Among the facilities of Jurassic World Evolution 2, we find habitats, directly related to the behavior of dinosaurs.
How to know the needs of a dinosaur
Each species of dinosaur has its own needs: some are more comfortable with more space, others need water, others live with more specimens of their species … To find out what each one needs, you have to send a jeep from the Response Facility to interact with the animal. You can do it manually, or assign it as a task.
As you can see in the example on these lines, our Carnotaurus is in an enclosure where it lacks Water and Sand. This can be verified by looking at the bars next to each need the value has to be outside the red part. Pay special attention to Coexistence and Population: the first indicates the number of dinosaurs of its own species that it tolerates in the enclosure, while Population, the number of dinosaurs in general that it tolerates. The rest of the values are easy to interpret. However, a dinosaur with Coexistence Problems must always be isolated from others.
Keep in mind that if a dinosaur is comfortable, it will not try to escape the enclosure, or at least it will not do it as often, which makes it essential to get them comfortable as soon as possible.
The fences are the barbed wire that delimits the dinosaur enclosure. In general terms, your dinosaurs should always be inside one of these enclosures, which must also have a source of electricity. Otherwise, the dinosaurs will escape and you will have to catch them, return them to the enclosure and fix the fence.
Gates are placed in fences and serve as medical and response teams to enter an enclosure. They can be opened manually by interacting with them, but it is not recommended, since the animals would escape. Place at least one in each enclosure .
The feeders are placed on land or in the water, depending on whether they are fish or not. Before placing one, you should take into account the type of food that the species or species of dinosaurs in the enclosure like some do not accept dead meat and you must place live bait. Don’t forget that herbivores don’t need feeders, only vegetation.
In this section of the construction menu, you will find all the forest, water, fruit, or soil needs of the dinosaurs. They are divided into the following categories:
- Nature: you can place elements that add Forest, Leaves at ground level, Fiber at ground level, Tall leaves, Fiber at height, Fruit at height, Fruit at ground level, Nuts at height, Nuts at ground level, decorative shrubs or remove foliage.
- Water: allows you to create lakes. You can resize it to fit within the confines of your fence.
- Feeders: it is the same option that we have indicated above but from another section of the menu.
- Painting: with this option, you can place the type of floor. You can “paint” the ground to be Grass, Rock, Sand, Dirt, Rock (of another type), or Grass (of another type). Be careful, this is not a simple skin, it is about changing the type of soil to fit what each dinosaur is looking for.
- Rocks: to place rocks.
- Terrain: This allows you to create elevations and hollows or level the terrain.
