Tames on passive/neutral

Recommended Posts

This has been a problem in Ark for a long time, please please please please don't bring your gamebreaking bugs with you into a new game, it hurts so damn much

To clarify, if you leave your tame on passive you're telling it to stand still no matter what and if something attacks it directly: stand still until it dies. HOW do you even teach a TIGER or BULL to follow such a command? It makes NO sense.

If you however tells it to be Neutral it will attack anything that attacks any of your tames until the attacker is dead, and go on a cruisade to do so, even across the map. More often that not just running into more dangerous shit in a neverending war of self defense.

How about a natural mode somewhere *between* Gandhi and Djenghis Khan. Please.

The easiest way to do this would be change the classic passive to the classsic turret. it would keep them in their place, but attacking hostiles within range. even for a tame that  has melee attacks only, it would keep us from loosing a tiger, three bulls, some cows, some chickens, and a sheep to a single scorpion overnight within a full circle of large wooden walls. Some of them would survive and most likely kill the scorpion. Just a totally random example of course 😡

It might work as in Ark.  Sit on a mount that is set to Passive and Do Not Follow.  Whistle "All Follow" and the other tames will follow that mount whilst the mount will remain where it is.  Set all the beasties to Neutral with whistle and then double check the mount is set to Passive.  Anything that gets in will be attacked and killed, and after the attack the beasties all go back to the vicinity of the Passive mount.

That might work. And I've seen it work in Ark, also in my case there are walls anyway... but the core mechanic of passive mode is nonesensical in any case and this needs to be adressed. Passive shouldn't mean total pacifist, it should mean stay and only defend if attacked directly. Otherwise, turret mode from Ark would work exactly like that so the code is already in the game just give the tames that option.
