I think I've already mentioned that my current method of dealing with stress is to find a cutesy spreadsheet game and then min-max the crap out of it. World Cruise Story was one of the first Kairosoft games I played, right after Game Dev Story as a matter of fact, so I was surprised to pick it up again recently and find it to be really, really hard. Either my brain has regressed in some way or... well, I'm not sure I want to finish that sentence.
So I've been starting over a new game every day for the past two weeks whilst grappling with pain pills and surgery and I've finally hit on a strategy that makes me warm and fuzzy: it's all in the initial floor planning, and the trick is to house the passengers in tiny cabins on the outside deck until you get more floors. Hahahahahahahahaha. (They actually like it out there, but that makes it no less amusing to me.) So! Another day, another Kairosoft spreadsheet shared out in Ana's Google documents. The floor plan stuff in Sheet 1 is all mine but I did rely on the official guide for some dimensional planning, and the stat bonuses in Sheet 2 are all credited to this wordpress blog.
So, er, um... enjoy! I'm not sure why I keep making these except that I have some kind of biological compulsion to write user guides that no one will ever read. Maybe someday they'll isolate that gene.
