Alas, in my foolishness I didn’t feel like doing every single one individually! Now I have Anarchy, Energy, Atheism, 1000 years and Black Sky active, and here’s my problem: I’m not sure it’s actually possible for me to get to space. An orbital launch costs 165K oil, 1.1M science, and the kicker, 55K catpower. I’m slowly raising the caps of all three, but my catpower limit is only 19.5K with 262 kittens and counting. 28 huts, 127 log houses, 79 mansions; huts and log houses are maxed until I build enough storage for the next couple. I think I need another 400-500 kittens to reach 55K. I’ve unlocked everything in science and the workshop that doesn’t require unobtainium or relics. Am I as screwed as I think I am? XD

How can I best salvage something from this ill-advised run?

550 still feels like a lot of paragon to me, which probably tells you what stage of the game I’m in! :)

Within a day of my no-challenge reset, I discovered that an orbital launch sans Black Sky only requires 5000 catpower - I assume the change was to compensate for lack of star charts. I’m still only up to 36K catpower with four Templar upgrades and a bunch of space stations, so I’ve concluded that Black Sky and Atheism are not compatible challenges at my current point in the game. I probably can’t complete Black Sky at all just yet.

I think for my next run I will repeat Winter Has Come, maybe pair it with Anarchy, and see how that goes.
