Do you think Pet Collars are too rare?

  1. Yes. And I wish they could be removed/reusable.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? According to Steam, I've logged nearly 150 hours with the 1.0.(x) of Starbound. (Back when I played Koala, I mostly played it without Steam.) And, so far, I've found a whopping one Pet Collar! And I only managed to get that through repeated plays of the Fossil Game.

    Looking at the .treasurepool files, I can see why. The percent chances for getting a Collar as a fossil game treasure are very rare. And the chances of getting one as random loot or a random drop are almost infintesimally small.

    What were the devs thinking? It's bad enough that Pet Collars are one-use only. I was very disappointed in that decision. But to make them so darned rare seems like adding insult to injury.

    It's so bad that I've installed a mod to make pet collars craftable. And, currenly, I'm trying to develop my own mod for a method to make collars removable.

    I've run into between 10 to 20 randomly generated chest loot collars exploring high level planets?

    At one point I was selling them all for the pixels because I was getting so many that I didn't need. Granted, there should be a pet collar vendor with the same mechanics as Lana the EPP Augment vendor.

    :checks locker:

    :finds unused collars out the wazoo:

    :checks on healing collared pet that dies all the time.:

    Seems okay, given enough chests and challenge rooms.

    You deeeeefinitely need to be able to get the collars back methinks-and don't get me started on the Augments, like??? I was SO overjoyed to have found a light augment since the 1.0 EPP return removed the ability to use the light source backpieces, but then you upgrade it ad the augment is GONE? What a cruel world....

    I think both the method it's used and the availability is fine. Just explore more, and being one use makes you think about it more than just slapping it on whatever
