A new update is out for Plantera that is set to fix all (most!) of the issues that have been reported in the bug thread. Especially the infamous bug where sometimes a plant plot would stop producing is now finally solved, among many others! :) Also hoping to be able to add more content upgrades in the future!
If you find any new bugs or issues please report them in the bug thread that is linked at the bottom!

Thank you all for all the support, feedback and ideas for the game so far!

The only game I played while I was away was Plantera [official site]. Actually, the main game I played was “going for walks and exploring local nature and wildlife” but I put a few hours in on Plantera because it’s a clicker game I could let run while I caught up with Holby City episodes.

The new update is out! :)
Thank you to everyone who tested it in beta!

The main change in this version is that the building mechanic have been redone to show a visible outline of the available slots where you can place a plant, bush or tree. This should make it much easier to see where you can build and also get rid of the problem of placing the trees at the edge of the garden that was a problem for some users.

A new button have also been added to the HUD that that let you scroll to the middle of your farm instantly (or you can press W).

Some other fixes has also been made, among others are improved windowed mode and some improvements and bug fix to the Loot Hero.

This time I am rolling out the new update as a Beta update to make sure it is working as it should before releasing it publicly! So if you want to test out the new beta to make sure it is stable I would be very happy : )

New update is now out that fixes some issues and also adds some new small things.

Firstly there is now Ladybugs in the game
These small creatures will arrive at level 5 or later and will spawn somewhere on your farm whenever you level up. They are very small so they can be hard to spot, but if you pan your garden back and forth you should be able to find it wandering around somewhere. Collecting the Ladybug will give you a lot of gold and xp, the Ladybug is currently the most valuable pickup in the game. A new Achievement have also been added that will unlock when you have picked up 10 Ladybugs.

Other fixes that have been made are among others:
- Smarter Helper AI
- Loot Hero camera bug fixed
- Bug fixed where some effects would not disappear
- Sheep are now happy after they have produced their wool!

After many requests I have now added the Plantera Soundtrack as an optional DLC! :)

There is also a new update for Plantera that fixes some of the issues that have been reported, (still working on the ones that are left!).

One nice feature that have been added is that you now get a popup on the screen when the Loot Hero have come to your garden. Just click on the icon and the camera will zoom to the Hero. This is great if you like to play the game muted, but still want to know when the Hero has arrived!

Another note is that you can now press the ESC key to cancel things like buying and trashing, instead of having to click on the cancel icon.

The new update is now out, featuring the Scarecrow!
The Scarecrow will protect the garden against magpies and also increase your offline gain by a small amount. The Scarecrow is using its own slot between every third bush, so you don't have to worry about sacrificing any of your other plants to put down the Scarecrows. In the future I would like to also use this space for other kinds of items. As always, any ideas for such items are very welcome in the Game Suggestion forum :) (link at the bottom of this post)

There have also been some additional adjustments and hopefully bugfixes!

The Loot Hero have come to Plantera!

The Hero can appear at your farm and will start to run across it, bashing all mean critters in his path. More importantly you should click on him as crazy as he does his run, as every click gives you a lot of gold and xp! Every single click on the Hero have the worth of your current level, multiplied by your manure level. This is a fast way to rack up a lot of gold and increase your level!

The appearance of the Hero is rare though and you need to be at least level 10 to have a chance of spawning him at all.
There are also some things you can do to increase the likelihood of the Hero spawning on your farm.

These are:
  • A high level. The higher your current level the more likely the Hero will appear.
  • Being active and working in your garden. The more things you pick up and harvest the greater the chance the Hero will appear.
  • Some things are more effective then others. Collecting butterflies, (especially the yellow ones) is by far the fastest way to increase the likelihood of the Hero appearing.

Expanding your farm now also have the benefit of creating a longer path for the Hero to run, thus giving you more time to grab his loot!

*One easy way to know the arrival of the Hero by the clanking of his armor!*

8 new achievements have also been added!

Some other adjustments and bugfixes have also been made!
