You can beat the game; and within a reasonable amount of time. I wish a lot more idle games were that style.
Try Paperclips, if you haven't. I usually don't care for incremental games, but this one I played all the way through.

I think I may have broken/lost Paperclips...

In Stage 3, I had some septillion probes doing stuff, and some sextillion drifters to fight. I moved all my trust from self-replication into speed/exploration to just get through the universe. Of course, this meant before too long I had 0 probes.

So now, I try to launch more probes; with all my trust in Self-Replication / Hazard Remediation / Combat... but I can't get past the millions, because they die in combat against the sextillions of drifters before they can create more than that. Have I locked myself out completely?

Hm, I don't know, but there is a subreddit for the game. Maybe you can find an answer there: https://www.reddit.com/r/pAIperclip/.

There are some known ways to get stuck in the game unfortunately, though that's not one I personally know of. (But I've only played through once and don't know the mechanics well.)

Edit: Searching the subreddit for "drifters" turns up some people who got in a similar hole: https://www.reddit.com/r/pAIperclip/search?q=drifters&restrict_sr=on&sort=relevance&t=all. Maybe one of those solutions will work in your situation.

Yeah I think I basically tried the things they suggest. The people who were stuck there had trillions of drifters; I had far far more than that. I ended up using the Javascript hacking solution; just to set my number of probes back to where it was before I lost them all.

I've played Cookie Clicker numerous times over the years but never for more than 24 hours. I have previously enabled cheats to see all the game content. With this last thread bump I'm doing it for real no cheats. Less than 1 hour away from going into Day 6 I have 2.486 Quintillion cookies and have done a few Elder Pledges but otherwise fattening wrinklers for awhile. 10.1T CPS not accounting for wrinkler withering. My oal is to get all possible upgrades and achievements and do an ascension with however many HC it takes to maybe do a neverclick run or something. I'm not sure how committed I will be after the first ascension so i am drawing it out.

One of the achievements is 100 ascensions.  And, to get all achievements you need to play for over a year (because of sugar lumps).

There is a heavenly upgrade that reduces sugar lump growth times.

To upgrade all buildings to level 10, you need 855 sugar lumps.  So, more like two years.

Yeah I think it's legit to sometimes use console cheats, since the game has some issues like that. In my playthrough, I had a problem with misallocation of processors vs memory that I fixed with a console cheat, although I realized later that it probably would have been possible to fix it legitimately.

Yeah you’re screwed if you get > 30 processors before the end of stage 1.

I had the opposite problem. I realized early that memory was important, so that was fine, but then I kept dumping into it after 70. Then after going to space, I had way too few processors to bank the necessary creativity, and at first I didn't realize that I could use swarm computing with the space drones.

So I am now 12 days in and it's pretty boring now. I've got 290, 250, 250, 250, 200, 200, 190, 150, 150, 100, 100, 100, 72, 58, 50 buildings. Obviously just going for the building number achievements.

My primary strategy has been golden cookies. I've got Lucky, Serendipity, and Get Lucky and I'm in the 900s of GC's clicked. The best is when a Frenzy stacks with one of the building multipliers, like 7x(25x) or 7x(777x). Otherwise I get the lucky cookies which used to be pretty amazing and are now just drops in the ocean of quintillions. I'm at 780 quintillion all time/0 ascensions.

I ran Grandmapocalypse for a few days but wrinklers don't seem to really compare to strings of GCs.

I'm in the mid-900s of HC's so was thinking maybe at my first Hexillion I'd ascend. Looks like the next level is the Krumblor/spells bit and the Sugar Lumps (a pre req). Alternatively I'd wait till I had about 2400 HC so I could have 2 permanent upgrades on my first ascension (along with a few others).

any critique or advice?

Another thing, on ascension, is there any value in selling buildings beforehand? I was definietly thinking about a sell-off to buy the last few building milestones for more mil next run.

I would usually do that when I had those achievements to get.

Not sure exactly what you're planning for heavenly upgrades, but get the season switcher as soon as you possibly can.  It does wonders.

Also, wrinklers effectively multiply your CpS by six, so the grandmapocalypse is always good.  However, I would often only use One Mind so that I got the wrinklers and still 66% golden cookies.  At this point I rarely ever do anything on there so I have the full grandmapocalypse.

Yes, Grandmapocalypse makes sense at stage 1 but not at stage 3 (7x++ is strictly better than 6x). Once you go stage 3 I don't think you can get back to stage 1 without ascending.

For 1st ascension I was thinking Legacy, Permanent Slot, Heavenly cookies plus all 4 boxes), Starter Kit and Heavenly Luck. That's 328 HC's. I'll have over 1000 by morning. Another 2000 gets  a second permanent upgrade. Season switch should be prioritized over these?
