Vanishing Dervishes?

Postby KitsuneRyo » Sun Jul 01, 2018 7:51 pm

So.... anyone else have their dervish slimes vanish? I had two..... I fell into the slime sands, and when I was rushing around to check things, one was gone. There was no mess around the ranch; no scattered plorts, no food tossed around, and no dervish slime wandering around outside the corral. This is the second time this has happened to me.

Old news, people have been reporting this for a few months now. Certain slimes have been falling prey to this bug, including my own. It's the reason I'm not playing the game right now outside of taking screenshots because constantly replacing them isn't my idea of fun.

According to Kara, they are aware of it. Fingers crossed they can figure out what's going on because I miss playing the game normally.

I actually have an idea on a possible cause. If movement isnt locked while the slimes systems are running on the ranch it may cause them to try catching up to that as well when the ranch reloads. This may at times ignore walls and explain the random teleportation factor we have seen. Now I dont know if this is the cause but it could be.

The only thing I noticed is that my Dervish Saber Largos are very jumpy and can often break the Air Net and get out of the coral. If there is no food around they'll just disappear without a trace.

Mmmm.... no, it can't be that.... There's only ever two, and they're pure Dervish slimes, not largos... plus, there's always plenty of food for them. It seems to be this glitch the others mentioned.

Any chance you had toys? Have had a report which doesnt follow this trend but it seems to be a common aspect so wanting to see if I can find more without it to figure things out.

For me, I had toys when my slime disappeared.

Yeah; I have a corral for each ranchable slime type, and they all have their specific toy... Including the Dervish slimes with the gryo top.

At the time I asked that I thought there was a lead there but have since been proven that isn’t the case.
