Harvesting Behaviour that appears to collect plants.

This behaviour has not yet been migrated for use in multiplayer Experiences.

  • Walk and gather specific assets within a defined zone - Its β€œgathering rate” can be changed within its parameters - Can flee once it detects an enemy nearby - Peaceful NPC that doesn’t attack any targets

Common Uses

  • "Harvesting" or "collecting" any Object using Gathering Tags (vegetables on a farm, groceries in a store, scrap metal in a wasteland, trash to recycle, etc.)

  • Use cases where Objects need to be randomly removed without a destroy animation

KNOWN ISSUE Farmer behaviour only detects and removes objects placed in a location with an even y axis coordinate (vertical). Workaround: Adjust the position in the Properties Panel or with the Move tool.
