Well, I don’t know if they can’t pull exocraft. I have not been given ‘the eye’ while in an exocraft. :grin:


#663

They can’t. They don’t react at all to exocraft.


#664

I would imagine they never thought about our ships since they are not supposed to be under water…maybe the Horror was not supposed to be in such shallow water either. I will report it however, it was kinda fun.


#665

Exactly. That’s what we call an “edge-case” in development. Basically a rare state you don’t expect to happen, or think is impossible to happen, or it did never even occur to you that it might happen. As a result, quite often there’s no handling and also no testing for these cases.
And procgen is very much full of them, because those algorithms you wrote tend to do a lot of stuff you didn’t expect… :rofl:

I get a weird black strobe effect in the sky on my homewotld sometimes. This is whats strobing in and out…

Yeah, gigantic exocraft wheel :smiley:


#667

Nothing like taking your planet out for a spin! :red_car:


#668

I have a black square in the middle of the sun on my planet. It flashes on and off.


#669

At one of my underwater bases something is missing:


#670

I noticed a bit later, dead centre of the wheel is a racetrack module and the other side shows its from a pilgrim. strange one lol.


#671

That’s just cillian Murphy refueling the sun, after the end of Sunshine, he transcended to a god like state and is now janitor to the stars.


#672

I get that on my sun (or any sun for that matter) occasionally and I also get it fairly often during teleporter warp. Despite the similar graphics I haven’t noticed it during ship warp or portal travel.


#673

Quite often when I teleport, I learn something new.

One way of making you save money :roll_eyes:

These ruins are most certainly out of reach. Very high!

Speaking of very ‘high’.
“That’s some seriously good nipnip dude” :laughing:


#674

Aw man! I wonder which receipt he would give away… haha

A NipNip Cake?

That’s some serious thug life :joy:


#675

I found my first floating ruin.

Also, these weird halo mushrooms I found. They were solid when viewed from above.


Fauna :sauropod:
#676

There’s a joke in there somewhere about mushrooms, culling (the ancient video game art of not rendering what doesn’t need to be seen) and the culinary arts.


#677

I’ve been finding these on my homeworld recently. They look like a small disc from above and seem to have no function…any idea what they’re supposed to be?


#678

Honestly not sure but looks like a gas or oxygen harvester in its appearance.

It’s hard to tell from way up here in my nautilon, I’ll try take a closer look on each fall

Drove a little too close to my submerged staircase and this happened :blush:


#679

They are exocraft race track markers


#680

oooh indeed they are. I made a small racetrack round 3 bases some time ago. :slight_smile:


#681

:joy: We should all get together and have a competition. Can you make it into the clouds?
