bit sad that the door opened on its own when i did the thing for it. i was hoping to get a gif of it beforehand. :( also how are we meant to store our echoes? we're not supposed to just leave them in a big glowing pile until we wanna use them right? they don't seem to go into warp depots.
If you want a Gordo as big as possible before starting to tremble, feed it 23 of its favorite; 32 for Pink! Thanks to @NoticeMeGenki for assisted research!

hot tip for keeping track of your quantums, their alternate realities don't have accessories that you put on them. so dress em up, and you can sort em out. :)

I wish there was like button! LOL Yes, this update is very very awesome! Any clue as to when a minimap (either in game or for download) will be available? I don't like getting lost as most of the Ruins look like other parts of the Ruins... :(

For Xbox and other platforms, it's typically about a week after PC/Mac/Linux.... :)

That's just a guess, so no promises.

Anyone else experiencing this when putting Quantum plorts into the refinery? They show up in the recipe screen but not the resource screen...

yep got that too. thankfully they're still fine to craft with. i forgot to keep track of how many treasure pods i found though. i think i'm on 8? =x also quantums are far too dangerous to leave hungry while you're exploring. i might need to keep them in the grotto just to keep them more or less contained. -_-;

i know quantum slimes' alternate reality selves are supposed to go through corrals, but are they supposed to drift upward and end up on the cliffs around my ranch? that seems a bit excessive even for slimes such as these...

also i suggest a quantum entanglement field upgrade for corrals to at least lessen their ability to phase their copies through corrals. i can't even wake up without copies being everywhere. if the phase lemon trees ever grow slower than everything else in my gardens, it's rip my ranch.

We've identified a couple of bugs with quantum slime ghosts and we should have a fix tomorrow. It should fix them getting into unreachable places.

Ghosts are indeed supposed to occasionally drift away as you don't know what the terrain looks like in whatever reality the ghost is occupying :)

LOOOVE the new update but i think instead of having to implement new upgrades over and over like a quantum slime shield for corrals i think the solar shield should be renamed to something more appropriate and have more uses or upgrades that add uses beyond the initial purchase
I love slime rancher and everything about it. I can't wait to see what this amazing idea will become in the near future!

i don't reaolly think rads are all that dangerous tbh. they only hurt you when you're in their clearly visible aura. though idk if quantum rads are supposed to have their alternate realities' auras in our reality. that just seems unfair. idk what the new expansion will look like, but i'm definitely gonna need a separate area solely for quantums. can't use the grotto atm though cuz of all the holes. =/ normally when a new slime comes out, i spend some time having a corral for each new largo. but there's no way that's happening with these guys. besides not having the space, even 5 corrals was chaotic. even one corral is a mess. i even consider myself a fropessional rancher and i don't stand a chance with anything but free-ranging for quantums. any lemons that fall on their own are stuck in another reality, and require a pogo plot themselves just to harvest. people wanted more of a challenge, well they got it.

How are the phase lemons even picked in the first place? They won't fall!!! I tried vacuuming from all angles, spraying with water, even jumping on the tree!!! They're fully grown, why won't they harvest!??
