Before you start founding new town you need to focus on your cashflow. Founding town cost around 11,000,000 between 20,000,000 in £ when I played with starting amount 100,000£. So it’s around 100x – 200x your starting founds. And after that you have town with around 1 000 people.

But this isn’t just about having a lot of money. You need strong income. Is good that you have around 2,000,000 £ monthly income but this will be risky. The most safe will be if you have a monthly income of 1.5 times the price of the city. Then you won’t miss these money and you still have a lot of money to building roads and expanding your new town.
