[1.1.2654] Thrumbo can eat an unplanted tree
« on: July 03, 2020, 11:31:49 AM »

See screenshot. This is probably more in the exploit territory rather than an outright bug. On an extreme desert you can save your crops by "planting" cacti in front of a thrumbo - it will just keep eating the not-yet-planted cactus and moving on. Interestingly they do ignore hay grass next to them, presumably because it's not grown up enough.

The nutrition for an unplanted tree is 0.0, so how can this be exploited?

I didn't know about the 0 nutrition. Still, all you need is one colonist (or maybe two, to be safe) constantly "planting" and thrumbos will stay where they are and not move on to the rest of your crops. Probably not a huge deal on regular maps but a pretty big deal on extreme desert, especially if you are growing things like devilstrand.

But normaly thrumbo don't care about other crop's because their main food are trees.

Normally they don't but on extreme desert they do and a group of thrumbos can be pretty devastating, essentially a lighter version of toxic fallout.

Thanks for the report! I'll place it in our bug pool (though bear in mind this is pretty low priority all things considered).
