New Ideas, New feature, This is a little of what players want and would love to see added in the game

This is from 20 friends/players that we have compiled together, I know you are very busy in the office but we would love to see some of these idea's created and in the game.

1} User manual ~ that explains how things work--like the pot of gold, Mr clucky, so on....

2} Being able to sell the food in the gift box for coins

3}To see the challenges people are doing. you could then ask for help from those people doing the same jobs as you instead of random requests

4} Put our neighbours in some kind of order to make getting helpers easier...let us choose who is on our list...example...I have no one under level 75...and I know I have a lot of neighbours...

5} Change the way we select our friends to send gifts or ask for help with catering missions. While its nice to be able to see who's who, it would be better if we could search by name instead of by picture.

6} "1 click" Cook Stations and a "Cleaning" feature. this to include "Cleaning" all of our Cook Stations

7} Friends names to be "Alphabetized"..... It drives me crazy, and wastes so much of my energy to go "page by page" trying to "find" people

8} Diner contest, ~ Contests for our Diners And, it would be nice to have the "Camera" icon, so we could Post Pictures of our Diners.

9} A request button/gift box acceptance button that we can click on, to go through all Gifts, Requests, etc....while we are actually inside our Diners, instead of reloading to accept new gifts.

10} Diner specials on the food like a managers special or daily special

11} Getting credit like extra coins when you successfully help people on the drive thru orders/catering's

12} If the rewards for serving a dish had some kind of logical connection with their cook times... we should be rewarded more of cooking longer/more expensive dishes

13} To add and remove neighbours that we choose, as low level players cannot be accessed

14} Also it would be nice to see who is doing what catering when you click on the car and be able to offer to help them, rather than wait for a request

15} Stove cleaner, and 1 click load all same dish

16} sous chef/More than one head chef please

17} Automatic Table cleaner/or busboy that auto cleans when there are dirty tables rather than having to click on the tables first

18} Delete helpers who are not actually helping with drive thru orders after hours of accepting the help request we send.

19} Sharper text; Is it possible to see the numbers needed for the caters. A lot of times, I can't read the number I've cooked because it's within the picture. like 105/150. I can't read the 105 part, the first number.

20} To be able to sell gifts for coins if that's possible.

21} A Mystery Customer...
one that rates our diners weekly or monthly on full/empty cooktops and full/empty serving stations and gifts us accordingly...kinda like how the Free Gift video feature rewards us but something we all have access to unlike the Free Gift feature that we do not all get.

22} To Be able to delete the side missions I don't want to do. As there are many nations playing this game, it would be nice not to have to do the American Pride missions & so forth (please don't get me wrong, I love my many American Friends & I've been to The States 3 times, but, I have Aussie Pride, not American). Halloween is not celebrated here & neither is Thanksgiving. I know there are many players from different parts of the world who don't have these celebrations either.

23} Are they going to actually add the "drivethru" that we've all worked so hard for?

24} If you do a goal you can gain special items that help in the game, when you placed the item all your meals would cook 15% faster!

25} The cursor\clicking to be accurate, you click on an an oven, decoration, etc. and you pick up something beside it, behind it, in front of it, etc.
wasted cash (drop menu comes down instead appliance being clicked on) wasted food by throwing a serving table into inventory when I was actually pointing to and clicking on an appliance to cook something. .

26} More decorations, all countries to be represented not just Americans.

Thank you on behalf play demand,
chrissy,

  • Hi Chrissy (et all)

    This is fantastic feedback, thank you very much!

    A fair few of these were actually on our upcoming to-do list anyway, some others we hadn't considered and will definitely be exploring in future.

    I can't give any specifics about what we're working on, but at least some of these should be coming in the next month for sure :)

    Best Regards
    Rowan
    • Thank you for the response, its great news to hear that some of these ideas will be 'coming soon'
      your team do a grand job of keeping the players updated and giving the players new things in the game.
      bravo to you all.
      I will look forward to seeing the new developments.
      All the best,
      Chrissy
    • I think they should still keep the American goals but add other countries as well..we are the world :) My biggest concern is the amount that items cost especially when we first start...i am all about dropping the price of items/food as more will stay cuz they have the money to buy items.. Ty so much for your time and thank you for all you created for your diner life family

    speeding up dishes~ (this is an Idea i have thought of) maybe when a friend visits you, they could click on your appliances and speed up a dish by a percentage, for example a dish that takes 12 hours lets say the pink frosted cupcakes when a friend clicks that oven this dish is then speed up by 1 hour, or 10 minutes, ect...
    maybe this could work? this could get more visiting occurring and neighbours getting more active with each other.

  • Hi all! This is indeed some great feedback. We are planning a new release of content fairly soon, so I will look into seeing what we can do on this list. Some things will be fairly easy, others more difficult... so we may need some clarification.

    (To serve the salads on. This to free up the serving tables) To include serving the salad (that is currently in the game)
    and to include Consumables,
    maybe something like these here, which in turn would include other countries as in the original list above, ~ Caesar salad, Salad Niçoise - the French players will love this one,

    [here's hoping we pass, might need to Clean your neighbours tables too].

    5} Napkins.... Napkins holder, (this would most likely have to feature on a stand/a table of some form
    (With Playdemands logo) hand these customers a napkin ~ could even gain 1xp for you Effort :) Or maybe mission to design a napkin!

    6} Interesting Drive Thru Order ~ Gandhi Jayanti (celebrated in India, 2nd october)

    Lamb Balti, Vindaloo, Chicken Bhuna, Tikka Rogan Josh, Chapatti (Fried Flat Bread).

  • I agree with all of Chrissy's sugestions and that one by
    Nina Hecate about the Bubble Raider banner, seriously does it have to be that big?? I was goping to try the game but once I started DL and it was in my face all day long I changed my mind. you might want to scale it back some. I know I, and my friends Chrissy included, would appreciate the extra play area for Diner Life.

  • Not sure if anyone mentioned this. I would like to add to the list a simple request. Although, I do not know how much longer I will be playing the game.

    I think we should have the option of waiting on our own tables, not matter how may wait staff we have. Not everyone has a lot of neighbors, or want them. It would be nice if we had this option, instead of just standing around.

  • 1.I think it would be great if we could get missions again. I am on level 107 and have not have any missions for a very long time..

    I would be nice if we could have some kind of holiday missions.

    Also, I think it would be really great if we could assign station to our staff, just like real restaurants do. The staff are really all over the place, and it is not very efficient. In fact, it's kind of annoying. Example: There is a staff member standing right next to a personholding a menu, and another staff member has to travel from the other side of the restaurant to serve the person, while the other staff member just stands there next to the customer and does nothing. And Kay is useless. lol Very not cool!

  • Order cooking tally For Drive in orders

    It's difficult figuring out what your Drive in helpers are cooking if they aren't able to communicate what they are cooking. I have a suggestions. can you put in parenthesis on the order what is being cooked. ie. 0/80 Turkey dinners will now look like 0/80 (15) turkey dinners that lets everyone know a total of 15 are being cooked by all of your helpers.
    This will help us overlapping what we are fixing so we can quit wasting time and resources.
