Animal Page Templates
Domestication[edit | edit source]
You can breed Animal Page Templatess in the following biomes: x, x, x, x, and x. Acceptable temperatures for mating and offspring are between x-x°C (x-x°F). Your newborn Animal Page Templates will be ready for you to claim it after x hours and x minutes and you will need to keep the egg extra warm until then, between x-x°C (x-x°F).
Feeding Baby[edit source]
It will eat from its inventory one Edit (or similar food) about every x seconds. A newborn can only carry enough weight to hold a few units of food so you won't be able leave for very long between feedings. Once it can hold more, each full stack should give you x hours and x minutes away from baby.
About x hours and x minutes after the baby is born, the maturation meter will reach 10% and the baby will become a juvenile. After that point, the young Animal Page Templates will better handle temperature swings and it will be able to eat from a Feeding Trough, allowing you to leave it alone for longer periods of time.
Keeping Baby Comfortable[edit source]
When possible, arrange to raise the baby someplace that won't stay too far above its comfortable temperature range for too much of the day. It is easier to heat an area than it is to cool it, so keep that in mind when setting up your nursery for each species you breed.
To keep the baby warm enough, have plenty of Wood Wall Hooks with Torches in them mounted around the floors and walls in the fully enclosed area where you will be raising the baby. Maybe also install a Lever set to the same PIN as the hooks so you can trigger them all at once if you like. This will help you keep your young pets alive during any cold spells.
If you need to cool the area, you will need to use Ice Boxes. To power them, you will need to have visited a frigid region ahead of time and stockpiled enough Ice to keep the boxes active until the heatwave passes.
Beyond the initial imprint when you claimed your newborn, you can also gain a very useful imprint bonus by cuddling with your new friend. The cuddle timer ("Wants Care In" timer) is eight hours. Cuddling or taking a walk with it as soon as possible each time the timer elapses will increase your new Animal Page Templates's stats. It will also provide a nice rider buff once you can saddle it as an adult.
A 100% imprint will give an additional 30% damage and defence bonus while the pathfinder that imprinted on the animal is riding it. If you can't arrange to increase the imprint every eight hours, don't despair. You'll still get a bonus based on whatever imprint bonus you did get while raising your new little friend. For example, a 50% imprint bonus will still get you 15% more damage and defense; it's not an all-or-nothing thing.
Notes On Timing[edit source]
Successfully raising a high-imprint offspring—or even just keeping your new buddy alive at all—can take quite a bit of time and good scheduling. So here is a rundown of the relevant times to be mindful of:
- Mating time: 2 minutes
- Gestation Time: 2 hours 15 Minutes
- Baby feeding every 1 min 50 seconds
- cuddle interval: 8 hours
- 0.1% maturation = 143 seconds
on OFFICIAL Servers: to 10% approx 4 hrs
