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
