  • Have you discovered the horror of manually doing all of those Requests in Facebook? We sure have - so we decided to do something about it. GiftAuto will handle your Facebook game gift requests automatically!

    GiftAuto currently handles the following facebook games (FarmVille, FrontierVille, Cafe World, Mafia Wars Treasure Isle, FishVille, PetVille, Zoo World, Happy Pets, Pet Society, Restaurant City and Baking Life) and we fully plan to add support for the rest of them.

  • I am afraid this calculation is not valid. Not sure if this is a game update problem, there are now new factors in the game. At level 15 you unluck the drinks, either if you have a drink machine or not the customer will want to order a drink at any time and will walk out when theres no drinks delivered. Having four cooks and 2 watiers the cooks have to wait for the waiters to make the drinks and do notting as there are plates unclean on the table and the cheif cannot cook anything else while there is no one collecting the finish dish.

    Also another key factor that you have missed out is if you make toilets and block them to the customers they cannot give you a thumbs down and will just walk out without upgrading or degrading the populaity.

Restaurant City Optimization

  1. 1. Restaurant City Optimization Getting to level 20 in a week! Apisilp Trunganont (MacroArt) www.playfish.in.th #barcampbangkok #barcampbkk3
  2. 2. Mone Gourme Popularit Level y t Point y Employe e Energy
  3. 3. To achieve level 20… • You need 86,000 Gourmet Points. • Popularity score (maximum at 50) does not matter. It is just lagging indicator. • Money and Employee Energy do some matter. I will explain later.
  4. 4. Gourmet Point Formula GP = P × Q • P = Point you will earn when your waiters clear customer’s dish. • Q = Quantity of dishes you can serve customers, count from the beginning of playing this game. • Increment of P and Q will make you achieve level 20 faster!
  5. 5. Factors
  6. 6. Level of dish • Level 1 (Simple) = +1.0 Gourmet Point (GP) • Level 2 (Standard) = +1.2 GP • Level 3 (Classic) = +1.4 GP • Level 4 (Tasty) = +1.6 GP • Level 5 (Delicious) = +1.8 GP • Level 6 (Luxurious) = +2.0 GP • Level 7 (Gourmet) = +2.2 GP • Level 8 (Sensational) = +2.4 GP • Level 9 (Ultimate) = +2.6 GP • Level 10 (Royal) = +2.8 GP
  7. 7. What if you do not level up any dish? • Scenario 1: Running your restaurant with only level-1 dishes in 3 categories. • Scenario 2: Level up your dishes to one more level when you can achieve higher game level. So you will have level-10 dishes in 3 categories after you achieve level 10 of the game. • Assumptions – 1 cook & 1 waiter in game level 1 – 2 cooks & 1 waiter in game level 2-4 – 3 cooks & 1 waiter in game level 5-7 – 3 cooks, 1 waiter & 1 cleaner in game level 8-10 – 4 cooks, 1 waiter & 1 cleaner in game level 11-13 – 4 cooks, 2 waiters & 1 cleaner in game level 14-16 – 5 cooks, 2 waiters & 1 cleaner in game level 17-20 – Cooks work 100% of time – Maintain employee energy at 80.0% up
  8. 8. What if you do not level up any dish? (cont.) • Scenario 1 – Serve 86,000 dishes to achieve level 20. – Need at least 85 hours to serve 86,000 dishes. – To achieve in a week, you have to play at least 12 hours a day. • Scenario 2 – Serve 31,510 dishes. – Need 32 hours. – Play 4.5 hours a day.
  9. 9. Get level-10 dishes • Focus on only one dish in each category. • Choose the right dish to level up. • Collect the ingredients-you-need.
  10. 10. Get new ingredients • Daily free ingredient – Play the game everyday to get free ingredient. • Daily food quiz – Choose the correct answer to get free ingredient. – Review the correct answer at http://www.playfish.in.th/restaurant-city/daily-food-quiz/ • First friend visit – Convince your existing friends to play RC and then visit their restaurant. – Add new friends to get more free ingredient. BE CAREFUL, if you have too many friends, your game will get slower and your browser will crash after a few visits. You may have to remove some friends from your facebook. – Post your Facebook profile at http://www.playfish.in.th/restaurant-city/restaurant-city-facebook/ (Thai only) • Buy – Use your coins to buy from the ingredient stall on the pavement on the top right outside of your restaurant.
