When raising a baby gacha, fill their inventory with stacks rare mushrooms. They don't prefer them over other foods, but they will eat them if they have to and each mushroom regains alot of food. This will keep them from starving. This is really easy on aberration. They will still drain your berry troughs, but this will give you peace of mind when you've got other things to do. "UP" if this helps at all.
Gachas are essentially living lootboxes and resource farms. They will eat anything (including stone, wood, or fiber) and turb it into crystals which can drop a variety of resources including black Pearl's, organic polymer, or obsidian, among other things. They also have a rare chance to drop higher-tier crystals which turn into upgraded armor and tools
Gachas throw temper-tantrums when not mate boosted. So remember if you want to farm them keep them far apart from same sex gachas and each should have their own mate. Ex. 2 f and 1 m can make them get jealous with purple lights and vise versa.(they will refuse to take anything and won't produce anything.
In order to get the tamed Gatcha to drop loot crystals make sure you have owl pellets and stone in its inventory. 1 owl pellet + 20 stone per loot crystal. If you have tamed snow owls just park them near the gatcha and the gatcha will pick up the pellets automatically.
The Gacha cannot be carried by any Extinction flyer. They also require being spread out about 12 foundations apart IF they’re the same gender. Breeding pairs are okay. You must manually turn their resource collection ON after taming; it is off by default. They eat meat as babies and all levels should be placed in Crafting Skill. Also, take a look at their production tab! Each gacha has a custom loot pool and you can choose specific resources for it to drop, which will NOT impact your chances of getting items.
Less work? Y traps decent production and easy. If you have 12 planters of Y traps no green effect, harvest all y planets with ano pallets(each stack of 10 is 1 pallet. In 15 mins will give 14-15 crystals. Leaving you a few more stacks in gacha. Every 12-15 mins y plant are to be harvest again.
Warning: Do not throw anything you want to keep on the ground near them! Both babies and adults will automatically pick up and EAT IT! Found out the hard way when a tribemate tossed me an Indy grinder near a baby gatcha...
