Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Request: Delete/Wipe/Reset High score list

The high score list is an irritant as no one except perhaps Starcryxxx 32,970 has a legit score there.

Would it be possible to reset the list, perhaps other than for Starcryxxx, or perhaps totally? Is it possible to put a score limit on the list? I don’t think anyone is going to exceed Star for a very long time.

I don’t really care about High scores, but it was an irritant when I tried to reference it for a question in chat.

Thanks.

Topic: Trimps: Bug Reports / Game stuck

For what it’s worth I’ve gotten three full browser freezes after pressing the view perks button, and one pressing the portal button (not sure about this last.) If I get something similar again I’ll try to get at least a screen shot.

It’s about making settings without boxes around them, or boxes without settings, or some sort of box settings to make box settings easier to box into upgrade setting things. And clicking things. And upgrades things. And updates things. Or something like that. What couldn’t be clearer?

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / What defines manual research?

I’ve been assigning scientists for a while now as switching was getting tiresom. Slowly using up to about 20-25% till a 150K cap. As my runs have gotten quicker I’m raising that cap a bit at a time. So I’m set up for the feat.

That being said once turkimps start to pan out I have been still manually switching. I have to go back to previous exports a few times to fix my goof ups. Finally I put a piece of paper on my monitor over Research! That helps. Also doesn’t help this is a longer run, and I have other priorities. (First Nom run.)

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / 'Easter Eggs'

I got a 37 Nu. egg on z149, so I take it back some. That’s a reasonable free reward.

Point being probably not a good idea to interrupt your playing goals for the event.

First two were moderate amounts of resources. I wish the resources at least did something like fill your bar. At least that could be worth something rather than just being fluff.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Suggestion: New Staff upgrade: Robotrimp boost.

I’ve always been a little concerned staves have no atk type bonus. An added bonus of this nature would be interesting. I know it would be odd if a person gets it, and didn’t have Robotrimp yet, but that’s not all that different that other seemly useless bonus upgrades on staves. I don’t have a suggestion of the degree, but any moderate, upgrade-able amount would be nice to see.

Not a lot more to say about this. Didn’t want to put it on reddit right away as it’s pretty busy over there right now.

Thoughts?

Read my other post. It explains why.

Sounds perfect then. Available for idle search, but not visibly tagged idle covers all the bases!

And the game is certainly idle.

I’m happy to see the game got its “idle” tag back. I still think it was right to replace “clicker” with “strategy,” but I didn’t like that it inadvertently disappeared the idle tag. Mostly because idle is so pop.

This had unintended consequences. The game lost the “clicker” tag, and gained the “strategy” tag, but it also lost one if it’s extra tags. Unfortunately that tag was “idle.”

I think this game is far more incremental than idle, but being how often people look for idle genre games I hope losing the idle tag didn’t screw things up for Green!

I’m weeks beyond this now. I just found this bug thread recently, or I would have posted it back then. I used a six hour export and it got through whatever was happening before without the issue repeating. Thanks!

Don’t know how long the public pastebin lasts. If someone needs this I have the export still.

It’s an older save. I didn’t realize there was a bug section here as it’s “hidden” under the general discussion section. Sorry about that.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Changing the game tag "clicker" to "strategy."

This is a petition to ask folks to change the game tag “clicker” to game tag “strategy.”

The “mouse only” tag covers the clicker aspect of the game. The game isn’t a clicker as multiple fast repeats of the same click doesn’t give progress.

More and more I’m realizing the game has multiple strategy aspects. Perk distribution, use of geneticists, order of play elements, use of void maps, etc all have strategy elements.

If you are willing to please go here:
http://www.kongregate.com/games/GreenSatellite/trimps/tags
and downvote clicker, and upvote strategy.

Of course if Green would prefer the clicker tag for some commercial or other reason, I’m making an error here. Hope not. Thanks.

Actually it’s kinda just the opposite. This is why people DISABLE Adblock on certain pages. So they CAN screw around with this stuff.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Scrying Issues

Scry with this type pop up are worthless: Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You guys might as well get rid of those for ones that work. Unless you are somehow making a secret profit from our clicking them through endless iterations before they burn us. Even if you are get rid of them.

And the scry that turn your whole screen black first? Sometimes they work sure, but most of the time when they don’t you end up having to reload the page just to get your game back.

I really don’t get why scry has so many issues.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Ok, so I think we can all agree that the requirements for Christmas feats are pretty ridiculous.

Originally posted by Exhau:

There’s an entire upgrade menu dedicated to rubies. They are not useless. Are you blind?

And there’s a difference between “difficult” and “requiring absurd degrees of dedication to even come close to achieving, and then being unable to retry them for a full year.” It’s a bit subtle, but it’s there.

Again, why are you going through such absurd, idiotic lengths to defend a developer who clearly only sees you as a wallet with hands?

Look. I’m not happy either about the game becoming more PtW heavy, and a bit disgusted as well, but I don’t think you have it all right here.

First you are being absurd to affirm the devs ONLY see us a pay cows. They are continuing to develop the game to great lengths, and very little of that content has anything to do with pay, and everything to do with that other addiction: spending time. And they are hardly convert about it. Really all of us are in this nuthouse together, and the only key out of the place is to cut back on, or outright quit spending time here.

The other thing I think you’re not completely right about is the implication rubies are some great perk. I bought some yesterday. Sure it advanced me a little, but they really aren’t that powerful. At least not yet. The Gifts are far more powerful, and quite permanent and fairly accessible. Yet even those are hardly necessary to enjoying the game, or completing any of its goals.

So while I share some of your concerns I needed to point out that ruby purchasing options have not sent the game into a PtW tailspin. I thought they would at first. Turns out I was wrong about that.

We will see in the future if that changes.

Vlaeghe I kind of agree with both you and Rastan9. I think Rastan could have been a bit softer in their approach, but to clarify what I in particular mean by “I don’t mean to offend” is simply that no offense is intended. I’m not intentionally trolling. Sure I know I might cause offense, but I’m TRYING not to, or at least to minimize it. Like I said, I think you both are right, but then again I’m Libra rising, and I try to think everyone is right which means I try to think everyone is wrong. I guess. So now I’m stuck.

I don’t see snowballs being to much of a problem with the 360 counter on them. Higher counter would be nice, but isn’t critical for the requirements to be met. 13/15 days logging in is a bit nuts though. I’d like to see that reduced. That is if it’s really the case. No one knows for certain yet that ratio is right.

lets see 25k divided by 80 is about 314 and 314 divided by 24 is about 13 days. this is if you are constantly harvesting snowballs every 6h which is rediculous since most people sleep 8-9 hours a day, this in turn adds like i said another 14 hours to make up for lost snowballs while sleeping and by this time your most likely on the 15th day already and have missed your opportunity to get the feat. Now if the 360 snowball cap was removed this feat would be a lot easier to fit into schedules and all around easier. (This math doesn’t include spending rubies or scrying for more snowballs.)

I think you forgot the snowman in your calculations who I think ignores the 6 hour max time and just keeps generating no matter what. Plus – as many have pointed out – we don’t even know if present limits apply, or if FREE snowballs will be generated in other ways down the line.

On top of it all, as many others have pointed out: Who cares? As someone pointed out when losing data to a Cookie Clicker update: “It irritates me how much this irritates me.” Ultimately if we get that worried about all this we a more than just a little bit nuts, and should just calm down, and quit the game for a bit, and stop acting like rats in the crazy maze, and more like actual people.
