Found a bug? Need emotional support? Let's figure it out here.
What do u do if the air is too dry(I have the bathroom)
Hi, glad to hear you enjoy the game! There's no way to do that right now, sorry :(
not a problem! Thanks anyway! guess I'll just have to take care of TWICE as many plants!! hehe :)
Hopefully you don't get fired then say bai to your plants but still you have even more chance of getting rares.
Can you make it available to choose what kind/color of picture frame for the framed pictures?
Actually, you could research all your plants and write down the seeds and import them on your home computer using the nursery. You wouldn't have your your items, but you could have some of your plants. ( you'd have to have some more to get enough to buy the nursery and your plants that you are importing, of course.)
thanks for the idea! Unfortunately, I've been working from home the past few weeks due to the coronavirus. Hopefully when this blows over, I'll be able to do that!
And the list:
What is a real team player mean? and the aura one? Can you tell me what they all mean? pls?
like the name suggests it's a plant with multiple-colored flowers
-flower color gradient
once again like the name suggests it's a plant with flowers that fade from one color to another color
the plant's leaves have stripes
like the name suggests again the plant's stem is multi-colored
-fancy stem color
the plant's stem is an odd color
-small but strong
the plant is mini
the plant is big
-a real team player
the plant has multiple stems
I'm unsure about the other two.
That definitely sounds like a memory leak! good catch, i'll see if i can find it
What is a memory leak?
A memory leak is a bug that can occur in software. A game can ask the computer for memory–but after it's done using the memory, it's supposed to return all of it to the computer. A memory leak happens when the game fails to return some amount of memory to the computer. Over time, the game asks for more and more memory and never gives it back, so it "leaks" from the computer to the game
dang, i'm sorry to hear that. the game is supposed to automatically save, but with all the different versions of different browsers out there, some folks have run into problems before. what browser are you using?
also on chromebook, could be part of problem
hmm. ok. haven't tested on chrome book yet but in theory that shouldn't have any impact. have you updated chrome recently? are you using an extensions that might aggressively block sites from tracking you? possible that some extensions could prevent the game from storing data
can goguardian do this? I use school chromebook, so that might be it.
Hmm, not sure about goguardian, wasn't able to find any details about how it might affect saving. Tell you what: could you email me @ email@example.com with as many details re: this as you remember? I'll see if I can get to the bottom of it
Huh, never seen that one before, thanks for letting me know. I'll look into it.
And re: making it downloadable, yes, that's a good idea. Wouldn't be too tricky, I'll see if I can get to it soon
well that's one hell of a glitch
hey, thanks for playin, & glad you like the game! great points re: UI & plant placement consistency, I'll look into those when it's time to update
thanks for letting me know!
Oooooh, I love that plant though. Do you have the seed still?
Hello! They should save to your Desktop. Are they not there? (Also, are you on Mac or PC?)
hey! try buying cheaper plants–use your leaves to buy a garden plant and it will make more leaves :) (all plants make leaves early on, and blossoms once they're fully grown.)
You get more leaves from younger plants.
Example: You just bought a new garden plant. It'll make leaves until it's fully grown.
you can recycle them by storing them and clicking recycle in you inv or you can buy a new plant
Aw jeeze, sorry to hear that. A couple of people have lost saves on browser versions, and I can't nail down the bug–seems like it's really inconsistent. Sending you love and plant-energy!
the sad part is that I lost all of the plants that had rare traits
I can always rebuild though, so it's not too bad
aaaand it seems lady luck has had some pity on me
also I have a screenshot of my two star curling vine so I might be able to get that back
won't be able to get her twin sister back though
i lost half of my plant
Glad you're liking the game, and sorry to hear that it's not saving! You can download the game on this page, the downloaded version will save correctly.
Also, what browser are you using, if you don't mind me asking? I've been trying to track down this bug for months
For some reason It's saved this time after multiple times making me start over.
I'm using Google Chrome! I hope this helps for future bugs.
