Aside from the basic factories are there any that standout as repeaters, say Perfume as an example?


I'd like to concentrate upgrading efforts on just a few for the time being. I'm still building factories at my current level and want to have more choices to pick from on the Regatta Task Board.

@Daneborg
Regatta Prep list
This is a list with only tasks and their points for regular regatta and grouped by factories and levels.
You can see at a glance which factories have 1 or more tasks and what level the tasks will be doable by you or your coop members.
We hope this will come in handy for you!

Thanks @Lil Bear but I'm interested in whether anyone has seen one, maybe two, factories come up repeatedly.

I think the only one I've seen multiple times is Tailor for different garments and have focused on upgrading it after generally doing all the others.

I do regatta about every week.  I have seen many things get called for...  Perhaps you should read about mill upgrades at fandom for more clear ideas than my fuzzy brain?

@Daneborg - upgrading helps in so many ways... all shelves, then 50% speed sugar bakery dairy fabric paper... and then I worked towards 30% speed all, and still working towards 50% for all... never ending need for ingots there, lol

the prep lists for regatta and ROC seem to have same products/factories... so I tend to keep 4 to 6 shelves stocked and use a few shelves between races to stock other items... on Monday, I restock the few shelves back up with race items.

my coopmate and I split the items during regattas... he does the 1s item on the duo factory chart, I do the 2nd. for tailor, we each do 2 items. for fast food, 1 of us does baked potatoes, the other does hamburgers and sandwiches... etc... we have found this to help.

we also stock up before races on fish, shrimp, olives and banana bread...

during races, we get random tasks... last week grape juice, tacos and pink boots... but it is different usually from race to race, but so far... always items on the prep lists.

it can be hard to get enough sugars/cheese/ingredients to prep all factories, all shelves... which is why I keep several shelves stocked, even between races... so prep helps, but the game still will throw tasks that are not pre-prepped... like a 2nd tacos task just after I did a taco task... so am thankful for the ability to dump...

except with mystery tasks... can't see what is in the task, so I do mystery tasks sparingly... if we are far enough ahead or it is morning so I don't get a feed task just as I'm trying to go to sleep... lol...  I am not trying to rack up yacht points, so don't care if I get higher points.... I usually don't want to risk an 18hr silk task... or get 2 zoo tasks in a row... which has happened... otherwise I would love doing mystery tasks....

@just4fun The penny just dropped! Your explanation made it clear how to use the Prep Chart Lil Bear linked to. Based on your Town level those are the products you may need for a Mfg Task.

Racing solo I could do halves or gamble and load up all one product like the instant ones.

The chart be a guide to where benches are needed most too.

Sometimes I need to hear the same msg twice but phrased differently for it to sink in. Thanks all!

yes... the instant ones for regatta work gr8! with ROC, we try to have some of each, like tailor, we both have 2 each... because we are on opposite sides of world, and can start off if the other person is sleeping... but tell ya, last ROC race, ROC kept hitting on blue shirts.... lol... so when we got a stupid super long task, like 90 tacos, that is when we cleared more shelves, say 6...and kept 2 pepper sauces on hand...

I don't think there is any particular right or wrong way... but I do think any prepping helps. prepping gives a significant advantage over non-prepped teams; allows us to jet ahead...

Yes, between coats, sweaters, blue hats, and brown hats, we see a lot of tasks for tailor factory goods. 

We also seem to get a lot of tasks for trucks and modeling clay at the plastics factory.  Another one you might want to upgrade is fast food - cheeseburgers and triangle sandwiches. (Speeding those up are also nice for make things with cheese and make things with butter tasks, assuming we ever get another normal lab event.)

But it's not just about factory tasks.  At one point I stopped doing any other upgrades until I got jam down to 50% time.  I don't recall if I ever did a jam factory task, but helicopter orders were asking for them a lot and they all take a long time to make.  As I work copters, I try to load a replacement item if needed to stay at or above 11.  I found over and over it was the jam queue that filled up first. I got annoyed at needing to take a copter break because I couldn't load any more jam, so I wanted them as fast as they could get (which is still pretty long for most of them).

