Desc:
My last geographical map in the Nice Job series. You'll have to figured out how to accomplish a save initial position. Every lake, sea and ocean will start filling up after 1 second, except for the tiny lake in the heart of China which will start after 1 minute to give you some extra time.

Title:
Nice Job 23: The Train Driver
Difficulty:
Hard
Creeper type:
Land only
Remarks:

Description:
Why not the longest railway in the world? This is what you asked yourself when you applied for a job as train driver on the Trans-Siberian Express.

The Russian railway actually consists out of 5 main lines:
- Trans-Siberian line (northern route to Vladivostok)
- Ural line (southern route to Vladivostok)
- Baikal Amur line (a strategic alternative to the Trans-Siberian line)
- Trans-Mongolian line (via Mongolia to Beijing)
- Trans-Manchurian line (via Manchuria to Beijing)

Please make sure each line makes a stopover at the desired locations. These include historic places like: Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Perm, Omsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Ulanbator.

Unfortunately the drone tech got stuck in the permafrost of northern Siberia, so it will take some effort to obtain it.

Thanks F0R!

Yeah, I know my time isn't very good, so I'm sure it will be beaten. Gives me a nice change to improve myself and get this map in the 15-20 minutes range.

I won't be around tomorrow, so I'll have a look Sunday how hard I'll have to work to get my #1 spot back. :P

Your turn  ;)  Again, (hard to change habits) I wasn't patient enough so a better time will come. I had a good start to get those four close techs.

16:13, not a bad time. Though, I can not wait to see what UpperKEES will get.

The first time I played I got slowed down because I did not build enough reactors.
The depletion hit me hard at the end. The second time I found the amount of energy
I needed to be about 15. That allowed me to attack the Creeper on two fronts.

well after seeing 22 scores i knew i could beat this, only had to restart once, man that start up is rough and scary.

Ah, you went for the mortar as well? I've not tried that myself yet, so maybe I should.

Not a bad time at all! I'll have to work hard to beat that one. Hopefully I'll have some time tomorrow for a new run.

Yeah, 23 scores now is quite a lot. The start up maybe a bit rough, but once you know where the creeper flows (and where not) you should be able to pick that safe spot.

Thanks Melissa! :)

I didn't mind replaying either. :P I knew I made some mistakes when improving my score yesterday, but didn't have time to replay, so I just submitted. I think there's still room to improve about 1 minute.

I made the "20" range, but I can't see how I can take more than a few seconds off.
Great game.
Thanks,
