So, I didn’t mind this one, but I was in a relaxed mood.
Initially confused, I flew away to the sunny side and shot a few leopard type creatures (the ones who want to eat me), expecting to get some results. A bit frustrating. Eventually found a bat like walking creature who liked sweetened compost so fed a couple.
When you feed creatures, they follow you, so I herded a couple and walked around a bit eventually gathering 6 or 7 together then gathering their “fruit”. Once you have a herd it doesn’t take long, the only difficulty is hiding from sentinels (just walk your herd in the opposite direction and hide behind a tree) and the occasional killer cat.
I too seem to get occasions whereby no creatures seem to appear. I can hear them, but nowhere to be found. It actually seems to have got worse since the last update where they stated that they had fixed this. Frustrating.
