This is how I currently start my games: Get every available loan, then one or two more as they appear, depending on how much I’ve been able to borrow. Once I’ve got the first three loans, I spam research offices (about 30) and research all the advanced slots. As the research completes, I build an initial line that caps out the available importer capacity for the first room.
Does this mean loans are overpowered? Are research offices/research in general overpowered? Should this be doable or is it just an interesting and different way to start a new map?
