looks like the only way you can deal with disease is to relocate them which is nightmare. it feels something random. if they add a better solution, like puting ash on them to prevent it or something,  can make this mechanic bearable :D

Disease doesn’t really matter once you get gekkos and twiggy trees. Although it will always affect berries I guess..

Gekkos, twiggy trees and honey are how I play around disease after the first replanting. The only thing that can take a while are the gekkos. After those are setup I burn the trash. The only downside is not being able to have a permanent eyeplant farm.

If disease actually served some game function, if it was combatable in some logical way like crafting pesticides (that would come perhaps with their own drawbacks), if it didn't mean just counting days and replanting crops which is just busywork and cannot be made faster or more efficient, then I would leave it on. I guess it serves to make Berries a little less useful, which is a needed nerf. But currently disease is just illogical.

What really baffles me is that it doesn't affect plants that aren't loaded by a nearby player. I thought the whole point of disease was to add to the deterioration of uninhabited camps in larger servers? No?

how is it illogical? Digging all the tufts and saplings in the world and bringing them into 1 spot doesn't sound ridiculous to you? It's an easy task that only needs to be done once for permanent benefits. This ought to have a downside.

leave grass tufts where they are on world gen and go harvest them each time if you don't want diseases.

I think the point is that the downside feels more like chore and not like an interesting core mechanic... It we could craft some sort of antidote for disease then that would be awesome... Maybe something you can use to protect them for a determined period of time so when you want to go an d do stuff somewhere else you don't feel like a chore is preventing you from fighting noses which is obvs more interesting than babysitting plants. 

The antidote is replanting them, no?

Im the type of player who spends his time mostly at making the base so having a disease ruining my perfect farm is unacceptable, tho i leave it in the caves for no reason at all

If the afflicted crops could respawn in some part of the world then I wouldn’t mind it but at the moment once something is diseased you’ve lost it forever with no legitimate way to get it back.

The lack of renewability of these plants is what makes me turn it off.

Disease just seems kinda tedious, but I leave it on anyway, if I lose a plant, big oof for me

As soon as the Pesticide-o-matic is introduced into the game, I'll turn diseases back on in my worlds. Until then, I'll keep them toggled off.

I just wish that the new lands would have a different eco-system which would not have any disease able to infect the resources.

Interesting mechanics, but too unnerving if you play alone: I think it was designed for run with many players, who then constantly monitor the base and can divide the most "thankless" tasks.
Alone it becomes just a watch that forces you every tot. days to redo your plantations, I prefer to keep it turned off on the surface.
(in the caves it makes sense to me that the plants die, try to plant an apple tree underground and see if it grows beautifully luxuriant between perennial darkness and landslides :'D)

Disease affects Gekkos too! At least I saw a diseased Gekko in caves when the update arrived.

that was really early release, grass gekkos were rid of disease

it was kinda creepy to just be in rockylands and then to encounter a melting gekko
