Gassy Moos not eating

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: OSX Fixed

Gassy Moos are supposed to eat Gas Grass. However, they do not, at all. It doesn't matter if the Gas Grass is tame or wild, they won't eat, and thus won't produce Natural Gas.

This makes them totally useless, and also makes the farming of gas grass totally useless as well.

I only tested in sandbox with wild Gassy Moos, however another bug report mention they don't eat when domesticated as well:

 

Here is a test sandbox save showing the issue:

Steps to Reproduce
  • Fullfill Gas Grass growth requirements
  • Put a Gassy Moo in the room
  • Gassy Moo stays hungry despite perfectly good Gas Grass available

User Feedback


A developer has marked this issue as fixed. This means that the issue has been addressed in the current development build and will likely be in the next update.

Let's look at the decompiled code.

The last parameter of the Diet.Info (I marked it in red) eats_plants_directly obviously should be true.

Why didn't this error show up before ?
In the previous version 498381, and in older versions, this parameter only affected descriptions.
Now in the current version, the parameter affects the food search algorithm.
The poor cow doesn't even try to look for plants.

let's compare the descriptions of the diets of these two herbivores.

This might be a silly question but, did anyone try feeding it harvested gas grass directly, e.g., dropped it on the floor or from a critter feeder? Just asking because the tooltip say gas grass in (kg/cycle) and not in (growth/cycle) as it does for dreckos.

What about dropping it on the floor?

In any case, iirc they are supposed to eat the grass from the plant, perhaps it would be a good opportunity to fix the tooltip with the appropriate amount of growth/cycle.
