Post Re: No longer laughable...(Texas Toast's Shiplog)
Elios is about to start, so time for a quick update...

Image

Looks like a bit over 25k TACOs this month. Not too bad. Over 10k helmsman. 14 ranks.

Image

Only 7k NPC kills and less than a thousand hacks. Was a busy month with work, and I got distracted using my player actions on a guy that keeps tagging a planet so I can't use a temp flux.

Image

Not a lot of movement on the hacks leaderboard. I'm falling behind the top 3, will probably catch up to Ignatic in the next month or two.

Minerals 194104 units / hour (5.7 hours)
Artifacts 350032 points / hour (5.2 hours)
Research 313,856 research / hour (3.3 hours)

Production is holding steady, though I think last month I had more buffs active than I do right now. Often in the 360k arti/hour range lately.

Image

I've got over a dozen planets yet to be counted in those stats; one of these days I'll get around to fluxing 'em and adding 'em.

Unbuffed vs NPCs: Attack: 357965 / Defense: 308462 and in PvP: Attack: 331179 / Defense: 239205

would you think of having more energy to be more free in energy. for me it really helped me to push to auto rank stellar cartografy.or making pure arti planet

I pushed energy until I could do everything I wanted, then just kinda left it there. I rarely if ever run out of energy; my focus is on NPCing until I lose troop carriers followed by PvPing (mostly hacking.) So, energy isn't a concern.

On the rare occasion I do run out of energy, usually when taking down a tough base, I have over 250 tri-mats and energy cubes, and almost 2000 energy sacs. Usually I'll just burn some energy sacs until I rank off of whatever base I'm killing.

I'm sure I'll want more energy eventually, but ideally I'd like to be able to hit hyperports at max damage even after it debuffs me before I stop adding TACOs. More TACOs makes PvP marginally easier as well.

I've already finished almost every mission, and all of the high energy/low experience ones like Lutuma and Sileena, and when I was doing those I basically NPCed until I could rank off of the mission and then ran the mission until I did, then repeated until I was done for the day. But, that was a long time ago at this point. I normally have 15k-20k energy left over at most times I rank.

ok but its was just to help your to use the most of your xp by having more energy for doing whatever you want without searching xp in npc by example

I'm about to lose access to troop carriers. Why would I want to do things other than NPC until that happens?

There isn't really that much besides NPCing for me to do anyway. I've gone through all of the available content already and nothing new ever gets added anymore.

Meh. It's okay to have multiple goals. Doing just one thing is boring. I'm maximizing what I can on the NPC front, but I still want to spread my Bad Joke Badge Comms and work on my hacks count. I've been disabling a little less often to save on the experience (and to get through my PvP sessions faster.)

I do not understand whatever it is you just typed. I see some individual phrases that might make sense on their own but taken as a whole I can't make heads nor tails of whatever concept you are trying to get across there. Sorry.

Got more NPCing in during Elios than I have the last few seasonals, which was nice, but still not quite as much as I'd have preferred. That's the way it goes sometimes, though. Found 4 core mines, but accidentally used one on my Dyson 'cuz it was still listed as metallic in my spreadsheet and didn't bother to use some common sense, but wound up with a dozen or dozen and a half of them anyway all told (not sure how many I've already placed, and have 10 left.) I did decide to skip getting the medal, though, since I long-since turned all my volcanics into Demon planets and a cache with a couple of hours of production isn't worth the 5 GP. I'll wait and see if I find an abandoned project or a storage volcanic at some point to make it worth taking in order to get the medal.

Image

Added 14k TACOs in the last month, and should definitely hit 300k this month. Not sure how much longer I'll keep adding them; at least until I lose troop carriers, and ideally until I can hit max damage after debuffs on hyperports 'cuz why not? Not sure how much more I'll need than that, and might switch over to adding engineers again or maybe helmsman just to annoy other people. Don't really need anything more than what I have at this point. Though I suppose more TACOs would be helpful for some of the tougher bases.

Image

2000 hacks and 14k NPC kills. And, moved back to the 4th position on the hacks leaderboard:

Image

Minerals 211819 units / hour (5.3 hours)
Artifacts 374131 points / hour (5.0 hours)
Research 331856 research / hour (3.2 hours)

Production is making some pretty good gains. Got a half dozen bricked planets I still need to optimize. I've been falling behind on that, though I did add 8 or 10 planets to the spreadsheet over the last few days so I'm more than halfway caught up. Been flirting with 400k production after buffs but not quite made it there yet. Probably hit that at some point this month is my guess.

Image

Unbuffed vs NPCs: Attack: 375219 / Defense: 316970 and in PvP: Attack: 347141 / Defense: 245803

60k energy is pretty low for your rank .. but once you have the energy.intensive mission chains (corruption and silleena) out of the way, energy needs only depend on how often you will need to auto.rank for purgers.

as for tacos .. you join the balthion brigade in 8 ranks .. you need alot of attack to cap on those puppies .. i still haven't gotten there yet.

also, i'm always happy to see Ignatnic get passed on any leaderboard ;)

I know that it's a bit low, but I always have more energy than I need, and those rare occasions when I run out (such as when I am taking down a tough base) I have thousands of energy sacs and hundreds of energy cubes and tri-mats. And I have gone through pretty much all of the available missions already. Right now I'm producing plenty of purgers for my needs without running the mission and not planning to start grinding that again until I'm done w/finding troop carriers, not that that's very far off now.
