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.

Found mostly at: 0600 hrs - 1200 hrs     School
                 1800 hrs - 0600 hrs     Residence


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.

Found mostly at: 0600 hrs - 1200 hrs, 1500 hrs - 1800 hrs     Factory

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.

Found mostly at: 0000 hrs - 0600 hrs     Residence
                 0600 hrs - 1800 hrs     Office


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.

                 1800 hrs - 0000 hrs     Opera


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.

Found mostly at: 2100 hrs - 0900 hrs     Residence


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.

                 2100 hrs - 0300 hrs     Pub

=====
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

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.

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.
