This week's seed: DeliveryOmegaRecalibrator



The Weekly Seed is open to anyone, and we encourage you to share your experiences, stories, and tactics over the course of your run.

The rules are as follows:
  • The Weekly Seed begins from the date this thread is posted and lasts about seven days.
  • Make sure you are running the correct version of Cogmind (see thread subject).
  • Enter the seed and abort your current game to initiate the seed (more details are below).
  • Verify you are not running the tutorial and that the screenshots below match your game.
  • Play through the game once. This is a friendly event and we are all honest people.
  • When finished, post your scoresheet here (it should be the newest file in /scores) and any other screenshots/stories/strategies you wish to share with the community.
  • If you want to share details about the seed or your approach, make sure you use spoiler tags.
  • Due to the spoilerific nature of this thread, be sure to avoid reading details about the seed if you haven't completed your run.
  • As Cogmind now has multiple difficulty modes and challenges which will affect the world generation, by default it is assumed everyone is playing on regular difficulty with no challenges enabled. You are free to use whichever settings you wish, but if you intend on discussing it, be sure to specify what difficulty/challenges you're using!

Good luck and have fun!

Most humiliating run ever.  :(

I was trying to find a stockpile of lrg. or med. storage units, but after climbing to -8 Materials, I still couldn't find any! That results in a lack of backup weapons and armor, which isn't so bad as long as I don't get into much trouble.

And yet here I am, in a deep, deep trouble. Operators kept crying out for reinforcements, then watchers threw all those armies toward my direction, and those ARC's came in nonstop until I'm left almost dead. Although I survived with only 4 HP (yet fully equipped from leftover loots), a lone hunter found me and proceeded to aim at my core. A single shot is all it's needed to take me down.

The end. :(

Since there's only one storage stockpile per depth, even for combat run (which I always do :P) if I don't luck into finding any along the way I won't bother going out of my way to find one, since you can always stock up via haulers later on. If you really have to have storage early on, the alternative is to just take out Materials Haulers and go with mediums for a while. Mediums are easy to find and provide good enough storage for early-game confrontations.

Late to the party, as usual. Coming into this run, I decided, "I'm going to be a gunner, no flight this time." Then promptly passed up several great opportunities to get into a solid flight build. I got into the caves I found a
from the Tinker. Even with the sweet gun, things went downhill and I perished a slow death at the hands of many swarmers.

That's a nice find, though you do have to make a real effort to keep it protected since it's irreplaceable! (you'll find other interesting stuff later on, too :D)
