Is it possible to make a city-building game in TGF? If it is possible, send me a tutorial of it or some coding techniques...

I don't think anyone's going to have a few easy coding tips or tutorials for you. You have to accumulate a lot of techniques on different things to make something like that.

I'm fairly certain that it's possible, but don't get your hopes up about being sent a complete tutorial of it (that would make it too easy!). What could be more useful is putting together ideas on how you could make it, rather than asking for a complete technique - you'll need to think about the level of detail you want cities to be built at, what "tiles" the user should be able to lay down and how they should interact with each other. Also bear in mind that you'll most likely need some way to save a city in progress.

It's a fairly ambitious project.

Wasn't there already a city building game made? Or is it in progress? I KNOW ive seen it somewhere before.
But a city game, depending on how complex you want to make it will require stuff like arrays and lists. So its probably a good idea to get used to tose data structures first.

It would probably take a lot more work to make than you might first think.
but it is quite possible.

Sim city was released on formats such as the 48k spectrum, if it works on that i'm sure it could work in tgf if you know what you're doing.

I've done the reverse: a recreation of the Firestarter game from FLCL.

I only made enough to determine that it doesn't work as an actual game. It's on the pile for things that I might finish one day maybe probably not though.
