also anybody reading dis plez help progress the story boiz

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 I'll have to set up a GigachadNews variable so that you can get the story in sequential order.

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ty

wait maybe incorporate the GigaChadNews variable into the story? like, gigachad is trying to undermine your business and all you can do is try to make your place better (maybe like you get warnings from the news about Gigachad every time you get a new building?), kind of like the Grandmatriarchs in the original Cookie Clicker (but after you finally unlock everything required), of which you get warnings when you start unlocking stuff related to them (the first warning shows up sometimes after you get a grandma, it's (I think)"Foolish child. It does not know." or something like that). I suppose maybe that would mean that when you purchase your first mouse then it gives you the gigachad escaping prison headline?

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 Interesting.
I'll consider it. But the Headlines are pretty much just supposed to be cosmetic. I made a Lucky Numbers headline, but the lucky numbers don't do anything.
I may or may not use your suggestion.

What's the News:
[Are you even reading these?]

AstrumDeorum (163)

@AidenWebster It's so brilliant I didn't even think of it

AidenWebster (2)

The best way to get cookies is to spam the news headlines

AstrumDeorum (163)

@AidenWebster Yup. because the lucky headline increments by percentage.
If you have 0 cookies and you get a Lucky Headline, if you get 60-100 on it, it becomes really easy to get up from there.

noway15 (97)

wow I found some references to the song "All Star". Nice touch, btw.
Also I found the Exploding Kittens reference and also the one about Rick Astley. Wow, there are a lot of musical references now.

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 There are 5 (maybe 6) All Star references, and 2 Never Gonna Give You Up references

noway15 (97)

love the Karen reference

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 I try to make the Headlines enjoyable

noway15 (97)

lol I like the Mario reference

there are a LOT of current Replit situations in your headers

I liked the apple-snake feud thing, and also the CodingCactus reference
AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15
1. Indeed, it's one of the better game references
2. Part of what I want to do with the News Ticker is indirectly approach certain situations, but done in a way that you can't totally say that I'm talking about it
3. Glad you like 'em, they were like just added

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum hmm

also can you explain the parts of the code that have to do with the building CPS and stuff and storage of the cookies that you have to me please because I can't really understand it fully
its for a project

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 Not Easily. A lot of stuff that has to do with the buildings isn't my code. Storage of the cookies is just done by variable updating. I'm not particularly good at explaining code

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum o-o maybe try your best to explain just the clicking part then

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 When you click the cookie, the cookie calls a js function, this js function increases the cookies variable by 1

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ok
how does the clicking itself work?

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 Look at Line 499, that's the big cookie. all it is is a onclick="clickCookie()" property.

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ok but where does "clickCookie()" show up?

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ok where are 'click' and cookieCount?

also where did the

thing come from?

Whippingdot (716)

😴😴😴 tis pog but it take too long so...

GUD JUB

AstrumDeorum (163)

@Whippingdot What takes too long?
The Ticker has a 10 second delay, just like the real thing

Whippingdot (716)

i know but this game will take a LONG time to play so... @AstrumDeorum

AstrumDeorum (163)

@Whippingdot Even the real one is a commitment.

AstrumDeorum (163)

@Whippingdot btw you have a headline referencing you as was requested.
New Whipping Cream Made Out Of Dots!

Whippingdot (716)

well, the whipping in Whippingdot means the dance 'whip' and in total it means I am a dot who is whipping but I guess that works too (change it if you can but I am being greedy lul. I should be happy with what I got). Thanks!!! What does your name mean in case I want to put it somewhere in a website I make... (name meaning username) @AstrumDeorum

AstrumDeorum (163)

@Whippingdot Astrum Deorum is Latin for Star of the Gods, the name is derived from the boss Astrum Deus from the Calamity mod for Terraria.

BD103 (139)

I can't believe I just spent 20 minutes reading through all the headlines. This is amazing! :D

AstrumDeorum (163)

@BD103 I cant believe you were lucky enough to see all them

BD103 (139)

Oh, I didn't lol. I just looked through the source code. :P @AstrumDeorum

AstrumDeorum (163)

@BD103 Ah, do you have a favorite headline or one you thought was really funny?
Are there any you want me to explain?

BD103 (139)

I really like Fun Fact: Most Sharks Have Never Been to McDonald's! and Breaking News: Shots Fired At A Small Female Child, Bullets Apparently Went Through Victim, Claims "I Have A Very Small Hitbox"! XD
@AstrumDeorum

AstrumDeorum (163)

@BD103 The Former One is a meme I found, the second one is a reference to Touhou, one of the playable characters in every game has a smaller hitbox than the other choices, leading to what I like to call "hitbox moments" where a bullet that should kill me doesn't, because it didn't hit.

AstrumDeorum (163)

@BD103 lol, I've been wanting to explain some of these but it's just never come up

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum maybe add a little animation when you click the cookie?

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 It does. But if you're clicking really quickly, it doesn't keep up very well.

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ah ok

also maybe put in the grandmas enslaved by cookie mogul thing after the player buys grandmas.

AstrumDeorum (163)

@noway15 Working on it, the quantities are stored on separate files, so it's a little bit of a hassle.

Awesome!! Looking really cool!

CHRISTIANMATTHY (5)

hey this is KURATOR/cjmatthy09's school alt. can you add me

StringentDev (240)

why just why?

Also @CodingCactus this headline is REALLY subtle isnt it?

AstrumDeorum (163)

@StringentDev He had nothing to do with that headline, that was all me.

AstrumDeorum (163)

@StringentDev Also, the 1000 version is an upgrade.

StringentDev (240)

@AstrumDeorum ik that's not what I'm implying. I'm saying you were referencing him

alpha2442 (2)

grandmas are the cheapest, so spam click to get your automatic cookie system up and going using around 20 or so clickers, and then spamming the left click until you can can get enough grandmas to become autonomous

savageking65200 (3)

cool, but is there any way to turn down the price scaling? its a bit much

AstrumDeorum (163)

@savageking65200 The price scaling is currently incorrect, there's no fix that I can see at the moment, I'll put out a patch that temporarily will reduce pice scaling until we can fix it.

MikeJMS8910 (234)

When you do an upgrade it doesn't upgrade the pre-exciting ones just the ones that you buy after it

AstrumDeorum (163)

@MikeJMS8910 Interesting.
We're looking into the issues with the new building and upgrade formats.
