Topic: Reactor idle / Gas Burners

Originally posted by Mayhem7:

After an hour of testings (loading loading loading… tro try different setups with different upgrades) there’s something clear:
DON’T USE HEAT SINKS, they lose much more than 5%, i don’t know why, but with similar setups maxed i lose up to 40% WITH A SINGLE SINK (that’s not 5% per sink so there’s a bug probably), then, maxing generators max heat capacity is the best solution for me, boilers around, basically exchangers + generators + boilers across the map with highest heat creator you have (nuclear cell etc) and max the heat till extreme (i have my generators in red 24/7)

It’s not a bug, it’s placement. If you place the sink right at your main generators, they will eat half of the output and never give it out, hold it in until that 5% loss equals per-tick absorbtion of the sink and so it sits stable.

Yeah, +4 ticks is a really big deal with this game.

there are 4 generators at this time, 5 offices, and boilers are kinda sitting in it’s sad dusty corner after nukes roll out.

also, in what way is it unbalanced?

Research generation is not in balance with the growth of everything due to lack of higher tier offices.

Boiler/drygen/wetgen are also technically imbalanced but that’s not really a problem.

Topic: Reactor idle / Water Pump build?

Well obviously with unapgraded thermo cells you need somewhat lower levels.
For 2:1 you need 18 max water in generators, that’s about twenty trillions. Then just up the water pumps as high as they can go and you can start converting the area to thermocells for as far as your water pipes can carry.

Anyway, you can probably get a water-cooled 1-1 nukes setup going as well.

The bank is in the research, duh. It multiplies output of adjanced offices 2.5 times.

Pretty sure there are only two research centers in the game right now. Shamefully.

Topic: Reactor idle / So... ...Erm... ...What builds are there, exactly...?

There are some variants in Gas vs Nuclear thread and the water builds thread.

But really, generally anything works as long as you pull out the maximum heat from your powercells and into generators.

it’s so people can’t close their game, fast forward the clock by a year and have bonus ticks out their ears.

If they didn’t block that off, you can just fast forward three years instead and get yer ticks (given OP’s 3 to 1 conversion)

Topic: Reactor idle / Water Pump build?

Ah okay. So should I strive for a 1:1 for Nukes at this point then? I’ve unlocked Thermo but haven’t upgraded any of it or water stuff. As it stands, I’d need 17 Gen2 to cool 1 Thermo, and would need 5 Thermos to catch up to where I am on Nukes lol.

Water stuff is GOOOOOD. It multiplies your generators by four and up times (currently x8.3 for me).

Also just upgraded to Thermo 2:1 setup, only problem is getting water supply into lower right corner
60 lvl generator effectiveness; 20 level generator water; 10 level water pump; 3 level thermo cell, gets me 2.25 billion/tick.

Topic: Reactor idle / Idle game, BUSY CPU.

I’m running it in FF and having no problems, it’s eating up between 0.5% and 2% only.

Topic: Reactor idle / Gas Burner Vs Nuclear Cell

That seems interesting :D what upgrades do you guys have that you can cool nuclear cells that well? Or is the nuclear cell output just way behind generator upgrades and such?

I kinda wanna have more energy cells but atm I need about 4 generators per energy cell, although I probably could reduce that number a bit with good water cooling (which is why I’m asking for your upgrades)
my stuff:

I’ve got 13 levels of nukcell (21.8mil heat), 59 levels generator effectiveness (4,7mil) and 18 levels generator water (277+k water; up to 27.7mil heat absorbtion). lvl9 water pump to feed it all.
Upgrade levels on nuclear cell and water max are going nearly hand in hand, currently next ones cost 18 and 16 trillions. Always do the math before buying in case you start burning up.

>I kinda wanna have more energy cells but atm I need about 4 generators per energy cell, although I probably could reduce that number a bit with good water cooling (which is why I’m asking for your upgrades)
Yea I was running 3-4 generators per nuclear cell too. But as you currently see, having water cooling increases the potential heat absorption of a generator SEVENFOLD, while saving space from 4x gen.

Noice.

Sloppy because I started building from the top, but eh.
Of course depends on your upgrades ratios – I’m currently sitting on an unbought nuclear upgrade because that would melt the whole peninsula.

On topic of the challenge… Commendations being given to only the best three players of the game on the whole site is kinda harsh, isn’t it?

You get commendation if and only if your faction wins some points in the daily quest you participated.

And as a downside to it getting fixed: it now does hurt. A lot, takes about two platinum ores to fix one doze.
So take caution when gathering.

Edit: However, when I switched to level 1 plating it stopped damaging. A bug or a safety feature for newbies to not get instantly exploded by it? :D

Edit2: Hmhmhm, level 1 and 2 plating doesn’t get damaged, level 3 gets destroyed in about 4 dozes.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Glean 2] Frustrated. Can't figure out how to upgrade.

Land on a planet, click on the ? in the top-right corner. That’ll take you to the help menu. Then check about the research nexus (second icon in the Shuttle section)
Then go and research stuff.

You’ll also need to go deeper than your “safe” depth on terrestial and aquatic planets sooner or later anyway. Just start using lower quality materials to repair on the go.

It IS at the max. And with 25 buff it takes about five resource nodes to fill it all.
I’m suggesting adding more upgrades to it.

As far as I can tell the main source for them is the daily/weekly/monthly quests. Win and get a commendation. Then buy some warp fuel and do a challenge. If you win, you get a little more commendations.

That’s still hella slow, but them’s the grind games.

More cargo space, at least post game. Whenever the boosts get going, it gets filled out REALLY DAMN FAST.

Ozone shows up at either 150 or 170 and higher. The sizes vary a bit, I think, so it’s really up to flying around and stumbing into it.
Also, it doesn’t show up at ANY optics level and never does damage, the description is wrong.

Sorry guys, but that’s too late now. Nobody’s gonna recheck the game news and up the rating because they withdrew the bribe offer.

I wonder if the game will drop below 3 :D
