Fauna drill mod

Recommended Posts

    Hey! Its me again😄! I'm sorry i'm posting 2 topics back-to-back, but this one just doesn't fit the category the last one did.

    OK, picture this:

You just flattened all the soil around your shelter, and now its barren of all life. Its just a bleak, grey splotch in the middle of a colorful environment (if you didn't use a terrain analyzer.) Now what?

    Well, If what i'm thinking looks better in game than on paper, this could help. If there was a mod that you could put on your drill that, at the cost of soil/organic, you could replant the fauna local to the planet. Think about it. I for one love the life located on planets, and if you go late game like me, you soon start to see it all disappear. How would it work? Simple! You place the mod on your drill, and as long as you have a soil canister, the seeds that are most likely inside the soil in which you have collected (not the literal seeds that you can collect) can be replanted at the cost of the soil itself. The longer you hold the drill in one place, the larger the plant, but the more soil you use up. This would be how it could go from grass, condensed grass, and larger plants. (harmful plants cannot be spawned in this way. Or can they🤔.) If the soil thing doesn't sound too fancy, maybe the mod uses organic located in your inventory, who knows. Maybe you could "upgrade" already existing grass or fauna in the area. Maybe its just a mod for creative. What do you think? Anything to add?

o! love this, thank u! :) +1

I was thinking since by destroying flora we get organic, the mod... umm... seeder mod? should work from organic in the backpack. And since we have already inhibitor mod which gathering organic without deforming a surface, it would be easy to make just opposite thing - covering surface with flora without deforming a surface.

I was also thinking would be great to have different many types of organic specific to biomes it was gathered from.

Awesome idea, maybe like the mod eats organic and then u put it on your terrain tool and cover the land you want with some grass, greener soil, etc.
I love this idea, +2

Really nice idea! I've always wanted some way to replant flora. Maybe instead of or with that we could have some sort of single use item that you can place on the ground, which would then "explode" and put a bunch of flora back.

I've not seen disappearing plants and I'm 800 hours into my save game

Why not replant the seeds that we can collect? Isn't it the same thing or am I missing something?

No, not like thistlewhip and dagger root seeds, im talking about the theoretical "seeds" found in my soil concept (imaginary). This is all about replanting the variants of grass and small plants, the stuff you collect for organic, ya know?

For example, you COULD be able to replant all that purple grass and those green stem looking plants with the theoretical "seeds" that can be found in the soil once collected in a canister, and if you hold the left mouse button (or right trigger for console), you COULD grow that grass you just planted into larger plants, like those flag looking ones next to the shelter and gateway. But, If you want to "upgrade" the pre-existing grass or stem plants into those flag plants, you can just hold the same button, but over an already existing patch of grass or stem plant.

    another reason that I believe the mod should use organic is so it prevents an infinite organic grinder XD that wouldn't be good. I really enjoy this idea, and hope one day its looked into by the devs. Its a small addition (in the eyes of the player and not the developer, because its probably more complicated than it sounds to code it) but one that would be greatly appreciated. Like, A LOT.

I hate lifeless terrain
