Exobot population on asteroids

#1 Post by swaq » Thu Aug 29, 2019 2:34 am

Maybe I'm going crazy but I don't recall having as much difficulty colonizing asteroids with Exobots as I had in my latest game. I found I needed Subterranean Habitation, Symbiotic Biology, and Xenological Genetics before Exobots will survive on asteroids. This seems like a lot for the only(?) species that can colonize asteroids.

Playing on v0.4.8+ (r18048.bf54787a9-1), compiled today.

Exobots have been poor on asteroids for at least three years (and several releases). Maybe since always.

Yeah, I figured I just hadn't been paying attention before. I guess I'm just a little salty because I've lost three games on the same seed now and being able to establish Exobots on asteroids sooner would be a huge help for that particular galaxy layout. I should probably give up on it but now I want revenge, heh.

Or you need a robotic growth special before Xenological Genetics.
