Want to buy an orange lantern to go with it?  I'm only asking 68k for it.  :D

That was me. It's a fun little game so I felt like supporting them by purchasing a small credit pack.

The real appeal for me is that I can check on it a couple times a day, with no pressure to really be super active. I'm not very far progression wise though, and I made the mistake of moving without reading the entire consequence section for moving, now i have four days before i can move back and redo the melds I had. Other than that it is good for wasting some time.

P2W makes me feel like a dirty dirty cheater who can't play the right way.  Too bad I'm such a minority.

I don't even have all the green yet.  I did make 10 melds today tho.

Yeah, I've resisted the urge to buy mines with credits, preferring to spend years slowly AFK-grinding my way up.  I'm pretty sure the top players all P2W but I don't see what the point of the game is if you have an infinite money spigot.

I thought the point was to buy some currency if you wanted to support the developers.

I'd be much more inclined to buy credits to get cosmetic stuff; I just don't like buying a game advantage.  Although I did cave and buy a storage thing at one point because after months of waiting with the top bid out I still couldn't buy one with gold.  undecided

Yea that's what I meant too.. If the game is the grind, why would you skip it?  Why play at all at that point?

I've had this thing on the market for quite a while and didn't think it would ever sell at that price point.

Depends on the server, but generally, the first one you can afford.  In my case after I had 3 starter mines my first upgrade was a music mine (on Calbuco) since that's the next cheapest.  After that it was weapons.

I think my recent windfall is going to go into a ship mine.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Im on calbuco and running three starters pumping out gold. As I understand it you can only work three mines total? So I would have to sell a starter?

Yep.  You can own more than three, but you can't work them all (technically there is a gadget that lets you work a fourth mine temporarily).

What I did when I was moving up was sell a starter mine once I was at the point where the money from that sale would be enough to get me the next mine up.  The sooner you can start mining stuff that'll actually be worth something, the better.

Holy shit, I haven't logged in for a while and just found a stack of these in my messages:

PvP Reward: M-80

Congratulations! You are one of the top 1-10 players in the green-blue land and were rewarded a M-80 in your home city.

PvP Reward: Dynamite

Congratulations! You are one of the top 1-10 players in the red-orange land and were rewarded a Dynamite in your home city.

Turns out my small handful of skirmishes as a trader have put me at #6 for red-orange and #8 for green-blue, so until Japhet rethinks this scheme I'll be getting free explosives every day.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS 

I continue to be delighted with the way this game rewards my extremely sporadic attention.
