  • Suggested order for district jobs

    There are many ways to approach UWE. This is just one suggestion: to do the first 4 districts in the order that produces the most stars per unit of energy. If you haven't been playing very long, you might want to think about switching things up. If you're already level 1000, you are probably past all this already.

    Instead of just doing them in the normal order - Slums, Tracks, Midtown, Meatpack - and doing the Bronze, then Silver, then Gold for each, I suggest trying to get the most bang for whatever "buck" you have in terms of E. I was surprised by the results and wonder that other players think.

    I am willing to break the rules right off the bat. Before you do the Bronze Slums Secret Jobs, so the Slums Silver Jobs.

    Here's my data ... sorry it pastes in such a mess.

    District is the district name - with a I, II, or III suffix for Bronze, Silver, and Gold tiers. "Sec" is the secret jobs.
    5* Energy is not a drink. It's the amount of energy needed to five-star the district.
    Stars is the number of stars you'd get by 5*-ing the district. It's 5 times the number of jobs.
    E/Star is energy per star. A lower number means you get the stars faster.
    s2 is the sequence that gets the stars for the least energy.
    s1 is the order you'd do them in if you completed each district and its secret jobs in sequence.
    diff is the difference in s2 and s1. A negative number means you do it later in s2, a positive number means you do it sooner.

    Code:
    District	5* Energy	stars	E/Star	s2	s1	diff
    Slums I	 605 	30	 20 	1	1	0
    Slums II	 1,210 	30	 40 	2	2	0
    Slums Sec I	 2,445 	40	 61 	3	4	-1
    Slums III	 2,420 	30	 81 	4	3	1
    Slums Sec II	 4,890 	40	 122 	5	5	0
    Midtown Sec I	 6,900 	40	 173 	7	16	-9
    Midtown I	 8,200 	45	 182 	6	13	-7
    Tracks I	 5,890 	30	 196 	8	7	1
    Tracks Sec I	 8,200 	40	 205 	9	10	-1
    Slums Sec III	 9,780 	40	 245 	10	6	4
    Meatpack I	 13,060 	50	 261 	11	19	-8
    Meatpack Sec I	 10,810 	40	 270 	12	22	-10
    Midtown Sec II	 13,800 	40	 345 	14	17	-3
    Midtown II	 16,400 	45	 364 	13	14	-1
    Tracks II	 11,780 	30	 393 	15	8	7
    Tracks Sec II	 16,400 	40	 410 	16	11	5
    Meatpack II	 26,120 	50	 522 	17	20	-3
    Meatpack Sec II	 21,620 	40	 541 	18	23	-5
    Midtown Sec III	 27,600 	40	 690 	20	18	2
    Midtown III	 32,800 	45	 729 	19	15	4
    Tracks III	 23,560 	30	 785 	21	9	12
    Tracks Sec III	 32,800 	40	 820 	22	12	10
    Meatpack III	 52,240 	50	 1,045 	23	21	2
    Meatpack Sec III	 43,240 	40	 1,081 	24	24	0
    There are a couple of details I want to point out. First, you can't do the secret jobs for a tier until you've completed that tier of the district. In Midtown, that means you can't do Midtown Sec II at 345 energy per star until you finish Midtown II at 364 energy per star. Sometimes you gotta deal with limitations.

    Finishing Slums in order costs a lot more energy than I thought. Slums Sec III gives 40 stars at 245 per (on average). Midtown I gives 45 stars at 182 energy - you get 5 more stars for 1500 less E. If you don't have much E, that kind of thing will make a difference, right?

    Can anyone tell me how to make the columns line up? Do I need to use an image? Thanks for reading.
    Just a bit analytical.

    Re: Suggested order for district jobs

    That's great.
    One thing that jumps out for me is the fact that in term of E/star, Midtown is better than Tracks all the time!
    So if one wants to maximise the E/*, doing midtown II before tracks II is better. Also for lower lvl, you may get more cash out of midtown than tracks.
    It may need a lot of work, but could you add downtown I and may be westside I to the table? To see if it's better to stay silver/gold on the first 4 zones and then go higher, or do a mix.
    Cheers

      Updating the spreadsheet will take some time, but I can tell you that Downtown and Westside Bronze tiers fit before Tracks Silver (Track 2). The district jobs for D and W are high in E, but the secret jobs are low. Taking the jobs as a set puts them in that spot. They cost 366 and 367 E/Star respectively.

      Great question - I'd have never guessed that it's better to do those before you do Tracks 2.

              This is definitely useful information to have.
              I knocked up quick page on the wiki with the corresponding bot change to keep it up-to-date. It gives somewhat different numbers, presumably because you're using different numbers for total energy cost for some jobs than is in the wiki. Of course it also covers all the areas.

              If you have numbers for the total energy for jobs that the wiki doesn't (or better numbers than the wiki has), I'd be happy to do the legwork of entering them on the wiki...

                Re: Suggested order for district jobs

                Squiff, I'll look at it. One thing I'm trying to refine is the combined E per star for doing a district AND the secret job, as a package. A district like Westside has a brutal energy requirement to 5* compared to the earlier districts - but it has TWO secret jobs and they are wicked cheap.

                After the Fight Club, er, Battle Arena I'll polish the numbers and talk to you about how to best present them to help people.

                PS. The only time my numbers don't match yours is when yours say it takes 265 energy (hypothetical case I'm making up) but the job takes 12 energy. I use some number fo whole turns, and get a bigger number than the site does. I've compared my numbers to those, but sometimes it's late and I drift into New Math.
