Do you have tons of G squigs in your wallet and nothing to do with them? Want to help new Skyrates pull themselves up by their landing gear and get out of the early tiers?

Operation Echo is an open volunteer mission for veteran Skyrates under any and all banners (or no banner at all!) to work the markets in the starter Skyland groups to boost low tier cargo to make more profitable, shorter range trade loops for newer players. With Flash coming to an end by the end of the year, every flight hour is precious to the Skyrates that are still progressing through the tiers trying to reach their dream craft, so let's help them get there as fast as possible!

Primary Objectives

Echo
-Fish: Maintain at Purple
-Paper: Maintain at Red

Sharif
-Food: Maintain at Purple
-Fish: Maintain at Red

Secondary Objectives (try to avoid these unless all primaries are at Maintain)

Steppe
-Paper: Sell to Purple
-Fish: Buy to Red

Echo
-Food: Sell to Purple

Sharif
-Paper: Sell to Purple

I'll be working these in my Bismarck until she can't fly anymore, but any hauls to the three "starter" subgroups with the aim of boosting the markets for other players is more than appreciated! When your grandchildren ask what you did when the Skylands were falling, how are you going to respond?

Update 6/23 Looks like 'Fire in the Belly' kicked us off to a good start, thanks Calvin! Primary objectives have been updated, and added secondary objectives to include all three starter groups.

Update 7/3 All primary objectives have been met! Gonna take the weekend to try to get a few more trade points, then patch up any primaries that need fixing and get started on the secondaries.

Is there really no way to keep playing without flash?

My impression from what I've seen Calvin post here is that the server side code should still work, but the client would need to be remade. I've noticed there are a couple Flash emulator projects out there trying to keep Flash games alive, but they all seem to be offline only to avoid security issues, so that doesn't help much here.

Sounds fun. I'll help.
I've upgraded my Levi with a bit more Cargo space: 13865. Nearly twice what I had before.

Appreciate the help! Put a landing strip on that and it may as well be its own mobile skyland.
