[QUOTE=Ndemic Creations;2922165]Congrats on the CDC one Kayg0000!



Hmm - would people prefer that achievements can't be got with the cheat plagues?

Maybe not everyone but it would mean that each new achievement release had a bit "longer legs" and lasted more than a few days - assuming of course that all the achievements are possible in casual mode of the non cheat diseases.

Maybe have the achievements be solvable in the cheat disease, but only have the achievement "earned" with the non - cheat diseases.

Either way people would figure them out pretty damn fast. So maybe we should have some harder achievemets in the future.

So of them are quite hard to get on normal disease mode. For example.. The cdc achievement. I've managed to get the forst cdc message and the cure was at 90+%. There was no way to stop it. Gen reshuffle all the way didn't matter much.. Paralysis and coma add lethality which prevents the player from getting the next message...

Like i said.. Some are meant to be achieved on the Cheat Type.

It's up to James of course but i wouldn't change that.

Maybe rebalance them so they can be achieved on normal plague,sure,why not?

I'd prefer acheivements that are more of a challenge and less of a discover the secret path. Kill everyone in a year was a good one.

Default Speed run strategy

My scores. For leaderboard see post 3144.

Bacteria - 215
Virus - 214
Fungus - 206
Parasite - 246
Prion - 264
Nano Virus- 171
Bio Weapon - 214
Worm - 160
Necroa - 272

Starting Strategy for

Bac ,virus, parasite, prion, nano, bio
China @ Boost, native, sympto, Darwin, urbo

1. Rat1, cough, sneeze, pneu
Rash, sweat, lesions
Cyst, absces, hypersens
2. Drug2, water2, bird2, necrosis, air2
3. Go more Lethal and evolve climate abilities
4. More symptoms and transmissions

For prion go lethal more sooner
For parasite use less transmissions #2

Necroa
China @ boost, Suppresion, Splice, Darwin, urbo

1. Zoo, rat 2, bird 1, drug 2, bird 2
2. insomnia to anabolic boost, + lumbrical hypertrophy and peptide surge
3. Max the horde abilities then send millions to infect resistant countries (pause game to stop the clock when sending hordes, spam countries daily)
4. Evolve to Naja mortis/autothysis (optional)

Fungus
China @ boost, Tera, patho, Darwin, extreme
Get speed run pop up before evolving. Allow all mutations except for organ failure.

1. rash, sweat, ALL spores, rat 2
2. lesions, nausea, vomit, diarrhoea
3. drug 1, bird 2, livestock 2, zoonosis
4. drug 2, cold 2, heat 2
5. (wait for all islands optional) Heavy lethal starting with organ failure, then necrosis, dysentery, hemorrhage, etc.

Worm
China @ boost, Native, Trans-stasis, Mimic, urbo

1. Eggs 2, rat 2, water 3, air 3, bird 2, mosquito 2
2. drug 2, enviro hard
3. Neural breach to enslave (left side route)
note: order of trojan planes: west africa, argentina, then island of choices.

For parasite use less transmissions in #2

My base strategy for speed is to always infect UK quickly because thats the key to fast spreading disease.
As always tweak for best results but 1 and 2 should provide good start.
holy cow that is good. I am just glad that the speed runs are on hard so you can't use the the whole get instant unlimited dna on the nano-virus. (on normal or easy to just get symto-stasis and evolve and devolve insomnia and paranoia over and over). Also while we are on the topic of the space mission thing, I like it how they can (or at least could) just barely cure the immune plague when they did the mission. It gave me hope. Also the fact that bill gates saved the world makes me think microsoft would take over the world at that point, just like apple would take over the world if icure was what saved it. Those would be fun achievements.....(or painful depending on the parameters) now my scores, for single casual runs on each using a china rats startegy

Bacteria - 383
Virus - 334
Fungus - 504
Parasite - 464
Prion - 458
Nano Virus- 380
Bio Weapon - 411
Worm - 308
Necroa - 497



yeah i need practice. My goal is to get everything to under a year

[QUOTE=Botoshel;2922369] So of them are quite hard to get on normal disease mode. For example.. The cdc achievement. I've managed to get the forst cdc message and the cure was at 90+%. There was no way to stop it. Gen reshuffle all the way didn't matter much.. Paralysis and coma add lethality which prevents the player from getting the next.

I've managed to get the first two CDC pop up's a number of times on bacteria casual, but haven't figured out how to combine the right lethal symptoms yet to get the final achievement message before everyone is dead.

The method that works for me is to delay evolving the first re shuffle until the cure hits around 90+%, then wait until the cure recovers to a similar level before evolving the second re shuffle, and the same with the 3rd.

Also tried to go for the insanity and devolving the lethal symptom immediately on that branch, and going up the paralysis, coma route to buy some extra cure.

It's clearly a difficult achievement on normal disease casual, but dead simple on the cheat.

Haven't tried out similar strategies on the other disease types, but there's probably a method there for all of them.

Edit: Just tried on virus, had to evolve all 3 reshuffles before I got the first Icure pop up and CDC pop up,but cure went to 100% before the 2nd pop up. I've never had the first CDC pop up at less than 65% cure but nearly always get it before 100% (sometimes after a reshuffle or two) but have never had the final pop up before the cure hits 100%.

I reckon that the timing of the three CDC pop ups are totally random after some in game trigger point - say cure > 50% (my guess, nothing else), so simple perseverance and pure chance seems to be the key here.

Maybe James might enlighten us to a degree without giving away all his trade secrets?

Default Speed run or not

Bacteria - 236 (getting close)
Virus - 240 (needs work)
Fungus - (to embarrassed to admit, needs major work)
Parasite - 287 (-1)
Prion - 281 (-11)
Nano Virus - (not set, I did 131 in beta testing when DNA farming was possible, this does not count)
Bio Weapon - 221 (+7)
Worm - 170 (+1)
Necroa - yet to try

How do you plan/try to infect the UK when starting in China?

Also you didn't post your fungus strategy? I need major help with that one.

Great times! The only one I am not in the ballpark on is necroa. Can't beak 475. Any specific tips....? Thanks!
