Anyone successfully completed a local event? I have 67/1000 for the previous Chef Competition and 122/1000 for the current Chick-Con.
It's pretty hard to get to 1000.

Someone in this thread completed one, he received nothing though. My guess: you'll receive a Starship for completing all 45 local events!

Take the coordinates between two cities and plug them into a simple distance calculator like the one found here http://www.basic-mathematics.com/dis...alculator.html

Example:

Casablanca 5456 4124
Lagos 5808 4964

The distance between these two points is 910.7 miles. Super! My Kangaroo will just barely make it.
Took this concept and did a spreadsheet in Excel with distances between all cities - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/37476053/Po...distances.xlsx - sorted by region (with Oceana first cos that's where I started), then by city name within region. Bit quick and dirty and I (obviously) haven't checked all the figures, but the diagonals are zero as expected and I have spot-checked a few others and they seem to be right.

If I was to buy one red dot in South America, would you buy Lima or Rio? I'm expanding from N America, and already have Caracas.

TY.

I've recently bought Rio. Easier to get over the ocean that way.

GOD I love this game. The last time I was this addicted to a game was Championship Manager 01/02

When your theory starts working, and things are going well it's brilliant - yet there's still SO much to do!
Cm01/02... God I lost about 8 months of my life to that Work women hygiene. Everything went out the window lol

IMHO It would depend on what your current fleet has in terms of range and running costs.

The spreadsheet sdo62 made (off data from Vexorg) will give you the distances between each city as well as the population of the cities.

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...39069&page=260

So what I would do would calculate which city is closest , then look at how many of my current planes can actually get there. I'm at work right now so can't really plot everything out for you.

Also I do believe higher population cities do give you more jobs. Dallas has 6.4 M while New York has 10M. So if you can take New York but only if you have a good % of planes that have the range to service it.
