Ballast Flora are a parasitic organism that take root in the ballast Pumps and quickly grow into the rest of the submarine. A ballast flora infection has chance of taking root when pumping water in and the submarine is in a colony of ballast flora spores.
There is a 5% chance of infection per second while the submarine is inside spores & a ballast pump is pumping in water. The flora spores are faintly visible on sonar, and are visible as blooming green spores in the water.
|Pumps||If powered, pumps in water when attacked.|
|Doors/hatch||Close the door/hatch when attacked.|
|Batteries/Junction box||Adds 100-700 extra load per box/drain per battery & store power.
Uses stored power to accelerate growth when attacked.
|Walls||Releases acidic gas that deals Burn damage to humans when attacked.|
The ballast flora defends itself when attacked by releasing burn-damage causing gas, as well as by controlling pumps, doors, and hatches. Cutting power to the pump will prevent control.
Ballast flora takes half damage when in water.

- Ballast Flora was introduced in 0.11.0.7
- According to roadmap, can be killed with chemicals; however, this is not yet implemented as of v0.11.0.10.
