DragonFable IDs and More

I realized that it's been nearly a year since I updated the DragonFable ID page. I'll work on that over the weekend. Hopefully breathing new life into it will lead more people here so I can add their IDs.

Also, holycrap, do I have a lot of out-dated AQWorlds content. I'll have to archive it since I don't have any intention on updating it. I just got burned out on AQW and don't plan on playing any more. I'm keeping my main account, though, in case I change my mind.

Star Trek: Trexels Farming the Holodeck

As I mentioned in a previous post, it's possible to get a ton of Power and Research by farming the Epicrom AM. Each time you do the Away Mission, you get previous rewards added to your reward if you don't log out of the game.

Below is the net awards at certain rounds.Skill points are calculated as four characters receiving two points each for four skills (4*2*4). So at the end of round 20, one character will have +40 skill points for each skill.

RoundNet CommandNet ResearchNet PowerSkill Points

Each round takes about 3 minutes to finish (with practice). So a 20 round session takes an hour. While doing that, you can set up your workers to do nothing but get Command and also rotate other officers through the Academy. You should start maxing out your officers very soon.

In case you're curious, below are the net rewards after a couple hours of grinding:

Star Trek Trexels: The Holodeck

I almost quit playing Trexels until I discovered a few things that made the game fun again. First and foremost is the Holodeck. I discovered that by grinding the 003: Epicron AM I could quickly get over a million Research and Power, and a little Command to boot. To make up for the small amount of Command you get from that mission, I diverted all my little red shirted worker bees into getting me command. After a few hours, they come up with 100K or more.

On top of getting tons of Research, Power, and a little Command, I'm also earning +2 for all stats for the away team. Say I grind this AM five times: all four AT members just got a +10 boost to all their stats.While I'm doing that, I have other crew learning stuff at the Starfleet Academy. 

Now the game's fun again.

Star Trek Trexels: Getting tons of Command.

Games I'm Playing

SFTs Icon
Wow, it's been almost a year! Here's a quick rundown on what I'm playing:

Space Engineers: This game starts slow. It looked awesome watching other players go at it, but it's not so awesome when you're in a learning curve. I'm not quite sure yet if I've wasted the $25 on this game.

Minecraft FTB Lite: This mod was the only one that didn't slow my FPS to unplayable levels. It's a ton of fun, though. For the most part, I just wanted a little something beyond vanilla. Because this mod adds a ton of ores, it's sort of annoying.

Minecraft Vanilla: I love how the next update is shaping up! I'm playing the snapshots right now and it's a lot of fun. If they added scythes or sickles to this update I would probably never use a mod again!

Star Trek Trexels: This is an app that I've had for a while but stopped playing because it came to a grinding, miserable halt... because of the grinding. But I've discovered a couple things that really picked the pace up for me and made the game fun again. Mostly, it's the use of the Holodeck to over a million in resources. Also, upgrading to a Galaxy Class ship doubles rewards in the space garbage mini game, including those ever valuable dilithium crystals.

Bloons Tower Defense 5: Just when I think I'm going to give this game up forever, Ninja Kiwi updates it to make it interesting again. There's a new update I haven't tried yet. Something to do with Masteries Mode. Also, the Monkey Lab got updated. From what I understand, I need to get the bronze medal on all tracks to start the Masteries.

Here's what I'm doing right now: I'm getting all the apps I need to update this blog on the mobile. I travel a lot but never bothered to learn how to blog from my phone or iPad. Then we'll get into some game playing funness!

Live Streaming and Other Stuff

So deddi hooked me up with software to do some live streaming on Twitch. All I need now is a decent headset and I can start streaming again. I'm looking forward to it. The game I want to stream isn't being streamed by anyone else right now- the last time was 3 months ago.

Adsense on Mobile

I noticed that there are Google Adsense ads on my blog here when you view the site on a mobile device. I think I disabled it. To be clear, I didn't put it there. It was there by default.

Games I'm Playing

Right now I'm playing Minecraft on PC and mobile. To kill time I'm playing Tiny Tower, Star Trek Trexles, and Bloons Tower Defense 5 on mobile.

I'm also looking to get Stonehearth in a few weeks. It's a little pricey at $30 for an Alpha build but I've seen PSJ play it on YouTube (below) and it looks like a ton of fun.

Another quick update...

As I've written before, it's hard to update a blog about gaming when you'd rather just be playing the games. I'm playing Minecraft as much as I've ever done. I'm playing a few apps on my iPad. Everything else is about work and family and losing weight (I gained 15 pounds over the last few months). I've also done some sprucing up on my non-gamer pages, which migrated to a new domain. I'm thinking about posting some of my favorites here, especially my articles on surrogate boyfriend syndrom, to which gamers have a weakness.

So, for my "To Do" list:

Updated the DragonFable character ID list.
Post some screenies and whatnot about my new Minecraft LP world.
Post some reivews about a couple apps I've tried out (Tiny Tower and Tiny Dice).
