How to Produce Something?
Look in the Township menu where you can see Tick on screen, it should be above your Township tab menu and below the resources, you provide the ticks yourself instead of it being automatic.
It should be like this, Tick 1 (5m) 12 (1h) 144 (12h) 288 (1d).
Do note that you earn ticks every 5 minutes even if offline, clicking any of the tick buttons will progress that amount of ticks awarding whatever resources you have buildings for.
Just don’t forget the negatives also, I think it was best not to be automatic due to the negative outcomes that could cause a town to fail.
