Mutation Menu-1

The Mutation Menu as of the newest stable build, 0.9.2. Question marks indicate genes that have not yet been unlocked.

Menu

The Mutation menu allows an animal to mutate any of their 42 genes. To do so, the player must click the second helix icon in an animal's summary. This will open up a GUI with two empty slots, and clicking on one of them will open up a menu of selectable mutations. As indicated, mutations have a 50% chance of actually being applied on confirmation.

Mutations can be used to add new genes, but it can also be used to override unwanted genes or increase the chance that an existing gene appears, as the chance of inheriting a gene doubly stacks with the chance of mutation.

Mutations

When certain genes are placed into the mutation slots, the box will turn green, indicating that, with each new child, there is a chance that a new gene will be unlocked in the menu. If a gene is successfully mutated, a yellow circle will show around the gene, and it will be dominant and recessive. However, incompletely dominant genes, like fur color, and co-dominant genes, like paw genes, have a chance of mutating on one or both slots.

Unlockable Genes

There are various ways to unlock new genes. Some examples include: mutating them, exploring new tiles or completing a specific action.

Tips

  • Bearyena-specific genes can be unlocked by inviting friendly Bearyenas into your tribe.
  • For mutations that require unlock conditions via hopping islands, multiple islands may have to be visited to actually unlock them.
  • When attempting to unlock the Toxic Body mutation, it is prudent to pick from Toxic berry bushes using only tribe animals with poison immunity; as doing otherwise will harm animals and shorten their lifespan majorly.
  • Saber Tooth Fangs, Digging Trunk, Armored Body, Mammoth Foot, Megaloceros Horn and Hammer Tail can be unlocked by inviting ancient animals into your tribe, which can be found from Ice Blocks in Mountain biomes.
