  1. Thanks guys, I'll give it a shot. Seems like the hardest part is finding a high level queen, only run across < 100 currently.
  2. So I know where the queens are, I know how to build a trap and get pregnant, I managed to gather 14 pheromone glands, and now I'm ready to do it. I have a few questions to those who already did it: How many glands will I need in the process of raising the baby? Will the level of the queen which gets me pregnant be of importance, or can I just get pregnant from a level 1 one? How much time will I have to gather XP once I am pregnant? Whats the recommended way to max out XP once pregnant? Just go crazy with a rock drake and KoS everything, or maybe craft something? What should be taken care of to not lose the baby? I've heard radiation kills the baby (which is weird because I will get pregnant in the radiated area oO), and I've heard that dying will not kill the baby, but reset the gathered XP + timer Anything else? Thanks for your help guys
  3. Please see my last comment here: I have never set/changed the cuddle interval.
  4. Take a look at http://ark.gamepedia.com/Breeding#Times_for_Breeding You will see that every dino has different times for hatching and maturation. Those times are affected by the multipliers, so it is not possible to have every dino grow up in 30 mins, because the base time is different. For the options: MatingIntervalMultiplier - affects how soon you can mate dinos again after mating. Base mating interval is 18:00-48:00 (random), apply the MatingIntervalMultiplier to get the new interval. E.g. a setting of MatingIntervalMultiplier=0.1 will result in a 1h48min - 4h48min intervall. EggHatchSpeedMultiplier - as the name says, affects how quickly eggs will hatch. Again look at http://ark.gamepedia.com/Breeding#Times_for_Breeding, in the incubation section the time column will give you the hatch time for a dino, e.g. 5 hours for a rex. I have a setting of EggHatchSpeedMultiplier=10, which makes rexes hatch after 30 minutes. BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier - affects how quickly babies will grow up. According to the breeding times, a rex will roughly take 92 hours. I have a setting of BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier=10 which makes it go ten times faster, resulting in a duration of roughly 9 hours. For the other options, you can change the cuddle interval so you get imprinting bonuses more often - but they will have a smaller percentage. The default interval is a random value between 3 and 4 hours, and the % you get with each imprint is calculated as the max (4 hours) divided by the total maturation time. So decreasing the cuddle interval (= setting a value lower than 1, which is the default) makes care taking happen more often, but the % you get will get smaller. There is a lot of math behind it, and it cannot be configured so that all dinos grow at the same speed. It will always be different. So best you pick a dino (e. g. rex), and think about the desired breeding/maturation times, and set the multipliers accordingly. Hope this helps.
