Each time a building is leveled up, it receives a permanent 1% boost in cookie production, and the price increases by one Sugar Lump. You can also use a single sugar lump to refill all 3 of your worship swaps or refill 100 units of your magic meter. Leveling up Wizard Towers and Temples will unlock the Grimoire and Pantheon minigames, respectively.
Sugar Lump growth is affected by the system clock, similar to offline production. Turning the clock ahead will give you Sugar Lumps, and turning the clock back will increase time before the next Sugar Lump is available.
Currently, Sugar Lumps are the most precious element of the game, as they are very rare. For each of the level 10 achievements, one needs 55 Sugar Lumps, which makes 16*55. Using all upgrades and Golden Cookies and Force the Hand of Fate spell can help you to get 55 Sugar Lumps in about 40 days. This leaves 40*16=640 days for all level 10 achievements, which amounts to almost two years. Currently, it is not possible to reduce this time dramatically, although it is only waiting time, after all ... The Golden Sugar Lump makes the problem even worse, as here you need to pop 2000 Sugar Lumps on average, where the "Sweet" Golden Cookies do not count. That means you are up to 5 years on average for the Golden Sugar Lump, where you have to switch on your computer once a day. Good luck!
There are four different types of Sugar Lumps, each with varying effects. The most common Sugar Lump is a regular Sugar Lump, which has no special effects. There is a small chance to grow either a Bifurcated or Golden Sugar Lump. A Bifurcated Sugar Lump has a 50% chance to give you 2 sugar lumps instead of one.
Golden Sugar Lumps are much more powerful. When harvested, several things will happen: You will gain anywhere between two and seven Sugar Lumps, your current cookie amount will be doubled, and Golden Cookies will appear 10% more often for the next 24 hours.
During the Grandmapocalypse, Meaty Sugar Lumps may grow instead, which grant between 0 and 2 Sugar Lumps.
Selection of type of sugar lump follows Random list mechanism. The full procedure is:
- Add Normal to a pool.
- If you have upgrades Sucralosia Inutili, 10.5% chance to add Bifurcated to the pool, otherwise 10% chance to add Bifurcated to the pool.
- 0.1% chance to add Golden to the pool.
- 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% to add Meaty to the pool if the game is in Appeased, Awoken, Displeased and Angered phase of Grandmapocalypse respectively.
- Pick a random effect from the pool.
Note: Although the description for Sucralosia Inutilis says that "Bifurcated appear 5% more" this doesn't mean 5% is added on but instead multiplied with the base 10% therefore 10 * 1.05 = 10.5%
|Probability without Sucralosia Inutili||Average number
|Probability with Sucralosia Inutili||Average number
There is a bug, however, that refreshing the page will reset your current Sugar Lump to the default type. Also, any buildings upgraded with Sugar Lumps will reset to Level 1 when the game is closed or reloaded.
