Sorry you asked for settings. I can see a fair few strings in mod-settings.dat related to Rampant, but I'm not sure how to dump these out properly. About to try deleting mod-settings.dat, updating Rampant again, and see how that goes.

I tried debugging through the lua a bit but it seemed pretty fundamentally broken (I assume from picking up old settings).

4 years ago

I wrote a little bit of code to parse the settings as I'm stuck without Windows atm, bit rough but the following keys are present in the config that causes the issue:

I've got the values if they're needed.

4 years ago

The only thing to know is what settings where changed from default and what are those values.

(updated 4 years ago)

Ah not too sure. I think I tweaked the levels of biters (from 1->2?) and maybe tiers. I can get the values next to the keys, just will take a bit of time. Not sure how I'll determine which differ from default though.

Edit: Sorry I can get the changed ones, defaults are empty.

4 years ago

I figured you would have grabbed them out of the in-game mod settings.

I could screenshot them I guess. Here's a rough dump though (the doubles are wonky but I can get ingame values for those).

Deleting mod-settings.dat, updating to Rampant 0.16.30 (and downgrading Natural Evolutions Enemies 9.0.0 -> 8.1.6) gets things a bit further, not sure what the repercussions on the existing save are though (it loaded, I think any existing bases were deleted, but new tiles seem to have correct bug bases - elemental etc).

4 years ago

Downgrading Rampant did the job, sure enough. Thanks.

4 years ago

This should be fixed in the latest build. Thanks for the report.

(updated 4 years ago)

Thanks a lot for the fix and the mod, I've updated everything to the latest version and it's all working smoothly now.
