Are tree roots coming back soon?

So, with all of the new world size stuff, I went out and bought some crowns so that I could get my hands on them for myself. The additional Halloween items are a nice incentive to get them now too. Unfortunately, I am torn in regards to buying one at the moment, since I love decorating with the trees that naturally generate in temperate worlds, but their roots are currently not generating. What I would like to know is if the roots will be coming back before the cobwebs and bone piles stop generating or not. If they are, I'll gladly hold off on buying them until then, but if not I guess I'll just buy the worlds now.

    Oh, cool! I guess I can stop making a mad dash for every cobweb and bone pile I see then, since their generation is permanent.

    Tree roots will return... soon (a weird issue cropped up). Bone piles and cobwebs are permanent.

    Will the trees generated before the fix have roots once again? Or only the ones generated after? @mikelaurence‌

    Is the issue firmly rooted in the code?
    Will you have to cut off the issue at the root?
    Did you try checking the root directory?

    You know, if you say "root" enough times, it stops sounding like a real word.


    We're rooting for you, Mike.

    I think it would be impossible to give them roots again unless they do every tree manually, right?
    Okay, so I guess I'll have to hold off buying a world for a while. Thank you, Missy:)

    We obviously need to get to the root of this problem, however seeing how the roots don't generate is quite flax-inating.

    I'd hate to dig this thread up, but it's been nearly a year since the tree roots have gone missing. Are they ever coming back? I was refraining on buying a world until they've returned. I haven't heard anymore word on the matter so I was wondering if this was still going to be resolved at some point?

    I never even knew roots existed (in the game). This is all news for me!

    Roots still do have their texture,you can see the roots in old worlds that had them before the disappearance of the roots.Maybe they'll return "soon"

    Do you happen to know a particular name of a world that still has these mystical "roots" ?

    Maybe New Hills in middle spawn will work?

    They were nice, about 6-7 extra wood per tree. Hope to see them come back "soon".

    Why on earth would you be saying finger multiple times in a short period?

    You have now! They used to not have that block of dirt in the middle, too. I forget what gen version that happened with.

    Try Experiences>Random and you will find plenty of old trees with roots.
    Here is some at Glibtippy Village.

    Major grave-dig, but I'm still wondering about the roots. I want them. It makes collecting an absurd amount of wood very hard.

    I didn't realize they were gone till now. Okay now I'm furious. What was the reason why they were removed?!
    :smiley: (Totally not furious due to the smiley face, but still).

    EDIT: I just looked and saw that I commented on this already, when I read it I was thinking of cobwebs and bone piles for some other reason.

    I thought that you could still get wood by mining underneath trees, it just looks like wood blocks.

    Maybe I'm mixed up... (goes and checks)

    EDIT: oh. nope. dayum.

    I remember when roots existed... I kinda want them back too...

    Maybe I have some in my world I made before I left...
