Keeping track of seedling stats
Does anybody keeps track of stats of seedlings? In the beginning it seems possible, but when you have a large number of asteroids, it's really impossible to do it. Add to it that if a seedling have a high stat and another higher, it keeps track only of the highest, it looses all of its purpose.

If you mean the stats of individual seedlings, then there *is* a way you can keep track of them. Its entirely visual though. The seedling's body reflects its max health, its wings reflect its speed, and its nose (shooter? mouth?) reflect its strength. The larger of any of these, the higher its stat. So if you zoom in on the seedlings from a tiny world with low stats, it will also be tiny. If you zoom in on one from a world where 2 stats are high, but the other is low, you will see that reflected in the seedlings body parts.
As for the seedlings current health, that is reflected by how red they are (just like trees on asteroids that are being attacked). The more red, the more likely to die. Trees can heal, I dont know if seedlings can, I've never paid much attention.

If you are talking about that right click menu where you can split your seedlings up based on their stats, I know it keeps track of a range of the highest ones for the categories. I think its like the top half of the stat pool. Like if I move just the speedy seedlings, I don't get JUST the very fastest, I get like the ones that are in the top half to third of possible speed. It's still useful, because those are going to be the best ones to attack with (fast ones win much faster, strong ones can too but often die off quick, and healthy ones can last a while as well as capture a fallen tree really quickly)

Thanks! i didn't know about anything you said on your first paragraph.

About spliting seedlings, I'm not sure if it's how you said. I say that because I had like 3 seedling that grew up from an asteroid with really high speed and energy, both at the same level, and strength a little lower than these stats, and the information I got back was only about high speed and energy, nothing about strength.

Now, about meaning of stats, why do you say the high speed is good to attack? It's not strength that's good to attack seedlings and energy to attack cores?

Well, they are good for attack because of two reasons: 1) you can reinforce your front lines with high speed seedlings much faster because they go fast. 2) when they attack an enemy asteroid they seem to get hit less by defense trees (try the mission map forest in dark matter mode, the slow seedlings from the asteroids at the end get absolutely murdered by the defense tree asteroids, while the fast seedlings can take them out)

fast super speedlings are crazy good, even with weak strength, because they can hit so many times and fly away from fights so fast. I've taken to planting my flowers almost entirely so that I get super speedlings because they seem to be much more effective then the defensive flowers

I see, thanks for the info.

But, about the double-click menu, where you get to choose what high stat group of seedlings you move, it looks like a really bad implemented design. If your seedlings are from an asteroid with like rate 10 energy and speed and rate 9 strength, they will show as high energy/speed seedlings, when in a group from and asteroid with rate 8 strength and rate 7 energy and speed will show as high strength seedlings. Or maybe I missed something.

I wont argue with you on it not being well implemented. Theres no way to select anything but the best ones
Dotto Nov 19, 2012 @ 6:14pm 
What I'm saying is that, from what I've seen, you can't necessarily chose the best ones. In a range from 1 to 10, you pick an asteroid with rate 10 energy and rate 9 strength, it will show its seedlings as only high energy rate.
