Topic: General Gaming / Idle Games

I haven’t played anything but idle games for over a year. Used to play dungeon crawlers like MD:book of dread and strategy games, but nowadays it can’t bother me. Perhaps the instant gratuition of idle games made me too dumb to play those – too much effort to do anything else but click and watch numbers grow, which is sad.
..
I read about a medical experiment with mice. The neuro scientists would setup a button, and wire it to the brain of a mouse’s orgasm center. Every time the mouse pressed the button, it would experience a stimulated orgasm. The mice would keep pressing the button until they starved to death. This experiment was repeated and showed the same result even when there was food nearby.

Here’s the wiki link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleasure_center
Read about rodent experiments in the first paragraph.

Topic: Idle Conquest / Try conquest the world w/o using DK or resetting.

This is the day when Touria is going to be conquered!

After 124 days into this challenge, the grey isles have been conquered. Let’s celebrate this with a toast on Queen Catherine!

And here are the final winners of the “guess how long it’ll take” round:
These people made an educated guess within the first 2 weeks of the challenge:
ken030988: 2 month
ponyflare: 68 days
dday58: 69 days (after ponyflare announced his guess first xD)
silverpheonix: 2.5 month
spud96: 4 month (after long, long calculations)
lomie: 6 month
Ciffy: 1 year
GuilhermeS123: 3 years

And the winner is spud96 who, after long, long calculations guessed the almost-exact date!
He said 4 month or 120days and it was 124 days! But there was this huge patch near the end of the challenge, which made things a little more complicated, when Catherine suddenly made all eco buildings cheaper. Likewise the military building cost skyrocketed, leaving me unable to get to 800 Castles near the end. Congrats to spud, if that patch hadnt been, it might have come out to the exact date!

Got a bit lazy posting these pictures and writing some stuff, so with delay, the challenge has ended after glorious 124 days in total.
Hope to see you next time again when somebody challenges me to some stuff. We shall see if I reset, but .. nah. It’s fine as it is and at least this idle game had a start+end.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to you all out there!

For Touria we sing!
The might of Queen Catherine!
Raise the flag; embrace her strength!
The world we conquer with all of our might!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Moon pie graph profits

This pie chart is actually a great idea! Thank you. I think a google drive table would be great, which shows this pie chart for everybody. If somebody would write a list of businesses and you can put in the number of each you have, then it outputs this pie chart..

309 Mil Army Power… soon!
Oh, almost 1 month without updates.

Didnt have any luck with the new update… Queen Catherine got into “gleeful” mode, which makes financial buildings 10x cheaper but at the same time, barracks etc. got 10x more expensive!

Nothing else left but to wait one month and complete the challenge with those barracks, which I have. LOL :P

I used to hover the mouse over “games” and pick one from my playlist, but now it will always show only 1 game. That’s unfortunate.

Topic: Bionic Battle Mutants / Cerbrium price is wrong

Yup, I’ve came to the same conclusion. It’s not worth grinding the same map over and over again because it takes too long to turn tech-waste into cerbrium. Imagine that: 785.000 tech waste to fully upgrade all 4 mercs are needed, to grind the same map 7850 times is .. lol too much :)

Just a little update…

897 Markets (with 4 upgrades).
Country income is very low, I had expected 70 million/sec.

Topic: General Gaming / Caravaneer 2 official thread

Well, Caravaneer 2 was rather dull.. at least I finished it so.. it was just a giant Excel Table with a tiny bit of a game.
The most negative point I experienced was the map filled with useless cities. You know, water+forage+food, self feeding cities which produce nothing and trade nothing.
This game would do a lot better with fewer cities, but with interesting details.

Anyway, nobody seems to care about spending time with it so I’m off.

Topic: Idle Conquest / country income doesn't match

The actual money income matches the statistics screen. Where it says “gold income per sec” and “country income”.. that’s what you really get (tested with a stopwatch over a period of 1 hour)

I located the problem to the numbers on the map. Each time the bar fills takes 8-9 seconds, and when it fills, you notice a little jump in the money counter. But the money added is not the value that’s written on the countries!
Misty Key for example reads 187mil but it gives you only 124 mil at the fill of one bar, which is 8/12 of the noted value.

