In Topic: [Solved] Burner releases no essence

28 October 2019 - 07:12 PM

Cullis gates only convert things you drop into them, into essence. It happens at once, when the thing lands in the purple area of the gate. Thing is destroyed, essence generated, and from there it does what essence does.

I did drop monsters into them. That tooltip informed correctly.

I just haven’t seen these gates release Essence. I’ve had to keep my cursor nearby to extract Essence.

I actually would prefer that gates don’t release essence, but instead destroy essence that isn’t extracted after some short enough delay, for gameplay balance.

In Topic: 1 wall, many builders

28 October 2019 - 07:05 PM

Builder AI no longer waits for the one builder that actually reserved a bit of work to get to a construction site. Any available builders go after it, since many players kept complaining about a building stuck one or two work ticks away from completion because of the old behavior, and the builder was on the other side of the village, or getting distracted by something.

Then the current solution seems to be a knee-jerk reaction that doesn’t really solve that reported issue. The dev skipped over the real solution, and created a makeshift solution that caused more compounded problems.

The real solution is to simply detect distances from the work. Swap workers among tasks given to the same role. So a closer Builder can give up building a House, say, and go finish up a building that is a few ticks away from completing. Meanwhile, a farther Builder will take over building said House.

Also, the dev needs to add a hidden building priority. A project a few ticks from completion would have very high priority. This does seem to already be in place, since supplied walls are targeted for completion right away.

Steam forums and official discord server are the primary locations that get attention. These forums see very little activity and aren't checked much.

Then I prefer to use these forums. I don’t want other players to know about game-breaking bugs. I prefer to inform the dev about these bugs.

The game just left early access on Oct. 14th.

That’s why I bought it. I haven’t had time to completely list down everything that works. But those features that work make this game an absolute joy that is more realized (streamlined, playable) compared to Dwarf Fortress.

Hmm. Maybe I was wrong about this. I turned off the Crystal Motivator, and it seems the burner's essence is indeed being transported to the essence collectors. I'll stop all crystal and wood harvesters just to confirm this.

Now, I think the Cullis Gates don't release essence.
