This page explains both how to successfully complete aid delivery missions, and the effect on the BGS (Background Simulation). Use the tags above to read about related items, together with similar/related functions in-game.
Delivery missions have a canister icon with an arrow.
Delivery missions are simple; take the item from the giving faction, deliver it to the receiver. Note that if the receiving faction has status within the system you are basically voting against yourself; they will get the same INF/REP gain as we do. So avoid that. Delivery of Aid (Food or Medicine items) will decrease the state for the target faction, food decreases Famine, and medicine decreases Outbreak.
Functional States: All but War
Target/Source Info: The target faction will be postitively affected by this, although both source and target receive INF. Take missions TO the faction you wish to help if possible.
Exceptions: Does not affect INF in War state.
Effect on Player: Gain REP & INF with source and target factions (choice of rewards).