  11. 11. Buy Ingredients
  12. 12. Ingredient Trade Tips • You can trade your ingredients with your friends. On the other hand, your friends can trade with you too. • If you agree that it is difficult to get new ingredient, you must always LOCK your ingredients. So you will never get the unwanted ingredients. • Many-stars ingredients do not mean they will be good for your game. 1-star flour is rare item and it is required in 8 dishes. While you always get 5-star saffron from everywhere, but it is required in only 1 dish. • Do not be selfish. Do think of your friend. You should offer only the ingredient-your-friend-need for the ingredient-you-need. Or at least, you should offer the ingredient that your friends do not have it yet. • Use marketplace to match your and your friends’ need.
  13. 13. Thai Marketplace http://rctrade.playfish.in.th/
  14. 14. Global Marketplace http://apps.facebook.com/rcmarket/
  15. 15. Evaluate the right dish to level up • How easily you can find the ingredients you need? • See what ingredients are offered by 10,000+ players. • Assign the easy-to-find (ETF) score from 0 to 1 for every ingredients. • In this case, pepperoni and saffron are the most given with 95-100% share, so let give them 1.0 score. • Carrot has 90-95% share, give it 0.95 score. • Prawn is the less given with 5-10% share, give it 0.10 score. * From RC Market App - May 16, 2009
  16. 16. Evaluate the right dish to level up (cont.) • Calculate the easy-to-level-up (ETLU) score for every dish using the following formula. ETLU Score = [i1 + i2 + i3 (+ i4)] ÷ n • i = ETF score of ingredient required in dish recipe (some dish like Vegetarian Fried Rice requires 4 ingredients) • n = Number of required ingredients (3 or 4)
  17. 17. Example of Evaluation • Cheese: 30-35% => ETF Score = 0.35 • Tomato: 15-20% => ETF Score = 0.20 • Flour: 15-20% => ETF Score = 0.20 • ETLU Score = (0.35 + 0.20 + 0.20) ÷ 3 = 0.25
  18. 18. Another Example of Evaluation • Rice: 30-35% => ETF Score = 0.35 • Tofu: 70-75% => ETF Score = 0.75 • Leek: 50-55% => ETF Score = 0.55 • Mushroom: 40-45% => ETF Score = 0.45 • ETLU Score = (0.35 + 0.75 + 0.55 + 0.45) ÷ 4 = 0.525
  19. 19. Criteria of Evaluation • Every required ingredients must have easy-to-find score above 0.25. • The higher easy-to-level-up score, the preferable dish it is.
  20. 20. Speed of Service • Minimize waiter walk – Use block style for table arrangement.
  21. 21. Speed of Service (cont.) • Minimize customer walk – Some tips may suggest you to use furniture to extend customer walk. – But longer path from door to table means tables are often vacant and you loss the opportunity to sell. – I suggest you to shorten the path from door to table. • Maintain employee energy – Replenish your employees immediately when their energy go below 80.0%. – Cooks can complete their job within 15 seconds if their energy are above 80.0%. Cooking time will significantly drop to 30 seconds if their energy are 79.9% or below.
  22. 22. Capacity • Table-to-Cook ratio should not be lower than 3:1. • Too many tables may disappoint customers because they must wait longer. • But who cares? The Popularity score does not affect your Gourmet Point and level. • Always replenish your cook energy. Cooks work fast, customers are happy.
  23. 23. Availability • Always stay in your restaurant if possible. When you are in your own restaurant, you will earn both money and Gourmet Point. • Redecorate your restaurant, change menu, go out to street, visit your friends’ restaurants, or quit from game, will still generate money for you, but not Gourmet Point. • If you have to quit from game – Leave only 1 cook and 1 waiter to work. – Let others go to rest. – Click save. – When you come back again, you will get 2,000 coins but will loss only 400 coins to buy 2 sandwiches to replenish 1 cook and 1 waiter.
