Automatically merge public cities with half or less of the spots filled. Improvements get set to the better of the two merged cities.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / How to get Car Batteries?

The number of car batteries increases massively as you get to higher levels. I have 1,565 car batteries at time of writing.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / What to buy with free fuel?

You can’t stack two books with the same title, even if their strengths are different. Water and Food are easy to get and don’t have that large an effect on morale so I wouldn’t waste Fuel/slots on those. Shortcuts is probably best if you want to play as much as possible. White Flag may be useful if raiding takes off and you’re not into that, but I doubt it. Honestly, most of the buyable books right now aren’t that appealing—for my part I’m hoarding my Fuel (no BYM bonus for me though =( ).

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Crafting require fuel?

Books can reduce the Fuel crafting cost but not eliminate it.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Why is Deathmobile Upgrade for 15 bucks available on Armorgames but not here??

I think they figured they would earn more money by selling Books. The top Union City Shortcuts in the store is 1600 Fuel, which is 10-15 dollars already, and isn’t nearly as good as Deathmobile.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Zombies getting stuck during infected attacks

That’s why you maze instead of sealing. As added bonuses, then the zombies won’t attack your buildings and you can get them to all run through your wire traps.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Where do i find treated wood?

High-quality Fire Axes also give Treated Wood and can be found at slightly higher levels (up to 13?) if you don’t want to go that low. Would be nice if the same were true for Survival Axes, but it’s not.

If you’re in a rush, according to the wiki you might be able to convert some metal components to Treated Wood by building and scrapping Balanced Brutal Bloodlusters or upgrading and scrapping low-grade Fire Axes; this would cost Fuel (29 per BBB or 6 for a green Fire Axe) but probably less than buying Treated Wood outright especially if you have a crafting book. I don’t have one I can look at right now though, so I can’t tell you if it’s true.

Supposedly they lose 2 levels. I haven’t tried though.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Suggesgons On the Game (actually turned into an idea box so post away)

I think some sort of auction house would be neat. That type of thing has been arguably the most interesting part of many multiplayer games I’ve played.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Best spot for wood farming

Cool. I figure Construction Sites are probably better when they are available then—many of the top-level upgrades require no cloth.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Best spot for wood farming

Large Hardware Stores are best for all resources—you can get several hundred to more than a thousand wood in a single run depending on level. Warehouses have more blueprints and components, but even with recycling they’re not as good as Large Hardware Stores in terms of resources. I haven’t attacked enough Construction Sites yet to say how they compare to Large Hardware Stores as far as wood goes, but they definitely have little or no cloth.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Why is Deathmobile Upgrade for 15 bucks available on Armorgames but not here??

40 fuel is not $40. The big spenders are going to buy fuel at the most efficient rate, which is 15 fuel per Kred. You can get 1150 Kreds for $100. So 40 fuel * (1 Kred / 15 Fuel) * ($100 / 1150 Kreds) = 23 cents per raid.

Not that it’s worth it, though—if you’re dedicated to this game you’ll max out on buildings pretty quickly, so resources aren’t worth a whole lot, and there’s not really a leaderboard to tell you how many people you’ve raided.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / My gate is gone

One of my Showers disappeared, and I wasn’t even upgrading it (it was at max level already). I could build a new one, so it’s not a massive loss, but it’s worrying.

I’ve not gotten any Tasks after Riverside Heights (namely, for Trenton and for Docks so far). The wiki says there are supposed to be Tasks for all areas. What gives?

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Repeated failure to save

Three times now the game has failed to save after a mission and forces a refresh. None of the loot from the mission is saved, but the building is still locked. Could you fix this save issue, or at least not lock the building after a failed save?

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [CONSORTIUM] - List of small but helpful changes

Originally posted by TheRealPip:

Trio, the origional raids give a better payout so folks will be encouraged to do those raids. This gives new players a larger pool of people that are willing to do the older raids. I guess it was a problem before components were released that older raids were failing due to lack of players willing to do those raids (especially SoK and TS). So I doubt that the payouts will be leveled in the short term.

In the long term, though, all that means is that the middle raids are going to suffer. Right now there’s no reason to join Blight-set raids unless you’re a completionist who hasn’t finished them already—the cards aren’t as good as the newest set, and the Nexus payout isn’t as good as the original set.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [CONSORTIUM] - List of small but helpful changes

Some thoughts about Nexus Beacons:

1. Currently the best amount of damage to do in a raid in terms of Nexus per damage is 900. I think this should be changed so that higher amounts of damage are competitive—maybe make it 1 Nexus on average per 20 or 25 Honor.
2. I think all raids should follow the Nexus payout structure of the original raid set (or the above if that is implemented). The original raid set is easier to fight than the later ones, so there’s no reason to further penalize the newer raids. The current system just encourages Xeno Walker spam.

Didn’t realize this thread existed. In any case, if it’s more appropriate here:

Mission/Raid surging for surge damage on raids and 1.5x or 2x gold/XP/rep/pistons.

Shadow: how did you plug the card pool in to the sim? I wanted to start working on some decks for the quest, but have no clue how to put the card pool in without just selecting only certain cards from each set and running it.

Probably by modifying raids.xml to include a new “raid”.

Regular capacitors actually ended being very easy to come by. Though the mean cost is high in theory, there’s not much to spend gold on at the moment, and 2h tourneys come around quite often. I have 50 caps despite only playing gold-buyable sealed tournaments.
