Save games used to persist across winning, but this was disabled to prevent people getting the Modified Genitic Codes too easily. ( save before winning, win, get gene, reload, repeat for all 25 genes)

I would like to see it return once you have all 25 genes, at that point there is no reason to keep it disabled.

I have been trying to determine if heat + cold resistance is better or worse than bacterial resistance. To do this I need to have the same conditions which is most easily achieved by being able to reload a save game after being successful. Also been trying to work out the relationship of days to victory on the score. I know score is based on cure % complete, the lower the better. I want to know if a lower number of days to vitory helps score.

Trouble in space!

I keep having trouble on this last achievement, i've been waiting since 2015 (when mission was planned - I devolved ALL symptoms just to be safe - no abilities, though I do have bioaerosol and water + air) and now its 2024 and still no go on the mission!

Huh.. Never mind. Tried again and had the same problem, but as soon as I evolved Paranoia, Insomnia, and (just to be safe) Insanity, the mission launched!

A Nuking Good Time, and Contaminated Package Strategy

Did the following to nuke Russia, and it worked like a charm: (Casual, Immune Plague, Begin in Russia)Evolve Drug 1, 2, Livestock 1, 2, Coughing, as points allow. Devolve any other symptoms. Wait for virus to transmit (Want about 80-90 DNA)
27/7/2013: Evolved Water 1 to combat ship sterilization proceedures (so I could make sure to get Greenland).
Evolve swine flu combo, insomnia, paranoia, inflamation, seizures.4/8/2016: President taken ill. Evolve insanity.
2/8/2017: SPalin elected. Immediately develop cold 1 and 218/8/2017: USA Threatens Russia. President Spalin believes Russia deliberately released Nuke/em7 as a weapon and swears to take revenge. Evolve paralysis.
4/9/2017: USA nukes Russia. President SPalin has nuked Russia in revenge for Nuke/em7. Generals Paralysed and unable to stop it from happening.
Out of curiosity, wanted to see if I could get China too. So upon nuking Russia, I evolved Bird 1 and 2, devolved Cold 1 and 2, devolved paralysis. Waited 1 year for results. No results after 1 year, so I assume you can only nuke 1 country per game. Then I killed the world! Mwahahaha
I plan to repeat with Bird 1/2 to get China.

My theory as to why these specific triggers are used for nukes: previous real-life diseases coming from these countries. Russia has had H1N1 epidemics (swine flu, explains needing livestock transmission), plus the adaptation for cold weather, plus insanity, points to Russia as a source. For China, both Bird Flu and SARS have spread from diseased chickens (which are both livestock and birds); add insanity and SPalin and instant finger pointing!

For the blood transfusion achievement, I wasn't even trying for it, but I did note what I had done, in case it helps anyone. It was on my third uneducated nuke attempt.
Brutal, God Mode, Begin in Russia
Transmission: Air 1, Air 2, Water 1, Water 2, Extreme Bioaerosol, Insect 1, Insect 2, Blood 1, Blood 2, Extreme Hematophagy
Symptoms: None
Abilities: Cold 1, Cold 2, Heat 1, Heat 2, Environmental Hardening, Drug 1, Drug 2, Reasearch 1 Reasearch 2
Notes: Developed all transmission and abilities above immediately upon beginning game.
As i was popping biohazard bubbles, the following popped up:
Contaminated Blood in S.E Asia - Nuke'em3 was in contaminated blood shipped to S.E. Asia. The infection is now there!

Hope this helps someone. I've just wasted a day and a half learning how to nuke. Now I'm off to infect space! Mwahahaha!

BTW, Ndemic Creations, here's an idea: if you infect the space station AND manage to keep the human race around until the asteroid in 4042, why not give a special achievement for infecting an alien race or something? That would be hilarious! A real Space Plague!

What is it about this game that turns us all into murdering psychopaths? Not that I'm complaining, just curious.

Plague in Space does not involve the space station. Some spoilers follow, use none, 1 or all as you see fit.

Where to start: USA
Transmissions: Air 1+2, Water 1+2, Extreme Bio
Symptoms: Low lethal (e.g. swine flu), get noticed, wait.

Eventually you will get mission planned pop-up. Devolve symptoms, except insomnia paranoia and insanity, wait for mission launched pop up, add minor lethal, wait for mission failure pop up.

For every achievement see attached guide.

Nuke/Peer Pressure/Space Achievements

I feel depressed playing on Android. Followed the guides for the above achievements on Casual Immune mode and played for 22 years without even getting the pop-ups. By then, the while world was infected and starting to die and the POTUS
wasnt sick yet...

Nuke/Space (will work on Peer, as I do that in Worm which isn't available on Android yet)

Casual, Immunity cheat. Start in USA, evolve drug 1, air 1, water 1, drug 2, air 2, water 2, extreme bio, cold 1 and heat 1 (these last two missing from guide, not sure if required). See attachments space trans and space abilities. Once you have all that evolve symptoms as per attachment space symptoms.

Now wait a long time (3 years ish). You may get the Icure pop-up, if you do sweating takes care of that. Not sure if Icure failure is a milestone for space.

By starting in the USA with Drug 2, one of two things will happen. It is possible to do both in same game, once POTUS is sick the lethal symptoms are no longer required, if you happen to have space mission planned by then

1) POTUS sick (Drug 2 is mandatory for this, can start in other countries)
1.1) Evolve insanity, I devolve seizures but that is optional.
1.2) Spalin voted in, evolve cold 2 for nuke russia or bird 2 for nuke china
1.3) Spalin threatens, add paralysis, some devolve insanity
1.4) USA Nukes country as per 1.2

2) Space mission Planned (Must start in the USA)
2.1) Devolve all lethal symptoms, others can be kept.
2.2) wait (no more than 1 year) space mission launched
2.3) evolve minor lethal, I added diarrhoea and pulmanory fibrosis
2.3) wait (about 1 year) space mission failure

Are there any other Android players of plague who have done nuke/space/peer who can advise. I only have an IPad so can't test on Android
