With the release of DarkForest plugins, all the avid crypto-gamers are wondering: "How can I use this to get a competitive advantage?"
How do I get ahead?
The best way to get ahead in Dark Forest is to explore. Thanks to the new Remote Explorer Plugin, you can: find out who's near your territory, expand your planets, or simply find the closest asteroid field - all automatically, without having to use your computer's precious resources.
What do I get?
We'll show you how to get the Remote Explorer plugin up and running in <10 minutes at 1.3k hashes/sec for only $20/month!
Let's hop right into it.
Step 0: Set up your account(s)
Step 1: Install the Remote Explorer plugin
Open your in-game UI for Plugins and click "Add Plugin." Then paste the code you just copied!
Note: If you haven't enabled plugins click the red enable button 8 times to unlock Plugins
Step 2: Start your Remote Explorer server
Go to the Remote Explorer server Github repository and click the "Fork" button in the top right. If prompted, fork it to your personal Github account
Click here to deploy on Zeet.
If prompted, fill in your payment details. Click Continue then Deploy Now on the
mimc-fast project in the list. Wait for the build to complete.
Note: Make sure you don't use Zeet's Trial tier. It shares resources with others, and the Remote Explorer server needs its own resources. If you use the link above you should be set
Don't see your repo in the list? Click the Manage Repositories button, and make sure Zeet has Repository Access to the
Step 3: Connect to your Remote Explorer server
Once you see the green "Deployed" badge, you're ready to connect! Click the Copy icon next to the Visit button.
In your game UI, find the Remote Explorer Server URL input box. Paste the URL you just copied, and add
/mine to the end of it.
Click "Explore!" and you're done! You should now be getting an additional ~1.3k hashes/sec. Want 5k hashes/sec? Keep reading...
Step 4: Upgrading your Remote Explorer Web Server (Infinitely 😉)
Upgrading your web server lets you achieve higher hash rates, and is extremely easy with Zeet
The server we setup earlier has 1 CPU core and 1 GB of RAM, but by adding more CPU cores you can up the hash rate even more. There are 2 options to increase the number of CPU cores, and thus the hash rates of the Remote Explorer:
- Add more CPU cores - ($15/core)
- Add more replicas - This is multiplier. 5 instances with 1 CPU core each is the same as 1 instance with 5 cores. If you create multiple replicas, add the URL in-game the same amount of times!
All you have to do is change the Size in the Settings tab of your project. Contact support if you want even more powerful hashing servers!
With that, you've now got a hashing powerhouse ready to conquer the Dark Forest!
Good Luck, and Happy Exploring!
