Anyone found any flotsam recently?

Hey everyone, I was wondering if it was just that I was unlucky, not searching for it enough, or if people know if this feature was removed, but flotsam is something I have not seen in a few years and would like to know what happened to it. Any ideas?

Which type, the kind in ROG? The Rog ones only spawns by the Parrot set piece. Each world has one, including the Adventure mode ones.

What happened is that floatsam spawning anywhere at the world border (and faster during rain) get disabled if you have shipwrecked compatibility or hamlet compatibility. The mechanic work just fine in pure rog worlds.

That should be fixed tbh. Oceans used to look with all the debris floating everywhere and it gave them an actual use besides just being a world border.

Try the following in your world to see if flotsam exists or not.


c_countprefabs("flotsam")

 

Wow, I have no idea why I didn't think to do that, thanks. :)

I'm of the opinion that it's a bug. Whenever I find the set piece that has Wolly on it, flotsam is indeed near it when it's early in the game. However, it disappears after a few days and never respawns when it's a save file that is linked with SW or Hamlet. What's weird is that the Sea Worther can be fished up from flotsam, but it then despawns forever which leads back to me thinking it's a bug.

floatsam reappear after a rain and disappear after awhile, while as you can find Seaworther and Sillycan in both Tumbleweed and Graves.

it seems however that Floatsam do not remain forever now like before, instead they disappear after a few days when they spawn (after a rain)
