No Raw Science Blobs

Recommended Posts

Console: XBox One -- OS version 10.0.19041.3503  (rs_xbox_release_2007.200709-1200)

Glitch: The floating blobs of raw science which can be found out in the world do not exist. They're not even simply invisible... they are entirely not there. I asked friends where to find them, looked up locations, etc. and none of them are present anywhere in the game. The only raw science I can get is from completing quests or doing analysis.

Cause: I have no idea. I didn't change anything in the settings. They're just not there.

Repeatability: 100%

What Have I Done To Fix It? Everything I could think of. I kept going to check if I needed to progress more in the story, even though I know all of my friends had them available from the start... that wasn't it. I started a new game. It didn't fix it. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game. It didn't fix it. There is no solution I can find.

I've done some testing in multiplayer with a friend who I know can see the blobs.

He created a game of his own and we joined at the same time. There were NO science blobs in the game.

So then we tried again, with him creating a game without me. Our goal was to see if he could go to a science blob and then see what happened when I joined, but now he wasn't getting any science blobs either.

I'm getting this same problem and though I love the game it's making me want to stop playing entirely until there's a fix. I didn't even realize they existed until I watched a video someone made with them and, based on the comments section of the video, many other people aren't getting them either.

I, too, have started multiple games now to try to get them to no avail (though after almost 40 hours of gameplay I'm hesitant to reinstall). After my latest new game not only can I not find orbs, but I can't cut down spider webs either and I was able to before so it seems like with each new game I lose functionality.

I know some people are getting locked out of the lab or BURG.L is disappearing and that that's a known issue but I really hope the devs explore why so many people aren't seeing orbs at all. Also apparently those who can see the orbs say that the SCAB alerts them when nearby but my SCAB only alerts when there's an analyzer lab nearby. I see no point currently in updating my SCAB with the few RS I've been able to grind if I don't get orbs in the first place.

I'm loving the game so far but it's incredibly frustrating to have to grind so hard to get raw science through only analysis and quests. And the more in game days that pass, the enemies seem to spawn more quickly and in numbers but I barely have enough RS to upgrade to floors and stairs (not nearly enough for better fortification). Please please fix this soon!

For the devs: in your known issue list you state that raw science orbs disappear but that implies that they ever appeared to begin with. I just want to be sure you know that some of us have never seen one to begin with. I've played three separate games for over 40 hours, have looked in single and multiplayer, and haven't seen a single one ever.
