I Played the game and I have two balancing issues one you can't be really idle, because the scraps you get for doing nothing are roughly a third of the amount you get per click in your other games the ratio was 1:2, the other issue are the prices to upgrade the ratio of them seems to grow too drasticly in relation of the ressources you still get, especially for armor upgrades, but also to continue the story, after you got two or three endings and trying to get the next one, you'll have to pay a lot of garnets like 300000 per single click. I don't know if that was your intention, because it feels rather annoying. Heres also a bugreport: when I tried upgrading anything in the mining sector for Gold and Minerals everything costs always one garnet extra that isn't shown as cost, maybe a variable is the wrong type.
Regards and thanks for the nice game
Hey, first issue, doesn't really matter if you wait 24h. Secoud issue, the game rewards players that raise all upgrades at the same time over players that focus only on a single upgrade. If something costs too much, try to focus on other upgrades. There shouldn't ever be a time when you feel like the game is unfair. As fro the garnet cost; it's a rounding error. For example, if you have 10 garnet, and the cost displayed is 10; well it actually costs 10.1, so you can't buy it.
Thanks for playing!
