New Update: "Saudi Arabia"
Score: 38989
693 days
62%
2 stars

After about 30-35 attempts, I was able to acheave the above :-)
The tip-off came when I noticed that the important tree was the
"Civil Unrest" tree in Transmissions. This tree unlocked Greenland early enough to allow infectivity in Russia and Canada
After playing around with this approach and nearly succeeding at infecting the world several times, I was able to come up with a strategy that made it possible to win:
(1): Whole "Civil Unrest" tree in Transmissions
(2): whole "Polution/Environmental tree in Symptoms
(3): whole "Surveillance/Propaganda" tree in Abilities

OK people--anyone ready to attempt 3 stars |:-)

I thought that I'd post my achievements so far:

USA
Best score so far: 45199
Number of days: 585
69%

CHINA
Best score so far: 41364
Number of days: 607

SAUDI ARABIA

RE: new plague
I'm pleased to see how many of you have been following my Two threads :-)
I hope that they have been entertaining and informative.

I do feel a little disappointed that nobody has felt comfortable posting their own thoughts and ideas.
several times daily, I usually try to check to see if any of you have commented on one of the threads.
Please do so--feedback encourages me too :-)

RE: new plague
South Africa Connection:
Is Greenland unreachable?

I'm not sure whether any of you ever play countries that are usually not discussed, but how about considering a few of them?
Looking over the world map of "Plague inc" I've noticed that South Africa should be almost as effective as Saudi Arabia, right? Not so!
You might ask why, and to be quit frank--I don't know why.
In fact, as I was developing the mechanics of this scenario, I couldn't tweek it's elements so that South Africa /Greenland worked out well.

Hence this challenge:
Infect the whole world from "South Africa"
Have fun :-)

"South Africa" will now be my next personal challenge. As usual, I'll post my results.

RE: new plague
South Africa Connection:

Yes-- Greenland is reachable; But, at the expense of Australia.
"Brainwashing" in 'Abilities' is one of the keys to infecting Greenland.
Another element that I've had to resort to (and I really don't like it) is racking up a lot of dna Undecided
It would appear that over (220+) dna is needed to force Greenland to submit.
I can't provide any win yet-- grrrrr!
Once again I'm pleading for Ideas and/or solutions.

Well, I won the scenario, but I'm quite disappointed in the results.
However, I was able to infect Australia early in the game by using a new strategy.
As usual Greenland budged only reluctantly, and only because of building up a lot of dna part way into the scenario. Ironically, the number of days (1127 days) would have been less if Germany hadn't held out Undecided
Finland, Norway and Sweden fought total infection also, but they weren't the culprits.
Now that I've "boo hoo'd", I can describe the general strategy that got me the win:

As soon as the dna points reached over (9), I bought the each of the traits in all three categories
(Transmissions, Symptoms and Abilities).
Than I went to Abilities--
[1]: I built up (~40) dna points and acquired all of the "Brainwashing" traits.
Next I went to Transmissions--
[2]: I built up (~60) dna points and acquired "Civil Unrest-1" and "Secret Police"+"Interrogation-1,2,3".
[3]: From here, I allowed the dna points to accumulate to (~280) dna.
[4]: I than went back and aquired all of "Pharmaceutical" + all of "Secret Labs".
[6]: Returning to Transmissions, I finished "Interrogation" + "Civil Unrest".
Basically I let Mutation do it's thing.

Well--There it is.
As usual, I'm desirous of feedback and postings of scores; (obviously) better than this one.
By the way--- If there are any viewers from the STEAM forum viewing, comment on these two strings :-)

Not much better is it?
As you can see, South Africa is one infuriating country!
Since this score; I've had close instances, but the cure beats me Undecided
So--Back to the drawing board!

RE: new plague
South africa connection:

To succeed and have a chance to infect the world, it appears that you
HAVE TO keep "Brainwashing 1" above 35 dna points and below 42 dna points.

This is followed by going to "Secret police 1" and receiving above
69 dna points but below 72 dna points.
I've attempted all kinds of combinations, but only this combination has been successful (and as you can see by my scores, "it ain't easy).

Undecided
