Tired of euthanizing babies that end up having poor stats? This mod is for you!

Simply select your fertilized eggs in the Best Egg Maker and click 'Make Best Egg' and your dino babies will have the best stats taken from any ancestor found nearby.

This will look for the best stats from anywhere in either the father's or mother's ancestral lines. So even if you want to blend in some cool colors from dinos with not so great stats- you can! And the Best Egg Maker will just fix those stats back to the best for you.

  • Works on any Fertilized Egg that has Ancestors in range (default ~16 foundations)
  • Best Egg Maker custom UI shows you what stats will be changed
  • Pulls stats from all nearby egg ancestors, not just the parents
  • Preserves mutations! (even if from the lesser parent stat!)
  • Works with Water Eggs / Gestaters (Mammals etc) / S+/SS Mutator

  1. Craft & Place the Best Egg Maker structure
  2. Mate your dinos to produce fertilized egg
  3. Bring fertilized egg to the Best Egg Maker
  4. Make sure the egg parents, grandparents, or other ancestors are nearby
  5. Place fertilized egg in Best Egg Maker, select it
    • Egg information will be displayed in center of inventory screen
    • This is telling you what will happen if the egg is valid and its ancestors are nearby
    • Valid eggs are fertilized and have tamed dinos as parents
    • Ancestors are the egg's parents, grandparents, etc
  6. Click the 'Make Best Egg' button
  7. Incubate & Hatch your Best Egg

No, only of related ancestors

Will this machine take the best stats of all dinos of the same species around it?

Best Eggs will only function with eggs that have ancestor information.
I will not be changing this as it is a core aspect of the mod.

i have asked orion too however adding such option to this add on can help as well
Flockerkill Apr 13 @ 5:20pm 
or ask the auther of s+ to fix their eggs
Mr G Apr 13 @ 5:09pm 
very awesome mod, just wanted to ask is it possible to have a setting that only checks for same type of dinos nearby to extract best stats ? by this it will be compatible with s+ propagator eggs since it will only need same type of dino not exact id

Hey would it be possible to add a function in which allows one to select or unselect certain stats from being upgraded? Things such as oxygen, food, and speed aren't necessarily useful when it comes to breeding best dinos if the stats count as breeding levels at baseline.

If this is possible to add, it would be much appreciated.
