Paperclips game
« on: Thu, 19 October 2017, 01:00:40 »
Anyone else find themselves obsessed with playing it?

http://www.decisionproblem.com/paperclips/

Right now:
Paperclips: 137,744,829,354,811,000
Clips per Second: 466.00 trillion

I even dreamed about paperclips last night :eek:

Mind you, those figures are hopelessly out of date by the time I've typed the rest of this!

I'm playing it at home too (got in trouble for that last night - late for bed), but I haven't got as far as launching the drones yet.

The game is so different.

I don't know what's happening any more.

After you posted that link in the other thread, I had played it for a few hours and left it running all day. Then I accidentally closed out of the window/sad. Probably for the best haha

It's always nice to see an incremental game, that isn't a bad clone of Cookie Clicker. (Okay, the list is very short actually: it's Trimps and other but lesser Civ clones.)

Unfortunately, it's very poorly optimized and doesn't even appear to support saving (either through an exported string, or local storage). Yeah, I'm spoiled by Trimps and Cookie Clicker.

It saves your progress and continues on next time you open the tab.

Good on you for going for round 2. After I reached 100% I just eliminated the drift chance and called it a day. That said, it was 8 hours well spent.

My limiting factor right now is how much yomi I can gain. Is there any strategy that yields more? or are they all pretty much the same?

tbh, in the beginning not too much. basically wait til you get the perk that automatically runs tourneys for you. Then you just leave it on lol.. day and night..

I should add I'm on play through 2 lol
Good on you for going for round 2. After I reached 100% I just eliminated the drift chance and called it a day. That said, it was 8 hours well spent.

well it's relatively passive, I just leave my browser open at home lol. Anyway, in the upper corner it keeps track of world and sim level. I'm on world 1 sim level 2. I don't know that it's any different than the previous one, I wasn't paying attention before, however I'd like to see if it says anything different this time around. If not, maybe I'll call it quits. whooooo knooooows

That was a great friggin' game! The ending is great (I did not accept) and I'm glad I took that wild ride.  :thumb:

I've finished it twice now (once at home, once at work).

A colleague also finished it, but opted for a different ending, so I've got to play it through again to experience that ending too.

lol did you just leave it on?

I screwed up, it let me reallocate my points, so in order to cut the game short I dumped all my points into the max operations points stat, but I was one short with 69, so then I had to sit there and make a bajillion clips until I hit my next talent marker. I managed to slowly turn it around with 2 points into processors.. ugh gonna be awhile.

It was left running overnight once or twice.

The first time was not long after I started playing.  I had the investment thingy running and the next morning thought I had around $300K, but it turned out to be $300M!

I tried leaving it running over a weekend while exploring the universe, but it was still 0.0000000000000% on Monday morning.

I thought maybe Paperclips was a ploi to mine cryptocurrency through the browser but after a time of loading my network remained silent and my cpu/gpu unspiked. The can have all my furry cookies. It's fine.

An interesting thought, I hadn't considered that.

But I also didn't notice any unexpected bouts of network traffic or spikes in CPU/GPU usage/temperature.

And that's with sometimes 2 or 3 games going on at once.

No, just a minor fish obsession, and a kind of running joke.

Kinda funny how slowly the game seems to start off, then it ramps up pretty astronomically.

There's always a dead space in phase 2 for me.  Need 5 oct clips to go to phase 3, which doesn't flow like phase 1->2 for me.

Just turned auto-wire buying on again.

Kinda funny how slowly the game seems to start off, then it ramps up pretty astronomically.

There's always a dead space in phase 2 for me.  Need 5 oct clips to go to phase 3, which doesn't flow like phase 1->2 for me.

Such a shift in approach though.

I started again in a VM 'cause it thinks its window is on top all the time even if I minimise the VM window, and I'm about to release the HypnoDrones! :D :D :D

My favorite stage was definitely after releasing the Hypnodrones. While the stock trading and money was fun, the power balancing just struck a chord with me. Plus we are a hive-mind by that point and who doesnít enjoy a good hive-minding :cool:

Yes, the balancing of price per clip gets a bit annoying at times, especially before auto-wire-buying.

Once you get past that you can leave it running and it will just accumulate things.

Left it running over the long weekend and had over 400,000,000 creativity :eek:

How far do the Threnodies go?

Currently waiting for yomi to increase to get Threnody for the Heroes of Rivoli 16 (650,000 creat, 65,000 yomi).

Got over 43 million creat at the moment mwahahaha :D

It has a wiki?!?!

Shouldn't be surprised these days, nearly everything has a wiki :))

I found out for myself that the Threnodies seem to pretty much keep going indefinitely.

I got to Threnody for the Heroes of Berezina 12 and creat kept going up by 10,000 each time and yomi by 1,000.

I got to 1,500,000 creat and 150,000 yomi required (with loads of each to spare), and gave up.

Now I'm in universe 1 sim level 3 (in this particular browser on this particular operating system).
