Thanks for the help

What problem?

it says that I need a closing bracket but all of my brackets line up

It looks like you have an extra closing curly brace just before the line you've highlighted in red. Try to remove that one. Next time, please post your code inside code markers. Also, if you use an IDE like eclipse, that will help you match up your {'s and }'s.

Edited 6 Years Ago by kramerd: n/a

The way this is written makes it near impossible to follow the {} because there are hundreds of lines of data separating matching brackets. This would be a much better propgram if you removed each block of output lines into its own array, defined up-front, and had a tiny method to print any such array to the output stream. Then your logic would look like:

if (envelope == 1) {
   printBlock(envelopeBlock1);
   answer = c.readLine ();               // gets answer from user
   if (answer.equals ("yes")) {
      printBlock(flightBlock));
      c.print ("Do you want to set up a shelter? (yes/no)")
      //  etc

then it would be much easier to follow the overall logic
