Not cool, bro! (1.8.0.2 adventure - NO RESIN!)[marked]
« on: May 01, 2017, 02:57:34 PM »

Try find any resin for plastic if you set the world biome to rainforest or swamp, I DARE you.

I return after several months away and what I see?
The *game-breaking* issues with world generation in adventure mode are *still* not resolved! >:(

People who respect their customers don't do that.
Apply a quick-and-dirty hack at least, will you?
Either block rainforest and swamp choices in the world generation menu or choose a single resin-bearing plant and make it grow in *all* biomes in adventure mode.

How many hours should I waste playing before I realize there is NO plastic in that particular world? Ever? >:(

Indeed!

In general those two Biomes never felt complete. Harvesting plants in those Biomes doesn't give much more than fibre.

Biome is only the main/birth biome in Adventure. If you go far away from your birth place, you can find other biomes. So just go a little far away to find plastic producing plants. the world generation has been optimized for several times, but if you set extreme parameters before start, you still can get some unreal terrains. yet, this is something that is required by some of our players. If you‘’d like terrains with normal appearance, you can paly with ordinary or default terrain settings.

^^ This. Took me less than 10 minutes to harvest resin in a 2x2km map set to rainforest. That said it would be nice if, say, Euphorbia was in every biome.

So it's a problem with the 40km x 40km map size?  :-\
That you have to go REALLY far (like many kilometers) before you find different biomes?

The generator menu needs some explaining then. Like a secondary right panel with detailed text explaining what the currently focused control does.
(remember that small section in the character screen of Fallout 1 and 2 ? Whatever you click, it shows a detailed explanation)
At least "Warning: you chose a resource-poor main biome for extra challenge". ::)

We'll see if the alarm of the extreme parameters can be added.
