Idea for new enemy: Worms

Postby NetcodeNightmare » Wed Dec 27, 2017 10:29 pm

I haven't yet beat Adventure Mode but I find ranch life a little.... peaceful. It's easy to prevent Tarr outbreaks if you keep your corrals and your plorts in order. My idea is for a new type of enemy to oppose the Rancher, so there's more difficulty and more diversity in opposition instead of just having a tarr.
Worms would naturally spawn in the Ranch and start small, being harmless. They'd feed on dropped fruit and veggies that were never picked up. After feeding quite a bit they would grow and start to feed on slimes. They'd be hard to miss once full size and wiggle around.
As for how they'd be destroyed, water might be too easy since it can be carried around. What if the player had to sic a hunter slime or hunter-type largo (or maybe even a tarr? that would be interesting!) on a worm to eat it?

Thoughts?

I'm not too sure if that would be good.

This really doesn't suit the game.

What if they didn't feed on slimes and were only a nuisance to fruit and veggies?

After all, slimes have antagonists (Tarrs) so why not food?

food already happens to rot... maybe one can implement this in the iron rancher mode, making it more feasible to forage for food than grow stuff.

Tarrs are the incentives to keep slimes apart, balancing slimes that would have been overpowered.

It's true food already rots, but there's really nothing lost when it grows back in 12 real-minutes with the right upgrades (and with Miracle mix it will go even longer without rotting). It's more of an inconvenience than a problem.

That's from SR, what if the wiggle worm was a pest that ate plorts?

this would be weird because it would be the only thing that goes underground but nothing else does

Like the idea of worms, but my idea would perhaps be more of a pest-worm, if that makes any sense.
messes up your crops, make patches of them rot or "diseased", spreading garden to garden if not cleared out.

I like that the ranching part of the game is chill. Maybe if it was added to a harder version of the game, but I don't want worms in the game now, I like being able to not have to worry about being able to feed all my slimes. Don't get me wrong, it's a good idea, but I'm not sure it fits the rest of the game. In my mind, at least, this is a relaxed exploration game where there's also a farming/zoo element. The low stress is why it's one of my favorites. I can come back, scoop up a bunch of garden stuff, feed slimes, collect plorts, and then go back out to exploration.
