So, the table of contents links back to this page?!?!?!?! Getting stuck on Mission 6 in modern times. Keeps busting me out after it tells me to keep the canned good export above 200. Aaaaaaaargh.

Uh huh. The campaign has 12 episodes, and only 8 are described in this walkthrough…

@Walzo: If You haven’t figured it it out yet, here’s how: Stop with every task You have been given after the chaos index has been introduced and starts rising, do NOT build canneries or stop the existing ones immediately. Wait until the index rises over 200 (it will do it by itself), after that continue with the tasks normally.
