Desc:
You'll have a rather easy start, but as the emitters increase slightly during the first 15 minutes you won't be able to just sit and wait. Can be played laid back though. Have some prehistoric fun!

Title:
Nice Job 19: The Paleontologist
Difficulty:
Hard
Creeper type:
Land only
Remarks:
You'll have a rather easy start, but as the emitters increase slightly during the first 15 minutes you won't be able to just sit and wait. Can be played laid back though. Have some prehistoric fun!

Description:
For weeks you have been escavating the fossile remains of 5 prehistoric animals.

As an experienced paleontologist you realize how lucky you are to find so many different species at one site.

Finally you and your team are finished and all creatures seem to be perfectly intact:

- a Tyrannosaurus Rex
- a Pterodactylus
- a Stegosaurus
- an Apatosaurus (also known as Brontosaurus)
- a Trilobite

At the moment you take your camera to make some pictures, the animals turn out to be less fossilized than you expected....

'can be played laid back' yeah after i got 2-3 blasters and 2 mortars up and running, then filling up most of the space i had with reactors.  I lost a lot of time trying to advance too soon, and even more time trying to cap one of the emitters before i realized it can't be done

Hahaha! ;D Like I said you can't just sit and wait, but you won't get into real trouble during the first minutes when you just build collectors and a few reactors.

After that you can just add 1 mortar and 1 blaster and keep building reactors without getting a deficit.

Wow. Another fun map that constantly tests my skills at this game. I must have started it five times before I got my plan down, and even then, you beat me by 4 minutes (game time)! :'( But I loved the challenge of the map ;D. Keep it up!

Thanks! :)

I overbuilt a little (up to 23-24 energy and because that was too much I built >20 speed nodes), so 16 minutes should be possible.

~17 energy packet per second should be ok ;-)

Great time Alwego! :) Nice to see you back here and even better to see that you're still as good as you were a couple of months ago!

Thanks for the tip, I'll take that into account during my next attempt.

Yeah, I guessed you would like that. ;) Indeed pretty tough scores. I will have to think of something new to beat Alwego....  8)

Anyone feeling generous enough to offer a couple more hints?
I've read through all of the comments, tried a variety of locations for the city, blasters & mortars, reactors & collectors - all with the same (dead) result.
Thanks.

Glad I'm not the only one looking for help.
Thank you for the hints - I was able to survive all the way through (but would love to see a video of one of you speed demons cranking through it).

Excellent fun.
