    Kids
    The kids are the youngest citizens in Pizza World. Their limited allowances
    means that they can afford only simpler pizzas. They don't care much for a
    wild mixture of tastes, anyway. But the pizzas should be evenly put
    together. If their ears are then treated to hard techno or at least rock
    music, they feel right at home. They like restuarants with the youngest
    possible personnel. They feel slightly threatened by the presence of more
    than 1 guard.

    Teens
    Music is THE hobby for teens in Pizza World. They like to meet members of
    their clique in a pizzeria. The atmosphere really heats up if there is hot
    rock music or techno. So much exercise makes you really hungry! So teens
    want a lot of stuff on their pizzas. The personnel should be about 20. They
    definitely feel disturbed by guards.

    Students
    Health-conscious and with a definite touch of alternative life-style:
    students in Pizza World. They listen to almost every kind of music, but
    their favourite is meditative. They are relatively choosy about the recipes
    and want a high proportion of vegetables as well as symmetrical design and
    as many different sections on the pizza as possible. An intermediate
    personnel ratio, age around 25, is ideal for them. They can't stand guards.

    Louts
    These are hard-working people. Their rough, monotonous work in factories and
    at the docks has affected their character. They don't care at all for fancy
    extras. They love to hear either hits or Italian music. The personnel should
    be about 30. They are not fond of guards.

    Yuppies
    Everyone knows the stressed-out high-flyers. Always on the go, always
    working. Even when they relax for a moment, they meet for a pleasant chat
    about the latest stock prices or a business deal. Their musical tastes run
    to jazz, classical or mediative. They enjoyed been surrounded by personnel,
    who should be just under 30. Yuppies are not much bothered by guards.

    Big Shots
    This is the moneyed class in the city. Since they don't have to worry about
    prices, they pay close attention to quality. They prefer clean surroundings
    with classy entertainment, especially classical music or jazz in the
    background. They want their pizzas to be presented in a perfectly
    symmetrical shape. They expect a very high personnel ratio in a restaurant.
    The personnel should be formal, about 40 years old. Big Shots have no
    particular problems with guards in a restaurant.

    Oldies
    Time has clearly taken its toll on them. Everything is measured by the
    somewhat romanticized memories of the glorious past. They are most happy
    with a background of either classical music or snappy marches. They value
    the correct size of the portions of the ingredients. The personnel ratio
    should be medium and about 40. The presence of guards is tolerated by and
    large.

    Tourists
    Every city is overrun by this species. Easily recognizable even at a
    distance by the constant flash of cameras, they storm everything which is
    even half-way interesting. They enjoy unusual foods they can tell their
    neighbours about. They love piped-in regional radio stations or Italian
    music. They prefer restuarants with a lot of personnel, especially
    experienced people around 35. They can only tolerate 1 or 2 guards at most
    without feeling ill-at-ease.

    Staff
    =====
    Errand Boy
    These hard-working employees are the foundation of your company. They
    deliver all of the delicious ingredients to your restaurant; without them,
    your cooks would be out of work. As long as you don't have a warehouse, they
    will just buy the ingredients at the nearest department store - a high
    retail prices! These fellows should no be too slow, or they won't be able to
    keep up with the work. You can even have your errand boys deliver pizzas and
    won't be dependent on people coming into your restaurant.
    
    Service
    If you want your guests to be satisfied with prompt service, you should
    carefully choose your service personnel. If service is too slow, it can cost
    the profit of the entire restaurant. The higher a service person's
    qualifications, the more orders he can remember. He also doesn't have to run
    to the cook so often to turn in the orders.
    
    Cook
    As soon as an employee is hired as a cook, he proudly wears his working
    uniform. He is the most important employee in the restaurant. Without him,
    nothing works! The performance of your cooks and the ovens in a restaurant
    affects both the potiental number of pizzas produced and their quality.
    
    Manager
    Of course a restaurant can run without its own manager - but not too well.
    This employee can take care of many important details which can give you a
    decisive edge over the competition. You can even delegate personnel
    management, price policy and the maintenance of furnishings of the
    restaurant to your manager. However, you must have a level 3 headquarters to
    do this.
    
