Large planter issues

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I figured it's time to note some of the issues with the large planters to hopefully get them fixed.

 

Issue #1 (this might be intended?)

There are some weird stuff going on with difficulty. I can only speculate what's going on, but my best speculation based on observations is that it totally ignores the crop difficulty and uses a (very low) base difficulty. It makes them viable for production but bad for skilling at higher skill. If this is intended, then ignore this issue.

 

Issue #2

GoldFo rune on a rake doesn't seem to work on large planters. I think it's supposed to give your a message in event tab or something similar when it procs but you never get this message on a large planter.

 

Issue #3

sowing by activating a container doesn't work. I love the recent change of being able to activate the container and it'll use the first item inside it, but this doesn't work everywhere. Would be nice if this consistently worked where it should, such as sowing on large planters (it works for sowing on the ground but not large planters..), taming, imping, adding upkeep tokens, etc.

 

Issue #4 (this might be by design to not risk making them OP)

Raking only seem to be able to fail or succeed, giving +1 to harvest on success. This means that you can only ever get +4 from raking 4 times, assuming all 4 actions succeed. Unfortunately, this makes it not worth doing for yield at higher skill, since spending 2+4=6 actions to get between 8-12 yield instead of spending 2 actions and get 8 at 90+ skill is clearly inferior and a bit waste of time unless you want skill. Raking on the ground has a range of success. If this is intended, then ignore this issue.

 

Issue #5 (this might be intended?)

Large planters don't count as decoration on deed so they take decay damage on a deed. There are other utility items that never take decay damage while on a deed such as forges, hitching posts, etc. If this is intended, then ignore this issue.

 

If any gms want to chime in and confirm what's intended and what isn't, that'd be great!

I've been meaning to test whether applying a gold rune of Fo, or bronze tune of Libila, to the large planter itself has any sort of effect. I also have one rare large planter I've been meaning to experiment with, to see if rarity has any sort of effect. In either case it will take some time to gather enough data to arrive at a conclusion (at least enough to mathematically overcome the inevitable "it's RNG" reactions.)

 

I can confirm that I've never gotten the "extra effect" message while using a rake enhanced with a gold rune of Fo on a large planter, having done so daily with twelve large planters growing mushrooms for quite some time.

 

It's also known (and included in the wiki) that Wild Growth doesn't function on crops growing in large planters. (An alliance member also confirmed recently that it doesn't work on trellis either.)

I wouldn't mind at least getting a response on what's intended and what isn't.

 

I asked Budda in the factional fight stream chat if the large planter issues would be addressed and his response was if they are reported.

 

So I reported.

 

Feels bad that some posts a day old get responses but a month old don't.

Bump, still hoping for a response of some kind

Hello, I've checked with the team and these are working as intended but I will add issues 3 and 5 to the list :)
