I've been stopped off in the Progressive Era for awhile, now.

One of the first new things I ran into in the Progressive Era was 2 lane streets. They're needed for some of the new structures. I don't even want to give up the space on my 'gridpaper' to make 1 lane streets. Another, was, too much of a shortage of production goods to progress without being bottlenecked while waiting for goods.

So, I decided to stop Era progression for the first time since I started playing and stock up on goods before entering the next Era.

Well, what to do with the Forge Points that start stacking up in the meanwhile... Can't waste those and the ones that come every hour only stack up to a quantity of 10.. So, why not finally put up a Great Building. Been collecting blueprints for them ever since starting the game. Why not finally use a few.

Once a Great Building goes up I have a place to sink my Forge Points while building up supplies and other resources for the next Era.

The 1,000's of Forge points that go into these buildings will raise their effects. For example a Great Building that gives 3% attack/defense bonus goes up to 6% on the next level, then 9%, and etc. The bonus goes up fast at first and then it takes increasingly more Forge Points to level up a Great Building.

Great Buildings only go up to level 10 by default (which takes 1,000s of Forge Points) but I've seem them well over level 100. For each level beyond level 10 a Great Building requires a full set of blueprints. To build a Great Building at all, I have to have a full set of blueprints. In the course of getting to the Progressive Era and doing things that gain me blueprints (buffing neighbors, doing quests..) I already had stacks of blueprints to put to use.

By donating my precious Forge Points to other people's Great Buildings while using some basic math skills.... I get the chance to get even more back than I gave... that go into Inventory (a seemingly infinity pool so far).. instead of the puny 10-limit pool where my hourly Forge Points go. This is what incentivizes everyone to help everyone and it's pretty effective. It also gives me a way to stockpile Forge Points in inventory to go along with the other resources I need to progress through the next Era.

By playing the Great Building mini-game while I produce and trade for the goods I need to progress through the next Era I should be able to complete the entire next Era minutes after I start it - instead of weeks or months.

Then, I upgrade my entire city with the latest Era structures while also going back to the Great Building mini-game to stock up for the next Era.

Rinse. Repeat.

No bottlenecks during Era progression. No waiting (weeks or months) to discover new technology while fighting against new tech with the old tech from the last era, and, I can produce goods and cash with the latest tech right away as I stockpile up for the next Era. I'm never broke (seems to be the opposite) and I'm always at my peak or waiting for the latest buildings of my Era to complete.

Urg.  There were things I liked about this series, but it overused the skip-past-large-sections-of-action gimmick.  Usually rendering scenes either confusing or anti-climatic.  And it ended rather lamely.

Wow 4 months and I still play this daily.. Usually just enough to keep things rolling, but still. I didn't think a 'simple little browser game' would still be on my Favorites bar after a month or two at most but I'm still not MMO'ing regularly and Forge is still more entertaining than Windows solitaire.

Forge just got done with their 10th anniversary event. There's another event in 2 weeks, which, seems about average. They have a lot of Events and Events bring special and rare structures to use. The buildings give DR as you progress through the ages but many are well above average when you get them, and, they cannn be updated to the current Age you're in if you have a rare building upgrade consumable you're willing to use to do so.

The first new expansion to come out since I started playing is out (Jupiter Moon). I'm probably a good year or so away from getting far enough to see it which is fine by me. Not in any kind of hurry to progress and I can't help but progress if I keep things rolling along, so, I'll get there eventually if I keep playing.

I'd still recommend this one and I don't look down my nose on it like I did when I first started playing it as a quant little browser game/solitaire alternative that newbs who haven't yet discovered real games play. Still can't see myself calling Forge home, but, I can see how someone could and it's been a solid game to play on the side.

Comics and Other Media / Re: SPACE FORCE
« Last post by Xev on April 22, 2022, 01:48:07 AM »
So, for the second time since I started watching the news again (I've nearly had my fill again), Space Force was briefly mentioned. This time they excluded video of the dudes working in someone's basement on sub-par video game machines. They didn't show much of anything at all except some people in uniform lined up for a picture.

Even the Netflix uniforms seemed equal to or better than the real thing.

Cool info, eabrace! And yeah no "Cadets", is, a letdown. So far, the real Space Force, in general, is kinda a letdown. I wanna see rooms filled with eggheads carrying clipboards and huge screens with crazy tech and maybe lasers and mind blowing suits (with lasers??). At least something cooler than Netflix's version of Space Force or even a good National Guard base.
