Priority Arrangement Tips & Tricks:
Lets go over some arrangement ideas, but dont take these as set rules.
Arrange your priorities to your tastes.
* Youre going to get to a point where youll need to have minions working
at your factory workstations almost perpetually, so factory work should
be one of the highest priorities.
* Extinguishing fires should be at the top — it doesnt happen often, but
its in your best interest to get them stomped out as quickly as possible.
* Working in the home office should be a high priority as well, as incoming
victims are your primary source of food.
* Once you have traps that need to be refilled, the refilling job needs to
be set at the higher end of the priority list.
These are just some tips, and it all gets much easier once you have more
minions and those with more work slots. You should try to balance an individual
minions jobs so they have one “primary” task that will take up most of their
time (factory, laboratory, home office, building, mining) with the others
(chop wood, maintenance, refill, training) being less urgent.
Follow these steps:
* Pause the Game (Press Space)
* Press ESC to display the main menu.
* Then, go to minions section and sell all the minions.
* Press ESC and you will receive the money.
* Repeat this process as much as needed.
Note: This glitch was performed on an unpatched version of the game.
It is likely to eventually get patched.
Beginner Victim Behavior:
* The victims default behavior is to stick together and occasionally
explore a new room. The delay between going to a new room is very long.
* When encountering a distraction (TV, Bookcase, etc) A single victim will
move to and sit at the distraction.
* This victim is completely oblivious. You can move your monsters into the
room and even loudly murder someone else without them noticing. They do
become aware if attacked.
* The rest of the victims immediately move on to explore another room if a
person gets distracted. This simulates a horror movie trope.
* Every distraction increases a victims happiness. Let them live and encounter
distractions until they reach 20 happiness and they will call out and reduce
your suspicion level.
Basic Tips on Building:
* Things are built in the order you give the command. If you need a specific
item built ahead of the queue you dont have to undo all the commands. Select
a minion and right click the specific items.
You can tell them to “build this first.”
* Set floors first. Minions move dramatically faster over floor than on dirt.
There is a movement penalty for dirt and for carrying materials as well. On
top of that flooring seems to negate the carrying penalty. Overall you will
save huge amounts of building time if you set the floors first.
* Minions will wall themselves in.
Best to just plan for door positions ahead of time.
* You can place a door on top of a built wall and itll replace. What it doesnt
do is place a floor under the door. Youll have to do so manually.
* Light everything. Minions work faster in light and victims get scared in
* Light can be blocked by objects thus negating its benefits.
A good example of this is the table and chairs for kitchens.
* Tearing things down gives a full refund of all materials.
So feel free to rebuild and experiment.
Hiring New Minions:
I see a lot of people asking on the forum how to hire new minions.
Thus this quick guide.
-=How to Hire New Minions=-
This is the same as in my full Beginner's Guide. I'm setting this as a stand alone guide because it is a commonly asked question and I think more people would miss it if it was only part of a greater guide.
The primary way to get new minions is by spending Evilium in the Crypt. The Crypt is one of the buttons on the bottom of your screen and don't feel bad that you didn't think to click it before now. There is a lot to take in with the building, victims and feeding so it took me a while to realize its importance as well.
As you build your house and kill victims you'll unlock some minion slots. This is the best place to get new ones. It costs only 260 Evilium to get two applicants of the minion type of your choice and you can hire (or reject) both if you like. For reference that is only two days worth of Evilium if you are doing the 3 victim ad and getting them all alone. Which should be easy with the tips in the previous section.
With the other two crypt tabs you can spend Evilium to unlock new monster types
that you can put an ad out for and unlock more minion slots. Unlike putting out
an ad the price increases for every purchase in these tabs. So building up the
Evilium from proper victim slaying is highly recommended. Also do not hesitate
to spend your Evilium. Its used for nothing else and the more minions you have
the faster you can craft the horrendously expensive advanced tier stuff.
You will occasionally get a visit from a merchant who will sell you minions.
He draws from every type of monster and they cost around 4000 cash (not Evilium). I have personally rarely purchased from him. Mostly because he rarely has a minion that I really want.
