[0.16.18] Biter slowly walking in circles in base

Post by loginformods » Wed Jan 24, 2018 10:05 pm

World has peaceful mode disabled
World was initially created in [0.16.17]

1) What did you do?
First small attack wave (~7 biters) attacked the copper miners on the left of the base
Killed them, then I saw 2 more biters moving slowely on the map, killed one in panic and let the other one live.

2) What happened?
Ran to the last biter and it didn't attack me or the buildings. It just moves slowly in circles.
Made a save at this point. (attached file)

Built a wall enclosure that it didn't attack (just walked against the wall)
Shot a single bullet at the biter. Biter does not aggro (but took normal damage)
At this point I assumed it self tamed and named it "Bity the friendly Biter"

Bity and I

3) What did you expect to happen instead? It might be obvious to you, but do it anyway!
Attack player/buildings or retreat

I'm afraid Bity will become rabid again in 0.16.19.
