Might’ve been cool if we had to pay some symbolic price (per reset) for the UI upgrades.

The top upgrade he suggests gives you 1Mil AI every 40+ hours…hardly a game breaker

Interesting, I did not know that. As Moon is quite boring now I consider starting all over (from scratch, 0 angels).
But wait – there is no reset button! Am I blind? Or is there no option to do so?

Import a bad export code (export, delete a couple of chars from the code, import). If you perform this on the moon it should reset your moon (same for earth).

I don’t play the beta (what’s the use of returning to the normal game if you’ve played all new content on the beta already?), so I’m waiting for the new updates.

After that I waited some more. And more…

Now, I’m getting impatient. When will us normal players get new quality content?

The beta has been closed for some time now.
I’m guessing the devs are working on fixing the issues that came up during the beta.

No multipliers or flux.
At 7Bil (700Mil pending). Just got the 666MilAI Oxy upgrade so I’m making 202Oct/day. At 96Lasers Going for 100. I’s going to cost 660Oct so it should take me a about 3.3 days.

@sum …. ok let me explain, I have currently 2 bill AI, to reach that 2bill AI will take me just over 2 weeks to get, to gain even 1% increase will take no less than 2 weeks

If you have 2Bil, 10% would mean reset at 200Mil. Waiting for 2Bil is very inefficient. Actually you might need to reset earlier than 200Mil. Like sumcrazycanadian said, it depends on how long does it take you to hit the wall.
10% means 10% not 110%.

The funny thing is, that progression ist FAR slower since I spend the AIs. It took me a few days from scratch to buy the oxygen bar x3 and now it takes already weeks to catch up – I am not even close to buy it yet.
Maybe there is some bug that makes slow moon even slower?
Did anyone else notice that?

Your feel it’s slower because AI gains slow down the further you progress. Meaning, the more AIs you got+killed the slower new AIs are gained.
So, if you had, for instance, 1Bil AIs, and you killed off 666Mil to get the OxyX3 upgrade. Getting those 666Mil again might actually take longer (despite the upgrade). I didn’t run the number so I don’t know where’s the point where 666Mil is a low enough % of your total for you to be able to replenish your AIs quickly, but at 7.5Bil, I just got it and it’s OK.
I’m guessing waiting for 8Bil would’ve been better.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: Developer / New Web Update and Beta Open!

Originally posted by iridium137:

The horribly slow pacing on the Moon, and their supposed attempt at “rebalancing” it, is so hilariously bad, it’s almost comical.

Since the Moon launch a few weeks ago, we’ve received a lot of messages from players who weren’t enjoying the slow speed of the Moon’s progress. We originally aimed at this balancing because there will be additional factors that affect its progress to take into account (upcoming Mega-Bucks purchases for example), and we didn’t want to make it easy.

First of all, if the Moon is “supposed” to be played using the upcoming Mega-bucks upgrades, then why did you release it before these upgrades are available? Or at least let the players know beforehand? All you needed to is say the above message when the Moon was released, and not a month after.

I took a look at the beta version, and the tweaks are, for the most part, so minor that they don’t even close to addressing the core problem. How is something like changing Moon Boots achievements from x3 to x3.5 supposed to make any difference? The problem is that the amount of money you make on the Moon is several orders of magnitude less than what is needed to make decent progress. As a result, people get stuck at around septillions of Moon dollars, with no meaningful upgrades to look forward to anytime soon, so they’re forced to spend weeks and months resetting and doing the same thing. And those minuscule tweaks aren’t going to change that. They may, at best, make it so you take 99.5 days instead of 100 days to climb out of this massive paywall…
Earth not only has more frequent upgrades, but often bigger multipliers as well. The Moon upgrades are always x3. Where are the x7, x9, or even x15 upgrades on the Moon? Same thing with angel upgrades. The Moon only has a single “all profit” upgrade, and then you get to the individual business ones that aren’t worth getting. And then there’s the achievements. The gap between 25-all and 100-all is way too massive considering how expensive lasers are. For the amount of money it takes to get 100 lasers, you can probably get 500 of everything on Earth. All these factors combined make the Moon excruciatingly slow compared to the Earth.
The Moon could really use extra “speed x2” achievements at 50-all and 75-all. As well as one or two extra “all profit” angel upgrades costing maybe 1 million and 100 million. Along with an extra set of cash upgrades squeezed in somewhere, such as in between the septillion and nonillion upgrades. The Moon needs to be a few orders of magnitude faster, which means major changes, not minor ones.

I disagree.
The moon’s too slow at the moment, I agree, but the tweaks made it much better IMO. I don’t want an earth clone, so this new upgrade/unlocks scheme is fun for me.

Hi,

I’ve gotten quite a ways on the moon (mobile version) – BUT – it seems to go on for ages to get to all the angel upgrades (the way I read the progression). Can someone wiser than me do the calculations and figure out how many years of playing you will have to do to get all the angel upgrades?