    Guard
    These strong gentlemen can be hired to protect restaurants or your
    headquarters. They protect the building the entire day from nuisances or
    criminals. If attacked by gangsters, they have to defend themselves with
    weapons. Depending on their training, your guards are better armed and
    protected. But some target groups are annoyed by the presence of guards when
    they are eating.
    
    Punk
    These are nasty characters. They hang around jails and abuse passer-by.
    However, punks can also be hired for a little money to go to a competitor's
    restaurant. The customers there, especially Yuppies and Big Shots, won't be
    at all pleased, nor will the competitor's manager, who will now have to put
    guards in the restaurant to make sure nothing terrible happens.
    
    Courier
    These young petty criminals, who were waiting for their big chance, can be
    found in every city. They can be hired fairly cheaply at a jail and take any
    job without a second thought. Normally, they are only given small jobs which
    aim to contaminate a restaurant. But the really lucky ones get to blow up
    entire buildings with a bomb!
    
    Thugs
    They aren't the brightest under the sun. That is why thugs are given only
    the very simplest jobs. Thugs are physically very powerful, giving them a
    clear advantage at beating and clubbing things or people. They are also used
    to tear everything in a competitor's restaurants to pieces. But if guards
    shoot at them, they will defend themselves! They also defend the
    headquarters and can beat up employees.
    
    Gangster
    This shady character is an expert on firearms. Depending on his training, he
    is armed with a pistol, a rifle or a machine gun. Normally he is used to
    clean out the guards in a restaurant or to kidnap a personnel. But he
    doesn't hesitate to get into a shoot-out with a police squad. If your
    headquarters is too weakly protected by guards or other gangsters, he can
    lead the way for a bomb. They are also in charge of kidnapping and blackmail
    jobs.

    Other Characters
    ================
    Celebrity
    From time to time, VIPs will also deign to appear. Head of government, film
    stars and aristocrats visit the cities in Pizza World, with the press at
    their heels every step of the way. Whenever a celebrity eats in a
    restuarant, it becomes an attraction for the common people for a short
    while. It gives the restaurant a better rating in any event.
    
    Fat Man
    Thanks to his big inheritance, he no longer has to worry about earning a
    living. He has decided to concentrate soley on his favorite activity:
    eating. He stuffs himself from morning to night. For his hobby, he always
    look for the restaurant with the best pizzas in the town. Naturally, his
    visit is like a winning lottery ticket for the selected restaurant. His
    tastes are in the meantime much like those of a Big Shot.
    
    Policeman
    If a building is attacked, a squad is automatically sent to the scene from
    the police station. The strength of the squad depends on the size of the
    donations to the police. But each police station has only 1 squad. Couriers,
    punks and thugs are arrested immediately. But gangsters defend themselves
    with tooth and nail. If the attackers have already disappeared when the
    police arrive, the police carry out a raid. A restaurant, particularly if
    the company has a bad reputation, can be closed down on the spot.
    
    Offical
    The officals work in the city administration. From there, they fan out to
    check up on the restaurants. They come from one of 3 offices: Tax Office,
    Health Office or Employment Office. 1 restaurant is carefully examined by
    the officals every quarter-year. The worse a company's reputation, the more
    often the checks. They check hygenie, quality of ingredients, condition of
    personnel and unoffical revenues.
    
    Mayor
    He is the most important institution in a city - at least he himself is
    totally convinced of that. The prices he sets for rental objects and
    property in the city depend on how much he likes you. Moreover, he awards
    the converted gourmet stars and medals for restaurants. These decorations
    are a must in restaurants, particularly for big shots. Unfortunately, the
    mayor is not particularly objective in making his decisions. This great
    man's generosity appears only when donations flow.
    
    Flyer Boy
    As soon as you start advertising for a restaurant, this boy runs around the
    neighbourhood and hands out flyers. Your advertising is on these flyers.
    
    Supplier
    As soon as your warehouses have run almost empty, your supplier will be
    automatically informed to keep the supplies coming in. His employees will
    deliver the ingredients straight to the warehouse to fill it up completely.
    
