I believe that the majority of Restaurant City players are using Restaurant City Market as one of the most helpful tool for trading ingredients. icon:f_f_banana icon:a3_leftright icon:f_f_apple icon:a3_leftright icon:f_bread icon:a3_leftright icon:f_medamayaki

icon:body2_a_paper In case, for those who do not have any idea on what's Restaurant City Market is icon:h_hatena01 
Click icon:body3_te03 to know more before you continue icon:face2_catfaceicon:body3_te03 

Today...I would just want to say...

icon:o_p22_mail2TRADE FAIRLY PLEEEAAAASSSEEEEicon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_cryingicon:h_kira02 

Don't you ever get frustrated when you get 20 over trade requests with all UNFAIR trade requests, moreover from the same person all in a row icon:mark3_sign02 icon:face2_bearingicon:h_annoy

Restaurant City Market is created as a reference for all Restaurant City residents to trade. icon:f_medamayakiicon:a3_leftrighticon:f_c_softicon:body2_a_good

Having Restaurant City Market, we get to know each other needs and if it matched, we request to add that person to our friend list in Facebook. icon:face5_boyicon:mark3_sign05icon:face5_girl

We also have a STATISTICS graph to let us know which are the most wanted and unwanted ingredientsicon:mark3_sign01icon:f_c_cake icon:a2_up icon:f_kinoko02 icon:a2_down

The STATISTICSicon:mark3_sign04icon:a2_down2


Oh yes, this really helps a lot and make our trading business so much easier to be doneicon:mark3_sign01
Real thanks to the founder of Restaurant City Marketicon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign04 Yannick Delwiche

However, why do everyone tends to TRADE UNFAIRLY STILL icon:mark3_sign02icon:mark3_sign02 icon:face2_angryicon:h_annoy

Why why WHYicon:mark3_sign02icon:mark3_sign02 icon:face2_bearing icon:h_hatena04

Let's say, even if I've set "Give" for cream or milk and "Want" for noodles or corn, that doesn't mean the above trade request is's not a fair trade... icon:face4_kao-a15

People should know, noodles, corns, saffron, and all are easier to get. 


Coz, menu that needs these ingredients is not much. Maybe only 1 menu that needs them which literally means that everybody yearn to give them away~icon:mark3_sign01icon:face2_gawkicon:h_sweat02

For example, 

Noodle is only used in icon:f_noodleYakibuta Ramenicon:f_noodle   (Noodle needed x10)

Corn is only used in icon:f_x_coffeSweetcorn Soupicon:f_x_coffe  (Corn needed x10)

Saffron is only used in icon:an_honeSeafood Paellaicon:an_hone  (Saffron needed x10)

Compare to, icon:w_5_l_thunder

Cream is used in icon:no01Pumpkin Soup, icon:no02Sweetcorn Soup, icon:no03Creme Brulee,  icon:no04Banana Split, icon:no05Sundae, icon:no06Pomegranate Parfait and icon:no07Vanilla Hot Chocolateicon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03 icon:f_x_coffeicon:f_x_coffe02icon:f_c_softicon:f_x_b_osake02icon:f_c_prinicon:face2_deliciousicon:h_heart09  (Cream needed x70)

Milk is used in Cream of icon:no01Mushroom Soup, icon:no02Vegetable Chowder, icon:no03Mango Pudding, icon:no04Vanilla Panna Cotta, icon:no05Coffee, icon:no06Chocolate Milkshake, icon:no07Strawberry Milkshake and icon:no08Royal Bubble Teaicon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03icon:f_x_coffeicon:f_x_coffe02icon:f_x_coffe03icon:f_c_softicon:f_c_prinicon:f_c_cake2icon:f_c_cakeicon:f_x_baricon:face2_deliciousicon:h_heart09  (Milk needed x80)

7 or 8 times Cream & Milk is needed and without a fair trade, they are hard to collecticon:mark3_sign01

Example of some FAIR TRADE~icon:mark3_sign01which is rare~icon:mark3_sign03 icon:h_kira01


A fair trade doesn't need to be exactly trading with the ingredients in the same level according to the statistic. But at least something nearer and reasonableicon:mark3_sign01icon:f_f_bananaicon:a3_leftrighticon:f_f_apple icon:face2_happy01icon:body2_a_good

In the end, we still need to think about what we really need for our menu.icon:face2_delicious

Manage and think wiselyicon:mark3_sign03icon:o_flairicon:face2_happy02icon:body3_te03

Not something like thisicon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_gawkicon:h_okoru


Remember, this is just a selfish act and I don't think this will be a good trade.icon:face2_bearingicon:a2_down

It is understandable for people who are new,

but totally just hard to understand for people who are already in High - Max level who send all UNFAIR TRADE REQUESTicon:mark3_sign01 icon:face2_angryicon:h_annoy

1 unfair trade is still nice,

20~30 UNFAIR TRADE REQUESTS at one time is RUDEicon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03icon:face2_angryicon:h_annoyicon:h_annoy

Let's be nice when being a neighbor in Restaurant City icon:h_heart08 

TRADE FAIRLYicon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03 icon:f_f_bananaicon:a3_leftrighticon:f_f_apple icon:face2_delicious icon:h_heart08

How to Stack AGAIN~!

