you will get two more chances, for a total of three, at the x-prison

I think it's three for gravball?  The database is needed for higher studies I think, advanced medicine leads to something important, so I don't think it'd be locked out.

Pretty amusing exploit I found:

20 workers: +80 space, -100k/month, 300k/hire
1 contraband: -75 space, +480k/month

Money doubles faster than once a month, with virtually no limit (300 runts can process over 2 Billion dolaros worth of contraband per month)

Infinite money -> Infinite gems/hypno panels (from kidnapping espers)/vips -> infinite ghost suits, bio suits, integrated devices, tokens, coupon redemptions-> shadow orbs etc

Not going to use it since it's an obvious exploit, just found it funny.

Do you have the space to process 2 billion dolaros worth of contraband? Space is the main limiter here.

Right, that's the workers part.  You just keep hiring more workers :)  It gets out of control pretty quick since there's no limit to workers, and when you check out the stats, the maintenance and hiring for the 20 workers per contraband doesn't really cut into it much.  When you want to horde usable cash just buy gold bricks

Edit: ah, borked up the math a bit.  It is money multiplying, but not quite doubling per month, more like x130% per month or so.  The upper bound of 2 billion/month is right I think, but it would take a few months longer to get there.

OK, upgraded to L4/6.6.1 OXC version, and this time melee fights seems to be more harder than before! I really like new bootypedia inventory background and the base one too!

so finally i got a study room but i desperately hydra laser to get "laser wepaons construction" aside the "riot shield" to get "school graduation", "full plate mail", "advanced firearms", "industrial tools" and "smartrifle" >:( where do i get it, aside the !highway house! missions? Seems only stormrats have it. Also got another chance with the x-prison mission, don't know if it will be the last since at least 2/3 opportunities were missed. Do exist any "remedy" when fighting on the psichedelics terrains, where there are all that strange sounds?

Riot shield:  Very common on megapol.  Hydra laser: It's also one of the gun almanac items, so simply knock out research by researching the others on the list and save up almanacs until you can gaurantee it.

Psychedelic: win fast xD

Actually seems that damned shield is to be found in medium/large megapol vessels, not the samller one like the cars. Ive downed 4/5 of these but athe fell all into the sea!!!  >:( >:(

Psychedelic: win fast xD

Map on steroids :)

In the meantime by the end of aug 2602 i finally got "laser weapons construction" at the very end of sept  x-prison mission keeps spawning, let's see how far it will go...

It takes around 3 years of spamming this technique to get to maximum gain of circa 3bln per factory base per month... But yeah, it's been fixed now (doubled contraband disassembly time).

No, you have to research the stuff you found there.

Well i donnt know but...i failed again!!! Probably beause i did not accomplish the x-mission, or i rushed research a bit, infact i spent a whole month only in research, doin' only 1 or 2 missions, or even because i got two months a negative score, somebody might explain the real reason?

Edit: oh, there is a key in the interface where to look at previous month score? As far as i can tell there is no way...right?
