    minin workers not hauling refuse to pile

    True, I should specify what I meant by long term. Basically of course you would want more refuse storage, but what's more worth it is having the refuse go down faster. Because even with all that storage, if refuse still piles up, then you'll eventually have to make new storage anyway. If you...

    minin workers not hauling refuse to pile

    Upgrading refuse isn't worth it at all. Building more refuse storage will make the refuse go down faster than upgrading, so unless your on a time crunch and don't want to dig tiles, always build more refuse tiles as in the LONG TERM, it will be better.

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    Just today a new record has been set - all aphids on night one but one have been received. The one that was not collected was the southwest and I was barely short of workers. However, this marks a beginning of a path that overcomes the tree frogs on the northeast side of the map. We have...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    Since the first time day one has been surpassed with 85 ants, thing have been improving. The attack wave is getting easier. My ant count is increasing. Plans are being developed and optimisation is being made constantly, even in runs which aren't directed toward it. The first time I abandoned...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    With the rediscovery of mantdiflying, the most optimal night one has never been closer. Now above 85 ants can consisently be created by the start of night one thanks to the pinecone, and a swapping up of strategies might create a possible way to get above 90 ants consistently, most optimally 101...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    Okay so slowly things are meeting the time we have to get the southwest aphids so we don't get overloaded by pine woods tree frogs. I looked into gathering the northwest food before killing the two frubs guarding it and this has been successful, except for the fact that we get short from 100...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    A new record has just been made, succeeding the last record by nine ants, or 180 food, and it's all because of the northeast pinecone. The problem is that diverting more ants to gather the northeast pinecone is slower and doesn't allow us to collect the grubs and northeast nest food in time, we...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    Okay, time to get back to this challenge which I have not because parents. I'm rewriting the strategy for night two and day three ahead of time just to make sure I get this info in, and then I'll attempt the challenge again. I'm also going to fully switch to the pinecone rather than collect the...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    After completing a hard run, things have begun happening for the strategy after day two. For night two, things are looking grim for extra aphids. They might be necessary later on but that's future Incandescent's problem. Other than that though, there is a set of aphids on day three that we...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    So it's fair to say that things are happening, just slowly. While the last few runs may have hovered around 397 ants, the most recent run got 390, an improvement of 140 food, somehow. Slowly it gets easier and easier with practice, and I'm still looking in to gathering that northeast pinecone. I...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    So first run of the day, and things have been kicking off VERY WELL. We reached 90 ANTS by the end of day one, which is five more than the previous and we inch just a bit closer to getting those aphids. The amazing part is that this doesn't require perfect execution of the strategy, it just...

    Cold Blood on Hard with Workers Only

    So Napoleon came and wrecked this challenge with his third try, and was awarded Senior ICS for the achievement. I would like to congratulate him for it. This was a truly amazing accomplishment and makes insane possible.

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    Unfortunately the mantidfly does its job too well for our workers and I am unable to successfully collect the eastern pinecones in any way. However, hope has presented itself elsewhere: it might be possible to gather the northeast pinecone on DAY ONE using just TWENTY ANTS. That's it. This could...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    So recently a number of problems that were previously nonexistent have presented themselves. These problems need to be addressed because they reduce the consistency of winning day one, which is something we better get out of the way now. First of all, we need more ants. My most recent runs that...

    A Bridge Too Far on Insane with Workers Only

    So major things have been happening, and yet this is only the beginning. Most importantly, getting passed the first day has secured itself as a consistent completion. In other words, the first day wave will NO LONGER be a roadblock. However, a new problem has been presented as you might have...