Hello everyone~! icon:face2_wink icon:h_kira01

I've got quite some comments and messages from my readers that they are still having some problems on "How to Stack" which I've introduced in my last tutorial. icon:face2_wobblyicon:h_sweat01icon:h_sweat01

Previous tutorials on How to Stack:

Stack Stack STACK for an IMPACT! - for smaller items (exp: flowers, speakers, TV, barrels, etc) icon:p_rose03 icon:o_tv icon:p_futaba 

How to stack for EXPERT! - for bigger items (exp: tables, chairs, pillars, room divider, fish tank, etc) icon:p_saboten icon:yb_toire icon:an_fish

For those who failed to STACK using the How to stack for EXPERT!  method, please refer to the following tutorial insteadicon:mark3_sign01icon:w_7_star 

This method is different from the previous one and so far, I have not failed stacking my furnitures using this methodicon:mark3_sign03 100% NO FAILicon:mark3_sign03 icon:p_hana01icon:p_hana02icon:p_hana03icon:p_hana04icon:p_hana05icon:p_hana06icon:p_hana07icon:p_hana08icon:p_hana13 icon:face2_happy02icon:h_kira01

icon:num_1_one First, place 2 items that you want to stack, 1 to a spot that you wish to stack and the other just anywhere for it is just to help you with the stacking process. 

Let's name the spot that you wish to stack on  as
and the spot which we use to help in the stacking process as "HELPING HAND SPOT". icon:body_a_biceps


icon:num_2_two Then, drag the page until the "TICK" covers the item on HELPING HAND SPOT.


icon:num_3_three Stack item placed on "STACKING SPOT" onto the item placed on "HELPING HAND SPOT". 


icon:num_4_four And, click straight away icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_catface icon:body2_a_good


icon:num_5_five You'll realized the item that you've stacked is GONEicon:mark3_sign01 OUT OF SIGHTicon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_shock

But don't worry, you'll get it backicon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_catfaceicon:h_sweat01


icon:num_6_six Get a new item that you wish to stack next and place it again on to the STACKING SPOT.


icon:num_7_seven You'll have to focus on this SPOTicon:mark3_sign01 This SPOT is where you're going to have your items all stackedicon:mark3_sign03 


icon:num_8_eight Repeat the STEPS icon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03 

Repeat from icon:num_3_three icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_4_four icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_5_five icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_6_six icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_7_seven

and repeat again from 
icon:num_3_three icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_4_four icon:mark3_sign04 icon:num_5_five 

From step 
icon:num_5_five, SAVE the game and RELOADicon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03 

WOALLLAAAHicon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_happy02icon:h_kira01icon:h_kira01icon:h_kira01

The items that you've stacked rebound back to their original spot and got STACKED icon:mark3_sign03icon:face5_kya-icon:body3_te02 icon:h_kira01

Yes, REBOUNDING is the main point of having the items all stacked in this tutorialicon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_smileicon:body3_te03

icon:p_hana05Any items in your inventory are stackableicon:mark3_sign03icon:p_hana06

icon:p_hana01icon:p_hana02Just keep on repeating all the steps with different items, any item that you wish to stack for your interioricon:mark3_sign01icon:p_hana04icon:p_hana05

icon:p_hana01You can even stack as many layers as you wish icon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03icon:p_hana13



Compare to the previous method which doesn't work at all sometimes, this newly created tutorial is definitely more reliable icon:mark3_sign01 icon:face2_confidenticon:body_a_bicepsicon:h_kira01

However, the previous method allows you to stack in a clear arrangement where you can arrange which item you would want them to stay at the bottom and which item you would want them to stay up above. icon:p_hana-ani01icon:p_hana-ani03icon:p_hana-ani04 icon:face2_happy02 icon:body2_a_good

Whereas , the method on this tutorial unfortunately do not have any fix arrangement that can be follow. It's random... icon:face2_think icon:w_2cloudyicon:w_3_ame

That is why, I prefer the previous method more if you never fail to stack using that method..icon:face2_catfaceicon:h_sweat01icon:h_sweat01

Whichever ways, get CREATIVE and start designing your restaurant with STACKING icon:mark3_sign03icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face5_kya-icon:body3_te03 icon:h_kira02icon:h_kira02icon:h_kira02

Oooo~, I've made this tutorial into a video tooicon:mark3_sign01icon:o_v_movie icon:h_heart08 

Refer to this if you are still confused with the above steps icon:mark3_sign03icon:face2_winkicon:body2_a_goodicon:h_kira01

GOOD LUCK~icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face2_happy01 icon:h_heart09
