Hey all Today we are finally breeding baby dinos in ark survival evolved!
When the Mating bar is complete, she’ll drop a fertilized egg. She won’t be able to mate again until a subsequent Mating Wait interval has passed, which is indicated on her HUD. (Males can mate as often as needed.)
The Fertilized Egg itself only incubates when dropped, not in Inventory. When dropped a Fertilized Egg won’t spoil, but to incubate it must be kept at a certain temperature range depending on the species (this also factors in insulation). If outside of this temperature range, it won’t make incubation progress, and it will lose “Fertilied Egg Health” over time and be destroyed if zero. This is all indicated on the HUD when looking at a fertilized Egg, and its description also tells you its Parents.
After being fully and successfully incubated, the baby dino will pop out of the egg. Babies initially have extremely low health and carrying capacity and food, so you need to carefully feed and take care of them in their first moments of life, or they’ll soon die. They dynamically can carry more, gain more HP, and food capacity, as they mature over time. Babies are unclaimed initially, so you should “Imprint” on them to claim them after birth.
Babies can not be ridden or attack until FULLY MATURED (for now). They’ll flee any fight.
The Baby’s base stats are a random combination of its parents’ base (original pre-tamed) stats, and so are its colors. This is where things get interesting:
Because the baby randomly inherits any of its parents’ stats, the baby can have more “total” stats than either parent. For example, if you had a Trike Male Parent with “Natural Max” HP (Max wild stats all dumped into HP), and a Trike Female Parent with “Natural Max” Stamina, mating the two of them together COULD result in a baby with BOTH Natural Max HP AND Natural Max Stamina. You could then mate said baby (once grown) with another baby (once grown) that happened to inherit Natural Max Attack Damage & Natural Max Inventory Weight, to create an even more powerful 3rd generation Trike. And so forth. By using this (random but 70% biased towards inheriting the better stats) selective breeding, you can breed out the stats you don’t want, breed in the ones you do, and eventually with enough effort, breed a complete max-base-statted Uber-Dino… and the world shudders.
However, you don’t get to see the stats until after the Egg is hatched, so that could take some effort 😉
As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing & starving on a mysterious island, you must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, & build shelters to survive. Use skill and cunning to kill or tame & ride the Dinosaurs & primeval creatures roaming the land, & team up with hundreds of players or play locally!
Here are the creatures that currently support babies. More will be added later this week (including the Flyers etc), and we should be getting to the mammal pregnancy lifecycle next week:
