View Full Version : Dead Slug Bug

I recently reinstalled Startopia, and have trouble with Slugs dying in the Slugpartments. I seem to remember this being easy to fix, but do not remember how. Can anyone help?

I have the same problem. The only way I know to "fix" it, is to not install the slug pods. Only put the bar units. Maybe someone else knows of a solution?
Also, how do you get those slugs to give you energy? I never see them emit any gases. Maybe they don't like my station enough?

You have to max out the happiness of the slugs. Good ways to do this are to put in buildings and furniture that slugs like. Some good examples are the slugpartments, palace galactica, furies(art), roulesse wheel, curiosity shops and keep them away from salt hogs(who like different things, this isn't too difficult).
When they become happy enough, they'll leave a little blue ring on the deck. Pick it up and drop it in the recycler to get about 10,000E. Note that scuzzers won't pick it up, you have to do it manually.

I believe it has something to do with the amount of alcohol they've consumed. You may consider performing an autopsy* and given me the results. Perhaps we may be able to mod it.
(*=If you didn't know, just drop em' on a Lab-Analyzer and there should be a message concerning their death and misc. info.)

Well, I haven't analyzed them, but they drink at the slug bar and then sleep in the slug pods until they die.

I never build the damn things anyway so I've never had the problem . . .
But . . wasn't the problem fixed or helped by the patch? Are you patched up? If not then get it asap.

Yeah, I patched right after reinstalling it. I may have found the solution, but I need to test it. If it works, I'll post it here.
