Next, you’ll want to build a Warehouse. This will store the sugar you produce, and allow you to regulate whether the sugar goes to the Dock or not. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Construction button (at the bottom of your screen).

  3. Click Warehouse.
  4. Once it has been built, click on the Warehouse.
