I could argue that it gets better....

edit: but that's coming from a guy who has made a billion paper clips and has too much money in my portfolio

It turned my cell phone into a portable heater for 24 hours, going through three charge cycles, but that first billion was the best.

Let me know what you think of the drifters' proposal. I rejected it, and now wonder what might have been.

You can use dev commands in JS console to skip the waiting. Once you'll open the source you'll see those things commented out.

  <button id ="save1Button" onclick="save1()">SAVE SLOT 1</button>

<button id ="load1Button" onclick="load1()">LOAD SLOT 1</button><br />

<button id ="save2Button" onclick="save2()">SAVE SLOT 2</button>

<button id ="load2Button" onclick="load2()">LOAD SLOT 2</button><br />

<button id ="resetButton" onclick="reset()">RESET ALL PROGRESS</button><br />

<button id ="freeClipsButton" onclick="cheatClips()">Free Clips</button><br />

<button id ="freeMoneyButton" onclick="cheatMoney()">Free Money</button><br />

<button id ="freeTrustButton" onclick="cheatTrust()">Free Trust</button><br />

<button id ="freeOpsButton" onclick="cheatOps()">Free Ops</button><br />

<button id ="freeCreatButton" onclick="cheatCreat()">Free Creativity</button><br />

<button id ="freeYomiButton" onclick="cheatYomi()">Free Yomi</button><br />

<button id ="resetPrestige" onclick="resetPrestige()">Reset Prestige</button><br/>

<button id ="destroyAllHumansButton" onclick="cheatHypno()">Destroy all Humans</button><br />

<button id ="freePrestigeU" onclick="cheatPrestigeU()">Free Prestige U</button>

<button id ="freePrestigeS" onclick="cheatPrestigeS()">Free Prestige S</button>

<button id ="debugBattleNumbers" onclick="setB()">Set Battle Number 1 to 7</button><br />

<button id ="availMatterZero" onclick="zeroMatter()">Set Avail Matter to 0</button><br />

Use the sourcery to your advantage! :P

Hey, thanks. The cheatTrust() function seems a bit unprincipled, but looking at the source satisfied my curiosity about the alternative paths without having to make any more of those paperclips.

You can directly set a whole variety of variables. I didn't cheat trust, I just changed it directly.

    var maxTrust = 50;

You might as well do stuff like this in JS console:

  function helper () {

funds *= 1000;

unusedClips *= 1000;

clips *= 1000;

yomi += 1; yomi *= 1000;

creativity += 1; creativity *= 1000;


and call helper() from JS console every time you need it. All of those variables can be modified without triggering any cheat flags or other such things.

I must not have noticed the drifter's proposal...

wasoxygen  ·  465 days ago  ·  link  ·  

You can't miss it. You just have to make more paperclips. Whatever number of paperclips you have made, you just have to make more paperclips.

WanderingEng  ·  465 days ago  ·  link  ·  

You must be further than me. I haven't had a proposal from drifters yet. I'm somewhere over 6 octillion clips.

It's a little dull right now. I'm hoping it will have some new projects once I convert a significant portion of known space into paper clips.
