Formicarium Trapjaws (and others!) - I've Finally Done It!

#3
Two updates on this.
1) 'Edited' ants still transfer to Freeplay (Score!)
2) Leafcutter Medias do not increase food, despite the fact that their "Fungus Storage" description remains.

Unfortunately, I haven't got Army Ants working quite yet. I'll see what I can do, but no promises.

P.S. - If anyone wants to know how to do this, just give me a reply and I'll setup a guide or something. Anyway, have a good night / day (wherever you all live).

Haven't quite gotten Army Ants to work, but if you're talking about Leafcutter Medias, I have gotten them to work. Really, all I did was copy over some code from the "Extremis" level's save and thus obtained the ants it contained, lol.

Ha an interesting approach. The colony setup is just a big structure that is saved into the save file so yes it should work fine in freeplay. Interesting that this works. Army ants are not in extremis so I am nut surprised they don't work

Also, everyone - be sure to backup your save files before editing them. I almost lost one because I forgot to copy a line of binary code when 'transplanting' the data.

How do you access the code in the first place?
I opened the file "ExtremeHoldOutProgress.sav", then copied the code from there into "Colony7.sav" (the save file for my seventh Formicarium colony). You have to copy just a few specific lines of code, or it'll break your save. Until I can write an exact guide, you guys should use trial and error, with a lot of backups, lol. Don't edit your saves without them. Ofc, that's kind-of common knowledge, so I'm not really concerned that you guys won't use backups, but just in case. Anyway, have a good day!
