    Also, with the recent Halloween update, I've noticed one really annoying change.

    Cookie chains cookies now disappear VERY quickly.

    Like, I often miss it it before even getting into the billions at this point.

    To be fair, they seem to occur more frequently, but fuck all good that does.

    Woo, I got 666 billion before the next cookie disappears in literally one second. That sure is a whole lot, compared ot the meager 15 billion a second that I'm producing, which doesn't include the 50% my wrinklers are absorbing.

    So yeah, they're kinda worthless now. :P

    If you shrink the window right down so there's only a tiny area for the cookies to spawn, getting the full chain is super easy.

    Huh. I may try that though I'm not sure I can pull that off without missing the next cookie. :P

    I think they speed up as they go, so you have plenty of time after the first one.

    I've been trying that, actaully, and it works surprisingly well.

    Too bad the chain nearly always ends with 14 or fewer cookies.

    I mean, I'm producing a default 167 billion a second now, which puts my total production at just over 1 trillion a second with 10 wrinklers.

    So when the chain ends at 66 trillion, which requires a fair bit of luck considering there's a 15% chance of the chain automatically breaking from the 5th cookie onward, that's little over one minute's worth of my day. It's nice to get that, but it's not exactly exploding my wallet. :P

    Ignoring the 1% chance to break on each click after the fifth, chains end when the next cookie would give you more than 21600*unwithered_CpS or 25% of the cookies currently in your bank. Once your income hits 360 billion CpS (ignoring all wrinkler effects) and you have at least 31.1 quadrillion cookies banked the chain will reach the 7.7 quadrillion cookie (8.4 for the whole chain) which makes them much more worthwhile.

    They're also nice if you're going for the 7777 golden cookies clicked achievement.

    So, after letting the game run overnight I popped all the wrinklers and purchased the last few antimatter condensers, and then the upgrade that comes when you get 100 of those.

    Pushed my CpS to just over 200 billion.

    THen got a lucky cookie that gave me a 7x multiplier.

    And then , before it wore off, another one that multiplied my clicking by 777.

    Hooooly shit, dem numbers.

    there are ways around getting most (but not all) of the high level stuff from the side streets

    How do I get a visitor for this Halloween thing? I've been trying for like a week now and I haven't gotten a card!

  • BucketmanBucketman Call me SkraggRegistered User regular
    Wait, I can't add friends in Fallen London unless I know them on Facebook?

  • Indie WinterIndie Winter die Krähe Rudi Hurzlmeier (German, b. 1952)Registered User regular
    or twitter

    and the cards are random, which can really suck. you can summon them, but that costs nex

    the halloween events end tomorrow though, so that may be an option you'd want to consider

  • Indie WinterIndie Winter die Krähe Rudi Hurzlmeier (German, b. 1952)Registered User regular
    if you don't wanna waste nex then PM me, pretty sure I can find a link to a google doc that describes what every visitor gets you, text and reward and all

    ah nop wait, you can add friends not through FB or the Twitters

    you just gotta know their username and you can add them through the storynexus system

    Inviting friends through FB doesn't work for me. I can choose a friend from the dropdown, but when I hit Submit, I get a blank white screen and don't spend an action or expend the card. I did contact support, and so far they've tried once to fix it (unsuccessfully). Has this happened to anyone else?

  • YaYaYaYa Decent. Registered User regular
    oh yay I got my soul back

    other than spending the Nex that wasn't that hard

    4th tier professions will soon be available! can't wait to upgrade to Midnighter. Though I'm seriously considering backtracking and re-upgrading as an Echosit - the prospect of being a ruthless Victorian businessman appeals to me too much

    I pick up fallen london again after a long time away and immediately find a undiscardable opportunity card about a conflict between two of my pets

    the results were unpleasant

    either I picked the wrong side or the whole thing's a punishment for having too many pets


    dang it game let me enjoy playing you

    Not really sure where to post this but I figured this would be of some interest to the thread even if it does need a tiny download: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/130011-UPDATE-Try-Yahtzee-Croshaws-New-Game-Consuming-Shadow

    Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee's beta testing his new game consuming shadow for free. It's pretty much an exploration game on a dead Rising style timer and it's fairly creepy. Considering the nature of the game I'll put my first death in spoilers.
    Turns out, if you're below max sanity one of the menu options at any given time, just for a split second flashes to 'shoot yourself'. If you click at this moment, the predictable happens and your investigator is no more.

    And I had finally gotten my first spell too, maybe casting it right before I left a dungeon just 'as a test' was unwise.

    why is Fallen London giving me 40 actions instead of 20

  • Indie WinterIndie Winter die Krähe Rudi Hurzlmeier (German, b. 1952)Registered User regular
    because they've doubled their actions till the end of december and you're an exceptional friend so you get twice the bonus

    Ha! it took a full week, a few very lucky Tower of Eyes cards, grinding Private Suppers like crazy and spending a point of Nex, but I finally got my tier 4 profession. I'm now a Midnighter: a super spy with connections to a mysterious order of the church, and whose orders I finish executing by "praying" to a special shrine whose Irrigo light causes me to forget what it is I've even done. As Payment, I get four Favours in High Places a week, along with some light drinking bombazine cloth and some interesting letters that clearly don't belong to me.

    The lady with the white scarf keeps her name in a box on the mantelpiece. She has played the Great Game since she left the orphanage, the secret centre of a network that reaches across the Unterzee. She has no enemies. Her system is perfect. She has beaten the Game, and she is bored.

    A dangerous mood. She crosses the room where she works, eats, and sleeps, the cleverly-made boards of its floor piping beneath her. She takes down the box. The hair fixed across the lid’s join is unbroken. It has kept her safe, this box. Inside is a memento of the orphanage. When tedium threatens she looks upon it, remembers how close she came to losing everything, and returns to her safe, sensible habits. Why does the box feel so light?

    On Simple Street, a detective fishes a file from a drawer: 'Blackwood Orphanage', the cover reads. She reads it every month, hoping to find something she's missed. The orphanage was her first day on the job. Ten minutes a copper and pulling corpses from the smoke, their skin crackling like well-fried bacon. She opens the file, and sees a piece of paper she has never seen before. It is a transfer of guardianship: a young lady was transferred from the orphanage's care, to that of a notable couple. Very notable indeed.

    Your shrine to St. Joshua is draped in irrigo. Once you’ve finished the rites, you barely remember them. You pull your old chess-piece from your pocket and consign it - and the memories it sustains - to the altar-fire.
