Weekly Seed #94 [Beta 2.1] [Seed: ReactiveFactoryRailgun]
« on: September 06, 2017, 01:15:42 AM »

This week's seed: ReactiveFactoryRailgun



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!

Spoiler: Scoresheet (click to show/hide)

Ok run I guess... nice to get this far with an average speed < 100 playstyle/build. Got to try out Storm Laser which was pretty awesome while it lasted. Despite evolving 4 weapon slots most of the important killing was facilitated by Quantum Capacitor + best energy cannon/other offense processors and utilities. Coolant Injector style heat sinks are broken good... they also feel pretty necessary when wasting 4 slots on Adv. Heat Sinks fails to keep heat at acceptable levels. I think my biggest mistake was barely spending any time on -2... I should've spent more time there trying to build up a Zionite army or at least stock up on launchers + armor and other defensive utilities. Regardless I managed to fight my way through about 1/3rd of -1 before a group of 6 Hunters overwhelmed me. I had pretty bad luck with Garrison placement. I know there are typically 4 on each Factory level, but how many are on -1?

-1 has 6 :) (but it's also the largest floor, so it balances out)

And it was odd to see where you died there--I thought for a second you were still doing the SG challenge :P. Where were you doing in there? Entered as a way to try to escape?

Injectors are definitely better, though they're also not quite as easy to acquire as the regular ones, and eventually they'll burn out...

I hate Hunters xD
