So, with the revamp of creature features, when spawning is turned on, will creatures with a homeworld spawn only on their homeworld?
Or will it be like buying npcs, where they are more likeky to spawn on their homeworld but can still have a random chance to spawn anywhere, given the appropriate terrain?

Related question: Will the existing creatures in ridiculously unsuitable locations be removed when the new spawning system is enabled?

Kaira, unless the spawning rules are changed with creature combat, it will be like it was previously - creatures with a homeworld listed will only spawn on that planet. Allowing a greater chance for spawning on its homeworld is an interesting idea, especially with the number of creatures we have, but I have no idea how easy it would be to add.

Hal, do you mean creatures that were spawned before spawning was switched off? If so I think there is supposed to be a time limit or something similar that removes the creatures later. Otherwise we could of ended up with thousands of creatures swarming planets already.

Creatures will have a larger chance to spawn on their homeworld, but will also spawn on other planets.

Hal, I don't think there's plans for that atm, but I'll ask Sin.

I'm pretty sure the people with packs of a dozen rancors on top of their facilities won't necessarily be too happy if they persist.

No, as far as I know this does not include me.

Can I get a little clarification on this rule?

Creatures will only spawn on planets where there are no characters, vehicles, ships, or other creatures except the character and their party.

Oh, and Owen is wrong...

Just asked Sin, and currently homeworld listed creatures spawn only on that planet. May or may not change after creature combat is released, but that is how it stands now.

We're probably going to purge all creatures before the release and let them populate again in a controlled manner.

I'm going hunting!! I bet I can kill faster than you can spawn.
Also thanks for the answers I was wondering this to but was to lazy to post it.

I too am going on a hunting expedition! I don't know what I'm going hunting for yet though, any recommendations for a good hunting ground?

People just need to market it properly.

Hopefully some governments will make hunting/poaching laws.
