Drone limit?

Postby Missklang » Tue Jul 17, 2018 1:53 pm

I have a big question regarding the new update. There is apparently a drone limit per ranch extension? What is this??
Image
And worse of all, it's in the overgrowth... and in the trailer, we can clearly see three at the same time.

Me, I could only put in 2

T^T this is sad

You get two Drones per ranch expansion. Main Ranch area, Overgrowth, Grotto, Docks, Lab, and Mochi's and Ogden's areas. You can use a maximum of 14 Drones at once.

I can't speak for the trailer but usually trailers showcase stuff in the pre-release that we don't get later. Like Puddle Slimes in the Wilds. Having 3 in that shot was obviously done for the sake of the video.

The trailer could be made in beta builds, where 3 drones was the limit, but they changed it for release build. Probably, 3 drones per expansion is too much, since you can easily reprogram all the drones.

The Overgrowth really needs three since a lot of us like having free-range slimes there, so a third drone to pick up plorts off the ground and sell them really would be nice. My chickens are tired of being scooped up when I'm trying to grab Hunter and Saber plorts!

Similarly in the Docks for me; I've got the Puddle Slimes and an incinerator, with an Odd Onion garden. I have a drone that grabs carrots from that garden and drop into the incinerator for my fire slimes (smart, isn't it?), but I can't get a drone to take both Pudddle Plorts AND Fire Plorts. Can't drop them in the refinery either, but at least taking to a silo would be helpful.

The drones won't do all of the work you need to do. That's the point. They only can help you a little bit. You still need to manage your expansions. Like the docks. In your case, you can't let the drones do everything for you there. You still need to do things yourself in every expansion. It's up to you what.
And with free-range slimes in the overgrowth, why you need three drones? There's two for the plorts.

Because I have more than the free range hunter-sabers. I have Crystal Mosaics and a garden with Silver Parsnips for them, so need a food->Corral and Plort-> Market drones as well.

I believe he needs more than 2 drones for this;
drone 1 -> stuff autofeeder with silver parsnips
drone 2 -> collect plorts from corral
drone 3 -> collect plorts from hunter-sabers

I believe that drones need an option to collect plorts/food everywhere when they see it, either on the ground, a warp depot or a plort collector.

Same as my main ranch, my grotto and the science lab? All I have to do in those three zones is water the drone charging station.

Seriously, though. A club reward at level 33 to get an extra drone would be the way to go - by then you've effectively completed the game, so being able to fully automate the ranch so you can just sit back and chillax would be awesome.

There is no level 33.

For some reason I remembered the current max rewards level as 32, not 28. Fine, put it in at level 29 then.

There is no level 33.

Just going to ask if you have given it any thought if that is actually known and is part of the suggestion rather than them not knowing.

Wait, what are you saying? Not to be rude, but I don't get your meaning.

Did you give any thought into the idea that they knew rank 33 didn't exist, and were suggesting more ranks as a part of the suggestion?.

I should clarify my earlier post.

I thought as I was writing that the maximum club level was 32, which would make 33 a new tier of rewards.

I have had it explained that the maximum club level is actually 28, so I would put a drone upgrade at level 29 - again, a new tier of rewards.

Alternately, drone upgrades when we start working for Viktor.

I have about 5 in the Main Ranch, 3 in the Lab, 2 in the Grotto, and one in the Overgrowth. I can add more to each, too.

Reminds me of the Odgen's Wild Update trailer where a puddle slime appears, but in the game, they don't appear in the wilds
