Slime Science Crates turn into Glass Desert Crates

Postby rabbitslime » Tue Dec 26, 2017 12:40 am

I've noticed a particular bug involving Crates obtained from gordos. One of the three crates that a gordo spawns when popped is a crate filled with slime science resources. If that crate was left and one has exited and entered the game, that crate will change into a glass desert crate. I confirmed its a glass desert crate cause from time to time of accidentally exploiting this bug, I saw silver parsnips.

I was soft resetting the game to obtain rare baubles, like tarr and lucky ones.

Also with the glitch, one can skip the ancient ruins entirely and obtain glass desert food and slimes. This is excludes the painted hen, however. On a similar note, one can skip the indigo quarry by getting rad plorts in the wilds.

I would like to point out that most of Ogden's trades require Heart Beets.

I'm sure this glitch is unintended; maybe its a data overflow when saving...
Heart Beets can be found in the dry reef. The first area has a patch of heart beet to the right by a small wall. If the the indigo quarry is locked and the rad plorts are obtained through the wilds, the only exclusive items you might not get is oca oca, odd onions and crystal slime. I'm not so sure if rock gordoes spawn indigo quarry crates.

Well, according to the game's files the slime science crates don't exist as a separate entity from the other zone-specific crates, so maybe that's why?

From my trial and errors, I only saw prickly pears and silver parsnips, don't know if glass desert slimes spawn from those specific crates. One can still snare dervish and mosaic gordos through this glitch. Maybe the glitch can be patched by giving the slime science crates a value of their own.

Huh, that's interesting. I've never seen that happen before.
Come on, can anyone escape the beauty of the ancient ruins? I'm not the only one, right?
Right?

maybe instead of having the slime science crates change in to a desert variant when saved, maybe it should revert to a regular crate, I don't think its a good idea to skip the ancient ruins.
