Re: What do you like and dislike about Hackers?

when you connect to another network you get a snapshot of it in it's current state with no timer that you can view it as long as you want Just a follow up to the previous. :) The 30 second timer exists as the result of a design choice, specifically, "less buttons / minimal input to launch an a...

Re: What do you like and dislike about Hackers?

While I can certainly see a proposed difference between a snapshot and a connection, the method of can view it as long as you want, then you can click the disconnect button and use of the word "disconnect", implies that the original state is a "connected" one. All that aside, tha...

If it's not possible to have both requirements show for whatever reason, then Required Level to be shown first - Understood!

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

What I think I hear you saying, which I did not find in the wiki, is that once a node is captured, it has a full firewall again working for the attacker that has to be overcome by the defending security nodes using the DPS stat, correct? (Or maybe the way to look at it, instead of DPS by the securi...

Re: I overleveled with farms and mines, HALP

So I kind of feel stuck with these lv 20+ farms and mines. Due to my hectic schedule, they do bring in marginally more income than my hacking (about 60:40) ... Having a hectic schedule is certainly a dampener to progress, but having resource generators instead of "active defences" is stil...

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Despite the Wiki being pretty vague and unclear about certain things (even just defining terminology) A-ya, right in the feels! We've tried to keep the terms used on the wiki to be the same as the terms used in-game, to help transition between the two. Stats that are displayed as "strength&quo...

Re: Virtual IP Tracing

This is not yet in the game. If added then this will give it much more awesome gameplay and experience. I suggest to the game makers to add a Virtual IP tracing, where players are given unique IP and they can trace each other through that. In real hacking this is basically what they use to trace so...
