Ammo is not affected by marathon mode.
The red ammo is affected because the steel uses double the amount of iron.

Re: I can't beat it...

Since I am trying to win without lasers and robots of any kind, I am doing a combination of turret creep, grenades, and poison capsules to clear the necessary nests. I even did flamethrower turret creep by an oil outpost which I never tried before. The flame turrets have greater range and just melt ...

I figured out how to post images. How exciting! Or did I?

Re: I can't beat it...

This is the current map I am playing on. I have installed the flamethrower turrets around the entire base and have changed over to red ammo and my pollution has gone way up. I am now on my way setting up production of advanced circuits. So I made it to safety without the modules by rushing to the fl...

Re: I can't beat it...

I tried playing the same map using different combinations of strategies. I agree that being aggressive on biter nests does not pay off. Attacking bases really bumps up the evolution a LOT!!! However, it is likely possible and even beneficial once the flame turrets are up. The real key to victory is ...

Re: I can't beat it...

Thank you for that link. I was surprised to see that language on the page for modules considering it is not on the page more specifically for efficiency modules. My bad for not being thorough enough.

Thanks for the info. You would think they would mention that in the wiki. That might be kind of important.

Re: I can't beat it...

The thing about efficiency modules is that they require advanced circuits. Getting those produced comes well after flame turrets can be built. However, I do use them in the miners once I get that far into the game. The question is, I know it decreases the electric being used by the miners by up to 8...

Re: I can't beat it...

Yes, coal rocks do not show up in straight up sand, but you do get a fair number of regular rocks. Coal rocks do appear in desert which is sometimes mixed in a little. The 2 oils spots are individual oil spots on the ground. Not a patch that may have a dozen or more oil spots. Oil never shows up in ...

Re: I can't beat it...

To @freeafrica, yes good work on your DW/M run. I will try and post a link to my start once I actually achieve something. I have now tried about 20 maps with these settings and lost them all. Obviously, since I am trying to maximize difficulty with default DW/M settings and just maximizing the terra...

Re: I can't beat it...

Yes, you are correct, the sand does absorb pollution, and I knew that. Sorry I phrased it that way... I suppose I meant to say it absorbs the least amount of pollution possible? After all, the map has to be made out of something. And yet, dirt with grass on it absorbs about 3 times as much pollution...

Re: I can't beat it...

Some good advice has been given. However, most of it is not possible to use since I can't even make it past oil processing. I also am trying to do this challenge without robots, lasers, or solar power. But those "self limitations" don't really matter in this challenge since the real problem is just ...

Re: I can't beat it...

The grenade advice would certainly work better than me using my repair packs trying to save the guns from being destroyed. However, I will have to get more practice in using them on the fly. The game doesn't exactly play like a first person shooter.

Re: I can't beat it...

Yikes it might have been a year since I was playing... Or perhaps a year since I started my last run. Once I got my flamethrower turrets up the fix on the spawners wouldn't really matter. Flamethrowers kill large groups efficiently. Thank you guys, both the spawner and collision fixes would explain ...

Re: I can't beat it...

Since I am playing on an almost all sand map with minimal trees, there is very little absorption of polluion. In the past, I learned that faster worked better. Perhaps I can try a minimalist base and defend it while slowly advancing through the techs? Not sure this will work. Since in deathworld mar...

I can't beat it...

I have played about 15 or so maps in 1.0 at about the hardest settings that are survivable. Deathworld Marathon, minimum moisture, maximum sand, minimum trees, water only in starting area. When I was playing 1.8 I was able to survive in 25-33% of these type of maps. Granted, it is a severe struggle,...