    Cleaning
    If you don't close your restaurants for a long time, they get dirty. Your
    guests, and above all the Health Office, don't find that all funny. As soon
    as a restaurant closes, workers from the municipal cleaning team come by.
    These busy helpers then clean the restaurant. The time they need depends on
    amount of dirt. The team stops working at the latest when the restaurant
    reopens.
    
    Exterminator
    Your competitiors also do not always fight fairly. Suddenly, you have rats,
    cockroaches or woodworms in your restaurants. They drive away your guests
    and even destory the furniture! These pests can only be removed by a
    professional. A less expensive municipal exterminator takes much longer to
    do his job than an expensive top professional.
    
    ==============
    Main Buildings
    ==============
    Pizzeria
    The most important buildings on the city map are of course the restaurants.
    Your competitors' restaurants can be distinguished by the colour of the
    roofs, which is always the player's colour. The small restaurants can be
    expanded twice. First you have a snack bar, then a small restaurant and
    finally a large restaurant. Each pizzeria has a circle of influence around
    the building. The larger the restaurant, the larger the basic circle of
    influence (even without advertising).
    
    Advantages of expansion: larger guest area
                             storeroom can hold more crates
                             better refrigeration
                             larger area of influence

    Kitchen capacity:      4 ovens
    Storeroom capacity:    4400 kg
    
    Warehouse
    Warehouses are an important investment for restaurant owners so you don't
    have to buy your ingredients at high prices from the department store around
    the corner. Just like the pizzerias, there are 3 sizes of warehouses, and
    you can see who they belong to by the colour of the roof. The best approach
    is to select the suppiler for a warehouse first, based on the quality of
    ingredients you want. Then you can assign the restaurants for which the
    quality is suitable to the warehouse. Always pay attention to the travel
    distances for the errand boys.
    
    Advantages of expansion: easier to supply several restaurants at 1 time
                             better refrigeration
                             reduced transport costs

    Other Buildings
    ===============
    Flats
    Everyone who lives here has a home, of course. Normally he is there at
    night. The appearance of the residences varies greatly from city to city as
    a rule. But even when the buildings are typical for each country, they are
    still just residential buildings.
    
    School
    Even in Pizza World, kids must go to school. In the mornings, they all flood
    into the few school buildings. Due to the many breaks, you can sell quite a
    lot of pizza to the boys and girls. But this location is not very
    interesting for other target groups.
    
    Department Store
    Shopping opportunities are the centre of every city. Everyone living in
    Pizza World has to do his daily shopping in the nearest department store.
    That is why pizzerias located near department stores are always heavily
    frequented. Shopping is hard work and makes people hungry. As long as a
    restaurant doesn't have a warehouse, the errand boys buy the ingredients at
    the nearest department store at high end consumer price.
    
    Church
    This place of attraction pulls in the Oldies and the Tourists especially -
    although for completely different reasons. Since Tourists never pay too
    much attention to the sights, this is a good place to lure Tourists into a
    restaurant.
    
    Cinema
    Cinemas are the big attraction for crowds, especially in the evenings. Young
    and old meet here. A cinema near a restaurant is a good guarantee for good
    sales.
    
    Playground
    There are playgrounds for children at a number of places in a city. With
    sandboxes, swings and other highlights of good children's entertainment. The
    kids are always happy to come here. But, of course, only when it's not too
    dark outside. The children usually have enough money from their allowances
    to buy a pizza from time to time.
    
    Park
    The park is a popular meeting place for everyone except the big shots.
    Around midday people start pouring into the parks for a short break and
    rest. Tourists and Oldies are especially fond of their visits to the park.
    
    Pub
    When stores close, the pubs in the city come to life. If you have a
    restaurant open in the evening or at night, make sure there is a pub nearby,
    or it's certain to fail. There is almost no better guarantee for good sales
    than a few pubs near your restaurant.
    
    University
    Whenever there is a university, students can't be far off. The building
    itself is only interesting for this one target group, but the students spend
    most of their time here. There is only one university in every city, and
    it's open from mornings to evenings. If there are a lot of students in the
    city, a location near the university can be very lucrative.
    
