If you want a Gordo as big as possible before starting to tremble, feed it 21 of any food that isn't its favorite!

You know based on Some of the plortnomic entries in the slimpedia I can see what a few of the plorts from specific slimes would do, Maybe a Cloaking Mechanism from hunter plorts to avoid detection form TARRs. A Slower Decent Mechanism from Phosphors, or a glow to help light up darker areas without the flashlight. Maybe a Boom plort Grenade to clear out large swarms of TARR (with risks of taking dammage aswell)
Support the goal of Golden Puddles!

This update looks like it will be awesome! I think the taming bell will calm down feral largos when placed. I really like the idea of mining gems and other resources from the ground. Nice work Monomi Park!

I'm wondering what the slime stage will be for, unless it's just decorative/just for fun.

i'd like to point out it's actually called "#1 slime stage" which doesn't really help with figuring out what it does but still o3o

The stage definitely falls in the category of 'silly gadgets.' But it's all more fun with a few of those in the mix :)

i'm hoping the lab will be the basis for mod support ie fan-made slimes once the game's out of alpha :3

Can't wait to get hold of those BOUNCE PADS. with a little of creativeness it could be tons of fun. I mean, SCIENCE!
seems that the process is quite long and complicated though. can't we have different tabs and just get a blueprint, switch tab and see what it needs to build? I feel like I'll be running around a lot for "hey, I forgot to buy this blueprint".
THEY'RE SO GODDAM CUTE!

For the extractors, do the area(Dry Reef, Moss Blanket, Indigo Quarry, Glass Desert) of which they're placed in have an impact on the variation of the resource like apiaries producing different honey because of the different flowers in each area? If so not only will it spice up the aesthetics, but it could mean those glowing buds in the Moss Blanket could also have a gameplay use.

Previously undiscovered resources? If the glass desert is going to be slated for v0.50 then does this mean we're going to be having new resources from existing assets? Like if heartbeets, henhens or similar could be refined down into a new resource? Or will all of these resources be derived from the extractors?

Has a limit on the storage in the refinery been discussed? I could personally see myself keeping maybe one or two sale silos for storing plorts and then just tossing overflow in the refinery.

Overall though I'm really pleased with the teaser. It gives us as players the opportunity to have more goals and an actual USE for our overabundance of resources while at the same time allowing us to interact with our world in new and interesting ways. Looks like it'll be a fantastic content patch, I can't wait!

I'm quite excited for the next update as well. I spent about 10 hours on Slime Rancher non-stop because of just how good of a game it is. Sadly, though, I eventually ran out of things to do in the game. Once all goals are gone, the experience stagnates. I think slime science is absolutely the best step to solving this conundrum.
Slime Ranch? More like RANCH DRESSING, am I right!?

Zenith, the resources are obtained from the existing zones. You'll primarily be using drills, pumps, and apiaries to obtain them.

Regarding storage limits, I think the current refinery allows for up to 999 of any given item. However, they can only be used for building gadgets once they're deposited.
