Re: not sure if a bug: dumpster diving for ingredients gives 80% meals instead

@rottenmeier For me it's the other way around. Diving for meals gives me ingredients / harvestables most of the time. I get it, they're edible, but one mushroom doesn't really qualify as a meal, does it?

@IIvoryy Wonder if they are switched.

@rottenmeier what are you getting when you dive for meals ?

Actually, yeah... They could be. But I still get the right thing about 30% of the time. Shouldn't you just get either one from doing the appropriate action?

I don’t even have the option for ingredients... I just have deals/meals/compostables/recyclables :/ I thought perhaps they changed it, does anyone else not have that option? I’m playing the game in English.

@Supermeringue It might be related to some trait you need to have. I haven't played much but haven't seen it either.

You might wanna use this thread instead: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/UNSURE-Dumpster-not-having-all-options-availble/td-p/9187079

I also have those issues. When diving for ingredients, almost 100% of things I find is food (usually also of better quality than those found by diving for meals). When diving for meals, around 70-80% are harvestables. Also, not sure if this is related, but I only find bits&pieces, dyes, and upgrade parts when diving for deals, never when for ingredients (which I would expect to be in this category).
