Weekly Seed #97 [Beta 2.2] [Seed: QuantumSigixShield]
« on: October 06, 2017, 09:39:55 AM »

This week's seed: QuantumSigixShield



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!

Nice! Research branches always scare the hell out of me, but what a comeback (seems like you could've handled the earlier Testing escape opportunity a little better in hindsight, but researchers are scary and influence decisions like that :P). If you'd remembered the Reconstructor earlier that probably would've changed a lot, too. Easy to forget things like that since they don't come into play a whole lot.

Great writeup.
