[Beta 13] (spoilers) Compactor not attacking Gs
« on: May 02, 2024, 09:17:21 AM »

As visible in the attached screenshot, Compactors apparently don't attack Golems.
This one was capable of going as far as fully integrating a weapon before dying to corruption!
I'm guessing this a is bug with the faction system.

Good thing i (accidentally) found that out in my adventurer mode bug-seeking run, would've been annoying to try to drop a GOLEM Unit to distract Compactors with no effect in a more serious run.

Yeah it's not a bug, just a built-in limitation of the faction system. You can actually create similar situations with Golems elsewhere, not just there. They don't have their own faction and when spawned hostile will actually share a certain faction that might be used for non-0b10 unaffiliated hostiles in other cases. This is just how it's built and is not currently planned to be expanded since the assembled don't have or generally need their own faction. Golems hostile to you will technically be friendly with some other interesting parties in the caves!
