I'll say this one is... medium difficulty with a tough ending.

Building Experiment 20 is likely a must. I couldn't do it without that beast.

Sickle_Moon ... how? I was thinking omni rush to the progenitor, but I couldn't do it.

You could make the mine at the center to give at least 1 energy, because all guppies on Exp.20 flock to it and float around not collecting anything.

They should be collecting energy. All mines have access to all energy. Unless there's been an update.

Doesn't look like collecting to me.

Maybe it's due to a bug fix that V did in the beta? Shoot.... you can destroy it and not rebuild it and they'll (guppes) travel further...
Send me your save file?

I am not running any betas btw. I do recall reading something about guppies not interacting well with either 0 energy mines or mines with 0 coverage.
EDIT: Yep, it's no-range mines, since guppies refueled just fine from 0 energy mines at the end.

Okay, that's probably why. I'm running a beta. I'll test it this weekend.

Versioning aside, I took this at a lazy pace. Omnis are fun to use as the "heroes" for most of it.

Sorrontis, one port is irritating at the beginning. Also, the entire right-hand could be taken with the two capital ships and the lathe-craft. And I only brought in the non-power-supply supercapital to bother the opposing ships.

Also, the "gather forces from uncontested blueprints" is something to only do once - with initial Omnis, it might be possible to hold the right, making for an interesting strategic situation (as it's not possible to rush that Progenitor).

A narrative is a lightly-marked path to another reality.
