The furry animnals

Post by mgo » Tue Feb 25, 2014 2:34 pm

Hi all,

I am playing Ooolite quite a while. At some point I must have hit the wrong button and bought one of those kute looking little animals. Now thy block the view on teh screen, they eat my furs in containers. Any chance to get rid of those nasty creatures? Poison, phaser, laser?

Any ideas welcome.

Manfred

I hear they're good with BBQ Sauce.

Cute little critters - as mentioned, they're very tasty with BBQ sauce.

You can get rid of them, but doing so is a mission, so people won't want to give the answer here on the forum in case it spoils it for someone else ... the hints, above, should put you on the right track, though!

You should love your pets, not exterminate them. Take them for a nice holiday somewhere sunny.

I have yet to get a trumble (except once I pushed the wrong button, but I just reloaded my savegame and got rid of it...) mostly be cause at first, before I read about them in one of the OoFics, (Virtuous Misfortune, if I remember correctly.) I just didn't want to have to take care of a pet.

Is there something that you get for getting rid of them? I think I know how, but I don't want to risk it if there isn't something that would benefit me. :mrgreen:

In other words, I will just have to try it and find out? :lol:

You can always save beforehand if you are really that concerned about your trumbles. Don't Panic, we wouldn't tell PETA about your trumble genocide if you happen to succeed, anyways.
