Something is automatically moving my seeds around.....
« on: October 26, 2009, 11:53:23 AM »
For some reason, when I start playing my level 8 game on the main story, something is automatically moving my seeds around.

It randomly zooms in on my planets...

It moves my seeds from planet to planet...

It builds trees whenever it wants...

Did I do something? Is this apart of the game?

I cannot stand it.

It's really weird.

Does this happen when you launch 8th level again?

Actually, this is our "Idle mode". To quote ALex:

Oh, looks like I left in the idle mode - if you hold ctrl while starting a level it will attempt to play on its own a bit and show off some of the graphics. Sorry about that, just don't start levels while holding ctrl

If it's not a bug and it only happens when you hold down ctrl, I say it's a cool feature.

I vote to keep this in the game. Though, when a level is started in this manner, a dialog or an icon appears somewhere on the screen to indicate that idle mode is in session. Perhaps on the to-right corner, the text "Idle Mode In Progress" should be present?
