Head below surface and face what the Elder Race of Man liked to call..."Color". This somehow stimulated their 'senses'. Our world has no need of it! Neon must die!!

Get the beacon and find yourself as many free blasters as possible.  Anti-creeper will be helpful.

Looks like not too many people enjoying this one.   It's not as tricky as it looks.  Once you figure out the step by step starting points  then you got a fun hard fight ahead of you.  I will put some spoilers if anyone wishes.

*There is no micro-rift tech, so you cannot afford to have any rifts destroyed*  *with ONE exception*

STEP 1

A. Pause game
B. Head down the map, enable as many Micro-Rifts as you like.
C. Activate as many Reactors as you can.
D. At the bottom, activate both Anti-Creeper Vacuums.
E. A little bit down the map from your Ship is the Maker Tech.  Click the terrain and be ready to quickly get it as soon as you un-pause.
F. Unpause Game - Get Maker Tech - Pause Game.
G. Start building Anti-Creeper Makers.  2 at a time, for now.  Set them to "Charge"

STEP 2  ~6 Free Blasters~

A. A little further down from your Ship are 2 square rooms, with the Repulsor Tech and the Tech Dome Tech, and 3 free Blasters each.  The space just below the micro-rifts is the only safe place to dig there for now- lower your Ship and put a Maker in each one and set to "Produce".  Un-pause the game.
B. Using "R" button to see the hidden creeper, gradually overpower a pathway to the Blasters in the corner.  Add Makers as needed and grab all the Blasters.

STEP 3  ~Get the Beacon Tech~

A.  Use "R" button again.  There is only 1 safe place to start to dig from the rift.  Then dig to the left, and clear terrain.  Use your Makers here again, and carefully set up your limited Blasters, then dig toward the gateway.  Be patient, subdue the creeper and drones without losing any Blasters, and grab the Beacon Tech.
B. Pause the game, and set Beacons wherever you like.  Gather as many more free Blasters as you can, then head back to grab the Reactor Tech.

STEP 4  ~Where Do You Want to Go Next~

A.  The top left and right columns are an easy beat once you get the Launcher Tech.  Lots of room for Reactors and stuff.
B.  The Nullifier Tech will solve your ongoing battle at the bottom of the map.  You must somehow get this Tech without losing any Blasters.
C. The Launcher Tech also needs to be gotten without losing any Blasters.  Getting this before the Nullifier Tech will make it easier to clear the Nullifier Tech room. 
D.  The Repulsor and Tech Dome Techs will come in handy, and might be the easiest next step since you already know how to get to them.
E.  When you feel strong enough, go get the Blaster Tech.

Anyone who progresses through this map will see each room conquered will need to be packed full up with reactors and weapons in order to beat the game.  It ends up looking like a massive weapons storage facility and can be a work of art :)  If anyone wants to post a screenshot of later in the game that would be awesome.

I can't save the micro rift just below the maker. It is destroyed almost immediately.

Any suggestions ?

Once you get the Creeper Maker Tech, you have no further use for that Micro Rift ;)
I put 2 Conversion Bombs there just for fun...at some point in the game you can use them to change the creeper color.

My apologies to Fantomas and anyone that was confused with the idea of losing the micro rift under the Maker, since I had stated that you couldn't afford to lose any micro rifts. My bad!
