Quick question, I checked out a mostly empty planet a few months back and found a substantial number of bandits in the area on the ground. At least 1-2 groups per plot. Now, however, I'm having terrible trouble just finding one.

Did the rate of spawn change? Haven't been keeping up with all the sim news lately.

Are you on a Gas Giant (they dont spawn on those anymore) and with the new sensors revamp you have to move around and try to find them like creatures.

Most likely the second thing. Bandits no longer show up outside of your sensor range.

No, I'm not on a GG.

Also, I'm flying around with 8 sensors, and get out to use my maco-binocular enhanced vision to get almost a complete look at the area.

Just creatures, no bandits.

Just bad luck, then. Happens sometimes.

On this topic, can you leave a city where you killed bandits then return to the same city and have more bandits spawn?

Leave as in go to another tile and double back, yes. Leave as in hitting travel and cancelling, no.

It was the first scenario. Thank you.

Ten as the question involved cities I think it might involve:

Can bandits spawn in cities? Which last I heard was a no.

We're talking about terrain squares.

Ah, forget I said anything.

I killed a squad of bandits today, while on a GG. So unless they changed it in the past few hours, bandits DO spawn on GGs.

Bandits AND Creatures both spawn on Gas Giants (I have no idea if that's intentional or not), and now only within sensor range. I did have a problem trying to kill them though, because I get an error when I try to exit onto the terrain. I assume I'm missing some piece of equipment, or it's a bug.

Well, nothing has a gas giant terrain allowance (not even with items) at the moment, so though creatures and bandits may be there, it's impossible to hunt them.

Alright, I'll rephrase my question given that I'm leaving the planet anyways, do "Darkness" controlled planets not spawn bandits?

I'm staring at two parties right now, on a Darkness controlled planet.

I apparently has a really had a really unlucky couple of days worth of searching, then. On a separate note, you don't have to deploy rocket launchers. Neat.

Of course you can hunt them Ellias. Land > Spot Bandits/Creatures > Slab > Hunt

Year 13 Day 234 20:14
Fair enough, but thats an expensive way of doing it, plus they won't spawn there any more.
