0.1.9 hardest island -spoilers-
So I just got to the hardest island, the new hardest island that is. I didn't use the mutation menu as I've been challenging myself for luls.

I was like "Oh, this isnt bad"

I was terribly wrong, I just ran into one of those killer carnivores, I WASNT PREPARED FOR THIS. My creatures arent extinct yet but it's a race to breed in good genes.

Has anyone else made it there yet? And if so, what is your experience?

How do you get it to 0.1.9? I know I have to use the code "super mutation" but I don't know where to put it in or how ;-;

you have to right click niche in the steam library then you press the properties button then press the betas tab then type in the bar you can type in SuperMuatation

It isn't working. It says it's invalid or the beta was already previewed. I tried bot "SuperMutation" and "supermutation" neither worked. Is it in the 0.1.5 selection, or the first one? I'm confused.

maybe its GeneExperiment but i thought it was Supermutation but we might also be spelling it wrong

Just killed a Killer Carnivore, lets just say poison and large groups of creatures is key

I was finally able to breed the right creatures to travel to killer island (2 males, 2 females, each with unique immunity genes). Luckily my warriors were strong enough to deal with the killer carnivores- it's pretty terrifying when your creature isn't strong enough, all you can do is run! I do wish the carnivores spawned a little faster- it seems to be 1 every 2 days, which isn't that challenging when you can kill the regular ones straight away. However, I'm prepared to eat my words if two killer carnivores spawn at once. D:

Even though there isn't a lot of food on killer island, I'm actually doing just fine- started with 500, now I'm up to 700 with a tribe of around 20. It might be a glitch, but I could sit and swipe a trapped koi fish and got around 3 food with each hit. Even after 5 or so hits, it didn't die unil the turn was over. I'm not sure how to fix the food situation unless maybe the amount gained by normal carnivores is halved, and only killer carnivores give 10 food.

A little off topic, but streams make it really easy for land-creatures to hunt fish, which makes aquatic genes redundant (plus, in my experience it's way harder to catch fish in the ocean).
im ready to eat my words as well when i say that maybe killer islands shouldnt have rivers or at least make the rivers larger so its harder to catch fish
