Can I just say that you're crazy!
Some of the voices in my head agree with you.
How in the world do you maintain interest and sanity when faced with so much?
Actually, it goes beyond a simple game when it gets to this extreme. It's seeing how far you can take something on a technical level. Kind of like taking your wife's favorite blender apart to get an idea of how it works. I can't see doing it too often.
What the heck does 7 million look like?
Pretty much like the picture I posted. Here's another from the failed game at 8.5 million. It was a shame to have to abandon it.
How many planets do you have? How long have you been playing this one game?
I don't remember exactly how many planets I have, but it's somewhere around 470. I've been playing this one game since February or March, but not spending a lot of time per day. I've had other priorities going.
