Redid base any tips?

Postby Simbo » Sat Jul 01, 2017 1:11 pm

I was copping hacks left right and centre so I gave rebuilding my base a shot, what could I improve?
I don't wanna be one of those people who puts their core right at the start, my reps low enough as it is :? :?

Bad news pal. I could hack you with my lvl 20 smurf. Your base is good but those upgraded mines and farms have inflated your levels.
Other than that you're wasting your core.
This is a set-up I used a while back: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8T_26 ... p=drivesdk
Also when your Sentry is high enough (lvl 14+) you can switch for this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8T_26 ... p=drivesdk
In case of second set-up remember to only link scanner to second gate! That screen was when I was still mostly a noob that's why it's linked to both gates.
Right now you just don't have any good choke. All you can do is though it out till you teach core 10. That's when you get another DB mixer and scanner that you can keep at lvl 1 and use as chokes.

Malicious hacking is called Cracking

You're going to need a well upgraded scanner to keep stealth attacks at bay, which means it will no longer be a great choke point. You've also connected together the defense nodes in that first choke, so an attacker only needs to capture one and can then use it to directly attack the other defense nodes (and potentially not bother protecting the scanner). Your Guardian "choke" is ineffective (4 program slots vs. 1 turret and 1 b ice?!). Your sentry to core "choke" is ineffective since attackers have 4 program slots and you're only retaliating with AV. Somebody only interested in your resources could ignore your Core entirely. Your upgraded gates can be easily defeated with Wraiths, so don't upgrade them much more until you have more gates to sacrifice at the front of your network.

You should use your farms, mines and core to reinforce your defenses and make it as hard as possible to reach your databases and mixer. I repeat: do not try to protect your mines, farms, or core. Collect the resources from your mines every hour if you feel like it, but otherwise treat upgraded mines/farms like high-firewall nodes for stall and AV. I'd think about using a Maelstrom design. Focus on upgrading your core for more defense nodes and your programs to more easily hack people.
