What does it take to beat expert mode?

Export mode requires far more upgrades in order to get everything in the game. The workbench in particular requires an upgrade for every single bench.

I wanted to know how many resources were required to completely upgrade all benches (ignoring TP / portal)… so I wrote down all the upgrades (I really didn’t expect that to take ~8 hours…) and wrote a script to figure it out.

Well, it turns out you need quite a few items.

I was going to make a nice UI so you could look up whatever you wanted… but it turns out that it requires some manual tweaking to get good results out of what I created, and making a UI for that requires way more time than I have at the moment. If you want to play with the code/data, I put it all up on GitHub.
