Because Bliss affects how much Military you have to pay out (or resources you lose) when the Whacks come. It's easy enough to add Bliss from gifts or just buying things, most of the time, so IMHO it's better to keep the Bliss low and add/surge only when you need it, otherwise you'll end up needing more of everything else to compensate.

Your are a willing prey

Because you get the most out of the gifts when for others it is only a drip on a hot stone, and they get nothing out of it.

Don't underestimate bliss!
When it starts dropping it does extremely. And later on you don't have anymore stuff to buy. So no bliss en passant. Blissloss kills your money from assets output
Due to that I lacked the 200k to upgrade to 14 this cycle.
When your pop has grown watch your food too since there is afair a 2% growth per cycle too.

I'm curious about people's ideas on how many city cores should be included on the asset grid.

I have 4. Three are antimatter reactor towns and the fourth is the original factory farm town.

I have 2, the original and an anti-matter reactor. Most of my quick surges are thorium reactors plus a food and a population generator. My biggest problem with the cores is that it seems rather expensive to upgrade them. What do you put in the 3 squares needed to upgrade a core so it doesn't cost much to buy and upgrade? Do you have any cores in the quick surge area?

It costs a lot to upgrade. Shrug. You put resources you want to get rid of--the low-level things that don't improve much when they become high-level, or the drop packages you can't otherwise get rid of. It's more relevant that you place pop & bliss around them at other times, so that they don't produce as much of those and instead give you the other resources.

In the moment you can't put them in the quick surge. I had four core, I did sell three, did have only the first one, and did buy a new one and place the core in an corner, so I have only the three place to upgrade. The other cores where obsolence and did go down with the production.

What good are cores in the higher levels?

Best part is that most of the Heinlein and Anderson are Omnibus volumes of 2 or 3 books.

Just sent you some bliss.

Anybody want 1100 population?

You can use the coupons as 6$ discounts on the Monthly Baen Bundles, and EARC's.

Good question. I'm thinking about getting rid of some of my cores since they don't seem all that useful anymore.

Most definitely. One could only hope that they ignore purple population (as there is almost no way anyone at a higher level can ever pay those murderous crows off).

Left my guys with excess energy for once - the bred like bunnies all night and used it all up (and then some) and ate all the food with their parties. Next time, it's brownouts before bedtime....

I've put a note up at Baen's Bar, and thought I'd mention it here too. No idea what's causing this. Cookie verification from switching computers & browsers? (I was on Opera; am now on Firefox.) Or maybe I got gifted a Tardis and it's stuck between timezones until I buy a Sonic Screwdriver asset, only that hasn't been coded in yet?

Followup: Counter is still apparently working (I got new surge points when I should have); I just don't have a visible counter. Hmm.
I'm logged in on several browsers and android devices, often at the same time. No ills here (but I have to change from freehold to assets or similar, not just refresh, each time I pick up an android tablet or the counter is goofy).

As assets become obsolete, they degrade in performance....

I've bled off bliss for days. Only at 20% per cycle (on purpose) does it seem to have any lasting effect (and even then, I haven't had negative bliss since the first few cycles of my first freehold (which I had no clue what I was doing).
