Can someone clarify if turtles/ship collect halite on movement?


The API documentation mentions “Collect Halite at Origin”.

Does it only collect if the move order is o. Or can it also collect during a movement? For example, doing a collection on the destination of that turn.


Turtles collect halite only if told to do so that turn, or if they cannot do anything else. They default to collecting halite when they don’t have enough energy to move.


turtles collect halite when you give the command “stay_still()”. If they move, they lose halite
