|Fountain of Life and Death|
|Building Type||Unique Building|
|Milestone Required||Tiny Town|
The Fountain of Life and Death is a level 2 unique building in Cities: Skylines. To unlock it, you must have 1 full lifespan lived in your city’s population.
You’ll also need to reach the Tiny Town milestone, which happens between 360-1,500 population, depending on the map.
Once these conditions are met, you’ll be able to build the Fountain of Life and Death from the level 2 tab of the Unique Buildings menu for ₡30,000.
Before then, you’ll see a progress bar when you hover over its silhouette in the menu.
Note: The Fountain of Life and Death is a requirement for the Fusion Power Plant monument.
A Full Lifespan
The Fountain of Life and Death is one of the easiest unique buildings to unlock, since all you really have to do is wait a few years.
The only reasons you might have trouble unlocking this is if your cities tend to fail very early in the game, possibly due to:
- Going bankrupt
- Getting abandoned because of poor services
- Losing your population to disasters (if playing with Natural Disasters DLC with random disasters enabled)
A full lifespan lived in the city means a person will have to be born there, grow up and reach adulthood there, then die of old age.
This takes roughly 6 in-game years.
But we can add to that timeframe a little bit of extra time for your city’s first inhabitants (the adults that moved in) to have a child.
So you can expect to unlock the fountain by simply playing for a little over 6 in-game years, and keeping your city healthy enough to retain a population.
