Jumpp Posted April 24, 2017 Share Posted April 24, 2017 Abstract: I once saw a hatch do something unusual and very convenient for me. I've never seen that behavior since, and I'd like to. Anyone know what was up? I've had some success getting hatches to go where I want. When I want to move them laterally, I build pneumatic doors next to their burrows, then wait for them to move nearer to the goal, build another door, and repeat. When I want to move them vertically, I herd them to a convenient natural tile, then dig a shaft beneath it and then dig out the top tile, dropping them where I want. Once in a while, though, I get one loose in my base where there's no natural tile in which to burrow. These are usually difficult to move. I have to slowly deconstruct and replace tiles, herding him into a smaller and smaller area, until he can't escape and I can deconstruct the tile he's standing on. On one memorable occsasion, though, the hatch cooperated. He was at the top of my base and I wanted to get him to descend through five decks of artificial tile. I deconstructed a tile several spaces away from him...and he leapt through it, down five spaces to the deck below. I deconstructed another tile, again several spaces away from him...and once again he leapt through it. I repeated this a few more times until he came to rest at the bottom where I wanted him. I've tried this since then, and the hatches don't cooperate. Only that one hatch, that one time, went jumping down these gaps. Anyone know why he did that, and how I might get other hatches to do it in the future? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
