CityVille 2, you'll be introduced to Rosemary, an environmentally conscious young woman that loves nothing more than recycling and rescuing animals. She has a crafting building all to herself, full of these sorts of items, and you can use it to craft items that can be used elsewhere in your town. This "Rosemary's Studio" item is earned by first expanding out into the Bellvue District, which requires you to have 3,000 citizens to access. Here's a look at the times you can craft inside, and how to earn the ingredients necessary to complete them.

In addition to these recipes, you'll eventually be able to craft recipes in other crafting buildings, such as the Bazaar or University which are unlocked at 10,000 or 20,000 citizens in population, respectively. As of right now, there are only five crafting building available to purchase in the store, but as the largest one requires 70,000 citizens to unlock, I'm sure this small selection will still give you plenty of things to work on as you try to unlock them all.
