[BUG] Terraforming "grassland" or what

Postby bleary » Thu Apr 19, 2018 6:07 pm

I've terraformed all the grassland (leaving a forest, which isn't grassland) but didn't get the objective. Either the objective needs to be clarified, or there's a bug.

The trick about Terraformer missions is that you need to remember where you've used it before. You have 4 turns and 4 directions. You need to make sure you hit all 4 by the end.
So yes, you missed a spot and that forest counts as Grassland... it is an element placed on a Grassland tile.

I know what I should have done. It's just there's no in-game way, as far as I'm aware, to learn that "forests" are a type of "grassland". (Which doesn't make sense to me, if there's one thing I know about forests, it's that they're not generally full of grass)

So you'd like it to say "Terraform all greenery tiles into desert" instead of Grassland?
Honestly, I think the objective should say "Terraform each direction around the Terraformer" and give you an indicator of which sides you've cleaned up so there's no ambiguity on what has to be done.

I feel like this is more a "lack of thinking" problem rather than a "bug" per se. And what's on the bottom of forests then? Green fabric?

The goal didn't turn green, like all other in-mission achievements (like destroy all mountains or kill/block x vek) do. It's a bit subtle but it's there. Also subtle-but-there, if you hover over terraformed tiles they tell you they're terraformed. And if you hover over non-terraformed tiles they don't. And it's very commonly obvious that you have to go all 4 ways in the 4 turns provided. At least, it was to me and seemingly everybody else because this hasn't come up before and I never even considered it.

Though I agree with you. "Terraform all land around the terraformer back to desert" would be better.

I'm adding a note about the phrasing of this objective to our list of player-suggested improvements.
