Topic: Gravitee Wars Online / Suggestions megathread

Planetary decay mod: The explosion craters on planets would increase their radius by a small percentage each turn, more if the planet is irradiated.
Loose orbit: Explosions can move planets slightly based on their sizes. If two planets collide, their contact point explodes like a real collision.

Sextuple kill board clearer or as I’d call it “Luck is Mine”. (I’m the last to die.)

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Late-game hero power

For the simplest calculations, just aim for a suitable price to current hero DPS ratio (since you will be aiming for the x4 bonus, small additions are negligible) and level up the cheapest heroes in multiples of 25 with respect to that. For me, I set 10x level cost to be less than 10,000 times DPS before advancing the next 25 levels, which is quite manageable with the usual energized dark rituals. You might need to get used to the suffixes but you never have to reformulate for gilding.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 500+ Tredecillion Angels

About 10hrs (with the doubled offline earnings bug) if you can get to 1950 newspapers quite quickly, no kred multipliers.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / a piece of accidental advice!

Actually the break point is 1.25. (1.25-1)5=1.25, but (1.2-1)5=1, from 1.2 tredecillion to effectively 1 tredecillion is a 16.67% loss.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The Good News (Maths is Hard)

Considering the x10 bank profits would increase total profits by about 90%, maybe when around 4.5 tredecillion angels at least. But that’s only profit-wise; gaining back almost half your angels would take around 2.25 times longer than the first time. It’s probably better to wait until (1+2tredec./n) 2 <1.9.
2 tredecillion angels should be at most ~38% of your total, if it’s the first time you buy the upgrade, i.e., at 5.2 tredecillion angels or more.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Who likes icing on the cake?

It would be cool if the icons for businesses changed into fancier and more lavish images after a certain amount of upgrades or achievement milestones. For example, the lemonade stand icon shows more lemons, then a jug of lemonade, then maybe storage tanks, an industrial lemon squeezer or something similarly superfluous, but still business-like. Maybe even an aesthetic name change to reflect that progress. If that seems too much, at least have the times x profit upgrade icons reflect their names, similar to the managers, instead of the same pictures for every upgrade.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Late Game Reset Strategy

If every AI gained is automatically made effective instead of having to reset to claim them, then that should net the theoretical highest growth rate. Without constantly buying angel claims, the only limit to approaching that would be the time it takes to get back to your current level of upgrades/businesses/achievements (such that base income would be similar) after reset. Let’s call that recovery time, R. So maybe you should experiment based on recovery time, waiting 1R, 1.5R, 2R, etc. before resetting.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Scientific Notation?

Originally posted by hahaownedlolz:

I don’t really like the idea of having a scientific notation.. as it’s not so fun to see numbers increase from 1*10(87) to 1*10(90) that just destroys all the fun of progressing and the game itself.

…because ‘leveling up’ on an obvious logarithmic scale is totally not fun and shows menial progress. It doesn’t have to skip to the next 1000, with the distinction between 10 87 and 10 88 being easier to state and compare (so you never have to say something like hundreds of duodecillions when trying to be precise). In fact, because the last indicator changes more often it actually gives more of an incentive and a better sense of progress in my opinion.

The numbers are so important that they lost all their meanings. It’s adventure capitalist, not adventure mathematician. Everyone understand 1 million $ but 1 octovigintillion $ ?

That’s the point of scientific notation. You don’t need Latin names for arbitrarily large numbers, the raised number after the ten tells you how many zeroes there are after it. Plus, in capitalism, you’re supposed to go as high as possible, so there is no such thing as ‘too big’.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Scientific Notation?

Like 2.322*1057 instead of 2.322 octodecillion. The text is shorter but the superscript could be hard to read for business costs or cash/sec.
