It defines how energy is given to veggies, Peter. There is a bunch of different options for it.

You're right! The veggie settings on the General tab controls anything with chloroplast nomatter if Repopulate is on or not. Damn! Now I have to tweak and start my eco sims all over again.

Not true. If a robot is not set to Repopulate, it should reproduce unlimited. You are doing something else wrong, or it was a hack. At any rate I am not going to act on it until I have enough evidence.

In any case the settings now are just so horrible and it is causing big problems.

You worked on them with me, you did not think they where horrible then, did you? Oh, that is right, you where sorry that I was leaving and the chloroplast stuff went your way (the messed up way) Quoting a PM here.

Unless the repopulate button doesn't work when the settings are changed.

It is not a button Panda, it is a checkbox.  :P

What I said here is right:

...the"Repopulate" settings override the bots dna...

Which I didn't like at first, but when investigating this I got confused and said this:

The veggie settings on the General tab controls anything with chloroplast nomatter if Repopulate is on or not.

..which is wrong.

So I conclude that it works as it should. Sorry about the fuzz.  :blush:

hmmm... ok my sim has leveled off energy vise so far. I am thinking of a fix here, by correcting chloroplast formula by population. Let see what happens.
