So far this remains unhacked but then again nobody's tried yet...

I'd be grateful for any thoughts people have about the setup. How they'd attemp to attack it and where I could make improvements.

Thanks in advance.

I've reconsidered and redesigned. Would still appreciate some feedback.

You could swap the compiler with a node with a lower level firewall. Next, you could force hackers though the two code gate, following with your high level scanner. And for choke points you could use the low level scanner and guardian.

For example: Evolver - code gate 1 - code gate 2 - guadian - scanner - the other stuff
(Code gate 2 - scanner high level) (Guadian - Turrent 1, Turrent 2, Black-ICE 1 - AV) (Scanner low level - Turrent 3, Black-Ice 2 - AV)

Yo, Nicodemus. You have a decent base there. You will be fine from most hackers. Btw, the 1 lv scanner is a very good choke point there, you should use it. Like... connecting 2 Turrets and 1 Black ICE to the scanner and having the guardian to backup them.

Don't lvl up multiple Sentry. It will make you weak. Just focus on one sentry you have. The highest lv sentry's anti-virus will take over the lower lv one. It will not stack. The higher lv sentry you have the more difficult your base will be. Not to mention on choke damage output (it's x3 damage plus everytime you upgrade the sentry).

Once you started to lvl up scanner, make it to 7 lv at Core 6. Then, place 2 Code gates together and the 7 lv scanner behind. It will stop Portal attack.

And here is the upgrades list you want too =P
=========================================
Nodes to unlock:

Core 1 = 1st Sentry, 1st Turret (max: 1 lv Sentry)
Core 2 = 2nd Sentry (max: 3 lv Sentry)
Core 3 = 2nd Turret, 1st Black ICE (max: 4 lv Sentry)
Core 4^^ = 1st Code gate, 1st Scanner choke point (max: 5 lv Sentry)
Core 5^^^ = 2nd Code gate, 2nd Scanner choke point, 3rd Turret, 3rd Sentry, 2nd Program library (You will need double Code gates and at least 8 lv scanner to stop Portaling later) (max: 6 lv Sentry)
Core 6 = 2nd Black ICE, 1st Guardian (max: 7 lv Sentry)
Core 7^^^ = 2nd Database, 2nd B-coin mixer choke point (8 lv Scanner unlocked) ($ Storage Boost) (max: 11 lv Sentry)
Core 8XXX = 2nd Guardian (poor Core 8.. T__T) (max: 13 lv Sentry)
Core 9^^^^ = 3rd Code gate, 4th Turret, 4th Sentry, 3rd Program Library, (3rd Sentry for just mentioning) (max: 16 lv Sentry)
Core 10^^^^^ = 3rd Scanner, B-coin mixer & Database chokes, 3rd Black ICE (Choke-point Core) (max: 18 lv Sentry)
Core 11^^^ = 4th Code gate, 3rd Guardian, 5th Turret (max: 20 lv Sentry)
Core 12^^ = 5th Code gate (max: 21 lv Sentry)
