So, my thought is instead of making it so you could only find eggs from your own planet, maybe double the explore time or something of that nature to the other planets. Like you're accounting for the time your creatu takes to get there and back.

There should be a filter tab option for resting creatu so people can easily find the creatu who just finished exploring.

What I like about it

I like that there is an attempt to make a more elaborate system to improve the explore system and that stats like happiness and health are given a use finally. I like that you can select from pacing to change the priority of items picked up too. I’m yet to decide on my thoughts on intuition level because not tried the explore enough to see how easy and effective enough it is to level.

What I don’t like about it

Honestly too many restrictions. I am a player that prefers to only keep on my profile 1-3 of my favourite pets. My favourite creatu are from different planets and some of my favourite are not even adult stages.By restricting it to only being your home planet, the species needing to match it and it having to be adult I feel like dissatisfied that I can’t even use and level up all of my favourite pets and have to resort to using junkers or less likes pets to explore.

Suggestions

Personally I would rather you removed all restrictions on only being able to search very specifics but I suspect your intention is to  push the planet exclusivity angle going forward with this game based on all recent updates. May I suggest as a compromise you change the restriction to all creatu  being able to gather eggs on your own planet with the species matching bonus implemented. It would mean you can still only get eggs from your own planet with the species bonus still in place to incentivise using pets from a matching planet.
Secondly a minor thing  or two in but I would like to suggest there being more ways to increase the max health of a creatu. Also if your creatu returns from exploration It would be nice to have the option not to receive any undesired item along with the option to place any items in inventory/merchant/gallery.

I can say nothing about the new feature, because it doesn't work for me. I use Laptop and Firefox.

I clicked on Explore, than Atquati (my active pet was a Murren) than explore again in the blue line. All I got was this:

Explore Rescreatu




Here you can choose to explore the universe of Rescreatu... if you dare.
 You may find riches on your searches or be plagued with misfortune.
There are four known worlds in Rescreatu. They are known as Scria,
Relcore, Reiflem, and Atquati. What will you find on your expeditions?

Nothing more. :(

I haven't used the feature much yet, but already my biggest complaint is that you can only explore your home planet. The dropdown even gives me an option for Reiflem when I click on my Ebilia but then it pops up that I can't do it anyway. I see the push for planet exclusivity, but I also think that there are some things that should be shared. I'm ok with certain species being able to only hunt on certain planets (imagine an Ardur trying to hunt eggs in Atquati, hilarious image) but if you have a profile pet that can hunt somewhere I think they should be able to be sent there regardless of what planet you live on.

Edit: Another thing, I don't think the pet that's exploring should vanish from your profile entirely. There should be other ways to make it impossible to interact with, but I think it should still be visible that you own the pet somehow (profile, side bar, etc. All of them). I know I would be the kind of person that sent a pet out, forgot, and then panicked when it wasn't on my profile. Perhaps even still allow us to check their stats somehow, like what books they've read or what food they've eaten, since those stats are now becoming super relevant and I, for one, would want to be able to check on them (obviously not affect them) at any time.

"So, my thought is instead of making it so you could only find eggs from your own planet, maybe double the explore time or something of that nature to the other planets. Like you're accounting for the time your creatu takes to get there and back."

Interesting idea. I wouldn't mind exploring this a bit more.

"There should be a filter tab option for resting creatu so people can easily find the creatu who just finished exploring. "

Agreed.

"Secondly a minor thing  or two in but I would like to suggest there being more ways to increase the max health of a creatu."

Yes, now that more stats have a use we'll have to introduce more mechanisms to train and interact with them.

"Also if your creatu returns from exploration It would be nice to have the option not to receive any undesired item along with the option to place any items in inventory/merchant/gallery.

So the ask here is to be able to have an ignore list for pets?

"Another thing, I don't think the pet that's exploring should vanish from your profile entirely."

Hmmm... the pet is always still shown on your explore page though. It doesn't vanish completely. Just want to make sure you knew this.

I'm trying to better understand this complaint. While its true only adult pets can explore, if your favorite pets are not in adult form you can still explore with them if they have an ageless effect on.

I dont mind the ageless extracts but at the moment the newly released shrine creatu such as viarindi, feiron you cannot use ageless extracts on them. So one of my fave pets being a middle staged feiron I woulnt be able to use him to explore unless he was an adult. Ageles extracts being usable on these creatu also would be a nice solution there. Other than that would be nice to be able to have pets from say scria be able to hunt eggs  on your home planet if it was relcore  even if it is at a reduced effectiveness from them not being adapted to the planet compared to pets that match the same planet as your home planet.


"Also

any items in inventory/merchant/gallery
For this one unless I am using the feature wrong when a creatu returns and you get the items there is only an option to lock an item or remove it to your inventory but if I dont want drindian eggs for example it would be nice to be able to choose to discard items a creatu has found instead of having to accept them and then go to the hacthery to delete them. Nothing major just would make it a little smoother. Though an ignore list would also be a nice alternative too ^^

Good point. Noted, we'll have to think about this one.

"For this one unless I am using the feature wrong when a creatu returns and you get the items there is only an option to lock an item or remove it to your inventory but if I dont want drindian eggs for example it would be nice to be able to choose to discard items a creatu has found instead"

I see what you mean now! Yea, I think a delete option on the item is a good idea.

I did see that it doesn't disappear from the explore page, but it would just be more convenient to still be able to see its stats and everything from whatever page. Just have the "select" option disabled while they're gone exploring (and make it so you can't trade it away during that time obviously). Just helps me stay more organized in my head and if someone is more scatterbrained it might introduce a few moments of panic if they just forget that their pet is out or something.

Also seconding the cool idea of "it takes longer on a planet you don't live on." I like it a lot. It's like you have to wait for them to get to and from the portal.

Bug report -
A few creatu I sent exploring with food items attached, came back after a decent length hunt time, with all 3 items still. Items were not showing as their images like before I sent them to explore, instead they were showing as question marks, so I thought they had found 3 new items on their explore.

I apologize if this was already mentioned..

It would be handy to have some way to sort my showroom pets by stats. That way I could quickly find my most intelligent pets, for example. It would help me figure out who would be best to send exploring, and who needs some improvement.

Love this feature! Thanks!

Since intelligence has a factor in this. It would be helpful to take the breakable effect off the older retired books. Since no one is really going to take a chance of breaking one of those.

I can see the point for breakable on common books easily found, but not on the older CS books or retired books.

@tea, this is not a bug. All items in a pets inventory become hidden when they are exploring, even the ones you've given them.