It’s impossible to know how long will that take without knowing your reset scheme. i.e. when do you reset?

The way to solve this is to clarify that +level upgrades have no effect on the buying prices. There’s no reason to have that objection unless you don’t understand how it works.

The fact that +level updates don’t affect prices is irrelevant.
What can you do if you want to avoid the AI waste of buying those upgrades (assuming they cost a non-negligible portion of your AIs) but you still want to get the upgrades further down?

I just upgraded my oxygen bar x3 for 666 million angels and now only have 64 million left.

doh

There’s a confirmation dialog just for that…So I doubt too many people suffer from this.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / How many $s does it take to earn angels on the moon?

At 6.1Bil AIs, Boots, Booths and Clones account for so little of my income – they’re below 0.001%.
So, if they cost more than 6.1Bil*0.001% (61K), they’re not worth it.

I noticed it. Mostly because it says “export for planet earth” in the conformation dialog. Not hard to notice.

Most of the businesses become the top earner at some point, newspaper too. It is due to the design of the upgrades and the unlocks given by the newspaper.

Except shrimps, they just suck.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Strategy for Moon?

Originally posted by teh_gameaddict:

So, the new update made it obvious it’s just a cash grab and they changed the next tier of upgrades on the moon from non to dec… Maybe they’ll make it playable in the next patch (releasing in 6 months or however long it takes) but until then there’s really no point to logging into it.

Holyday City is real fun. Might get boring after a couple weeks, but they update it every week or two.

If you check out the beta, you’ll see that unlock schemes are changed…Give the new scheme a chance before you ship everyone over to another game.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Latest Version (Up)date

Unity’s going out the Chrome windows, the moon gets more and more complaints, earth is in a 3 months stall (At least) and lost multipliers frequency increases…but still a noticeable part of the update revolves around visuals and mixing up existing stuff.
I’m still not going to slam this game, but will say I don’t like this update at all. I hate it a bit.

Just a suggestion, you could use a dummy email account if you’d like to keep your personal email private.

When is a good time to buy oxy X3 AI upgrade?

I was estimating 3.5-4bill because you’d lose roughly 20% production but because of the x3 on oxy (which generates roughly 30-40% of your total income) you technically generate money/AI faster. The issue is, you need to wait to reset about a week just to regain the angels you spent.

Anyone have a better method?

I will buy that X3Oxy when I can regain my spent AIs + gain some 20% AIs in under 2-3 days . At 4Bil, it takes me about 1.5-2 days to gain 10%, so I guess I’ll buy it at 8-10Bil

Bad idea, don’t support…
The game is already good how it is, and the buy max button works wonders, saving 300 clicks when getting all businesses to 4k.
A ‘buy till next upgrade’ button seems too lazy. 5 clicks and you’re done getting there, no need to implement a feature that only 3 people would use. Besides, the progress bar below each business already lets you know how close you are to the next upgrade.

its not really the amount of clicks, its just that if you accidentally click 1 more than you meant to, you have to click 9-18 more times, which can get annoying

Or you can just give up this obsessive behavior.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Moon pie graph profits

Originally posted by dulkan:

It’s pretty obvious, that Oxygen Bars will eventually peter out, due to their upgrade path, yet the fact remains, that they dominate gameplay for a long time. I don’t buy any multipliers, I still haven’t reached the nonillions and for this entire month, it’s been the same: max oxygen bars, get cheese and werewolves to some decent level, ignore everything else and that won’t change for quite some time.

The moon feels like earth already. Build everything up in 5 minutes, then wait a week to reset for angels. Considering I have completed Earth and not even half the achievements from the moon, that’s pretty terrible design.

At the moment oxygen bars alone make about 1.14 oct per hour, everything else combined is under 500 sept(cheese+wolves are 480 sept/h). It doesn’t help me at all, that this changes in a month or two. There simply is absolutely nothing to do for me. With that income, it’ll take a week just to get to 100 laser, then another to be able to afford the next upgrade.

I don’t get it. How can your Oxy be much more profitable than mine (I make ~800Sept/hour), and yet you don’t get much out of the Cheese+Parks+Wolves (They make ~1227Sep/hour for me).

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / [Tutorial]Enable Unity in Chrome

Originally posted by Aeren:

Well, the reason behind this is actually purely for security reasons, and Unity is already working on changing the way they handle information so that they don’t need NPAPI. They made an announcement a short while ago. In the meanwhile, you can indeed use another browser of your choice. I myself will stick with Chrome as much as I can because of the many advantages it offers, the increased security and the fact that it’s much faster. But that’s just a personnal opinion of course ;-)

I’ve never felt Chrome had anything to boast about when it comes to performance. And when it comes to security, the way Google is collecting info and pushing synching everything (most of the time without asking first), I feel that’s a great enough security/privacy risk on its own.
