The Overgrowth is a ranch expansion set in a small closed-in plateau filled with thick grass and flora, with natural food nodes and chicken spawns. It is themed after The Moss Blanket. The teleporter to Ogden's Retreat sits just outside its Ranch entrance.

Slimepedia Entry

The Overgrowth is an expansion to the ranch that is covered in moss and tall grasses. The thicket it creates allows for fruit and veggies to grow naturally and attracts the occasional wild chicken, making it an ideal space for a rancher that wants to let their slimes roam more freely.

Usage

The Overgrowth is laid out in a roughly square shape, with a large rock formation in the middle which can be climbed for a more aerial view. The expansion is notable for having a high spawn rate of Hen Hens, as well as three natural hanging Pogofruit trees and three Carrot plots.

The Overgrowth's buildable plots are located far away from each other, allowing the freedom of keeping dangerous slimes corraled here with little fear of negative behaviors not confined by their corral causing Tarr outbreaks. The plot at the back of the Overgrowth in particular is boxed in, making it ideal for isolating Dervish Slimes. The variety of the food available by default may also make the Overgrowth ideal for free ranging slimes, especially on Casual Mode.

The entrance to the left of the Overgrowth contains a Static Teleporter leading to the bridge leading to The Moss Blanket, however the Tabby Gordo must be burst to activate it. The ramp leading to The Docks is also accessible there, but must be purchased before it can be visited. The entrance to the back leads to The Beach which is only otherwise accessible with a Slime Key.