Another one that got priority from me is snack.  The only regatta task is rice balls, but trains ask for popcorn and corn chips really often and they usually want a lot of them. And, once trains get in the corn chip mood, it's not just mine that want them, but also people asking for corn chip help on their trains.

@catlover88 prepping for regatta simply means being ready for whatever comes.  Saving clovers for chest tasks, saving sufficient mining tools for as many mining tasks as you can get as these are quick and easy, having factories upgraded for time and shelves (actually shelves can be more helpful than time as you can make 8 items before taking a task), not filling your queues on regatta day so you can take a manufacturing task in that factory, have raw materials like textiles, paper, sugar and syrup for manufacturing tasks.  I don't start regatta for several hours so I send ships to fructose in the morning, then for either olives or fish with ingots so I can take a one minute ship task (dumping others).  Good luck in regatta today.

@catlover88 if you look at the chart for regatta prep... look at each factory. the chart shows which items can be in a task. for example, syrups in the sugar factory. some factories have only 1 item and some have 2 or more.

the chart gives 3 different types of regatta task.... regular, "red star" simplified task and a 3rd kind (can't remember if for 'combo' or 'mystery' type tasks.

Each regatta season features 3 special types of tasks. This season is "mine tools" and "mystery" tasks, for example.... so I am using the chart suggestions on the regular row to "prepare ahead and hold ready on my factory shelves".

For example, I have the rice balls and olive oils ready in the "single factory" suggestions. when the chart suggests multiple items, I picked 1 to prepare. for example I prepared tacos, not hot sauce.... in the hope that there will be a taco task... if a hot sauce task appears on task board, will delete hot sauce task, because my factory is loaded wit tacos...

or 1 of my coopmates will do the hot sauce task because their factory is pre-loaded with hot sauce. We coordinate between us for who preps which items.

(for single factory items, we all prep the single items like rice balls. but one of us does tacos and the other preps hot sauce ahead.

prepping ahead helps us get through tasks faster. for some items, it becomes instant (for upgraded factories with as many shelves as possible.)

As explained above, the table shows us which items we might get in regatta tasks and how many we would need for the 135 point task. 

To prep for factory tasks, for example, the chart shows we need 9 blue sweaters for 135 points.  You can make 7 or 8 of them ahead of time and leave them sitting on your factory shelves.  Then, if the blue sweater task comes up, take the task, collect the sweaters from your shelves, then you need to make only one or two more to finish the task.  (Some players will fill all their shelves ahead, some prefer to leave one shelf free for making other items.)

Similarly, you can prep boats for the island products, sending 4 boats with ingots to collect 12 olives or 10 coconuts, or 3 boats for 9 shrimp.  This way, the shrimp, olive or coconut task becomes a 1 minute task, if you are lucky enough to get it.  Personally,  I like having 9 shrimp waiting in 3 boats and the fourth boat with 3 watermelons.

Note:  Prepping factory items ahead of time does not work for lab event make things with syrup type tasks.  Those items made with syrup count only when the item is loaded into your factory.  For regatta tasks, the items are counted when collected from the factory.

How do you know it will be 'blue sweaters' they will 'ask' for and not something else like blue hats, etc?

@catlover88 You don't know what they will ask for but you might not want to make what I do.

I end up with all the wrong stuff. Likewise if you see me at the grocery store get in another line. lol

Seriously, just go with your gut and make 6 (8 if you have upgraded benches) but don't pre-load the manufacturing queue. You may get lucky and at worst you'll have 6 of something you might not need right away but they won't go to waste either.

so, the blue sweaters item is 1 of the factory the regatta might ask 4 different items; coats, blue hats, feather hats and blue sweaters.

when I race alone or for the Race of Champions, I make 2 of each before the r egattas and before race of champions.

when I do regatta with a partner, 1 of us makes blue and feather hats.
the other person makes sweaters and coats before the race...

so, the chart shows the items that might show up as a task during r egattas. we delete tasks we can't do... like a 2nd zoo or taco task right after I just did it.... overall, the chart shows which items might show up which can help get the Race done faster... just a strategy, and if you pre-made a different item, no worries, just dump unwanted undoable tasks...
