  • After catching up on the updates, looks like 100 is maximum mana. I guess the plan is to focus sugar lumps on chancemakers, time machines, and prisms for now then. Once I get the three of them to lvl 10 then I'll have to decide what makes the most…
  • I remember when I used to occasionally play actively. It seems a long time since I had the urge to do that, apart from the short time at the start of each run until I reach Golden Switch stage. Ah, memory.
  • You get the same sale value of the building back, whether you sell it early or wait until the end of the run. The only reason for selling any building before the end of the run is to bring the number to less than 400 so that SE can give you another …
  • Yeah, I crept up on those last few points I needed for the 7, 777, and 777,777 by ascending just before the mark essentially to reset my CpS. (And getting extra ascensions toward that achievement.) OK, I see. I guess that's an alternative to sell…
  • You can do it in steps. First you save until you can pay the price for the last one (78M HC) Then you switch Short numbers off under Options. Then you reset, see exactly how many Prestige levels you have, lets say 1,500,000,000. Then you ascend and…
  • Hardcore and neverclick are not hard to get at all, just tedious.
  • Sugar lumps are a significant boost to production, but only in the long term sense. By "long term" I mean times in the order of years. That's because each increase in the level of a building gives a 1% increase in its production, meaning that in the…
  • Further thoughts on using Spontaneous Edifice: Currently in my beta game I am at 400 AM Condensers, 400 prisms, 378 Chancemakers, and more than 400 of everything else. This is not the optimal distribution, but it's what has resulted from repeated u…
  • but if you skip Season Savings and Faberge Egg you can increase your Spontaneous Edifice CPS by around 2%. Woo! That's true, but if you don't have those two upgrades it will take you longer to get to 400 buildings in the first place. Whether this…
  • There are a lot of things that can give a big boost that I hardly ever use, such as Godzamok. The thing is, once I turn Golden Switch on for the run, I hardly ever turn it off anymore. Getting the most out of the Golden Cookies, getting all the clic…
  • ^^ Ads that display videos should be banned. I try to make sure never to patronise any advertiser that uses them, but it probably makes no difference anyway as they are seldom advertising anything I am interested in buying.
  • Is this something that only happens to people using Chrome? I don't use Chrome, and I have never had this issue. An interesting thing to try would be to have two instances of the browser running simultaneously (not just two tabs) and see if the gam…
  • Try to just delete the cache. Seems to me that's what mega is trying to avoid doing, since it would almost certainly remove all record of his progress. Not that I can think of any other solution.
  • One might also argue that the word "Bakery" should be optional. I might prefer to call it "Bob's Cookie Emporium". I guess there has to be a limit to customiseability.
  • From the point of view of getting the ten levels achievement, it makes no difference which levels are upgraded first. Therefore, it seems to me that while all the levels are less than ten, the best strategy is to at each point level up the building …
  • Yes, turn off those cursors and the falling cookies. They give me the willies! Seriously - I loaded your save and have not fully analysed it but there seems nothing seriously wrong with your setup. Any particular reason you have not bought Warp Dri…
  • Make sure you have the requisite number of heavenly chips in the bank before going for them: they cost 777, 77,777 and 77,777,777 chips respectively. I tried this several times after my last evolution. I even created a save point at about 770 pr…
  • I go the full grandmapocalypse, since I do mostly idle play these days. I get the extra production, and the absence of golden (or wrath) cookies is not a consideration. The other advantage is that it makes wrinklers respawn faster, so it reduces the…
  • In the cookieverse, cookies are the dominant lifeform and are at the top of the food chain, and people are considered a delicacy.
  • ^^ Omelette supposedly makes other eggs appear faster, which I suspect is the reason it's popular for an upgrade slot. Basically the argument about easter egg upgrades vs other upgrades boils down to how far advanced in the game you are. At my curr…
  • Definitely octillion fingers (or whatever is the highest fingers you can afford) for the first one. After that, I think a lot depends on how you play the game and what stage you're at. I think any additional kitten gives a bigger CpS increase than …
  • I prefer nutty crunchy ones, but certain gooey ones have their place. Anzac bikkies are nice. I must say I do have pause for thought now every time I scan a 12-pack of Anzac biscuits at the SM checkout. Twelve is not very many in the context of Cook…
  • I believe my reasoning would still apply if you are using the above strategy involving Spontaneous Edifice. It's definitely worth considering that in a normal run, but I'm not sure that the cookies generated by buildings are even relevant with thi…
  • I thought the cost of each spell was dependant on the number of wizard towers you have. I think there may be a formula on the Wikia. I think the maximum number of magic points (what everyone seems to be calling "mana" - I still don't know where that…
  • Sounds good! The only minor disagreement I have is that it's still worth buying a building the normal way - or, equivalently, not selling it - provided the run is expected to continue for long enough so that the extra production more than compensa…
  • A computer game that does not mirror real life. Whatever next? Are you telling me this game is not real life? If it were in real life, the universe would be half-buried in cookies. You say that as though it were a bad thing.
  • I think most forum members play this forum in "idling" mode.

  • Lucked out indeed. I've been playing CC for over a year and i have yet to get an Elder frenzy/Reindeer combination even once. Yesterday I almost had one - the reindeer appeared a split second too late. ...and tonight the drought has broken - I got…
  • I guess I'm missing something here, but I can't see why it matters if the counter behaves oddly or jumps around when the game is not in focus, provided that everything returns to the correct value when it's brought back into focus.