Topic: Idle Conquest / country income doesn't match

Credits go to Hobovilla for this find:

“i did a DK reset and there seems do be a discrepancy between the gold from countries per sec listing and the actual gold the country says it gives per cycle. Astrila says it gives me $153,932 per cycle, which takes approx. 8 seconds, which adds up to $19,241.50 per sec. When i have that as the only country ive conquered the gold per second from countries value lists $12,827.67, which is one twelvth the full value of a cycle instead of one eighth.”

Topic: Idle Conquest / country income doesn't match

Hey guys, i think i found a little bug

The income from a conquered country is only 1/12 of the number it says on the map.. but the bars on the map fill every 8 seconds..

So, Misty Keys description reads: “Gold gains: 187 mil”.
It’s bar fills up every 8 seconds. That would be 23mil/sec. However, the gold increase per second (on the stats screen) says it only gives 1/12 of the actual value: 15 mil/sec.
The gold income from conquered countries should be a lot higher. Thx!

…just ignore this guy.

Misty Keys in 1 hour and a half!

I can hardly await it. After that, I’ll see very clearly how long the rest will take.
There won’t be any major surprises coming up in the future, with all countries captured and most buildings at 800 or 900 already (except cathedral+castles)
Another update coming up tomorrow when all things are settled, and it’s rolling slowly but surely toward victory! hehe

Hey cchaon, starting 20 days behind of schedule doesn’t matter at all…
So nothing is lost.. you won’t finish before me, but I might not fully conquer the world in less total days. Welcome back!! :)

Everyone else is invited to join this challenge, too and who can do it in least amount of days.

Update: I’m on day 24 and got 900 barracks now. Misty Keys ahead in 4-5 days.

Nope, they only have standard guys in military armor and M16.
The best place to intercept them is when they’re moving away from Qubba or Ausz.
I got 384 Million from a 69-man caravan – these guys are the reason why towns never have enough money. xD
How much money a caravan has depends on how long since it’s been spawned. Then they for example pick up petrol, travel to another town to sell, pick up fuel in the process and rinse and repeat. And when you want to trade with your Player, this message: “Town only has 5.000$ to barter” shows up and you know, you’ve been too late.

That Ozbet Government is behaving funny! They downgrade my reputation with them… for doing nothing.
First my rep was at +1.. did the Quest to defeat some robbers.. then it was -38.. went to Qubba to buy fuel.. then it’s at -46.
No fights, nothing at all.

Topic: General Gaming / Caravaneer 2 official thread

I got the coordinates of Qubba from the Captain in Northway, and if I remember correctly, Kevin the dude with the house near Serino gave me the coordinates to Northway. Perhaps the coordinates are also on the map of Janubi.
Tribal Region → Alkubra Region → Janubi Region → Qubba Region → Federation Region

The battery charger (needed for digital scopes later on) can charge 4 batteries per day.. However, I think there’s a bug??? Even when I bought 10 chargers and 200 batteries, but still only 4 batts get charged per day. That’s quite unfortunate because of the fortune I spent on the digital scopes :( Now my party is restricted to one battle per week at most, or else their scopes power down, daaaaaamn !!!

I’m not going to post much since next update (Misty Key) will be really slow.. approximately on January, the 11th.
Doing my best to get the last achievement multipliers of 800+900 buildings.

I wish you a Happy new year!!

On the 18th day of this challenge…

Teluht Isles have been conquered, Fufu !

I built 850 Farms, 800 Markets, 710 Goldmines and 700 Cathedrals for the economy.
For military purposes, I also built 810 Barrackses, 760 Arenas and 710 Castles.

And if I ever beat this challenge, those 500 Altars have churned out 7,5 Million DKs already, waiting.. and growing further.
So it’s now up to conquering Misty Key and the infamous Grey Isles, stay tuned for further updates !

cchaon might have departed from us, but the challenge must go on! Sorry, bro.

Topic: General Gaming / Caravaneer 2 official thread

Don’t make the same mistake as I did.. relying too much on trading.
Later on AI Caravans will suck all the money out of towns.
There comes a point when you WILL need the combat power to take on a caravan with 35 or even 69 men.

These automated Caravans will run between two towns back and forth until these are completely dry of cash!
In my current game I’m sitting on 3500 Cement (which cost a fortune at 2600$ each) but the 20+ surrounding towns can’t pay.

I once took out a 50men caravan (lost my 2 best mercs) and … it had 41 million $ loot in cash.
So, once you reach Qubba I recommend hiring 20+ mercenaries or you will go bankrupt because towns are unable to trade goods. (they gave all their money to AI caravans)

Good hunting!