    Office Block
    For some Yuppies, the office is their home. They start showing up in their
    small offices early in the morning. Yuppies are working hard on their
    careers somewhere almost all day. But there is always time for a quick
    business meal. Don't understimate the well-to-do Yuppies potiential in
    office areas.
    
    Factory/Harbour
    In many cities, Louts make up a higher than average proportion of the
    population. In the mornings, they slave in the factories without exception.
    Since the working time is distributed over almost the whole day and hard
    work makes a person hungry, you can always rake in the money here. The
    harbour is basically, another workplace - just like the factory. Naturally,
    you will find one only in cities that are located on rivers or on the
    seacoasts.
    
    Bank
    This building is naturally frequented most often by Yuppies and Big Shots.
    But normal people often pay a visit to this money temple to take care of
    their bank accounts. But the short opening hours mean that proximity to a
    bank is only interesting before noon.
    
    Hotel
    Naturally, only Tourists live in hotels. Whether a location near a hotel is
    lucrative depends on how many tourists visit the city on average. If the
    city is well-known tourist magnet, then the locations near the hotels will
    of course be worth the trouble. If there's one thing Tourists do well, it's
    spend money!
    
    Stadium
    All cities are proud owners of a large stadium. Major sporting events
    regularly take place there. These always last for an entire quarter. During
    a sporting event of this nature, the whole city is on the go. Good pizza
    sales will only be possible near the stadium.
    
    City Symbol
    Every city has a city symbol. This is the easiest way to recognize the
    cities immediately. It goes without saying that the city symbols are
    particularly popular with the Tourists. But Students also enjoy the cultural
    aura of these architectural masterpieces.
    
    Opera
    This is where the city's upper class gets together to see each other and to
    be seen. But Students, Tourists and other people interested in the arts go
    to the performances as well. The operas, much like the cinema, is quite a
    magnet to draw crowds. But there is somewhat more emphasis on the well-to-do
    of the city.
    
    City Administration
    This is the mayor's office. This is also where the officals of the Health
    Office, the Employment Office and the Tax Office work. When they go out on
    their regular rounds, this is the building they start from. Companies come
    most often to the Employment Office here to see if they can find any new
    employees. If you want to win the mayor's favour, a small increase in the
    donation here is just the thing...

    Questions
    
    1. How do you get a gourmet star?
    
       I don't have the exact formula for getting a gourmet star. Basically, you
       should have a popular restaurant, well-trained staff, best quality of
       furishings and ingredients.... well, you get the point.
    
    2. I already have the best furnishings and best restaurant of the year,
       doesn't these medals mean a star?
    
       No, a gourmet star can only be given by the mayor.
    
    3. Is a gourmet star reached by big shot assessment?? Because thereís a
       notice in the major profiles section that stars come from big shot
       assessment: 70 that means I must achieve the 70 point right?
    
       They are affected by big shots although by how much i dun know. 70 is
       only if the mayor likes you the most among the competitors, which means
       you will have to bribe him. The default value before getting a gourmet
       star is 100 points. So if you haven't bribed the mayor yet, you better
       start now. It takes time for the mayor to lower his expectations of your
       restaurants. You can check the mayor's current expectations of you by
       clicking on the city hall.
    
    4. So Iíve made a restaurant for the big shots, that is giving the best
       furniture and the best recipes for them, eg: big shots like superior
       furniture right? But how come my modern furnitured restaurant have a
       higher point than the superior one?
    
       I can't answer that. I have the same problem too but I've noticed that
       the cleanliness and condition of your restaurant at the time of the visit
       will affect the mayor's rating. the higher the level of training for ur
       staff will also affect it somewhat...
    
    5. Is a first class restaurant means big pizzeria?
    
       I don't think it does but the restaurants that have won a gourmet star
       for me are all large.
    
    6. I have five restaurant in the city all of them devoted to big shots. Is
       it better if I have only one or two restaurant in the city so the major
       can visit my restaurant more?
    
       Definately, it means that the mayor will concentrate his visits on those
       few restaurants.
