I got my time down to below 5 hours.

An interesting glitch (?) is that if you have ~$17 at the beginning of the game with no clips in your inventory, the "Beg for More Wire" button will appear if the cost of wire is more than$17. But since the price of wire fluctuates, it can dip below $17 again, allowing you to buy wire and progress without needing to beg for it. After converting the entire universe into paperclips and dismantling your factories, the "Beg for More Wire" button will still be there, and clicking on it will say "Budget overage approved" (!). You'll then get over 170,000 inches of extra wire, but you cannot convert more than 100 inches of it into paperclips. The number of inches will still continue to decrease, but the display will never show more than 30,000,000,000,....,000 paperclips.

I am not rushing because I want to study it.

Way too much time for not accomplishing much.$2 billion and can't seem to use it for anything much.

edit: Looking at it now, I see it didn't really reset, I just lost the all types of Auto Cutters. Is that supposed to happen?

You are only part way to the end of the game. There is still the space part of the game.

Basically I can only watch it accumulate OPs and creativity and play for yomi. So that is correct? Did I miss a message? edit: Ah yes, now there's solar farms and the option to generate wire from cosmic dust. Last fiddled with by bur on 2023-03-17 at 07:09
