Flying Creatures Issue in Underwater Air Pocket and Bloodstalkers Dying There
I feel like I found a safe place to put my creatures. There's a square pocket of air in the ocean biome around 25/44. Unfortunately, they don't really like this area. My flying creatures don't stay grounded. I moved them there with the help of the Awesome Transporter mod. During and after moving them from the bog, I noticed some were at the very top of this air pocket. I lost one Stego to a Megalodon. I also noticed at least one Carno, Daedon (pig), and Pteranodon basically swimming above. I had to rescue them. I finally decided to use the S+ Hitching Post in the Structures Plus mod to make sure they all stay put, but my flying creatures still don't stay grounded, they're forever hovering above ground. I did notice that if they are unhitched they'll land eventually. I've reported seeing creatures glitch through the bottom of the map while in the bog, but I think something like this may have happened in this air pocket, too, as I lost some Bloodstalkers. I know this is a minor issue, but I think this is a really nice and safe place to store my creatures. I am playing in single player mode. Now I'm looking at the other air pocket I discovered from Sl1pg8r's video, though that one seems to be better for some rarer resources.
*Update* So, I found a Tapejar of mine flying just above the water above this air pocket I described. I removed the hitching post it looked attached too, but that didn't fix it. I took an Argy, teleported to my island then flew to the Tapejar. It couldn't follow me, because it was still hitched apparently, so I used the fly command to fly up to it and unhitch it manually from it's radial dial. Then, I had it follow me to land. Then, I teleported back to this air pocket. I decided to try this whole thing again and I used the fly command to unhitch all of my flying creatures, just as I had done to the Tapejar. They all landed. Everything was fine when I teleported out and then back in again. Then I got into the game menu and hit "quit game" to go back to the game's main menu. I hit Alt-Tab (I think) and backed up my files and then went back into the game, so I never did completely exit the game. I went back to that air pocket and my flying creatures were stuck flying again and my Bloodstalkers looked like they were in free fall. I telported back to the bog, but then saw that two of my Bloodstalkers were killed, so I went back to the air pocket and my last Bloodstalker was killed. Luckily, I regularly back up my game files and I reverted to a file when they were alive and I just took the Bloodstalkers and kept them back in the bog. I want to move out of the bog due to the insect swarms, maybe I just need to find a better place that isn't so out in the open. But, I'm just reporting here that there seems to be an issue with having creatures in this air pocket, maybe they just don't belong there, but it looks like a great place to keep them and have a base.
