When Sugarcane gets out of control

#1 2018-04-28 15:27:27


Just a funny thing I woke up to.

I leave my Colony open before my colonies get to the point where they can basically spam buildings due to mass production of every resource possible, I typically play below medium because my computer can't really handle it.

Woke up to find a threat almost as bad as Lava, Sugarcane is everywhere with my lumberbugs continually trying to harvest wood elsewhere to no avail.

Absolutely hilarious.

Yep, I'm working to clear out my mass of sugar cane on a Zolarg colony and an LIS colony... I prefer to keep it, so I can avoid building sugar producing buildings until much later.

Yeah, I actually am also playing an Ice World Zolarg colony, and I have synthetic Crystalline that takes up roughly a quarter of the colony.

It's now growing so fast, i literally cannot outpace it's spread rate. xD

I absolutely love it.

Surround the sugarcane and crystalline with paths. Stops the growth.

I usually make a large square, size depends on resource demands and space available, and as long as you have enough of the square filled, both cane and crystal will grow faster than you can harvest it. That, or once your stores are filled then your rovers/bugs will just sit and chill while the resources fill up the square but not your entire map

Good Idea! I've been fighting the spread of sugarcane n my LIS colony for days now, I'll keep that in mind

It can get tedious at first, but it is totally worth it. In the early game, most of the time you either can't dedicate the resources to mass gathering the Crystal/Sugercane or you just don't have the storage to get all of it. And then mid-to-late game, when you spend a lot of time waiting on resources to stockpile, if you aren't actively devouring those particular resources, and they aren't contained by walls/paths, you are gonna drown in them.

At that point deleting them by hand is the only option and dear sweet baby J that is time consuming.
