Hello! I got into the game a couple weeks ago when an online friend recommended it as a distraction as I pulled an all-nighter following a break-in attempt just in case they tried again. (Long story.) I love it! Thank you bloodrizer for making such an intricate game. I’ve been checking the wiki for some things and letting myself be surprised by others.
Here are my questions:
Long-ish term, would it be better to go with Knowledge Sharing or Cultural Exchange for my first run? I’m guessing Cultural Exchange since you can always reassign kittens to be scholars to increase the science rate, but it’s hard imagine worrying about my culture rate since it’s at +37.88/sec right now and it doesn’t seem to be used for as many things compared to science.
Carnivale or Extravagance? And more specifically: why does kitten arrival speed matter? Carnivale boosts arrival speed, but that doesn’t seem worth the cost of increasing luxury consumption so I was just going to go with Extravagance.
For Zebra Relations, does Appeasement or Bellicosity make for a smoother first run? I was going to go with Bellicosity since I’m almost to the point where I can manufacture titanium instead of having to trade for it.
Policy selections up until this point: Liberty, Republic, Diplomacy, Epicurianism, Mysticism, and Environmentalism.
