The following are strategies for the Complete Golden Age scenario. Please feel free to add your own strategies, tips, and Q&A here:

Strategy 1Edit

Recommended genes:

  1. As with other strategies, the key to this is to allow mutations to occur. Devolving symptoms costs DNA, and you'll need every DNA Point you can get.
  2. Select Neurax Worm, Casual Difficulty, and then start in Saudi Arabia, otherwise known as Plague Center Prime.
  3. Immediately evolve Concertina Locomotion, Undulatory Locomotion, Eggs 1, and Eggs 2.
  4. As soon as you can, evolve Drug Resistance 1. Due to the increased overall wealth of the world, almost every country is rich.
  5. Evolve Genetic Swap as soon as possible. This will increase the mutation rate, which is what we want.
  6. Evolve Neural Breach, Cerebral Tendrils, and Frontal Mesh. After this, evolve Trojan Planes 1.
  7. Evolve Water 1 and Air 1 when able, and evolve Insect 1 to increase hot climate infectivity.
  8. When the Trojan Planes start flying, send the Planes to the following countries: Caribbean, Greenland, New Zealand, New Guinea, Philippines, Central Europe, and Brazil. Send the Trojan Planes to countries as needed. If you're detected, no matter. Just use the Trojan Planes to jump across the closed borders.
  9. Evolve Cold Resistance 1 to increase infectivity in cold countries, especially Greenland.
  10. Evolve Genetic Hardening 1 to help slow the cure effort, and evolve the symptoms Immaturity, Mania, Obsession, Devotion, and Transcendence.
  11. Once Transcendence is evolved, send Trojan Planes as needed to uninfected countries or countries that are ... reluctant to embrace the Neurax Worm.
  12. Enjoy the world bowing down to the Neurax Worm, and laugh. Congratulations. You have completed Golden Age. -DiseaseMaster7
