Global Trust (Tycoons) / Eden Initiative (Ecos)[]

"May you humbly accept these 3 Vipers as a peace offering from the Corporation." - Rufus Thorne

  • Main Island (East of Ark): Standard fare. Ecos have the option of purchasing Vegetable fertility from an NPC and running the entire operation from one Island.
  • Burgers/Sushi Island (West): Vegetable fertility can be found on this Island for Convenience/Health Food production.
  • Plastics Island (North West): Crude Oil deposits for Plastics manufacturing can be located at this Island.

"It seems this mission was over with before it had even begun!" - Yana Rodriguez

Essentially, 2 options are available to complete this mission:

  1. Select the reward from Rufus Thorne (3 Vipers), settle 300 Engineers (12 Apartments) to unlock Techs and buy a Trimaran at a cost of 15,000 Credits.
  2. Select the reward from Yana Rodriguez (T38 Ocean Glider), settle 750 Employees, upgrade to Engineers, produce 45t Weapons and 60t Iron, then build 3 Vipers.

Option #1 is a much simpler requirement to fulfill since option #2 requires actual production time. Either way, you will need to build 2 production chains, advance to the Engineering class and build a Hospital; so it's not worth squandering resources on Weapons (Ammunition) production.

  • Place the Port Authority on the South Eastern beach of the Main Island and a Repair Dock adjacent to it; although the latter is unnecessary when micromanaging the Vipers casually.
  • A shipyard is not strictly required. Once a Port Authority is built and the requested Goods delivered in exchange for Vipers, the original Warship may be used for trade.

"How long have I been unconscious? Is the mission over already?" - Josh Steen
