Write down the recipes that you create yourself to avoid making the same one twice. Use the most expensive products to create it. Your own creations will be asked for more than the ones created in the game. You can earn plenty of money.
Every factory will start by producing the following items. To change the factories to produce other products, click on the "Change Recipe" button and select the product you wish to make. You must pay money to have the factory outfitted with the new equipment:
FACTORY - PRODUCT Zurich - Chocolate Bars Cape Town - Coffee Tokyo - Infusions San Francisco - Truffles Toronto - Coffee Blends Wellington - Exotics
Be careful when traveling, especially toward the early part of the game. Travel expenses cost money and steadily increase. There are certain locations you must travel to in order to purchase ingredients, test recipes, etc., but do not have a shop available to buy your inventory. When going to such a location, make sure you have enough money to make the trip back. You cannot earn anything while at those location. If you get stuck there, the game is over. The following is a list of locations with no shops:
Reykjavik Uluru Xunantunich Gobi Desert Falkland Islands Las Vegas
When all five trays are filled with ingredients, the machine will use the ingredients and clear all the trays. This is useful because the game sends ingredients out of order, but always sends them in batches of five, which is the correct proportion to fill all five trays (until you miss or send one to the recycler). Once all the trays are filled and cleared, there is a slight delay before the game tallies the increase in your production total. Just before filling the last tray, miss a couple on purpose, then fire the final one to complete the set. The trays are used but before it tallies them, fire several rapid misses to make eight mis-fires to end production. Click "Try again." When you begin filling trays again, the completed set from the previous session begins to tally. This way, five extra production cases can be obtained.
