Ok, I've probably played the Scientific tutorial about 10+ times now and I'm getting absolutely nowhere.
I've tried various strategies for it. Initially I was going all out on the non-essential high end stuff like Steel, Glass, and Chemicals. But in these cases the costs of the bare essentials like water, food, oxygen, fuel were completely overcoming my profits made on the higher end stuff.
So I switched over to making the essentials and selling those when they spiked, and yet again I'm somehow defeated. I've tried focusing on power, on researching upgrades, about the only thing I haven't tried is investing in sabotage. I just don't have the extra cash on hand most times to actually use the black market.
Anyone have a better idea on how to beat this scenario? I'm trying to take advantage of the production of advanced resources with the science buff, but it's just not getting me anywhere in the game. Inevitably one of the computers quickly buys me out before I even get a lvl 5 HQ.
