10 hours of my life o_o

Post by Cyndershade » Thu Nov 13, 2014 5:04 am

How... how did this happen.

Guys... help...

Probably game #4 or 5, but the first one where I got really into it, found a good spot I liked and went to town, this is the third base I put together in this place. I love this game.

Wow yeah not too bad of a base at all. :) hehe oh yes you will lose many hours with this glorious game. Personally I don't know if I have spent more hours playing or watching Let's Plays of it. It is so addicting to watch too. Lol :D

Anyone have any quick, handy tips for this base? I'm getting ready to call it quits on this map and start anew. Just learning about efficiency and all that jazz at the moment...

This, among a couple of other games i'm currently playing(COH2, farming sim15) are so time consuming that I'm thinking I need another whole lifetime just to cover all my gaming fun. I still have to fit in my actual fulltime job and social life..lol...Why do we have to sleep, I could really use those 7hours! :lol:

70 hours in a single game and still haven't conquored the infinite world. Infact just having trouble supplying my current energy/resource requirements.

Nice effort so far. The first thing, that comes to my mind, is that you should try to direct insert copper cables into your electric circuit factories. If you are some kind of perfectionist: The perfect ratio is 3 copper cable factories to 2 electric circuit factories.

Like this:

Another tip: Always try to not do anything yourself. By that, I mean things like carrying resources from A to B (for that you have belts, trains, robots...). If you do so, you have more time exploring, building new factories, killing some biters and such.

I hope this helps a little.
