well lettuce is still much easier to grow then mushrooms with near to impossible to generate slime
or fish with even more near to impossible to generate algae (except for game abusing)

Now that I think about it, bleachstone is one resource that's hard but not impossible to obtain. Saltwater on the other hand only comes from worldgen and a saltwater geyser which may or may not be guaranteed on a map.

  • The output temperatures of the Ethanol Distillery and Rust Deoxydizer have been brought in line with their utility

Good sir it would appear that you "forgot" to include the numbers again, which would be even more important for the sake of testing. Why does this information have to stay so ambiguous?

  • Misaligned Start
  • Slime Splats
  • Volcanoes

9 out of 10 sound awesome, the last one is a pity but welp, not everything can be perfect like you :wilson_cool:

I'll be damned, just started a new colony on Rime today, i guess I'll remake the colony for the new traits. They should release a list of what each of the traits do. I know we can mouse hover it in game, but to be able to know this stuffs without opening a game would be nice.

This would be neat, but you already have puft that eat chlorine and drop bleach stone, but still, more way to make things are always helpful and will add variety to the game. 

Pufts are the devil.  I will go to any lengths, up to and including sacrificing dupes to volcanoes, to get resources without involving pufts.

Mmmh. +4 or +5 ?

Including the gas range, even if it has been calmed down a bit, high tier food remains a challenge apparently :)

I don't recall what it's rating was.  Sorry.

A way to create salt water from water would be nice, something antithesis to Desalinator, by mixing salt and water. That would help with asteroid with no tidepool but have rust. But again, it would be a bit more complicated and I think tidepool biome is available from Subsurface Ocean traits from world gen, so we can just roll that trait when we make new colony.

I understand, I did puft farm long time ago and never tried it anymore. There must be a reason for that, I just cant remember. But why?

To those complaining about their save being dead and wanting to continue... mealwood is still a thing that only takes 3 cycles to grow.

When I was ranching them, wrangling wasn't a thing and all we had to work with for flying critters were lures.  So you can imagine moving pufts around an asteroid one lure to the next was miserable.  Then there's the constant, paltry output.  Rather than saving their...ahem...bowel movements...for a big...forgive me...payoff...it's constant little outputs that require dupes running back and forth picking up a few grams of material or running auto-sweepers around the clock.

I mean, we just have different food options. For maps with slime, that's mushrooms and their variants, for tide pool maps that's waterweed. Not all maps need to be able to sustain all food production.

Wrangling work on fliers now? Not being able to corral the little bastards was my tipping point.  I get what Klei was going for with indirect control, but it just made something marginally useful into something not worth the trouble.

The lure. Now i remember. I remembered spending time building and decons lure around the map just to get them to my ranch, only for them to get away few cycles afterwards due to my dupe stand on the door and let it open. Let see if they might change something about Puft output, since that might be quite crucial for Lettuce farming, which are needed in some late game recipe. I personally never bother with late game recipe except Bun, which i get from farming Pincha and wild farming sleat wheat, albeit I never get to that much late game where I could explore the furthest Planet with my rocket, or have the entire asteroid mine out.

If you wait a bit I can actually extract more info out of the traits, I'm nearly done with looking at their files and just need to test a few as well as make the info readable

Generated Arboria with Glaciers geysers and slimes
I have a guess something bad happened here

That was a Glacier. It probably should not have used the temperature of the surroundings, I wonder if the devs actually have a temperatreOverwrite...

The nerf on ethanol production was a little too brutal but i loved the update anyways ! :) thanks klei! " also take a look in the rust biome dreckos doenst fit there  it feels lacking a critter or drecko variation for it".

Auto-wrangling from the Critter Drop-off works on fliers.  Standard Wrangling doesn't.

Reduced Gas Range input to 100g/s

I don't understand.

Instead of requiring 500 g/s of NatGas while running, it now only requires 100 g/s while running.  Still very disproportionate to the NatGas Generator, though.

Lettuce isn't really worth the effort of fertilization, even if it was fertilized by doing jazz hands at it once per 3 cycles.

I now want this to be a thing just so I can see the animators take a crack at duplicants doing jazz hands.

We need people to actually test out the puff strategy to see if it's balanced or not. Changing mass input/output of a building or critter is easy. The tricky part is to figure out which numbers provide a well balanced gameplay.
