Drones Don't Double

Postby cosmiczacat » Mon Aug 27, 2018 7:53 am

Hey,

So, I recently got the Mochi's Extra Mile reward, and it works really well! Except for with the drones. The drones have sold hundreds of plorts ever since I got the reward, and not once has the money doubled. But with the plorts I sell by hand, it works fine. Is this a bug, or intentional? I believe it is a bug so I am posting it here.

They should indeed double, but there are a few things that need to be accounted for in determining if this is a bug. First lets ignore the chance, you probably should have had this occur by now.

Second, where are you when the drones are selling things?

My drones and slimes are in the docks. I added a Market Link down there, where the drones sell my plorts. I have sold plorts there myself as well, and I still get the reward.

I may be mistaken, but what I think Purplecharmanderz is getting to, is if you're not there in the area when they sell, you won't notice when the Mochi's Extra Mile is procs.

Have you ever noticed when your not in the area while drones sell, and you walk there later, you get a large sum of Newbucks without seeing the animation for each plort sold? This could be the case, and you may be getting the Extra Mile proc, but not even recognize it.

I'd recommend getting rid of your slimes down there, then add a number of plorts to a silo, and let the drones sell them. Repeat that 2-4 times, using the same type and number of plorts, and see if the number changes drastically.

You'd have to know the value of the plorts on the market each time, then do some simple math to see if there is any variance in the numbers. Those results could tell you if Extra Mile is working.

Usually I am down in the docks when they sell it anyway, as that is the only location I currently have slimes, so that can't be it. I have had the large sum all of a sudden a few times, but only like 10 percent of the time do I have that.

Jeb covered my point there, and if that isn't the case then something else may be up or you are getting horrible luck. Given though that you can proc it yourself I'd wadger you either aren't noticing it or horrible luck. I would need to double check a couple things before I go further with this.

Lol I am dumb. It DOES pop up, just doesn't show Mochi's face or the other sound. It just shows the extra money. I'm a derp and sorry for wasting everyones time.
