LOGistICAL - Sublime Logistical Strategy Puzzling

Searching for what, Peoj? You can for example select a truck, then grab a good and hold it to find places where it goes and where it is produced. Likewise with demand goods for towns.

I use the roller on the mouse to change zoom levels, that’s a very frequent think. Have had trouble with RSI in the past but not with this game.

If you are searching for roads, you can select an empty truck and then zoom up or down a level if the red circles don’t pop. Usually they do.

Anyway, there are tons of interface tricks so let us know what exactly you are trying to do and we’ll help. Did you know you can group vehicles together and select them as a group with a single button? And in the lower right, you can find a grid box of locations you recently visited so you don’t have to hunt down that town you were in two minutes ago. Stuff like that.

I don't remember Martinique needing stores. Multiple trucks all moving goods into the destination should be enough at the early game. Also trucks do get faster the more they are used, so make sure you are completing the small places of interest as well. I do believe there is a bit of a "grind" to get your truck(s) faster which then makes the delivery a bit better.

Yep. Almost got the island done. Small problem, though. Got two broken roads that need things unavailable on island, but to open the port I need alcohol, which needs sugar, which needs cane, which is on the wrong side of the roadworks. As is clay, which I need for one of the "camera" POI. And my only depot is on the wrong side of the broken road as well, so no more vehicles on the island for a while.

Are these new roadworks random?

I've a big fish consumer that I've set up with dump trucks feeding the consumer and others feeding worms to the fish industry.

It's been a minute since I played this game, though I keep meaning to go back to it.

What I can say is that, no, nothing is random in this game. It's all deliberate. Infuriatingly so.

Well, it is a puzzle game. But the Discord is very helpful, and many of us can answer questions incrementally too.

You will not be opening up that port for a while... a VERY long while. There is no "finishing" one location before the next. If you have the next country unlocked (you should if you are that far along Martinique), go there and start on it. If you are a strict completionist... its going to be a tough game for you

Uh oh. Despite all my best intentions when I start a game not to be a completionist, I get sucked in and then burnt out. Those Ubisoft games are the worst...and the best!

So "completionists" are who this game is for, you just have to think about it a bit differently. The big mistake is to think of each region as an independent puzzle. Instead, you'll bounce from area to area as you seek out resources and set up supply chains. But, as the game progresses, you'll find that you can complete regions, by doing all the towns and regions inside them. But that's actually mostly a mid to late game activity.

Heck, every time you work a contract you have a goal to complete.

So keep that in mind. I'm a total completionist and I love this game.

Happily busy in Korea now. A big THANKS to Robear for his help

Thanks. I've tried to find succinct explanations for how the game works, over the last few years, and you give me hope that I might be starting to explain it well enough for others to understand.

Past 7000 towns today!

Nice!!
