Awesome choices.

Topic: Kongregate / Im so sick of idle games

They’re fun to have up in the background while you do other stuff. I personally enjoy progressing in a game while actually being productive (such as doing homework).

They can also be nice to have up while just chatting with people (a little bit more in depth compared to something like Just Chatting).

I just earned it by doing a 3 day goblin run. A little time consuming, but not difficult at all (I had 3.418e19 gems)

Topic: Realm Grinder / Unlocking dwarves/drow?

Something I not sure about: for Dwarves, is the 800 Inn unlock requirement just a one time thing, or do I need to get to 800 inns every time I want to align with that faction?

8 days total, or 8 days in a row?

Topic: Realm Grinder / [Suggestions]

We were tossing this around in chat a little bit earlier today, and it would be interesting to have some sort of upgrade that gives a production bonus to buildings based on the number of excavations you have done (as an incentive for continuing to do it past the 50 required for the scarab trophy, because otherwise that feature becomes useless).

Is it possible to update the first post with scientific notation?

Topic: Transport Defender / [Feature] Big Damn/Darn Headlights

Hmm. Valid point. I hadn’t thought of that.

Edit: Ok, I changed it to be per second instead of per shot. Does that sound a little more balanced?

Topic: Transport Defender / [Feature] Big Damn/Darn Headlights

Big Damn/Darn Headlights (Not sure which you would want to go with, due to the mild obscenity)

“No power in the ’verse can stop me.”

Max Level: 10
Cost: 200*level per level

Bonus (on lvl 1): Additive increase chance to instantly kill a random non-boss enemy by .01% per second

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

I think it would be neat to have the ability to sell a single level of a feature. For example, if we increased jumphole generator just a little bit too much, right now we need to sell the entire feature and then re-level it, which is very inconvenient.

Edit: some of the scientific notation is weird. For example, my next level of Greedy Lord gets awarded at 1000e99. Why not just 1e102?

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

I think the color sorting could use some improvement. For example, shades that are similar aren’t really next to eachother, and for some reason my white color crystal is ending up inside the section with all of the redish ones (and someone in chat said the same thing happens with black).

The description should update to something more useful when you refresh. You’re several versions behind.

I’m honestly surprised nobody did this sooner. Very nice job.

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

It might be fun to add some more achievements. I could easily see an achievement for having x total of MK upgrades on weapons. Also, in addition to the boss kills we already have an achievement for, the stats page tracks alien kills, so why not have an achievement for that?

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

I have several problems with the ‘Mouse Breaker’ achievement:

  • 2.5m clicks is an incredibly unrealistic number. While you can do this in under 10 hours if you maintain a rate consistant with the world record for clicks per second (71.4 from what I could find), you’re looking at 46-69 hours if you can maintain a realistic 10-15 clicks per second. That’s 2-3 full days of nonstop clicking. That’s nuts.
  • This high number all but forces anybody who wants to earn this achievement to either a) develop repeated stress injuries, or b) use an autoclicker. While I realize that large numbers of people use autoclickers in games like this, essentially forcing people to use one punishes those who choose to play legitimately (which doesn’t seem like very good game design; please don’t take this the wrong way, this is just how I feel, and I know there will be those that disagree with me).
  • If you did intend for people to have to use an autoclicker to get this achievement, ‘Mouse Breaker’ isn’t a very descriptive name, since the people who will be earning it aren’t actually using their mouse at all.

Topic: Transport Defender / [Feature]New weapon - Recursive Cannon (or Cannon Cannon)

The basic idea is that it’s a weapon that fires projectiles that look like itself. So, a cannon that fires cannons instead of bullets.

The nice thing from a development standpoint, because you only need to design a single art asset: the cannon. There’s no need to design separate projectiles.

Due to the nature of firing a cannon from a cannon, this weapon would be high damage but slow fire rate.

Hatred is the most violent thing there is. Nothing as bloody has ever been released. Why isn’t it banned? Next they’ll have us see people getting dismembered or tortured.

At least in the United States, it hasn’t been banned because video games are protected as free speech under the first amendment, as determined by the supreme court case Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association.

Topic: Transport Defender / Disable Heavy Turret Projectile

There’s a bug that if you hide the projectile for the HT, it doesn’t do any damage. I tested this against boss 680. With the projectiles hidden, it took 15 seconds to beat (not aiming, so just shooting right down the middle). With it visible, still not aiming, it took 5 seconds.

Edit: I just did a test in the first zone with nothing but the HT bought. Projectile hidden, I put the mouse right over enemy ships, and nothing took any damage.

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

I know. I’m talking about after the first 100 (to make it easier to focus on getting everything to 200 rather than having end weapons at 150 while earlier ones are at 600), and so on.

Or, I know a couple of times I’ve had caps on (such as 200 to get all the reassemblies), and it was a bit of a pain to switch everything back to 0 to just go by whichever was cheaper/best dps without a cap (since I had to change 19 separate numbers all from 200 to 0)

Topic: Transport Defender / Improvements

[Feature] I think it would be great to have the option to set the max autobuy number for all weapons, rather than having to change all of them individually. This would make it a lot more convenient to be able to aim for certain numbers (for example, to utilize the Nuclear Reactor).

Also, being social.

Topic: Off-topic / think of any number

do you not understand words

Yes, I understand words. ‘That’ as a pronoun is rather vague. I explained how I interpreted it in my first line.

Topic: Off-topic / think of any number

I thought of the number 8. Therefor, ‘that number’ is 8.

add 1 to that number

Ok. 1 + 8 = 9

subtract 1 from that number
Ok. 8 – 1 = 7

now your number = your original number

Well, my number (referring to the number I thought of) is 8. My original number (the one I thought of) is 8. 8 == 8, so I guess technically that works. Seems a bit of a roundabout way to prove the law of identity, but I’ll roll with it.
