Drone Ideas!

Postby LucianAnimations » Thu Mar 28, 2019 3:28 pm

So, I realized, drones can’t send items through a warp depot so another drone can pick them up and send them somewhere else, like a silo in another expansion, it would make the experience a lot better in my opinion because I have a farm in a different expansion, and have no space to store it near those slimes.

The problem might be because sections of the game unload when you're away from them, including ranch expansions. This is why the game utilises a catchup feature which tracks some progress for extended time away from the ranch.

I mean it wouldn't be much fun if you're waiting on one end for resources from your drones which are set to deposit resources from the other end, but they're not coming through because the Drones are unloaded. I don't think it'll work as well as you're hoping.

Add on the fact that delay, if ran fast enough, could potentially duplicate items with the current catch up system, its a nice concept, but it needs some reworking of the catch-up system before anything with it could reliably be done.
