Please add a way to collect plorts of free-roaming slimes automatically.

I'm dying. Literally.

Thats just the tradeoff you have to make when you decide to free-ranch your slimes vs keeping them in corrals. If there was an easy way to collect plorts from free-ranched slimes, nobody would bother with corrals at all.

in the end, it has to be this way

I disagree. Keeping slimes in corrals feels more like "Slime Imprisoner" instead of "Slime Rancher". Also, there's no reason why there shouldn't be a gadget that allows collecting plorts of freeroaming slimes. Slime science is lategame stuff (so corrals still have an advantage by being available early in game) and supposed to make your life easier. Furthermore, when keeping free-ranch slimes you have to worry about turning slimes into tarrs, limiting you to possible largo combinations (as there are only 4 ranch regions available as of now, with the lab and the main ranch being less suitable for keeping slimes).

Slimes slimes...they are very unfit in corrals...but then everyone doesn't think about how zoo animals feel in their poorly made corrals, thinking of their dead families...think just a moment and reflex about all.

..Dead families?

I assume you are referring to roadside zoos instead of bigger, very humane zoos. Since slimes aren't real, they are just fine in small corrals but AI or not I do agree that it makes you feel guilty for taking slimes out of the wild and sticking them in tiny corrals.

And, I'm sorry, but I can't 'reflex' on anything. Did you mean reflect? That makes more sense.

(mockery isn't a very good habit, nor does it makes you seem all that mature. But I'll just gently ignore it, okay?)

It's a perfectly valid suggestion for a plort roomba, because it IS really difficult to gather 400 plorts in a room full of dangerous slimes that all simultaneously target you. The roomba wouldn't be OP (it'd probably only be able to suck up 100 plorts at a time, like a collector) and it could even break, but asking for one isn't unreasonable. Even when it's not dangerous, it IS really painstaking to suck up 500+ plorts and go back and forth getting rid of them all. It's not difficult in that case, but it is exceedingly dull.

I will be disappointed if the roomba does not explode in a massive shower of plorts flying in all directions.
