  • The Wedding Rings - to mate your dinos easily, they will stay in place while mating
  • The Pacifier: auto-imprints your baby, you can carry your baby, toggle baby growth and set flyer to fly or land
  • The Hourglass: set the age of your dino

-new pacifier ini entry (see below)
-several bug fixes
1. The items do not need to be used, this is done automatically (because of the gacha eating the items)
2. The Pacifier buff: You can now set your flyer to fly or land (from juvenile up to adult)
3. Changed crafting costs for the pacifier

Wedding Rings
For easy mating craft the Wedding Rings. You get two rings when crafted one.
Put each ring in the dinos inventory, they are activated automatically.
The dinos will start to mate. You do not need to set them to wander.
While the wedding effect stays on the dino, it is unable to move.
To deactivate the effect, use the pets radial menu.
Remove Wedding Effect remove the wedding buff.
Crafting cost: 2 metal ingot - Player level: 20

Put the pacifier into baby's inventory and choose "Use" on the item to activate it.
The pacifier will now start to auto imprint your baby.

You will find three(flyer: four) options in the dinos radial menu (if not disabled in the GameUserSettings.ini - see below)
Stop Baby Growth
If you choose this option, the baby will stop to grow, it will not be auto-imprintet and it does not need food until you start the growing again.
(This option can be disabled in the GameUserSettings.ini: see below...)
Crafting cost: 1 sap, 1 dye pink - Player level: 20
Pick Up (can be disabled in GameUserSettings.ini - see below)
You can carry most of your baby dinos. It depends on the weight of the dino. Some young dinos are too heavy to lift, others are too heavy even as a baby like a bronto.
(Sometimes releasing the carried dino does not sync correctly, the visual dinos size changes to adult, but not the age - this is an Ark issue, because the dino is scaled to adult size while throwing. The aberration crab has the same issue, try this to see the issue: with left crab claw pickup a non-adult dino and release it again...)
Fly or Land Flyer, which are at non baby age, can be set to fly or if flying to land.
Remove Pacifier Effect remove the pacifier buff.

To set the age of your dino, put the hourglass in the dinos inventory and use it.
The dino gets three radial menu entries:
"add 1% to age" and "subtract 1% from age"
Remove Hourglass Effect remove the hourglass buff.
Crafting cost: 1 crystal, 1 wood, 1 stone - Player level: 20
You can disable the engram for the hourglass with the game.ini entry (see below)

When I have a baby born I will place the pacifier in it's inventory and it will show the imprint level matching the baby maturation, which is expected. What's weird is that if I also do manual imprinting (i.e. cuddling the baby), its stats will end higher than if I just let the baby mature alone with the pacifier. I did this using the Perfect Egg mod, so I know the babies should all mature the exact same. Can you think of why this would be? By the way, I LOVE your mods. I use more than just this one, so thank you!

@lycanshifter, sorry. no there is no option (yet)
Lycanshifter Nov 25, 2020 @ 4:05pm 
hey. dont think you saw my previous post.

anyway of having a option to auto make dinos a baby and adult. having to mouse click 80 times can be tiresome.

@{APEX} Cat' perhaps this will do:
->GameUserSettings.ini (server side)
NoStayBaby: True

If true, the "Stop Baby Growth" radial menu entry is not shown (default is False)

I run a private dedicated server, and it seems every time we restart the babies we've stopped age on grow up. Is there a way to prevent that?

Let me explain why I downloaded this mod.

So I have a couple of trikes leashed, and didn't realize one was male. I come back with a giga after a meat run, walked past the leash, and found four dead adult-juvie trikes mine had birthed, and four live babies.

Didn't feel right to let the little ones grow up. I was taking down a flyer perch mod which sadly doesn't work anymore, so plenty of room.

Love your randomly colored dinos! Thanks for the great mods!

@Alex see the description above, there is a config for that.

hello, is there any way to disable the imprinting effect on the pacifier and only use the "pick up" function? I was having troubles with babies falling through floors and not making it up ramps, etc and this mod was the only one I found with baby carrying. I really want to tackle the imprinting myself but would love to be able to carry the babies. Cheers~

@Maeggan Passe this is strange, but i don't want to rule out that ark mechanics have changed and so this mod... i need to test it.

Does this still work? I hadn't played for a while, and logged in to my Single Player game to find all my babies had grown up. When I'd last quit, they were set not to age, and they all still have the pacifiers in their inventory.
