99 LuftWaffelsby quill18 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
"Hello and welcome to The LuftWaffel, the most elite zeppelin corps on the planet. As traders, it is our job to connect people and places, much like how the Silk Road connected the Western World to the Far East realms so long ago."
Your goal is to bring together each region's unique goods and industries to grow your cities' population to 1 million people!
**Stand-alone builds coming soon!**
Created by Quill18 before a livestream audience! Big thanks to everyone who came out to watch, and an extra thanks to subscribers who help make the streams extra-awesome (and who appear in the game as default zeppelin names.)

*HOW TO PLAY*
WASD/Arrows or Right/Middle-mouse to move the camera. Scroll to zoom.
Click "New Zeppelin" and setup a route by clicking industries/cities.
Recommendation: Start by building a route that goes: Wheat Farm, Wafflehaus, Megacattle Ranch, Wafflehaus. This will bring milk and wheat to the Wafflehaus and will start your food production. Build a second Zeppelin to bring this food to your cities.
Next, focus on either getting your Plank and Steel industries running (delivering these goods to cities will increase your population) or focus on luxury goods like Fruit Cakes (which will increase tax rates).
Cattle -> Meat -> Food
Cattle -> Leather -> Vests/Goggles/Top Hat (Luxury Items)
Cattle -> Milk -> Waffles (Food)
Sand -> Glass Lenses -> Goggles (Luxury Item)
Copper -> Brass -> Goggles (Luxury Item)

- Increase your Zeppelin speed, globally.

You can also build as many Zeppelins as you want, though the cost for each increases. (You can sell Zeppelins at 75% of cost if you want to change a route.)

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
