The Gold Balls Soloution

Hey there guys,
I am close to 1000 pointing this game, the golf balls soloution evades me however. Any tips on what mission oil spills were more likely to happen?
Thanks.

I got this really early on in playing. Nothing actually triggers an oil spill, as they are like all disasters, occurring randomly. After the oil spill happens, locate it, click "A" and it will ask you to clean it up immediately by pressing "X". Keep in mind, this costs A LOT of money to do, but it will unlock the achievement.

I have had 3 oil spills by mission 11. I just saved when I got it and issued 4 print money edicts to get the money to fix it. They are random so it is just luck. Not seen anything to state mission specific

You can create a sandbox game if needed and set disasters to plenty. This should increase the chance of getting one to occur

Yea, I wouldn't feel bad. I have 6 achievements left to get, 2 of which will be to finish the campaign. (I've done 16/20 missions) Obviously need the Expert achievement. The other 3 are all disaster-related: Put out 10 fires, Survive 10 disasters, & 3 volcanic eruptions. Gonna have to do a sandbox game to net all those as I can't seem to get 10 to occur in any of the missions.

If you don't know you can hit keep playing once you win a campaign and let it keep going to get those achievements. They have to be done in a single game not a single mission. Worth while if you are close

I wound up just playing a sandbox game and getting all 3. Took 48 years to get the 10 disasters, and an additional 7 to the 3rd volcano to erupt, which netted me the 'put 10 fires out' achievement as well.

This game is very testing of my patience as it really loves to freeze on me. Lost an hour of playtime tonight when it froze while I was saving, which made that particular save corrupt. =/

Instead of picking a method to clean it up (100 /mo, 300 /mo, or None) make sure you have enough money, usually $60,000, and hit X while over the spill. It will be cleaned up immediately and the achievement will be yours.
