    How about an upgrade to that that allows your vision to pick what you get, too?

    How much does it cost?

    Price is important.

    6666 is my number.
    And now for out-of-place advertising. Even though it's going to be outdated pretty soon.

    For his I would say about 1 trillion and for mine I would say 5 trilion.

    WAY too damn cheap. People get Septillions when they get far enough into the game. Trillions is nothing for an ability that's so good. Especially yours - choosing what'll happen if you click a golden cookie = Free Clicking Frenzies, Dragonflights and Elder Frenzies.

    Then for his I would say about 10 quadrillion and for mine I would say 50 quadrillion.

    Pick what you want is basically debug, so I wouldn't go for that. Mine is perhaps an ascension upgrade, maybe like 100 trillion into the "second game" - but maybe you'd have to have a certain milk % or something else to preface it.

    Still way too cheap for the ability to cause a Dragonflight or Click Frenzy on literally every Golden Cookie.

    10 septillion, then. Mine would be 50 septillion.

    i thought about dt200's upgrade. and, i found a number that seems fair. the reason why your upgrade is so overpowered is that you didn't take into consideration how quickly your upgrade would be paid back.
    so, i think that 1.13 octilion cookies221.48 octilion cookies would be a fair-ish price. since, a lot of the effects are really powerful, since they last for quite a bit of time. and, with all golden cookie upgrades, golden cookies can spawn very quickly.
    even then, it may be a bit underpriced, since it the lowest possible reward of " Lucky !"( that's not 9), but, it assumes you have 500 of every building, so i hope it balances out.
    extra note :
    so it doesn't pay back quickly, i multiplied the first number with 666.

    edit :
    crossed text = not taking eldeer into consideration
    bolded text = taking eldeer into consideration( eldeer gives you 22 hours of production. it didn't scale too much, because i don't want to overprice it either, so i considered how much time passes until you get a golden cookie.. not to much, though)

    edit2 :
    doubled the cost since it's much easier to get eldeer with that upgrade. if it's a bit overpriced, round it to 200 octillion cookies.

    edit3 :
    332.55 septillion cookies for a quick payback
    300.3 septillion cookies for a quick payback( rounded value)

    i think i made an original forum game... not sure, though. if you want to play along : http://forum.dashnet.org/discussion/15299/the-gray
    you can imagine it says grey instead of gray, though.
  • dusty_58dusty_58 Posts: 9Member
    No no no this is all way too much. I wouldn't care to even try to get this if I knew I had to get that far into the game. And I still say no on the "pick what you want" version.

    Well, I do have something that might work:

    Random cookie generator (pretty shitty name, I know)
    Allows you to re-roll a golden cookie's effect once.

    Cost: 777,777 heavenly chips

    It could also be a switch like the dragon where if you want to use your C-Ray vision to see what a golden/wrath cookie contains, it pops all wrinklers immediately and costs $1B cookies each time
  • AgubhaguAgubhagu Posts: 392Member ✭✭
    you don't need to put the dollar sign
    anyways, a few billion cookies for that seems reasonable, if it increases the more cookies you have

    Maybe it could reduce the effectiveness of the golden cookies, but let you see what the effect will be.

    This would make eldeer too easy

    It should be like a switch, -40% effect for knowledge.
