I'm at 64 boosts, 66 badges. I get some 1.8 M castles every ONG, and now and again I buy a new river, bag, flag or bot. The thing is that I don't know when any new boost will be unlocked, and the few I know are a long time away.
Even looking into the code I can't find clues about how to go on. I mean, I find things like a boost some waves away, but it will take a lot to reach that number of waves, and it doesn't look like it will change things much.
I do have some boosts available. For example, "Fractal Sandcastles". It's just that if I wanted to buy it I would have to wait 285 dips!
What am I missing? Should I molpy down and get Time Travel? Some other thing?
It is essential to have molpied down once to get everything. Originally I didn't want to, but it will be quicker the second time. You keep your badges but lose the boosts.
Have you provoked the Judgement Dip from the nbps yet? At some point when you have a good enough production of castles (you may be a little low) it is worth provoking the dip and then weathering the storm - it is worth it there are juicy boosts to be obtained. You need a good supply of castles and sand but not too many bags as they slow the dip (particularly if you have bag burning - which I would recommend anyway). Once you are through it shouldn't rouble you again.
If you have been through the dip have you started glass chip/block production - this takes quite a while to build up to be useful. You will eventually need really large numbers of sand to satisfy your castle needs and the glass industries.
When building up your tools - consider what gets the most castles per ong per castles spent. The optimal tool will change over time depending on your boosts and things, likewise what is going to get you the most sand. For me now it is buckets and clicks that get the sand nothing else has much affect.
Most boosts are worth having eventually, but not necessarily as soon as you can afford them. The only useless ones as far as I am aware are 'NewPix Navigation Code', 'Castle Crusher', 'Shopping Assistant', 'Summon Knights Temporal'. Some others have only a minimal affect - but do sometimes unlock other more useful boosts.
I am now at 111 boosts and 105 badges - the hardest badge to get is the Battlestation (by a very very long way).
