LOGistICAL - Sublime Logistical Strategy Puzzling

Welcome, Khrest! lol I think you'll like the group, and as you progress and hit certain marks, you can post in the bragging thread and your name will get a new color so everyone can see how experienced you are.

I dipped back into this a few days ago, and I remembered that I'm at a point where I'm not sure where I can expand to next. Basically all my roadworks contracts are for towns that I either can't get to, or am missing resources for. I think I've explored all the red circles I can reach, but I'll have to re-check. It's hard because I've got footholds in a bunch of areas, so it feels like playing needle in a haystack to try and find the next direction to go. I've basically got too many options, and the UI certainly doesn't make it easy to sort things out.

I just found this flowchart of countries, so that might help narrow down my focus a bit.

So where are you these days? NZ, Oz, SK, Japan, Germany?

Or are you also in, say, Russia and NK?

Also, asking in the Discord (use spoiler tags there for specific content in questions) is always helpful. They have folks who have finished the game…

Oh, I'm well past there. At this point, I've got access to most of Europe up through Italy, but not into France/Spain, through Russia, a good chunk of the Balkans, a little bit in SE Asia, a bit in Africa, and western USA out to the Rockies. I's opened up the port of Vancouver, so I floated a 20t truck in there and have been shipping things in to start opening up western Canada.

It seems like I should be able to get through to the eastern US, but I haven't figured out how. I haven't found a way to ship stuff into the US, and don't know if I should be able to go all the way east, or if I should be looking for a port in the east and meet in the middle. Feels like I need to build some factories in the US, but if my understanding's right, I'd need to get those goods in and start filling businesses and towns with them before I can build. But those rules have always been a little fuzzy to me.

Maybe Scandinavia? Africa? Some good stuff in Africa... How about Western Australia?

Have you grabbed yourself an airplane? I hear there are good ones in Europe...

Veloxi, Alpo did it on Zen, and Silden on regular. Verified with Sacada. Both finished in February I think.
