This is the first time for this mission for me as I played a different city last time through the game.
I made a big blunder at the start of this mission. I misread the world map and thought I had a land route for wood export and as such, set up a lumber industry in the north west corner based on that fact. That blunder cost me cash and time until I realized my mistake. Lumber was my only export here and as such, that mistake caused a big delay in getting money for sandstone imports.
All requests were satisfied and there is no military action in this mission, or none that I encountered.
The area near the sun temple is where work camps, SY's, etc. were located for the sun temple construction. When it was complete, a quickly started beer industry was placed here to evolve housing up to the point where it could hold 4500 population to complete the mission. Were I to do it again, I would start the beer industry while the sun temple is being built and have the population at or near 4500 when the temple is complete. This would shave a few months off the time.
As soon as you load the mission, pause it. People are already streaming in and the mission will end when population reaches 4500.
