In this post, I will write about the various tips and guides for Biz Builder Delux.
(1) When building your stores (types of shop, e.g. video game, bakery, and so on), build them according to the order which they are being unlocked.
This is to allow you to unlock the ‘extra features’ related to the ‘earlier’ stores, which you will require for ‘later’ stores. For example, you need to open the Burger store to unlock the back room related items. If you choose to skip the Burger store and open the Bakery first, you would have missed those items. Yes, the Bakery cannot unlock the back room related items!
(2) When choosing to open a new store, choose a location that have an existing city item, such as a house, a factory or a land with high value.
This will allow your store to have more (additional) space to start with, as compared to other locations. By having more space, not only do you get more free space to design your store, but also more furnishing points to place items.
(3) When given the opportunity to spend your ‘hearts’ to conduct searches, always and always use the characters with the highest Dexterity.
This is to ensure that you obtain the best search result because in this game, items are really useful yet buying them in shops is definitely not a worthy deal (too overpriced!).
(4) Always check your customers’ budget to ensure that your products are not too overpriced, or else your customers will not make the purchase.
To ‘increase’ your customers’ budget, you can setup ATM machines within your store.
(5) Make sure that you setup rest areas in your store whenever you have enough capacity for it.
This is to allow your customers to form into groups while they are resting. When a group is formed, all the customers within the group will receive a boost in their budget and has a higher tendency to buy more items (this is pretty logical, since they have more budget).
To tell whether a group was formed, simply take note of the aura surrounding the customer.
(6) When placing furnishings, take note of furnitures that have a ‘Star’ on them. These are special furnishings that will occasionally trigger aura on your customers along the way.
(7) Always try to satisfy your customers (objectively) as early in the game as possible.
This is to ensure that your customers’ level increase earlier in the game, as a higher level customer will visit your store more often and with higher spending capacity (budget).
(8) Restart your stores often as it gives you extra income and extra store furnishings, such as Staff Room. Also, it can boost the value of future stores in the area.
(9) If you restart the game with an existing save data, you will be able to unlock various bonuses. For instance, you can unlock extra manager, stores, products, furnishings, Equipment and many other items.
For instance, you can unlock extra manager, stores, products, furnishings, Equipment and many other items.
It is recommended to reset at least 3 managers to level 1 (you can do so by changing their type using Management Goods Type Book) when creating a replay data.
A level 1 manager’s wage is very cheap, which makes it very easy to meet the store’s quota.
It is also a good idea to prepare a level 999 manager with good stats when creating replay data. He can be kept in your waiting room until Year 4, when the 1st Mayor Election starts. From then, promote him as the Mayor so that the town can be developed faster.
(10) To power level your manager to level 999, you can try the following combos that can be made by special combination of upgrade items,
- Game Lore (LL) => Kid’s Sketch (L) => Picture Book (L) => Game Cartridge (M) => Game Lore (LL)
- Game Lore (LL) => Old Notebook (L) => Antiques Guide (L) => Game Cartridge (M) => Game Lore (LL)
- Any (LL) => Antiques Guide (L) => Parchment (4L) => Any (LL)
- Vegetables (LL) => Any (L) => Seasonings (M) => Asian Cooking (L) => Sports DVD (M) => Vegetables (LL)
- Meat (LL) => Any (L) => Grain (M) => Meat (LL)
It is possible to rank up staff/manager from lvl 1 to 999 in just one Power Up session with the above method. You just need a combo of around 3000% and around 500,000 base experience.
If Combos build up faster than the base experience, then break the combo and add high experience upgrade items like Semi-Rare Books (such as Recipe Book or Asian Cooking).
