[0.11.1] Big Worms Now Show Up In Early Game

Post by xnmo » Mon Nov 03, 2014 5:12 am

Wasn't quite sure if this is actually a bug or intentional. It wasn't mentioned in the changelogs so I don't really know. Worms are bugs either way right? :P

In a new game I started I noticed less than 3 hours in that there are big and medium worms already. I never saw big worms so early in any of my previous games and therefore thought they were tied to the evolution factor, but apparently that is no longer the case.

While I managed to pick off the spawner to the right it's absolutely impossible to get the left one or pick up the artifacts, and it will probably stay that way until I manage to get a bunch of laser turrets. Since it's so close by I'm sure it will get on my nerves pretty soon.

I had the same problem too. Now I can't get rid of the pesky spawners near my base.

I noticed this as well - I was only ever getting small biters/spitters and small nests, but when I went out killing the first nests, the third one had a big worm. wiped me out as I wasn't expecting it!

Big worms appearance was never dependent on time, so this is not really a bug.

Not even evolution factor? I know it's that way in the RSO mod, so I thought it was something copied from vanilla...
