Viktor Humphries needs help. This crazy scientist has made a virtual version of the Far, Far Range and it's a little glitchy.

Getting to him might take a little while for newer players though. You will need to have first unlocked the Ruins, purchased the Lab Ranch Expansion, unlocked the Treasure Cracker MKII, and then complete a Range Exchange request with him. Viktor’s Slimeulation does sound amusing though, with you using "Viktor's patented debug spray" to reveal glitch slimes and suck up as many as you can before his virtual world becomes too corrupted.

That's not all though, there's quite a lot more than just this simulated world to the update. You will also find a bunch of new gadgets like the Slime Bait, allowing you to attract specific slimes or the hilarious sounding chicken cloner.

There's also a new free and completely optional cosmetic DLC, made simply because players asked for it as another way to continue supporting Slime Rancher. It's such a fantastic game, I'm not surprised it's done as well as it has to enable Monomi Park to continue giving it such big expansions. I'm guilty of diving into Slime Rancher quite often, just to run around and play with the Slimes.

You too can become a rancher, as it's available on Humble Store (DRM-free plus Steam key), GOG and Steam.

Just installed this (plus the DLC) yesterday and it has made the "real" Far Far Range a bit glitchy. My textures are all wonky. My daughter plays it too and it wasn't as bad for her, but she got some weirdness too. But it is fun, despite the textures!

Hmmm, try this as a launch option.

No change for me, but I've e-mailed Monomi Park support. At least I can *play* the game, even if it looks odd....

Seems like this bug is affecting all of us linux users...
thankfully the game is still playable even with this transparency issue, hunting dittos is another nice grind

The "Secret Style Pack" adds some really cool looking slimes.

Monomi Park is looking at the issue. If you haven't e-mailed their support person/people, you should definitely do that and maybe they'll be able to track down the problem more quickly. When I sent them my bug report, they said they could do with more logs to try and figure out what's happening.

Yeah I've sent a bug report now too, I'm sure it will be fixed soon. Odd the usual workarounds don't work, must be a bug in their own game rather than Unity this time then.
