Re: lotsofphil's HCNP TT (Mongoose) - DitR 2 - 6/1133 - 6 skill

Wow! A tremendous run. Congrats. I've never done the beach. Does it help to adventure somewhere else after getting gun powders? Thanks, yours was pretty impressive too. I don't think the gunpowders operate on any sort of delay(). The reason I split it up is that the non-coms at the beach helped me ...

Thanks for running those numbers. I was using that optimizer but it was my first time doing so. I'd forgotten a bunch of things but the conclusion is largely the same.
