Cookie Clicker: Idle Mode (How to Play)

Here is a Balances Idle Mode in Cookie Clicker. this mode won’t disable achievements. here is a tutorial on how to play it.


What is Idle Mode?

I made this mode or rather a different version of the original game to balance idle play. While this version is for everyone, it is meant for those players, who already reached “soft cap” and bought every single upgrade for heavenly chips and progression is now becoming slow. Unfortunately the only way to push even further is to play actively due to insane boosts from golden/wrath cookies. The difference between gameplay styles is so huge, that if you are lucky and with right combination of cookies you can get weeks worth of progress in just seconds. While I understand that active play should be rewarded, the gap between idle and active is in my opinion too much.

Installation guide:

  • If you are playing Cookie Clicker, export your save as a backup and close it.
  • Go to …\steamapps\common\Cookie Clicker\resources\app\src
  • Make a copy of “main.js” and “minigamePantheon.js” ( just to be safe )
  • Download files here
  • Unpack the file and replace “main.js” and “minigamePantheon.js” in …\steamapps\common\Cookie Clicker\resources\app\src

Start the game and enjoy better idle play 🙂
