More Dodo Utility Tips
I recommend breeding these guys for size as soon as possible. They unlock cool new abilities as they get bigger!
Size 1.55: now drops dodo feathers off its back, used for crafting items like sail plume, dodo decimater, and dodo cultivator
Size 3.00: you can now ride them without saddles, and equip dodo decimater and dodo cultivator.
How to breed for size:
Select biggest male and biggest female dodo
Build a 1x1 pen (doesn’t need roof)
Put the dodos in the pen
Enable wandering on both dodos (tap skull icon in top left corner)
Pick up fertile dodo egg
Make campfires (at least 2)
Fuel campfires (at least 20 fuel per fire)
Drop egg next to (not on) campfires
Wait for egg to hatch
Claim baby (skull Icon)
Feed baby (they eat a lot)
Wait for baby to grow up
The new dodo will be anywhere in between his parents sizes, most likely on the edge, with slight variation (size 1.00 and size 1.50 would have a baby of size range 0.95-1.55, most likely bigger than both parents)
Other breeding facts:
Mating bar: at 100%, a fertile egg will be laid
Maturation bar: at 100% it will progress to next stage of growth. (Baby, juvenile, adolescent, adult)
Imprinting bar: increases strength when working for you (whistling, riding)
Wants ____ in __:__ giving it what it wants increases imprinting
Fun fact: did you know, you can get twins and triplets from eggs? The chances of this happening vary by species.
Hope you find this helpful!
I put 3 dodos in a room they had a babby i put the egg into a fertalization room with ac and camp fires it died soon after, but i come back 8 days later and there is a 4TH DODO THAT IS 99% DONE MUTRITIONING so use thach floor thach walls and thach roof and doors and just let em walk around
Dodo's have a chance to lay an egg every time they poop. So force-feed them a bunch of stimberries (That will make them poop, and lay eggs)! Just make sure that you have some regular berries because it will make their food go down. Never again will you have to worry about obtaining Dodo eggs. You will only need to tame one!