Glad it's saving! And hmm, ok, that's mysterious, Chrome works fine for me. If you're willing to, could you tell me what kind of computer you're on, what version of chrome you're on, and if you have any chrome extensions? Thanks!
I do have extentions, quite a few actually; but these two in particular have caused me problems in the past, maybe it's these? I can list all of my extentions if necessary.
Hmm, sorry to hear that. What browser are you using, or are you playing a downloaded version of the game? (If you're using Chrome, are you using any extensions?)
If you're playing in browser, I might recommend starting a new game via the download–it's hard for me to keep track of problems in the web game because there are so many different variables involved
I do use Chrome, yes. The only browser extension I have is Grammarly. To add, I've had Grammarly before I played the game, and it hasn't affected anything.
Most likely because chrome just sucks it happens with my chrome too so that's why I stopped using chrome. Not your fault it's the computers. I also recommend downloading the game, for it not to lag.
Hey, thank you for the kind words and the glitch reports! The settings tab closing is bizarre, I've never heard of that glitch. I'll keep an eye out. Planning on adding windowed mode in the next update
Hey, sorry, that's not available at the moment. It's in high demand though, I'll see if I can add it soon
Just letting you know this is now implemented!
Hmm, that's very strange, never heard of that glitch before. What kind of computer are you using?
In the meantime, best advice I can would be to try stashing your plants, and then taking them out of the inventory and putting them back down again. Also, try closing the game window and reopening it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
I've just got an Asus laptop with Windows 10, nothing special. I'll give stashing the plants a shot, I haven't tried that yet!
Edit: That worked for a few minutes, but immediately after buying a third plant the issue arose again, and stashing the plants won't fix it this time
Huh, jeez. Again, sorry about that. My only other advice would be trying to delete your game and reinstalling, and also erasing your save file and starting again. You could also play in browser. I'll try and see if I can replicate it, but there's something weird happening on your laptop that doesn't happen on mine when I test.
Hey, sorry, some people have trouble saving, and I haven't been able to replicate it! If you can download it, I'd suggest that if you're having trouble in the browser version
I'm having the same problem, downloaded version for Windows using the Itch.io app.
Hey, thank you for letting me know! Do you think you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? I think I can maybe find out what's causing this bug if you're willing to download a test version of the game.
Hey, sorry, I'm still trying to find this bug. It's something a couple people are running into. Hopefully I can fix it soon
I think I'm having the same or similar issue? I've been playing for a week, and at first I thought "oh maybe these plants grow in real time" but I feel I'm probably just stuck on this screen:  Well the image uploader isn't working either, but I am on the starter plant, and it tells me to click on it but I can't. [edit again] Uninstalling and reinstalling worked. Thank you for going on this emotional journey with me.
Hey, so glad you like it! I think you're actually at the end of the list, so there's nothing more to fill in
Hey, sorry, that's not something that's available right now. I'm investigating downloading / importing saves for another game rn though, so maybe it will be available in the future. You could save seeds you like and grow them at the nursery on the DL'd version?
Hi quimler! Thanks for letting me know. What version of the game are you playing with? And could you please send the crash reports to email@example.com? I'll try to get to the bottom of it!
Hi! Thanks for the kind words :)
Re: your bug, it sounds to me like the hard reset got your savefile so corrupted that the game can't even open the menu! Reinstalling the game wouldn't fix it bc the save file lives on your computer, not with the game files. If you're willing to poke around in the files, you should be able to delete the save files manually, and then just start over w a new game:
~/Library/Application Support/overfull LLC/plantdaddy
In either of those cases, if you delete everything in the "plantdaddy" folder, the game should be able to run no problem.
Sorry for the kind of arcane fix! And if you try it, please let me know if it works?
You might have figured this out already, but just put them on a shelf out of the direct light from the windows!
It's a mystery…… (a shower related mystery)
Hey, thanks! :)
It's in the shop, in the furniture section!
I am Also interested in this.
Hey guys! You can actually just download the new version of the game and start using it–your save file doesn't live with the game files, it's stored on your computer somewhere else.
