A Question About Undead Temples


#1

Are they not meant to give loot anymore? I’ve been tearing them down for something like a couple of weeks and there’s been no dropped treasure, just stone to loot. Did @max99x do this just to mess with me?


#2

It’s been like that, though. The drops were always from mobs or from the treasure chests. The treasure chests spawning rate did decrease a little bit. If the undead building spawns, just look for a treasure chest, if there isn’t one, you can expect there to only be drops from the mobs.


#3

There have been no chests at all. It’s been that way for a while, but there used to be chests.


#4

Bumping this, because NOT getting loot from the Undead Temples is making it a downright bear for me to get the dusty tomes required for Monkey’s Shrine. I’m halfway into my second year on this play through and I’ve only gotten one from a random giant zombie guarding a treasure chest. That tells me that it’s the only way I’m going to get the tomes and that zombie doesn’t pop up that often.

This is getting ridiculous.

Really.

(EDIT: Oh, and @Nikia - The mobs associated with the temples haven’t been dropping loot, either.)


#5

I’m having the same problem with varanus spawned in a varanus nest in swamp biomes. They have loot defined in their files, it is actually the same varanus spawned in default random missions in the game, but they drop nothing. I remember an issue where critters were dropping stuff twice through the trapper, once because the trapper killed it, and once more for being killed in general, I can’t remember if that was fixed and if so, if it is the cause of the lack of loot in many entities;


#6

I believe they said that (the trapper thing) was intentional, so I doubt they changed it. As far as I can tell, though the only place dusty_tome is referenced is in the chest_mystery_high_random loot_bag, and nothing seems to use that loot_bag unless something is combining strings somewhere to form that alias.

Edit: it looks like the RC mod adds dusty_tome as a loot drop from crypt_loot_chest and zombie_chest.


#7

The problem is that the crypts aren’t dropping loot chests. They’re just getting destroyed and the only salvageables are hunks of stone from the destruction of the crypt itself.