It's probably a good idea to delete your old copy of the game when you make the switch, because it can screw with your savegame if you accidentally open a new savegame with an old version
okay! So just to clarify we replace the whole folder with the new one and it should be fine? Also do you think you could add a thread w download instructions or put it on the download page so it's easy to find for future ref? Tyty!
Yeah, you can just delete the old game folder and use the new one!
And that is a good idea :) i'll see what i can put together
also i dont know if this is something, but i played fullscreen for like an hour or so and the zooms in and out from plant to room gave me real bad motion sickness.
Edit: i think it could be partially fixed by having a Move Mode button or smthn. So you could click that and make everything moveable. It would make it a whole lot easier to organize plants and furniture without moving in and out constantly.
(This is also true for any new plants of those types I purchase or grow from seeds. Forgot to mention that.)
Hmm… sounds like a graphics bug, sorry about that. The game sometimes has too many objects to keep track of and the renderer can't handle it. Are you playing in browser? Might help to switch to download version.
Damn, I'm sorry about that. Thanks for the report and for listing your plugins. You didn't clear history at any time, did you? Erasing history / cookies would clear the game files
In the meantime, maybe try the downloaded version? It is more stable
Hey, thanks for posting these! re: the to-do list, you probably have reached the end of the list! Congrats!
A quick question: did the "room disappearing" bug stop when you refreshed the page?
Have you tried turning that frown upside down?
Hi Featherfrost, sorry you're having problems.
Duly noted! I'll just use the browser version for a while, not a big deal. I hope things calm down for you soon! <3
Thank you for your kind words, appreciate it :)
Hey Strange, sorry to hear that :( were you playing the browser version? People have run into issues with their data being erased from the browser version–if you are willing to try again on the desktop version, that is more stable. I haven't been able to find the source of the problem for browsers yet
Sorry again for this problem, I know it must be frustrating
Hello! Thank you for reporting these bugs! I'm hoping to fix them soon. Can you give me more details about bug #2? Never heard of that before. You just played through the game and it never showed up?
Hello and anytime :) That's okay, please don't rush anything :)
I played it at first on my browser but I wanted to play it as the pc version and bought it (2 days ago). Then I re-zipped it on my computer and started it. I like the background sounds but I wanted to make it quieter. I went to the setting and wanted to quiet it down but it went louder and almost like a screeching noise. It was so painful that I needed to throw away my head set xD
Hey, thanks for sharing! Sorry you lost some progress. I've got an update in the works that should have some data stability fixes
You need the bathroom, As far as I can tell, or the mini-fridge.
Well, I was kinda waiting for the dev but.
While it is raining if you open the windows it should water the plants that are on the window sill but only if the window is fully open.
:) thank you for your kind words! yeah unfortunately you can lose your browser save data if history is ever cleared or erased. if u download the game you should be safe from that!
& I am actually working on a new game with some similar concepts right now, about fossil collecting, so stay tuned for that!
Ah, that means use another person's seed to grow a plant! Check the plant sharing thread for cool seeds
Hey, thanks for the bug report! I'll add it to my list of things to get to. I'm not working actively on this game right now bc I'm finishing up another game, but this is good to know about for when I have time to get back to plant daddy
hmm... dang, that shouldn't be possible! the game is always supposed to make it so you have enough to buy a plant. do you have a plant in the inventory that's not fully grown?
Hey, sorry to hear about this! This looks like a corrupted save to me. I'm not 100% sure how it got corrupted, but you may be able to restore from backup. Here's how to do that (on PC):
Hope this works for you, and sorry you ran into the problem in the first place!
check your inventory--must be a not fully grown plant in there somewhere!
That means you've already seen this plant before! You must've already bought another plant with this same seed. It's happened before a few times before to some other folks, it's very uncommon
Hey! You get new leaves by growing new plants. Once they're fully grown, they stop producing leaves. If you're out of leaves, you must have a young plant somewhere that isn't full grown!
you won! sorry, that's a little unclear
